K-Beauty Secrets: Essential Real Eye Cream for Face

Have you heard Korea’s most coveted beauty secret?

Learn the science behind our iconic Eye Cream for Face

It’s one of Korea’s leading eye creams* – with one sold every three seconds – so what makes our iconic Essential Real Eye Cream for Face so effective?

At AHC, we proudly craft everyday skincare that’s powered by cutting-edge science. That’s why all of our skin care products are scientifically formulated to give you the same glowing skin results you’d get from a Korean aesthetic clinic – but from the comfort of your own home.

As part of our 21 Days to Glow campaign, we asked Laura Chen (MSc Bioengineering) from our Research and Development team to share all you need to know about our game-changing moisturizer.If hydrated, luminous, glowing skin is your goal, our Essential Real Eye Cream for Face is the answer. Our mega-seller moisturizer delivers visible results compared with other – less concentrated – alternatives.

It’s all about applying the same level of potency of an eye care product, but to your whole face. The skin on your eye area is thinner, and more prone to damage, so your eye cream will usually be highly concentrated and carefully formulated to be gentle yet effective on delicate skin. At AHC, we’ve proudly developed a formula that’s as effective as an eye cream, but still able to be applied all over as a face cream. The Eye Cream for Face is now a much-loved moisturizer in South Korea – a highly developed and competitive skincare market.
