By Irene Moreno, guest blogger.
Since my early 20s, an eye cream has been part of my beauty routine. Now that I am 30, I am looking for new formulas that can help soothe my under eye wrinkles and dark circles. Both of these conditions are genetic, Thank you Dad!, and there is nothing I can do about it (excluding plastic surgery, of course). I have brown/tan skin and if I am not wearing concelear people think that I am terribly ill. I try to keep green tea in the freezer at all times just in case I need a quick pick my not so cute panda eyes up. Although my case might seem hopeless, I like taking care of my eyes and experiment with different eye cream formulas.
Enough about me! Let´s get down to business. I tried Mizon’s Snail Repair Eye Cream Multi Function Formula (already finished the tube) and Mizon’s Intensive Skin Barrier Eye Care Set (I have been using it for over 3 weeks now). I am new to Korean beauty and shamelessly my main incentive for buying these two products was the incredible low price of the items and also the popularity of the Mizon brand.
- Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream. Multi Function Formula
This is an all-in-one eye cream formulated with 80% snail mucin. The product is described as a cream that hydrates, helps diminish the look of fine lines, and promotes the brightening of dark eye areas. It is also said to be perfect for all skin types. You can find the complete list of ingredients here. I found the packaging to be the perfect travel size. With one squeeze you can get the necesary amount of product out of the small tube. The texture is lighter than most eye creams, more like a lotion. For me this is a good thing because my skin tends to get oily and the products absorbs quite well after application. I think it has a little bit of a smell, maybe is the snail smell? (laughs) but it is not an unpleasant smell. I think this product provides good hydration for the eye area but I did not see any improvement in my fine lines or dark circles. I think the Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream will go well with someone that is on their teenage years, a person that wants a light hydration for the under eye area. As for me, I will probably not buy it again as I will like to try other things that are in the market.

This was an interesting product. The set comes with 3 elements, an eye roller with a massage essence, an extra tube of essence and a hyaluronic and the Mizon intensive skin barrier ceramide-rich eye cream that you apply with a spatula. You can find a complete list of ingredients here. This product claims that “your eyes will be coaxed back to youthful firmness and smoothness”. I like that the package included instructions with images that explained how to correctly apply the product and the pressure points that you should focus on.
According to Mizon, you should use the essence daily (morning and night) and the eye cream just at night, 3 times a week, for best results.
These are the application instructions found at Mizon’s website:
I really enjoyed the massaging power of the eye roller, it provides a cool sensation to the eye area. The essence was quickly absorbed by the skin. I went through the first tube very quickly (applying it daily day and night), that is why there is an extra essence tube in the set. The eye-cream was very rich in texture. A little scoop goes a long way! If your skin tends to be dry, this product might absorb quickly, but if you have oily prone skin (like myself) you need to gently cleanse the excess product from the eye rim to avoid getting milia, those little white bumps under the eye. Overall, it was a nice experience to take care of the eyes with two products and massaging them. I am not sure if I found more firmness or smoothness (as I said above my case is a bit complicated) but I could probaby buy this eye-cream set again. However, for now I am looking forward to trying other Korean products. Let me know which ones are your favorites for the eye area!
Where to find it: I got mine from Peach and Lily.
