A couple of months back I was going through a rough sleepless stressful phase and with all those insomniac nights I had developed this serious stubborn eye bags and dark circles which made me look like a patient!
That’s when I started using this Omved eye contour gel. I didn’t have any great expectations when I started using this but I was quite impressed with this gel for certain (peculiar) reasons J
First of all I have a combination skin which turns dry or oily based on the weather and I get dark eye circles whenever I change my sleeping pattern or my food habits and they easily (luckily) disappear when I get back to my usual routine J
Now coming back to the product, Omved is quite a popular brand and I totally love their Ubtans and Aromatherapy range!

Instructions on how to use:
Take just a little bit of the Eye Contour Rescue Gel on your finger. Spot it around each eye. Very gently spread around the contours avoiding the eye, using gentle, tapping movements.
This gentle pressure helps stimulate circulation and drain excess fluid. Smooth gel from the inner corner of your eye out wards (upper and lower eyelids). Use daily at night. Also great any time of the day – use it to refresh your eyes before or after a night out. Awaken the next morning and see the difference. 100% safe and gentle for daily use
How I use this gel:
Eye contour lines are the first signs of aging and periodical use of this gel promises to control this fine lines. As I stated earlier, I started using this gel when I was having some serious sleeping issues. Due to my work and travel, I most often tend to slip away from the usual routine and end up suffering sleepless nights L
After using this gel for about 2 months now I actually started liking it and the good thing is, it actually worked for me!
The Gel is colorless, has a mild aloe vera fragrance which is quite gentle and since it’s a gel, I store this in my refrigerator (though the label doesn’t have an explicit note to do so) and what actually amused me was, this gel, when applied, gives you a chilling effect (as any other eye gel) but the best part is once the gel is absorbed by your sking, the skin feels kind of warm and soothing for few minutes!
The warmness is something like the one you get when you apply a Moov or a Volini or a Bengay but just that this one is quite mild. The warmth is so comfortable and relaxing and eases the tiredness very well!
It was sooper relaxing that whenever I had a problem sleeping, I just apply this gel and go to bed and since then I never had a sleeping trouble!
This gel was my sleep savior and the good thing is it actually controlled my morning eye bags to an extent! As I said earlier, if I sleep well, my dark circles automatically disappears so now I don’t have any major dark circles, but I cannot say that its 100% due to this gel because I am sleeping well these days Jbut not to forget! This gel was the one which aided me to sleep well J
The Omved Eye contour rescue gel retails for Rs. 370 for 15 g which is quite pricey but it’s been 2 months now since I started using this gel and still I have some 10% of the product left to finish J
So overall this is a good eye gel, when used consistently controls the eye bags and dark circles to an extent! If you have sooper sensitive eyes, the warmness may cause a mild uneasiness to you! So keep that in mind and try the product J
Message to Omved if you are reading this J
Dear Omved, the glass tub packaging is quite boring and bulky and I would prefer a tube packaging with a narrow nozzle where I can control the amount of product I squeeze out and the tube packaging would be quite handy and travel friendly too! J
So girls, have you tried this eye gel before? Did you like it? Do let me know your thoughts in the comments section below J
