Review: Skinfood Black Raspberry Eye Cream (Wrinkle Care)

Hello ~
This is a short review about the Skinfood Black Raspberry Eye Cream (Wrinkle Care).
I already reviewed another product from Skinfood's Black Raspberry Line, the Black Raspberry Toner here.

I was at first a bit unsure whether I should review this product at all, because I only have samples of this and even though just one of them can easily last for 3-4 days I cannot say much about the long-time effect, but I don't believe wrinkle care creams make your wrinkles disappear, they just keep them from appearing in the first place. So you never can know whether an anti-wrinkle product works unless you were able to see how you would look after using it for  a few weeks and how you would look without using it at the same time. So I decided I could still at least review things like texture and scent.
Product Description:
This herbal medicinal anti-wrinkle eye cream contains black raspberry extract, and jayangboeumdan  and cheongyeondan extracted from 12 kinds of oriental medicinal herbs that have traditionally been used by women to treat rough, dry skin. It provides deep moisturization to skin in eye areas. Anti-wrinkle adenosine adds resilience to skin, keeping it healthy-looking.
* To Use
After toner, apply desired amount and press gently to absorb.
 The original product comes in a 25g tube, which looks like a jam jar. The sample's design looks nothing like the original product, bur rather like some other products from Skinfood's Black Raspberry line like for example their eye mask. 

 I already tried another one of Skinfood's eye creams before, the Skinfood Platinum Grape Cell Eye Cream, and I really disliked it because it was just extremely oily.
The Skinfood Black Raspberry Eye Cream is so much better texture-wise. If the Platinume Grape Cell Eye cream was like oil, the Black Raspberry Eye Cream is more like butter. It has a thick texture but is still easy too apply and, most important to me, soaks in so much better. Just like the toner from this line, which seemed very oily for a toner at first, but soaked in completely, this cream seems to be one of these rarer super-moisture-without-leaving-a-greasy-feeling products.

Another great aspect of this cream is that, because of its texture, it "collects" in the small creases under my eyes, making the skin appear smooth instantly.

The only down-turner is, just like with the toner (and probably every other product from this line), the scent. Instead of smelling like raspberries the eye cream smells very herbal, but luckily you only really notice it when you smell the cream itself, but not anymore when you put it on the skin under your eyes. Like this it isn't as unbearable as it is with the toner which you put all over your face.
