If you follow me on Instagram you would have noticed that I bought Glamour magazine and it had a freebie with it. I am a sucker for picking up magazines when they have an awesome free beauty product because you get to read something interesting and try something new so in the words of Charlie Sheen 'winning'. This time it was Balance Me's tinted wonder eye cream. Which usually retails at £12.99. I have never used any products form Balance Me before but was after an eye cream anyway so went for that over the regular moisturiser or hand cream.
The sample was a decent size at 5ml and actually lasted me for about 6 weeks. I suffer from dark eyes so tinted eye creams are always in my make up bag. I usually use the garner roller ball as you may have seen in my empties videos. I was actually really impressed with the coverage considering it is just a tinted cream it gave me enough coverage that I could happily wear a BB cream. From what I could tell it just comes in one default colour and is advertised as suitable for all skin types. I would say it is for fair to medium skin tone.
On applying I did feel like it tightened the area around my eyes without being uncomfortable. Once dried it felt light and easy to wear under the rest of my make up. One of the things that really appeals to me about this eye cream is that it is made up of 99% natural materials which is a relief when being used on the eye. I have sensitive eyes so try to keep the chemicals in creams to a minimum especially as they already get irritated by hayfever.
In terms of seeing a difference in my skin I didn't really see any so wonder cream may be a little too ambitious. I would say if you are looking for an eye cream that has some coverage then it is a great cream and I would consider repurchasing. It has certainly peaked my interest in trying more Balance Me products. Especially as they have a natural alternative to other creams.
