I am a regular follower of this blog and the reviews here have made me purchase products more sensibly now. As my contribution to this blog, this is my first review.
I was very upset with my dark circles and after trying a lot of stuff, I tried “Kaya Skin Clinic Lighten and Smooth Under Eye Gel.”
Lighten and Smooth Under Eye Gel with an advanced active HALOXYL , helps visibly reduce under eye dark circles by dissolving the blood pigments that cause darkening under the eye. It also promotes firmness and tone of the under eye skin.
Glycerin /Steareth-20/Chrysin/N-hydroxysuccinimide/PalmitoylOligopeptide/Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3, Cetereayl Octanoate, Polysorbate 20
How To Use:
After cleansing and toning, dispense an adequate amount of gel onto your finger. Apply gently to the area under your eyes. For optimum results, use morning and evening.
INR 500/- for 15 ml.
No shelf life mentioned on the tube.
My Experience with Kaya Skin Clinic Lighten and Smooth Under Eye Gel:
I underwent a 30-day package from Kaya Skin Clinic, where they treated me for my dark circles and basic facials. After my 6 days of dark circle treatment, I was asked to use this under eye gel. They claim that it removes the dark circles and tones/firms the under eye skin. The texture of the cream is a little lighter than any normal face cream. It dissolves completely into the skin and doesn’t make me feel as if anything is applied.
Normal makeup can be applied post under eye cream application. Though the bottle doesn’t mention anything about the SPF, but the lady at the clinic said, that it has some SPF (may she did that to sell this tube to me!). I did notice some difference in the dark circles after continuous usage of the product, but once I stopped, the dark circles reappeared. It definitely firms the skin under the eye though, but its too expensive for the quantity and works only if used continuously. Honestly, I feel as if I am forced to use this cream and only then it shows the results.
It doesn’t help in reducing fine lines, but the cream never claimed to do so either, but my kajal usually smudges if I apply it post using this under eye cream.
Summing up the review, I am listing down the pros and cons of this under eye gel:
Pros of Kaya Skin Clinic Lighten and Smooth Under Eye Gel:
- Good packaging and easy to carry around.
- Consistency of the cream is light and gets absorbed into the skin quickly, without leaving any oiliness behind.
- It does tone the under eye skin, but only after consistent use.
Cons of Kaya Skin Clinic Lighten and Smooth Under Eye Gel:
- Does not treat dark circles as claimed.
- Available only at Kaya Skin Clinics or pharmacies that sell Kaya products.
- Expensive considering the quantity.
For the price, the under eye gel doesn’t do much. It doesn’t lighten the dark circles, but helps in firming the skin. I will try some other under eye gel or some home remedies to get rid of my dark circles.
