My First Impression of the Product
The first thing I noticed about the product was the color. I love all these colorful balms being created in the green beauty world (such as May Lindstrom's Blue Cocoon and Mahalo's Rare Indigo Beauty Balm). I also noticed the little gold flecks. What a luxurious addition!
Scent and Texture
The scent is light and sweet. Slightly citrusy with a hint of vanilla. The texture is smooth and creamy.
Like any balm, this product is slightly hard in the container, but melts on contact with the skin. It is effortless to apply, just a light swipe over the eye or neck area and it is done. It sinks into the skin and doesn't leave a shine.

How Well Does it Work?
This balm works at reducing my puffy under eye circles and it feels great on my skin. It nourishes with fatty acids and rejuvenates with potent antioxidants.
How Long Will it Last? What is the Shelf Life?
You only need a tiny bit of this balm to nourish the eye area. If you were to apply it to your neck, you would need a bit more. I think that this jar, though small, would last at least a few months.
The shelf life is most likely 1 year.
I love using this as an eye balm. I apply it in the mornings to combat under eye circles and to prevent wrinkles. I haven't used it on my neck because I want it to last me a long time and I feel like my eye area needs more of the special attention this balm gives.
The addition of pearl powder and gold flecks takes this balm to a level of luxury that you can't get just anywhere. Lina has truly sourced global treasures and packed them into one little balm. I want to use it on my whole face!
Lina has poured her love and soul into her brand of skin care products and I can feel that love radiating from the products. So much care has gone into them, from the packaging to the colors, scents and ingredients. Lina has created a luxurious and indulgent experience that I look forward to every day.
I give this treatment balm a 5/5 rating. I can't find a single thing I don't like about this product. It offers ingredients for minimizing eye puffiness, such as coffee and green tea, and it will help reduce wrinkle formation. This balm is a pleasure to use.
- Contains coffee to help with under-eye puffiness
- Highly moisturizing
- Will help minimize eye area wrinkles
- Can be used on the neck
- Packaging will keep ingredients intact
- Easy to apply
- The addition of luxurious ingredients makes this balm pricey.
