I’m a firm believer in the use of eye cream because I don’t want to age and regret it many years later when I get wrinkles in that sensitive area. I do wish eye creams were a lot cheaper. I decided to try the Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream after seeing it at Target for $22.
I’m so glad kbeauty is now more accessible in western stores such as Target, Ulta, and Sephora. I do think $22 is a bit pricey for an eye cream, however, I realize snail mucus is not exactly cheap. And if you think about it, eye creams may come in small containers, but they last for a long time since it’s only applied around the eye area.
This particular eye cream is geared towards anti-aging. Like many kbeauty products, this eye cream does come with a spatula to keep it sanitary. I’m not too fond of the jar packaging, but the spatula helps a little.
The cream itself is white and a bit thicker than I anticipated. It does seem heavy, so use sparingly. I always find myself using too much product so then my eye area feels sticky. I’ve been using this for about a month and haven’t had any issues with it. I’ve heard of some users breaking out or reporting a stinging sensation. I do at times feel a slight tingling sensation, however, it is slight and only lasts for a couple minutes after application. It does not bother me enough to stop using it.
The cream does a good job at hydrating my eye area. However, I feel like it performs just as well as other creams I have used and haven’t noticed anything particularly special about this specific brand. It is a good cream, but I am always looking to try out new products.
