Review: Innisfree Olive Real Eye Cream

IMPORTANT: There is an updated version of this cream, the EX version. The reason why I have uploaded this review is 1. This is the cream I am using and 2. Although I have not tried the EX version – I would imagine that it would be quite similar to this and I would therefore have the same opinion.

The updated version can be purchased on Yesstyle (the updated version is 50ml): HERE

What does it do:
The Innisfree Olive Real Eye Cream is a highly enriched nutrient eye cream that provides long lasting moisture to the eye area.

Quoted from their website:

1. Gradual melting system 

The cream melts softly from the heat of your fingers, allowing it to spread easily on the skin. While gradually drying on the skin, the cream fills in fine wrinkles and creases caused by dryness. 

2. Intensive care eye cream for sensitive and easily irritated eyes 

A highly nourishing eye cream with antioxidants (polyphenol, oleic acid) and vitamins from organic olives for long-lasting hydration 

I agree that this melts into the skin and helps fill up fine lines.

Who is it for?: Combination, Normal, Oily and Dry

Directions:
Apply an appropriate amount onto the eye area by lifting and patting along the eye area.

How I use it: With my ring finger – dab onto the upper and lower eye skin, keep dabbing until it absorbs. I apply a thin layer in the day time and a thicker layer in the evening over my eye serums.

Fragrance?: Yes. It has a subtle essential oil smell.

Texture: It’s like shea butter. Just melts into the skin. Could possibly congest those who are sensitive to creams around the eyes (i.e. susceptible to eye milia).

Good under Makeup?: Yes. You can even apply more than one layer and it’s fine.

Key Ingredients: Olive Oil – creates a moisture shield to prevent dry skin. Vitamin E – forms moisture shield on outer layer of skin to prevent moisture loss (also an antioxidant).

The Good:

-The texture makes it so easy to apple, rub in, absorb and wear under makeup

-Moisturises

The Bad:

-Wish this was in a tube (I always find it iffy dipping my finger into pots but I don’t have time for a spatula)

-Could be an issue for those who get eye milia

-Even if it subtle, there is a fragrance

-It’s literally a moisturising cream, it would be cool to add eye brighteners in or peptides.

Overall: I think this eye cream has been fab. It moisturises, I have been layering this with no issues and even use it over my laneige eye sleeping mask. It locks in moisture without irritation. The only issue I can see someone having with this is if they dont like dipping their fingers into pots

Rating: 4/5 (Just wish it was in a tube and not a pot)

Would I repurchase?: Yes. This is both a thick and heavy cream (the closest thing I can say to this cream is room-temperature butter), which makes it very easy to use in the day time (apply less) and the night time (apply more). I would say the orchid eye cream would also be good to sample after this.
