This is a product I have bought several times over the years mainly for holiday use as you can get it in a nice travel kit.
**The brand **
I love burts bees just putting it out there. It's a great natural brand at quite affordable prices.If they did make up I would buy it :p
The one I frequently get is more sample sized and comes in a packet. I don't mind this but it's slightly annoying that it can't be resealed. This size works fine as a travel size and lasts me the whole of my holidays.
You only need to dab the smallest amount of this under your eyes. This absorbs really quickly so you don't have to let it soak in before you put your make up on. I feel that this helps moisturises and leaves my skin feeling smooth. I also think that it revitalises and refreshes my skin as well. The smell of this is really nice as well. It has the same smell as the other creams and its not too strong,just natural and fresh.This is one of the best eye creams I think i have tried.
**Price and where to get**
This costs around £20 for the full size jar. The radiance eye kit which I recommend costs about the same and can be purchased from amazon, feelunique etc
The only reason I now have a full sized jar of Burt's Bees Radiance Eye Cream is because I tried a sample of this which I got as part of a small gift set during the summer of last year. My cream was in the tiniest of tubes and designed, I think, to be used as a 'travel sized' pack. I did take it on holiday with me and used up the rest on my return and I was so impressed with it that I actually went out and bought myself the full sized jar. Whilst I was impressed with the cream itself, I was less impressed with the price, at almost £20 for a 57g jar. However, after shopping around, I found that Amazon actually sell this for only £14.49, though I don't know if this is still the case, I would recommend looking around before you fork out the full price.
My cream is in a nicely packaged glass jar with a a twist off lid and the cream itself is probably thinner than you might imagine. I bought this because I have a bit of a complex about my eyes, I am almost paranoid about eye bags and think that I have them even though my husband tells me I don't. I try to use creams which will help to eradicate puffiness and tone up the skin in that area as much as I can. I was really impressed by the ingredients in this product and the list is pretty large. I won't list them all as I know how boring that can be, however, the primary ones must be mentioned, I think, and include, Royal Jelly, cucumber, chamomile, extracts of rosehip, bee pollen, a total of seventeen different amino acids, vitamins K, A, C and D.
This cream is designed to be used under the eye area though to be honest, I use it all over the eye and not just underneath. I use it all over the lid and up to the brow bone. It sinks in rapidly and doesn't feel sticky, though blinking when it's still damp and hasn't completely sunk in can feel a little bit odd at first. The smell is lovely, it's fresh and natural and not at all artificial smelling or too heavily perfumed, which I really don't like.
I only ever need to use the tiniest dab of this eye cream and it makes my eyes feel so much more fresh and gives me a wide awake look (even on Monday mornings). I use it underneath foundation and it helps my concealer to blend better when I do this. I don't feel it's had a huge impact on my eye bags, but then that just could be because I am paranoid about them all the time anyway, but I really do feel like it's toned the skin a lot around the eye area and I love that this cream has so many delicious natural ingredients. I have used a few things from this brand which I have also been impressed with and I'd recommend this if you feel that you'd like to give your eye area a little bit more attention.
A while ago, I took out a magazine subscription purely in order to get hold of the free gift, which was a Burt's Bees Radiance Kit. This included a number of items including a travel-size Radiance Day Crème, Radiance Night Crème and Radiance Eye Crème. As a full-size 57g jar of each cream costs £19.99, I thought this set was excellent value based on the fact that the magazine subscription only cost me £6.
What marks these creams out as different from other brands is their inclusion of Royal Jelly. This ingredient is made of nectar, pollen, flower parts and bee hormones. It includes 17 amino acids and vitamins A, C, D and K, which along with B vitamins help minimise the appearance of fine lines and renew your skin. The bee pollen helps skin maintain its essential moisture and restore natural radiance. It's worth pointing out that the inclusion of such ingredients makes the range unsuitable for vegans.
The full-size crème comes in a see-through glass jar with lid inside a Burt's Bees branded box containing all the information you need about the cream. My sample size comes in a small sachet from which I need to squeeze some out.
This eye crème should be gently patted under your eyes and on your brow bones. The instructions do not state whether the crème should be used only at night or in the daytime too, but I've stuck to using it only in the evening. The Royal Jelly in the product helps to naturally replenish and renew your skin's essential nutrients. Other ingredients include chamomile, cucumber and rosehip extracts, which are known to promote skin renewal and reduce swelling and puffiness. Natural mica is also included - this is designed to diffuse light to minimise the appearance of fine lines.
The cream is a fairly thin white liquid that has a faint floral smell. This scent is pleasant but not overpowering and gives the impression of a high quality cream. I dab a tiny amount under my eyes each evening after applying the night cream. This crème sinks in easily and doesn't irritate my skin.
The cream sachet has lasted around three to four weeks. During this time I've noticed that the skin around my eyes seems to be in good condition and my eyes haven't seemed tired or puffy.
I'm too young to have wrinkles yet so I can't say whether this cream helps to prevent them. However it does seem like a good quality cream that helps to moisturise the skin around your eyes. The thing that puts me off is the price tag: at £20 this product is pretty expensive and I've used cheaper alternatives, even bearing in mind that it will last ages as only a tiny amount is used at any one time.
Overall, a nice eye cream but the price is a bit high for me!
