This is my first review for the #trymereviewme box that I received from Stylekorean: Heimish Marine Care Eye Cream! If you’ve read my blog before you know that I don’t think that eye creams are absolutely necessary unless you’re trying to tackle a specific problem or the skin under your eyes is particularly sensitive. However, they can be a nice addition to your skincare routine.

What is the Heimish Marine Care Eye Cream

The Marine Care Eye Cream from Heimish is formulated with 51% marine water and 2% Niacinamide to moisturize and brighten the under-eye area. It also contains Peptide and Adenosine to help minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The cream is recommended to be used at night so it can help the skin appear more refreshed in the morning. Many refer to this cream as a dupe for The Eye Concentrate from La Mer.
It comes in a 30ml tub.

Application

You can scoop the cream with the flat end of the massager that comes with the product. I dot it under my eye area after I’ve applied toner or essence and spread it in a very thin layer. I do this because the skin under my eyes is prone to milia so I’d like to avoid applying skincare that can be too rich. Pat it gently using your ring fingers. Then you can use the other end of the applicator to massage the product into the skin.

Heimish Marine Care Eye Cream Review

Consistency

The texture of the Heimish Marine Care Eye Cream is rich, buttery and feels very luxurious. It glides on beautifully on the skin. A little goes a long way, so this would last you for quite some time.

Scent

This cream does contain fragrance, so keep this in mind if you’re sensitive to it or if you prefer your skincare products free of any scent. I personally really like how it smells and I haven’t experienced any irritation. I use very little product anyway, so I don’t feel that it’s overpowering.

Performance

Although it may feel very rich upon application, the eye cream sets into a satin-like finish and doesn’t feel greasy. However, now that the weather has gotten really warm, I personally use this only at night as I feel it may be a bit much during the day for my oily/dehydrated skin. I can’t really do sunscreen and eye cream in the same routine! Hence, this would be more suitable for people with normal to drier skin types.

It moisturizes the eye area very well and leaves the skin feeling super soft. I’m seriously obsessed with the finish of this cream. It has such a luxurious feel and makes my routine much more enjoyable.

It fills in the fine lines creating a smoother appearance. My eyes do look more refreshed and less tired in the morning. I’ve been only using it for a few weeks so I can’t say about its long term effect on wrinkles/lines. I think there is no miracle skincare product to get rid of them. However, keeping the skin around the eyes moisturized will definitely help with how they look and prevent/delay the formation of new ones.

I usually apply eye creams on my smile lines as well, and one day while I was rubing the area I did notice a very slight pilling which really surprised me. It could be due to Titanium Dioxide that’s in the cream. You won’t be rubbing the undereye area anyway, so realistically speaking that won’t be a problem. It could possibly hinder the application of makeup. I have used it only at nighttime so I haven’t been able to test it in this regard.

So far I have not noticed any milia caused by this, but I use just a tiny bit of product to avoid it. But keep in mind that the texture is very creamy, so it may not be the best choice for those that have this concern.
