- Deeply rich. Shea butter feels awesome, and the skin around my eyes is still moist and plush in the am.
- I think I've noticed a decrease in the crepiness on the lower lid's inside corners. (I was a chronic squinter). Not sure, may be a temporary effect just due to the moisturizing effect.
- Because it's so rich, little is needed. I think a jar could last well over a year. Seriously it's been months and it looks like I've barely used it.
-The bright happy yellow color.
- The yummy smell, lightly herbal and mildly sweet. LOVE IT.
- Use whats left over on my ring finger as a lip balm (the directions suggested this!)
- Holds on to eyeshadows well
- Natural ingredients. I don't know the specifics, but it's sold at Whole Foods. I tend to prefer "natural-ish" products when it comes to eyes and lips. It makes sense in my head. Can't explain it.
- It hardens when it gets cold, creating the need to warm it between my fingers before applying. And yes, it does have some bits of unmelted shea butter. **Although, if you're into the rituals of face care and have the time, I guess warming it and releasing the scents could actually be a plus. This probably doesn't apply if you live in warm weather.
- If you glob it on, you will get a yellow tone over your eyelids. Don't do it.
- Makes the blending of eyeshadows tricky. If you're OCD about blending your shadows (like I can be at times), stay away.
- No SPF. Ok ok so most eye creams don't have SPF. But I would like
Suki eye repair balm more if it did.
- For over $32-38 USD per 0.5 oz / 15mL, doesn't seem worth it, at least to me, to repurchase. Even with the "little bit goes a long way" quality.
- And since it is in jar, it makes me concerned about all the things that would like to grow in it, especially since it takes forever to get through the jar.
- 1 lippie off for being a fuss to apply, especially on cold mornings when I'm running late (as usual). This might not be an issue if you're into the "slow living" movement
- 1 lippie off for the difficulties I encounter when using eyeshadow. Hmm maybe I should stop using it in the day time. But I'm sorry, I can't do two separate eye creams unless one has an SPF.
- 1 "vitual lippie" off for the price. I debated about this, since it lasts for-freakin-EVER. But if you don't like it you might get stuck with it

I have tried almost every Suki product, and apparently that line just doesn't agree with my skin. I hated this product. It made my eyes burn without moisturizing them & made them look super oily too.

Emollient, moisturizing, a bit of shimmer, even if it was teeny bit. Still nice. But still a little pricey for little result.

This is a you either like it or hate it eye balm. I've already gone through 3 jars of this and I still cant decide whether I like it or hate it. The first jar that I got was a balm that was smooth in texture all through out with no pieces of shea butter floating about. But oddly enough, the next two jars that I purchased, there was shea butter that did not complete disolve during the creation process and that really bugged me cuz I'd scoop a bit of the balm out and I would have to warm it up really well between my fingertips to melt the butter. Once warmed up, this balm is easily absorbed into the eye area, provided that you lightly dab the balm into the area. It is highly moisturizing and a little goes a long way. It is fairly pricey though.

I was hoping this would have a more thick and creamy consistently, as I was expecting to use this as a night eye cream. Instead, it is extremely firm (especially when cold), and I have to swirl my finger for a while in the container before I can get any product out. When on the skin, it just STAYS THERE and doesn't absorb at all. If you get enough of this product around your eyes, it also has a very ugly yellow tone. After several months of use, I did not notice any difference in the fine lines around my eyes. The only positive things going for this product is the scent-- and because it's a solid, I can travel with it on the airplanes without hassle.
If you are looking for an effective (and natural) undereye cream that absorbs quickly and is non-greasy, I recommend Acure Organics eye cream superfruit + chlorella growth factor! http://www.acureorganics.com/product-p/015.htm

I have had very good experience with Suki products thus far, except for this eye balm...."Melt in your fingers" balm did nothing for my eye area. SA mentioned that it can also be used as lip balm but as it melts so quickly it is not 'thick' enough to form a barrier on the lips. So...won't be repurchasing!
