Under eye cream – Aroma Magic Almond Under Eye Cream(Product review and swatches)

By Adivaah, 
Aroma Magic Almond Under Eye Cream– Since a long time I have been facing the problem of dark circles around the eyes, keeping potato or cucumber slices on the eyes helped a lot. But I’m a very lazy person so to avoid the task of taking out cucumber and  cutting it into slices and  placing them on the eyes, I decided I will try something easier and less time consuming than this, I searched different blogs and saw people praising Blossom Kocchar products. So I decided to buy my first ever under eye cream and bought the Aroma Magic Almond Under Eye Cream because of the fact that almond oil can diminish dark circles under the eyes.

 but I’m completely disappointed after using this cream. In fact I understood that a product works differently for different skin types and also realised that laziness can lead to a lot of damage! Trust me when I say this!

What does Aroma Magic Under Eye cream claims: Vit A, B and C give excellent tone and suppleness and minimize wrinkles and rings around eyes.

Active Ingredients: Extracts of Lemon Peel, Almond, Bach, Grape Seed, Apricot and pure essential oils of Carrot, Palmarosa, Fennel and rose.
Lemon peel also acts as a skin lightener, which is perfect for those who tan a lot or have naturally uneven tones

Almond oil can diminish dark circles.

Bach is useful for scars and  marks.
Grape seed oil is a preferred cosmetic ingredient for control of skin moisturization.
Apricot oil is high in Vitamin E; it is used for skin massage. It has skin softening properties and when massaged the oil gets absorbed completely, without leaving any trace of its oily nature on the skin.
Carrot seed oil is one of the main ingredients used in tanning lotions as it enhances the skins ability to tan.
Palmarosa is helpful for dry, undernourished skin conditions. Palmarosa is cooling and anti-inflammatory making it applicable for wrinkles, dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis.
Fennel essential oil is used for its soothing, cleansing and toning effects on the skin, while at the same time improving circulation and fighting water retention and puffiness.
Directions to use Blossom Kochhar’s Almond Under Eye Cream: Gently pat the cream around the eyes with finger tips and wipe off with damp cotton after 20 minutes.

Price of Aroma Magic Almond under eye cream is Rs.90 INR for 20gms

My Experience with the Under Eye cream: This is a white colored cream which comes in a small tube & is thick in texture. As soon as I applied it the rich scent made me feel nauseating .The first time I used it I used a generous amount which made my eyes sting. It spreads easily so you just need one drop for each. If the skin around the eyes is dry or broken this will result in inflammation. I have used this cream for about ten times,I did not see any change in the dark circle but after sometime I noticed MILIA near the eyes.
MILIA or a Milium (plural milia), also called a milk spot or an oil seed is a keratin-filled cyst that can appear just under the epidermis. This is how it looks! This image is from google.
The MILIA looks so bad that I regret buying this cream.I generally have a feeling that products that are heavily scented don’t deliver good results. 
This is not suitable for people with sensitive skin because of the presence of heavily scented oils.
This did not deliver the results it claimed. It did not provide any suppleness to skin around the eyes nor did it minimize the rings around the eyes. 
I’m so appalled right now because I don’t know any way I could get rid of them, I’ll have to visit the Dermatologist I guess.
I will not recommend this to anyone because I’m not sure if this will work for anybody!

Do you have any other under eye cream to recommend?


  1. Hey Anamika,

    Its terrible to hear about your experience. I do hope your skin gets ok soon.

    After many experiments I have now found my ideal under eye cream. It is by clinique and is called "all about eyes". It is an odourless and almost colorless lightweight cream that you can dab under your eyes morning and evening and blend in with your fourth finger (this finger is the weakest and exerts least pressure to the sensitive area under the eyes).

    Its a tad costly but worth every penny and available at all clinique outlets in shoppers stops etc (the one in Hyderabad is in GVK One).

    Hope you like it

  2. Rupa!, This was my bad experience not Anamika! Thanks for your concern! I’m glad clinique eye cream worked for you! I’m still skecptical about buying an eye cream at the moment!

  4. Oops. Hope your skin gets better soon Adivaah.

    Yup, give it some rest for a while and then try some homemade under eye creams maybe, like vitamin e capsules/oliveoil/aloe vera gel etc.
