Yes To Coconut Ultra Hydrating Overnight Eye Balm ($15.99) is a new Ulta exclusive eye cream or eye balm that launched with the Yes to Coconuts Spring 2016 Collection.

I have to say the newest Yes to Coconut Collection additions are a very pleasant selection of products for drier skin girls and guys like myself. Of course, I got really excited when I saw they would be launching an eye balm plus it is loaded with fantastic moisturizing ingredients like shea butter and argan oil.

Here’s a look!

Yes To Coconut Ultra Hydrating Overnight Eye Balm will be available in a 0.5 pump jar for $15.99 (or cheaper if it pops on sale) exclusively at Ulta and Ulta.com. Hopefully at some point they’ll launch it at other locations but as of now Ulta is the spot to grab this one.

I love this stuff for one reason, it doesn’t promise me the world. It’s a one trick pony that clearly states it what it is meant for that being moisture nothing more, nothing less. The brand doesn’t spend a whole bunch of time bending your ear with promises to depuff your puffy eyes, erase your dark circles, eliminate your fine lines, etc…etc…

None of that.

They simply tell you this is an “indulgent” treatment with moisturizing ingredients. Thank you Yes to Coconuts for being so honest. Their theory and mentality, just like my own, is to treat your finer lines and wrinkles with moisture. Lots and lots of moisture.

This contains virgin coconut oil, shea butter, and argan oil. It has a whipped light fluffy consistency that absorbs in a snap under eyes. I think balm could potentially be misleading as at first I thought this was some sort of eye stick. After opening it I realized it was in a pump and in that case I thought maybe it was thicker. Yanno balm!? So I thought thick, creamy. Nope, it’s very light and fluffy and that’s fine by me as it absorbed in a snap.

I wouldn’t say it was heavily moisturizing for a night eye cream but it still softens, smooths, and hydrates the under eye very, very nicely. I’ve taken to use it as a day eye cream because it wears well under concealer and provides just the right amount of moisture so my finer lines look a heck of a lot better.

All in all Yes To Coconut Ultra Hydrating Overnight Eye Balm excels at what it was developed for, moisture! This is a lightweight, lightly moisturizing eye cream that should work great for those with normal to moderately dry eyes. Personally I have pretty dry eyes but I like using a lighter eye cream in the day versus the heavier ones I prefer in the evening. Although this formula is marketed as a nightly eye cream I like it as a nice, light daily eye cream. For sensitive users it does have a soft coconut milk smell.

As I said I love the brand markets it for one thing and one thing only and it works great at what it was formulated to do!

Good stuff.

Yes To Coconut Ultra Hydrating Overnight Eye Balm is available exclusively at Ulta and Ulta.com.

    Muse, thanks for the review. I’m going to get this the next time I’m out. I think I saw this a Target.

  • Jennifer

    Muse, thank you for the review! You saved me a few bucks that’s for sure. I was really hoping this would be much thicker or like you mentioned, an actual balm!

    • Isabella Muse

      It is not sadly 🙁 It’s very light and fluffy! Great for daily use but if you’re dry you’ll need something much more hydrating in the PM!

  • Brian

    I also love that they didn’t make crazy claims, like many other skincare products and brands continue to do. I wish they hadn’t included the fragrance ingredient though, as my eyes react badly to overly fragrant moisturizers. Is the coconut scent strong in this, Muse?

    • Isabella Muse

      Sorry Brian! I should have addressed that in my review, actually editing now! It does indeed have a coconut fragrance. It’s…mmm not super strong but it is there! If you’re not too sensitive it might not bug you! It’s not a gross smell, it’s actually a very true coconut milk fragrance.

    Ulta exclusive? I guess we won’t be getting it up here in Canada. We don’t have Ulta here.
    I really want to try this out. My concealer has been streaking and cracking so much that i have flakes on my cheeks. Eeeeek!

    Muse, S.O.S.

    • Isabella Muse

      awww I hear ya lana! likewise! I look horrible lately! 🙁 Try a little tiny bit of vaseline overnight on your drier areas!

  • Melissa

    I just bought this last week and I really like it! I, too, expected something thicker but I am pleased with it. I also have the night cream and I really that as well. I have a feeling I am going to work my way through this whole line. I agree..I like the honesty ..they aren’t promising my 47 yr old eyes will look 20 again! I like the smell…it’s not perfumey at all…kind of just fresh and clean.

    • Isabella Muse

      I like that too! Just marketing it for moisture! That works for me 😀

  • amy

    Hmmm… I may pick this up for daytime… I normally just use straight shea butter & argan or jojoba oil at night, but I’ve been looking for a good, more “natural” eye cream to wear under makeup.+

  • Katherine T.

    I normally stay away from fragrance in skincare, but it is the last ingredient, and I love the Yes to Coconut smell, so I’m going to have to give this a try because my under eye is really dry, and I need something for daytime that will wear well under concealer.

  • Iris

    Thanks for the review. I heard “coconut” and thought this may be too oily. Glad to hear it isn’t.

  • Danielle

    Now only if other brands were honset! We wouldn’t buy the whole store trying to find something that works! lol Sounds like a great day under makeup eye cream!

  • Mary Nguyen

    Thanks for the great review. Just wondering what you use for a night eye cream? My eye area is also pretty dry. Thanks! I visit your site everyday, and it is so helpful!

    • Isabella Muse

      Hi mary! Sorry for the delayed reply! Hydroshield for under my eyes from Dr Denesse! thank you! So glad you love the site!
