Review: Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics Vitamin E Active Moisture Eye Balm

I felt it necessary to give a little shout out to this little gem after trying a sample that lasted me 9 weeks. Yes. 9. WEEKS. Twice daily use.
I brought a sample pack of the Elizabeth Dehn products (A few more reviews coming your way..), but I admit I was most excited to try this eye balm due to the love it has received in the green blogging area, and the ingredient list. If I am honest, the ingredients read to me like my ultimate dream team of botanicals. The list includes superstar shea butter, one of my favourite ingredients of all time, known for its intense hydrating properties and high vitamin A and E content. It also contains fennel to reduce puffiness, and eyebright, pomegranate and ginseng to lift and plump the skin. It is also worth mentioning that the balm is waterless, which I love, as it means it is highly concentrated and you aren't paying for any useless fillers.
I lavishly applied this balm of a night like it was an eye mask, but of a morning I applied less so that my under eye area wasn't left shiny. Any traces I had left on my pinky fingers after applying, I used on my lips to give them a hydration boost. I didn't find this eye product to be irritating at all, unlike others I have used, and I didn't develop milia, something I am extremely prone to. I noticed a subtle brightening of my eye area, and also something unexpected. My lower lashes are now longer after using this consistently, which I can't complain about! 
One of the biggest tips I have for this balm is to warm your fingers under warm water before applying, if you have notoriously cold hands like I am known for. The warmth of your skin allows the balm to turn into a oil for easy application, to prevent tugging and increase absorption of the active ingredients.
I would highly recommend buying a sample pack of the Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics products, if not just to try this balm out. Hey, if you only used it once a day, it could last you 18 weeks (4 1/2 months)!
