Biotique Almond Under Eye Cream Review

Hello ladies,

Spending too much time in front of the Computer gives us dark circles. I have been spending at least 10 hours a day in front of the screen (now now, don’t think that it all goes in internet. My all work is through computer. Sigh….). So after 100s of failed attempt to use cucumber slices and tea bags regularly, I decided to go for Biotique under eye almond cream. I have quite sensitive eyes so an herbal product like Biotique sounded good to me . I had heard great things about almond oil for dark circles too and as almond was the main ingredient present in it I didn’t give much of a thought.

  • What the product claims: – A light nourishing cream to help protect the delicate skin around the eyes. Contains oils of Nutmeg, Almond, Sunflower and Quince Seed Gel that increase brightness and add sparkle to the eye, while reducing puffiness, dark circle and fine lines around the eye area.

  • Ingredients: As per Wikipedia, The quince or Cydonia oblonga is a small deciduous tree related to apples and pears. As per Biotique, the gel from the quince seed provides essential vitamins and minerals to nourish the skin.Nutmeg: Jaiphal in Hindi. Anti-inflammatory properties. Lightens dark circles

My experience with Biotique Under Eye Cream:

The first time I used it at night, my eyes started feeling so heavy due to the strong smell. I thought maybe it’s the first time that’s why, so I straight away went to sleep. In the morning my eyes felt puffy. Brave me; I applied it in the morning after bathing. And alas….. I had to take a leave from the office as I couldn’t see properly, my eyes were stinging bad, feeling puffy. Still I continued to apply a little amount at night (didn’t wish to waste my leave so not in the morning). But the irritation was the same. So stopped using it. And have been trying to finish it off using it as hand and foot cream at times (almond oil will do some good to my skin ….). But I want to give it a benefit of doubt as I have very sensitive eyes and only Himalaya kajal suits me. So might be it could suit some people. But try at your own risk.  Now to be rational to this product, here are some pros:

It is a thick cream which has a very shiny finish

What I liked about the Biotique Under Eye Cream

  • The tub is very small and handy.
  • It does provide moisturisation
  • Little amount goes a long way.
  • The price is reasonable.
  • It has good ingredients like almond oil and nutmeg.
  • It’s a biotique product so we can trust it.

What I didn’t like about Biotique Under eye cream

  • No complete list of ingredients
  • The smell was very irritating to eyes. I want my eye cream to be odorless so that it doesn’t cause irritation.
  • It’s very oily, as you can see in the picture. One cannot use it in the morning at all.
  • Its quite thick, so I had to pat, pat, pat , pat and pat to make it melt in my skin.
  • It feels so heavy on the eyes.
  • Digging finger in the deep tub is very unhygienic.

My verdict: I love my eyes and this product was sheer torture for them. So I am never ever going to buy it. Though I am giving it benefit of doubt due to sensitivity of my eyes (I know I am bragging but it has been pure torture. I hope you all can understand). My brother smelled it and made such a horrible face…. I  won’t suggest anybody to get this cream.

To end this sad post happily, I have got garnier under eye pen few days back and I am quite happy with it. Let’s see how it affects my dark circles. See you. Have fun

  1. I’ve LITERALLY never used an eye cream before. Even I got the Garnier Light Roll on like 2 months ago & I’ve to say it works! It’s odorless, lightweight & everything else you’re looking for.
    But (and there’s always a but) the effect lasts for only 2 to 3 hours max. So, if you’re out all day & don’t want your dark circles to show, you’ve to keep re- applying.
    You’ll get rid of dark circles & puffiness, but you’ll also have to carry it everywhere.
    Hope I helped. 😀

  2. i m using himalaya under eye cream n i thing its pretty much doing the job..cant swear by it as i fail in all my attempts to be regular with it 😉

  3. i’m very scared of oily creams 🙁 specially for delicate eye area i think potato juice and cucumber is best!!

  4. I’d recommend using the Aroma Magic Eye Gel.It has an amazing formulation and though t won’t cure your dark circles overnight it does help in the long run.Use grated potato pack on your eyes for relief from puffy eyes.It will also help with the dark circles.
