[Review] Isomer’s Redensify Eye Cream

March 27, 2014

125788a1Hi everyone! Today I’ll be reviewing the Isomer’s Redensify Eye Cream. Let’s just say I ordered this last summer after doing a bunch of online searching for a good product to help volumize the undereye area. My eyes are kind of deep-set, and depending on how tired I am, they can look bad =( I wanted an eye cream that would hydrate but also plump up that area. I don’t get eye bags; I basically have the opposite problem!

Anyway, I read online that some people saw success with this product, but I also saw some mixed reviews. And the cream itself was about $50! I don’t normally pay that much for makeup/skincare related products unless I am convinced it will be amazing! But I decided to give it a try. They had a package deal where you could get the full-sized face cream and full-sized eye cream (I almost wrote “ice cream” …..) for $55. That’s a great deal, so my mom paid half and kept the face cream so I could have the eye cream.

I’ve been using it since I got it last July, pretty much every morning. I have a different cream I use at night. Unfortunately, I don’t think this product works very well. I do think it hydrates the area, and it’s a fairly thin cream, which makes it good for day-time application in my opinion. However, I didn’t really notice a change in my eyes. I think how my eyes look really just depend on how much sleep I get and how much water I’m drinking. I don’t think the cream made any difference =(

I plan on using it up, and then I’ll be switching to a different day-time eye cream (or just revert back to using just a night eye cream). If I see any changes when I stop using it, I’ll be sure to write an updated post. But I don’t think it made any change in my eyes. I’m hoping whatever creams I use next will help the undereye area out more. =)

I don’t have too much to say about it, because the only pros I can think of are that it hydrates and it’s a light cream. Other than that, I don’t think it’s worth $50 on its own, or even worth the half-price of the package deal. I’m nervous about what will happen when I stop using it, haha. Maybe there was a slight improvement and I won’t notice it until I stop using it? Hopefully not, because I’m 99% sure this cream did nothing for the actual condition of my undereyes!

I was skeptical but wanted to give it a try anyway. There’s just not much you can do for your undereyes if they need more volume! (Besides fat grafting or injections, neither of which I’m willing to do!) I’ll stick with some better eye creams and good concealers instead!

I do think it’s possible for creams to be so hydrating they help the area look more plump, but this one didn’t do that either. I think we’re better off using creams with Retinol or collagen.

Pros: hydrating, light cream that is good for daytime use
Cons: price, does not volumize, not worth the price
Final verdict: Look for something else!

Thanks for reading!

[Review] Etude House Collagen Moistfull Eye Cream

March 4, 2014

20140221_182021So, in the Korean Beauty Haul I posted recently, I got a couple of sample satchets of this Etude House eye cream. I figured I’d use up the samples and then write a mini review on it, since I can’t really write a full review without testing the product for a longer period of time. That being said, I think first impressions and such are really important, and usually if I love a product to start with, I continue loving it =)

All of that mess up there to say I’m going to review a sample I received. Geez. I need to cut down on the words sometimes.

Alright, so basically so far I like this eye cream! I can’t read any of the “product claims” and whatnot, since if there are any on the sample satchet, they’re in Korean (and let’s face it, my Korean is not that good yet!). Just judging by the name, I assume the cream is supposed to be very moisturizing and the collagen ingredients should help refirm the skin. Not sure if it’s supposed to have an effect on wrinkles…so….yeah.

For reference, I’m only 23, so I don’t really have many wrinkles yet, or flabby skin. I can’t really comment on how the cream does with wrinkles or re-firming the skin, plus I’d have to use it longer! But I CAN say it is VERY moisturizing. My undereyes feel great when I use this. It doesn’t have a cooling effect or anything, it just feels very moisturized and healthy. Also, when I wake up in the morning, my undereyes are still hydrated! I like that it sticks around overnight. I don’t like putting on moisturizers and creams only to wake up dry =/ Most eye creams I’ve used soak in more, so my undereye area isn’t as hydrated in the morning. I really like that about this cream!

Additionally, I didn’t notice any offensive smell, so that’s always a plus! It also didn’t irritate my skin in any way.

I’ve already gone ahead and purchased a full size of this, so maybe I can do an in depth review later?

Pros: EXTREMELY hydrating, lasts a long time, no smell, no irritation
Cons: Not sure it takes care of wrinkles, but I don’t have many anyway
Verdict: Try it out and see how it goes for you!
