Many of us struggle with the problem of dark circles and we all know how stubborn they can be. I don’t really try many under-eye products, but some time back, I came across the Khadi Mauri Under Eye Gel and instantly bought it. Somehow its ingredient list spoke to me, so I thought of giving it a try. I have been using this regularly for a few months now and wanted to share my experience with you all. So let’s get started and see if this one actually worked for me. Keep reading…
What The Brand Claims: Khadi Mauri Under Eye Gel combines the beneficial properties of herbals which are well known for their skin whitening (Cucumber and Brahmi) and skin rejuvenating properties (Wheat Germ Oil and Bassant). This under eye gel works by activating the skin metabolism, reducing skin keratinization, moisturizing, softening, alleviating wrinkles and enhancing the skin’s complexion around eyes, thus keeping your eye contours free from under eye dark circles and premature wrinkles.
Packaging: This gel comes in a see-through plastic bottle that is sturdy as well as travel friendly. It has a black flip-top cap that shuts tightly with a click. As you unscrew it, you will find a plastic stopper, that needs to be removed in order to use the product. All the necessary information such as ingredient list, date of manufacturing, shelf-life, price, net volume as well as directions to use are clearly laid out. Overall, I really like the packaging! It is beautiful, hygienic as well as easy to carry around.
My Experience With The Product: As the name suggests, Khadi Mauri Under Eye Gel has a very smooth gel consistency. Even though it appears to have a bluish tinge in the bottle, it is actually colorless. It beautifully spreads on the skin and blends in quickly. I always massage the under-eye area for a few seconds, which also helps in improving the blood circulation. This gel keeps the under-eye area smooth, hydrated and also reduces puffiness. It completely gets absorbed into the skin and does not leave behind any residue or greasy feeling, which is great! As soon as you apply the gel, the under-eye area feels healthy and moisturized and it also provides a soothing effect.
Now coming to its effectiveness, I would say that this is a good under-eye gel that reduces dark circles and fine lines to some extent. However, one needs to use this regularly and that too for a considerable period of time in order to notice some visible results. Also, this gel will not be much effective if you have extreme dark circles. In addition, I would also like to mention that this alone would not help you get rid of the under-eye circles. Healthy lifestyle changes such as a good night’s sleep and a healthy diet also need to be incorporated.
Another reason why I love this product so much is because just a teeny-tiny amount is needed for each use. Even if you use it on a daily basis, the product goes a long, long way. Speaking of the fragrance, it has a mild scent that disappears as soon as you apply the product. Since this is a leave-on gel, you can step out of the house after applying it and can also leave it on overnight before going to sleep. The product can be easily found online and comes at an affordable price point.
A Word Of Caution: Since the under-eye area is sensitive and each skin type responds differently to different products, it is advisable to do a patch test first in order to see if the gel suits your skin.
