In last month's Glossybox I received a tube of the Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream which is said to be "soothing, brightening and lifting" for the eye area. I don't know how much this little tube retails for but I think it's available in places like Boots - but weirdly I couldn't find it on the Boots website to add a link in! Anyhoo, I've heard some good things about the Balance Me range and a few months ago there were a fair few reviews on them after one of the glossy magazines did a freebie.
I'm quite particular about which eye cream I use and generally stick to one particular brand, most recently I've used one from Dior. But as this was in my Glossybox I thought I'd give this a try for a while.
As this cream is "lifting" I put some on my eye lids and below my under eye area before I went to bed. I used this for about 5 nights before I got any results. The results.... red and sore eye lids! Seriously both eye lids were sensitive to the touch, bright red and very very dry!! I'm absolutely convinced it was this cream as I haven't changed anything else in my beauty regime at all. I've read that one other blogger has had similar sort of issues with this cream so I know I'm not alone (or being overly sensitive!)
I'm quite surprised this cream has had this effect on me like it has. I know I'm usually a sensitive little thing but this has got to be a record in how sensitive I am to a product! So I can't give a glowing report to you readers, I can just advise you use with caution...this stuff is toxic!
How have you got on with Balance Me products?
Which eye creams do you use?
