I’ll Be the One To Say It! Heimish Marine Care Eye Cream Is Better Than La Mer

5 stars out of 5

Ok, say what you want but Le Mer Eye Cream is actually pretty good but Heimish Marine Care Eye Cream is better and cheaper. Let’s get some back story in here before we continue. I have purchased expensive eye cream a plenty. Some of those purchases I regret, others I don’t. One item I do indulge in that I use quite often and make no apology about is Creme de la Mer The Eye Concentrate. It’s ridiculous expensive, the ingredients aren’t amazing, but here I am dropping cash on it. I was ever so thankful when La Mer popped at Sephora because at least I can get my fix at 20% off during the Holiday Event. The good news is I have not purchased a single pot of La Mer since I started using Heimish Marine Care Eye Cream which happens to be $25 at the most. Hello bargain!

It is without doubt one of my favorite eye creams and also, it enters the realm of HG status (holy grail). I not saying it is a dupe for La Mer as the formulas are different however, I am saying that my eyes react the same when I am using Heimish versus La Mer plus Heimish’s formula is a bit more moisturizing. I won’t get into details why I love La Mer’s formula but I will say if you use it you be happy to switch over to Heimish as it is just as good if not better.

Heimish Marine Care Eye Cream arrives in a 1 oz pot that includes a double-sided cooling eye roller ball on one side and a spatula on the other. I love, love the cooling eye roller ball simply because it is amazing convenient that it has a small spatula on one side that I can scoop the eye cream out with! It’s a nifty little tool and it shows how much attention goes into details when it comes to Korean skincare.

This is a thicker eye cream that has a subtle sea kept fragrance. Don’t be nervous as I know thicker eye creams can be a chore at times but I promise it absorbs super easily. The miracle here is the fact that such a tiny amount can do so many wonderful things for my eyes. The formula is meant to brighten, prevent wrinkles, tighten, and hydrate. I don’t put a lot of pressure on my eye creams when it comes to eliminating darkness or softening lines, etc…! I simply don’t think there’s any miracle eye cream out there that’s going to make me look ten years younger. I’ve tried plenty both cheap and expensive and none have eliminated all my woes like finer lines, puffiness, and sometimes darkness. It’s just not possible in my opinion with surgery. That being said if you are aging chances are you are experiencing dryness under your eyes and dryness is the number one problem with looking older. Ease the dryness and I can guarantee you’ll look well rested and younger. That, is in fact, where Heimish Marine Care Eye Cream performs it’s little miracle. This is a super hydrating eye cream. Very rich, very moisturizing! I apply a tiny dab and instantly my finer lines look softer, the skin under my eyes looks more supple, plumped, and smoothed. It truly is a little miracle. One thing that bothers me about it is the fact that it doesn’t always play nice with my concealer. I typically apply a very tiny amount under my eyes and I use the roller to gently roll around my eyes. After I pat it all into place under my eyes! It’s an eye cream that definitely sinks in but also, it creates a barrier of moisture under your eyes and that does something interfere with certain concealers and makes them apply streaky and less than smooth. If you have a matte concealer around that may have been drying before I urge you to use it with this eye cream as it works best with a more mattifying formula. Or just reserve this as your night eye cream!

What’s inside? Some of the key ingredients it contains are kelp extract, algae extract which counteracts darkness and can make dark circles look brighter (it also happens to be very high on the ingredients list), seaweed and brown seaweed both of which are highly moisturizing. There’s a lot of other fantastic ingredients which are lower on the list like niacinamide, glycerin, hyaluronic acid, shea butter, and macadamia nut oil. It’s really a powerhouse of good stuff!

I absolutely love it is something I’ll purchase again and again!

If you have drier eyes it’s worth a purchase. Don’t miss out.

    I actually got this awhile back because Heimish is my favorite K Beauty brand. I was surprised by how little you needed because it was a 1 oz jar when most eye creams are .5 oz. I also use it as a hand cream in a pinch because it’s more moisturizing than my body lotion.

  • Gina

    I appreciate this post because I was looking for an eye cream!
    I wanted to try the Jeju Orchid Eye Cream from Innisfree, but now I don’t know if I should try it, or this one from Heimish

    • Isabella Muse

      My pleasure! I wish I could give you a go on the Innisfree but haven’t tried that one!

  • Ashley

    There are a few La Mer products that are worth the hype, the eye cream being one of the better products. But lordy have their prices gotten ridiculous over the years. I’ve noticed they make travel sizes of some of their products. Thank god! The travel sizes are definitely for the working class. Glad u could find a product with similar results and a hell of a lot cheaper! Rarely does that happen once you get spoiled by a products consistency.

    • Isabella Muse

      the prices have always been pretty obscene 🙁 I was thrilled with this as it works just as good if not better than the La Mer eye cream ;-D

  • Amy

    I splurged once on the La Mer Eye Cream and I have to say it was the only time I have ever been able to notice a big difference between other eye creams. But, my budget doesn’t allow me to buy it regularly. Thank you for telling us about this one.

    • Isabella Muse

      likewise. Puffiness eased, well hydrated under eye area, and my eyes just looked and appeared much better! very pricey but the results are excellent or at least for me! Try this! You’ll love it!

  • Agona

    Honestly though, my favorite eye care products that have actually had distinct and visible results over time are Jan Marini Luminate Eye Gel (JM products have really active ingredients so to you do have to do every other day application/once a day application until you get used to it and can up the application to every day and then twice a day if you want) and the Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Pure Retinol Express Smoothing Eye Mask–I literally use these every other day; gets expensive if you use frequently though but I like spending most of my skincare money on my eyes because I feel like that’s where you show age first and I like to keep them smooth for all my eye shadow looks! …I also can’t stress the use of sunglasses enough. <– UV exposure is the biggest ager (can't exactly sunscreen your eyes).

  • Eileen

    Can you put the eye cream around the entire eye area or just underneath. Thanks for the info!

    • Isabella Muse

      I tend to always do under eye only with all eye creams just because the area on the lids is so thin! I don’t know if it is safe for over the eye to be honest especially since it contains a small amount of fragrance.

    • Isabella Muse

      Oh my gosh that’s enlightening 🙂 I’ve read something about this a long time ago regarding Japanese ingredients and I had a friend of mine translate once and it actually did add up correctly. I think I need to get a Korean translator on board hehe! That was a great article! Thanks! Regardless though, this stuff is pretty awesome ;-D Let me know what you think!

      • Jennifer

        I DO want to try the Heimish…right after I finish testing the new Olay one (see my IG @jennifer.refinedbeauty). So far, I’m loving it! It’s only for nighttime and for all around the eyes. It’s unscented, lightly creamy, and the perfect moisture level (not overly so which makes for puffier eyes in the morning…eek!). I’m most excited about the retinol to address the fine lines, darkness and overall weakening of the delicate skin around the eye area.

  • Miska

    Isabella, how strong is the fragrance in this? I see it listed near the end of the ingredient list so I’m hoping it’s minimal. So many eye creams make me tear up due to the fragrance. Also, I wonder if this can cause milia. I’ve had that issue in the past but I can’t pin down what ingredients cause it. Grrr I can’t stand when creams come in jars versus tubes or pumps for sanitary reasons. I really appreciate the little spatula tool included. Many of the Asian skincare brands that I’ve tried come with little tools to dig in to the tubs, which is awesome.

    • Isabella Muse

      Mmm it’s subtle it’s not eye sting high level of fragrance if that makes sense. Sort of smells like kelp/aquatic. I’ve been using it several months and thankfully no milia (which I’m prone to which richer eye creams).
