From Amazon Product Page

The verdict:  I used this for 2.5 weeks, every day, twice daily.
Well, it does make my skin feel smoother (the Hyaluronic Acid combined with the aloe and cucumber?) if I add water or toner beforehand. Without moist skin, it just feels sticky and tight, so be sure to add liquid!
My eyes however, are still just as dark purple and puffy as ever. Which is actually what this product is advertised to be for specifically. So, while it DOES make my skin soft and it smells doesn't do a thing for my eyes. In my desperation I will keep using 
this on my eyes- who knows- and update accordingly. 

AFTER: Still Dark Puffy Circles From Hell

Clear Aloe Appearance

The title for this product is actually :
Eye Cream For Dark Circles, Puffiness, Wrinkles & Bags - HUGE 1.7 OZ - Best Under Eye Gel Treatment Solution For Crows Feet, Dry Skin, Fine Lines, Eye Bags & Sagging Eyes - With Plant Stem Cells, Hyaluronic Acid, Matrixyl 3000, Cucumber, Peptide Complex, Cucumber, Aloe, MSM & More! GET RESULTS or YOUR MONEY BACK!

THE REVIEW: I received the product at no cost plus shipping in exchange for an honest review.
I was looking forward to trying out this eye gel because it claims to correct puffiness and dark circles and I have both as my major skin concern. In big bold purple letters.
It has hyaluronic acid in it as well as aloe and cucumber. All known for smoothing and soothing respectively.
 This comes in a plastic bottle that feels homemade instead of mass produced. The label is a little crooked, the cap doesn't fit so well...i like the thick pump that is hygenic and does not distribute too much.
But the scent: Cucumbers! I love this smell. It smells like cucumber and a little bit of aloe.
The pump bottle distributes a smooth gel like a clear aloe, but feels tacky under eye and can peel when dry.
Before applying to skin, skin should be properly hydrated prior, tacky and tight otherwise, always tacky on eye. You could flood your eye areas and still have sticky eye. Which causes make-up to peel off.
Again, the ingredients are some of the most popular and soothing ingredients together, and it claims to be 100% organic with no parabens. 
Summary: While it does make skin smooth when properly hydrated prior, and it smells great, and it's cruelty did not do a thing for either my dark circles or my puffy under eyes. And it is advertised as an eye gel. I will continue to use on my face and eye area until gone because I do like it as a facial product, but I just can't recommend it for eyes because it did not do a thing to improve mine. However, it does offer a money back guarantee, which can't be said for all products.
Would I buy this as an eye gel? No. Would I buy it for my face? Maybe, if I wasn't actively looking for my dream facial moisturizer/hyaluronic acid serum.


-Hyaluronic Acid makes face feel smoother short-term
-Easy to use squeeze plastic can
-No parabens 

-It does not meet the claims it makes
-Smooth effect on skin is short-term
-Tacky on eye area under or over make-up
