Naruko Majoram and Lavendar Brightening Eye Cream Product Review

Hey yall :)

I'm back with a review!

Last year I ordered a wad of Naruko products since that was the *it* thing to try out. And I'm now just getting to reviewing them xD. I have already reviewed the Naruko Total Defense Make-Up Removing Mousse which you can click HERE to check it out and I reviewed Naruko Narcissus Total Defense AA Foaming Wash which you can click HERE to see it.

I've been on the search for good eye cream and so far I haven't found any perfect ones to brighten my dark circles. I don't have too much of a problem with dryness under my eyes but I still like to keep them moisturized to prevent wrinkles in the future. Sooo lets see if this product lived up to its "brightening eye cream" label.

I like the simple packaging. It's slim and lightweight so that you can slip this in any travel back for your skincare

Hygienic squeeze tip :) I never over-dispense the product since the tip gives good control

Here are the ingredients list :)

And this is what it looks like of course after you squeeze some out


My thoughts:

I have not seen any brightening effects on my dark circles. I have seen reviews before how this has worked well, but maybe my dark circles are stubborn. However, it does provide just enough moisture for my eyes. It absorbs easily and quickly, and spreads easily as well. It isn't thick, but is still creamy. This is a good eye cream for everyday moisturizing under the eyes, but don't get your hopes up to get rid of your dark circles. Because this product is so hard to obtain (I have to get it online), I don't find this product worth repurchasing because I know there are other drugstore eye creams that can moisturize just the same as this. And btw, if you have really dry undereyes, this will definitely *not* moisturize enough for you. I have combination oily skin and this moisturizes just right for me.

I will use it up for now, as it is still a pretty good eye cream, but once I'm done with it, which I actually am quite near the end of the tube, I'll move on to test the Magnolia brightening and firming eye cream in the pot.

I know usually my reviews are more in depth than this but there really wasn't much else to say other than getting to the point that this doesn't live up to its name.

Cost: $16USD
Overall Product Rating: 3/5 (wasn't outstanding, but still is good enough because it moisturizes)
Repurchase: No

I really had hopes for this product :( and overall a lot of Naruko products haven't worked miracles on me like it has for most other people; so my overall thoughts are that if you have problematic skin like me, where you have tons of acne problems, stubborn scars and hyperpigmentation, then these products won't make a drastic change. I think this entire line will do well for those with more normal skin.

Hope that helps yall :)

See yall later!

July 2011 Photoshoot Pictures

Hey yall!

Finally got all 33 pictures watermarked. There were 350+ photos in total that I had to sift through so it took a while.

All photo credits go to my guyfriend, whom I will not name for privacy reasons, and also I blocked out his face in the last photos for privacy as well. But to my friend, thank you for doing this favor of taking our pictures! :)

These are long overdue in post, as all my future posts will be xD I'm behind in posts since I pretty much did not blog anything Fall semester.

My friend is with me in these pictures. She's absolutely gorgeous. In the "first set" of pictures in the garden, I'm the one in the black, she is in the red. In the "second set" of pictures at the IBM/Williams Tower Waterwall, I'm in the white and she is in black.

Anyway, without further adieu, here are the pictures :)
