Amphora Aromatics| Seaweed & Aloe Refreshing Eye Gel


This is my first post since my feels good to be back here again!

This is a review on the Amphora Aromatics Seaweed & Aloe Refreshing Eye Gel. It is an eye gel designed for all skin types, claiming to remove make up, soothe and cool tired eyes. It is paraben free and uses pure essential oils and herbal extracts. Aloe vera is a great anti-inflammatory whilst the seaweed is rich in minerals. Knowing that the product is natural was a great incentive for me to try it out. I had been wanting an eye gel or cream for ages so I was really pleased when I received this.

To use this product, I would pump a little bit of the clear, slightly tinted green gel on to my fingertip and massage it into my eyes. I like how the gel is in the form of a pump as it makes it really easy to use and doesn't make a mess. Furthermore, you don't need too much of the gel on your eyes so a little goes a long way (which is always great).

When I first started using this I was a little apprehensive because the skin around my eyes is VERY sensitive and I've been known to have plenty of allergic reactions on my eyelids. However, this product did NOT give me an allergic reaction- so I can certainly vouch for this being great for sensitive skin!

What struck me at first about this gel is that it quickly absorbs into the skin and doesn't linger, which is fantastic if you're putting it on before you do your make up. At first it stays kind of sticky, but after about 30 seconds it fully absorbs in to your skin. What is interesting about this is that you can feel it make your eye area more and more moisturised. At first it will feel soft, but over time it feels more and more soft- the softest and smoothest the skin around my eyes has ever felt actually!

Additionally, it is absolutely amazing for removing eye make up: particularly mascara. I tried using it on a cotton pad but I didn't really get along with it and instead found I much preferred putting it on to my fingertip then massaging it in to my eyelashes and eyelid. It quickly takes all your mascara off of your eyelashes on to your under eye area so it is then easy to swipe away with a cotton pad. I usually struggle with removing mascara and always end up pulling out eye lashes. However, with this I could remove all of it at once, have no mascara left over and not have any eyelashes pulled out. They feel soft too. What a bonus!

Finally, I have also discovered that I really like to use it when my eyes are super tired. I've been trying this out during exams where I've been going to bed at 1 AM and waking up at 5:30 AM. This gel has been a life saviour for me by making my eyes feel more awake and refreshing them when all my eyes want to do is be closed and not studying! I also had a day when my eyes were swollen and puffy from having a bit of a cry from stress of exams. This gel was also lovely for cooling down the puffy-ness.

In conclusion, I am really fond of this eye gel. I've decided I like to use it in the morning before I apply make up, on my eyes when I am removing make up and at night time before I go to bed. I like how soft it makes my eyes and the cooling sensation it has so I will definitely continue to use it. Furthermore I also think it will be even greater when the weather starts to get a bit warmer because of how calming it is on your skin. The pump can be turned to lock and stop the gel coming out so I will probably take this on holiday with me when I go as well.
