This is something I purchase in HK when I was there in summer 09.
Ettusais is a Shiseodo brand specialising in Adult acne problem. If you have problem with oil control in humid and hot climate, or just in general, Ettusais is definitely for you. A friend who went to Fukuoka with me went all crazy with Ettusais. I was rather surprise how popular Ettusais is among girls between 20-30.
In Japan, Ettusais is a drug store brand, but in HK it is a counter brand. So if you love samples. Ettusais in HK is absolutely brilliant. I think I walked away with at least 20 samples with my purchase. (and yet to use them, haha)
Eye zone massaing essence
as a eye serum at night.
to fight dark cirlce (it says nth about lines ok?)
What it claims to do:
help blood circulation around eye area
also kick dark circle away with dry fine lines
15g (rather standard...)
nearly 40 USD
the essence comes with a pump. I always think how company can produce an illusion that 15g is actually a lot
How it looks like in real life. It has some shimmering properties in the clear gel
Ok I’m 28. I know i’m old. I know according to the majority of cosmetic company, I shall be crazy over anti aging products. Hey, I do look 18 ok? so getting a dark circle fighter product totally ok.
but... this is rather disappointing. My dark circle is definitely there. It didn’t work the miracle
It is rather drying as well (for UK autumn climate) and I need something more moisturising.
When the SA tried it on me, I like the quickly absorb texture. But... I can’t really use this as a base for the makeup because it is not helping to moisturising at all.
My boots No.7 perfect and protect is doing the job.
So finaly verdict? don’t waste your money on this.
If you want something to fight back dark circle. the Shiseido White Lucent Eye treatment works much much better
Eye Zone tinted color essence
Now now.. this is a really interesting product
Official introduction and product use:
No alcohol, no fragrance, no Oil elements and skin sensitivity taste
Have skin tone adjustment, can adjust dark circle and blemish to natural skin tone
What it is?
According to my SA, it is like a eye cream but tinted. So it is a skin care routine rather than makeup, which is good for your eyes
4g (very standard.. but I think Boi-ing is around 7g)
The actual product. Very convinient to put in handbag
It is like other pen-concealer, it has a brush head to apply on the eye area
Trying on my hand, do you see I have the cross scar? Courtesy to Mui Chu.
Going to use this eye essence to cover it up
Applied on the scar area, it has lightened up the scar, but yet to cover
this is the first ever eye concealer that is not really a makeup product. We have BB cream, tinted moisturiser which is suppose to be a skincare routine rather than makeup.
now we have Ettusais eye essence that is like a tinted moisturiser, not too harmful to the skin.
I like the idea of it. I don’t need to think too much if I didn’t take this off at night. Hey, it is eye essence, moisturising yet cover up my blemish. The texture is quite smooth, but as it is primarily to lighten up the area of your dark circle, I don’t think it helps with acne scar or blemish. It is purely for eye area and that’s it.
I probably will buy a 2nd tube of it as I like the idea. I like how it applies using the brush.
So, if you are interested, you can safely buy this.
