HealGel Eye


Back in November I was kindly given the opportunity to try out a product from the brand HealGel. After having experienced HealGel Face (read my review here) I was incredibly keen to try out something else from that line up, therefore as soon as HealGel Eye* arrived on my doorstep I found myself rather excited to give it a whirl.

HealGel Eye* is an anti-ageing aqueous gel formula which is designed to help with the appearance of fine lines, puffiness and dark circles. As I have mentioned before, I'm only 24 but surely it can't hurt to include an anti-ageing product here and there within my skincare routine. What intrigued me most however were the claims that this product could help with dark circles which more often than not are one of my main skincare concerns.  

In terms of packaging this product again hits the nail on the head, as with HealGel Face the packaging is clinical, crisp and concise; just the way I like it. In fact all of the products by the brand so far follow this particular style which is something I really do admire, there is just something about it that makes me think I'm onto a winning product before I've even tried it. Again the actual product inside is dispensed through a pump which is once again another positive aspect for me as it is far more hygienic compared to pots of creams etc.

As I have briefly mentioned this product is an aqueous gel type texture which is simply beautiful to apply. It is so smooth and quite cooling to use on the delicate eye area, I find it really refreshing for the morning time in particular. I find that this sinks in quite nicely after a minute or two leaving my under eye area prepped for any concealer that will be applied. HealGel Eye* contains the magic ingredient hyaluronic acid which helps to lock moisture deeper within the skin helping to firm up the eye area. This product acts as a lovely base and does not lead to concealer products to bobble up; in fact it makes the concealer look a whole lot smoother. 

I've being using this product pretty much every morning and night since it arrived and I have to say I really do like it. Personally I've had a quite a few emotional months which have resulted in plenty of tears which of course leave me with extremely puffy eyes in the morning; in fact they have often looked as if I've been stung by a bee! This product sure has helped calm that puffiness down, it's not a miracle worker by any stretch of the imagination but it has helped me with these issues. In regards to dark circles I have seen an improvement over a number of weeks; however I do think it is something that you need to keep using as you can't expect to see a difference after a few weeks in.

Overall I'm so pleased that I have had the chance to try out this beautiful product. At a price of £32 I'm sorry to say it isn't that cheap however I can assure you that this goes a long way, therefore you only need a small amount each time so this would last you for quite a long time.

  1. Great post! I'd love to try something like this but it's a little bit out of my price range. I love your photography here too, do you mind me asking what camera and lens you've used?

  2. Yes it is a bit expensive, I'm sure I saw it with a discount in the Christmas sales on one of the main beauty sites, possibly Feel Unique. Probably finished now but at least you know and that site often does discount codes :). Thank you so much for the kind comments about my pictures! I use a Canon 600D and the lens I used was the 50mm f/1.8, I'm still getting to grips with it. I've had nothing like it before xx

  3. I've got a 50mm but I hardly ever use it! I think I might have to dig it out and experiment :)

  6. I always think it's worth spending a bit more of skincare because you only get one skin! I'm always looking for new recommendations :)

  7. I'm with you to be honest Annie, I wish it wasn't the case though. I'd rather spend more on skincare and buy cheaper make up :) x

  8. I'm always on the hunt for a good eye cream that will help me with my dark circles. Currently I'm using the Himalaya Herbals eye cream that's very lovely, but maybe I'll try this one out when I finish it :)

  30. I think they do! I'd love for them to bring out some other products such as a clay mask or some type of radiance mask xx

  31. I have always been drawn to the minimal to-the-point packaging and anything with Hyaluronic Acid just sings to me! :-) I might give it a go actually.. I need a heavy duty eye treatment that works and keeps the area plump and hydrated!

  32. This was really but the hefty price tag that comes with it is something worth considering. Out of all the products I tried from HealGel it was HealGel Face that was my favourite, it was so lovely to use.
