Tula Eye Balm Stick Review
If I’m honest, the eye area is my biggest concern with aging. I fear unwanted fine lines under my eyes and apply eye cream daily. I tried both the pink and blue Tula stick under my eyes a couple weeks ago because I saw some of my favorite bloggers using it. I was curious to see how I would like it. I want to note that it is a VERY convenient size for travel and my ever growing makeup bag. First off the bat, I love that it is clean beauty which means it is free from alcohol, fragrance, parabens, mineral oil, etc. Which gives me peace of mind. I have already used Tula moisturizer and cleanser, which I have really liked. I have since given both to my tween who is now in need of skincare. She was having breakouts and I plan to only give her clean skincare and eventually makeup. Why would I ruin her virgin skin with parabens, mineral oil, and alcohol? Girls, I’m feeling old, I have a tween!! Hence the need for good skincare, less stress and 8 glasses of water.
While these don’t take away the need for eye cream, they add another step. But a welcome one that has benefits. After all, I’m still loyal to my bliss eye cream, here are some benefits to these convenient eye sticks:
The blue one: has a SUPER COOLING EFFECT and acts like a dewy highlighter. After a long day staring at my laptop, I like to keep it nearby for a pick-me-up. 1850 reviews with almost 5 perfect stars don’t lie!
The pink one: has rosehip oil (a natural retinol alternative) and hydrating rosewater which SO many benefits one of which makes me look more “awake.” The pink has a slight shimmer. I’m all about an “instant pick-me-up.” The cool thing is, if I use it over my makeup, it appears like a highlighter. Score!
How do they work?
I applied it before concealer for a cooling effect and after makeup as a highlighter. I tried both ways as some days are a 5 min make-up job, and other days, maybe a 10 minute make-up day. Either way, I added this refreshing stick to my routine.
The Low Down
If I could get just one, I’d probably get the rose glow and get it for the rose hip oil and rosewater ingredients. If you’re planning on traveling, it is a great pick me up for the plane ride both for convenient size and much needed hydration.
Have you tried either stick? I’d love to hear about your experience.
