Reader’s Request: Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Balm Review

You know what the number one problem is when it comes to fine lines under your eyes? Dry skin.

The delicate area under your eyes can occasionally become very dry especially as you age this in fact causes fine lines to look worst than they actually are. At least that’s been the case for me.

Your best possible defense against dry skin and fine lines is keeping things as moist and hydrated as possible. Believe me I used just about everything and the kitchen sink to keep the delicate skin under my eyes as moisturized as possible but sometimes even that isn’t it enough.

Solution?

Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Balm…miracle in a glass jar.


Check it after the jump!

What is it?

It’s a herbal scented balm that resembles vaseline but with a harder texture.

What’s it do?

Depuffs, moisturizers, hydrates, soothes, protects, and erases signs of fatigue such as dark circles.

Does it work?

Hells to the yes!


Trust me I’m a Doctor, I think David Tennant said that at one point…but anyway….here’s the scoop. Yes, it depuffs, yes it moisturizes, yes it hydrates, yes it improves fine lines (due to dryness) under your eyes, and yes it fights the signs of fatigue but no it doesn’t erase dark circles.

So…..

I gave up everything I normally slather under my eyes aside from my AM eye cream to use this for a week and a half. Honestly, that’s too short a time to really test it out but the fact is I seen such a dramatic difference since I started might as well tell you the good word now.

It sports a consistency of a balm or a salve hence the name eye balm doh. All you need to do is gently pat it under your eyes and go to bed. Next morning you’ll be singing in praise how great you look. It gives an intense shot of good moisture to my dry skin, hydrates it, and does a slight depuff action, LOVE! It also makes me look quite refreshed. Actually when I wake up the following morning it isn’t totally absorbed into my skin, it kinda sits around and moisturizes all through the night as I sleep. It’s rather ideal if you have some serious dry skin going on. Fact of the matter is if I don’t moisture well my fine lines look incredibly bad but when I do get proper moisture you can barely see them and thus the case with this balm. It gives me so much moisture that my fine lines virtually disappear making me look younger, fresher, and flawless.


It’s not for everyone.

Thing is I love it but I know that people will likely feel it’s like slathering vaseline under your eyes. Not the case as it’s a balm and it has a harder texture with a bit of a tacky formula. It could prove to be uncomfortable for some or you may get an “ick” factor after use as it never fully absorbs. As for me I could care less since it gives me all the moisture I crave and than some. I can suffer through a little stickiness for that.

It comes housed in a heavy glass jar and yes sadly you’ll have to be dipping your fingers around in there…hello bacteria…only thing I can suggest is to be sure to always use clean hands prior to use. I find that swirling my finger in it with gentle pressure will make the product easier to use as first try it is quite hard and feels like you’re not using anything at all. A pressured swirl will get it “worked” up so to speak.

It’s $60…honestly, that could be a bit much to drop on a simple balm considering for that chunk of change you can invest in a good quality eye cream. For me it’s priceless since it simply works and hey that’s what I’m paying for right?

So far, it’s on my incredible list. After I’m through with this (which won’t be anytime soon as the jar is huge with a ton of product since a little goes a long way) I’ll be running to the store for another.

Very good stuff, Muse Approval for purchase.

Overall, if you need to tame the puff, erase the fine lines, and get a super dose of moisture under those tired, dry eyes, Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Balm does the deed and does it well.

Loves it.

L’Oreal Revitalift Deep-Set Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream Review

Nothing like watching Cher prance around in a see through fishnet body suit right? Makes you just want to turn back time. Obviously Cher is doing something right as she looks pretty incredible.


Maybe she’s using L’Oreal Revitalift Deep-Set Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream to turn back her time. I know I seriously need to turn back the clock when it comes to my eyes. The Muse does so sport fine lines, a bit of puff, and dark circles.

Jump ahead for the deets on the new L’Oreal Revitalift Eye Cream.

I’m currently busy testing out a new eye cream so I haven’t had a chance to try out L’Oreal Revitalift Deep-Set Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream for myself but I’ll give you the low down on what it is, what it does, and what I think of it so far.

First off the Muse loves the idea of the concept. It’s a dual ended eye cream with an AM and PM formula. I absolutely adore this idea and wish more brands would sport such an ideal form of packaging for eye cream. It’s so very convenient to have two formulas in one design. I don’t have to reach for another cream at night I simply flip the applicator and have my night treatment. I love the applicators on each one as well. The PM has a needle nose applicator which allows for precise application of the treatment without over doing it. The AM has a typical slant applicator which also allow for easy application and even blending if you’re wanting to touch your eye area.

Now this is for serious deep set wrinkles and contains Pro-Retinol A+ for treating such. I don’t have deep wrinkles as of yet but it’s never to early to start worrying about them. The formula supposedly reduces the appearance of deep-set wrinkles.

The AM formula contains an SPF 15 and helps repair broken skin fibers around the eye area. The PM formula contains the same fiber restoring fibers and helps to repair and rebuild broken skin fibers. Pro-Retinol A accelerates skin renewal for a smoother, revitalized skin. The treatment begins to work immediately according to the box but the best results are seen within 4 to 8 weeks.

The treatment is $19.99 so it’s quite affordable if you’re wanting to look towards a drugstore for your eye treatment. Overall, it sounds promising but I can’t take full advantage as I don’t have deep set wrinkles as of yet but anyone who’s reaching a point where they need extra treatment in this area could likely benefit.

L’Oreal Revitalift Deep-Set Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream is available now at your local drugstore.

Want It: Lush Oatifix Fresh Face Mask

Lush+Oatifix

Although I’m the first one to admit that my beloved Lush does have some products that don’t work…..

Ahem….Lush Fresh Face Mask.

No worky.

I’ve tried them all and I honestly never see incredible results after use. You’d think with all those good for you bits inside that your face would be glowing after use, not so much.

But that doesn’t stop me from wanting the brand new Lush Oatifix Fresh Face Mask. It’s too tempting with it’s blend of fresh bananas, oatmeal, almonds, and vanilla..god my stomach is grumbling sounds good enough to eat to me!

Ground almonds exfoliating dead skin, bananas are a great nutritious treat for your skin as they soften and reduce redness. Although I don’t sport redness I could get on board with some extra softness.

I’ll take two thanks so much.

Available now from Lush UK and soon to follow around the rest of this world.

Wants it!

Would You Buy It? Kate Somerville Deep Tissue Repair Cream

Kate+Somerville+Deep+Tissue+Repair+Cream

The Muse does so wonder how far are you willing to go for your skin? Me, I’d probably go far but not too far….

I recently came across Kate Somerville Deep Tissue Repair Cream and noticed that a 1oz size is $150 but that’s nothing get this a 5oz size is $500 bucks!

Whoa.

Do you think it does dishes and walks the dog for that price?

This is an age-defying moisturizer which contains something called Peptide K8. Supposedly it’s one of the most advantaged anti-aging ingredients ever. This is supposed to literally transform your face!

I actually find myself craving fine lines at the moment just so I can try it and see what happens…is that terribly weird?

Question is would you buy it for that price?

Jump ahead to hear my babble.

I’d possibly dish out $150 but I’m unsure I’d go for $500 dollars for a moisturizer. That’s a bit above my budget and I sure could think of a dozen other things to do with $500 big ones and it doesn’t involve moisturizer.

Ok, I’ll be honest, I’m kinda second guessing even $150 bucks….the most I’m willing to dish out for skin care of any kind is in the $50-$65 range.

How about you?

Big spender?

Would you buy Kate Somerville Deep Tissue Repair Cream?

What if I told you it takes out the garbage and gets wrinkles off your face?

Convinced now?

Tell the Muse!
