Aroma Magic Almond Under Eye Cream Review
I haven’t faced dark circle issues in my school/college life or even few months back and had a perception that dark circles are not going to haunt me any time soon. But now, my not so healthy lifestyle, spectacles and hours on laptop has really taken a toll on my eyes and proved me wrong, when I noticed slight pigmentation under my eyes and the fine lines that have started to make their appearance.
There are various home remedies like putting Cucumber or Potato slices to keep dark circles and wrinkles under control. But I am all the more lazy to make an effort to do so and also I am always short of time to go to kitchen and cut the slices and put them on eyes and relax. So, I finally convinced myself to get an under eye cream and decided to start with Aroma Magic Almond under eye cream.

Packaging:-Aroma Magic Almond Under Eye Cream comes in small white tube with a red coloured screw cap. The packaging is way too simple but easy to use. The tube is opaque so I can’t see the amount left in it. The tube is so small that it looks like a baby tube sitting beside my lotions and creams on the shelf. The tube is convenient to use and travel friendly.
My experience with Aroma Magic Almond Under Eye Cream:-
Aroma Magic Almond Under Eye Cream is white in colour. The cream is thick but spreads easily on the under eye area. Normally, I end up squeezing out more than the required amount and it took me 4-5 days to learn that just a small drop (half the pea- size) is enough for each eye. The cream is very moisturising and gets absorbed with a little massage.
However, it leaves a slightly oily film on the skin. I have a dry skin but even then I prefer to use this cream at night only as it may make the under eye slightly greasy/oily during day. The cream has a fragrance which I didn’t notice until I smelled it for review purpose. It has a mild herbal smell but I didn’t liked it much.
According to the directions to use, wipe off the cream with damp cotton after 20 min. But I prefer not to do this and let the cream stay on my under eye area and do wonders(;). The cream has started to show its effect in 3-4 weeks with regular usage. It has reduced my under-eye pigmentation and also made my dull under-eye area look slightly brighter and healthier. However, I couldn’t see its effect on few fine lines that I have.
