[Review] Etude House Honey Cera Priming Eye Serum

Sunday, January 22, 2017

I previously made a small review on this eye cream when I reviewed the Honey Cera Lip Treatment (and some other sample products from the Honey Cera line). As I mentioned in the review, I really liked the eye cream and could't wait to get the real thing. I finally got one and I've been using it for about a month now. I can't wait to tell you more so let's get right into the review.

Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored review. I bought this cream with my own money and everything written in this post is my 100% honest opinion.


What it is
A priming Eye Serum that enhances dark circles under the eyes with its whitening function for a smooth and brightened eye area.

How to apply
After the last step of skincare, use applicator to gently apply a certain amount onto eye area and massage around eye area, softly patting to finish up.

1. Use only as directed.
2. Avoid storing in high/low temperatures or in areas exposed to direct sunlight.
3. Stop using if it causes any allergic reaction or any problems arising.


First Impression
When I first tried this cream as a sample, I was confused by the name 'eye priming serum'. Is it an eye cream or a primer? It turns our that it's actually (kind of) both! This is an eye cream that will supposedly improve your dark circles and smooth the eye area. The cream is also very light-weight and absorbs quickly into the skin, which is why I think that it's also a great product to use on your eyes before applying makeup.


The application is really smooth and easy. I usually squeeze out a little bit of product onto the 'platform' and dab it onto my eye area with the applicator and then I gently spread it back and forth. The cold applicator glides easily over my eye area and it feels very cool and soothing. When I notice that the applicator gets warm (from the warmth of my skin), I finish off by gently patting the leftover product into my eye area. One thing that completely amazed me is that the applicator stays ice cold even if you keep it in a warm place. I don't know the science behind it, but the applicator is just ice cold every time I use. This is great since cold reduces swelling and puffiness.


So how about the results? I have really dark circles and some fine lines around my eyes, and I've tried so many eye creams in an attempt to counter these problems but I've never found anything that helped much. However, after using this eye serum every day for a month, I can actually see that my dark circles have improved. It's not a dramatic difference, but it's definitely noticeable to me. My dark circles are not as dark as before and right after applying the serum my eye area just looks brighter and healthier. It hasn't done much for my fine lines but one thing that I noticed is that my eye area definitely looks a bit firmer and healthier! The cold applicator might have played a big part in that result.

My Recommendation
I recommend this product to those who have dark circles and are beginning to see some early signs of ageing around the eyes. In other words, if you're in your late teens or twenties but already have dark circles and some fine lines, this might be a great product for you. I'm not sure how well it will work if you have really dark circles or deep wrinkles around your eyes. In my experience, it doesn't magically make all your flaws around your eyes disappear, but if you're like me, you will definitely see an improvement.

Yes, I will definitely repurchase this eye cream. I really love to use this in my morning skin care routine before applying my makeup. It's so lightweight and absorbs quickly which is why it's so great to use during that time. I also love the smell and most importantly it has actually improved the overall look of my eye area. On another note, since this cream is so lightweight I don't think it gives my eye area enough moisture during the night, so even though I love this cream I will get another eye cream to use at night.

I hope this was helpful to you! Thank you so much for reading and bye for now, lovelies.
