Soo Nature Spirulina Repair Eye Cream Review:
Spirulina! That weird thing even Miranda Kerr drinks. This product is the pride and joy of Soo Nature, they advertise it as if they were the only brand in the world to use it! And, honestly, they have a good reason to do that since in Korean Skincare there’s almost nothing out there that includes spirulina.
When it comes to Korean skincare, that is. I mean, French people do brag about how good it is, so why wouldn’t this brand? After using this cream for a long while, I have to say I understand why they do it. Did you try spirulina yet?

1. At the last step of your skincare, use your finger or spatula to remove some of the product from the pot, and then using your fingers gently massage in circular motion around the eye area.
2. Make sure to cover not only the eyelid but also the under-eye area, inner corner, and any area surrounding the eye.
3. With the leftover cream don’t forget to massage your eyebrow bone and if you have any fine lines next to your mouth you can also use this cream to massage that area.
My Skin Type: Eye skin is oily, thin, tired and sensitive.
Soo Nature Spirulina Repair Eye Cream Review:
This cream I have been using since May last year. Not in a row, I had a poor encounter with an eye cream sample, then I used the IOPE eye cream from beginning to end without interruption. I needed to rely on the one eye cream I knew would work, at the time! Then I used this one for a while.
To be honest, during the summer as a day eye cream it made it difficult to apply makeup. As a night eye cream? Perfect.
Then I got an amazing promotion from Benton and got and used their fermentation eye cream. That’s my story of eye creams since I started using this one, and have been using it every day since October.
At the time I still had a small amount of the Benton eye cream left and I thought “if Benton is perfect for a day cream, and Soo Nature is perfect as a night cream… I’ll take the fall season to get the best out of both creams” and guess what? It was perfect. I mean, it is so perfect that it’s probably what I’ll do again once I finish this pot of cream.
But now for an uninterrupted review of this cream.
You can see the cream is almost over, since I use it every day, two times a day.
The cream has a light green color, and it’s an off grey color. I know it doesn’t look super attractive but at least I tested it instead of you and I can say you can trust it, it’s not some “blue cream cheese” or anything!
The scent is quite pleasant. I have no idea what it is. However I would prefer something scentless. I got used to that with the Benton eye cream, and for a brand that claims to bring stuff from nature, adding a fragrance seems to counter that… if I want a cosmetically added fragrance might as well use brands like IOPE? My point is, this scent is unnecessary and goes against what the brand stands for.
Although I understand why they add it: Koreans complain if the cosmetics don’t have a fragrance (thus the exaggeration in smell in Sulwhasoo and Peripera).
The texture is that of a thick guacamole, and it melts on the skin just as softly as one. I mean, guacamole has that feeling of butter, soft and moist. By the looks and feels of this cream I was also afraid it would oxidate into something brown and unappetizing like a real guacamole does.
But of course, that was not the case.
I can’t skip the eye cream in my skin care routine. If the facial cream is good enough I may use that instead a few times, but I can’t go along without an eye cream. And if for some reason I forget the eye cream then I can’t apply makeup that day, my eyes really feel the lack of eye cream.
You can see here before, during, and after. And that’s about the amount I apply on each eye.
The skin on the first two pictures, especially on the inner corner and bottom of my eye, is in tension. It’s appearing older than it is. On the last photo I think you can see the relief it immediately brings for my skin.
Those aren’t wrinkles (yet), they are being formed because of the tension of my muscle closing the eye for the photo. But even so you can see the effect of the cream, right? My skin is relaxed and plumped after application.
This cream is also okay to use if all my makeup after the base makeup is powder – it doesn’t get along with cream shadows at all. Because it’s really moisturizing. After applying this the cream becomes the shield of my skin and the comfort lasts the whole day. However, it absorbs completely a few minutes after applying, and leaves no trace that it was ever there.
I mean, this cream is just what the doctor ordered for aging sensitive eyes with thin skin. And that combination of using this one at night and the Benton one during the day… I must say, perfect for a skin turning the age page.
I would recommend this to everyone who doesn’t have oily skin and who likes a moisturizing type of eye cream.
Especially for the price, here it goes for 36.000 KRW for 30ml, the IOPE Eye cream goes for 55.000 KRW for 25ml. No complaints because they are both great creams, but unless my eyelashes need help again, I think I found a good and affordable eye cream.
