Hey everyone, I'm continuing my experiments with innovative and unusual skincare ingredients. In today's blog post, the star ingredient we will be paying attention to is swiftlet nest extract. Thanks to the iconic K-beauty brand Elizavecca, I've been able to take a closer look, learn a bit more, and even experience the healing powers of this ingredient on my own skin.

What is swiftlet nest extract, how does it work, and why is it so popular among skincare enthusiasts? You'll find the answers to all of these questions (and other questions as well) in this article. But the most important question is: will you try this product yourself? Let us begin!

About Elizavecca Eye Want Cream

Eye Want Cream* by Elizavecca is one of their most peculiar and fantastic skincare products. It claims to reduce wrinkles, dark circles, and even puffiness around the eyes. As a part of Elizavecca's CF Nest line, which includes Under-Eye Serum for Wrinkles and the White Bomb under-eye cream, this cream includes swiftlet nest extract, shea butter,  and gold extract. Here are a few more things it is claimed to achieve and provide:

‣ Multi-functional;
‣ Lightly textured and has a large amount of product;
‣ Increase skin elasticity;
‣ Nourish and moisturize skin;
‣ Brighten the under-eye area.

  • Packaging

The packaging of the Eye Want Cream truly differed from other classic eye cream tubes. First of all, it is large and has 100 g. (3.5 oz.) of the caring under-eye product. The rounded plastic jar is similar (if not the same ) to other face creams by Elizavecca. Together with the product, you'll also get a small spatula for hygienic application and spread of the product.

The design is cute and minimalistic. It features a tiny, egg-shaped birdie, that applies Eye Want Cream onto the face. Birdie looks very pleased with the whole face care process!

  • Texture & Scent

Now it is time to talk about the fantastic texture and the scent of Eliavecca Gold Cf-Nest B-Jo Eye Want Cream. It drastically differs from any other eye cream you ever had, I guarantee! The texture is thick and rich. It has a white to transparent color and feels slightly like a lard between the fingers (but in a good way!) The scent is very soft, almost absent. I would describe it as a mild floral scent, which reminds me of a high-end hair care product.

  • Ingredients

And now for my favorite part – the ingredients of the Eye Want Cream! Swiftlet nest extract makes up 50% of the product! Can you believe it? Elizavecca is known for such drastic percentages of beneficial ingredients, for instance, their Memory Cream also consists of 50 % Hyaluronate. 

Other rich ingredients in the formula are: butyrospermum parkii aka shea butter, loved for its potent nourishing and moisturizing effect; glycerin – widely used for its hydrating effect and ability to improve skin barrier function.  Macadamia, Linseed and Sea Buckthorn oils are also present in the formula, serving as skin-smoothening, nourishing agents.

Additionally, the formula contains niacinamide (you can also spot it in the White Bomb cream), which is a form of vitamin B₃, is used in skincare for its wonderful abilities to promote skin's elasticity, improve hyperpigmentation, and keep the overall look of complexion bright and even.

What is Swiftlet Nest Extract?

Swiftlet Nest Extract is a natural ingredient derived from the solidified saliva of swiftlets, small birds that build their nests from salivary secretions. These nests are highly prized for their purported health and beauty benefits and are used in a variety of traditional and modern products like food and skincare.

It is rich in proteins, including glycoproteins, which are believed to contribute to its skin-firming and anti-aging properties. Swiftlet Nest Extract is also a source of essential and non-essential amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins and play a crucial role in skin health.

How to Use Eye Want Cream by Elizavecca?

Elizavecca's Eye Want Cream is a multi-product. It means that you can use it not only to nourish the delicate skin around your eyes but also to moisturize the skin on your face and neck. That's the way I prefer using it!

Start your skincare routine with a clean face. Use your favorite cleanser to remove any makeup, dirt, or impurities from your skin. Pat your face dry with a clean towel and proceed to application. Take a small amount of the Eye Want Cream on your ring finger. A small amount of the cream will be enough enough for both eyes. If you want to apply it to your face and neck area, you might want to use a spatula to grab more crea, from a jar.

Using your ring finger, gently pat the cream onto your skin. Avoid rubbing or pulling the skin around your eyes, as it’s very delicate. Instead, use light tapping motions or gentle circular motions to help the cream absorb.

Let the cream absorb fully into your skin before applying any makeup or other skincare products. For best results, use the Eye Want Cream in your morning and nighttime skincare routines.

Remember, everyone's skin is different, so it’s a good idea to do a patch test before fully incorporating a new product into your routine. Also, if you experience any irritation or discomfort, discontinue use and consult with a dermatologist.


  Final Verdict

Now to the summary. I believe that the Gold Cf-Nest B-Jo Eye Want Cream by Elizavecca is a great moisturizer, especially, when it comes to the colder time of the year. Its rich consistency and nourishing ingredients make the butter-like texture of the cream outstanding for all skin types but for dry skin in particular.

If you're always searching for highly nourishing, unique ingredients that deliver visible results within the first few weeks of skincare, then you should definitely check out this cream. It's particularly relevant now, during the winter season when our skin requires extra care and attention.

Lots of love,
