[Review] Missha Inner Moist Vitalize Eye Cream


I use this eye cream about 3-4 times a week at night after washing my face. other nights i do not use eye cream… as i dont feel that i need to use so much at this time, and i’m still pretty new to this eye cream thing.

Featuring my night eye cream: MISSHA Near SKIN Inner moist collection

at my age i feel the type of eye cream i need would be the moisturizing type, so upon doing some read ups decided on this and asked LJ to help me buy from korea, > 50% cheaper there 🙂

i hope you are reading every word in there. sounds pretty cool right!

i like the part about 6-free: alochol-free, paraben-free, mineral oil-free, benzophenon-free, tricosan-free, GMO-free

Near Skin Inner Moist series focuses on dehydration, the main reason of skin troubles such as aging, losing elasticity and troubles.

containing 17 Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMF) such Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, Ceramid, Lecithin, PGA, Cholesterol and 11 Essential Amino Acids, it workds each skin layers and relives inner and outer dryness.

loving the science behind this: im a sucker for this 🙂

here’s the product swatch:

light viscous texture.

i really like the moisturizing properties of this eye cream. i am confident that my eyes are moisturized for > 6 hours each time i used this.

eyes are def less tired looking the next day.

i dont really feel i need an eye cream badly now so all im looking for is something in my maintenance regime to ensure the skin stays healthy and wrinkle free!!

Recommended? Yes!

Review: My Beauty Diary Intensive double Vitamin C Eye Masks


Another eye care review this week, this one is from the famous “My Beauty Diary” brand, im sure you girls are very familiar with its facial masks, and now they have eye masks!!
i bought this box in Taiwan last Nov. I have not seen in SG yet though.. can ask your friends gg taiwan to buy for you 🙂

here’s the product description:

Functions: lighten dark eye circles, reduce fine lines.

to be placed after toner for 10-15 min, no need to rinse! after removing the masks, massage the essence into the skin for absorbtion. for best results use it for a week consecutively.

you know, i was down to last 2 pieces when i read the ‘for best results use it for a week consecutively.’ line 😦
so i guess mine is not the best results.

i like how this eye masks also has fabric for the top eyelid, instead of only the area below the eye. its really quite interesting.

i feel like some superhero in mask… and also it does not sting the eyes or anything.

after 20-30 min (i usually put longer than instructed), i removed to masks and use my fingers to gently dab the rest of the essence into the skin.
the skin feels moist and firm, and the next morning, the area under my eyes are not dark, i feel like there is a wee bit of diff! imagine if i used it for 1 week everyday man.

here’s the before and after after 2 applications.

fine lines reduced!

honestly, i cant say there is much visible diff, as i’ve only done this after 2 masks, and i’ve no more masks 😦
i was pretty pleased with the results the next day cos after a good sleep the eye area always look more refreshed. and i DID take a photo the next morning using internal camera (which always hides the details)

internal camera. looks almost perfect right?

haha. anyway i would still recommend this cos i feel the undereye area is brighter and moist the next morning, and i want to buy 1 more box to try it consecutively every night ‘for best results’ . (what a sucker for eye care).

[Review] The Face Shop Raspberry Roots Depuffing Eye Gel


you know, this is the 3rd post on The Face Shop Raspberry Roots series from me. First is the sleeping mask review, then the collagen eye patch review.

The face shop must be very proud of me man!! its my first time owning more than 1 pdt from the same series. anw its really a coincidence that i have all 3, not that i went out to buy all 3 together.
the eye patch is a gift from a friend from xmas last year. and this eye gel was from my HK trip last year May, same as the sleeping mask

this is it!

this is the first eye gel i buoght in my entire life, cos i know i have v bad dark circles and eye bags.
i actually bought it without knowing its to reduce puffiness, thinking its to brighten the undereye area. but hey, every type of eye gel is designed to benefit right?

let me show u the texture and colour..

can see? this is a white colour light non greasy gel which is almost odourless, i cant really smell anything actually.

i use this every morning for the past 5 months, mronings cos i feel like i always look bloated in the morning, especially on my face cos of water retention. and hope this can help.

not too bad, i feel this also helps to moisturize the under eye area, and the non greasy texture makes it very light to the skin, which i prefer.
in terms of dark circles and fine lines, im afraid thsi cant help – which it is not designed to as well.

i would recommend this if your eye bags are always bothering you, but dont expect miracles from this to reduce lines + perform other functions.

[Review] The Face Shop Raspberry Roots Collagen Eye Patch


i received this eye patch from a dear friend for Xmas last year.. and used it yesterday night. lets see the journey!

This is a gel like eye patch, formulated with Himalayan Raspberry Roots and qua collagen to optimize elasticity. if you read my review on the raspberry sleeping mask , the key ingredient is the Raspberry roots, whcih promises to lift the skin for a taut look.

dont think you can see the gel from here, but there is a layer of ‘gauze’ you can see under the patch, which i guess is to hold the gel together, i place the side of the gauze away from my skin, so that my skin is in complete contact with the gel and not the gauze. hope this is correct!!

i love how cooling this feels as i refrigerated the masks since i had it. the gel is really light and does not sting my eye even though i place it so near my eye.
throughout the next 30-40 min, i can feel the patch getting thinner!!! is it evaporate? absorbed?

went to sleep straighter after and woke up the next morning for inspection…

(ah yes, close up of my skin you can see all my imperfections – please focus on the eye now)
i would say the skin under my eye feels really soft and moisturized. it is more tight as i usually see more fine lines than this.

not bad reallY!! i would certainly use it again for and recommend it for tired and droppy skin under eyes.
