Dry Eye Gel is a natural gel for calming and soothing red, itchy, dry or inflamed skin around the eye and on the eyelids.
In addition other eye conditions that affect men and women as well as children including eczema, contact dermatitis, blepharitis, rosacea, dust mite allergens and other air born allegens, contact lens solution, hay fever, washing powder allergies from bedding and pillows and some food allergies can also cause skin around the eye and on the eyelids to become itchy, red, swollen and dry.
Few itchy or dry skin remedies are suitable for use in the delicate and thin skin around the eye as most contain steroids or are too harsh for in this area.
Skin Magazine reviewed Skin Shop’s Cardiospermum Dry Skin Eye Gel, which is a light non-steroid gel that contains a plant extract of Cardiospermum, which comes from a vine grown mostly in South American regions and both its seeds and leaves have been used for centuries for use on skin allergies.
What’s the evidence Dry Eye Gel works?
Two UK trials and more than 12 published research trials have been carried out on Cardiospermum due to it’s medicinal effects on inflammatory skin conditions of the skin including eczema and dermatitis, so the research behind the main ingredient in Dry Eye Gel is convincing.
What is Dry Eye Gel like to use?
Our tester found the Dry Eye Gel to be a light non-sticky formulation. It was pleasant to use on very sensitive, itchy, red and dry skin around the eye and was instantly soothing and cooling.
How long does it take the Dry Eye Gel to work?
Our tester found the eye gel worked immediately to reduce itching and irritation. The gel soothed inflammation after 24 hours and dryness and redness were improved within 3-4 days. Wrinkles and under-eye creases from dry skin were less visible and softer after two weeks of use.
Value for money?
The tube looks small when you get it but in fact we were suprised to see that it holds 15ml. When you use the gel you have to use very little as it goes a long way due to the light gel formula. Our tester found it lasted far longer than they thought it would. And at under £7 a tube it’s not expensive, especially for an eye product.
