SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream Review:
I’ve never thought that using an eye cream is crucial before. For me, it’s just a secondary, even tertiary needs. I personally thought that having enough sleep is the best cure for tired, puffy eyes with dark circles. It’s the same with eye wrinkles – no one could stop your aging skin, including the usage of eye creams. However, those ‘immature’ thoughts were when I still had no problems with my around-eyes skin. I’ve always had dark circles due to sleeping habits since high school era, so it didn’t bother me. But approximately earlier this year, I found some fine eye wrinkles and I panicked! I was only mid 20s and I’m having wrinkles? Uh, a big no!
I realized and decided that I should treat my around-eye skin better. Of course I should repair my sleeping habits, but I guess using outside treatment is gonna help too. Then, I decided to try SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream.
Why SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream out of many eye creams? First, I’ve tried the SECRET KEY Starting Treatment line before (Starting Treatment Essence and Starting Treatment Cream) and both of them worked very well on me. I believe their galactomyces content is somehow works compatible with my skin.
This eye cream contains yeast fermentation filtrate that works gently on the tired and sensitive eyes, and helps to revitalize the natural rhythm of the skin to make it bright and firm.

SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream Review:
SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream has a very simple, minimalist packaging; a small tube as a primary packaging and a box as a secondary one. Both of them are dominated by white color with some silver, black, or red ink for the typing.
The box itself contains so much information on each side, however only directions, cautions, and ingredients are translated in English. As for the product claim and contents promotion, I had to translate them by myself.
Same with the tube packaging, where it only loads information about hangul version of product claim and contents promotion. This product doesn’t print the expiry date as it embossed the date of manufacture of the top part of the tube. Usually Korean skincare products are still guaranteed until 2 – 3 years since its manufacture date as long as you don’t open the lids or coverings, depends on the products’ types and contents.
This tube has a fit size of output hole, maybe due to the condensed and viscous texture of the product so that I could control the amount of product comes out easily. Yes, this eye cream has a very thick texture that will stick sweetly on your skin without streaming down it even if you overturn your hand.
Maybe this is related to the ‘cream’ type of product name, but I found this eye cream is thicker than other eye-care products like Laneige Eye Sleeping Mask or Simple Age Resisting Eye Cream. This product has a white color, and it absorbs quite fast.
I just realized the effect of this Eye Cream usage a couple weeks ago, although I have used it for eight months now. I could clearly see the differences especially on the fine wrinkles under my eyes. I used to have eye bags that leaves lines everytime I squint my eyes, but I hardly find the lines anymore recently. Wow!
Doesn’t mean that they’re gone forever, since I could still see the lines if I pay close attention in front of the mirror, but they are somehow getting more vague than before. As for the eye bags, I don’t think this product has any impact on it.
Of course using an eye cream only isn’t enough; I had better sleeping habits recently, but I guess minimizing the wrinkles is really possible to do. One more factor, it might because I still around mid-20s so that my eye wrinkles weren’t permanent yet.
SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream claimed and promoted its galactomyces contents, while galactomyces itself is known to be a genus of fungi family and usually added to skincare products as galactomyces ferment filtrate (GFF). It’s a result of fermented products, and widely known for moisturizing, brightening, and increasing elasticity.
I assume this content really works as it claims, since SECRET KEY Staring Treatment lines are all very good! Fyi, I use this eye cream twice a day after washing my face, but before using a lot of skincare products to prevent too many layers. And since the texture is quite heavy, a little of the product really goes a long way.
Overall, I could say that this eye cream satisfies me. The usage of Secret Key Eye Cream plus improvement in sleeping habits really slow down wrinkles’ appearance, although it doesn’t work with my eyebags.
In my personal opinion, this eye cream could be used by anyone. For anyone who has a problem with eyebags, do try this products too! The galactomyces content claims to brighten the skin too, although I didn’t feel the difference.
According to cosdna analysis, there are no harmful ingredients since the highest safety indicator shows only triethanolamine has a 5 point while it works as a pH adjusters. Thus, this product contains no alcohol and paraben, but the ingredients might still bother an anti-fragrance.
