However, since this is a review post I suppose that I should give a brief description of the product in order to pique your interest in reading more. I had big dreams for this eye cream, none of which were fulfilled. That happens sometimes though. More after the jump!
Where to buy:
testerkorea.com $15.20Description: A rich and nutrition packed eye cream formulated with arbutin and salmon roe extracts that feed and nurture the delicate eye zone for refreshed and vibrant looking eyes. Haloxyl strengthens skin and decreases hemoglobin production to prevent the formation of dark circles under the eyes.
~ brighten/lighten under eye circles
~ feed and nurture eye zone
~ strengthen/firm under eye skin
Scent: I am really bad with scents, but I think that this is quite cucumber-y? Whatever it is, it smells really good. It is heavily scented however, so watch out if you're sensitive to smells. This is probably this most heavily scented product I've used, as I can smell this for awhile after applying. Since it is a good scent, I don't mind it.
You can't see that its shiny in this picture, but it is! There's also a slight white cast.
Anyway, I used this every night for 6 weeks before giving up. It did nothing for my dark circles BUT it did brighten up the area overall... this was not helpful in the slightest, since my dark circles stayed the same color but the rest of the area was brighter. In fact, it looked kind of silly, so I stopped before it got any more noticeable haha.
Unfortunately this wasn't that great for moisturizing either. I have a couple of lines under my eye naturally, just creases that have always been that way. When I'm dehydrated or that area is dry, I get a third one. I noticed that my third crease was more noticeable than usual while I was using this, despite continuing to drink plenty of water. I can't fault this cream too much for not helping my dark circles, but I would have atleast hoped it was decent for moisturizing. A lot of other people have had good results with this cream though, so unless you have the kind of circles that I do, it might not hurt to try it!
Conclusion: Final Score: 2/5 (for me!)
- smells amazing
- cute packaging
- good price
- a little goes a long way
- doesn't do anything for my under-eye circles (but thats because I have a certain kind)
- isn't that great for moisturizing
- non-hygienic packaging
