After you turn 27 (that was a long time ago for me) you start noticing crows feet (not the bird) and some fine lines on your face. It’s a very scary change for most women and the one thing that I said if it was ever time to use face and eye creams it is now. I know you have always told yourself, I will never cry when I see my first fine line, but honestly it’s a shocker and you want it to go away. The first thing is that you have to figure out why you are getting them. I found out that I am getting them because my under eye area is totally dehydrated. So I decided to get this Asian product from Skinfood.
Skinfood Avocado Rich Eye Balm
You might have read my other SkinFood reviews in the past. If you have been following me for a while now, you know that I love my asian cosmetics and tend to buy makeup and skincare products from them time to time, I wrote a post about where I buy my Asian cosmetics. Skinfood is a well known south korean brand that is produced in Japan, which is recommended a lot of asian bloggers and so that is why I started to buy this brand. I was looking at what products Skinfood offered and I found that they have different lines. The one that caught my eye was the Avocado line. The Skinfood avocado line which is intended for dry skin that is in desperate need for hydration. The line claims to be deeply moisturizing, highly nutritious line with avocado ingredients and protein provides moisture and balances oil production. It’s based on a combination of shea butter, avocado, sweet potato extracts, green bamboo, water lilies and lotus flower. So, now you can see why I chose this line in particular.
Skinfood Avocado Rich Eye Balm Review
The Skinfood avocado rich eye balm comes in a super cute packaging like all skinfood products, half the reason why I buy their products. The jar is sturdy and easy to open and close. The texture of the cream is very balm like. It’s thick and very creamy kind of reminds me of an actual lip balm but smoother. The eye balm actually has a very noticeable scent which was also my main problem with the Skinfood Honey black tea cleansing oil. The scent is of green tea and avocado. It’s a pleasant scent but it doesn’t fade on your skin not every. I still have the same container from 2 years ago (going into the trash this week, I wrote an article about when to know it’s time to toss your makeup) and it still has that very strong smell.
Skinfood Avocado Rich Eye Balm Beauty Product Review
For this beauty product review I have been using the Skinfood avocado rich eye balm for about 3 weeks. The one thing I didn’t like about it is that it gave me puffy bags in the morning. If this happens to you there is only one reason (which I was told and read online about) why this is happening. When the eye cream is too thick, it just sits on your skin instead of your skin absorbing your cream and this will result with puffiness. I didn’t notice any real changes on my skin in those 3 weeks. My skin did seem a bit smoother but nothing like I have read from other bloggers which used this same product. This eye balm can only be used for your night care routine. This is not a eye balm which you can use during the day it’s to rich and your eyes will look oily the entire time. This Skinfood avocado rich eye balm did not cause any millia on my skin.
In short, Skinfood avocado rich eye balm did not make my fine lines vanish it did hydrate my skin a bit but nothing to crazy. I personally expected more from it. I found that for me personally it was a bit to much that my skin wasn’t able to absorb it even though my under eye skin is very dehydrated. I also couldn’t handle the scent on a daily level and that is another reason why I decided to stop using it. Today I use the rest of the eye balm on my hands. This might work on other people but sadly for me it didn’t rock my boat maybe the cream version might be better for my skin. One more note is that the date on the back of the container is not the expiration date, but rather the date when the product was made. I am unaware as to how long this can be open and what the expiration date it.
