This week I reviewed one of the items that came inside the February LF Beauty Box. Today I’m going to review another one. The product I’m reviewing today is by the brand Polaar. It’s their Icy Magic Instant Eye Contour Energiser. Or simply said, an eye cream. Because I’ve been struggling with a swollen under eye area for a while I was quite hesitant to try it, but I ended up doing it anyway and today I’m going to share my thoughts. If you’re interested in finding out how I experienced this product, make sure you continue reading!
The Polaar Icy Magic Instant Eye Contour Energiser comes in a small silver tube with a white lid. On the front it has a little blue circle with some product information on it. Overall I do think the packaging looks very cute. It’s simple but elegant. The only thing I don’t really like about it is the lid because the material it is made of is very cheap and cracks easily. Aside from that, I really like it.
When you open up the product you will find a little roller ball with white stuff on it. This is the applicator. The ball is made out a metal material which feels cold on the skin and therefore helps to reduce the puffiness underneath your eyes. I also think that this sort of an applicator is very efficient since it applies and distributes the product at the same time.
The product itself is quite thin and looks like a gel based product. It is semi-transparent and has a white colour to it. The product is very thin and feels very lightweight on the skin. Because of the rollerball applicator it feels very cold when it comes into contact with the skin, but that’s a good thing.
When it comes to the results I have to say I’m pretty much neutral. Aside from cooling down the under eye area I haven’t noticed any big differences. The puffiness is slightly less visible but the difference is very small and hardly noticeable for someone who isn’t looking for it.
Another reason why I’m not obsessed with it is because it’s not completely irritation-free. It does start to sting a little when I apply it underneath my eyes and if I use it a few days in a row my eyes will get swollen and very painful. Of course that doesn’t mean it will cause swelling to everyone. I have particularly sensitive eyes. But if you are prone to irritation in that area I just don’t think it’s a very good idea to use this.
Even though I’m not in love with it, I still think it’s a product that is worth it. Mainly because it just feels really nice on the skin. If you have lots of trouble waking up in the morning this can definitely help you and in that case I do think it is worth it.
Overall I think this Polaar Icy Magic Instant Eye Contour Energiser is pretty okay. It’s not something for me since my eyes are very sensitive, but it definitely feels really nice on the skin. If you’re on the hunt for something that is going to make a huge difference this isn’t it, but if you’re just looking for a nice eye cream or something to help you stay awake in the morning, this might be a great product to try out!
The Polaar Icy Magic Instant Eye Contour Energiser is available at Lookfantastic for €24,45 (10 ml).
That was it for today’s review. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know what you use to keep your under eye area looking fresh!
