[Review] Innisfree Eco Science Wrinkle Spot Essence

After continuous rounds of disappointment in eye creams, I told  myself I was done with them but the wrinkles and fine lines under my eyes just got worse and I grew desperate.

With positive ratings constantly surfacing and surrounding this product, I decided to take the plunge and give the best seller a try. For several months, I applied it day and night. Hope seemed dim but I had faith something would rid me from my fine line and wrinkle misery.

Enriched with natural originated anti-aging active ingredients from marine plants and botanical extracts, Eco Science helps to revitalize skin and provides nutrients for self-protective skin.

The texture of the cream is actually quite sticky once you thin it out and beginning patting it. However it does absorb therefore you can apply it during the day under your makeup if you so please. There is a slight scent but it lingers for just a short moment so those with sensitive noses will be fine. ecoscience2

The product dispenses easily through a small opening and while it is not in the form of a pump, I actually think the design of the tube is quite hygienic. No complaints there whatsoever.

Is this product worth the purchase? Yes and no. It is a cheaper product compared to some of the bigger brands out there. I noticed no improvements on my fine lines or wrinkles but some have reported that it has reduced the appearance of theirs. While it didn’t do much for me, I can’t dismiss the fact that this has worked on other people. It might appear expensive to some people but trust me, 25mL is a great amount for that price. There is a pro version of this essence that includes a vibrating head. It retails at the same price and you don’t have to get your hands dirty so definitely look it up if you’re interested.

  1. Might I suggest that you try THEFACESHOP Wrinkle Stop Eye Cream. I can’t promise that it will work wonders for you but it definitely did wonders for me. It did not completely remove the fine lines I already have but my total under eye situation really improved after using this. I had dark circles, puffiness and fine lines going on. I still have them but a lot better than before. 🙂

  2. I have eye wrinkles and I have been looking for products that really work to at least diminish the appearance. Every time I read reviews on eye creams there are bad and good reviews so until now I haven’t decided which ones to buy.
