Swedish Skin Review Part 2

Hi girls! I promised to review more Swedish Skin products and here you go :) Sorry it took me a while since studying is in the way these days. Reviews always take so long to write too (especially for multiple products). If you haven't seen my first part of the Swedish Skin Review, click here!

This time, I'll be reviewing the three products that come in containers as follows. If you don't know already, I think the Buy 1 Get 2 free deal is still going on. A lot of the products are not available anymore, however the cleansers that I've reviewed last time, the Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizer, and the Anti-Aging Eye Cream are still available on the site (Both products are included in this post).


Apple Rejuvenation Cream (1.7 oz) / Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizer (1 oz)/ Anti-Aging Eye Cream (0.5 oz)

Apple Rejuvenation Cream
$23.99 1.7 oz

I'm not a big fan of this. It has an interesting texture. I generally use this in the morning, but because it doesn't have spf, I pair this with other products as well. I find that this is not hydrating enough to be a standalone cream. When I tried this cream for the first time, I was actually turned off by its scent. Now that I've gotten more used to it, it's acceptable. I don't feel like this product is any special. But since I got it as a deal ($23.99 for 3), I think it's not bad. One thing I want to mention is that my mom tried this on her neck for 2 consecutive days, and she got an allergic reaction with red spots on her neck. I use this on my face and haven't had any abnormal reaction yet.

Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizer
$23.99 1 oz

This is a hydrating moisturizer. I like this. I've seen youtube reviews where people mention they really like the scent of this. Although I don't dislike it, I don't love it at the same time. It does smell like apple, and it's much more pleasant than the scent of the Apple Rejuvenation Cream, but the apple scent seems really fake to me for some reasons :S Texture wise, it glides one smoothly on your skin. It gets a thumbs up from me :)

Anti-Aging Eye Cream
$19.99 0.5 oz

Unlike the way-too-rich Shiseido Benefiance Concentrated Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream that I reviewed in this post, this Swedish Skin eye cream is light weight and moisturizing! It has no scent which I like. I find that it has a cooling effect too. It's comparable to my Clinique moisture surge extra refreshing eye gel, but the Clinique one is in gel form. This product gets 2 thumbs up from me :)

Stay tuned for the final Swedish Skin Review on the 2 products that come with a pump - Apple Rejuvenation Serum and Moisturizing Protective Lotion with SPF 15. Because these two products aren't available on the site anymore, I decided to do them last, and review the ones that are still on the site first.

Much Love. Have a great long weekend for my Canadian readers out there :)

Does the eye cream get rid/reduce lines under your eyes? I have these crepe-y lines under my eyes. I don't know if they're wrinkles or if it just means my under eyes are dry :P

Happy long weekend to you too! :)

@Kimchi Do you currently use an eye cream? It's hard for me to tell if it actually gets rid of eye wrinkles cause I currently don't have any (touch wood I won't have start having some soon ;P), but I think it's definitely moisturizing and refreshing after putting it on my eye area! The area feels firmer! :) Hope this helps!
