Balm For The Soul
Day 36: La Mer's The Eye Balm
I want an eye cream to accomplish many things. The cream needs to hydrate and keep my skin flake-free. I want it to de-puff, hide dark circles, eliminate wrinkles, and not cause milia issues. It would be lovely if it could make me look like I had 8 hours of sleep. La Mer's The Eye Balm managed to achieve some of my eye cream desires. It is an ultra thick cream that combines a triple
concentration of Crème de la Mer's original Miracle Broth with marine extracts. The texture is thick like a sock. It soothes and eliminates skin dryness. This saved me from the blistering winter of 2010.
The Eye Balm did not cause any milia issues for me. I have used heavy eye creams in the past that have produced two tiny skin beads to pop up under my right eye. These irk me to no end.
The Eye Balm did not deliver on any kind of brightness or depuffery. My eyes still looked exhausted. My wrinkles were still present and accounted for.
So my review is a mixed.
I am still in the market for an eye cream that will change my life.
