Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream
I have a small tube that came with a magazine or that i get from one of the many sites I write for as a sample. The price is £20 for a 15ml tube or £14 for a 10ml tube and it is suitable for all skin types.
ABOUT BALANCE ME
This is a British company which is one plus and then they also make natural, quality, paraben and sulphate free, aromatherapy skincare products which makes them worthy of supporting in my view.
This is a company which has ethics I am in favour of and so I will buy their products even though some are a bit more expensive but they are still cheaper than companies from the USA like Burt's Bees and I do like to support home grown companies.
'Balance Me' products have won a number of awards recently and these include;
'Red' Best of Beauty Award in 2012.
Beauty Insider's Choice Award in 2011
Anti-Aging award from The Beauty Bible
Natural Beauty Year Book Award 2011 - top twenty personalities
Cosmetic Executive Women UK's Member Achiever Award at the 20th anniversary dinner held in London
Green Parent natural beauty Award in 2011 for two products
Good Spa award finalist in 2011
Green Beauty Bible awarded for their toning body wash and handcream
There was such a long list that I have just picked a few. This small company started by two sisters in their kitchen in 2005.
THE WONDER EYE CREAM CLAIMS
This is what they say on the website:
"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 comes in a small tube that you squeeze to get out a small amount through a nozzle which is protected with a screw top lid. I do find that it doesn't stand on its end so it has to lie down and I do have to squeeze to get the stuff out. Not sure how it will be towards the end of the tube as I haven't got to that stage as yet.
I really like the fact that this contains natural ingredients .
I love the fact that the cream smells pleasant and pats in so easily and the area around my eyes feels moisturised and refreshed. I don't have dark rings under my eyes but they do get a bit sunken and I find this lifts the surrounding area a bit. The cream is rich but not heavy and absorbs beautifully. I found it did help revitalise my weary eyes and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
My fine lines are still there but realistically NOTHING is going to remove them, they may just not get worse if I keep feeding them with creams like this.
All the natural ingredients such as chamomile which is calming for the skin, lemon which lifts and lightens the skin, cucumber oil which is always good for eyes and witch hazel with its lifting and refreshing elements. We then have spruce knot which is a natural anti-oxidant and the moisturising and softening elements are from coconut, rosehip and carrot oils so all great natural ingredients that help this particularly soft and vulnerable area of our face which is exposed to all the rigours of daily life.
HOW TO USE
Just lightly pat and smooth around the eye area twice daily after applying your daily moisturiser. I have been told by experts that you should only pat not rub the area around your eyes and use your middle or ring finger as these are less strong so the action will be gentler
WHERE CAN I BUY THIS FROM?
Well from their site https://www.balanceme.co.uk
And also from http://www.mypure.co.uk
http://www.naturisimo.com and this site offers free delivery on every order which has to be an attraction .
I have found this to be a really nice eye cream that leaves my eye area feeling well moistened and refreshed. I love the ethics of the company and they fact that they promise there will be no parabens, sulphates, petroleum, mineral oils, silicones, dea, pegs, propylene glycol, artificial fragrances or colours and there are not many that can promise and fulfil that so I am fully in favour of supporting this company and will be doing so in future rather than the USA based ones with similar claims who are more expensive too.
Come on all you people who are in favour of fewer chemicals in your products and not testing on animals this is a great UK company and I will be supporting them in future and I urge you to give them a try.
I haven't seen it in Boots or other high street stores but that is not to say it is not to be found there.
Thanks for reading. This review may be posted on other sites under my same user name.
