Chanel Hydra Beauty Radiance Eye Gel

Being the legend that my husband is, he actually went to a Chanel counter for my birthday to discuss my skincare woes with the sales assistant (apparently I spend a lot of time talking about my under eye circles, how I need a higher factor facial SPF and of course my undying love for Chanel nail polish- all of which I knew myself, I just wasn't aware he was retaining the information. Good old Hubster). I already showed you the beautiful Bel-Argus polish (HERE) and after using the eye cream for the past three weeks, I can now give a proper opinion on it. 

Chanel Hydra Beauty Radiance Eye Gel

Chanel describe this as a hydration protection radiance eye gel for puffiness and dark circles. There's 15mls in the sleek plastic container (as always, is there anything nicer to have on your nightstand than a Chanel product? The answer is of course, no) which doesn't sound like a lot but I use it every night and only a tiny amount is required for both eyes so I haven't even made a dent in it.
What I love about this eye gel is how soothing it is- it feels super light and cooling on and as my eyes can get irritated after cleansing at night, this is the perfect antidote. It has a very delicate scent, so is completely inoffensive and good for those with sensitive skin, I would imagine. 
I always find it hard to tell how effective eye creams are because I think they tend to be one of those products you have to use over a long period of time to realise the full benefits of but I can say that in just the past three weeks I've definitely noticed a reduction in puffiness and redness under my eyes when I wake up in the mornings, which for me, is a big deal. I was starting to look like I spend my nights as a drug-addled werewolf (no, that's not actually a thing but if you try and picture it, then you'll find it illustrates my point nicely). 
So it's a big thumbs up from me for the Chanel eye gel! What eye product are you currently using?  


  1. I love it too. Could sniff my CHANEL lotions and potions all day x

    1. They smell so good, don't they?! I can't stop smelling the moisturiser & sun lotion, just amazing! xx

  2. I just bought it to bring down my really bad dark eye circles and lines under my long will it take for me to see good results..?!
