There is nothing more terrifying for someone with reactive skin than to read reviews about a burning sensation. I am extremely happy to report I had absolutely NO burning sensation whatsoever. I was so concerned I only applied to one eye just in case. It feels really great on and doesn’t feel tacky at all. I know some eye gels are tacky feeling but this is very nice and soft feeling to the touch. My dark circles seem to look lighter which is a plus since I always have dark undereyes.
To apply I disperse a drop onto my ring finger and gently dab onto the my undereye and upwards to get those fine lines aka crows feet wrinkles. I cringe every time I see people rubbing this in, the skin around our eyes is so delicate there is no need for anything other than dabbing or patting this in.
This has a ‘cucumber’ scent, its more like a cucumber floral scent. It lightens up and thankfully its for the eye area so I don’t smell it but if this scent was all over I’d have an issue with it.
