Happy Thursday! 🙂
Tonight I’m reviewing this:
I’m starting to get some fine lines around my eyes, particularly when I smile, and so tried this THEFACESHOP product out! (To provide some context: I’m late 20s, combination to oily skin, don’t smoke, don’t tan, moisturise, use sunscreen regularly, try to remember to wear my sunnies when outdoors all year round…!) It claims to be an “intense eye lift mask” which works to “soothe the eye area” and create “more youthful skin”, as well as boosting endorphins! (LOL that’s the first time I’ve found a beauty product that specifically claims to do that! :))
Here are my thoughts…
Price range: I picked up two packages (each package contains 2 eye patches, 1 for each eye) for $9.95 AUD.
Where can I get it? Exclusive to THEFACESHOP.
You have to be careful taking the eye patches out, as they are in a plastic tray and if you happen to open the package upside down (which you won’t know until you open it!) they could fall out on the floor! (Luckily this didn’t happen to me, phew!) here you can see the patches in their tray, which looks a bit like an odd blurry line (ok ok I need a better camera! ;)):
The patches have a slight berry fragrance and have an unusual appearance, a bit like a firm mesh like jelly! When you put them under each eye you can feel the skin tightening straight away, but it isn’t unpleasant… in fact it feels quite refreshing!
40 minutes later… (I left them on for the recommended time) I felt relaxed and my face felt fresh, but I can’t say I necessarily had an endorphin boost! 😛 Unfortunately I didn’t notice much difference in my fine lines! Perhaps this is something that you need to use over a longer period of time to get optimum results, as the packaging does indicate it is designed to promote collagen production in one’s own skin, which would take time… For now I’ll just keep remembering to wear my huge sunnies when I’m out in the sun! 😛 (and to keep moisturising day and night haha!)
Nevertheless, due to the reasonable cost this product may be worth you trying to see if you get different results!
Beautiful rating: quality 2/5, value 1/5 (it felt lovely on my skin but didn’t seem to work for me, hence I can’t say it is great quality or value :()

Thanks for the review 🙂 It’s a shame you didn’t see any results. I’m still looking for a good eye cream, so far I’ve used rose hip oil which worked really well and actually made my eyelashes longer but I had to stop using it because it was getting in my eyes and irritating them 😦 So then I tried vitamin e oil, which is a lot stickier but still got in my eye, even though I was careful not to apply it too close to the lash line. I’ve also tried honey, apparently that helps reduce dark circles and tighten the skin. It definately made my skin “tighter” and help brighten the area but it was just way too sticky! *sigh* I might try an eye cream with honey in it’s ingredient list…
Hi Rin my pleasure hm the rosehip oil sounds like it’s worth trying but you make a good point re eye irritation! Yeah I think its a matter of just keeping on looking & experimenting! 🙂
I wish I could find The Face Shop here in Canada, but the first time i heard of it was on your blog…I love that they’re asian. I’m all over the asian skin care (hence working with Wishtrend) and ugh! SO JEALOUS.
Hi Jake I’m really surprised it’s not over there because it is very popular here (and of course Australia’s a much smaller country population wise)… BUT you can get it on eBay and often at 1/2 the RRP of what you can get it for in THEFACESHOP branded shops here in Australia. If you like one day we could do a parcel swap and I’ll send you some THEFACESHOP goodies!
Ah, that would be so fun! Let’s do something like that next month. :3
Sounds good to me 🙂 I just picked up some stuff for you from them, Tony Moly & another brand! (As I was in the city near these shops today.) Stuff that’s easy to post 🙂 I’ll email you about this this week. 🙂
OK! Let me know if there are any Canadian brands you’d like to try! If there isn’t, e-mail me about the kind of skin you have and I’ll send you some of my favorite skin care. 😉
