In the colder months, we often reach for richer, more nourishing textures to smooth our skin and replenish any dry patches in need of a little TLC.
Although balm textures are commonly used to treat lips and extremely dry skin, they have recently been used in eye treatments to smooth fine lines and hydrate the delicate skin around your eyes.
Melting into the skin, the dense consistency balms are perfect for those with very dry skin under the eyes and work wonders of very sensitive skin, restoring comfort and even minimising the appearance of dark circles.
Perfect as an addition to your winter skincare routine, we have curated an edit of our 5 favourite eye balms to add into your routine to soothe, hydrate and take care of the skin underneath and around your eyes.
