[K-Beauty] Innisfree Perfect 9 Repair Eye Cream

A few months ago I was on a search for a really good eye cream. After internet research did not really prove that useful, I decided to just go for this Innisfree Perfect 9 Repair Eye Cream.



It was right at the beginning of winter, right when the air gets really really dry and all of the offices and businesses in Korea begin blowing really dry air all the time.

So, the skin around my eye started to become REALLY dry, like insanely dry. It was dry and patchy.
I was also working a lot and had some issues with dark circles and general discoloration and some under eye bags.

I knew from doing some first-hand research in a lot of the road shops that many of the products on the market in Korea had a lot of fragrance.

I have issues with dry eyes and allergies, so I didn't want to put heavy fragrance by my eyes. And, on top of that, the skin around my eyes is generally pretty sensitive.

I remembered that my friend had recommended the Perfect 9 line at Innisfree to me a year or two ago (because..."it's never too early to start an anti-ageing routine," she said).

As you might remember from some of my previous posts, I try to buy a lot of Innisfree products because I haven't had issues with them causing breakouts or anything on my skin. And, they say they're "all natural."

I have been using this product for the past few months and it has definitely helped with all of my issues that I stated above.

I am not sure about fine lines/wrinkles, so if you've had experience with those being helped, feel free to chime in.

The cream is very light and easy to apply. There is a light fragrance, like a really light, semi-fruity fragrance.

It is a little more expensive than some of the other options out there. It's 42,000 KRW and rarely goes on sale.

I was able to find it on Amazon for you lucky people out there who can order from Amazon: http://amzn.to/2latpXi
The current price (although I'm sure it fluctuates) is pretty on par with the current exchange rate.

You get 30 mL of product, which is a decent amount, and you may actually be able to use it all before the 12 months usage date.

Maybe I don't apply it properly? But, how can people use 60 mL of eye cream within a 12-month period? Anyway, that's an aside.

I actually recommend the entire Perfect 9 line if you're in the market to try out some new anti-aging products. I have tried many of the other items as samples (I'm working through a bunch of other products right now...I keep inheriting bottles when friends leave Korea, receiving them as gifts, etc.)

If you have any questions or your own opinions, let me know!

Or! If you have another eye cream recommendation, I'd love to hear it! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
