Mineralixirs Eye Nourishing Oil Balm
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.
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.
emollient, moist, effective, concentrated
For the cost, the jar looks small. This lasts a LONG time! I have it on auto delivery with QVC. It may be a little on the higher end, but bare minerals always is very generous with the amt of product they supply. Try it. I love it! I bet you will, too.
I use it in conjunction with the cleansing oil. I LOVE that product and have it on auto delivery with QVC as well.
BUY IT! TRY IT! USE IT! LOVE IT!
Best Eye Cream Ever
I have tried every eye cream made trying to decrease under eye puffiness and this is the only one that made a difference. I also had a lot of irritation on my eyelids and after trying almost all the eye products and throwing them away, this worked miracles. I absolutely love this eye cream!
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS AND THE ELIXER!
I'm 57 and a devoted BM user. Over the years I've tried several different products designed to help those of us with glorious, aging skin. By far the elixirs have moved to my #1 skincare item. Not only does the oil rehydrate my skin beautifully, but used in conjunction with the balm...well I can only say this is truly a winning combination. I not only use the balm on my eye area but around my lips. Drinking from straws unfortunately gives you those ugly little mouth wrinkles and this combo is quickly reducing the effects.
If you are in doubt...Get a sample...try it and you too will enjoy the amazing results from the elixir line.
Keep it up BM, you've done it AGAIN! :-)
I'm 64 and have fine lines around my eyes. I am using my first jar and love it! The product hydrates and treats my eye area ... Minimizing and softening the fine lines. I apply the balm after my shower and allow it to set 20 minutes prior to applying make up. I also use the balm on my lips which is also awesome. I recommend the balm for eyes and lips.
Nourishing to my eyes
I have deep lines and fine lines that needs this type of product. I have bought 2 just to carry one with me. Love it !!!
Mixed feelings about this eye balm
What I like:
1. the application—warming the balm with your ring finger and patting under the eye.
2. absorbs pretty quickly
3. pleasant scent
What I don't like:
1. high price point
2. some of the ingredients which I didn't realize were in there before purchasing soybean extract, grape seed oil, corn oil; as I mentioned in my review for the Mineralixirs Cleansing Oil, I try to avoid all PUFA as much as possible and applying this to my skin as almost as bad as ingesting it. After I use it up I will look elsewhere unless it's reformulated without those oils.
3. Being in a small jar there is greater risk for contamination than if it were dispensed in a pump, although I understand this formulation makes that impossible.
I love this product, and am hooked for life. I have not tried the Renew & Hydrate Eye Cream so I cannot compare, but this one is great. It feels so silky and smooth (not greasy), and is SO lightweight you don't even notice it. It doesn't clog my pores, and it is great for sensitive skin. I have used it every night before bed for the past month and the skin is less puffy around my eyes, my "bags" are practically nonexistent, the fine lines around my eyes diminished and became less noticeable (although not gone completely) and the dark circles faded slightly. I hope that I will continue to see even more positive results with continued use of the product.
One thing everyone should know. The product is solid. You just have to gently rub your fingertip over the top of it for a few seconds to release the oil (warms instantly). Don't try to stir it or anything, that's not how it is designed to work. You don't need a lot either, it spreads very well so one jar will probably last 6 months (maybe even longer).
I was looking for something to put on my eyes and this is perfect. I have super sensitive skin and this stuff is amazing and does not bother my skin at all. The skin around my eyes is softer and the dark circles underneath have slightly faded. Looking forward to trying to other "mineralixers" products. Also it has a nice light scent that is refreshing.
