I bought this product last November in Hong Kong and had already thrown the box.  I don't remember how much I paid, but the price selling in Sasa for $6.5 U.S. is not bad.

The weather in Hong Kong was hot during my stay and my skin was dehydrated due to the 16 hours flight and pollution/environment change. I picked up this product just because of the low price and thinking to give it a try.  Even though it didn't work, it wouldn't hurt for such a low price.

Scent: none

Texture: Clear slight viscous gel

It blends well on skin and feels sticky after blending.  After massaging for a while, the gel is totally absorbed. Then, I apply an eye cream.

For your reference: My eye area is pretty dry.  After washing face, I have some tightening feel around my eye area.  I also live in a dry climate of Toronto (AC in summer, heater in winter). 

It claims for removing eye swells and wrinkles.  I don't have these conditions, therefore, I couldn't make any comment on it.  As for the fine lines and dark circles, I haven't seen any improvement.  I guess that I don't expect too much from this product (with such a low price), without getting the condition worse, the product is maintaining my skin well. It does relieve certain level of eye fatigue for providing additional moisture under eye area.  It leaves the skin smoother and more hydrating. 

I probably won't purchase this product again as I am always looking to try different products.  Most importantly, I need to look for an eye serum which has more hydrating & anti-aging power (i.e. hyaluronic acid) for coming winter.  I am still researching which product I should buy, and I am thinking about to get SkinCeutical Hydrating B5 gel.  If you have ever used Skinceutical Hydrating B5 or any good recommendation, feel free to drop me a line.

To conclude this, this product could be beneficial for people who are under 25 year old or live in a humid hot weather or have oily skin, just looking for additional hydration for the eye area.


Marcell Cleaning Cloths Review

It claims to gently cleanse and remove face and eye make-up without leaving a greasy after-feel.

Hypo-allergenic-Perfume free-ophthalmologist tested


Tested the cleaning cloths using the following makeup items:

  • Kiss Me Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner
  • Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick
  • Lancome Lipstick
  • Maybelline waterproof mascara

After the first wipe:

After few more wipes:

The skin feels refreshed and cleaned without using water.  Marcell Cleaning Cloths is definitely one of my necessities during travel or someday I want to skip the cleaning oil/water step.  I also love the packaging as it's light and convenience.  The seal is pretty good for preventing any moisture loss.
