True Skin Care Soothing Eye Gel uses cucumber and aloe to help relieve swelling under eyes and to help eliminate dark circles. They also use glycyrrhiza glabra root extract which is also known as licorice. When this part of the licorice root is used in skin care it acts as an anti-inflammatory and soothing anti-irritant. Many people with a condition called Rosacea use licorice to help lessen the pink tone in their skin. I love that True Skin Care Soothing Eye Gel uses the licorice because I haven't seen it in many eye serums and gels before.
I used the True Skin Care Soothing Eye Gel in the morning while I was getting ready for work. After the gel had dried on my face I added my moisturizer and went on to put my makeup on. I didn't notice anything different with how my makeup was applied or how long it lasted. When I took my makeup off at night I noticed that normally I have dark circles under my eyes after a long day and after the first use they weren't really visible. I ended up washing my face and applying some more eye gel before I went to bed. The blushing effect happened again, but no irritation or anything.
