I must admit I’m a lazy sort of person. I’m even too lazy to use an eye cream most of the time. In fact, a while ago, I actually pondered upon whether one really needs an eye cream. At that time, and until recently, I wasn’t using any specific cream for the eye area. I just never felt the need to.
However, due to some bad nights I noticed that my eye area was slightly puffy and had dark circles which made me look like a close cousin of a panda. So, I picked up the Mukti Organics Rosehip eye gel to try, pretty much on a whim.
What I found was that the Mukti eye gel was working well for me. The texture of the eye gel is light and it absorbs quickly. You only need very very little and so a bottle goes a long long way. I would however hesitate to call it a “gel” because it looks and feels like a light cream.
As Mukti Organics prides themselves on being fully certified organic, their product comes in an air-tight pump bottle. Good and bad. Good because it keeps the product untainted by air; bad because you can’t tell how much product is left in the bottle. Also, the nozzle sometimes gets a little stuck when an air bubble hits, but Mukti has anticipated that so there are instructions in the box telling you what to do when you encounter this. I just keep pumping till something gives 😛 Sometimes also, the nozzle is blocked by the dried residue of the gel. It bothers me because I’m wondering just how much gel I will waste in time!
According to the Mukti site, the “Vitamins and gel based formula will assist to sooth puffy, tired eyes. Firms and tones the skin around the delicate eye area.” and after 1 month, it was time to check the results.
