Richfeel under eye gel versus oriflame aloe Vera soothing eye gel
I am reviewing two under eye gels comparatively today. I am more into cooling under eye gels rather than heavy creams. Both have their own place though but for the summers, sleeping with a light under eye gel on feels very nice. Coming back to the gels, richfeel has a line of products and is owned by two trichologists mainly but I have no idea why they have diverged into skin care as well:P oriflame needs no introduction.
Rich feel under eye gel: price rs 100 for 30 grams
I saw this at a local parlour and asked her if she has it for sale. I thought it may be similar to aromatherapy products I don’t know why but at least the pricing was around the same. The tube is quite big considering it’s an eye gel.
(From the tube)Use: The richfeel under eye gel is a unique revitalizing formulation for stress on the delicate skin below and around the eyes. The gel nourishes the skin and makes it soft and smooth.
Directions for use: apply the gel below and around the eyes overnight.
About the gel:
The gel is a very light orangey, almost transparent one and is mildly sticky in texture just like some aloe Vera gel. The consistency is thin but not watery. It feels very light on application and just three circles around the eyes with the ring finger will make it vanish into the skin. It dries up to cool down the under eye skin in my opinion. Rich feel has got some herbal ingredients in it too. Quantity for one application is not more than half a pea-sized. It does leave a very mildly sticky and little shiny feel of course on the skin but I do not bother with it much. I mostly use it overnight and do not recommend using it at the daytime or topping it with a concealer. It’s more like a maintenance product for me not doing much to my under eye shadows or circles. Don’t expect any lightening of dark circles from this one. Just massage it in circles to get the maximum out of it. The only catch is that it may not be available so easily.
Oriflame aloe Vera soothing eye gel: with organic aloe Vera extract:
Price: 179 for 15 ml
From the tube: cooling eye gel with soothing aloe Vera extract.
This gel is again so similar to the rich feel one just that it’s a little thicker and more transparent, fragrance free like the above. It also feels less sticky than the above and doe not have that sticky after feel to it. The tube feels tiny and the quantity required is just the same as rich feel. This one gets absorbed even faster.i likes to leave it over night though if u have to be in front of the computers whole day. U may want to try this for day time as well. This is just a maintenance product again n does not target dark circles. I am not sure about how much it cools but just doesn’t feel like anything under the eyes once applied.
Last word: both of them are good gels so to say. If u have to get an eye gel, I found the rich feel one more cooling but more stickier. Rich feel is also worth the price. The oriflame one is lighter out of the two for day time. Then there is the aloe Vera factor for oriflame as well u if are an aloe Vera lover. Both would do nothing about your dark circles but I find both of them very cooling and refreshing. I personally feel very happy at the fact that I am supplying moisture to under eye skin
Ps: Sorry about the shampoo comb size comparison. Couldn’t find a pen at hand:P
