Burt's Bees Sensitive Eye Cream

Burt's Bees Sensitive Eye Cream($15) is a lightweight moisturizing eye cream with Cotton Extract for sensitive skin that helps soothe & de-puff the eye area. I have dry, sensitive skin so I prefer light eye creams for the day & richer ones for the night. Because of sensitive skin, I am also prone to milia around my eyes from some richer formulas.

What I like about Burt's Bees Sensitive Eye Cream:

  • Very lightweight and great for daytime use. 
  • Works perfectly well under makeup.
  • Absorbs really fast and does not feel oily. I've been using it for a while now & haven't had milia or any other allergic reaction.
  • Hygienic tube packaging.
  • Fragrance-free, 99% natural.
  • Very soothing, keeps eye area moisturized for a very long time.

 The not so good things about Burt's Bees Sensitive Eye Cream:
  •  Although the sqeeze tube is hygenic, sometimes too much product just pops out. 
  • It has a slight fragrance, almost medicinal, something I'm not very fond of.
  • If you have very dry skin and fine lines, this may not be sufficient. You may need to follow up with a richer cream. Not really a con since this does not claim to reduce dark circles or fine lines.
Overall, although pricey for drugstore standards, it is a great pick especially if you have sensitive skin since it works so well under makeup, providing a good base for concealer. I do use a richer cream during the night sometimes but I love the fact that I can use this everyday without having to feel heavy or worry about clogging my pores. It is not a cure for dark circles, fine lines or a miracle cream but, a great pick for sensitive skin in general.

  1. I never find the "sensitive" range at Target..they had a coupon going on recently, so I was very interested in finding it :(

  2. Yeah, they are mostly out of stock..Walgreens &CVS are well stocked check there :)

  3. Too bad Burts Bee brand is not available in India. I would love to get my hands on their products XD.

  4. Walgreens and CVS ..okay...I really do need to explore the world beyond Target :D :D

  5. @crazypoplock - I hope so too! They have some amazing products :(

  6. @Rads - It happens to me too since target has more than just cosmetics & skincare :P

  7. I have a very sensitive skin too. I would have loved to try that one out, but as I'm starting to see some wrinkles and fine lines popping up, I rather have a product that reduce these.
    I'm using All About Eyes from Clinique, and am really happy about it. It also works well under make-up, and it does reduce dark circles, depuffs, and reduces fine lines. The only's dubble the price then Burt's Bees, but worth it.

  8. I might have to check this out, thanks for the review! I've been using Clinique and it's just too pricey (and I'm getting milia)

  9. @G - I have fine lines & wrinkles too but this works for the day :)I'm yet to try All About Eyes. So glad you found something that works for you!

  10. @Wendy - You're welcome! This is perfect if you want something light...I haven't gotten milia from this :)

  11. Aside from those eye creams black tea also has astonishing restorative effects that can help make your eyes look younger. The tea's antioxidants help fight free radicals that cause premature aging, eye bags and more. Apparently, using the tea bags on your eyes can help soothe and relieve eye puffiness as well as dark under eye circles.

  12. Thanks for the review.
    I was wondering... did it only prevent the milia, or did it get rid of the milia? I've been looking at this other peel that claims to get rid of it, but its quite pricey. So if this does get rid of it, I'll try this instead. (: Thanks!

    1. It doesn't get rid of it, just doesn't cause it because it is gentle! :)

    2. alright, thanks! Have you ever had milia?

    3. I have but I've never treated them. Just left them to heal on their own..
