Hello everybody. This is my first blog and I am delighted to write on this website. Today I am going to review Burt’s bees radiance eye cream. My concern has always been puffy and tired looking eyes as my job is completely related to using computers. My sister gifted this to me and I thought of giving it a try.

How to use: Use in the morning or evening. Place small dots around eye area and gently smooth into skin
The product is very soft and creamy to touch. It is non-greasy and is absorbed easily. You can refer to the pictures below for an overview on the greasiness of the product. The cream vanishes in about 5 seconds in the skin. The spreadability of the cream is pretty good. After usage I found that my puffiness had almost vanished and the under eye area looked almost bright. The fragrance is a bit waxy and herby but not unpleasant. The smell is very strong though and you do breathe in the scent for a long time after you apply the cream.
Royal jelly is supposed to be a super duper ingredient which is not found in any other eye cream.
The skin around the eyes looks firmer and hydrated. As it is completely non -greasy it can also be worn under makeup and in fact it will serve as a wonderful base. As my skin is super sensitive I was a bit wary about the royal jelly part of the product as it comes from a natural base and may contain pollens etc. But I must say that my fears were baseless and I had no reaction/ breakouts/ redness whatsoever.
Although the container it comes in appears really small, it will last for a long time as you need only a tiny amount every time even if you plan to use it twice a day. Though I don’t like the fact that it comes in a tub and not a tube (I don’t like sticking my fingers in any product). Also if you put the tub in your purse the cream is settled under the lid (which is again a personal dislike)
All in all is a very effective product and I would definitely recommend it to everyone
