This EyeGel is very light, it tightens and lifts the under eye area instantly. The brightening effect may be visible after 2 weeks of use. While it hydrates the under eye, it makes the area a little dry. You can use a more creamy eye cream on top of it if you don’t want your concealer to look cakey. I do not have puffy eyes but the Caffeine included in this product is beneficial for de-puffing. Safe to be used on the eyelids. This eye gel contains Glycerin and Sorbitol as humectants; Aloe extract and Isopropyl Myristate and Panthenol as emollients. Other ingredients are:
