Thank you to OZNaturals for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own. #OZNaturals
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you will know I’m already a fan of OZNaturals products. I believe they are an exceptional value, effective, and responsibly formulated. It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed a new product from OZNaturals as the last one I shared with you was OZNaturals Tinted Sunscreen and tanning myths. I recently received one of their new products, Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel and I’ve been testing it out to share to with you.
About OZNaturals and Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel
The Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel is formulated to minimize the appearance of crow’s feet and help reduce and fade the appearance of dark circles under the eyes. It also deeply moisturizes the eye area. All the OZNaturals products use a high combination of natural ingredients and are gluten free, vegan, and cruelty free. You can feel good about using the products.
This newer formula from OZNaturals contains two leading edge ingredients: Matrixyl Synthe’6 and Haloxyl. Matrixyl Synthe’6, is a patented peptide which fills in wrinkles on both the forehead and the crow’s feet. Studies have shown consistent use for a period of two months results in visibly smoother and plumper skin. Haloxyl is a patented anti-inflammatory that helps diminish and fade the appearance of dark circles with repeated use. It is a synthetic blend and proven to increase the density of the delicate area and help the body eliminate pigment. The caffeine in the formula helps to reduce puffiness and smooth out the eye area and Apple Stem cells offer environmental protection. This product has a lot going for it. In addition to everything I have mentioned, it is also formulated with hyaluronic acid to thoroughly moisturize around the eyes. This is a great product in that addresses all the common cosmetic concerns in the eye area.
OZNaturals is a member of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics Business Network. They are also a top seller on Amazon.com and products are manufactured in the USA in a FDA approved facility.
OZNaturals Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel Ingredients
I don’t always list out all the ingredients in a product but one of the things I really like about OZNaturals is they maximize the natural ingredients in their products but also may add some synthetic ingredients (that are safe and non-toxic) to ensure the product is as effective as possible. In my opinion, a thoughtful and responsible balance is what gives you the best results. This particular eye gel is primarily formulated with natural ingredients but as I mentioned earlier, Haloxyl is a synthetic product that is specially formulated to address dark circles.

If you are ever in need of information on products used in cosmetics, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) is a non-profit organization that maintains a database with research on cosmetic products and many other consumables. You can look at the specifics about most ingredients in products or identify products that have a specific ingredient. I always find the ingredients in OZNaturals to be safe with positive ratings from EWG.
Using the product
OZNaturals indicates this product can be used in the eye area, including the eye lids and all over the face, if desired. The product should be used sparingly. You don’t need to apply a big goopy amount. The Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel should be applied after toner, serum, and moisturizer. It will be the last product applied to your skin in your skin care regimen. It is safe to use twice daily and should not cause issue for people with sensitive skin.
My thoughts on OZNaturals Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel
The eye gel offers an immediate smoothing effect on the skin. This is perfect if you have fine lines or crepey skin under your eyes as it will help to tighten and smooth the area for a more appealing makeup application. The immediate tightening effect that you may feel is not permanent and how long it lasts will vary from person to person. However, with consistent use of the product, sustained firmer skin and the reduction in the appearance of fine lines has been observed in clinical studies. I really like the instant smoothing effect because it helps my makeup appear flawless under my eyes.
Have you ever been trying to conceal dark circles and noticed you look 100 years old once you’ve finally got concealer and foundation on? This is because products will settle into fine lines making the lines appear far worse and more obvious than they really are. I over did it one day and turned my car around half way to work at the horror of my reflection in the rear view mirror. Seriously! Lesson learned on that day! Also, following the application of skin care products, a good quality concealer and foundation will give you the best results. The OZNaturals Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel really helps with the application of makeup products under the eyes because the smoothing effect prevents products from settling in the fine lines. Yay!
Effective eye creams can be very expensive but cost is not the indicator that something necessarily works or doesn’t. Believe me, I can tell you this from personal experience! I’ve wasted plenty of money on expensive luxury brands that promise miracles and don’t deliver. OZNaturals products are priced very reasonable and produce results. This eye gel retails for $18.07 USD on Amazon.com. Some retailers charge slightly more but I haven’t seen it listed for more than $25.00 USD on Amazon. Considering the Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel addresses all the major concerns in the eye area and is sold with a 30 day money back guarantee, you really can’t go wrong giving it a try. If you have questions, the company is responsive and knowledgeable about their products.
I’ve been pleased with all the OZNaturals products I’ve tried and I’d recommend their line for any skin type and age. Have you tried anything from the OZNaturals skin care line and if so, what have you used and what is your favorite product from them? I’d love to hear what to try!
