Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel Review

Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel Overview

Lots of us need something cool and soothing to relieve tired puffy eyes.  Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel wants to be that product for you.  It’s marketed as a cool and soothing gel that reduces puffiness while hydrating and firming delicate skin and increasing elasticity.

Once you look at the reviews and what people are saying about Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel, you start to realize that it really is pretty much just about the soothing and cooling.  It doesn’t seem to do much for lines, wrinkles, or the appearance of aging.  It just cools and de-puffs tired morning eyes.  Now that’s not necessarily a bad thing.  If that’s what you’re looking for, then this could be just what you want, but if you’re interested more in an all-around product, you may need to keep looking.

Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel ReviewMary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel Ingredients and How They Work

While reviews are important and a great way to get a feel for how people use a product and how well they like it, reviews aren’t everything.  You also need to know what’s in the product to understand just how effective it may be for your needs.  When we looked at the ingredients list, we were actually pleasantly surprised at what’s there:

  • Cucumber Extract will definitely cool and soothe a tired and puffy eye area.
  • A few other soothing botanicals are added, and they also offer antioxidant protection as well. These include Dog Rose Hips and Euphrasia Extract.
  • Witch Hazel is added for its tightening effect, but unfortunately, this could prove more irritating than anything else.
  • Sodium Hyaluronate binds to water molecules to provide hydration while it plumps out lines and wrinkles.

The fact that Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel is a gel helps make it cooling, soothing, and refreshing, especially if you keep it in the fridge like some people do.  You can apply it morning and or night, though most customers seem to have found that it’s best for a morning pick me up.  Just be sure to let it dry before applying make up or you could get some product peeling.

Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel Pros and Cons

Advantages of Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel

  • It’s very affordable.
  • It feels good going on.
  • A little goes a long way.

Disadvantages of Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel

  • Plenty of Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel reviews indicate that it can be irritating to skin and eyes.  My guess is it’s the Witch Hazel.
  • It isn’t particularly hydrating.

Where to Buy

You can purchase Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel through a Mary Kay representative or online.  One advantage, of course, of using a rep is that you will probably get to try before you buy.  But if want to just take the plunge, you can find it at the Mary Kay website or Amazon.  The ½ ounce jar retails for $15.


Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel probably won’t be your go to anti-aging eye cream.  But it’s priced reasonably enough and it lasts long enough that you might choose to pop a jar in the freezer so you have something for those mornings when you just can’t get the sleep out of your eyes.  If having an eye gel on hand for that reason appeals to you, Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel is a great option.

Q: How often should I use the soothing eye gel? -Paula

A: Hi Paula, any eye product you'll want to use twice a day as part of your skin care regimen. Consider Beauty Counter's Rejuvenating Eye Cream, it's got better anti aging ingredients than the Mary Kay and is very effective and soothing. I've been using it six weeks and I'm seeing results! ~ Rachel

    Indulge Soothing Eye Gel isn’t meant to be anti-ageing, Mary Kay have various other products that do that, this is an eye gel (not even a cream) that is made to combat puffy and tired eyes. Nothing more. Doesn’t claim to do more either, so don’t understand why it’s reviewed as if it’s meant to be an anti-ageing eye cream.
    The key ingredients are Green Tea, Cucumber and Dog Rose Fruit Extracts. Not sure where the Witch Hazel comes in, but if it was an old formula, maybe review the review as it’s not valid or accurate.

      Nic, yes you listed the “key” ingredients correctly (Green Tea, Cucumber, and Dog Rose Fruit Extracts), here’s a complete list:

      Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Glyceryl Polymethacrylate, Camellia Sinensis Extract, Cucumber Extract, Witch Hazel Extract, Matricaria Extract, Comfrey Extract, Dog Rose Hips Extract, Euphrasia Officinalis Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Triethanolamine, Carbomer, Methylparaben, Benzophenone-4, DMDM Hydantoin, Propylene Glycol, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Propylparaben, Blue 1

      Rating on Paula’s Choice: ONE STAR, and their reasons below:

      Indulge Soothing Eye Gel contains a frustrating mix of helpful and skin-hindering ingredients, with the negatives (comfrey, witch hazel, and eyebright) outweighing the positives and making this more a problem than an indulgence for skin.

      Jar Packaging:Yes
      Tested on animals:Yes

      I’m not a fan of companies who test on animals, nor am I a fan of parabens and I think my review made it clear that this product was for cooling and depuffing and cited the anti-aging benefits (or lack thereof) simply as a comparison. Not sure if you’re a Mary Kay rep, and to be honest I have not personally tried this product but I’m confident that my review is accurate as an informational review. Thanks, Rachel
