The Body Shop Aloe Eye Defense Review

Hi beauties,

Today I’m sharing my review of Aloe Eye Defense from The Body Shop. I find The Body Shop products can be hit or miss. They are often wayyy too fragranced and their skincare can be expensive. However, they often have promotions- so often that I rarely pay full price for their products, and some cult items are great ( I love the Dry Body Oil and bars of soap for instance).


I wasn’t thrilled with my 1000 Roses Eye Gel from Andalou Naturals as it gave me a slight burning feeling, so I wanted to try something else. This eye cream-gel is formulated with prebiotics, community trade aloe, buckwheat and oat bran extract. It costs $20CAN but is currently on sale for $12 online.


-Half a pump is enough for both eyes

-Doesn’t make my eyes sting, burn or feel tight

-Absorbs nicely

-Scent free, paraben free, cruelty free

-The formula is a bit runny so pressing the pump fully can be messy


I’m glad I tried this product.  I really didn’t want to shell out a lot of money on an eye cream and this works perfectly for me. It absorbs nicely but not so slow that I have to wait ages to apply the rest of my makeup. The formula is a tad more like an “aloe milk” than a gel-cream as it can be a bit runny, but once you get used to the pump it isn’t an issue. My skin can be sensitive and I get no irritation whatsoever from this product. Overall a great find!

    1. I have actually but I hated it!! It burned my skin and reeked of alcohol 🙁 I was hopeful since it was a gel formula but I have it to my boyfriend. He likes it though at least! Lol

      1. Oh, that’s a shame 😯 Maybe you put it too close to your eyes. I recently found that you shouldn’t put eye creams right under eyes. Eye cream should trace the bone structure around the eye. That was quite a surprise for me.
        Either way, I’m sorry you hated it, and I’m glad you found an alternative 😊
