Another adorable product from the Tony Moly Panda’s Dream line, this eye balm comes in solid form in a twist-up stick. Its main function is to cool and hydrate the under-eye area, and it can be used either under or over make-up. Though whilst I love the convenience of this product, it’s not really something I use every day. I often get tired or puffy eyes, but I find the cooling effect is very mild, and though I understand they have to keep it gentle for the sensitive eye area, I’d prefer it to be a bit more tingly and refreshing than it is at present. As for the hydration aspect, I don’t find it to be especially moisturising in comparison to my regular eye creams and it leaves a slight tacky finish which isn’t ideal if you’re trying to apply make-up over the top. What I do use this product for, strangely, is when I’ve washed my face and am about to apply a face mask, either in sheet or cream form, as it gives my eyes just the bit of refreshing hydration they need whilst I have the mask on before I come in with my “proper” eye cream and the rest of my skincare routine afterwards. I also like this product for travelling, it’s ideal if you’re on a plane and just want a quick cooling, moisturising boost without the hassle of a tube or pot of eye cream. Overall I think this product does have it’s uses, however I wouldn’t use it to replace my current eye cream or rush out to buy another if it ran out.
