Volition Beauty Helix AM/PM Eye Gel ($52) is an eye gel that preps for concealer and makeup while promoting healthy looking eyes with a formula rich in collagen, elastin, and glycolic acid. I actually purchased this after seeing an ad for it on Instagram. I know, I know I shouldn’t give in the silly advertisement but the video they showed was rather intriguing which left to my purchase.
I’m probably as obsessed with eye cream as I am with concealer and I have several different ones in constant rotation as I’m of the firm belief that you can make your aging eyes look years and years younger so long as you have a good hydrating eye cream. I’m not under not illusion that an expensive eye cream is going to banish my dark circles, finer lines, and puffiness. I am however, a strong believer that moisture is the key to fixing many of these issues.
Volition Beauty Helix AM/PM Eye Gel is actually very, very similiar to Dr. Denese Med MD 33 Clinical Eye Treatment Gel. Both products rely heavily on cyclopentasiloxane which is a form of silicone that acts as a primer of sorts to fill and plump finer lines. This is also gives both of these eye creams their gel-like consistency that applies, spreads, and absorbs easily which in turn makes it a very good texture for use under eyes.
Dr. Denese version has a good deal of better anti-aging ingredients compared to Volition Beauty Helix AM/PM Eye Gel and is also cheaper by around $3-$5 however, this doesn’t mean you should right off Volition Beauty’s formula since it contains a Snail Secretion which is an excellent hydrating ingredient. None the less, I think Dr. Denese’s version is worth mentioning here since her version is the superior of the two formulas.
Volition Beauty Helix AM/PM Eye Gel’s formula came as a surprise for me as the way it was promoted it seemed unique and innovative. Imagine my surprise when I realized I had already tried something almost identical to it in Dr. Denese’s formula. As a HUGE, massive, die hard fan of Dr. Denese’s excellent skincare I was quite intrigued that no one had mentioned the similarities between Voilition’s and Dr. Denese’s formula.
But I digress, let me tell you my thoughts on the Helix AM/PM Eye Gel formula.
