Review: The Body Shop Shiso 2 in 1 Brightening Eye Cream

One of the questions I get asked a lot from readers is... 

"Hi Yina, what eye cream do you recommend?"

Now, just like many other bloggers and night owls out there, I spend a lot of late nights up, working.. Editing pictures, writing, or even just doing random unproductive stuff on my phone like surfing Instagram or blogging on Dayre -.- Like now.. It's past 2am as I'm writing this! *guilty*

And I've had genetic dark eye rings and puffy eyes since young!!!

Have you ever seen a baby with puffy eyes and dark eye rings before? YUP, that's me. Lol. The proportion of forehead to face remains the same: overly-tall forehead =.=

Because of the horrid dark eye rings and eye bags that I've had since young, I am very particular about taking care of the areas around my eyes! Using eye cream is always a must for me, and I've tried soooo many many different brands of eye cream!

You can't just use the same products you use on the rest on your face around your delicate eye area, because of how fragile the skin around your eyes are, and also because of the specific concerns (dark circles, puffy eye bags) that require special attention! That is why it is so important to use an effective eye cream.

 I know that I'm not the only one facing problems with dark eye rings and puffy eyes out there, and I'm really pleased to share my latest find: The Body Shop Moisture White™ Shiso 2 in 1 Brightening Eye Cream!

Moisture White™ Shiso 2 in 1 Brightening Eye Cream
The Moisture White™ Shiso range is powered by Shiso Complex, a potent combination of Vitamin C, Liquorice and Shiso, some of the best skin-brightening ingredients found in nature!

It is also developed for and tested by Asian women, and the products are proven to deliver visible benefits of skin radiance, clarity and improved luminosity in just FOUR weeks!!

Lucky me got to attend the press event for this awesome new product: Moisture White™ Shiso 2 in 1 Brightening Eye Cream, and I learnt so much about the amazing properties in this power-packed eye cream!

Also, check out that furoshiki (Japanese wrapping cloth) that we were taught to turn into a cute little carrier! :D

We got to bring home these products from the Moisture White™ Shiso range, and yes, there is an entire range of Moisture White™ Shiso products that will work hand-in-hand to complement one another!

One of the great things I love about The Body Shop is how it offers an entire range for each specific skin concern! And of course, if you're concerned about keeping your skin fair and luminous like I am, you should most definitely take a look at the Moisture White™ Shiso range :)

The Moisture White™ Shiso 2 in 1 Brightening Eye Cream is the newest product in the Moisture White™ Shiso  range, and also the one I'm most excited about!

Moisture White™ Shiso 2 in 1 Brightening Eye Cream
It contains Shiso Complex, which is made up of four potent ingredients: Shiso, Vitamin C, Liquorice and Community Fair Trade Organic Aloe Vera!

Random Trivia: Did you know that Shiso is that leaf that you always see on your sashimi plate at the Japanese restaurant (Teehee maybe that is why it looks familiar?) because it has many beneficial properties, including being anti-bacterial? 

Apart from being anti-bacterial, one of Shiso's most beneficial property is to target pigmentation! It is believed to reduce early melanin-making signals to help result in brighter and more luminous skin!

Together with the other ingredients, Vitamin C, Liquorice and Community Fair Trade Organic Aloe Vera, the Shiso Complex in the Moisture White™ Shiso 2 in 1 Brightening Eye Cream will help to reduce the appearance of dark pigmentation, deliver intensive hydration, and enhance the overall skin tone of your skin!

The texture of the Moisture White™ Shiso 2 in 1 Brightening Eye Cream is so lightweight and silky! It melts into the skin upon application, and is absorbed really fast. The formula is also super hydrating and feels soothing on the skin! The texture of some eye creams can be really heavy, and I usually stay away from such eye creams because I'm worried that they will be too oily and cause millia seeds around my eyes :O Thankfully, Moisture White™ Shiso 2 in 1 Brightening Eye Cream is not like that at all!

Moisture White™ Shiso 2 in 1 Brightening Eye Cream
The Moisture White™ Shiso 2 in 1 Brightening Eye Cream is so named because it combines TWO effective treatments to help solve your eye woes: the brightening power of naturally-derived ingredients, together with a unique Premium Micro-Circulating Applicator!

This metal applicator is really cool! And it is not just for show: this Premium Micro-Circulating Applicator totally works to reduce the puffiness around my eyes by stimulating blood circulation, to freshen tired and fatigued eyes!

It also makes the Moisture White™ Shiso 2 in 1 Brightening Eye Cream a breeze to apply on the eyes, all you have to do is to squeeze a small amount of product til it appears on the Micro-Circulating Applicator, then gently massage the formula into the skin around the eye area with the applicator!

I super LOVE 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!

I like how the shape of the applicator fits perfectly into the contours around my eyes! Using this applicator really feels like I'm getting my eye area massaged gently! :D 

It's really amazing, because my eyes feel less puffy straight away, and my eye area feel freshened and less tired immediately! A godsend in the mornings when I'm feeling so fatigued and sleepy from my late nights!

Moisture White™ Shiso 2 in 1 Brightening Eye Cream
Combined with the potent natural ingredients for skin-brightening found in the formula, Moisture White™ Shiso 2 in 1 Brightening Eye Cream will help to address the two biggest concerns of us Asian women, dark eye circles and puffy eyes! Perfect for me ;)

Moisture White™ Shiso 2 in 1 Brightening Eye Cream
I'm not the only one who loves this product, 77% of women who have tried Moisture White™ Shiso 2 in 1 Brightening Eye Cream also agree that their skin tone around the eyes is lighter! I'm sold! Gonna keep on using it to see more results!
