I bought this cream to try to reduce some of the puffiness I have in the morning. I really like the smell and it glides on very nicely. It really helps with the puffiness and gives you a light glow around your eyes the morning after you use it. I always use it at night and always have good results when I wake up. Great product.
absolutely no improvement in my eye area...not worth the 17 bucks
I was able to get this for seven dollars on eBay, I think in stores it's 17 or a little less, but not by that much. It's the fourth eye cream I've used over the years. I used Mary Kay for awhile, but I saw no difference. Three years ago I used Lancome which was nice, but way too pricey for my lifestyle. And, I used some L'Oreal eye cream that burned. I've been trying to go natural and animal friendly, and this is AMAZING. The texture is creamy, and the smell is nice, a little goes a long way. My under eye area has improved a lot too. My eye make up just glides on, and it's so moisturized and brightened, I can't believe it. This will be a big part in my future routines (I'll buy again)
I picked up this eye cream because I've been trying to switch to an all-natural beauty regimen, and this product is "98.2% natural" and features "royal jelly" (exotic, right?). This was one of my starter products and also the first eye cream I've purchased. I've had it for about two years and I still have about 1/4 of the product remaining. It's expensive but it lasts for a while.
On occasion, I've tried mini-samples of Lancome creams and lotions that my mom has given to me. I would never put such harsh products near my eye-area again. This soothing creams trumps those by far.
My skin is pretty difficult; I have acne-prone skin that is sensitive in some areas (such as around the eyes) and dry in others. This eye cream was hydrating and NEVER irritating. I haven't had a problem with milia, or any bumps under my eyes. While it hasn't had any great lightening effect on my dark circles, it temporarily brightens up the area a tiny bit when you apply it because of the way it reflects light. I don't have puffiness or swelling (just very dark circles) so I can't comment on that.
It also goes nicely under concealer. I use it every day in the morning and somewhat regularly at night, when I remember to apply it.
I don't find it greasy at all, but I also have dry skin. The label says to pat it on but I gently rub it in (oops).
I think the smell is pleasant, but it's definitely not a commercial smell that most people prefer (it has that "natural-product" scent). However, I really wish this product didn't contain added fragrance. I like my products to be unscented.
In sum, it's just okay. I haven't sampled enough eye creams to really compare it to others but it seems like a decent product. I'm happy to continue using it until it runs out but I don't think it delivers on a lot of its claims. I probably wouldn't purchase it again because I'd want to try to find a more effective eye cream. If the search fails, then perhaps I'm not giving this cream enough credit?
Pros: hydrating; non-irritating; good moisturizer base for concealer; brightens a tiny bit; mostly natural
Cons: added fragrance; not sure how effective it is in improving appearance of under eye area.
First off this product is quite expensive. Second, I didn't notice a thing different after using this product for 2 months straight applying morning and night! I was not happy with any of the Burt's Bees products except there lip balm line.
I definately will not purchase this product or any of the Burt's Bees skincare again.
Fab eye cream. I bought this to wear under makeup. It works very well and my concealer glides smoothly over it. I apply a very thin layer and I wait a couple of minutes for it to completely absorb before putting anything over it. I've been using it for awhile now and I really like it. If I look tired in the morning, this helps wake my eyes up. Always apply a thin layer, very little goes a long way. So the little jar will last a long time. The scent doesn't bother me at all, I like it actually. Mmmhmmm.
This is a greasy, heavy eye cream. I only use it at night now because a) it's kind of smelly and b) the time I used it during the day I had black road tracks under my eyes (from my mascara) where my fine lines are! This looked really bad. I think it does a good job moisturizing, because it lasts all day or all night. However, nada on the dark circles or puffiness. I will keep searching for my HG eye cream. On the bright side it was natural, which was good.
This is the first Burt's Bees product I've found that I don't actively dislike, which is sad, because I really want to like the brand. I love that they make natural products, but that said, I don't think that a brand is superior based on intentions. Their products have to follow through.
This eye cream moisturizes reasonably effectively, which is what I bought it for, so I'm giving it 3 lippies. It doesn't give me milia, or any other immediate ill effects, so no major negatives. Beyond that, there's nothing great to say. It's a little sticky, and if I apply too much, it leaves a weird shimmery residue. It does not help with lines, dark circles, or puffiness as it claims to.
I guess it's on with the hunt for a great eye cream for me. *sigh*
This product is so-so.It didn't work wonders for me but it also didn't irritate me either.It slightly brightened but doesn't do enough for the dark circles and puffiness I am experiencing during pregnancy.I try to keep some of my face products in the fridge and this does work better when it's cold(for obvious reasons). I did my frozen peppermint tea bags over my eyes the other day and noticed more of a difference.Sorry B.B.s but I will not repurchase.
This is my second eye cream I bought for the main purpose of lightening my somewhat dark under eye circles. The first cream i bought was the excessively expensive Hylexin (going for about $95?) which did nothing for me so I felt. This one is tons more cheaper and I felt this had better lightening results in addition to being hydrating, which Hylexin definitely wasn't. BB's eye cream doesn't do wonders, but i felt it did make my under eye circles appear slightly lighter, it looked like it slightly tightened the skin around my eyes, it depuffed any eye bags i get when i wake up, and while I don't think it removes fine lines it does seem to make them less noticeable and possibly smaller while the cream is on. The cream feels a little thick going on and takes a little bit of rubbing in to absorb. I absolutely love the smell of this cream and if Royal Jelly really smells like this I bet I'd love it in my tea. However, I can see it being overwhelmingly sweet smelling for some people. Not candy sweet but maybe a very heavy floral with honey scent?
I've been using this twice a day for a couple of months and I only need to use a very small amount to coat under and on top of my eye area that I see this tiny tiny bottle lasting nearly a year for me. (Keep in mind though, that I'm not using this for it's hydrating purposes so I don't use that much of it every time.) I'd rather see this product in a tube rather than a small glass jar as it'd be more sanitary but otherwise I'm satisfied with this product for now.
