One of the newest additions to the Melvita Nectar de Roses Collection is Fresh Eye Contour Gel ($35). This fresh, light, fragrance-free gel helps diminish puffiness and dark circles around the eyes. It combines all the freshness and moisturizing benefits of mountain roses with the draining and decongesting properties of cornflower water to reduce puffiness. Red seaweed extract, rich in polysaccharides and vitamins A and B12, invigorates and improves blood flow, to boost microcirculation and reduce the blue undertones of dark circles.
Dark circles are not a problem for me, but puffiness certainly is. I’ve tried a lot of products but with this gel I immediately felt my under eye tighten. In the past if I felt a tightening, I also experienced flaking when the product dried–this is NOT true of the Fresh Eye Contour Gel at all. It is very lightweight, soothing and adds a fresh feeling to the eyes. It does not interfere with concealer or foundation.
Packaging is a simple squeeze tube. To get even more benefits I would suggest that Melvita add a metal tip for a cooling effect. That said, you can always keep this in the fridge to get the same effect.
A note about Melvita: 99% of the total ingredients are from natural origin, 32% of the total ingredients from Organic Farming.
Bottom Line: I cannot say how this product works on dark circles but it is effective and gentle for under eye puffiness with natural ingredients. Definitely worth a try!
