Two things drew me to The Jojoba Company Cucumber & Guava Firming Eye Balm when it was offered for review. I was immediately drawn to it because of The Jojoba Company which is a skincare brand I admire and have reviewed several items from. I have a collection of products which often get used no matter what else I’m testing. Next take the fact that it’s a FIRMING EYE BALM and I’m all over it.

I am a dedicated eye cream user, day and night. I think being so enamored with eye creams and balms has helped my eyes belie my age. The Jojoba Company Cucumber & Guava Firming Eye Balm is one that definitely helps this way because it’s known for rehydrating dry skin. Once upon a time my skin was oily as could be but age has changed that.

I have pros and cons about this eye cream but the pros way outweigh the cons.

  • The Jojoba Company Cucumber & Guava Firming Eye Balm contains many efficient ingredients to soothe the delicate skin around my eyes: cucumber, guava, aloe vera, jojoba, and pomegranate.
  • It feels wonderful on my eyes and a little goes a long way. I’ve used it both on my lids and undereyes with emphasis on those pesky crows feet. I notice less puffiness especially in the morning when I awake. My eye area feels very soft. And I’m using way less concealer.
  • I love the packaging. It’s so sanitary and I get the right amount for both eyes with one gentle pump.

The Jojoba Company grows their own jojoba so we know there’s a purity in the products that can be relied upon. According to The Jojoba Company “That means that skin lets jojoba deliver its goodness all the way down to the cellular and matrix levels. It is naturally antibiotic, antiviral, antifungal, analgesic, anti-inflammatory and hypoallergenic.  Jojoba also contains the healing vitamins A, D and E and Omega 6 and 9 essential fatty acids. Jojoba does not oxidize and is very stable.”jojoba co eye balm ingredients

My con? You know I’m not a fan of fragrance and it takes me about 15 minutes before I don’t notice it. But you know what? I can tolerate it for that short amount of time since I love the effects of this eye balm. I doubt most of you would notice it but I’m extra sensitive. The fragrance does make me aware that it’s working its magic on me.

Key Ingredients:

  • Pure Australian Jojoba – antioxidant, rich in Vitamins A, D & E, hydrating
  • Cucumber – soothing
  • Green Tea – antioxidant, visibly reduces puffiness
  • Guava – age defying
  • Vitamins E & B – antioxidants
  • Horsetail Extract – stimulates collagen production
  • Pomegranate – promotes skin elasticity

It’s time you got on the wagon and tried out The Jojoba Company’s products. I’m testing a new serum from them that has convinced me even more that it’s a brand you want to have in your life.  —  Marcia

Top 10 Tuesday picks favorite eye creams

Give me eye cream now! Give me eye balm immediately! Give me eye serums ASAP. If it’s for the delicate eye area I want it. I’ve reviewed a lot of eye creams so picking just 10 (or 9 as you’ll see) was extremely difficult. Some came to mind instantly because I’m either using them or I’ve bought them again. Others are ones I really enjoyed but picking between them was a difficult choice. My Top Ten are ones I would recommend without a doubt so let’s see what they are:

1. ALGENIST EYE RENEWAL BALM –  I’m on my second jar of the Algenist plus I’ve used up some sample sizes. This is the first eye cream I thought of when we picked this topic. I chose this for my desert island Beauty Spotlight Team and I’d chose it again.

2. KATE SOMERVILLE KateCeuticals MULTI-ACTIVE EYE CREAM – Kate Somerville makes more than one eye cream. I’m sure they are all wonderful but this one is the most wonderful. My eyes drank this up and begged for more. If you are looking for true anti-aging properties, splurge on this.

3. SOMME INSTITUTE EYE – I’ve repurchased every product from Somme Institute. At first I didn’t repurchase EYE but as soon as I was done with it, I missed it. Even though it doesn’t contain SPF it’s one of my favorite daytime eye creams. It’s lightweight and concealer doesn’t crease when I mix it with Somme Eye. Watch for this on Hautelook.

4. SENNA LIFT AND LIGHTEN EYE CREAM – It’s been four years since I reviewed this Senna Eye Cream but I haven’t forgotten it. I bought a second jar at IMATS because I love how it lightens my dark circles and hydrates under my eyes. Plus it’s still only $28 even after all this time.

5. YBF CORRECT – Simple name, not so simple protect. Your Best Face (YBF) tells you succinctly what their products will do and then they prove it by doing research and using the best ingredients to make sure their products work. Correct works!

6. YES TO BLUEBERRIES EYE FIRMING TREATMENT – This is my latest eye cream. I’ve been using it daily for about 6 weeks and I can’t bring myself to move on. It totally surprised me since I’m not a mass market skincare person in general but this has kept my eyes looking less lined, my dark circles at bay and has rid me of morning puffiness. For $15-20 (depending on where you buy it) this is a must to try.

7. LIFT LAB LIFT & FIRM EYE CREAM – The gel like texture of Lift Lab’s Eye Cream is very soothing. It’s lightweight and you don’t even realize you have it on during the daytime. What you will realize is how soft the skin around your eyes feels and how your puffiness isn’t really noticeable.

8. EXUVIANCE AGE REVERSE EYE CONTOUR – The name tells you one of the reasons I like this. I won this in a giveaway almost 4 years ago and wish I had it again. My memory is short when it comes to “why did I come into this room” but not on eye creams. It helps firm the collagen around eyes. I need this again.

9. DERMAdoctor WRINKLE REVENGE RESCUE & PROTECT EYE BALM – This does it all. It moisturizes, firms, reduces puffiness, helps eliminate dark circles, helps with fine lines and bakes cookies. Ok, I’m kidding about the cookies but it would if it could. It’s thicker than most of the others I’ve mentioned but sometimes you need that.

10. EYES by TO GO SPA EYE MASKS – I’m cheating. I can’t help it. When you need a way to make your eyes look less lined and more relaxed you want something like an eye mask. I’ve tried and loved quite a few but I always go back to EYES by ToGoSpa. They now have 3 varieties and it’s hard to pick which you want but you won’t go wrong with any of them. These are collagen eye masks that you want any time you want to look your best.
