Continuing my The Body Shop review trilogy (read two other here and here), for this last part I'll give a review of The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso 2in1 Brightening Eye Cream. Such a mouthful name, from this moment forward I'll just call it The Body Shop Shisho Eye Cream.
I don't know what happened to me but I feel like these past few months my under eye area is getting a little bit darker than usual. I'm sure I have enough sleeping time. Maybe lack of vegies? Does that affect under eye color? I don't think so. Hahaha. Whatever it is, I feel the need to brighten my under eye area so my face look fresher even without the help of some concealer. Thank God The Body Shop Shisho Eye Cream is one of the product that was in the goodie bag at The Female Daily & The Body Shop Mini Blogger Workshop.
A dual action cream that brightens eye area and improves darkened skin. The premium micro-circulating massager stimulates circulation to reduce signs of fatigue. Contains Shiso extract and Community Fair Trade organic aloe. Suitable for all skin types.
- Brightens and targets signs of fatigue around eyes
- Skin around the eye area feels fresher and smoother
The product housed in a matte plastic tube with metal applicator. Tube is totally my favorite kind of packaging. If you read some of my posts, you must have already known my love for tubes. If you're new here, I'm telling you why. Upside-down tube makes the product sits near the opening so it's easier to get the product out of the packaging.
The metal massager is something unique and I've never seen any other product like this before. It has a little hole on the center where the actual cream go through. So basically I just need to squeeze the tube a bit until I have desired amount of cream out and then apply it to my eye area using the metal tip. The tip is cold so it's really refreshing especially when it's mid-day and my eyes are tired from looking at the computer for too long. I wanted to say I love the applicator but there's something that holds me back. The metal tip needs to be cleaned after every single use. It'll get gross if you don't clean it everytime. Me being an ultimate lazy baby, I just want to slather the product to my skin and then throw it to my bag.
The cream is very creamy, not too thick, not too thin. It's a really nice cream consistency that spreads smoothly and makes the applicator glides easily. It needs time to absorb but nothing too disturbing and it hydrates my under eye area well. For the performance of The Body Shop Shisho Eye Cream, I have to say that it's just refreshing. I don't find my under eye brighter. It doesn't do miracle for me. For the price, I'm quiet disappointed with the performance.
+ Unique metal applicator
+ Feels refreshing
- Need to clean the applicator after each use
- Doesn't really do anything to my under eye
