My love for Korean cosmetics is well known and these holidays were filled with various gifts and orders from Korean beauty sites. Therefore, I am delighted that I can write my opinion on the first of the two Mizon products that I received for review. Mizon Collagen Power Firming Eye Cream is suitable for the delicate undereye area showing signs of aging. Also, it is great news that Mizon cosmetics are now accessible to women worldwide. Since I loved all Mizon products that I tried up to now, please read on for further review.
Mizon Collagen Power Firming Eye Cream is targeted for wrinkles around the eyes and contains highly concentrated collagen. It is formulated without artificial colors, fragrance or parabens. This cream is made for saggy and sensitive skin around the eyes. Collagen Power Firming Eye Cream reduces wrinkles around the eyes and improves the elasticity of the skin leaving the skin revitalized and smooth. Copper peptides regenerate damaged skin around the eyes, simultaneously creating synergy with collagen and elastin to make the skin healthier and younger looking. 42% of highly concentrated marine collagen tightens the skin. Organic argan oil, adenosine and hyaluronic acid mutually improve skin elasticity and moisture retention. In short, Mizon Collagen Power Firming Eye Cream forms a protective layer on the damaged skin around the eyes, provides enough nutrients, as well as elasticity and moisture. Price for 25 ml (which is almost double than the usual packaging) is app. 20 EUR and you can buy it here or here.

Mizon Collagen Power Firming Eye Cream is packaged in a cardboard box containing a compact metallic purple jar and a plastic spatula.
Jar itself is protected with foil and although I quite like the spatula that I apply the cream with, I would definitely prefer to see this cream packaged in a tube, which would be better for protecting the precious ingredients.
There is however a version of this eye cream packaged in a 10 ml tube, so it might be worth checking out. Although it is called cream, the texture is more like a translucent, pale-yellowish gel-balm. Usually the gels are oil-free and extremely fast absorbing, but the main advantage of this undereye cream is that it combines the best of the gel and nourishing balm. Mizon Collagen Power Firming Eye Cream is quickly absorbed into skin, but it is also as nourishing as it is emollient. You only need a very small amount, approximately half of a pea, which is sufficient for the area under both eyes and a bit will also remain to pat on the upper eyelids. I very much like the fact that it has no smell and I believe that all undereye creams should follow this example.
The texture is very much like a mixture of oil and gel, light and emollient, but you will have to wait a minute or two until it is completely absorbed. Immediately, you will feel a sense of comfort and your eye area will feel nourished and smooth. I love to pat it around my eyes and wait a few minutes for my skin to absorb it before I apply my day or night cream. In addition to the nourishment, you will feel that it protects the skin barrier and locks in moisture, protecting the skin from damaging effects. Of course, there is no cream in the world that can actually erase the wrinkles around our eyes, but what we can do, and what this cream does excellently, is that it nourishes dry and dehydrated undereye area so that small wrinkles look more plump and reduced. It had no effect on my (hereditary) dark circles, but I noticed that my eyes were a bit less puffy and that it made the skin more elastic.
What I liked:
- that it is formulated without parabens, artificial colors or fragrance
- gel-balm texture
- that it is suitable for the most sensitive eyes
What I did not like:
- jar packaging
After a great experience with Mizon Enjoy Vital-up Time Anti Wrinkle Sheet Mask, my sensitive eyes perfectly responded to this eye cream and I think it would be ideal for anyone who has problems with dry and sensitive area around their eyes, especially if you are experiencing signs of aging. It will also suit younger people who want a nourishing, yet non-greasy eye cream that is a good base for eye make-up. All in all, Mizon Collagen Power Firming Eye Cream offers an excellent ratio between the quantity, quality and price. Have you tried anything from Mizon cosmetics and what Mizon products would you like to try? My eye is on the Mizon essences, I want them all! :)
