My Experience with The Body Shop Shiso 2 in 1 brightening eye cream review-

 

This Eye Cream comes in a sleek white plastic tube packaging with a silver metal applicator on tip of the tube with a semi-transparent plastic screw cap on it. The product looks fine and its travel friendly. The good part of the product is that you have complete control on the product. I loved the cooling sensation of the Micro-Circulating Applicator, it feels so good around the eye area, and instantly gives relief to tired and fatigued eyes! It has literally relaxed my eyes after applying product which leads me to sleep well.

The texture of product is white in color and is more of like a lotion and light weighted which is very hydrating on under eye area. Upon application it melts into the skin and is absorbed fast without making it appear greasy. The formula is also super hydrating and feels soothing on the skin. On a very close look, I could see some very fine shimmer particles in the cream. These tiny shimmers don’t look obvious on the skin around the eyes, but they do help to brighten up the whole eyes area a bit.

The consistency of this product is neither runny nor very thick which makes it easily spreadable evenly on under eye are. I use the metal nozzle to blend the product under the eyes but still I have to use my ring finger to dab the entire product completely into the skin. Some of the eye cream are very heavy and oily but thankfully, Moisture White™ Shiso 2 in 1 Brightening Eye Cream is not like that at all! It also makes my fine lines appear less noticeable. However, it does not fade my dark circle which was a disappointment for me. But I am happy that this cream has worked on my puffiness area and next morning made my eyes look fresh.

Though this cream is on the expensive side but since you need just a little quantity, it would last for at least 2-3 months. If you have dark circles because of lack of sleep or spending too many hours in front of your laptop, then this cream will help you. If your dark circles are genetics, then no cream can help you to lessen it though whatever they claim. I do not have genetic dark circle, but it did not do wonders on my eyes except reducing puffiness and making it little bright.

Overall, I must say that it’s a great eye cream with hydrating and moisturizing properties. It helps soothe and brighten the eye area and keeps it moisturized and fresh. It brightens the skin around eyes and reduces puffiness. As it is non-greasy in nature this cream is used best in summer or humid climate. However, it didn’t work too well on my pesky dark circles apart from the slight brightening effect inspite of paying good amount.

  • Moisturizes the under-eye areas very well.
  • Non-greasy and hydrating
  • Brightens up the eyes, giving them a healthy glow.

  • Not for genetic dark circles.

Will I buy this product again?

No, I need little more effective cream. Those who are having little dark circles this cream can do wonders on them.
