Balance Me : Wonder Eye Cream

I like to review products on 'empty' as I believe you cannot give an honest opinion on something after only a few uses. My sample tube of eye cream ran out this morning so it's time to give my opinion on this little beauty! 

I received a small, sample size tube of Balance Me's Wonder Eye Cream in a beauty box. I love Balance Me as a skincare company, for their natural products and have used quite a few in the past, so I was keen to try this.

I have been applying this eye cream, daily, before my moisturiser, as part of my daily morning routine. 

BalanceMe say..
'Our three-in-one naturally active eye cream is rich but not heavy and absorbs beautifully. We’ve blended Roman chamomile and skin-brightening lemon, cucumber oil and witch hazel with super hydrating hyaluronic acid, anti-oxidant spruce knot, softening and smoothing virgin coconut, rosehip and carrot oils, all to help brighten and smooth the delicate skin around your eyes.
Lightly pat and smooth around the eye area twice daily after applying our moisture-rich face cream or balancing fluid moisturiser.' -


I have only been using an eye cream daily for a few months now, I'm heading towards 30 so I thought it about time I added an eye cream to my skincare routine!! After washing my face I apply a small amount, using my ring finger (so as not to pull or drag on my skin), gently applying to my eye area, up to my brows, and below my eye area and gently pat. I apply it before my moisturiser, although BalanceMe do recommend you apply it after. Although I cannot be sure, I think I have been using this product for about 4-5 weeks. With the sample tube being 7ml, whilst the full size products are available in 10ml and 15ml, you will probably get a good 2-3 months out of it. It left my eye area feeling smooth and dried quickly giving a primed-feel base ready for my eye make up. I'm not sure if it was anything to do with my eye cream but I've noticed that my eye make up has had a bit more staying power just lately. The cream is a nice consistency, not too greasy, not too thick, and I found that a little goes a long way. Unfragranced, the cream smells fresh and natural. I love BalanceMe products as they're so natural and promise not to use any artificial nasties! It is a company I will definitely use again and again.

Would I recommend it?
Yes. The wonder eye cream is packed full of antioxidants, cucumber oil and lemon for skin brightening goodness, and hyaluronic acid for super hydrated skin. And at 99% natural origin, you know you're smoothing a great product on your skin. It's a great eye cream that I enjoyed using and would definitely recommend.

Would I re-purchase?
I would definitely use this product again, but at £14-£20 I'm unsure I would purchase a full size. 

BalanceMe's Wonder Eye Cream is available to purchase in John Lewis, Waitrose or online at £14 (10ml). £20 (15ml).

Now I just need to find me a new eye cream, any suggestions?
