Rave: Burts Bees Sensitive Eye Cream Review

Tuesday 25 September 2012


I've only just recently become aware of the skin around my eyes. Since having my daughter I now have bags under my eyes and get dark circles. Previously, I never had that. While I'm still (relatively) young, my main eye concern isn't about wrinkles (yet) but more about making the skin look plumper and more awake.

A while ago I recieved the Burts Bees Sensitive Eye Cream as a magazine GWP. I was using a Natio eye gel (which I loved) and waited till I finished that before starting this. I've been using the Burts Bees cream for around 2 or 3 weeks now, and I really like it.

Because it's made for sensitive skin, you don't get the stinging that sometimes happens. I find it's more likely to happen after my night cleansing once I've gotten rid of the eye make up and mascara, but have never had irritation issues with this.

I like that it helps to give the delicate skin around my eyes moisture but it doesn't contain anything that will make it irritate.

One thing that has really impressed me is the fact that it's light. I've found with other eye creams, they've made the skin around the eyes break out with milia. But I have not had any issues with this, even though I use it both day and night.

I would recommend this for anyone that's interested in using an eye cream, but isn't looking for a anti aging eye cream. 

Do you use an eye cream? What would you suggest I try next time?

PS I normally like to take my own photos, but it's been one of those days and I can't be bothered transferring pictures from my camera to the computer. 

While this was a gift with purchase (essentially a freebie), I paid for the magazine myself. All thoughts and views are completely my own, and are always 100% honest. See my disclosure policy here.


  1. I used to avoid Burt's bees like the plague for no reason at all but I've started to really love it after using an amazing lip balm from them. I remember when this came free with a magazine and I gave it a miss. I totally regret that now!

  2. This sounds like a nice eye cream. I hate the stinging that comes with some so I'd be interested to try this. I am currently using the Benefit eye cream and it is really nice, helps with my dark circles and no stinging.

  3. It sounds great, love to try it after I finish my Clinque eye cream. :)

  4. I have been using eye cream since I was 13-14, have always loved it:) I often mix it up by using a moisturising one in the morning and an anti-wrinkle one in the evening. It works for me:)

  5. Nice post,, i just hate of irritating cram ,, who give me lot of trouble,, when i use the Chinese Eye Cream he not give me trouble , he provide me so much ,, i want
