Klairs Fundamental Eye Awakening Gel Review

Updated: Mar 16, 2021

I’m incredibly picky about eye products. I can use a less than ideal face wash or a moisturizer that’s not quite to my liking, but never a subpar eye treatment. It has to be light, pleasant to use, and effective. For years, I used nothing on my eyes at all, because I couldn’t find the right thing.

Klairs Fundamental Eye Awakening Gel is made with caffeine and red bean extract to reduce puffiness and dark circles while improving the skin tone. The formula is light and gel-like (makes sense, given the name).

This eye gel is cruelty free, vegan friendly, and made without silicones, ethanol, and artificial colors and fragrances. It’s available on* Wishtrend, YesStyle (save more with discount code KBHOBBIT), Stylevana, Amazon, and eBay.

How to use:

  • Apply 1-2 pumps to the eye area at the essence step

  • Finish with moisturizer

This product can also be used on other parts of the face with pigmentation issues. I top it off with moisturizer in the evening, but use it by itself in the mornings.

My impressions

This is a perfect eye product for me. I’m 31 and don’t have a lot of eye area issues. To me, prevention is key (and much easier than any attempts at reversal later).

Klairs Fundamental Eye Awakening Gel is light, non-greasy, and absorbs quickly. It doesn’t interfere with makeup and doesn’t irritate the eyes. I love the pump dispenser - very hygienic and easy to use. One pump is enough to treat both eyes.

One thing I struggle with on occasion is puffiness, especially in the morning. Life with a teething toddler does that to a person. Klairs Fundamental Eye Awakening Gel helps with that. It may be even more effective if stored in the fridge, but I keep mine in the bathroom.

I’ve been using this for about three weeks and am really enjoying it. My eyes look refreshed, as if I got eight hours of sleep instead of my usual five (which are interrupted). I’d recommend Klairs eye gel to anyone who is trying to prevent or treat the signs of aging around the eyes.
