Algenist Firming Eye Gel .5oz
Mixed Bag on this one
I really like the Algenist line, but I have mixed emotions about this eye gel. It is easy to apply and has a nice consistency. I originally purchased because I noticed some crepey- ness in my eye lid and fine lines around my eyes that are there even when I'm not smiling. When I started using the gel I noticed within a week that my lid looked a bit lifted and less crepey, especially when using eye shadow. However, the lines haven't seemed to diminish at all. It's great that this is 360 degrees, and I will definitely finish my bottle on my eye lids, but I don't know if I will reorder, and I think will try the other eye balm from Algenist or another eye cream that focuses on lines and wrinkles.
Wasted my money
I used as directed, the entire bottle with no noticeable improvement. It's certainly a waste of money for me. However, the firming and lifting cream, although expensive, seems to produce the desired results on me.
So Far, So Good
I've been using the Firming Eye Gel for a couple weeks now and so far I am very happy with the product. It does firm the skin around my eye. i seem to have sagging skin above my eyes now that I am older and it is hard to find a product for this purpose. I ordered 2 other Algenist creams for my face which I liked, so when I saw the eye gel I decided to give it a try. I don't expect it to completely solve my sagging skin problem but this product does help. I will continue using it and ordering another bottle when this one is done. i want to give it a good amount of time to see how well it will continue to work. So far I am happy with the daily results.
awesome product. Really helps with thin skinned, crapey eyes, Ready to reorder now.
Did not work for me completely
I bought this as a lot of Algenist products i've used do what is claimed/stated..this eye gel worked very little on my lids, slight temporary lift for a few hrs..but, when i put it under my eye area-oh boy! Made under eye area extremely dried out and area looked aged-as in very lined,and it is not. I prefer the Algenist eye balm over this product, as it does smooth out and plumps fine lines and it too lifts the eye area and also brightens! This is going back!
I cannot say that I noticed any major difference. I think it is a good product but there are many products that do as well. Also the issue of getting the product out of the bottom of the jar. I used for two months, no problem, I am still paying the 3rd installment and I cannot get the last bit of the product out. I used a small amount twice a day, I think it should last at least three months. Don't believe I will purchase again.
Love Love Love
I saw a difference immediately! I have the saggy eye lid and could actually see the top of my eye lid after one use. I will take all the help can get and this is amazing! Also love the Concentrated Reconstructing Serum and Firm and Lifting Neck Cream. They all do what they say! Would love to see some serum specifically for around the lip area! Algenist seems to be my ticket to anti aging!! THANK YOU!!
Works for Me
I have only been using this for about two weeks, but I already see a difference in the firmness and smoothness under my eyes. I don't wear eye makeup so I haven't been using this product on my eyelids. I don't have any reaction like stinging or burning of the eyes. My only complaint is the price.
Worse Not Better
Have to agree with other reviewers, this product made my eye area look worse. It also irritated my eyes.
DIDN'T WORK FOR ME AT ALL!
I guess it is true by looking at all the reviews - it works for some and doesn't for others... I was one of them that it made my eyes look worse rather than better. I was really disappointed in this gel. Very small amount to begin with for a hefty price for it to make my eyes look worse. I found it to be really irritating on my eyes to even where it made my skin burn on my upper lids and under my eye as well. To the point that now it is uncomfortable and looks really wrinkled. UGH... Not sure how it works so good for others but glad it does... not me and it will be returned ASAP!! I will say that so far I LOVE the anti-aging moisturizing cream. It is amazing and really does the number but I do have to use other products with it to get the best benefit from it. I bought 2 extra large jars of it and will keep them and feel they are really working for me. It lasts and is a good value for the amount you get but this gel.... thumbs down.!!
Been using for a few months now, day and night religiously and have not seen any change in my under eye puffiness. This is rather expensive for it not to perform as it says. Get better results from Grass Roots eye cream I was using (from Kohl's)... the orange scented one. Nice moisturizer too.
I was skeptical of course. Im 47 yrrs old and have been having problems putting my eyeliner on because of the crepiness of my uppper lid. Couldnt get a straight line no matter what type of liner i tried. I figured i would try this and when it didnt work i could return it. I know it says that u will see results in 10 days but i didnt see much difference in that short amount of time. I kept it because i needed an eye moisturizer anyway. Well a month later i am a believer. The crepiness is so much improved i cant believe it. My makeup looks great and i have gotten so many compliments. Even without makeup there is a huge difference in the look and shape of my upper lid. I love this stuff so much i am going to order whatever products they offer for the rest of the face. You have to try this and give it about a month. You wont be dissappointed.
