Skin Type: Combination and acne-prone; Eye area: Dark circles and moderately dry
Don’t we always hunt for eye creams and gels that could would refresh and brighten our eyes. I got this little pot of eye gel from Olay since Olay is a very good brand and secondly, I got a night cream from the same brand, so I thought I could combine the both to get good results. Read on for more details on this eye cream.
$9.99-10.99/Rs 670-735 for 15 ml.
Product description by Olay:
Delicate skin around the eyes is often the first to show signs of aging. This cooling, fragrance-free gel, featuring a combination of cucumber extract, witch hazel and pro-vitamin B5, revitalizes and hydrates skin to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Revitalizes and moisturizes. Minimizes the look of aging around the eyes. Leaves eyes fresh and more radiant.
My Experience with Olay Age Defying Classic Eye Gel:
The eye gel comes in a big black and midnight violet box which shows the names and the other details about the product. Inside, sits the little jar of the eye gel. The eye gel jar is transparent and the gel is easily visible. It has a black rotating cap which works fine too. The jar is very small in size and hence very handy too. The price is okay for a brand like Olay but we have cheaper drugstore alternatives available as well.
The gel is a clear one, the consistency is moderately thick and perfect for an eye gel. The gel does not have any fragrance which is great since the eye area is very sensitive and fragrance can irritate the eye area. The gel goes very smooth under my eyes. I just dab a bit and let it be. It can be massaged or left as it is as it gets absorbed on its own. It might feel a little sticky initially but nothing after it gets absorbed.
The eye gel does not make any tall claims, but lives up to all the claims that it makes. It provides an instant cooling effect and soothes the under-eye area. It provides a boost of hydration and amazingly hydrates my under eye area. It takes away all the dryness and gives moisturization. My under-eye area feels very soft, smooth and supple. It makes my eye area look fresh and bright. It makes my eyes look youthful. I really loved the effects, but it is a good eye gel only if you don’t have dark circles. This did everything it said, so a great product.

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Olay Age Defying Classic Eye Gel?
