I’m often on the hunt for eye treatment products that will help slow down the hands of time. I probably use eye treatment products in a different way from most women. In addition to using it under my eyes to lighten dark circles and firm skin and at the corners to minimize the appearance of crow’s feet, I use it on the loose skin above my crease to firm up that area and to hydrate the dry skin on my lids and crease due to dry eye. I know, I know, that’s a lot to ask of an eye treatment product!
I thought I found my HG eye treatment from PCA Skin, but at $84, wow, it is so expensive! Yet I shelled out the money for it several times because I couldn’t find anything else that worked as well. Till now!
Enter Incredible By Nature Eye Gel.
Incredible By Nature Eye Gel a multi-tasking eye treatment product that helps to:
- lighten dark spots
- reduce puffiness
- reduce wrinkles
- firm skin.
I think “eye gel” is somewhat of a misnomer. For me, Incredible By Nature Eye Gel has a rather unique form: IMHO it’s a liqui-gel. I think of it and use it for my specific needs like an eye serum.
Like most women, I apply it under my eyes to help diminish dark circles and prevent bags. Every time I use Incredible By Nature Eye Gel, I think about my favorite esthetician who told me a few years ago that to prevent blackheads, whiteheads and milia from forming under and near the corners of my eyes, I should use an eye gel. Incredible By Nature fits the bill to a T! With this lightweight, unscented liqui-gel, I am doing my best to prevent clogged pores that can turn into blackheads and milia. Yay!
Applying it to the skin at and above my crease is not something that the brand says to do, but for me, that’s where the rubber meets the road, so to speak. If it helps there, I’m sold. And this baby does! Incredible By Nature Eye Gel, perhaps due to its liqui-gel form and perhaps due to its ingredients, goes on “wet-ish” and quickly dries down with a sort of tightness that helps firm the area. It works as well for me as the $84 clear gel I was paying a fortune for! Woo hoo! Although the tightness is temporary (till I remove it), I’ll take it.
Here’s the way I use the product for my unique needs. I pat Incredible By Nature under my eyes, on the crow’s feet, and on my crease and skin above the crease to firm the area. Because my mature skin is so very dry, I think of Incredibly By Nature Eye Gel as a first step serum for certain areas, i.e. in and above my crease. Then I pat an eye cream on top of it in my crease and on my eyelids that are dry and often scaly due to blepharitis to give me added moisture that those super-dry areas need. I know most women have oily eyelids, and they usually don’t moisturize their eyelids! So for the vast majority of women, Incredible by Nature Eye Gel applied under the eye and at the crow’s feet on its own is all they need.
Plus there are other benefits to Incredible By Nature Eye Gel. Importantly, it is made with natural and organic ingredients. That’s very impressive. I’ve been trying to incorporate more natural and organic products into my skincare routine where possible. The fact that this eye treatment is made with great stuff is an unexpected surprise! I checked out the ingredient list, and it’s filled with goodies including natural extracts and oils. The ingredient list starts out with:
- retinyl palmitate: an effective skin-restoring antioxidant
- retinol: wrinkle reducer
- honey: anti-bacterial, antioxidant, moisturizing, imparts a glow
- hyaluronic acid: to attract moisture.
And those are just the first four ingredients. Here’s the complete list:
Incredible By Nature Eye Gel comes in an opaque pump stock bottle to protect the efficacy of the ingredients.
In all honesty, I don’t love this particular pump bottle because the pump doesn’t operate quite as smoothly as I might wish. However, the fact that it’s a stock bottle helps keep the cost affordable so the trade-off is worth it for me. To use it effectively, I cup my hand and pump into my hand, and then I dip into it with a finger from my other hand and apply it.
It pumps out enough liqui-gel for my entire eye area. Sometimes if I get a little more of the eye gel pumped out than I need for my eyes, I apply it to my dark spots or wrinkles on my face since it has retinol and retinyl palmitate that I know can help more than my eye area!
Here’s some more info about the product from the manufacturer: “Clinically tested, Dermatologist approved & specifically made to work naturally with your body. It is the only non-irritating, allergy tested, & CHIRALLY CORRECT product available that’s made with all natural & certified organic ingredients & manufactured at an FDA approved U.S. GMP facility (Good Manufacturing Practices).”
Did you notice the all caps term “chirally correct”? I had never heard that term before and I didn’t know what it meant. I looked it up on online, and there are lots of sites that define and discuss it. I learned that molecules have two sides that appear to be the same but actually have different benefits. One side is more efficacious than the other because it is more readily absorbed by the skin. Who knew? The manufacturer removes the side of the molecule that doesn’t combine as well with the skin, leaving the effective side.
Incredible By Nature is a cruelty-free brand, and it makes other products for skin and hair including liquid black soap, goat’s milk soap and African Shea Butter. Their products come with a 30 day hassle-free guarantee. Made in the U.S.
Incredible By Nature Eye Gel contains 2 fl. oz. Affordably priced at $19.99. It’s suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.
So no more $84 eye gel for me! I’ve found an affordable, efficacious replacement! Check out Incredible By Nature on their website for more information on the Eye Gel as well as their other products. Head over here to purchase. It’s also on Amazon.
