Thank you to OZNaturals for sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.
Even though I’m only in my early twenties, eye creams and eye gels are my favorite part of my skin care routine. My eyes are prone to dryness, and also tend to look puffy and dull in the morning. So, creams and gels are my saving grace to waking up with eyes that make me look ready to take on my day… not exhausted or flu-ish.
In fact, the skin around your eyes is the thinnest and most fragile on the face, and needs extra care to avoid damage. I don’t find my face moisturizer quite enough do the trick, because I typically need something a little more rich and friendly for sensitive-skin around my eyes. I also want to target specific concerns like dark circles, puffiness and dryness with ingredients that can help out.
I’ve used a ton of different eye creams and gels across both drugstore and high-end brands, but lately I’ve been using the OZNaturals Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel. This one became my go-to at the beginning of April, and I’ve actually been using it twice a day because I love it so much, especially for its powerful and multi-tasking ingredients.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in your skin, and attracts moisture between skin cells for better balance of hydration. It’s become the “it” ingredient of skin care products, especially for dry skin. Applying at night keeps dryness away, leaving me with moisturized and healthy feeling skin.
Next, I loved that the eye gel contained caffeine to treat puffiness. You’ve probably heard the age-old home remedy of placing chilled tea bags over puffy eyes as a quick fix— and that’s because of the caffeine! Immediately after applying the gel, I can feel the skin around my eyes start to firm up, getting rid of the swollen look that I often wake up with. I like applying a little bit more in the morning for this reason!
Matrixyl Synth’6 lifts wrinkles, while Apple Stem Cells both protect the skin and help ward off early aging. Haloxyl rounds out this all-in-one gel to treat dark circles over time and help firm up the skin.
Aside from the really effective ingredients, my skin just drinks this stuff up. I have very sensitive skin around my eyes, and this eye gel formula feels so soothing. During the night, it keeps my eyes hydrated and I get to wake up without dark circles or puffiness, and in the morning a little bit more helps prime my eyes for the day to come.
This little indie-brand eye gel totally won my heart, and is going to be a definite repurchase in the future. It’s pretty much the same price as other drugstore eye products, but way more effective. I can’t tell you how many I’ve tried that leave me irritated or just underwhelmed, but this one does everything it says it’s supposed to.
