I recently realized I should start using some kind of eye cream and since I love the Yes To Cucumbers makeup removal wipes, I thought this might be a good product to try. It's definitely soothing, as the packaging promises. But I've found that it's very easy to pump out just a little bit too much. And if you apply just a little bit too much then it tends to not absorb into the skin properly and make the under-eye area sort of sticky.
Definitely wouldn't recommend wearing this under makeup. I haven't tried it with a full face of makeup, but even just wearing mascara with the gel made the mascara transfer a bit, leaving me with dark circles under my eyes.
As for the brightening circles and strengthening eye skin bit, I've been using it for a bit now, and I don't see any difference in my dark circles. My under-eye skin is less dried out and sensitive now, so that's a plus. But I probably wouldn't buy this again because I'm not pleased with the way the gel turned out for me.
