MISSHA Geum Sul Vitalizing Eye Cream & Micro Needle Patch

MISSHA Geum Sul Vitalizing Eye Cream & Micro Needle Patch is an anti-aging treatment for the gentle area under the eyes. It is very unique in use as you have to apply the under eye cream on your face first and only then the special patches with little tiny needles on them. These patches are meant to increase the circulation, tighten and brighten the skin under the eyes which they do!

My experience:

I can’t brag enough about how great this product is. First of all you get 10 ml tube of cream that is going to last you for a long time after you are finished with the patches. I’ve used only third of the tube for all of my patches and am still enjoying the amazing goodness and it’s benefits every evening before going to bed. With what is left in the tube I am still able to make it through the month with daily applications which is definitely worth it!

The entire system of the cream-patches-cream application has improved my under eye area tremendously. I’ve used the entire set up in 2 weeks and the area under my eyes is baby smooth and completely wrinkle free. And I did have plenty of crows feet to work with. The entire system is quite easy to apply, the wearing time of 30 minutes is also pretty much tolerable if you do it once or twice a week. Once I fell asleep with these on and woke up an hour later. I’m happy to report that there was no issue with that either. The patches adhere well to the skin under eyes but they do not stick there on permanently and the removal process in very gentle.

The needles on the patch are quite sharp to begin with but they do not prickle or penetrate the skin. There was no issue with hurting or any pain/discomfort whatsoever. After 10 minutes you feel that the points are starting to get softer and eventually they dissolve after releasing all of the hyaluronic acid.

As for the results. I’ve got incredible brightening effects that were visible for days after following the first application. Overall effects were cumulative and now, week after I’ve stopped using patches (because I’ve ran out of them) my skin is still bright and perky. I would definitely recommend these patches for anyone struggling with the crows feet and dark circles underneath the eye area. I’m putting these on my Christmas wishlist. Hey, Santa , wink-wink 😉

Summary:

Pros:
+ Sulfate, alcohol, paraben free formula
+ Contains loads of skin brightening and anti-aging ingredients
+ Great fit and adherence of the patches for the area under the eyes

Cons:
– Price is  quite steep for 4 patch sets
– The amount of cream is more than what you need for using with the patches
– Packaging haz zero description in English.
