I loved the previous eye cream I reviewed by Laneige because of its hydration, but since it was only a sample I bought a new one: Mizon Multi Function Formula Snail Repair Eye Cream! Phew, it is a long name so I will shorten it to Mizon’s Snail Repair Eye Cream throughout the review ;) There are a lot of people out there who are familliar with the Mizon Snail Repair skincare line and snail mucus has been a highly raved ingredient in the past year and still it is. Mizon’s Snail Repair Cream has a lot of fans and this is the eye cream in this skincare range. Some of you might be wondering, because it comes in a jar ususally, but since some time ago Mizon offers this size for the cream and the eye cream, too. Since you normally don’t use a lot of eye cream throughout the day, I find that jars are normally like forever lasting and if you don’t like the cream you end up wasting a lot of product. I was really happy about this travel size tube ( which was affordable, too!) and bought it right away.
Mizon is a Korean brand and as already mentioned the Multi Funcional Formula Snail Repair Line is the most well known amonst their products. I reviewed the really recommendable Snail Recovery Gel Cream earlier and this is the perfect product for snail mucus newbies. And don’t worry, the cream or nothing about it will make you think of snails, except the name…and for animal lovers: no animal was harmed for obtaining snail mucus. All Mizon products I tried so far had a sealed packaging with a reflective sticker, and this one also has a sign that it is approved by the KMAC (Korean Model Association Certificate). Honestly, I don’t know this certificate or know what it means and I didn’t find anything on google either. Any information anyone?
As already said earlier, the cream comes in a standard tube with a screwing cap. I would have preferred a pump instead of jar or normal tube, because it is more hygienic, but a tube is already more hygienic than a jar in my opinion. The tube comes in a cardboard box containing the description in English and Korean. Also the ingredients are written in English, which is great. The components of the cream are not harmfull according to COSDNA and mostly green flagged. There are some irritants/acne triggers though, so if you have sensitive skin, you may check the ingredients first. The main ingredient is the snail secration filtrate, which is on first place in the list. It makes 80% of the cream, which is a great amount. Snail secration filtrate is supposed to promote wound healing and have a positive effect on photodamaged skin.
Note that you can find the production date (not the expiration date!) on the top of the tube.
The application of the cream is easy. You need only a tiny amount of the cream which can be dosed easily by the tube. The cream has a white, creamy consistency and does not look like snail mucus at all. It has no scent either. While applying the cream the consistency turns more watery and aborbs fast into the skin, leaving it without any traces or greasiness. It makes the skin feel matte and healthy.
Do I like the this cream: Yes. It is a good eye cream for the day time. I also had no problems with it when applying concealer for example. In terms of moisture, I still think that Laneige’s Waterbank Eye Gel is my favourite. This one gives you a more healthy look. I can’t say that it makes my fine eye lines vanished, but it helps to make the under eye area look nurished. I can recommend this eye cream as a good daily eye cream. At night, I use another eye care product (serum) atm. You can find the tube for 10.37 US$ at W2Beauty. If you want to try the tube I would look at www.testerkorea.com.
Who knows this eye cream or would like to try it?
