I am sorry about the lack of posts on the blog for the past 4 days. I have been posting only once and there are 3-4 more Etude House swatch posts I need to write but I am battling with an injury. I like to keep the negative stuff private because I like to spread fun and positivity at least through this blog but it is impacting my blogging frequency so I thought I would update you on this.
If you have been following the blog for a while, you know I suffered from a soft tissue injury on my right hand last year in March and ever since my right hand and arm get swollen if I perform any medium to heavy workload. I was out for 3-4 days in the 7 days taking photos for the blog and generally for Spring (I love Cherry Blossoms) and my hand must have felt the strain due to carrying and continuous handling of my DSLR. It may sound funny especially because I am a tough girl and I do not look delicate but that’s just how it is right now. So anyway, I have still continued blogging every day on both of my blogs (using my left hand predominantly) since I am participating in the April A to Z blogging challenge. And I hate quitting.
Today is the day of the Alphabet “I” and I decided to do a quick review of the eye stick I have been using for over 3 months – Innisfree Eco Science Eye Stick.
Product: Innisfree Eco Science Eye Stick SPF38 PA++
Claim: Protects the delicate area around the skin from sun damage and moisturizes the under eye area. Jeju sea mustard and gulfweed with enriched Vitamin A and mineral offer energy to increase self-defensive power of skin.
Quantity: 30 g
Price: 12000 KRW (~12 USD)
I got the Innisfree Eco Science Eye stick a few months ago (sometime in late 2013) when there was a sale at Innisfree. The Eye stick was not on sale but I thought it looked interesting, convenient and travel-friendly. And I was right!
The Innisfree Eco Science Eye stick comes in a white plastic twist up tube (like a lipstick). The eye cream is solid and has a gel-like consistency when applied to the skin. It moisturizes the skin efficiently and also gets absorbed by the skin. I love using it under my makeup.
The best part is that is contains SPF38 and PA++ which means that it protects the delicate skin in the under eye area from UVA and UVB damage from the sun rays. It is very convenient to use and very travel friendly.
Even though 30 grams does not sound like a lot of product, (because of the stick consistency) this eye stick lasts long and is reasonably priced! This eye stick paraben-free, mineral oil-free, (added) color-free and fragrance-free – exactly what I prefer in my skincare products
The product is not listed on the Innisfree English website.
I sometimes use this as a night eye cream even though I usually do not apply and products with SPF at night (duh?). But as a day eye cream, it works wonders. I do not see much difference to the fine lines under my eyes but it is good for everyday use especially if you are young or do not have very dry under eye area and do not need heavy duty moisturization under the eyes. I love using this and this is my third eye cream from Innisfree (first in the order of buying and using). Innisfree products are really good quality and are reasonable priced. If you are lazy in applying eye creams, this will be the easiest option for you to use!
