Here’s an interesting little product you might want to try for yourself, Balms Away Eye Makeup Break-Up from the Balm.
You might be wondering why I am recommending you a $19 USD tin of what appears to be Vaseline.
I guess in a way this has the same benefits that simple, cheaper Vaseline does however I definately like this much better than your average run of the mill jar of petroleum jelly!
What is Balms Away anyway?
Basically it’s a very emollient jelly eye makeup remover that’s packed full of Vitamins, Sterols, Lipids, and most importantly moisturizing goodness for your eye area!
I normally use Sephora Eye Makeup Remover which runs me about $8 USD. It’s the best remover I’ve come across that takes it all off with a nice low price tag. Lancome’s Bi-Facil is another favorite of mine but at $26 USD I cringe to purchase it!
So why shell out $19 USD for this tin?
Simply, because it works.
For one thing it’s a large tin at 2.2 oz and since you’re only using a very small amount it should last you a while. Secondly, the moisturizing benefits alone really make me happy! My under eye area seriously needs as much moisture as it can get right now and after massaging off my eye makeup with this my eyes feel so very soft and my lashes conditioned. I experience less lash breakage as well since I’m not tugging around with a cotton ball drenched in eye makeup remover.
How’s it work?
Take a tiny amount, close your eyes and massage. Wipe clean with a cotton square or some tissue. One swipe should get it all. I choose to rinse with warm water after I swiped it away with cotton. That’s it, Bob’s your Uncle! Eye makeup all gone and fresh, moisturized eyes in it’s place!
The texture quite reminds me of Vaseline. It’s a jelly formula that glides onto your eyes easily. That temporary feeling of cloudy eye vision when I’m using an oil based remover is easily avoided with this. It clearly states on the directions to keep your eyes closed when using but I did crack them open a little to locate my cotton squares and after removal I didn’t experience temporary blindness or cloudy vision which totally made my day as I really hate that feeling!
I like this. I know it’s rather expensive but I’m on the bandwagon for a repurchase when I’m finished with this tin! It’s fragrance free for those of you who aren’t too keen on scented products! It removes heavy duty eye makeup including waterproof mascara which is a big plus for me!

All in all I’m rather happy I spontaneously purchased this. I know the price is a bit much but in the long run I’m thinking it’s worth it.
