The skin of my under eye area has an entirely different skin texture than the rest of my face. That is why my under eye needs to be hydrated often. I used to use the regular moisturizer for my face in the eye area but now the light moisturizer does not feel enough. So, I shifted to moisturizers specially made for catering various under eye issues. The Undereye Cream from VLCC worked really nice but I wanted to try something different. I heard good reviews of Biotique Bio Almond Soothing & Nourishing Eye Cream from a friend of mine so I went for this one. Bear with me to know how this eye cream fared on me.

My Experience with Biotique Bio Almond Soothing & Nourishing Eye Cream
Packaging- This eye cream comes in a white colored tub with a deep green screw cap. The tub has another stopper like the lid to prevent contamination and spillage. The white tub has a more colorful outer packaging. This cardboard packaging has all the claims, ingredient details and usage instruction mentioned in it. Overall the packaging is sturdy and safe to travel with. The tub packaging is in general not that hygienic in nature but I always touch the product with clean hands to be on the safe side.
Colour & Texture- The under eye moisturizer is pure white in color. Its texture is creamy and density is medium. Its moisturizing capability is awesome. It spreads easily and makes my undernourished stretchy under eye skin supple in a jiffy. It does not give a matte finish, so it might feel a bit heavy on someone with oily eyelids.
Fragrance- This cream has mild and short staying herbal fragrance. I have tried lots of skin care products with almond as the main ingredient and most of them smelt nutty or buttery. This one does not smell like any of them; it has hints of camphor in it. I really enjoy the fragrance.
Experience- In winter I sometimes get flaky under eyes. This almond eye cream is a perfect fit for these situations. I use it two times a day and my under eye skin stays moisturized all day. Its formula is on the lighter side but it provides sufficient amount of nourishment. Most budget-friendly eye creams make big claims about the reduction of dark circles and fail to keep their promise. This cream does not make any such promise. I have pretty bad dark circles and after using this cream for more than 3 weeks my dark circles are just the same. Since there was no claim about it, I can’t consider it a con. But, my under eye area has certainly become more supple, smooth and healthy looking after continuous use. I think I would have to shift to a lighter formula than this for the summer but this cream will stay there in my winter favorites.
