I was never an eye cream or concealer person & my regular moisturisers /creams served the purpose for me. Of late I felt my under eye skin getting tad bit drier with the climate change which my moisturiser failed to deal with. So I decided to plunge into these eye creams & got this Iraya Lotus one which is specifically recommended for dry skin with a gentle nature touch.
The packaging of the cream is minimalistic & simple. It comes in a heavy bottomed glass tub with silver screw top cap. The fragrance of the cream is something weird & medicated but nothing strong. You need to sniff forcibly to detect the smell which otherwise is very supressed. It’s a pale milky brown light textured extremely moisturising non sticky cream. It does have this slight slip in the texture which makes the application quiet easy & less stressful on the delicate area. One need a very tiny amount to pat delicately in the under eye area with your ring finger. The cream doesn’t get soaked up completely but leaves a thin oily/shiny layer which takes time to get absorbed (rather say works all night). There’s no greasy or sticky feel what so ever. You get a 20 gm product in tub which lasts for looooong as one needs very tiny amount per use.
As I said, the cream is extremely moisturising & made my sagged under eye area softer & nourished. It feels much much better now & all my products concealers/ foundations applies smoothly. Initially I used to pat a tiny amount of this cream before applying any cream product due to the patchiness/ dryness around the eye & now after the regular 3 weeks use my under eye area rocks. It’s smooth, supple & radiant. I love to apply this cream generously at nights to get up with bright & fresh looking eyes. It provides ample hydration with extreme care to the delicate under eye area & brightens it. I was using concealer very regularly unlike before where I never needed it. But after using this cream my under eye looks just perfect & I don’t need a concealer on a daily basis. I cannot comment anything related to dark circles as I don’t have any but this is more of a moisturising product & does the job perfectly. A lesson well learnt- Never ignore eye care. Every product is designed for specific needs. Regular moisturisers are not enough for more fragile under eye area & definitely needs some extra nourishment. Choose a night cream keeping in mind your skin type & concerns.
I would highly recommend this product to females suffering precisely from under eye dryness.
- Simple & minimalistic packaging.
- The fragrance is not bothersome & quiet suppressed.
- The cream is light textures, highly moisturising & non sticky.
- It doesn’t leave any greasy/ sticky feel post application.
- Keeps under eye super soft & radiant.
- Provides high moisturisation dose & keeps the skin supple & fresh.
- Brightens the under eye.
- A tiny dollop is required per use & one tub lasts really long for the given price.
- Would have preferred a tube packaging rather than dipping fingers into the tub. As the cream is for eyes, one has to be extremely careful & sanitize hands before application.
An infallible formula for under eye dryness issues. Light textured extremely moisturising non sticky cream which lifts the under eye area providing good moisturisation & makes it radiant. Highly Recommended.
