Aroma Magic Under Eye Gel Review
(Author ~ Jahnvi D)
I started using eye creams when I first saw the Garnier eye roll on. I was a teenager back then! Anyway, I really wanted an eye cream because I have dark circles thanks to my constant rubbing the eyes and not sleeping on time. I wonder why I could never sleep early. It is most certainly not insomnia because I sleep all day! Haha. :-D I am sure a lot of you can relate to it. Anyway, ever since, I tried quite a few eye creams that ended up in the garbage later on, on getting stale. I am now being very good with following a regimen because I am 25 years old and am dreading fine lines. The reason I chose the Aroma Magic under eye gel is that I had used it before and liked it and it suited my budget too.
I decided I’ll be consistent with using an eye cream this time around… But did it make a difference? Read on…
Price: 135 INR for 20g
Aroma Magic under eye gel claims to prevent fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and lips and lighten dark circles. The brand mainly uses natural ingredients and essential oils. This cream has ingredients like rose extracts, lemon peel, aloe vera , green tea, lavender oil and chamomile oil. All of the ingredients are known to lighten dark circles and prevent fine lines.
It is packed in a little tube with a sturdy red cap. It is very travel friendly and I prefer my eye creams in a tube as it is more hygienic that way. Tub packaging is a turn off. It has a vegetarian mark on it, with a short list of ingredients. All the ingredients are not mentioned on the tube. It also states that their products are not tested on animals.
Smell and Consistency:
It has a very mild smell that is pleasant and it doesn’t stay for a very long time. It smells much like the lavender and chamomile essentials oils used in it. The consistency is that of a gel and it spreads on the skin easily making it a decent eye cream. You don’t have to struggle to blend this in. it is light.
The under eye gel has a very light texture, like aloe vera gel and is very cooling on the under eye area. It hydrates the skin and gets absorbed easily.
How to use:
Apply the eye cream gently with your ring finger until absorbed. Use this twice a day for results.
I loved the cooling effect this gel had on my eyes and the fact that it gets absorbed easily. Unlike a few eye creams that I had tried, this doesn’t irritate the eyes. I wear contact lenses and I don’t have complaints with the gel. Some eye creams just sting so much! I have been using it for a few months now, twice a day and I do see a change. It lessened the darkness to a great extent. My under eyes are skill dark but not embarrassingly so.I don’t have too many fine lines under my eyes… it is just those lines that have always been there. So I can’t say it works in reducing fine lines. Maybe I should stop hanging around with my phone too much. Also, I don’t do much else for my under eyes. It takes patience and religious application to work. I must say it does a decent job. I don’t look for wonders , nor am I interested in buying an eye cream with whitening chemicals. This in a very budget friendly price, works for me.
I think this a decent product for the low price. It doesn’t have whitening agents and is natural and cooling. The gel being vegetarian and cruelty free is an awesome thing.

BnB Editor Shreya says, “Great product for people who are looking good quality under-eye cream. The formula is lightweight and easy absorbing.If helped me to reduce my under-eye circles. Those suffering from severe under eye circles/ pigmentation need to make necessary dietary and lifestyle changes (only beauty products won’t help).”
