This is part 1 of my attempt to rush finish reviewing all the Hanyul products before they are no longer available on all online shops. Are you tired me talking about Hanyul? Sorry, but the brand has never disappointed thus far. This particular eye cream is housed in one of my favorite packaging designs of late. The blue and red color combination is just beautiful, and it’s made of glass! Appearances aside, though, it’s the content that matters. Sadly, I have say this product is not all that impressive.
The cream contains schizophyllum commune extract, which is type of mushroom that can support liver, immune health, blood pressure and cardiovascular health when taken orally. As for its purported skincare benefits, I can only lift from a Sulwhasoo website (here). It claims that the mushroom extract creates “a thin moisture layer on the skin’s surface to ensure long lasting hydration effect”. From the rest of the ingredients list, I can only identify the Asian medicine angelica sinensis. If you are well versed in Korean, help yourselves with the ingredients list below!
The texture is indeed light, easily spread and absorbed. It is not a gel–more like somewhere between gelatin and cream texture, which is quite interesting.
Despite its lofty claims, I have observed no difference in my under-eye area after using it for two months. More than ever it seems to reinforce the claim that you don’t need a separate eye moisturizer. Any of the other creams under the brand would have worked great as a moisturizer for the eye area.
So the verdict is favorite packaging, least favorite content from the Hanyul brand.
