Secret Key Multi Cell Night Repair Eye Cream – Review
We all want our under eye area to remain looking youthful, healthy and plump. So eye creams and gels are a staple in our skincare routine. I only recently started noticing that I should probably start paying more attention to my under eyes. Sleepless nights, work and Kdramas are the reason behind my dry and tired looking eye area. The skin around our eyes is the thinnest layer of skin on our entire body, naturally they are the most sensitive as well. This is why finding the right night cream that suits your skin’s needs is important.
I’ve tried a few eye creams before that I honestly think did nothing good for my skin, so I started to invest in more expensive brands and still saw no significant difference. At my age my main concern is not about preventing wrinkles, but rather keeping the area looking healthy an plump. The easiest way to do that is by improving the moisture levels of my eye area. The one eye cream that has been working very well for me over the past few months is the Secret Key Multi Cell Night Repair Eye Cream.
Packaging wise, it reminds me of the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair eye cream. In fact, even the Secret Key Multi Cell Night Repair Ampoule’s packaging is almost identical to that of the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex. Then again, Secret Key’s design and packaging team isn’t really creative when it came to product packaging and design :p, but I guess the product is what counts right?
The Secret Key Multi Cell Night Repair Eye Cream comes in a very small tub that contains 15g of eye cream. On first sight, it really does seem small and costly when you pay 13.64 USD, but this little one will stay on your vanity for a good 2-3 months 😀
Tomato callus culture extract, grape callus culture extract, green tea callus culture extract, bifida fermentation dissolution, pasqueflower extract, z.piperitum fruit extract
Based on the ingredients, the presence of the plant extracts help in protecting the skin against dryness and offers enriched moisture and nourishment. It is also free of mineral oil, color, benzophenone, phenoxyethanol, paraben.
Texture wise, is very light, and seems like a hybrid of a gel and lotion. I find that the formula is superb. It easily glides on the skin and isn’t greasy in the slightest. You’d only need the smallest amount for both your eyes, however, it’s moisturizing power is still great, leaving your eye area feeling soft, smooth and over time looking healthy as well.
How to apply eye creams to get the most of the product? Take a small amount at a time and gently pat it on your under eye area like you are playing the piano. The warmth of your fingers will help your skin absorb more of the products and do you good!
Once you’ve added the Night Repair Eye Cream to your daily morning and night routine you’d start to notice an overall improvement in the condition of your eye area. The cream really sinks in to the skin and moisturizes it from deep within leaving the skin plump, moisturized and looking brighter than before. I can’t say much in terms of how well it helps with preventing / minimizing the appearance of wrinkles as I don’t have any at this point, so can’t really do a before and after comparison in this area.
Because of its extremely light and non-greasy formula, you can also apply the eye cream right before applying makeup and you’d notice a significant difference in the way your makeup applies, in particular the concealer. There will be no dry patches, uneven application of concealer or smudging of makeup in your under eye area.
Overall, I would rate this a 4/5 as I really do like it and would probably repurchase it again in the future. I’m interested in trying out other eye creams and compare to see if this still remains a favorite or not :p
