When you spend 14 hours a day, 6 days a week in front of your PC, dark circles become a feature of your face so much that you fail to recognise yourself without them. Well, that’s just my story. I had darks and puffy eyes and was looking for a cream that could at least get rid of my dark circles if not both. After a thorough research online I finalised one cream and went to a beauty store to buy it, but the smart saleswoman somehow convinced me to buy Biotique’s Bio Seaweed Revitalizing Anti-Fatigue Eye Gel. She told me that since I have oily skin this gel will be good as it will not cause a breakout. And just like that I took her suggestion and bought this gel. I was sceptical about using this gel only because my experience with Biotique Bio Clove Purifying Anti Blemish Face Pack was not that great which is why I was not having high expectations from this eye gel. But, this product not just exceeded my expectations but now has me addicted to it. How? Well, read on to know my experience using Biotique’s Bio Seaweed Revitalizing Anti Fatigue Eye Gel.
Name: Biotique Bio Seaweed Revitalizing Anti Fatigue Eye Gel
Price: Rs. 199/- for 15 gms
What does it claim?
Enriched with seaweed, this gel reduces and prevents signs of stress puffiness and dark circles.
How to use?
Take a small amount of the gel onto your fingers and gently tap it around your eyes.
Does it fulfill its claim?
Aforementioned, I spend most of my waking hours in front of the PC which is why I suffer from terrible eye fatigue. Though the gel’s name is ‘anti-fatigue’ eye gel, I thought it works only on dark circles and puffiness. But when I started using this gel, I noticed that my eye pain reduced slightly. To check if it was really the gel working I skipped using it for a few days and saw that my eyes would pain as usual. I then realised that the slight stinging sensation that I felt on applying the gel was actually what helped refresh my eyes. So, I started applying the gel twice a day and have been doing so for over a month now and I must say that the eye gel is extremely effective in relieving tired eyes.
The gel comes in a tub with a screw cap and an additional stopper lid which keeps the gel intact. The gel is completely transparent and easily glides over the skin.
When I bought the gel in winter, it used to be of thick consistency, just like a jelly. As the temperature started soaring, its consistency started thinning out and got tad bit runny. The gel is very sticky and the skin feels stretched which is why you cannot apply it under makeup. But, it gets absorbed quickly by the skin so you can leave your house with the gel on.
After using the eye gel religiously, twice a day for more than 7 weeks I did see my dark circles reduce but it did nothing for the puffiness under my eyes. The only thing it worked effectively on was the eye strain I had been suffering from for years.
What’s good about it?
Reduces dark circles
Relieves eye fatigue
Reasonably priced (the one small 15 gm tub has lasted me for almost two months now)
What’s not so good about it?
Does not reduces puffiness under the eyes
I give Biotique Bio Seaweed Revitalizing Anti-Fatigue Eye Gel 3.5 out of 5 rating. The gel does not work wonders on dark circles and puffiness but it does effectively reduce eye fatigue, which was a boon for someone like me. If you too suffer from computer eyestrain then pick this gel right away as it will relieve your fatigued eyes.
