I am a huge fan of the Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment but it is so expensive that I am constantly on the lookout for an affordable alternative. Bear in mind that I have super sensitive eyes that tend to start stinging very easily. So when I decided to try out the Biotique Bio Almond Soothing and Nourishing Eye Cream, I did not have very high expectations but was praying for a miracle nevertheless.
This eye cream claims to be an all in one product that works on puffiness, dark circles, wrinkles, and what not. The formula is enriched with some natural ingredients such as almond oil and sunflower oil. The product comes in the form of a thick cream that melts upon application and releases a nourishing oil on the skin.
This eye cream is quite hydrating and provides some much-needed relief to tired eyes. However, there is one major issue with the product, apply it anywhere close to your eyes and they will burn! That is a bit ironic because it is an eye cream, how can you not apply it near your eyes. Although the moisturizing power of this eye cream is pretty intense, the stinging action makes it a big no-no for me. I feel that the nourishment gets negated by the fact that my eyes tear up and turn red if even a tiny bit of the product goes near the waterline.
This eye cream might work for you if you have super strong eyes that do not react to products or if you can apply it extremely cautiously. It does reduce dryness and puffiness but I haven’t been able to use it enough to comment on its effectiveness against dark circles. A 15 gm jar of this product is priced at INR 199 but is available at INR 150 on online stores. You can give this a shot if you do not have terribly sensitive eyes like me. I wonder when I will find a drugstore eye cream that works for sensitive eyes 🙁
