Review: iUNIK Propolis Vitamin Eye Cream
I’ve been eyeing this eye cream for a while. 👀 Thought I’d pick one up just to see if it’s any good. I’ve used a couple of serums from this brand here and there and thought I would give the eye cream a try. The purpose of this eye cream is to help improve skin texture and skin elasticity. It contains Propolis Extract, Hippophae Rhamnoides Fruit Extract, and Idebenone. These ingredients help provide moisture to the skin, brighten the skin, improve dark under eye circles, and prevent dullness. The majority of iUNIK skin care products I have used have been moisturizing and full of skin-loving ingredients. This eye cream seems like it would work very well on the skin around my eyes just based on the ingredients alone. It looks like it could be a good product. Well, is it a good product? Did it work? So I was able to finish a whole tube of iUNIK Propolis Vitamin Eye Cream within 4 months. I can’t believe it either. Yay! 🎉 After 4 months of using this eye cream, here are my thoughts on it!
This product is a cream. It feels rich and thick but doesn’t feel too heavy on the skin. It’s soft and smooth. Glides under the eyes smoothly, gently, and effortlessly. It provides intense moisture around the eyes. I love it for that. I always end my skin care routine with this eye cream because it provides so much freaking moisture. The skin around my eyes love it. So this eye cream is very gentle on the skin. I didn’t experience any redness or irritation. It doesn’t absorb quickly, but it eventually does. All you need to do is gently pat the product into the skin. Let the rest sink into the skin. After application, the product soothes, moisturizes, and really truly does help to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. It won’t get rid of them, but it helps to diminish them by providing a good amount of moisture to the skin. It’s all about the moisture that it provides! It does an awesome job at that! My under eye area is never left dehydrated with this eye cream. I’m in loooveeee!! 🥰
On the product, it does state that this eye cream can be used on the eyes and the face. I haven’t tried it on my face. I feel that the texture of the product is too heavy for my facial skin. I’ll probably end up breaking out in acne if I used it on my face. So I’ve only used it as an eye cream and neck cream. I prefer to use it only as an eye cream because the tube is pretty small. It’s only 30 mL. Given the size, it’s more of an eye cream than a neck/face cream. As an eye cream, the results have been pretty good so far, and I’ve tried so many eye creams out there. It’s so rich and creamy. It gives my under eyes so much moisture that it’s been lacking from other skin care products. Even though it did a great job at providing moisture, I haven’t noticed any brightening on my dark under eye circles. I can’t tell if it did. All I know is that it has helped with moisturizing, fine lines, and wrinkles. Just because of that, I can see myself using this for a very long time. This eye cream is going to remain a staple until something else better comes along. Can’t wait to open a new tube! 🍾
A new tube of iUNIK Propolis Vitamin Eye Cream! It’s sealed! 🙂
A drop of eye cream. 💧
Pros & Cons
- Very moisturizing on the skin around the eyes
- Can be used as an eye cream or/and face cream (if you don’t have clog-prone skin)
- Helps smooth out fine lines and wrinkles
- Doesn’t brighten the eye area. Well, I haven’t noticed anything yet.
It looks like iUNIK Propolis Vitamin Eye Cream made it into my skin care routine! 🤗 This is one of my favorite eye creams so far. It’s rich, moisturizing, and helps with fine lines and wrinkles. No brightening effect on my dark under eye circles yet. Just not yet, lol. I hope I’ll see something with the next tube I open. But I’ve been looking for something that improves my under eyes for so long. Look no further! This stuff is amazing. For the price, it makes it even better. It’s even better than Clinique All About Eyes, and it’s more affordable. One downside when it comes to this product is that it’s not vegan. It does contain Propolis Extract. Otherwise, it works on my skin. I’m going to continue to use it until then. I highly recommend trying this out if you need a very moisturizing eye cream. You won’t be let down!

Review: iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil
I’ve taken up using cleansing oils again. I have a bunch of them, but I decided to start off with iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil. When I first purchased this cleansing oil, I wanted something lightweight, refreshing, and something that removes my makeup (especially my eye makeup) and sunscreen properly. Something with better oils in it too. Other cleansing oils that I have tried contained mineral oil, which my skin didn’t seem to like. I also had a hard time finding a cleansing oil that actually removes my eyeliner and mascara. They claimed to remove makeup, but my eye makeup didn’t budge much, and I didn’t want to tug at my eye area. I shouldn’t have to, right? If the product truly works to remove all makeup. Remember to be as gentle as possible with your skin! That’s very important, especially when a product doesn’t get the job done right, and you get very frustrated with it. ✨ So I haven’t found one that can remove my eye makeup successfully. Let’s see if this one can. 🙂 I’ve had iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil for about 4 months now. I was using it consistently, but I stopped using it for a while. I just picked up using it again because I have it. I didn’t want to waste it. Now here are my thoughts on this cleansing oil after a few weeks into using it again.
This cleansing oil feels lightweight on the skin. It’s not too thin in consistency or too thick. Just right. It has a flowery smell to it. I’m not too fond of the smell. The scent is most likely from the Calendula Flower Extract. Along with Calendula Flower Extract, this cleansing oil also contains oils, such as…
- sunflower seed oil
- canola oil
- jojoba seed oil
- macadamia seed oil
- ylang ylang oil
- chamomile oil
These oils help to break down makeup, sunscreen, residue, dirt, debris, or whatever is on the skin. The oils in this product caught my eye. It looks pretty good compared to the other cleansing oils I have used before. There’s no mineral oil in it. 🙌🏻 And as for all cleansing oils, they contain surfactants to help aid the removal process. With this cleansing oil, I use about 1-2 pumps of product. I lean towards 2 pumps most of the time. I have a hard time moving the oil across my face with just 1 pump of product. It gently removes makeup on my face just fine. But when I try to remove my eye makeup (eyeliner, mascara) with this cleansing oil, it was very difficult to remove it. It didn’t remove all of it. I still had eyeliner stuck on my eyelids. My mascara was still on my lashes. Uh Oh. What a bummer. I wanted a cleansing oil that removes my eye makeup, but this one also failed to do just that. I mean, it does soothe my skin and moisturizes it. I haven’t had any skin irritations or an allergic reaction to it. No breakouts from it since I follow up with a facial cleanser to ensure my skin is left spotless and clean. But it didn’t remove all traces of makeup as it claims to do. Hmm, this cleansing oil really let me down. One of the many things (most important of them all to me) I wanted this cleansing oil to do was to remove my stubborn eye makeup, which it failed to do. I love how gentle this cleansing oil is, but it didn’t completely do what it’s supposed to do. So what I did was mix it with some of my organic jojoba oil. And there you have it, finally, all of my makeup has been removed including my eye makeup. From this experience, I don’t think iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil is right for me. I don’t see the point in continuing to use it if it doesn’t remove all of my makeup. It looks like a no-go product. I’m on the search for something new…
Pros & Cons
- Gentle on the skin
- Removes face makeup just fine
- Doesn’t contain mineral oil
- Can’t stand the flowery smell of this product
- Doesn’t remove eye makeup (eyeliner, mascara) properly
So iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil has a ton of good reviews. My experience was not too bad. It removed my face makeup, sunscreen, dirt, debris, and all of that stuff, but it failed to remove what I wanted it to remove the most, which is my eyeliner and mascara. I don’t even put that much on, lol. Still, having a ton of eye makeup on shouldn’t hinder the product from removing it completely. It just shows that it’s incapable of removing tough eye makeup. And it claims to be able to. I still had leftovers of my eye makeup on my eyelids and lashes after cleansing my skin with this cleansing oil. It just didn’t work. Out of all of the cleansing oils I have, this one was my favorite in terms of ingredients. The consistency of the oil was just about right. Much better than the other ones I have used. From this experience, I won’t purchase it again, but I can see how some people might like it. It’s a decent product. I just need something that takes off my eye makeup without having to put a lot of pressure on my eyes. Since it didn’t work, I’m on to the next.
