Review: Vichy Aqualia Thermale Awakening Eye Balm

Tuesday, January 3, 2017

*Don't mind the smudged label, it's proof that I used it a lot!
What it is
The Vichy Aqualia Thermale Awakening Eye Balm is an under-eye cream that "helps to counteract signs of fatigue, including dark circles and puffiness"

The price of this product is not that bad (at around $30) and comes from a reputable company. The unique thing about Vichy is that they only use water from the hot springs town of Vichy, France, in their product. I've already done a review on another Vichy product here.

What I like 
It is a very light-weight formula, kind of like the texture of hair-gel, however it dries pretty much instantly. That being said, it does not leave an "oily" feeling under your eyes. 

This is the perfect formula for someone with "young skin" since it pretty much targets this population. If you're someone under the age of 25, this would be perfect for you. 

What I don't like
I'm not exactly certain how much this product reduces dark circles as it does for puffiness. It is also a fairly mild treatment, so I wouldn't necessarily purchase this if you have specific "issues" with your under-eye circles, since it probably wouldn't do much to repair them as it would to "upkeep" them in a healthy condition (hopefully what I'm saying makes sense). I also would not use this product if you are prone to dry skin around your eyes.

The Verdict
I would repurchase this product due to liking the Vichy beauty line and the price. I however wouldn't rate it as an "amazing" product.

What's your favorite under-eye product?
