Thoughts
I bought this from La Bonita where they sell clothes and Korean beauty products. They are within my arms reach since I live in Abu Dhabi without paying shipping fees to expensive UAE Korean beauty websites.

My small face didn’t cooperate with the eye mask. It was difficult to put on the mask since it reaches my inner eye duct. I have to make my eyes bigger to avoid from sagging. After three minutes (I think it was a short time) there was a sting. The note says to discontinue use if there is any irritation or rashes. I gave it another shot and try to put on again (maybe I put it in an improper way). Again, there’s still a STING! I had to throw it away!

Dimethicone. It was the common ingredient when I had an irritation with my first eye cream. Dimethicone is simply a silicon oil. This silicone oil is a thin layer that covers our skin which also traps the impurities and bacteria at the same time. That’s the thing with cosmetics, we are on a trial and error process until we’d discover which product works best. Unfortunately, the sensitive side of my skin immediately causes an allergy reaction. Here’s a helpful article to avoid dimethicone at all costs.

What other eye masks can you recommend without dimethicone?
