Review - Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream

I think every blogger went out and purchased Glamour magazine for the free Balance Me samples. Yes, you guessed it I did as well and opted for the Wonder eye cream. Balance Me products are made in the UK and promise to be free from parabens, sulphates, mineral oils, silicones, DEA, PEGs, propylene glycol, artificial fragrance and colours.

The Wonder Eye Cream is claiming to brighten and smooth the delicate eye area, nothing usual there. It is full of wonderful ingredients like coconut, rosehip, jojoba and carrot oils.

The cream is light in texture, pleasant to use and absorbs quickly. I have not suffered any irritations whilst using this product and as you know that is a common problem for me. My eye area is extremely sensitive. Sadly, there was no wow factor for me with this cream. I neither loved it nor hated it. I already own Green People eye cream and it is very similar. As far as I am concerned they perform identically on my skin. The one difference I can spot which is important to me is Balance Me eye cream costs £20 for 15ml and Green People around £8 for 10ml. Hand on my heart and I am no expert but can I really justify buying the full size. This is not the first time I have felt this way about Balance Me products. Last year I reviewed the Balance Me Rose Otto Body Wash which was pleasant to use but I can't get excited by shower gels!

I certainly recommend the brand for their free from ingredient policy. I would not grumble if these appeared in my Christmas Stocking, however, for those on a budget you can find equivalent products with similar ingredients for less money.
