[REVIEW] Etude House Red Energy Tension Up Intense Eye Balm

Etude House Red Energy Tension Up Intense Eye Balm Review

Etude House Red Energy Tension Up Intense Eye Balm Review:

The eye area is so delicate and for a long time I went without an eye cream, and maybe because of that my undereye area is so dry. I keep looking for new eye creams because they always seem to irritate my eyes or aren’t moisturizing enough. I had noticed this Etude House one a while ago, but it took me a while to decide to try it out. Even though I’m not a fan of red, something about “red energy” just appealed to me, so I decided to give it a go.

I was hopeful that for once I might have found a great eye cream, after all this one contains niacinamide (good for brightening skin), lots of fruit extracts and shea butter. I hoped that it would have enough occlusive ingredients to stop the skin around my eyes from drying out. This eye cream is meant to be good for wrinkles too, and my undereye area has a few fine lines because I’m guilty of rubbing my eyes (or I used to a lot). Shall we see if this eye cream worked better than the previous ones I’ve tried?

[REVIEW] Etude House Collagen Eye Patch

Etude House Collagen Eye Patch Review

Etude House Collagen Eye Patch Review:

Lately, I started to give more attention to my under eyes area. Even I do not have serious problem on my under eyes area, but I think it is better to give it extra treatment since I am, of course, getting older from day to day. Considering that fact, I start looking for good products to tighten skin around eyes. My lack of experience for eye patch products makes me a bit confused to choose which product I should try since there are a lot of brands out there. So, I started with the most popular K-brand, Etude House.

I was interested with the collagen essence in this eye patch. I love collagen in my skincare. Collagen makes my skin moist and keeps its elasticity for youthful look. Besides, another interesting content from the ingredients list is Retinol which works as an anti-aging active. Therefore, I expected this product would give me a good result. Moreover, Etude House’s products usually work nicely on my skin. This is my third pack of Etude House Collagen Eye Patch and I am going to tell you how this product works on my skin.

[REVIEW] Soo Nature Spirulina Repair Eye Cream

Soo Nature Spirulina Repair Eye Cream Review

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?

[REVIEW] The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG Review

The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG Review:

I’ve had permanent dark circles under my eyes ever since I can remember. Even in older photos I find from when I was 2 years old, you can still see the circles. It mostly happens because of my bone structure but my skin also has some issues, otherwise, it would’ve been pretty pointless to try anything to reduce dark circles.

I’ve tried multiple vitamins and stuff but I didn’t manage to get rid of the problem. When I first discovered The Ordinary, I just browsed on their website and randomly found this. I had already heard of the difference caffeine solution can make to dark circles and the antioxidant power of EGCG so I found it promising.

[REVIEW] Purebess Galactomyces 80 Eye Cream

Purebess Galactomyces 80 Eye Cream Review

Purebess Galactomyces 80 Eye Cream Review:

A lot of people see an eye cream as something that is unnecessary, and I used to think that way in the past as well. However, when I started to use a face cream that I couldn’t use around my eyes I realized that an eye cream was essential. Also the skin around the eyes is very delicate and thin, and so I started to think that applying a normal face cream might be too heavy or irritating to the eyes. Which is why I started to look into different eye creams and I found this Purebess eye cream.

I had never heard of the Purebess brand before and since it had some good reviews I decided that I needed to try a new brand and a new product. The fact that it contains galactomyces which is a ferment, also attracted me to this eye cream. Galactomyces is meant to be good for wrinkles and fine lines which makes it sound excellent for an eye cream!

[REVIEW] Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Wrinkle Up Spot

Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Wrinkle Up Spot Review

Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Wrinkle Up Spot Review:

When I was in Seoul during the summer, I must have spent all my life savings in Myeongdong on K-beauty products (kidding….or am I?). I decided to venture outside my comfort zone and try some brands that I normally would not have even thought of purchasing. Nature Republic was one of those brands, mainly because they were everywhere and also because the salesperson was handing out sample sheet masks outside the store….I am a major sucker for freebies. I decided to venture outside my comfort zone and try some brands that I normally would not have even thought of purchasing.

One of their bestsellers was the Ginseng Royal Silk range. I bought a few products from that range but the one I started using first was the Wrinkle Up Spot. The saleslady told me that this product was good for removing wrinkles especially under the eyes and smile lines around the mouth. The main ingredient in this product is gold (99%) which promotes blood circulation and has a brightening effect. Perfect for dark circles! This product also contains ginseng for revitalization of the skin, silk compounds for cell regeneration and royal jelly which again, has brightening properties as well as helps to keep the skin firm and supple. “Sold!” – I thought to myself. Give me a tube of that golden ginseng goodness!

[REVIEW] Benton Fermentation Eye Cream

Benton Fermentation Eye Cream Review

Benton Fermentation Eye Cream Review:

I first tried this product in samples. Benton is always very generous with the samples, so after receiving my new member sample kit, the 2 products they sent me to review, and the 2 other packages I received by purchasing them myself I had somewhere between 20 and 24 samples of this cream. I don’t know how much product is in each sample, but each sample is enough for me to use 4 times! So I tried it a lot, and then I purchased it.

I wasn’t going to purchase it, honestly, because I can just keep receiving the samples, but my previous eye cream finished and after the incident I had where my eyelashes fell out I didn’t want to risk something new. And let’s face it, Benton is natural, generally good, and is very affordable! So I bought two packs of this, and these are my thoughts after almost finishing the first one!

TonyMoly Panda’s Dream Eye Patch Review

TonyMoly Panda’s Dream Eye Patch Review:

Working in front of computer for hours makes my eyes getting tired easier. At first, I didn’t care about that problem and thought that a good sleep is the best solution to refresh my tired eyes. So I just go straight with my daily activities without worry. Unlucky me, lately I got insomnia more than before (I guess it is an effect from watching K-Drama too much, LOL). Well, I think you could guess what happen then. Yes, I found that my under eyes look crazily dull and dark circle appeared around there.

I was too lazy to browse reviews on internet, so when I accidentally saw Tonymoly Panda’s Dream Eye Patch on online store, I bought it. I just thought that this eye patch is kinda cute because of the panda’s eye shape. Moreover, the ingredients of Bamboo extract and Niacinamide is quite high. I heard that those ingredients are good to brighten up and moisturize skin. Since this is my very first eye patch product, I was excited to try it on. And here is the result!

Etude House Black Hydrogel Eye Patch Review:

I was an hour early to my class one night so I decided to lurk Korean Beauty Boutiques to kill time. I stopped by at Etude House to swatch cushions but I was drawn to mask section and ended up buying this Etude House Black Hydrogel Eye Patch. Since I have tried that SNP Heating Mask, I thought maybe I should give my eyes a treat once in a while. Not to mention, I’ve always wanted to try hydrogel eye patch but I’m afraid to get stuck with a tub-full of unwanted patches so I’m glad to have spotted this product!
