Naruko Rose & Snow Fungus Classic Hydrating and Magnolia Brightening and Firming Night Eye Gelly

Posted on: December 17, 2012

Naruko eye gelly2

I was pleased with the lovely aroma of Naruko Rose & Snow Fungus series and willing to try more products from the series. I also purchased Magnolia Brightening Night Eye Gelly, hence I was using both eye gels concurrently. When I was dissatisfied with the hydrating result of Rose series, I switched to this Magnolia eye jelly.

At the time of reviewing these products, the Taiwan Magnolia Brightening series has been upgraded with additional Peptides ingredients and named under EX series.

Rose & Snow Fungus range is enriched with Phytoferulin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Vitamin B5, Snow fungus, Demaveil, Ceramide, Vitamin A, amino, essential oils. The hydrating result was good, skin felt softer next morning but did nothing much to pores. I applied thick layer when skin was very dehydrated, on the other hand, a thin layer would be just enough when weather was humid.

I also asked a sample of the Night Gelly due to curiosity…… I understood they were different literally, however I wondered was there any significant difference between eye jelly and night jelly despite they are aiming different areas.

I like the night gelly to be my eye cream but Oops…  the foundation caked badly

Apparently I couldn’t distinguish them. They have similar gel consistency which I wasn’t savvy enough to tell their thickness…and they also smelt identically. I used the eye jelly as facial sleeping mask too and that worked fine for my skin. Wait, it did cause few clog pores when I applied an extremely thick layer but that only happened once a while, hence I guess my skin wasn’t congested badly that can still tolerate the suffocating gel film nightly.

This was first time I got to agree with other regarding the great result of sleeping mask. I wasn’t impressed with Laneige sleeping mask before, however I had better result with Naruko sleeping mask which I attributed the credit to thicker gel film of Naruko sleeping mask.

Overall Rose & Snow Fungus Classic Hydrating Night Eye Gelly is passable in my opinion after I compared it with Naruko Taiwan Magnolia Brightening and Firming Night Eye Gelly. The main point is … if you purely ask for hydrating, perhaps with additional aromatics rose therapy.

Naruko eye gelly1

Magnolia Brightening and Firming is all-in-one collection targeting early mature skin. It claims to help lessening wrinkles, dullness and slackening dry skin. It contains Phytoferullin, plant extracts, Magnolia extracts, Hyaluronic Acid, Arbutin and Vitamin C.

I personally more pleased with aroma of Rose series, however, I found Magnolia series suited my aging skin better. Magnolia has slightly richer consistency than Rose Eye Gelly, thus it able to iron out my eye wrinkles much better, also great for facial sleeping mask too. My thirsty skin turned into moist and firm stage with just few nights! For that practical yet vital reason, my skin was preferred wearing Magnolia rather than Rose though my nose loved Rose more.

Not only happy with the exceptional moisturizing result, the affordable price also important. Another goody is, I think it contains “better” ingredient compared to Rose’s eye jelly because the Magnolia eye jelly turned slightly yellowish after a period (picture attached below), whereas the Rose eye jelly maintained its original colour under the same storage condition. In my understanding, only natural ingredient will get rotting easily and only active ingredient has real anti-aging value.

Thanks Naruko for keeping the prices affordable. I’m now sleeping mask convert and I actually purchased few sleeping masks (not eye jelly) from Naruko again. Sleeping mask (50ml) has bigger volume than eye jelly (30ml), guess it might be working as good as eye jelly but with lower price? Well, I can tell after I try the sleeping masks in next few months.
