Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm claims to hydrate, relieve puffiness and relieve dark circles. The ingredient list shows signs of help in the puffiness department, but consumer reviews are lacking in terms of support when it comes to relieving dark circles. The formula is free of parabens and sulfates, so if you are looking to leave those ingredients behind this product fits the bill. However, for the $65 per 0.5-ounce container price tag, consumer reviews are not as supportive as we expected.

Product Features

The first and foremost job of an eye balm is to hydrate the area around the eye without irritating the eye. Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm contains several hydrating ingredients, including shea butter and aloe, but the formula also contains alcohol, caffeine and green tea (which contains caffeine). No matter how much hydrating power a cream has the caffeine and alcohol will dry the area around the eye leaving consumer complaining about dryness.

When we reviewed consumer statements about Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm we found a long list of negative claims. Consumers report dryness, irritation, burning and no effect on dark circles. One recurring theme among many of the negative reviews was price. For the $65 consumer spent on the product they expected more – or at least hydration.

Caffeine dehydrates the area around the eye to fight puffiness associated with water retention. This dehydration has a drying effect. Alcohol also dries the skin, so put the two together and there’s no amount of moisture Algenist could add to the formula to counteract the dryness for some consumers.

The Good

  • Algenist freely lists all of the ingredients in the formula.
  • There are no parabens or sulfates in Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm.
  • Caffeine will help reduce puffiness for some users.
  • Cucumber has cooling effects.

The Bad

  • There are several reports of dryness and irritation.
  • Caffeine and alcohol have drying effects.
  • The eye balm does not maintain hydration throughout the day.
  • Does not apply well under make-up.

The Bottom Line

Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm is an expensive eye treatment that may not work as well as you’d like. Several consumers complain of dryness and irritation, likely with the addition of caffeine and alcohol. A small trial bottle is available from some online stores. It may be best to order a smaller size before spending $65 on a full-size bottle that simply does not work as claimed.
