Review: Innisfree Orchid Eye Cream

Hello everyone!

Today I will be sharing my final thoughts- and experince on the Innisfree Orchid Eye Cream. Unlike some of the recent products I’ve reviewed, this one wasn’t bought on a whim. I had actually heard about this eye cream for a long, long time prior to purchasing it, and only good things at that! So when this baby arrived in my post box and I got to hold it in my hands for the very first time, I was fully aware that this product came straight from the deepest part of the holiest of all Holy Grails! Puh! *Catches my breath*.

If you’re interested in the first impression, you can find it here.
But for now, let’s get crackin’ with the review   ↓

So what do I like about the Innisfree Orchid Eye Cream?
I’ve used this eye cream for more than a month now and I’m totally in love with it! Not only does it look good on the skin plus feel great, but it also performs like a champion. I mean, it really does what it claims to do when it comes to hydrating and moisturizing. When it comes to anti-aging, I can’t really judge it yet, because I don’t have wrinkly under eyes. However, I do have a few fine lines so I will definetely be on the lookout for any subtle changes!

Other than that, the consistency of the Orchid Eye Cream product is simply delicious, and it’s super easy to spread out. And when it comes to the price it’s definetely less affordable than other Kbeauty eye creams that I’ve tried, BUT with this one, a little really does go a looong way. Like I said, I’ve had the same tub for over a month, and I’ve literally just scratched the surface! For 19.50 USD you get a ton of product and it will last you several months. In my opinion, it’s totally worth it.

And what are the cons?
The only cons I can think of when it comes to the Innisfree Orchid Eye Cream is the container and the scent. I’m not even sure that these so-called “cons” really count as cons, as they in my opinion really aren’t a problem, but for some they might be… So, the tub is made of hard plastic and therefore very solid. However, it is a bit big and bulky for an eye cream. My guess is that someone who travels a lot, might not consider the container of this product travel friendly due to it’s size, although it is indeed solid and will keep the product inside nice and safe.

Also, I’d say that this eye cream only scores just above average when it comes to it’s scent. I mean, it doesn’t at all smell bad, but someone who has a super sensitive sense of smell, might not enjoy it because it does have a slightly flowery scent that could take some getting used to. I did, and don’t even think about it anymore, so for me this isn’t an issue. And to be fair; the scent disappears quickly after application   🙂


Conclusion?
I love this eye cream, and I will absolutely repurchase it when the time comes, which will be many months from now, lol! You really get a lot of bang for your buck when it comes to this one and it will for sure last you a long, long time. As already mentioned, the eye cream comes in a secure container, that will protect the product which I for one am very grateful for, because I have experienced the absolute suck when a container breaks and the product inside gets f*cked!
And last but definetely not least, the Innisfree Orchid Eye Cream truly deserves a medal for keeping the dry and fragile skin around my eyes, nourished and super soft. AND a trophy for not giving me Milia, which has kicked my undereyes’ asses before. I must admit that I at first was a bit skeptical towards this eye cream, as it is a rather thick, white cream, but it passed the test, and no signs of Milia ever showed up. Thank God. In other words, I’m really enjoying this product and I won’t stop using it unless I come across an eye cream that has a million medals in it’s pocket!

“And remember; I always recommend taking a closer look at any new product before purchasing it, just in case you’re allergic or sensitive to one or more of the ingredients. Personally I always check before buying a new product, because I know my skin is of the extra vulnerable type, as I do have dehydrated combination skin with acne prone areas. You can find the ingredients, what they are and what they do at CosDna.” -Myself, lol

Also rember that if you’re very sensitive to smell, maybe consider buying a few samples before comitting to a whole tub, cause I’m telling you, this mother, once she’s moved into your bathroom, won’t leave for a good few months!

So that’s it for my review on the Orchid Eye Cream from Innisfree! As always, I Hope you enjoyed it and maybe even found it a bit helpful. Please let me know what your experience with this product is, if you’ve tried it!   🙂

First impression: Innisfree Orchid Eye Cream

Hey guys!

It’s time to share my first thoughts on a product that I’ve had in my shopping cart several times without purchasing. I’m of course talking about the Orchid Eye Cream from Innisfree! This is a product that I’ve heard great things about for a long time, and finally the time has come for me to stick my nose in it! Or should I say my eyes?

So let’s get to it   ↓

After only trying the Innsfree Orchid Eye Cream once, I have to say that I rather enjoy it. I’m not a massive fan of the scent, but it’s okay. I can deal with it! And yes, the container is a bit big and bulky for an eye cream, at least in my opinion, but it’s solid and keeps the product safe. So how can I possibly complain? After all, the most important thing is the actual product, and if it does as it claims or not.

Of course it may take some time to see actual improvements or differences in the skin in general, but so far I quite like it. The skin around my eyes feels supple and moisturized, and that’s indeed what I’m going for here! When it comes to how effective it is in the anti-aging department, I’m not the right person to ask, cause there ain’t really a lot of aging going on here yet. Oh, and I can tell that this tub is going to last a long time, and that’s always a plus if the product turns out to be good!

And remember; I always recommend taking a closer look at any new product before purchasing it, just in case you’re allergic or sensitve to one or more of the ingredients. Personally I always check before buying a new product, because I know my skin is of the extra vulnerable type as I do have dehydrated combination skin with acne prone areas. You can find the ingredients, what they are and what they do at CosDna
.

As with any other product I try, I’ll be back with a full review on the Innisfree Orchid Eye Cream in a couple of weeks, if not before. It all really depends on how well (or bad) my skin takes to it.

So that’s it for my first impression on this eye cream! Hope you found it helpful. And please let me know if you’ve tried this product and what you think of it!
