Skincare Review: Ole Henriksen Eye Gel

IMG_1615

The Packaging is actually a sample sized pot with a screw off black cap. I only have 0.5 fl oz.  The price is $42.00 for 1 fl oz. The formula is a cooling gel.

My thoughts on the product are mixed. It’s called “Ultimate Lift” yet I don’t need any lifting or firming as of yet, so I can’t speak of that. I do believe its claims to soothe and de-puff are right on. I notice a big difference in the size of my eye bags; I was born with them. The moment you apply the eye gel to your under eye area, the cooling sensation really helps to de-puff the area. The texture is a sticky gel. I feel that it does not fully absorb into the skin because the stickiness wears off but is still there throughout the day (unless you put makeup on right after.) I do not think it is as moisturizing as I would like for it to be. So this is not for those of you with dry under eye areas.

Purchase? At this moment, no, I would not consider purchasing it because what the product aims to do (“ultimate lift”) isn’t for me at this moment. I think it’s a good eye gel, but not my favorite, especially because it isn’t as moisturizing as previous eye creams I have used.

  1. Nce review! I have never used an an eye cream/gel as I don’t feel I have particularly puffy or dark eye bags. I just use my regular moisturizer. But I keep this stuff in mind…just in case!

  2. Eh, I’m not a fan of most gel type consistency face products because they’re always sticky. My current favourite eye cream is the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye Cream – contrary to its name, I use it for daytime since it’s lightweight and perfect under concealer.

  3. I don’t have a favorite eye cream, yet. I’m thinking about ordering LUSH’s Enchanted Eye Cream because I used to really like it, but haven’t used it in so long and not for a long enough period of time to tell if it really helps or not.

  4. Great review – I got a sample of this from Sephora a while back and thought it was sticky, too! Currently I’m using the tone up total eye fitness by Pur Minerals and love it!

  6. I haven’t tried this eye gel, but I’m happy with all the skincare I’ve used from Ole Henriksen…a gel with lifting properties should provide at least the same water and hydration of other eye creams…by the way, if you want a good eye cream, try Shiseido, they’re really nice and make a difference. 😉
