Biossance Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel Is a Savior for Puffy Eyes – Review

Eye cream very often becomes a Goldilocks situation. Some are too heavy, some too light, and some end up being a bit of an Emperor’s New Clothes situation. I often find myself in that last circumstance, giving up and switching to a new tube or jar of eye cream before being able to reap any promised benefits. My undereye area, as of late, has been suffering from dryness and the subsequent fine lines that come from said dryness (and rubbing. Don’t rub your eyes too much — it actually does give you fine lines, it turns out). Biossance Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel promises to do all the de-puffing and dark circle-minimizing that most people who have bones to pick with their undereye areas might wish to tackle.

The first thing I noticed when using this was how incredibly hydrating it was. Finally, a nice, cool glass of ice water for my dry, flaky under-eyes. That’s what it feels like anyway. Some eye creams tend to make my eyes water or sting if it gets into my lash line, but not this one — thumbs up. My favorite way to apply it in the morning is to plop a dot under each eye and take a small jade roller and gently go over it to press it in while simultaneously manually draining any puffiness. It’s a top-notch method, I swear.

The gel sinks in very quickly, and most importantly, it keeps my undereye area nicely plumped and hydrated, so my moisturizer and makeup go over it seamlessly. I even notice that right after applying and letting it absorb, those fine, crinkly lines that form when I smile are way less noticeable. Dark circles aren’t really my issue, but I do often wake up with really puffy eyes and this definitely helps alleviate that.

Other than squalane (which is in the name and, as in all of Biossance’s products, is sustainable and plant-derived), this eye gel boasts niacinamide (a form of vitamin B3), Swiss apple stem cell extract, green tea extract, and the peptides eyeseryl and argireline to brighten dark circles, reduce puffiness, and hydrate the ever-living hell out of those undereye bags. Of all the things I want to be done to my undereye area, that would be the full menu.

Bonus: the formula is vegan, cruelty-free, fragrance-free, and non-toxic (EWG-verified, even). After the first week of using it, my eyelids managed to thwart the flakiness brought on by my home’s overzealous heater. Less flaking and dryness, less eye-rubbing, and less fine lines under those eyes. Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s peptides and squalane.

You’ll find this undereye gel in our March 2019 Allure Beauty Box for just $10.
