bareMinerals Mineralixirs Eye Nourishing Oil Balm
Soothing for my Sensitive Eyes
I have a very good complexion and am told that my skin looks twenty years younger than my sixty years. Because my skin has always been sensitive, my skin care is kept to a minimal. However the area around my eyes has become very puffy over the last month. I saw this product on line and thought that I would try it, knowing that I could return it if it didn't work. Ladies, it works, the puffiness is gone, my eyes look more youthful and most important, they feel so much better, the tight feeling is gone!
Great for dry eyes
I like this (little goes a long way!) along lash~line. I use al night and something else with. No reactions in my sensitive eyes.
I love everything about this eye cream. It reminds me of Vaseline but in a really good way and much lighter feel! I put it on my lips as well. It feels so good under eyes and down along crows feet. Pressing into skin and looks so fresh! It is even better than a Moroccan oil and does not compare to the slip of this product. I love this product and will be stocking up. It is a great buy as it last all day and I don't think it feels greasy but emollient! :)
Don't like strong smell and greasy feel
For me the smell is overpowering. I tried putting lotion on over it to mask the smell but it didn't work. Also concerned about the greasiness - don't want to close to my eyes, which is what it's for.
Finally---something that is working on these eyes!
Love this product! At 62, I have tried a multitude of eye products from gels to creams to serums. My skin is sensitive and many eye products (not Bare Minerals) felt like a mild burn or stinging sensation. This eye balm is gentle, easy to use, absorbs nicely (a tiny touch goes a LONG way), and it is improving the skin around my eyes in a week! I have even patted it on over my BE eye makeup. I would like this in a vat please! I have used it on my lips and my hands....it is not greasy or oily as you might expect. Give it a try! If you have an eye cream you like, you can use this under your favorite cream.
Best eye treatment ever!
I simply love this eye balm! I had tried the BE eye firming treatment and didn't like it because it would roll up when I applied my moisturizer and primer over it. This nourishing oil eye balm glides on so smoothly and my eyes look amazing! Best part is I can apply moisturizer, primer, and makeup over it with no problems whatsoever. This is the product I have been waiting for!
Not completely convinced
I ordered one on AD and one without to make sure I have one for on the go.
I think I will be removing my AD status.
This is nice and light and works nicely, but I have been stuck on JM infinity oil. It is slightly heavier, but still light enough for summer.
As much as I have loved BE for the past decades, I feel that they are starting to fall short.
I will be using the 2 containers that I bought, but will not be reordering.
I love the cleanser from this set, and the oil blend is adequate (not great).
What is happening to the BE line?
This Eye Balm is excellent! The skin around my eyes looks so hydrated, smooth and feels so soft! I sometimes have issues where eye creams affect my eye liner and pull the makup down, but this product absobs very quickly and does not impact my eye makeup... It is interesting how it is a solid but it melts onto your finger and into the skin around the eye... I am very impressed with this product and very excited to have finally found an eye product that exceeds my expectations! Nice work on this product!
Made my eyes itch
Allergy watch on this one. Beware if you have sensitive skin. I LOVE Bare Minerals, but not this product.
Absolutely love, love, love it! So hydrating! Wish I had it over the winter months! Also use on my lips and cuticles. A little goes a long way!
Another eye cream this IS NOT. This is day four for me and my eye area appears smoother and with fewer/non-existent finer lines! For some reason, I decided to use a small synthetic brush to apply the balm and I'm liking this form of application around my eyes.
Way too greasy
This balm is way too greasy for my liking. This made it not useful under foundation. Even at night I found it to be too greasy. I couldn't use it on the eyelids, because it crept into my eyes, irritating them. Even the little bit under my eyes, crept into my eyes. It left a film on my eyes. I can imagine this balm would be even worse in the summer. My skin is dry, but in my opinion, the best eye treatment is Origins Starting Over eye cream. So I returned this balm.
