The Tammy Fender Firming Eye Gel ($72) is an organic herbal blend complex containing a multitude of hydrating botanicals, herbal extracts and omega 3 & 6 nutrients targeted to restore immediate hydration, firming and protecting the delicate eye area. The concentrated blend of elder, chamomile, rose hip seed, borage, green myrtle and nettle is rapidly absorbed by the skin, nourishing and toning tissue while increasing elasticity and renewing softness. Herbs like elder flower and chamomile are mostly anti-inflammatory, cooling and soothing. Additionally, elder and green myrtle are very hydrating. Eyebright is also anti-inflammatory and astringent as well as hydrating, and it promotes circulation and stimulates the lymph system. All of these qualities work to smooth and tighten the delicate eye area.
I used the Firming Eye Gel with Elder Flower & Green Myrtle Formula No. E-53G for about 30 days. It came in a half-ounce container with an air pump. Unfortunately, the air pump was defective and did not work. I had to open the bottle every time to scoop out a small amount to apply to my eyes. I went online and found other reviews that attested to the same experience. The application of the gel was a lovely experience. It had a mild herbal aroma and a soothing cooling feel and absorbed immediately. The bottle only lasted 30 days, and in those 30 days, the only result I noticed was a smoothing of the skin under the eye. I am over 60, so wrinkles and crinkles are noticeable, and I did not see much of an effect on those annoyances. Nor did I see any lightening or brightening of the under-eye area. As I have stated in my other reviews, I do believe that some products take longer than 30 days to see the claimed results. The absorption and retention of the components may need time to build up in the tissue.
The brand itself is rather pricey. I don’t believe I would purchase this a second time. And if I had purchased this with a defective pump, I would have certainly returned it immediately. I feel it’s too pricey for the minimal effects that I received and the quality of the container. While I love the idea of the use of botanicals that are vibrationally exceptional, I unfortunately cannot recommend this product.
