When it comes to skincare, one of the areas of your face that requires special attention is the area around your eyes. As one of the thinnest and most sensitive skin on your body, your skincare routine should include a specialized eye product that will tackle fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness and more.
One product that Amazon shoppers have been using to help care for the delicate skin around their eyes is the Sensibio Eye Contour Gel by Bioderma. The dermatologist-developed product is currently on sale for $21 and recently earned a place on the retailer's Movers & Shakers list, after experiencing an increase in sales by more than 2,000 per cent.
The Sensibio Eye Contour Gel Cream is specially formulated to help reduce the look of fine lines and puffiness around the eye. The soothing, fragrance-free gel is suitable for contact lens wearers and can be worn under makeup.
The gel contains products like dimethicone, a lightweight silicone-based ingredient t that helps fill in wrinkles and lines to deliver that noticeably smoother effect. Since dimethicone is such a pore and wrinkle-filling ingredient, some people worry that it can clog pores and lead to breakouts, but experts seem to disagree. While all skincare can potentially irritate skin and lead to breakouts, research has shown that dimethicone is safe to use in skincare and haircare products.
What people are saying
Aside from landing a spot on Amazon's Movers & Shakers list, Sensibio's Eye Contour Gel Cream has earned a 4.3-star rating based on more than 1,100 customer reviews.
Shoppers have called the gel a great option for anyone with sensitive skin and a "fantastic" non-greasy product to soothe and moisturize the skin.
"The bags under my eyes have diminished," one shopper wrote, adding that it takes only a dab of the product under each eye to notice results.
"This does not bother my eyes one bit," another said.
"It de-puffs and makes my around the eyes area look bright," a shopper wrote.
While there are hundreds of positive reviews to choose from, not everyone seems to have seen the same results. Some shoe shoppers have said they've noticed that the gel is great for removing puffiness under the eye, but hasn't done much to improve the look of any fine lines or wrinkles. Other shoppers said that results seem to last while you continue to use the product, but aren't necessarily long term.
If you're looking for a product to help tame the bags under your eyes, the Sensibio Eye Contour Gel by Bioderma might be for you. The multipurpose product has earned rave reviews from shoppers who have noticed a significant improvement in the overall look of their under-eye area — however, as with all products, results vary.
It should also be mentioned that for any severe skincare concerns, you should most likely consult a dermatologist for some long-term solutions.
