Skinfood is a popular Korean brand of skincare and cosmetic products. I had previously blogged about 2 of their BB creams – Agave Cactus Sun BB Cream and Mushroom Multi Care BB Cream, both of which I find very good.
So since then I’ve been really wanting to try their skincare range, and was particularly drawn to their Salmon eye range.
I picked up the Skinfood Salmon Brightening Eye Serum as the lighter texture would be more suitable for my oily skin.
What they say:
Skinfood Salmon Brightening Eye Serum contains Arbutin and the extracts of Omega 3 rich salmon roe produced in Hokkaido, Japan. This eye serum brightens and relieves dark circles around the eyes.
I just adore the packaging of SkinFood products – a little earthy, a little country and a LOT cutesy. Luckily at that time I was only in Taiwan for a short visit and planning for the big move, so I didn’t walk away with half of the store
The Salmon Brightening Eye Serum is in a fairly simple airless pump but the design on the label and brushed metal-like exterior make all the difference.
The nozzle is nice and small which is great, as it allows you to be able to dispense the tiniest amount as required.
The “serum” is more of a gel cream. It distributes nicely on the skin, is quite heavily fragranced but I don’t find it overpowering or unpleasant.
After using the eye serum religiously for a few weeks, and then on and off for the last few months, I have to say that I haven’t experienced any of the brightening effects. The eye area does feel soft and hydrated, but no more than if I just use my regular face lotion or cream on that area.
With so many products in my usual skincare repertoire, I have to say eye cream is not usually a part of it. Mainly because I have not yet found an eye product that makes much difference, and unfortunately the Skinfood Salmon Brightening Eye Serum is one of them.
Even though the Skinfood Salmon Brightening Eye Serum is light enough to not cause any white dots under my eyes, it’s still too rich for the rest of my face, causing me to break out a little in my efforts to using the product up.
I guess this will still make a cute little gift for someone
Skinfood Salmon Brightening Eye Serum retails for NT$1100 and is available from SkinFood concept stores Asia-wide. For non-Asia residents please try reputable online and Ebay resellers.
