Balance Me 'extra care' Wonder Eye Cream Review.

I’m a long time getting around to this eye cream, mainly because it’s sat in the ‘use soon’ pile and I’ve sort of forgot it was there. About a month ago, I re-discovered it and decided to use it religiously to see if it did what it said on the tin…er tube

So far, it has not irritated my extremely sensitive Irish girl skin, and it has left the very delicate under-eye skin looking rather hydrated. It's a super light formula and you only need the tiniest bit to get around both your under eyes. I started by squeezing about the size a small amount on to my ring finger, then dabbing my two ring fingers together to that I end up with a little bit on each that I can then dab on very gently under my eyes with both fingers. 

The Balance Me people promise with this product: 

A triple-action eye cream to help revitalise weary eyes, smooth away dark shadows and reduce the appearance of fine lines with super hydrating hyaluronic acid to help brighten and smooth the delicate skin around the eyes.

This for all skin types, I find it works well with my dry/dehydrated skin as I often get tiny patches under my eyes or right by my nose, particularly when the weather is cold, which in Ireland is practically all the time! I also find I often miss that area when moisturising my face with regular moisturiser, so it is good to have something that targets just that area that is light and not cakey or heavy on such a delicate area.   

The product also claims to be 99% natural and cruelty free and filled with ingredients such as ‘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. It all sounds great, right? And I have to say while I was skeptical on whether or not it would work – for me it was the patchy issue as well dark/grey blue shading under my eyes (I blame constant glasses wearing for this!) and one or two fine lines, I was on the lookout more so for the brightening affect. I have to say after a month, I have seen some decent improvement, and I feel if I went to bed at a decent hour I might even see more! 

 Wonder Eye Cream retails for £11.00 for 7ML and £20.00 for 15ML.
