I have a feeling that the next thing in skincare is eyecare. I just know it! I mean, I know the market is still very much obsessed with anti-aging but seriously, we need to start targeting certain areas rather the entire face. And we all know that one of the first places that will show signs of aging are our eyes! That's why I'm always on the lookout for good eye products!
Recently, I purchased Innisfree's Eco Science Eye Mask. Innisfree is a Korean beauty brand that has recently opened two stores in Hong Kong. Their products use natural ingredients found on Jeju island and their packaging is all made from recycled materials. How eco-friendly!
Eco Science is their anti-aging line which aims to add vitality to the skin while strengthening the skin's barrier to combat aging. The main ingredients are Jeju sea plants which are rich in nourishing minerals and nutrients that can help restore and replenish the skin. The Eye Mask is only one of the products that features in this line.
The mask itself is a transparent gel film. One of the advantages of using a gel mask is that they adhere better to the skin, allowing ultimate essence absorption. You can also avoid the drama of paper masks where, if you wear them for too long, they can suck moisture from your skin.
Over the years, I've tried a few gel face and eye masks and, unfortunately, I never like them. They're a little pricer than paper masks so you expect them to be better but they rarely work for me. The biggest problem is that with paper masks, you can feel the essence being soaked into the paper/cloth. You can't with gel masks. All you feel is the jelly texture. I find that the masks don't absorb the serum and so you end up having two pieces of gel on your face.
Sadly, this eye mask didn't work for me either! I didn't see any improvements under my eyes which is a huge shame because other deep water products I've tried does wonders for dry skin. So I was definitely sad to see that this didn't seem to do much. It didn't even do the bare minimum, which is hydrate my under eye area.
