I am back with another review and this time I am reviewing an eye gel from the Organic Surge brand.
I have terrible dark circles! Unfortunately, its heredity 🙁 Even my mom has very dark circles. I have been to quite a few dermatologists and all say that there is no such cure of dark circles, especially if they are heredity 🙁 These dark circles make my eye appear to be sulked in! Hence, I am in constant search of good nude/skin tone color eye liner which can make my eyes pop out 🙂
On my recent visit to a dermatologist with a friend, just by looking at me, the dermatologist said that my skin was so dry! I went in shock for a few seconds! I was like me? my skin is dry? I tend to get zits and pimples and my skin is dry? He was like yes! You have combination skin and only the cheek area is oily and the rest is quite dry. Looking at my sweet, confused face, he explained the logic behind!
What all parts of your body would you say are darkest? No, not hair! I am talking about skin! If you think your elbows, knuckles, knees, ankles and sometimes the skin on the fingers attached to the nails appear darker. Do you know why, because these areas on our body are dry!!! Extreme dryness causes the skin to go dark!
How many of us face hyperpigmentation issue around our mouth area? I do and when I thought about what the dermatologist said, I felt that my skin around the mouth area is quite dry and I often get dry patches around it! So, you get the hang of it? The area around the mouth where one has darkness may be due to overt dryness! Do check yourself!
Similarly, the dermatologist explained to me that darkness around eyes is caused due to multiple reasons and one of them is having extreme dry skin around the eyes! The entire logic fit together so perfectly! Yes, I do have very dry skin around my eye area which is often subjected to flaking! So, it fits the bill! So, this is how I came to about trying this eye gel. I was looking for a gel-based eye cream because I wanted a cream that could get absorbed easily without leaving any oiliness.
Now, let me make a few things clear, I am not saying that all dark skin on our body or hyperpigmentation is due to dry skin only, but I am stating that may be dry skin can be one of the reasons contributing to it. Before trying anything around your eyes, please first get it checked by a doctor! Also, apart from keeping the under eye area moisturized, we should also follow the habit of drinking at least 3 litres of water every day! I know you have heard this a lot and I am sure everyone here is aware, but ask yourself, do you really follow this every single day? I try to but can never follow it continuously for more than 2 days! We need to drink plenty of water every single day! Also, try to get your beauty sleep for at least 7 hours a day, again very important!
Okay, now let’s finally get down to the review! Phew!!
I bought Organic Surge Eye Gel from one of the online websites and got it at a discount of 30%. It comes in a tiny bottle which can easily fit in your palm 🙂 Its quite expensive for a 15 ml product! It costs around 825 MRP. The best part is that its all natural and free of all harsh chemicals! Also, it comes out in a clear gel form and gets absorbed easily without any oiliness. It also moisturizes the eye area quite well. Full ingredients list is mentioned. The packing is quite good and it comes with a small pump. You don’t need more than half a pump to moisturize both the eyes. I apply under the eye as well as on my eyelids. It has never caused me any allergies or problems. Also, with continuous application, it does lighten the dark circles and eyelids to some extent, but not something which is very visible! The quantity is okay, but for the price, I feel they should have given at least 30 ml of the product.
Pros of Organic Surge Eye Gel:
- It contains green tea extract with aloe vera which are natural moisturizers.
- Free of parabens and sulphates, and any other harsh chemicals.
- Organic Surge is against animal testing 🙂
- Extremely light in texture and gets absorbed easily into the skin without leaving any greasiness.
- Comes with full ingredient list.
- It does work on dark circles if applied continuously over a period of time.
- On application, it causes a light tingling sensation, in a pleasant way and makes our eyes awake!
- Moisturizing ability is quite good.
- Packaging is quite nice and sturdy and comes with a pump, so very hygienic.
Cons of Organic Surge Eye Gel:
- The price, I find it is quite expensive.
- No major visible difference on puffiness and dark circles.
- No long term effect!
- For the price, I feel quantity is very less, 15 ml 🙁
Rs. 825/- for 15 ml.
3.8 out of 5
Do I Recommend Organic Surge Eye Gel?
Yes, I would definitely recommend if its available on discount or if you are looking for a non-greasy moisturizing eye gel! Overall, its a pretty decent eye gel, nothing extraordinary and not too bad either 🙂
