Simple Soothing Eye Balm

Happy Sunday everyone! :) This summer I'm not working a normal Monday-Friday work schedule, so I tend to loose track of the days of the week. I've had a lot going on this week with work, but my boyfriend and I have also rescued a kitten! We have named him Levi (the boyfriends choice, but it's growing on me!). Right now we're just trying to put some meat on his bones, since he is really thin right now. He's loving his new home, and we love him! :)

For the last couple of months I've been using Simple Skin Care's Soothing Eye Balm as my daily eye cream,  and I have to say that I really like it! I think that this eye balm is great for anyone who just needs a light cream. This eye cream won't brighten dark circles or smooth out deep wrinkles, but it's great for soothing tired eyes, as the bottle claims. I like using this in the summer since it is so lightweight. 

I use this every morning and night after I cleanse my face. I pat this cream underneath my eyes with my ring fingers, since that finger applies the least amount of pressure. This eye balm absorbs quickly, which I love because I'm often in a hurry in the mornings! I like to let my moisturizers sink in for at least 10 minutes before I apply my makeup, but this eye cream does absorb in under a minute if you're in a rush!

While I do really like this eye balm for the hot summer months, I think I need something a bit creamier in the winter, as I do get a bit drier skin in the colder months. I highly recommend Olay's Professional Pro-X Eye Restoration Complex, it's amazing if you need something a bit heavier. 

What is your favourite eye cream? Have you tried Simple's Soothing Eye Balm? :)

Disclosure: This product was sent to me for my honest review.


  1. Have you seen any improvement?

    1. I do see an improvement! Whenever I apply the balm, my eyes feel instantly relaxed and soothed. I also think that my undereyes are firmer since using this cream :)
