Price:  £23.49

Volume: 25ml

Made in: South Korea

What does it do: It’s supposed to de-puff (using the massage ball) and form an occlusive/hydrating layer to keep your skin hydrated over-night.

Packaging: Glass bottle.

Good for: All skin types  – Dull, dry and puffy eyes

Directions:

Can use in the morning – using the ceramic ball massage to reduce puffy eyes or in the evening as a mask.  

There are also directions with diagrams on how to massage correctly using the massage ball – thanks Laneige!

How I use it:

After cleansing, I apply this on and roll with the massage ball under the eyes (to de-puff) in the morning and then pat in with my ring-finger in the evening. I always apply an eye cream on top because the skin around my eyes is dehydrated.

Texture:

A serum consistency. Not like a cream. It is light enough to be absorbed into the skin.

Good under makeup?:

Yes. This was fine for me.

Key Ingredients: Caffeine (to de-puff the eyes / reduce dark circles). Glycerin (hydration), Beta-glucan – also hydration. Vitamin C, Adenosine (brightening).

Fragrance: Yes. If you have used the original sleeping mask, then it smells like that. A light scent – not overpowering. Of course, I wish it didn’t have it.   

Good Points:

  • Hydrating and moisturising
  • Fine under makeup
  • Easy to massage and sink into the skin
  • De-puffs (with the use of the massage ball which is excellent)
  • Feels really nice on the skin i.e. cooling

Bad Points:

  • Although I just said this was hydrating and moisturising, for someone like me who has dehydrated skin around the eyes then this mask is not enough to moisturise as I apply an eye cream on top (makes me question the need for this product).
  • Has fragrance
  • Hard to see how much you have left (due to opaque packaging and no dropper included due to the massage ball being your applicator.
  • Massage ball is quite large – for those with smaller eyes/hooded eyes it might be hard to use/manoeuvre around the eyes.
  • Could seem unhygienic with dipping the stick in and out of the bottle and rubbing your skin with it (of course preservatives/parabens should prevent this but…)

Conclusion: Overall this is a really nifty product. I like the massage ball, it’s a cool idea. I don’t use it all the time due to laziness so that’s when it gets in the way. I do require an eye cream over this, so I don’t know how effective or necessary it is regarding the price of this product if I feel like I need another product on top. That being said it does hydrate and cool my skin.

Overall: 4/5

Would I repurchase: Yes I would! I like the massage ball and de-puffing effect a lot. I also like the consistency of this (I feel like it refreshes my eyes).
