Mamaearth Under Eye Cream Review

After becoming a skincare blogger, I have been serious about my skincare routine. Although before this, I used to follow a CTM routine. That's it! I never used to apply face masks and et al previously when in college and office. But one thing I still regret is, not using an under eye cream during my 20s (yes I just entered my 30s 😭😭😭). Even today while applying my night cream, I need to remind myself to reach out for an under eye cream. And then laziness takes over and I sleep without applying an under eye cream. How nice it would be, if the cream you use can double up as an under eye cream as well. Today's review is about one such under eye cream which can also be used as a face cream. Read the review to know more!

My experience
The packaging is similar to the Mama Earth C3 Face Mask, although being a little small. The packaging is secure enough to be carried around, but the cream may spill if you tilt the jar while opening. I like the packaging of all Mama Earth products to be honest.

Now coming ro the consistency of the cram it is a but runny sort although not gel. The cream is beige (very light beige) coloured with milky consistency. I like the consistency as it's easy to spread and beneficial for my oily acne prone skin. The runny consistency is a but problematic once you open a jar and try taking the cream out. Due care has to be taken not to tilt the jar as it may lead to spillage. The fragrance of the cream is light floral which isn't over powering as well as non lingering. The fragrance fades away as soon as we apply and isn't that noticeable. I have a pretty sensitive nose which when introduced to strong or lingering fragrances sneezes a lot. So that cream is a perfect fit for my taste and choice of fragrance. I find a little similarity between the fragrance of Mama Earth Nourishing Body Lotion and this cream. Nonetheless both have nice fragrances.

The cream sufficiently moisturises the under eye area as well as the face when used as a face cream. The cream gets absorbed faster than thought. It is not a light weight cream. When applied during day time, if doesn't give an oily feeling or greasy feeling. But we do feel that we have applied something. I get too conscious while using it as a day treatment for both under eye as well face. I prefer using it as an under eye as well as face treatment as a part of my night care routine.

The cream instantly gives a little glow to my skin and gives a little mattifying effect. The under eye area feels smooth and hydrated. I have noticed very small change in the fading of dark circles in the past 2 and half weeks. However while curing dark circles we also need to pay attention to our sleep hours, diet, gadgets' usage time. My dark circles are mainly due to lack of sleep and screen time (🙁☹️). So this cream is helpful in hydrating the under eye area as well as reducing dark circles over a period of time. I really like how this cream doubles up as a face cream as well. So while travelling we don't need to carry separate creams.

Recommendation
I would totally recommend the Mamaearth Under Eye Cream as it doubles up as a face cream as well. This is specifically helpful for lazy people like me who often forget to take care of under eye area inspite of taking enough care of face. The cream also makes travel packing lighter as it can be used as both. And being available on Amazon is definitely an In for people who frequently buy on Amazon (Like me 😀). This is a definite repurchase for me!
