Packaging

Box

The packaging is same with the face cream, minimalist white box with text descriptions. Around the box, you can read the ingredients list as well as instructions on how to use it.

Jar

This jar is tiny and very portable. It is also very sturdy. I lug this around when I travel and I’m not even scared that it will break.

My Experience

Unlike the face cream, the opening of this jar is better proportioned. I can stick my ring finger inside and not get product stuck under my nails after. But of course I don’t do that, I still a spatula for this. And like the face cream, a little product goes a long way. And for such a tiny space as the under eye, I always scoop more than what is needed. I just use the excess on my husband because I hate wasting product.

Inside the jar

Let me be honest right off the bat and say that I’m underwhelmed by this. I purchased this together with the face cream thinking that it would be a good tandem. And yes, they’re both very hydrating, and yes, they both layer really well under makeup. But, that’s just it.

I have very dry under eyes and my concealers tend to crease a lot. I’ve noticed that when I started using this that they tend to crease less. But then again, I’ve also been using a different concealer and I’ve been setting my under eye area with different products. I’m not sure if my technique or the products I used improved. I think it’s an overall thing that I can’t say if this eye cream alone made it possible.

I think it’s more of a it’s not you, it’s me kind of situation. I thought what I wanted in an eye cream is the same with I wanted in a face moisturizer. This is my first eye cream and it’s proven to be a very expensive mistake trial After using this for a while, I realized that I needed something can depuff and brighten as I have very dark, puffy under eyes. And this product is just not it. It’s more of my mistake than the product itself, so boo me.

Also, this has a 6 month period after opening. I don’t really follow the PAO for most makeup, but this is skincare and I’d rather be more cautious about this. I put it on my face everyday twice day but I still haven’t dented it a bit. I feel like at the end of the 6 months period, I still wouldn’t have used half of it. And that’s 50% of a product and almost 1.5k gone. I’m probably better off finding a more wallet-friendly alternative.

Verdict

  • It keeps my under eye hydrated all day.

  • A little product goes a long way.
NEUTRAL

Will I repurchase?

Sadly, no. It’s a good moisturizer, but it’s just not for what I need. My wallet can’t afford to buy two jars of this every year.

Will I continue using this?

Yes, because I hate wasting perfectly acceptable products.

6.6/10
