Himalaya Under Eye Cream & Lotus Herbals Under Eye Gel ~ Early Thoughts

Himalaya Under Eye Cream

Description:
Contains proven and safe blend of herbs specially created to care for the delicate area around your eyes.
Cipadessa Baccifera ~ Moisturizes the skin under eyes
Bergenia Ligulata ~  Lightens the skin under eyes
Triticum Vulgare ~ Nourishes the skin under eyes

Suitable for contact lenses wearers
Dermatologically and Ophthalmologically tested.

Visible Results (According to Himalaya):
80% reduction in dark circles in just 4 weeks
28% reduction in under-eye wrinkles and fine lines in just 4 weeks
Brighter and smoother eye contour

My early thoughts:
It's been more than 2 weeks since I started using Himalaya Under-eye cream. It is indeed very moisturizing and relaxes my eyes. I really like the consistency of the cream- neither too heavy nor too light. Not really seen much of a difference in my fine lines or color of my under-eye areas so far, but somehow the light beige color gives me hope. It does feel very gentle on my eyes and does NOT sting. It is fragrance-free too, so definitely a plus for an eye cream.
Price ~ Rs.150. Lob it! 5 stars just for that.


Lotus NutraEye Rejuvenating & Correcting Eye Gel

Contains:
Hydrolised wheat protein ~ Diminishes under-eye lines and crow's feet
Soy Bio Peptides ~ Diminishes undereye dark circles
Rice Bran extract and Vitamin A&E ~ Rejuvenates and hydrates skin around eyes.

My early thoughts:
I was very excited to get this particular eye gel because of the ingredients that looked so promising, particularly the Rice Bran extract. Been using it for a little more than a week. So far, so not good! Because of the gel texture, this product makes my under-eye areas feel very taut, like when you apply egg white on your face. This texture just does not work for me. I can't go to bed or prep my eyes before applying make-up with taut under-eyes. I need something that fills up fine lines and makes my eyes soft and moisturized. But I'll still continue to use it. Maybe.....
Oh, and yes it is fragrance-free too.

Price ~ Rs.325. Bah! Maybe half of that is just for the packaging, which I have to admit is quite fancy. The white box which holds the tube has gold glitters on it =)

So, in conclusion, I am liking the Himalaya under-eye cream more right now.
I will give them a month or two to really impress me. Let's see how they fair then. 
Later, I'll be comparing and reviewing all the eye creams (mostly Indian brands) I've used altogether.

  22. we have himalaya products in our country but i do not think there is something for the eyes. all ive been seeing are stuff for the face, cleansers and masks... i will check the market next time.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hey, loved the face-off! Will def try Himalaya once done with aromamagic - it is certainly cheaper. :)

  24. it didnt work for me, infact i am using from some 4 months. nothing has happened except one thing that now i can see some fine lines under my eyes.
    now i dont know whether that is ageing or this eye cream:(

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh too bad! I finishes mine and I won't say it's that bad, but sure doesn't work wonders. U should switch eye creams then

    does this cream effect on dark circles due to heridetery?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I doubt it Nisha. You'll need something stronger and specially made for that

  28. I really love it... We can see the result in first use itself. Trust my words, it reduced my darkness in huge amount in first use itself. I feel bad of knowing this product lately.

    ReplyDelete
  29. So, in retrospect, which one worked better for you?

    ReplyDelete
  30. The price factor does have a huge weight on the decision making factor.Himalaya products are usually very good....so I can taut the review.The taut feeling also does not work with me.

  31. Himalaya under eye cream is not working at all. I am using it more than 3 weeks and on every Monday i am taking my snap but bad luck its not working at all :(

    ReplyDelete
  32. A: Himalaya Products are not as herbal as they claim to be.

    B: In countries like India and Nepal doesn't have any strict regulations and many of these companies get away because of this.

    C: I have used several Himalaya products and I find them too ordinary. They do nothing to your skin, hair, under eye. I have even tried their herbal teas and I found them fake.

    D: If you spend a few bucks more you will find better herbal products. DO not waste your money on Himalaya Products. They are not worth it.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
