Bioderma Sensibio Eye Contour Gel Review
Once again, Bioderma has really impressed me with their highly effective yet gentle skincare and after trying their Sensibio eye moisturizer, it has now become one of my beauty bag staples!
I find reviewing eye creams to be one of, if not, the toughest job in my industry, simply because I find it difficult to see results in a timely manner which then leads to months of waiting to properly assess their effectiveness. This is especially the case for eye creams that proclaim wrinkle reduction, dark circle reduction, skin tightening, or lifting. But even those who claim to be just moisturizers or have depuffing agents, usually produce such faint results that it’s so hard to judge whether they are doing anything at all!
But not with this eye cream! After just one day of using the Bioderma Sensibio Eye Contour Gel I saw a dramatic difference!
First off, I must address my own personal skincare concerns. For years, I have suffered from extremely sensitive and reactive skin around my eye area; so severe to the point of occasional eczema on the eyelids themselves. This has made trying and finding suitable eye makeup and eye creams an endless struggle. I believe I have tried nearly every eye cream on the market, only to end up puffy eyed, with red, burning eyelids in the process.
Many eye creams feature quite harsh ingredients, especially those for anti-wrinkles, or lightening dark circles and even for de-puffing. This is why most eye creams will instruct you to use the cream only “around” your eye area, circling the eye and along the orbital bone. This has always made me wonder how they ever intend on working if you can’t even put them close to your troubled areas in the first place?! But regardless, these harsh chemicals can reek havoc on those with sensitive eyes and hence my quest to find the perfect eye cream.
It is rare to find an eye cream these days that doesn’t include the fancy properties to reduce wrinkles, lighten, or depuff. Finding an eye moisturizer is near impossible without a load of other ingredients that can aggravate your skin. As a woman in her early 30’s, I don’t have a lot of wrinkles, nor do I stay up late enough to incour dark circles and puffiness, so what are women like us supposed to use then?
Well, the answer is the Sensibio Eye Contour Gel!
This gel, more of an ultra-light cream, is specifically designed for sensitive and even the most intolerant skin types. but it’s not just for those with sensitive skin. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone who is looking for a straightforward eye moisturizer, especially for the Winter months.
The eye contour gel, soothes and moisturizes the eye area, but also smooths fine lines and de-puffs the undereye without any harsh chemicals! It does this by using innovative ingredients such as decongestants that eradicate undereye puffiness, moisturizers that instantly absorb to provide non-greasy hydration, and soothing elements that calm skin. But the most innovative ingredient of them all is Toléridine, a trademarked ingredient that works to reduce skin’s sensitivity and increase it’s tolerance to deal with external aggressors. This means, not only does the Toléridine work instantly to provide anti-inflammatory properties but over time it will raise the skin’s tolerance threshold to external aggressors like pollution, stress, and harsh climates!
But the most visible results I got when using this cream was the smoothing of fine lines. Without using any harsh anti-wrinkle ingredients, the Sensibio Eye Contour Gel smoothed out ALL of the fine lines around my eye area! I have never seen these kind of immediate results with any other eye cream. Even though it isn’t marketed as a wrinkle reducer, this eye cream worked magic on all those little lines and impending crows feet! Visibly reducing the appearance of fine lines within one day! All while remaining gentle enough for the most sensitive skins! Now, that’s just unheard of in this industry!
The Bioderma Sensibio Eye Contour Gel is simply the best eye cream I have tried to date! Within one day of use, my eye area was less puffy, smoothed & toned, brighter, and hydrated! Bioderma has always been one of the leaders in skincare in terms of research and innovation, and the Eye Contour Gel is no exception.
