I have used Joyal Beauty products before, and I’ve always been very pleased with the results. So I was very excited to try this eye serum when the opportunity arose.
With many products like this, you have to use them consistently for several months (recommendation is typically 6), before you can expect to see the full results. If that is the case, I am very excited, because I have noticed results after 2 weeks.
They are very subtle, as you can see from the photo. I work nights, and my sleep schedule is erratic. As a result, as I’ve gotten older, my eyes tend to look very tired. When I began using this gel, they were very puffy, the dark circles were fairly prominent, and I’m starting to get fine lines around my eye that I absolutely abhor. After about one week of using the gel, I could definitely tell that there was a major improvement in the puffiness. The skin around my eye felt tighter, and I didn’t look as tired. Today, 2 weeks in, the skin under my eye is about the same color as all the other skin on my face. The dark circles are not COMPLETELY gone, but they are considerably lighter.
As for the lines, there is a definite improvement, though I haven’t seen a miracle yet. Should I expect to? I’m not sure. If products completely removed all signs of aging, the cosmetic surgery industry would be out of business, right? So, I’m not expecting them to completely disappear, but any improvement is welcome. I intend to fight the signs of aging on my face as long as I can. 🙂
The puffiness is definitely a thing of the past. My eyes look brighter to me, and I don’t look exhausted all the time. So far, I am pleased.
The gel comes in a pump bottle, which takes a few pumps to get started. I think I counted about 10 before any product came out. A little certainly goes a long way, so about 1/2 a pump should actually cover both eyes. It smells wonderful, like cutting into a fresh cucumber. The consistency is nice. It isn’t runny, but it isn’t thick either. It is a transparent sort of white color.
I didn’t notice it the first couple of days, but since, I have noticed a slight stinging sensation. I attribute this to the licorice that is in the product, since licorice has firming properties. Most products that firm also sting. They are working on a new formula now that has avocado in place of the licorice, which should feel very luxurious, and eliminate any burning or stinging.
I received this product for free to test and give my honest and unbiased review. The results I have seen are very consistent with the quality I have come to expect from this company. I definitely plan to purchase more once this bottle runs out, and I will post again at that point so we can all see if I have discovered the fountain of youth. 🙂
