Pure Heals by Nature Village Ginseng Berry Eye Lift Patch Review

There are all kinds of masks nowadays. There's your everyday run-of-the-mill face masks that you can DIY or buy from your local drugstore, the ever so popular sheet masks for quick face rejuvenation, lip masks, cheek masks, eye patches and even feet masks! 

The  eye mask patch or eye patch mask, however you want to put it, are the best on giving those tired looking eyes of yours a boost! 

Today's feature focus review is on the Pure Heals by Nature Village Ginseng Berry Eye Loft Patch. It is a hydrogel type of mask that is especially made for the the thin and sensitive eye area. It is made of ginseng berry which is the red fruit of the Panax ginseng plant. Panax ginseng root has been widely used herbal remedy for ages and has a lot of known benefits but the ginseng berry has been gaining popularity recently because it has been found to have higher concentration of amino acids and proteins than the roots. Ginseng berry is also rich in saponin, a component that helps the skin become healthy and firm. Other ingredients are rose extracts (anti aging and rich in antioxidants), chamomile flower (calming), squalene (an essential Omega 2 oil that can naturally be produced in the body and is a strong antioxidant), betaine (an amino acid that can also be normally found in the body; anti-aging and anti-inflammatory) and adenosine (anti-aging and anti-wrinkle). 

As per ingredient, we can highly note that this Ginseng Berry aims to improve skin elasticity especially underneath the eyes, provide rehydration and moisturization, brighten, revitalize and provide needed skin nutrition that would slow down aging and reduce wrinkle formation. It is also great to note that this product is not tested on animals. 

The box packaging is mostly in Korean but pertinent product information is in English so you would definitely know what you're getting. The jar is very pretty with a copper mirrored lid. I intentionally photographed it with the camera showing so you would see the mirrored effect. 

The hydrogel patch is clear and slightly thinner than other hydrogel (sheet) masks that I have tried and also in comparison to the SNP Bird's Nest Aqua Eye Patch. It has a great scent - fresh, clean and faintly of mixed berries. There's no herbal ginseng scent to it which I first thought it would have. 

To use, apply underneath the eyes after washing the face and applying essence and leave on for 20-30 minutes. For photo purposes, I removed the day's makeup with  makeup wipe and just popped this underneath my eyes for 30 minutes while I did some badly needed room cleaning. The patch feels cool and tingly and it instantly made me feel wide awake. Even after 30 minutes of use the patch did not dry out and I noticed that it significantly reduced the puffiness, the area is well-hydrated and slightly firm. Slight tightness and hydration indicates that it is a good anti-wrinkle product.

I thoroughly enjoyed this eye patch. It's great for spa nights, waking up tired or bloated, and for prepping your face before glamming up for an event.

I'm not entirely sure how many pieces of hydrogel patches are in the jar but it is a lot so you can definitely enjoy using them once or twice a week without fear of it running out too quickly. It also comes with a spatula to help you take each patch. The patches are drenched with the essence so be careful not to spill the jar! 

The only thing that I didn't quite like with this product is it's price. It retails for 54,000 won which is equivalent to $54. It's really expensive and I'm such a cheapo but it is definitely a great product that I highly recommend! 

I would also like to point out that this product is a bit hard to purchase abroad and I'm hoping to see more of the brand on our favorite online Korean beauty stores but if you're in Korea and you see the brand, check it out! They're most popular product I believe are the Propolis ampoules. Let me know if you by chance come across an online beauty store that carries this so we can let others know where to get this. :) 

 *This product was sent to me for review but as always, my reviews are honest and based on my own opinions and experience.
