Dear, Klairs is one of my favorite Korean skin care brands as their products don’t irritate my acne-prone and combination skin. I also like the fact that Dear, Klairs uses only simple, clean and natural ingredients, which makes it the perfect brand for all skin types, especially sensitive skin.

My skin care routine is never without good eye care products. I take my eye care very seriously, so I was thrilled when Dear, Klairs launched new eye care products. Keep reading for my review of the Fundamental Eye Awakening Gel and Fundamental Nourishing Eye Butter.

Dear, Klairs Fundamental Eye Awakening Gel

What it claims to do: Revive tired-looking eyes, refresh and brighten the eye areas 

Key ingredients: Caffeine and Red Bean Extract 

My experience: I use the Fundamental Eye Awakening Gel in my morning routine since it has a light consistency and absorbs quickly into my skin. Most eye gels I’ve tried tend to leave a sticky feeling but this one doesn’t.

With caffeine in the formula, this eye gel claims to get rid of puffy eyes and dark circles while providing a refreshing sensation, and I’m happy to say that it does exactly that! I instantly look awake after applying this every morning, even before I’ve had my coffee. It’s also formulated with red bean extract, which is packed with antioxidants to protect delicate eye areas.

Despite its lightweight texture, this eye gel leaves my eye areas hydrated throughout the day. It’s also unscented so it doesn’t irritate my skin. It’s now my go-to eye gel for busy mornings!

Dear, Klairs Fundamental Nourishing Eye Butter

What it claims to do: Deeply hydrate the eye areas and improve the elasticity of the skin around the eyes

Key ingredients: Sunflower Seed Oi and Quad-Peptide Blend

My experience: I like incorporating the Fundamental Nourishing Eye Butter in my nighttime skin care routine since it provides anti-aging benefits.

Formulated with sunflower seed oil which is rich in Vitamins A and E, this eye butter vows to deeply moisturize and protect the skin around the eyes. It also contains a blend of peptides, including acetyl hexapeptide-8, copper tripeptide-1, oligopeptide-29 and oligopeptide-32, to improve the appearance of crow’s feet.

I may not have any signs of premature lines around my eye areas yet, but I believe in preventive skin care. This is a nice and gentle eye cream to start with if you’re an eye cream newbie or if you’re looking to create an anti-aging skin care routine.

The eye butter’s smooth and rich texture feels heavy at first, but I find that it’s just as fast-absorbing as the eye gel. It’s insanely hydrating and doesn’t feel greasy at all. My eyes never fail to feel soft and hydrated the next morning whenever I use this the night before!

Do I like them?

I absolutely love both the Fundamental Eye Awakening Gel and Fundamental Nourishing Eye Butter. After incorporating both of these eye care products into my daily skin care routine, my eye areas feel hydrated, plump and softer than ever. 

I definitely recommend all skin types to try both the eye gel and eye butter. Even if you have oily skin, the eye butter doesn’t feel greasy, and the eye gel is hydrating enough even for dry skin.
