Rated 5 out of 5 by Cookie3 Great for sensitive eyes!
I had been having the hardest time finding something that did not irritate my eyes. And, by irritate, I am talking about making them itch and swell...usually after a few days of use. This began for me when I used a well-known, very expensive product around my eyes. Not only did my eyes swell, after that everything else I had been using irritated them. I went to the dermatologist. Tried creams. I ended up using a petroleum jelly to give me some moisture...although it was greasy and no anti-aging benefit. That is, until I tried this. This balm saved me! This balm is gentle and effective and I love it! Please do not take it away! This balm is the bomb!

This is the best moisturizer for around the eyes that I have ever used. This was very nourishing, yet lightweight. It never irritated my eyes and minimized my wrinkles. I am so disappointed that this product has been discontinued and hope Bare Escentuals will reconsider this decision.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DoctorH Marvelous for dried, itchy eye areas
I'm joining lots of others in begging BE to keep the Mineralixir line, at least as a second line. Lots of companies have two lines catering to two separate categories of users. I love the new Sensorsls for skin treatment, but for pure comfort, nothing else has worked. I'm 73, and the Mineralixir Eye Balm is the ONLY product in the last 50 years that has made my itchy, dry eye area comfortable. (BE, you have my permission to include my age above.)
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sammi Please do not discontinue this product
This eye balm is amazing for sensitive skin around eyes. It is one of the few eye creams/balms that I can use without any irritation, and it truly hydrates while reducing aging. Please do not discontinue it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Equestrian I Love The Mineralixirs Line!!!
I just turned 46 and my skin is in great condition but I do have some problem areas around my eyes. Too much rubbing from other eye irritating products (and a bad habit). This product soothes and hydrates and makes those fine lines disappear. The texture is not grainy at all. I use it at night and wake up to refreshed hydrated skin. I use the 5 oil blend for my entire face at night and as my first part of my beauty routing after cleansing in the am. My skin just drinks this stuff in. I also use it on my neck and decollate area and what a difference the hydration makes. I do not break out from it, the product goes a long way and I have not had any irritation from either of them (5 oil blend or the eye nourishing oil balm) I am very disappointed to hear that they are going to be discontinued. It seems that every time that I find something that really does what it says, it gets discontinued and the search for a replacement begins all over again. Grateful that my go to store for cosmetics has such a generous return policy! Leslie, please reconsider this line for those of us that really really love it. Prior to finding and using this, I considered having my eyes "done" with a CO 2 laser. I may have to rethink and go that route :( Did it before but unfortunately my last bad habit... contributes to wrinkles so five years later, a re-do is in order. Yes I am going to be giving it up this year (the bad habit) it is a hard one, and I have tried multiple times, but I understand it takes a number of quit attempts to get there. I will get there. Keep bringing on the great make up colors Leslie - I will work on keeping my skin in great shape by quitting smoking ;) was afraid to say that out in print since it is such a taboo these days, but if I am going to commit to it, may as well state it in public!
Rated 5 out of 5 by TM1031 Best Eye Balm I ever used
I have combination skin and have only needed to use moisturizers and oils for the last couple of years. Heavy oil products still tend to make me break out. This product hydrated around my eyes, reduced fine lines and didn't give me a break out. There's nothing in the new line that would even substitute for mineralixirs eye nourishing oil balm. I'm so upset I won't be able to reorder.

LOVE!!! This product is amazing and has totally brightened up my eye area in just the week I have been using it. It is not grainy at all it is smooth and makes my eyes feel GREAT! This is a must buy!
Rated 1 out of 5 by eringailsays I'm a loyal Bare user, but...
I wish I could return this product. I started using it a few weeks after I got it (finished using another product first) and I don't feel/see any difference. Plus, it has a grainy texture which is annoying to my under eye area. - part of the area I'm trying to improve!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Sunprincess Very dissatisfied
I have been a bare minerals customer for years and love the powder foundations but this product is the first one I don't like.. It says an oil balm but it has this weird texture like grain,
It's not smooth at all so it is impossible to use for the day under make up..
I am using it only for the night because I just don't to throw it away but it is definetley not worth the money.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hrhkris Totally worth it!!
This eye balm really did diminish the fine lines around my eyes, and although it's a solid oil it did not leave my eye area looking or feeling greasy at all. Don't worry about the price. . . First of all, the product does exactly what it says it will do. (That alone makes it worth it in my book!) Secondly, this little jar will last a loooong time.
