OZNaturals Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel

When it comes to eye treatments, texture is the key differentiating factor.

Some call themselves cozy creams, cocooning your skin in a layer of moisture. Others call themselves slick serums, delivering a silky sleeve of soft dew.

And then there are the gels, the cool, crisp, tightening, firming, can-you-believe-this-formula eye gels that are the combo/oily-skinned girls’ dream.

New-to-me brand OZNaturals has this gel, and it’s called Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel.

OZNaturals Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel

{OZNaturals sent me a sample of its OZNaturals Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel for this sponsored post. It costs $18.07 for a 0.5-ounce pump bottle.}

Designed by an aesthetician with goals of delivering light moisture, zapping puffiness and diminishing darkness, OZNaturals Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel is a product I probably would have passed right on by because of its hard-to-decipher ingredients list.

Upon closer inspection, I found that the marriage of peptides and smart extracts makes for a clean beauty product that has low health hazards (the ingredients score “4” or below on the EWG Skin Deep Database) and high efficacy.

This product isn’t for so-called “purists,” but for those who desire clean products formulated with peptides.

This results in dense gel eye formula that tightens and absorbs quickly, leaving the skin ready for any additional targeted creams or a final layer of all-over skin treatments.

Here’s the full ingredients list:

Water (Aqua), Acrylates Copolymer, Glycerin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Caffeine, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Palmitoyl Tripeptide- 1, Malus Domestica Fruit Cell Culture Extract, Urea, Sodium Hyaluronate, Chrysin, Xanthan Gum, Maltodextrin, N-Hydroxysuccinimide, Hydroxypropyl Cyclodextrin, Steareth-20, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Citric Acid, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Hydroxide

You only need half a pump of the gel to cover both eyes. Personally, I like to use OZNaturals Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel after my skin serum, finishing off with a light layer of hydration at night.

For daytime use, this gel is perfect under makeup, creating a canvas for foundation and leaving zero grease (which can lead to makeup creasing). This is especially nice for those of us who are not morning people and have very little patience for the product-drying game.

Hint: That’s me.

Depending on your skin type or current climate (or patience level), OZNaturals Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel may be your only layer or your base layer eye treatment:

  • If you’re going for nighttime dark circle treatment in cooler weather, you can easily apply a layer of gel and top it off with a light oil or cream.
  • If it’s daytime and you’re trying to tighten and lift, OZNaturals Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel may be all you need.

A little experimentation is fun, and I’ve found that many of the gel-based products in my skincare collection come in and out of rotation based on weather and specific skin needs.

OZNaturals Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel is one to call on if you’re dealing with puffiness (hi, caffeine!) or need a little tightening (thanks, Matrixyl Synthe’6). The formula also includes tried-and-true hyaluronic acid for moisture — you know your tired undereyes need it!

A few topline things to consider:

  • If you’re extremely oily, you might really love this eye gel, especially in hot/humid weather.
  • If you’re dry, it’s probably not a perfect fit, as you may not find it hydrating enough.

Overall, OZNaturals Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel is an interesting addition to the clean beauty scene. The pricepoint is extremely accessible, as is the distribution method — Amazon.

I think we’re on the brink of the next phase of cleaner beauty, and that phase is going to be all about advanced ingredients and a variety of textures.

OZNaturals seems to get it, and its eye treatment is worth a try for less than $20 — especially for a gel in a world of creams, oils and serums.

What do you look for in an eye treatment? What textures do you prefer during daytime? At night? Ever heard of OZNaturals? Tell me in the comments!

    conditioned and driven to believe that the products we see on television and
    subsequently, buy in the stores, deliver the claims on the bottles. We have to
    start examining the current market products, reading the labels of what
    comprised the ingredients, names starting with Meth/Ethy/Hydro, etc., it’s
    clear, if you cannot pronounce the names of chemicals on the bottle, how can
    you be sure of what you are getting in the product or their “effects,
    ” mostly fillers and alcohol with a whiff of active ingredients. My
    company, TEA SEA SCENTS is devoted to healing the largest
    organ on your body, your SKIN! All the
    products are exclusively made in-house and originated by the
