- Yes to Cucumbers Eye Love Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel 1.01 fl oz
Cool, sweet love
One of, if not THE best eye gel I’ve ever tried. I’m into eye creams and face creams big time. I loved the fact that I could use a cruelty-free eye gel. This glides on, soaks in well, and really just moisturizes the area. The ONLY thing that could make this product better is if it also acting as a tightener/eye lift, but I can’t really fault it for that.Tip: Put this baby in the fridge and then use it in the morning before work. Oh yeah!
Not So Soothing…
I bought this product at my local drugstore and had some pretty high expectations since i like mostly all the other Yes To products. They are very natural and have great safety ratings. I was then very surprised that this just did not work for me. Whenever I applied it my eyes would start burning and stinging, so much so, I would just remove it within five minutes of applying it. It also did not provide any additional moisture to my under eye area. The gel consistency is also very hard to apply since it does not melt in right away and usually eye creams/gels are just dabbed on the skin, never rubbed, but this would not absorb onto my eye area without me dabbing for a good while.I ended up giving it to my sister who liked it just fine. So I would not recommend this if you have a dry and sensitive under-eye area. Otherwise, my sister likes it just fine. The scent itself is very light, just like cucumbers.
Used Only When Puffy Eyes Are A Problem
If I get 8 hours of sleep and drink at least 8 oz of water puffy eyes are not a problem. However, this is fairly good stuff when my eyes get puffy. I wash my face with cleanser, rinse with cold water, and pat dry. I apply small dabs of this gel around the eye area. It is refreshing, light, and does not have a greasy or oily residue. The area around my eyes appear refreshed and the puffiness dissipates in a couple of minutes.Unlike other reviewers, i’ve had no allergic reaction or burning sensation. I also like the cucumber scent which is faint and cooling.
There are better products
I don’t like this product. It feels like you are putting school glue under your eyes and doesn’t hydrate the skin at all.
Great as an eye serum with eye creme over it
This stuff really does de-puff your eyes. It is a gel so you only need a tiny little bit and luckily this pump allows for the control do do that. At night after I cleanse and moisturize I dab a small amount of this around my eyes including the lid and let it dry for a minute while I’m brushing my teeth. Then I follow up with an eye creme like hyaluronic from Derma E. This keeps puffiness away and I think when used with under eye cremes it helps smooth your eyes if you don’t sleep on your side. If you do sleep on your side this combo hydrates so much you will see the crease on your outer eye are from how you slept. At around 25 I trained myself to sleep on my back because an older friend told me it was the best thing I could do for my face so this gel really sets my skin smoothly since I do that. Also, if you have ever had an evening of tears and dreaded waking up to put your makeup on the next day this is a god send. Tears don’t happen often in my life but hay no one is perfect and if I sleep with this stuff on then apply again when I wake up and let it sit while I workout and eat, by the time I shower and put makeup on you can barely tell I’ve had a bad night.
