I have been using the Forest Essentials Intensive Eye Cream for 2 years now and I love it. But this time when it got over I wanted to try something different, so I got the Colorbar Hydra White Intense Whitening Hydrating Under-Eye Serum. I have been using it for two months now and I am ready to share my experience with it now.
Eyes are perhaps the most beautiful features of humans. And it is as delicate as it is beautiful. You always need to pay a little extra attention; a little extra care to your eyes as they tend to show the signs of ageing earlier than your other features. Also because the skin under the eye is very tender and thin and gets easily bruised. Even an intense pressure of fingers can easily bruise the area.
Also, that’s where the lines first form showing all the signs of aging. You have a sleepless night, crying jag, stressful days; anything at all your eyes easily give you away thanks to the dark circles. Even when your face looks fresh and radiant, your appearance can look dull if your eyes are fatigued and you have dark circles. So you need to take extra care with your eyes and be regular with its care.
An innovative and efficacious eye serum that infuses brightness into your eye contour. It boosts micro-circulation while actively targeting dark circles and pigmentation. The light and comfortable texture melts deeply into the skin providing instant and long-lasting hydration. Suitable for all skin types.
How to Use:
- Press the tube gently and load a small amount on the tip
- Massage gently into your eye area directly from the applicator tip
Packaging – This is probably my first skin care product from this brand. Colorbar Hydra White Intense Whitening Hydrating Under-Eye Serum comes in a royal blue glossy cardboard box with the brand name and product details embossed in silver. It is in sync with the “Hydra White” range from Colorbar. The serum comes in the same royal blue coloured tube with a silver cap and silver neck detailing.
The tube on the inside comes with a metal ball which is shaped in such a way that it can fit the under eye contour . It has a hole in the middle so that you can dispense the desired amount of product.
I like the packaging a lot coz, firstly its very attractive and luxurious. Secondly the tube packaging allows the control on the amount of product u need to dispense. And thirdly coz you don’t need to use your fingers to apply the serum coz you can apply it directly with the help of the metal ball, which not only keeps it hygienic, but also cools the under ye area. The packaging is very travel friendly as the cap stays firmly put and hence you can carry it with you while travelling without any worry about spillage.
Texture & Formula – It has a serum like consistency. As in, it is neither too thin nor too runny. It is white in color, initially looks thick but once applied under the eyes it becomes light and gets easily absorbed. It has a very light-weight texture and doesn’t feel heavy or greasy under the eyes, but at the same time it hydrates and moisturises the under eye very well.
I usually take a drop of the serum under each eye and massage it directly under my eyes with the metal ball. It gets absorbed into my skin easily. And the metal ball feels so soothing and cooling against my skin. Especially when I have puffy eyes. After application you get a tingly sensation under your eyes which hardly lasts for 10-15 secs. On the days I feel my eyes are feeling very tired I massage it an extra 2-3 mins with the metal ball and it just feels so good.
As soon as I applied Colorbar Hydra White Intense Whitening Hydrating Under-Eye Serum to my eyes the first time I felt an immediate brightness around my eyes. My eyes felt more awake, fresh and hydrated. And even though it hydrated my under eyes, it did not leave it greasy. One of the best things I like about this eye serum is that it works so well under makeup.
I love my FE under eye cream, but if I go even a little overboard with its application, my under eye makeup used to move like crazy and with this serum I have no such problem. Hence, I love using it under my makeup. Also with regular use I have noticed that, my under eye area looks much brighter and awake.
And also the dark circles have reduced considerably. Sometimes my under-eye skin gets uneven and this serum has reduced that too. And my eyes no longer look dull and punched out. But, it doesn’t do anything for the lines under my eyes though and nor does the product claim to do anything about it.
Colorbar Hydra White Intense Whitening Hydrating Under-Eye Serum(Price 890 for 12 ml)
If you are looking for a decently priced good eye serum which brightens and hydrated your under eye area. Reduces dark circles and dullness to a large extent and also works well under the makeup, then you should definitely give Colorbar Hydra White Intense Whitening Hydrating Under-Eye Serum a try. Especially for the metal ball which works as a great massager for the under-eye area, which is definitely needed for your eyes and it also soothes and cools the puffed eyes.
I definitely like this eye serum a lot and I think I will repurchase it if I don’t find anything better. Meanwhile my hunt for my Holy Grail Eye Cream is on. If anyone knows any eye cream which works on fine lines, do let me know.
