Thanks to frequent Vichy marketing campaigns I have had a bunch of Vichy Aqualia Thermal Awakening Eye Balm's samples to trial and witness its results for myself. I still have mixed feelings about thus buddy though. It is rather strange. On one hand it seems to be working OK, producing the feeling of smoothness to the skin and having a light texture. I also have had no allergic reactions so far. But on the other hand, its mediocre absorption features and a whiff of alcohol scent have both saddened me (though the ingredients do not contain alcohol, I can still smell it!). It does not provide any cooling effect, which I though the word 'awakening' should have meant.
Speaking of real outcome, well, I have seen none. The gel did barely anything to alleviate the puffiness, dark circles and other related issues. It has provided moisturizing but only immediately after application, and that effect was a short-lived one. Thus I presume, Awakening Eye Balm is designed for a young skin without any major problems.
In a nutshell, Vichy Aqualia Thermal Awakening Eye Balm may be used for a change (f.e. if you come across it as a gift/present or a sample) but it hardly provides any visible results.
