Etude House added a new item to their Moistfull skincare range: The Eye Essence.
It comes in a little pump bottle and contains a generous 30ml which is about double the size you usually get in eye creams.
The Eye Essence is a very lightweight white emulsion that spreads very easily so it's good to wear under makeup as it's not greasy or heavy at all and sinks into my skin right away.
However for me it's too lightweight. I have normal-dry skin and I am just 27 years old so I don't need a heavy eye cream but the Eye Essence is too light for my taste. I can wear it during the day if I use a moisturizing concealer on top of it but for night time I prefer another item, namely the Secret Time Total Eye Balm.
The Secret Time range is meant for more mature drier skin-types and their face care items are generally too rich for me. However I really like their Total Eye Balm. It's a white richer cream but it's not too heavy. It makes the area around my eyes smooth and soft. I can't say if it improves wrinkles as so far I am lucky to have none.
The pretty lilac jar contains 20ml.
Both products are lightly scented which might be a problem if you're sensitive to scents.
I paid 10500 Won (about US$8 or so) for the Eye Essence and 14000 Won for the Total Eye Balm.
The total Eye Balm came with a free little mirrored oil blotting paper compact (filled).
