I’m usually not a fan of eye products, as evidenced by my lack of reviews on them; Good Molecules’ Yerba Mate Wake Up Eye Gel has me rethinking that! In my experience, eye creams and oils have gotten in my eyes, don’t sink into the skin, or elicit an allergic reaction. Truth be told, I gave up on eye products for a while but decided to give this one a shot. For $6.00 USD, what was there to lose?
I absolutely love this eye gel. I use it day and night and love it’s smooth texture and slightly aromatic scent of tea. It wears beautifully under makeup and doesn’t leave a greasy or sticky residue. It doesn’t get into my eyes or contacts, and didn’t cause any irritation or allergic reaction.With powerhouse ingredients like caffeine, and hyaluronic acid, this gel is light but deeply moisturizing. Its hero ingredient, however, is Yerba mate. According to their website:
Yerba mate is a legendary tree from South America known for its powers to stimulate the mind and body. It’s also a natural source of rich antioxidants and polyphenols. When used in skincare, yerba mate helps slow the appearance of premature aging caused by the sun and UV rays. The result is younger-looking, more radiant, energized skin. Good Molecules’ Yerba mate is “sourced from a reforestation consortium of farmers that are engaged in restoring the native Atlantic Forest in Brazil. Traceability and sustainable forest management guaranteed by the Araucária+ Initiative.”
This product claims to brighten, depuff, and hydrate your eyes. I can agree that this eye is surprisingly moisturizing. While I don’t struggle with puffy eyes, I do have some stubborn under eye circles. Did it magically take away my dark circles? No, but I have seen some improvement. And of $6.00, it performs leaps and bounds above some other expensive eye treatments that I’ve tried in the past. Repurchasing this will be a no-brainer for me!
A delicate scent of green tea. The scent is beautifully soft and dissipates quickly.
