Time to review of one of my favourite products! I’ve been a fan of Balance Me for years and can never resist picking up a few of their products on sale. I’ve briefly mentioned their Wonder Eye Cream in a favourites post September Loves with the old tube packaging and I’ve already repurchased a back-up with the new pump dispenser – funnily enough the only products I’ve ever kept back-ups of are from Balance Me, so I think that’s a definite sign they must be good!
Updated 2020 – The packaging has had a few upgrades since my original review back in 2015. As pictured, it is now packaged in a lovely glass bottle with a pump dispenser. The glass bottle and PP cap are widely recycled, but unfortunately the pump is not currently recyclable.
One of the main reasons why I love this eye cream so much is how light it feels in texture. I think I was going a bit wrong with eye creams in the past that were much too heavy for me so they were blocking pores, but I’ve noticed a huge reduction in those pesky little milia since switching to this one. Despite the fact I would describe it as a light eye cream, it’s surprisingly still hydrating enough to leave me with seriously smooth skin around my eyes.
To use, you only need the smallest amount, gently tapping around the eyes with the ring finger. It has a light, slightly citrusy scent and I especially love using this in the mornings as it has a firming, cooling and soothing effect thanks to aloe and hyaluronic acid. It also seems to subtly brighten up the eye area and it’s said to reduce the appearance of fine lines. You can keep it in the fridge if you like an extra cooling, de-puffing effect.
I honestly can’t sing the praises of this eye cream enough, especially for the quality and since it’s 100% natural too (see here for full ingredients list). It’s easily one of the best eye creams I’ve tried and I’ll be keeping it in my routine for a long time yet! A 15ml bottle costs £22 – another one of those products I would say is totally worth it! I always keep my eye out for sales too, I often manage to purchase at 20% off at various online retailers like Naturisimo, so that’s definitely something to keep in mind if you’re on a budget too!
