Product description:  Packed goodness almond, this product holds all the essential vitamins and nutrients that are needed to nourish the delicate under eye. It holds a light weight formula that gets absorbed by the skin easily and is meant for treating puffy and dark pigmented eyes.

 

Key Ingredients:The product contains Wheat Germ Oil, Vitamin E, Chamomile Extracts, Olive Oil Extracts, D-Panthenol, Demethicone and Almond oil.

My Experience based on product: it’s a white cream based product which gets absorbed easily without leaving any residue. Mine is a combination skin and till date it didn’t break me out. It has a very mild yet pleasant fragrance which evaporates instantly upon application

My Experience based on Performance
: I have just turned 35yrs and really regret why I didn’t start with an under eye cream earlier. I don’t have any dark circles or puffiness under my eyes but recently I changed my job and now I am having night shifts, which make my eyes look dull and lifeless. After I started using this particular eye cream (which happens to be my first one) I have noticed my under eye looking more moisturized and nourished. I have been using this product for almost ten days and I do see my fine lines easing out.  I religiously apply it twice every day after my CTM in the morning and night and before applying makeup as well. It makes my eyes look brighter and prevents my makeup from creasing.

As I don’t have prominent dark circles so I am not in a position to comment much on that regards but for beginners this is a must tried product.

 

Pros:

  • Moisturizes and nourishes the under eye area
  • Reduction in fine lines
  • Affordable
  • Not oily /greasy, does not break out.
  • Soft and mild fragrance
  • Easy to carry around.
  • Does not sting if goes inside eyes.
  • Eye makeup looks brighter
  • Not tested on animals, recyclable packaging and 100% veg product

Overall Rating: 4

 

For beginners and girls with less prominent dark circles and fine lines this is a perfect under eye cream within budget to start with.

My Experience:

After I got this product I searched for the reviews online and to my despair all were mostly negative. I was sad, very sad. But I had to option because I had already opened the cover box and in no way I could have got it exchanged. But the colour of the packaging which were reviewed was different from mine. They had off-white colored bottle and mine was white. I though after reading all those negative remarks the company had improved on the product and have changed the color as well. This boosted up my confidence and supported me to try the product.

This comes in a white flip cap bottle which is quite easy to carry and travel friendly. It has typical clove smell and lingers hardly for a minute or so and then subsides. This won’t make you feel greasy at all and gets absorbed in no time giving a moisturized feeling. And it does control oil throughout the day as mentioned by the company. Honestly this moisturizer has given certain amount of glow to my face which I currently love.

Basically I like moisturizers without spf so that I can wear them at any time of the day. And this moisturizer has satisfied all my needs. It provides a clean, non-greasy look; add glow and controls oil. My skin is basically normal so I apply a bit more in quantity. But for oily skin I guess not much would be needed. Overall am really happy with this impulsive purchase of mine. However I have a doubt with the ingredient list. If I sum up the quantity mentioned that means there are something else which has not been mentioned.

 

Pros:

  1. Controls oil.
  2. Adds glow
  3. Non-greasy
  4. Affordable
  5. Easily available
  6. Travel friendly
  7. Spill proof packaging
  8. Animal friendly

 

Cons:

  1. Clove smell be overpowering to sensitive nose.
  2. Not at all suitable for dry skin
  3. No spf
  4. Complete ingredient list is missing

 

Overall rating: 4.5.

I will definitely recommend this for oily skin girls who are looking for a good budget friendly moisturiser
