You see, people tend to taken things for granted. I, myself also without realising it tend to do it over and over again :lol:, and this is one of those times where I put something for granted.
A while ago, I said that the Innisfree Eco Science Eye Cream isn’t worth the hype, that it didn’t reduce my dark under eye, etc, etc. However, after I realised that my dark under eye area probably run in the family genes and I already owned it since a child anyway (my eye area always been that pigmented, that my kindergarten friends always accused me of wearing eye shadow in my childhood days, lol); I realised that it is not easy to “make things better” when my initial conditions wasn’t that great to begin with.
And after I testing out another eye cream for a few months, which is the NUXE Prodigieux Eye Contour, I realised the fact that, well, the Innisfree one work just the same if not better with twice the amount of size at the same price.

This product have so much hype in the past for reducing fine lines, although nowadays I’ve never seen even one review from this particular eye cream. It has pretty thick consistency, so if you’re not careful enough and put it too much in the day time, it could ruin your eye makeup. It works pretty good for your eye, moisturised it well for sure, and can de-puff your under eye. However, I could not say that it works well in terms of reducing fine lines and dark under eye; but one thing for sure, if you’re looking for a descent eye cream that moisturised your under eye, look no further, because it’s definitely works better than the NUXE’s one.

I noticed that NUXE Prodigieux Eye Contour have similar packaging with Innisfree Eye Cream, but I don’t want to research further on which brand have these kind of packaging first, tho, because there are tons of product that have these kind of packaging for their moisturisers :lol:. OK so, my very first impression towards this product is that I found that the scent of this eye cream is totally off-putting. I found that the scent was similar with “older people” skin care scent that my Grandma used to have. But now that I am in my third month of using it, I found that the scent is less noticeable nowadays. Well, I probably get used to it.
Things that I love the most from NUXE Prodigieux Eye Contour is the fact that we could track the amount of the product left from the packaging, while you have to guess with the Innisfree’s packaging.
The texture of this eye cream is lighter than the Innisfree one, really good for day time use, I would say. It does moisturize well, and work great to de-puff eye area; however at the similar price point (NUXE is $25 while Innisfree at around KRW 28000), I think it’s a no brainer to choose Innisfree Eco Science Eye Cream because it has 30ml amount of product, while you only got 15ml of products with the NUXE’s one. But, despite the price and all, I think for people that have dry and/or mature skin out there, it will better for them to choose Innisfree, because of the thicker consistency.
