beauty scoop | elizabeth dehn for one love organics vitamin e active moisture eye balm

In honor of turning one year older today (yes, I celebrate all month long, but today is my actual birthday), it felt appropriate to review an eye balm … because, well, I can hear the crow’s feet coming.

When I got a facial at my favorite local spa, my sweet aesthetician sent me home with a sample of Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics Vitamin E Active Moisture Eye Balm.

Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics Vitamin E Active Moisture Eye Balm is a rich, waterless eye balm that intensely hydrates the skin around the eyes.

I reserve it for intense nighttime hydration, and my delicate eye skin seems to crave it post-cleansing and toning.

Because of how dense this waterless eye balm is, I’m still doing just fine with my sample size after using it pretty consistently at night for the past nine weeks.

As you can see in the picture above, this is truly a balm; that’s a thick, solid serving of goodness in there, and the warmth of your touch gently melts just the right amount onto your finger for you to dab onto your undereyes and corners of your eyes.

If you’re heavy-handed like me, you will appreciate this formulation. You would have to press with great force into this balm to break it up and get way too much on your finger! As with most concentrated products, a little goes a long way!

Plus, you don’t want to use too much of any eye cream, balm or serum or risk inducing milia, those unsightly white bumps that occur when skin flakes get caught in small pockets near the skin’s surface (I am prone to these evil little bumps!).

Let’s take a look at the ingredients list:

Raw organic butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter, organic helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, punica granatum (pomegranate) sterols, polyhydroxystearic acid, tocopherol (vitamin e), raw virgin rubus idaeus (red raspberry) seed oil, organic euphrasia officinalis (eyebright) extract, organic panax quinquefolius (american ginseng) extract, organic glycrrhiza glabra (licorice) root extract, organic lavandula angustifolia (bulgarian lavender) essential oil, organic foeniculum vulgare dulce (fennel) oil

One Love Organics says this eye balm is great for depuffing and brightening when used during the day, but I’m pretty committed to my daytime eye cream, so I can’t speak to this claim. Has anybody else had good results using it during the day?

At $48 for a half-ounce that seems to last forever, Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics Vitamin E Active Moisture Eye Balm is fairly priced and is the perfect winter eye balm packed with vitamins A, D and, of course, E. I’m a fan and will absolutely repurchase this whenever my sample runs out (which will be???).

    Happy birthday!! It’s the same for me – my birthday was early this month but honestly I’m celebrating all month.

    Sigh. I’m going to buy my first eye product ever, because I can’t escape it any more, and I’m thinking it might be LBF’s Decouverte. I did have the chance to test out the EDOLO eye balm at A Night for Green Beauty and thought it smelled really good for an eye balm!

      Thanks lady! November birthday gals are the best :) No bias, obvi. I hope you had a fantastic birthday, too, and end the birthday month in style! LBF’s Decouverte is also a staple for me … I use it on those waaaay too late nights where I know I’m going to need extra help. I love the feel of a beautiful eye serum!

        November gals do rock more ;) I’m really sold on that description of Decouverte!

    I have this and use it in the daytime; I like it, but the packaging drives me nuts! Apparently I have perpetually cold ones (ok, I do, lol), but I can never get just a teeny bit on my finger…ends up getting under my nails and ugh, fail.

    • http://www.kimberlyloc.com/ kimberlyloc

      Oh no! LOL. I just have this sample size so I haven’t dealt with the real packaging. What exactly do you mean? How does it get under your nails, lol? Is your balm not hard and melt too easily?

      • http://eyeheartit.blogspot.com Larie

        The jar opening is small, so when I try to get some on my finger, there isn’t much room to rub my finger around and warm up the product…it usually just digs straight under my nail, which is gross.

    Happy birthday Kim! I’ve been celebrating mine all week too. I’ve been wanting to try Elizabeth Dehn products for some time. I checked her website and she has some sample options that look good. Have you tried any?

    • http://www.kimberlyloc.com/ kimberlyloc

      Thank you, happy birthday week / month to you, too! I have tried this eye balm and the vitamin C serum. I like them both! I will review the vitamin C serum in-depth soon. I would also like to get the vitamin C cleansing oil … have heard rave reviews on it from my aesthetician and the spa director here in town. I love that there is a sampling system … so smart! Getcha some! :)

    Happy Birthday! :) I still have yet to try this eye balm and from your review it sounds great. I absolutely love all the EDOLO products! My favorite is definitely the Cleansing Oil, it smells delicious and leaves my skin refreshed and glowing. Also can’t live without One Love Organics Skin Savior!

    • http://www.kimberlyloc.com/ kimberlyloc

      Thank you! Skin Savior is definitely a staple … I use it to cleanse but also to pat onto my cheeks during cold, windy weather. I need to try the ED4OLO vitamin b cleansing oil … have heard great things! I like the vitamin C serum, too, and will have to get a review of that soon! OLO is killing it these days. Pretty packaging, straightforward products, fair prices. Win, win, win!
