Do you use eye cream? I know some people think eye cream is basically a moisturizer but with extra/premium ingredients (hence why some has very absurd prices). But if you are looking for a good eye cream with a good price, let me share with you my fave from Innisfree – Innisfree Green Tea Seed Eye Cream!
This review does not reflect the latest Innisfree Green Tea Seed Eye cream version. I’ve noticed that Innisfree tend to update their packaging/formula quite frequently and this was my experience from a previous review.
An eye cream containing antioxidants from 100% squeezed green tea that are rich in amino acids and minerals for deep hydration and nourishment. Customized just for the delicate eye area, this nourishing eye cream instantly replenishes and helps lock in moisture with antioxidant-rich green tea and green tea seed oil grown and harvested on Innisfree.

- CAMELLIA SINENSIS LEAF EXTRACT or green tea extract is cult’s favorite ingredient for having many skin-loving benefits. The polyphenols in green tea have potent antioxidant and skin-soothing properties, and show significant promise for improving the appearance of sun-damaged skin. Green tea is also a great choice for those with acne-prone skin as it has antimicrobial properties and also can act as astringent to keep your sebum at bay.
- PANTHENOL is great humectant, great for those with dry skin. It helps to promote skin healing by enhancing cell growth. It’ll binds with water and enhance hydration, making your skin feels smoother and supple
How to use
During your skincare routine, use a finger to apply a small amount of eye cream around your eyes. Gently pat it on your skin for the best absorption.
This eye cream is packed in a sturdy plastic jar, in deep-green color palette. The material doesn’t feel cheap and the quality is great IMO. It doesn’t come with its own spatula
The texture of this eye cream is a smooth and lightweight, white in color soft cream
This eye cream has a waxy fresh green tea scent
Dehydrated-combination, oilier on nose and cheek area. Prone to redness and mild acne.
This is actually my second tube and I’m already about to run out! Feels cooling and the cooling effect is further intensifies if you put it in a fridge first. Although it looks like a thick cream but it is actually feels luxurious and easy to spread without tugging the delicate skin around your eyes. Despite having a couple of moisturizing ingredients like green tea seed oil, glycerine and shea butter, this eye cream absorbs effortlessly with light tap on skin. It leaves just a nice film of long-lasting moisture without feeling heavy at all. In fact, I didn’t experience milia forming from using this eye cream as some eye cream tend to be too moisturising that it caused milia.
Unlike other eyecreams with a standard amount of 15 ml, you get double the product volume! You know how pricey eye creams are on the market so this is really a plus point for a cheapskate like me LOL!
The truth is I’m don’t only use this product for my eyes but also all over my face as a moisturiser too! I was out of moisturisers and the only cream product that I have then was this Innisfree eyecream. Surprisingly, my skin doesn’t feel oily the next morning. Plus, my skin’s irritation was reduced immensely. Acne healed much faster and eventually my acne is controllable. Since then, this eye cream has become my savior each time I messed up my skin with unsuitable products.
In conclusion, this eye cream doesn’t really brightens my under eye but it diminished my smile line wrinkles and it is a great eye cream to de-puff and maintain moisture (works as a great face moisturizer too!). I can’t wait to get my hands on the latest version as I noticed they changed the formula a bit and spotted panthenol (fave humectant :D) as one of the ingredients. Yay!
