I remember I used to hate eye cream when I was in high school because they felt heavy on skin and make my face oily. I also had a hard time finding eye cream that doesn’t irritate my eye area. Even these days, I still look for eye cream that is good under makeup, doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin, lightweight, and can de-puff my eyes. Well, I am lucky enough to get sent this Klairs Fundamental Eye Awakening Gel from Wishtrend to test and review. Honestly, I love a lot of Klairs products. Their sun essence and watery oil drop are my everyday essentials. I have some expectation for this eye gel. I originally want to have a day time eye product to take care my puffy eyes and help with fine lines so here is my review after 3 weeks of using this eye gel every morning.
Let’s start with its basic information:
The eye gel is cruelty-free, vegan, ethanol-free, silicon-free, steroid-free, artificial coloring-free, artificial fragrance-free, and has about 7.40 pH. It claims to help improving dark circles and skin tone while helping with de-puffing and anti-oxidizing. It is formulated as gel moisturizer to provide quick absorption for busy day. Also, it is claimed for all skin type.
Water, Glycerin, 1,2-hexanediol, Butylene Glycol, Propanediol, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Caffeine, Phaseolus Angularis Seed Extract, Artemisia Princeps Leaf Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Chaenomeles Sinensis Fruit Extract, Chrysanthellum Indicum Extract, Cinnamomum Cassia Bark Extract, Diospyros Kaki Leaf Extract, Perilla Frutescens Extract, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Copper Tripeptide-1, Oligopeptide-29, Oligopeptide-32, Carbomer, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, Sorbitan Isostearate, Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside, Sodium PCA, Tromethamine, Ethylhexylglycerin
This eye gel cost $24.50 USD for 35 ml of product. It may be pricey for the amount of product, but we only need 1/4 pump each application. My eyes are small so I just need one drop. I can see this little bottle can last me at least half a year especially I only use it in the morning. I would say this is an affordable eye gel.
This eye gel has a watery gel texture. You can mistake it as essence. It spreads on skin like water and gets absorbed into skin fast. It gives slightly cooling sensation. Once you put it on, you can instantly feel it hydrates your skin and relief the tidiness around the eye area. It also leaves a very thin layer on the skin without any sticky feeling or peeling. It is not moisture enough for people with dry skin, but this eye gel is perfect for people with dehydrated skin and oily skin. It is also the reason why I recommend this eye gel to teens. When I was in middle and high school, I dislike any oiliness or sticky feeling on my face especially I had a lot of acne. I remember I didn’t like eye cream because their creamy texture and felt heavy on skin. I think I would like this gel type eye care product when I was younger. Also, The quick absorption makes this skincare step much easier and faster. We will no longer have excuse of not using eye care product. I usually purposely forget using eye care product in the morning because I have to wait for them to get absorbed before using sunscreen or doing makeup.
I like this eye gel doesn’t have any scent and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. So far, it doesn’t fight with my other skincare products, and I enjoy using it in the morning. My eyelids usually get oily during the day and smudge my eye makeup. I notice this issue is improved since I started using this eye gel. This helps my eye makeup apply smoother and last longer. It also helps de-puffing my eyes, but it is not strong enough. I still need to do eye message for my puffy sleepy eyes. In terms of dark circle and skin tone, I don’t notice any difference since I originally doesn’t have dark circles. I notice there are less dry lines around my eyes. I am not sure this is because of the eye gel or because I started using eye gel in the morning. I will need to use this eye gel for few more months to find out.
Overall, I recommend this Klairs eye gel to people who has oily or dehydrated skin, wants a simple and quick eye care step, has puffy eye, or is currently looking for affordable eye cream/gel. I know Klairs release a new eye cream/butter along with this one. I would recommend my friend with dry skin try that one since Klairs is a trustworthy brand for me. I like this eye gel and will continue use it on my morning skincare routine until my skin becomes less oily and need more anti-aging properties in eye cream.
