Product Review: Beauté Pacifique Puffy Eyes Gel

I have never been 100% keen on posting eye cream reviews as I am still on the fence about eye creams in general. Personally I have never seen any long term effects or benefits from the various eye creams that I have used over the years. Having said that, I will continue to use them for hydration benefits and also in the daft hope that one day when I am in my 50’s I will look back and be thankful that I did use them when I am wrinkle free and fabulous. The Beauté Pacifique Puffy Eyes Gel was pitched as a saviour product to aid in the aftermath of the festive season, an eye gel to help combat tired and puffy eyes. (something that I suffer from on a daily basis, not just in the festive season!) This definitely sounded like a product I needed in my beauty regime. The Puffy Eyes Gel claims to tighten and firm the eye area instantly. And, in all honesty – it sort of does. You can pretty much feel the product working the instant you put it on your skin. The eye area tightens up and feels “refreshed”. Now this, for me, is where the problem has set in. I have been using this eye cream for a few weeks now, and I’ll be honest with you guys – I have a love/hate relationship with it. There is one aspect in particular about the product that I’m not sure if I like. Basically after application there is a cooling sensation that feels similar to cold air blowing on the skin surrounding my eyes. This quickly turns into a warming sensation followed by a slight tingling feeling in the skin. I am putting this all down to the product working it’s magic, but if it could do so with minimal sensation I would definitely prefer it. If you’re looking for a quick caffeine shot to the eye area, this is the product for you. Be warned though, you are only supposed to use a tiny amount of product – around the size of half a grain of rice per eye. The Beauté Pacifique Puffy Eyes Gel retails for $75.55 AUD for 15mL and is available at selected stockists and online. For more information visit Beauté Pacifique online. (note: I was sent this product for consideration for review.)

    That “tingling” sensation sounds like it would make my eyes water.

  4. I have always had puffy eyes and in recent years, I’ve noticed the darkness under them is getting harder and harder to fight with drugstore brand eye creams. My paternal grandmother had such severe black circles all around her eyes– I knew I was dealing with an inherited demon. I asked my dermatologist if there was ANYTHING on the market that would lighten my circles and she suggested the Olive Night Creme from Made from Earth Skin Care. After using up my first jar, I am coming back for more! This cream really does lighten the un-lightenable. It helps with the puffiness, too, but not as significantly as the dark circles. I almost look like a normal person instead of something from the raccoon family.

  5. I’ve read great reviews of this product but am having difficulty finding a place to purchase it online. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you.
