ABOUT THIS BRANDFormer professional makeup artist, beauty expert and Founder of SkinOwl, Annie Tevelin, struggled with acne and skin imbalances until she went on vacation to Vietnam and discovered firsthand the remarkable benefits of mangosteen. Known by locals as the ‘queen of the fruits’, mangosteen is eaten and applied directly to the skin in indigenous beauty rituals. Skin-transformed and ingredient-enlightened, Annie returned home to Los Angeles and enrolled in a cosmetic chemistry program to pursue her quest to develop natural skincare that would achieve the results she experienced abroad. At SkinOwl, careful ingredient sourcing and purity is paramount. Annie is committed to forming relationships with small cooperatives in Morocco, Africa and Southeast Asia that support women and families through organic farming. SkinOwl represents a return to simplicity, ritual and ethical transparency with innovative ingredient combinations in self-care beauty for the skin and body.
This dries out my undereye area, there is a bit of firming but the dryness offsets this and makes it terrible to use concealer over. So I have to choose between having eye bags and no dark circles or having no eye puffiness and dark circles.
Better on younger skin
This is such a lovely gel. It feels amazing going on and is even better when pulled directly from the fridge. It does tighten up the eye area, so for me with parched skin, it caused some puckering and wasn't quite moisturizing enough.
I love this in the morning to depuff and perk up my eye area before applying makeup, it feels firming and cooling. I would definitely repurchase this lovely product A+.
