Stars: ★★★★★





Smell 


I don't think there is that much scent in the first place to comment on. I do not smell it at all unless I deliberately sniff the gel. Not like it is anything bad or what~





Stars: ★★★★★





Consistency

It feels light on the skin, absorbs easily and does not leave a sticky feeling.





Stars: ★★★★★





Moisturising


The mosturising effect is nothing extraordinary. Sometimes I find it not sufficient, especially when I am using a more drying concealer around my eye area. It does not cause milia seeds around my eye area so I am all good. 






Stars: ★★★★






Depuffing 




It does what it promises to do - depuff the eye area - effectively. This is what I like to use when my eyes are swollen. It works well for both undereye and around the eyes. My swollen eye bags looked better after I started incorporating the face shop raspberry eye gel in my regime. It also help deswell my upper eyelids. Yea my upper lids (double eyelid area) will be puffy if I did not get enough sleep. It emphasises my double eyelids but I looked like I just cried or something.

Left: Before (swollen eyelids) | Right: After



Stars: ★★★★★





Dark circles


Sadly I did not see much improvement in my dark circles. Still as bad as normal. 





Stars: ★☆☆☆☆





The verdict:


I am happy it did what it is supposed to. It is a instant perk me up when I didn't get enough rest. I've been having less than 5h of sleep amost daily this two months and this has really helped me look.. Ok. It is a pity it doesn't improve my eye circles significantly. If you are looking for something to deswell your eyes, do check this out. There is a reason why raspberry roots series sold a million pieces!




Pros:

- Deswell eyes/did what it promised
- Easily absorbed
- Non-sticky
- Good packaging


Cons:

- did not improve my dark circles
- Not as moisturising as I like it to be





Rating: 9/10
Repurchase: Probably not as swollen eyes are not my main concern most of the time. 


Product is a deluxe sample included in the little gift set from TheFaceShop Raspberry Roots 1st Million Anniversary. All opinions are of my own.
