TFS-eye cream

I was curious how The Face Shop compared to Skin Food as both of them are from Korea which have similar market positioning, as well as Missha, Etude, Dodo club…etc.


I picked up the best-selling Nutritious Effect eye cream to try because I think Korea mid-priced brands make good value eye cream after I had tried the Skin Food’s eye cream. This is weighted 30ml, retails for RM89.90, pretty budget-friendly I should say. The anti-aging eye cream includes plenty anti-aging ingredients so I really expect something from it.


After 6 months usage, day and night, sadly to say, I didn’t notice any improvement of my fine lines despite its moisturizing capability. The effect of moisturizing effect vanished after few hours like other eye cream I used in the past. However, fine line does look less obvious when moisture properly.


The eye cream neither irritated my eye nor caused milia seed, overall I am satisfied with this eye cream but nothing amazing. Personally I prefer Skin Food Black Raspberry eye cream which has better value, at least it de-puff my eyes bag slightly and more moisturing in term of texture.
