This is my first article on IMBB and I am really excited. I stumbled into this beautiful beauty world when I was trying to get a review for one of the products and now I keep on refreshing the pages to see if there have been any new posts about any new products. Besides that, whenever I go out to buy a new product, I wait to check if there’s a review about it here so that I don’t end up buying something disastrous! Moving on to the review, I took to review one of the products from Biotique. I had heard so much about their stuff so I headed to their counter and asked the SA to give me something for my troublesome dark (well, really dark) circles. Please read on to see if it was a hit or miss.
This luxurious eye cream lightens and brightens eye contours. Smoothes away dry lines, dark circles and puffiness.
INR 199 for 15 g/0.53 oz
Surajmukhi tail (Helianthus annuus), Badam tail (Prunes amygdalus), Bihidana (Pyres cydonia), Jaiphal (Myristica fragrans), Sikta tail Q.S.
Directions to Use:
Lightly pat around eye area, morning and evening
My Experience with Biotique Bio Almond Soothing and Nourishing Eye Cream:
The cream comes in a sturdy plastic tub. It has a white cap sitting on the top and a screw on cap over that. As with other products coming in a tub, this one too poses that hygiene problem as every time, I have to dip my fingers into it to get the cream out. The cream is white colored and thick in texture. It has a mild herbal smell.
When I applied it on the under eye area, a little got too close to my eye. As expected, it stung badly! But I guess that happens with any cream going into the eyes. The cream has an oily base and leaves an oily film like those heavy winter creams. It doesn’t get absorbed in the skin quickly too. So you can park it aside for day use. I prefer to use it overnight while sleeping as it moisturizes the under eye area well.
I have been using it for a month now and haven’t seen any effect on the dark circles and puffiness. Ya, it moisturizes well, but even our classic Almond oil does that. If you are looking for something for your dark circles, please pass this product as it was a dud for me.
Pros of Biotique Bio Almond Soothing and Nourishing Eye Cream:
• Very moisturizing
• The smell isn’t OTT like some other herbal products
Cons of Biotique Bio Almond Soothing and Nourishing Eye Cream:
• Very thick, oily in composition so doesn’t get absorbed quickly
• Not good for day wear
• Doesn’t help with the dark circles and puffiness
2/5 (just for the moisturizing part)
Would I Recommend Biotique Bio Almond Soothing and Nourishing Eye Cream?
No! Please don’t waste your time with this one. There are better creams out there. Better check out some homemade products on IMBB for your eye area problems.
