Product Review : Etude House Eye's Cream in Vanilla Moist

If you've read the announcement area, you'd have seen that I promised to be reviewing an eye cream today! I'm keeping my promise so here it is!

Today's product,

The Etude House Eye's Cream in Vanilla Moist! Don't be fooled though, it's not your average kind of eye cream. I'll show you why later.

There you have it, the ingredients list along with the instructions and description. There's the oh so popular hyaluronic acid to help moisturize! Also, see the many citrus-ish ingredients this product contains? They help to awaken your eyes and you can definitely sniff it to "freshen" yourself up too.

The directions you should apply your eye cream...

The packaging is very cute isn't it, the shape of the ice cream is there for a reason, at least that's what I interpret because the eye cream is as cool as ice cream!

Yeap that's right, this isn't your traditional eye cream. It's not your usual roll on eye serum either. In fact, some of you may find this product similar to this :

Very similar right? Of course there's a price difference. The Etude House one is retailing at $22.90 UP whereas the Kiehl's one is retailing at $45 UP!

You can buy two of those Etude House ones with the same amount of money as opposed to the Kiehl's one!

But then when there's dupes, everyone starts wondering if the high end one is better so let me review mine for you :D

When you uncap it, there's this little plastic stopper thing that I believe is there to prevent any accidental smooshing of the product onto the lid? And of course prevent the product from coming into contact with any germs.

Remove that plastic stopper and you get this shiny gel like stick!

This eye cream works like a lipstick, turn it out and then apply to eye area!

What I think about this product?

This product says that it's supposed to be an eye cream, but do not be mistaken my dears, your eyes will shrivel and get wrinkly if this is your only eye product. I'm not saying it sucks, nor am I saying it's perfect. It's like a luxury product, it gives your eyes a temporary boost of coolness and moisture, refreshing it.

It works just like the Kiehl's depuffer, it moisturizes and lowers the temperature of your eye area by a teensy bit so that you'll feel more awake. You can feel a layer of moisture on your undereyes after using this and you can choose to leave it to evaporate but personally I prefer patting it in. I prefer bringing this out to freshen up my eyes just because this little stick is soooo handy. Just dump it in my mu pouch and go! You can use this over make up if you're not afraid of it smudging your make up. I personally don't care because I can touch up but I will clean off the top layer of the cream if I use it on my made up face. I also enjoy using this late at night when I'm rushing reviews for Domokie!

This is something I'd consider great for touch up and definitely worth purchasing if you have to extra cash to spare. What's more, it's on discount now and it's only $18.30! So why not give it a go when you pass by Etude House outlets?

Scent : ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆ (I consider this a very normal orangey scent along with a tinge of vanilla.)
Texture : ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ (It absorbs quickly and is extremely cooling on the skin)
Effectiveness : ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆ (It hydrates a little but it's temporary, awakens tired eyes~)
Overall : ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆ (I recommend buying one to carry around for touch ups!)

Chiharu ❤

Disclaimer : I bought this with my own money too!
