Beauty Without Cruelty Nourishing Eye Gel Overview
You know what I always say about eye creams. If you’re going to use a particular product made specifically for the eye area, it should specifically and particularly address the issues unique to that area. Namely, puffiness and dark circles as well as fine lines and crow’s feet. So whenever I consider and/or review an eye cream, gel, or serum, I keep this in mind.
So when I first started looking into Beauty Without Cruelty Nourishing Eye Gel, I looked for talk of how it would handle all those pesky eye issues. The primary claims of Beauty Without Cruelty Nourishing Eye Gel are that it’s a light, oil-free gel moisturizer that hydrates and protects the eye area. That’s really it. Anecdotally, customers say the cool gel formula soothes and cools tired puffy eyes, but it’s not listed in the expected benefits, so we have to assume it is not a primary focus of the product. So right off the bat, I’m a little less inclined to find favor with Beauty Without Cruelty Nourishing Eye Gel. But always the optimist, we carry on.
So of course the next thing we do is look at the Beauty Without Cruelty Nourishing Eye Gel formula, because a great product is a great product, regardless of which skin they market it for. It’s fairly impressive with plenty of botanical antioxidants right at the top of the list. There’s Green and White Tea, Vitamin C, and organic Calendula. Then they added some Cucumber and Aloe for the soothing properties, Ginkgo Biloba as an anti-inflammatory, Hyaluronic Acid for moisture and to fill out lines and wrinkles, and Soy Protein to rebuild skin’s connective tissue structure.
The oil-free gel base is appealing to those who don’t want a heavy, greasy cream on their skin, especially those with oily skin. The instructions are to pat a few dots to the outer corners of the eyes and press them into your skin both morning and night.
