Most Helpful Positive Review Balm CHICKA Balm Balm
This eye balm I absolutely love! I have fair skin so this one works well for me. I love using it with and without makeup. I feel this one blends the best with makeup versus it's sister product. I have pink undertones to my skin so this one works well for me. It feels amazing on my eyes when I first wake up. I have also noticed awesome results with it helping my dark under eye situation. I look more awake and can re-apply during the day and blend into my makeup with no issues. I like the pink highlight shimmer it has but understand that is not for everyone. The cooling sensation is addicting so...DO NOT OVER USE! LESS is MORE with this product. If you do over use, you will feel a burning sensation. I have both the rose glow and the original one in the blue tube. If I had to choose between this one and the blue one, I would choose this one 100%. This one is well worth the investment! Excellent product!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for people of color/rash
I was so excited to try this product. I have dark circles around my deep set eyes and this got some good reviews. My skin is kind of sensitive... I don't know what to exactly, but I can use some wild cheap stuff and not have a reaction, and then break out into hives from detergent. Anyways, I read that this had a shimmer to it, which I thought would be kind of fun, but the sparkle is white. I am black. It looked like I was using too light of a weird under eye concealer. I was able to kind of dab it in to make it less noticeable. There is a product quiz you can take (which I didn't realize until after buying the product) that asks if you're light or dark skinned and it recommended the other under eye that is orange... which I am assuming is because it has gold glitter, not white. So that was my initial complaint, but then my skin around my eyes started getting itchy and breaking into a rash. I have small red bumps all around my eyes and a couple of large red bumps that kind of look like acne around my eyes as well. I don't get acne, especially not around my eyes, so I know it was this product. I am sad though because I liked the cooling sensation, and the product did work! My dark circles are less dark. So unfortunate about the bumps though.

If I use this product as intended, around my eyes, it's a no go. The cooling sensation on that sensitive skin feels more like burning and irritation. BUT! This makes the best highlighter I've ever used. It pairs so well with my cream blush, I rub it back and forth a couple times and then lightly dab to blend with my fingertip. It leaves the best natural glow, no glittery shimmer. Stays on all day, even through sweaty workouts with nyx setting spray.
María from Alameda
Everything Tula is holy Grail status. This makes my eyes look like I've slept 12 hours even if I've slept less than five.
I have one in my purse so I can touch up throughout the day. It's cooling, brightening and Gives the most beautiful lit-from-within glow! Something i will ALWAYS re-purchase.
Gorgeous for me!
Flowergirl from Laurel Park, NC
This is the best decision I made! Wishing to soften and brighten my eye area (mature skin) I ordered this with OSea eye cream. This is beautiful. Applies easily and does what it says. Pink tones suit my skin.
cooling and de-puffing
t Osberg from Salem Ohio
love this! I have noticed a big improvement in my dark under eye circle and bags. no irritation at all and I've been using it daily for about 6 weeks. will definitely buy again!
Brightens under eye
Barkart from Colorado
I like the way it feels and works.
Cool To Eyes
Lady Ru from Sacramento
I like it so far because it does feel cool applying under the eyes but it's only been a week of use and I hope that it will help with this fading the darkness from under my eyes as well.
Not worth it.
Biz from Atlanta Ga
I tried this and the original at the same time. Neither does anything but put a colored sheen on your skin. This one is a pink pearl color. Gives no hydration and only made my eyes water.

Works But Irritated My Eyes
msharp from KY
This product definitely delivered on the brightening aspect; it made my dark under eyes look so much brighter and less tired! It looks pretty under makeup. But, like many others, it irritated my eyes & skin. Redness, itchiness, burning, and bumps. I've tried it multiple times to just make sure because I really wanted to use it, but I can't😩
Solid pink streak on your skin that doesn't blend.
Swags from PA
I love anything in a stick form but this was a miss for me. It's solid pink and is dry and does not blend out. If you try to blend it, it pretty much just wipes off. I have light skin so it shouldn't be showing up this way on me.
Brightens your eyes
Lulabell from Los Angeles, CA
Love this cooling pen and eye brightener. I take it with me everywhere and glide it on a couple times a day in this hot heat. I'm sure it will be once when Winter hit but I'm really liking it regardless. Tula Brand is great and I will continue to buy so long as their products stay the same.
Jess from US
I love to use this in the morning under my makeup. Gives my eyes a wakening effect.
A must have!
Gabiiiadragna from Long Island, NY
I absolutely love this product! Whenever I use it, I look awake. I have super sensitive skin, and I thankfully don't breakout when using this. I don't necessarily feel the "cooling" part of it. But it definitely brightens up my under eyes.
Caused allergic reaction!
Emily from Cleveland, OH
A few hours after applying this product I noticed dry, flaky, red rings around my eyes. I also felt an itching and burning sensation. My skin is somewhat sensitive, and it reacted terribly to this product. I have huge red scars around my eyes that haven't gone away in three days. I have dark under eyes to begin with, and this product intensified them even more. Beware of this product if you have sensitive skin!
Elle from Chicago
My eyes were soooo sensitive to this product. Was super excited for this. Unfortunately had to return.
Not for me
TXmemaw from Texas
It stings my skin. I just can't tolerate it.
Loved this product for a wake up and a pick me up!
Mom to teens from Omaha, Ne
I used this product every morning under my makeup, but I also carry it with me to touch up my eyes in the afternoon when I feel tired.
Fantastic for dark circles and puffiness
Brooke from CA
I was super excited to pick this up. I am a 40 year old with dry skin. I have dark circles under my eyes that are hereditary and allergy related, although I also assume they are partially due to stress and lack of sleep. I've tried many eye creams, and while some help with the crow's feet/lines, and a couple make my eye area immediately less puffy, none have helped my dark circles at all. I love the packaging in stick form. It's easy to apply, and I don't have to use my fingers. It immediately makes the full area cool and tingly. It dries quickly with no stickiness. My eye makeup goes on smoothly after application, and it makes the area tighter, more refreshed, and brightened overall. My dark circles look significantly better after application as well. I would absolutely buy this again and again; however, if you have sensitive skin, this might be too irritating.
shawtyg from Virginia, USA
The cooling affect is nice and helps to depuff but this stuff stings my eyes so bad I can't use it. Also not crazy about the glitter it leaves under your eyes. Because of that, I would only use this under makeup. On its own it makes your undereyes look sparkly and weird.
Only use if you don't have an allergic reaction!!
L.N. from California
This product really delivers what it's description states: de-puffing, brightening, and hydrating.
My eyes usually get real puffy and red when I cry and this did the job almost IMMEDIATELY. I loved the instant coolness (almost like chewing spearmint gum under your eyes), and it definitely helped with the dullness of my undereyes due to lack of sleep.
...HOWEVER! As much as I wanted to love this, my eyes became itchy and bumpy!! I have noticed the menthol ingredient is what causes this reaction! So beware if you know that this ingredient does not work well with your skin and if not, this product will be great for you otherwise!
Will buy again
Katie from Florida
I bought this product because it was on sale and thought I would try it. The packaging suckered me in. I was very pleasantly surprised with this product. It feels great going on and really does its job. I use this twice a day sometimes! I will spend the money for this product again.
taylor from appleton
helped my dark circles so much and made my eyes so much less irritated when outside with the cooling part. my makeup also when on very smooth there were no lines from this product after applying concealer! 10/10 recommended! (especially if you cry a good amount)
Good, but not a need
Mia from Fairfax, VA
I had the other one in the blue tube and hated that one. It smelled like a glue stick and made me look like a tin man, but under my eyes lol. I got this in a subscription box and I like this a lot better! It brightens and makes me look more awake with just one swipe under my eyes. It feels so good if you put it in the fridge before using it too! I especially love it on no make up days because it looks like I have a bit of concealor on but I really don't! But I don't think it's life changing. I don't think I would pay for it again, but I loved getting it in my box! If you have a gift card or something then it's worth a shot
Victorie from Albuquerque, NM
I used this once, the next morning I woke up with horrible burning eyes and it looks like I have blisters underneath my eyes. My eyes have stung all day. I had only saw positive reviews about this product and was so excited to try it, instead I'm embarrassed to leave my house.
It's pretty good
lola******** from Nebraska
This stuff is pretty darn good- if you have the money to blow on it. Ofc it's not a necessity but if you have the money then go for it, cause you might really like it. My only issue is be careful to not put TOO much cause then you'll look like you slapped a bunch of highlighter under ur eyeballs, but other than that it's pretty good.
