Name: Rosehip Eye Gel
From Mukti’s website:
A light and hydrating gel infused with rosehip, a potent natural antioxidant and an abundance of nurturing vitamins. This liquid silk, gel based formula will assist to soothe puffy, tired eyes and firm and tone the skin around the delicate eye area.
What I liked:
- lightweight texture, absorbs easily
- soothes and moisturizes the eye area
- reduces puffiness
- has antioxidant properties
- a little goes a long way
- the pretty, opaque bottle has a pump dispenser that will prevent the antioxidants from degrading
What I didn’t like:
- didn’t firm nor tone my eye area
- doesn’t treat dark circles
- pump dispenser tends to pour out too much product
- some may consider it too expensive
These days, I rarely use eye creams. My day moisturizer doubles up as an eye cream for me so I don’t feel the need to purchase a separate product for the eye area. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy trying something new when I have the chance. And when the lovely Tine of Beautyholics Anonymous sent me the Mukti Rosehip Eye Gel, an organic eye gel infused with antioxidants and vitamins which promises to soothe puffy eyes, I couldn’t wait to put it to the test.
I’m not sure that calling it a gel is appropriate, though, because despite its name, the texture is not really that of a gel, but resembles more that of a lightweight cream. All you have to do is apply it gently to the eye area with your ring finger. Don’t rub it in as that could lead to more wrinkles in the long run. The gel doesn’t feel sticky at all, absorbs easily and makes a good base for makeup. Also, a little bit goes a loooong way so the gel will last you for months.
Mukti Rosehip Eye Gel soothes and moisturizes the eye area, leaving skin soft and smooth. I also noticed that it reduces puffiness (although the effects are only temporary) allowing you to face the day looking fresh and rested. It is also useful to lessen the appearance of puffiness after you’ve had a crying session. However, the gel didn’t make my skin firmer or more toned as it promised, and it also doesn’t do anything for dark circles. So, if you’re looking for a cream to treat them, this is not it. In addition, the gel doesn’t contain anything that will reduce wrinkles, but it includes a few antioxidants, such as Rosehip Oil, Calendula Extract and Vitamin E, that may help prevent new ones from forming if used regularly.
The gel comes in a white and blue bottle decorated with images of birds, butterflies and flowers. In addition to being pretty, it is also practical. The bottle is opaque and comes with a pump dispenser which ensures that the antioxidants it contains won’t be exposed to light and air and thus won’t lose their effectiveness overtime. However, the pump has a tendency to dispense a bit too much product so be careful when you use it to avoid wastage. The price can seem too steep to some people and while it is definitely not cheap, I think the gel is reasonably priced for an organic product, especially because it will last you for a long while.

Mukti Rosehip Eye Gel, which has a light texture that sinks in quickly, soothes and moisturizes the eye area and reduces puffiness. It also has antioxidant properties that may help skin look younger for longer if used regularly. However, it won’t firm skin, won’t help with dark circles and the pump dispenser tends to pour out a bit too much product. The price is not cheap, but you need so little for each application so the gel will last you for months.
