Have you ever noticed that aging is usually revealed first on the eye part? At young ages, some have already those visible crow's feet from which they get from smiling brightly, the wrinkly eye lids from the frequent pulling they get during make up routines, the puffy eye bags from late night instances or drama queen moments. Well, I share these dilemma too. So, I decided to include an eye cream into my skin care regimen.I have browsed a lot and I found that eye creams are very very costly indeed. Well, a working mom like me who have other priorities needs an affordable but great options to choose from. And since, I am a Korean cosmetics aficionado, I initially checked the brands I am familiar and in love with. FYI, Korean brands offer very affordable make ups and skin care lines. Hence, to cut the chase I settled for Etude House Eye's Cream in Vanilla Moist.
Eye cream stick with moisturizing, brightening, and anti-wrinkle formula to promote youthful skin around the eyes (source: box). This stick is also formulated with whitening properties and cooling effects to keep the eyes looking awake and energized.
See list of ingredients and instructions below for your reference:
- Vanilla Moist Eyes
- Mint Cooling Eyes
Net Weight 6.5 g (0.22 oz.)
Availability: all Etude House branches and counters
Instructions on how to use (I use this at night time only. So, here's my before-bedtime routine):
- remove make up with cleansing oil
- clean face with favorite wash / scrub
- tone with favorite toner of course (let skin absorb it)
- emulsify or moisturize (let skin absorb it)
- apply eye cream
See diagram below on how to apply / stroke the eye's cream stick. Please just concentrate on the illustration coz the written instruction is in Hangeul.
Etude House certainly has one of the most interesting product names...Eye's Cream Stick hihihi in Vanilla...oh ha? Sounds more like a dessert to me =).Packaging wise, again its cuteness loaded. It comes in a twist-it-up type sturdy plastic that is very very handy. Apart from the cover, it also has a separate cap to protect the balm inside. Unfortunately, I dropped and lost it. It might have rolled under my cabinet.
Another picture of the box in Korean =).
Frozen Blossoms' experience:
Lastly, this picture was taken during the last days of October, after around two months of using the Etude House Eye's Cream. The fine lines on my upper lid had somewhat diminished right? The lower lid seemed to have been puffy again but I find it normal lookin'... just the normal fats I guess. The line may have not totally disappeared but it did fade a bit.
Though results were gradual and not drastic, I can say that this is no ordinary eye cream for it has improved my eye skin condition plus the relaxing feeling from the cooling sensation is a bonus. This eye cream is recommended to ladies and women with mild traces of aging only.
That's it ladies. Good morning!!!
