About the products – VYA Naturals Caffeine Eye Cream
Vya Naturals Caffeine Eye Cream reduces puffiness, dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles in the delicate skin around the eye area.
It is formulated with caffeine-rich green tea and green coffee extracts that de-puff and reduces swelling while increasing circulation to alleviate and lighten dark circles.
Other key ingredients include oils of rosemary, avocado, and rosehip which help in moisturizing the under eye area and delaying the formation of fine lines.
To apply, take a small amount using your ring finger and apply under the eye area by gently patting from inside to outside.
My experience with VYA Naturals Caffeine Eye Cream
VYA Naturals Caffeine Eye Cream comes in a blue-tinted glass bottle with a pump dispenser. I find the pump quite handy as it is hygienic and you get the right amount product in a single pump. The cream as such is white in colour and void of any distinguishable fragrance. What drew me the product was that is filled with the goodness of green coffee extracts which is loaded with antioxidants. Coffee or caffeine also helps brighten eyes and reduce puffiness. It also has rosehip oil and avocado oil, which help in reducing fine lines.
The eye cream is very lightweight and it gets absorbed very easily into the skin. It has nice relaxing sensation, however, with summer being in full swing I do wish it had a nice cooling sensation just to beat the heat. It sinks into the skin easily and has decent hydration. I say decent hydration as my under eyes are insanely dry and I need something potent to make them feel supple. However, I find that this works well on my dry eyes for daytime use, as I wouldn’t want anything greasy or slippery when I am out and about. It works well underneath makeup and it hasn’t caused my concealer to crease or cake up. On days when I have slept less, my eyes tend to look puffy. I’ve used this eye cream along with a cool jade roller and it definitely helps reduce the puffiness. Anyone who has seen me know that I have panda eyes – lack of sleep, migraines, and everything in between has left me with insanely deep dark circles. They are quite dark that I need to use a corrector before I use a concealer. But since I started using this eye cream my under looks brighter and I get a feeling that with consistent use and better sleep my dark circles will slowly reduce. The only cons I see with this product is that some may find the price high, but you use very little product and one tiny bottle will definitely last you months. Sometimes product tends to clump up at the opening of the pump leading to a bit of wastage as well. Otherwise, I am quite liking this eye cream and will continue to use it.
