Product Review: Pevonia Botanica Ligne Yeux Évolutive Eye Gel

I am at the age where I cannot go past a good eye cream to try to slow down the signs of ageing – and well, having a five month old baby, and no longer getting my required beauty sleep, a product that helps minimise the look of tiredness and dark circles under the eyes, doesn’t go astray. Here are my thoughts on the *Pevonia Botanica Ligne Yeux Évolutive Eye Gel;

What They Say:
"Goodbye puffy eyes! Microemulsified C Évolutive Eye Gel with high-tech time-release sphérulites delivers decongesting benefits to your delicate eye zone throughout the day. Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, and Ginkgo Biloba, combine to reduce dark circles and puffiness. Reveal alluring eyes with a visibly refreshed and rejuvenated eye contour."

RRP: $124.50 (30ml) – Available from Pevonia Botanica

What I Say:
I recently tried the Skincare Solution Pack for Combinationskin from Pevonia Botanica, and was so amazed by the results in a very short time, so I was looking forward to trying the Pevonia Botanica Ligne Yeux Évolutive Eye Gel as well.

The Ligne Yeux Évolutive Eye Gel claims to reduce puffiness and dark circles, smooth wrinkles, and help preserve skin elasticity, and be refreshing to reveal a rejuvenated eye contour.

It contains among others Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, Squalane Oil, Ginkgo Biloba, Chamomile and Calendula, and it is recommended for use in the morning, and at night ideally under the Évolutive Eye Cream.
I have sensitive eyes, that easily water, so it is a requirement for me that any products that I use around my eye area are very gentle, and I was pleased to discover that I had no issues what so ever with the eye gel.

It has a lovely and light texture, which absorbs instantly into the skin, and doesn’t leave behind a stick or greasy film around the eye area, and hence it works perfectly under makeup. And as promised, the gel has a soothing and refreshing feeling, more than likely due to containing chamomile and ginkgo biloba.

After having used the eye gel or over a month, I am absolutely loving it, and the refreshing feeling when I get up in the morning still feeling tired – which sadly I do most mornings with a 5 month old baby.


My area is looks and feels thoroughly hydrated, yet without feeling it is drowning from too much moisture. My skin around the eye area seems refreshed and plump and fine lines seem to have minimised a little. As for the dark circles, unfortunately they are still there, but I also did not expect these do disappear, as regardless of the quality of an eye cream, nothing can correct the damage of sleep deprivation when you have a little baby!

The eye gel has a gentle fresh floral scent, and comes in a small simple white squeeze tube with a pointy tip, which makes it easy to get just the amount of gel you need without wastage – just be careful not to squeeze the tube too hard or you will push out more gel than you need. The tube contains a whopping 30ml, and as it gel is so concentrated, and just a tiny bit covers the eye area so well, so it will last you forever and ever.


At $124.50 this is quite expensive, probably one of the most expensive eye creams that I have ever tried – but it is then important to remember that it comes in a huge 30ml tube, which is double the size of most other eye creams. In saying that, I think I would prefer if it came in a tube half the size at half the price, so the initial outlay wouldn’t be so high, and price wise it would be comparable to other quality eye creams on the market.

What I Like:
  • It is gentle around my sensitive eyes area
  • Perfect to use under makeup
  • Absorbs instantly and has a nice refreshing feeling
  • Thoroughly moisturises eye area, and fine lines seem to be reduced
  • And nice gentle floral scent

What I Don’t Like:
  • The eye gel is a little pricey, and I would much prefer if it came in a tube half the size, which would make the price reasonable
  • You need to be careful not to squeeze the tube too hard or you will push out more gel than needed

Overall, Pevonia Botanica has impressed me again. This is such a lovely eye gel, and I love how refreshing it feels on my eye area, and how it in such a short time has made a difference to the appearance of fine lines. You cannot blame the eye gel for not resulting in a reduction of the dark circles caused by a continuous lack of sleep.  I will enjoy using the rest of this gel, and definitely consider purchasing this again along with other products from Pevonia Botanica.

Have you ever tried any products from Pevonia Botanica? Which eye cream is your favourite? And what do you look for in an eye cream?



  1. It is a little pricey, but if it does the job... I'm so sick of all those "magic" eye creams that don't do anything good for my eyes at all. Maybe I should check this one out!
    Thanks :)!


    1. I agree, there's a lot of 'magic' in all the advertising campaigns, but think we have to realise that not even the best cream can undo years of damage or lack of sleep.

  2. Sounds like a lovely cream. Well the whole skin line sounds nice actually. I only wonder if it would rid dark circles in someone like me where they are allergy related not sleep related.


    1. If is allergy caused by say hay fever, then I doubt you'd find anything that would work - otherwise it would be a matter of finding a gentle cream that doesn't irritate your eye area.
