How to Use

Take ample quantity with a spatula or your finger and gently apply all around the eye in a tapping motion. You can press your skin around the eye for better absorption. Avoid rubbing.

Packaging & Texture

The whole Calendula range by The Face Shop has got an upgrade and hell it got cuter. I really love the retro vibe it has now. The Face Shop essential moisture eye cream comes in a small glass bottle with a golden cap. The glass bottle is very cute in design with a matte finish. The cream is very thick and moisturising. It is slightly milky yellow tinted in colour if you know what I mean. Although thick, it gets absorbed pretty fast adding a layer of moisture around the eye. The fragrance is slightly herbal floral kind.

My Take

Eye cream is very essential in my skincare routine. I was using Innisfree Jeju Pomegranate eye serum until now which was also my very first eye cream or moisturiser before this one. After reading that it also helps in tiredness and I wanted a thicker eye cream so I got my hands on this one. It is really good, very thick and creamy with a smooth consistency. The fragrance doesn't bother me at all as well. I take about a pea size for both of eye and apply it first in dabbing motion and gently tap my fingers around the eye area to absorb it well. The cream is absorbed into the skin perfectly and keeps the skin around eye moisturised for hours. I have to work on the laptop for long hours due to my job and blogging so this helps in reducing the puffiness and tiredness. This is a good eye cream for starting out.


  • Very thick and moisturising
  • Helps in the soothing eye, reducing puffiness

  • Glass bottle might break if dropped.
