The PTR Cucumber De-Tox Hydra-Gel Eye Gels were my splurge purchase during the Sephora VIB sale. I had my eyes on these for a very long time, thanks to Allana Davison, and thought it was the perfect time to buy them.
Now, I haven’t used these a ton yet. Partly because I’m savoring them and partly because I don’t always need them. Since that it the case, I don’t have a ton to say about them.
I can tell you the benefits of them and what I think about them so far. Back to those benefits. According to the Sephora website, these eye gels reduce dryness, puffiness, dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles. I can tell you that for me, they have helped with keeping my under eye area moisturized and have helped with the puffiness I seem to always get right when I wake up in the morning. As for the other benefits, I’m not sure if they have helped with those yet.
I have very textured under eyes, so I’m curious to see if these little beauties will help with my fine lines and wrinkles. I’m not saying I have wrinkles yet, lolz, but because the under eye area is so delicate it helps to take preventative measures am I right?
What I love most about these gels is the fact that they are soo cooling. I personally like to apply them in the morning, so having that cooling sensation calm and wake me up from whatever leftover sleepiness I have is always a plus in my book.
Now for what I don’t like so much about these gels. I warn you though that it’s kind of a small detail that I don’t like. That small detail is the packaging. You get this little tub with a little spatula and the gels are all stacked up on each other inside that tub. Even with that little spatula, I can’t seem to separate the gels without them sliding down the side of the tub or just sliding all over the place period. I just think there is better way to package these.
The only other thing I’m not a fan of is the price. This is quite the spendy skincare product, but as I’m typing this I’m thinking that for what you get and the amount you get, it’s reasonable. You get 30 pairs of gels for $48. This is a good deal! Does it hurt my soul to have to pay that every single time I run out them? Sure! But I remember that I’d rather invest that kind of money in a skincare product than a makeup product.
What do you think of these gels? Have I convinced you to purchase them? Have you tried these gels out yourself? Let me know in the comments below. I love hearing from you!
Thanks for reading!
