Nina’s Bees – Eye Balm with Propolis
What our experts say...
I like how earthy, uncomplicated, and natural this product feels. It is extremely nourishing under the eyes, especially for a dry or dehydrated eye area, without feeling sticky. It does sit on the skin without absorbing all the way, which I didn’t personally mind as it gave my under eye area a healthy glow. Using bees (or their by-products like honey) can be a controversial topic in beauty and wellness, so it is reassuring to hear the founder state that the well-being of the bees is their primary focus and priority when making the products.
The most surprising product, I did not expect it to be as good as it is. This is such a beautiful balm – it glides on the eye area and instantly hydrates and soothes (especially tired or sore eyes, post swimming or crying). It is so nurturing and such a generous pot for how little you use each time. I love the brand’s recycling efforts, the noticeable lack of plastic and that the packaging can be reused.
For me, this is the ultimate night time eye treatment as it creates a gentle and protective barrier over my orbital skin whilst leaving it deeply moisturised by morning. Perfect for sensitive skin, I love that this is in a recyclable (or reusable) aluminium container and that no plastic waste is generated in its manufacture! I also really appreciate that this is a water-free formulation, which enables it to be preservative free and yet have great longevity.
I really love how nourishing this beautiful eye balm is. Only a tiny amount is needed to gently pat into the eye area. After one week of use, the delicate areas around my eyes feel softer and plumper. I absolutely adore that it comes in a recyclable/reusable aluminium tin. I’m such a fan of Nina’s Bees and her huge efforts to take care of the local environment through beekeeping and education. I also truly appreciate the brand’s efforts to use aluminium tins (which are endlessly recyclable) and zero waste packaging for products.
