I’ll buy just about anything that promises to hydrated by dry eyes. I call it selling me snow in the Summer because honestly, let’s face it, none of these promises come true and none of these products actually rid anyone of dark circles, puffiness, and hydration.
But I keep trying!
I recently hauled Baviphat Alaska Mineral Eye Stick in the hopes that glacier water from Alaska would be the next best thing to wake my tired, stressed eyes up and moisturize them.
Yeah, sure, mineral water from Alaska and I think I just saw a pig fly past my window.
A treatment balm that offers intense hydration from the power of Alaskan glaciers.
I’ve tried a few of these stick balms before and haven’t seen any dramatic effects to be honest. Baviphat’s version features is a cooling blue balm which is supposedly made from Alaskan glacier water. How a product made and disturbed in Korea has excess to glacier water is beyond me but hey I’ll buy into it if it works.
The stick has a slight cooling sensation and a nice smooth, balm-y feel but it’s not particularly hydrating.
The bad news is…
My eyes look the same way coming out as they did going in.
Smooth it on, feel a tiny bit of cooling yes, and a bit of a balmy, sticky texture under my eyes but nothing that really aspired shouts of glee. I actually find it’s fab for overnight treatment or even when I’m not wearing concealer but if I’m following up with makeup it proves messy to apply my concealer on top of.
It does hydrate my eyes a little but I can see way better results from my eye cream. I was hopeful it would ease my puffiness a bit and darkness but it does neither.
- Younger eyes might feel it’s good for waking up tired, party too hard eyes.
- Older eyes seeking intense moisture for dry eyes.
- Those wanting a hydrating formula that eases puffiness and darkness.
- Those unwilling to deal with airmail charges and tracking product down online (this isn’t sold within the US so a little online shopping is required).
Overall, Baviphat Alaska Mineral Eye Stick is a cute little gimmick. I didn’t think it did anything particularly special but hey I like the packaging, that counts for something right?
Oh well back to the drawing board on this one.
Anyone try it?
