Most of us who stayed up late into the night often wakes up the next day with i) dark eye circles, ii) puffy eyes, and iii) fugly-looking tired eyes. Therefore, I am always on the lookout for products that claims to help fight the effects of late night sleeping. After browsing several shops, I eventually decided upon the Vitamin E Eyes Cube from The Body Shop. I mean, have you seen the product? It comes in a swivel-up system just like your chapstick and is so tiny it fits into anyone’s pocket or makeup pouch for instant touch up/pick me up.
Did I liked it? Well, read on to find out!
Here’s a little something from the brand:
According to the brand, The Body Shop Vitamin E Eyes Cube is/has:
- Revives and refreshes the eye area to fight signs of tiredness caused by dryness
- Enriched with Wheatgerm oil, a natural source of Vitamin E, to protect the eye area with moisture
- Cooling sensation
- Super gentle with a non-sticky texture and easy glide application
- Pocket size for easy, on-the-go touch-ups
Below is my experience with the The Body Shop Vitamin E Eyes Cube:
Roaring view for [The Body Shop Vitamin E Eyes Cube]:

|Personal take||:||I will be honest, the only reason WHY I purchase this Eyes cube is the idea that I do not need to apply an eye product with my fingers. I was a tad lazy at that point in time and I really thought this swivel-type eyes stick is a genius idea! Also, the sweet sales assistant recommended this for my puffiness, dark circles and the general look of tiredness. Considering the Vitamin E Eyes Cube cost $19.90 for a tiny 4g portion, it is definitely NOT a cheap purchase. But I still went for it anyway since I was told it helps for puffiness, dark circles and the general look of tiredness.
So after trying for several weeks, the only conclusion I came to is that this eyes cube DOES hydrate, and DOES help in making one look more ‘awake’ first thing in the morning. But it definitely falls short on the dark eye circles part. Now that I am typing this, I realized that the Sales Assistant should not have mentioned anything about dark eye circles as it is not an outright product for that. Oh well.
For me, the only saving grace of this is that it IS indeed easy to use, it IS a good cooling product to use to sort-of depuff the eye area and generally making one look a little more awake. That’s all.
|Will i recommend it?||:||No, I believe there are better, all-rounded ones out there for that price point.|
