Ingredients of Boutique Bio Almond Soothing and Nourishing Eye Cream
Nutmeg is known to have medicinal and therapeutic properties. It helps in treating the burning sensation of the eyes. Having antibacterial properties it helps in treating infections and also reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
Almond oil is a very potent ingredient in treating dry and puffy eyes. It contains retinol and essential vitamins that keep the under-eye area smooth.
Sunflower oil helps in banishing dark circles if applied regularly because of the high content of vitamin E present in it.
Bihidana is rich in antioxidants which helps in eliminating free radical damage caused by oxidative stress. It helps in treating fine lines around the eyes and reduces the appearance of dark circles.
Sikta tail is a combination of beeswax and sesame oil. It is known to effectively heal wounds and treat dryness of eyes.
It comes in a sturdy white plastic tub with a dark green coloured screw-capped lid. This kind of packaging is a turndown for me because of hygiene factors. Make sure to wash your hands before applying this eye cream. This plastic tub is kept inside a small card box containing the product description, price, expiry date and net quantity.
Rs 199 for 15 gm
It has a cream-like consistency which is moderately thick. It is neither too greasy or runny.
It has a herbal or rather an ayurvedic kind of smell which is not very overpowering. This cream somewhere has a smell of camphor in it though the ingredients don’t specify the use of this ingredient.
How to use
Lightly pat around the eye area, morning and evening.
Review of Biotique Bio Almond Soothing and Nourishing Eye Cream
So, its winter season already and it always wreaks havoc on me in some or the other way. My under-eye area tends to become extremely dry and stretchy because of which my eyes look extremely tiny. Most importantly its a very irritating condition as you feel like constantly rubbing your eyes. I tried various home remedies to treat the dryness around my eyes but nothing seemed to work. I started looking for a budget-friendly under eye creams on the Internet and that’s when I came to know about this eye cream. So, this is the first time I had purchased an eye cream.
Heading over to the review, I usually apply this eye cream before going to bed. Be sure to take a very small amount otherwise you’ll end up with a lot of cream onto your finger which will ultimately make it impossible to blend it. This cream intensely hydrates my dry eyes within 2 uses itself. The reason why I apply it at night is that it gives an oily finish under the eyes.
What I didn’t like about this eye cream is that it stings very badly and my eyes become watery. Talking about the product description which claims that it lightens and brightens the under-eye area is not true. I didn’t see even a slight change in my dark circles and neither does it reduce puffiness of the eyes. If you are just looking for hydrating your dry eye area then you can give this cream a try. Secondly, it’s a decent eye cream which I would only use during winters because of its consistency(thick) and opt for a gel-based under eye cream during summers which can absorb easily.
- 100% organically-pure and preservative-free
- Helps in the effectively hydrating under-eye area
- Just a small amount required which makes this eye cream last for a good amount of time
- The packaging is not very hygienic
- Doesn’t reduce dark circles and puffiness
- Cant apply during the day and in summers because its consistency is very thick
- It stings very badly if this cream goes into the eyes
Try using these home remedies to reduce under-eye dark circles.
