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.

I was a little skeptical about this product since I've read some reviews that said it caused reaction. I've seen it raved about all over the internet so I decided to try it. I have a few fine lines from sun damage and I get pretty puffy under eyes. This felt amazing on my eyes and helped reduce any lines and puffiness I had. It even made my under eyes brighter. Totally worth the price!
Not worth the hype
CP from Virginia
I wasn't blown away by this product. It does feel refreshing and cooling when applied but I didn't see the brightening that it promises. I have olive-toned skin. I don't think it actually does anything. I was hoping to get a product that helps with dark circles and I've seen this product being raved about. I will not be repurchasing.
This is the Answer to my eye bag prayers!!

I actually got one in a popular seasonal subscription box :) I have heard raves and mehs about the brand Tula. This is my first product from Tula and I LOVE it.
I have combo, medium toned skin. I do wear some makeup, but keep it light. I'm big on skin care.
I did my normal routine, moisturized well and then applied this balm over my makeup, under my eyes.
The cooling sensation and the formula of the balm immediately de-puffed the eye bags. The balm also gave me a slight holographic brightening effect to offset the darker part.
I also have rosacea, so I do have some broken blood vessels there as well, and the brightening part covered it well and seemed to SHRINK those inflamed vessels!
I'm definitely coveting this product because of the price but worth.every.cent!
Save up gals, this is one of the BEST under eye products I've ever used!
Mere from Little Rock, AR
So I have had the blue version of this for almost a year and have loved it, but lately I haven't been wearing any makeup except sunscreen and maybe eyeliner. I felt the blue one was too shiny without makeup and this one is so much better. The pink isn't pink on the skin, so you don't have to worry about that. I love using it to wake up my eyes with the cooling feeling it produces. Love this product!
Alaina from Denver
I have friends who swear by this product as their morning pick-me-up and I was so excited to use it. Unfortunately, I did not like this product at all. It claims to tingle and give a cooling sensation yet I feel absolutely nothing when applying it. It doesn't feel-puff my circles at all nor lightened them. All it does is add pink shimmer under my eyes which I have to wipe off because it looks like I rubbed Claire's body glitter on my face. I really wanted to like this Tula balm but it was a total waste of money.
The right amount of glow!
Katie from Jacksonville, Fl
Very hydrating with no sticky residue.
Brightening and cooling
Cori from Maine
This eye balm does exactly what it says it will. It does provide a cooling effect, which I quite like and I have sensitive eyes and I don't think it bothers them, if anything it feels like it's soothing them, especially in the mornings when my eyes are puffy. It also brightens the under-eye! I like a minimal makeup look, and this provides a beautiful dewy, iridescent glow under your eyes. I've also tried the blue version of this eye balm, which is also good, but I do believe I like the pink one better.
Will buy again!!

Just as they said cooling and brightness !!
Rachel from Philadelphia, PA
This product feels refreshing feeling when applied, but I don't know if it really does anything. I was hoping to get a product that helps with puffiness and dark circles and I had heard this would be good for that, but I don't see any difference when I use it.
Stop using this product
Elizabeth from Sacramento
I really wanted to love this product because the concept was pretty interesting. I used it about 3 times until the 4th time my under eye swelled up and started to burn. I came to the review sections to see if I was the only one but it seems like more people are experiencing the same thing. I hope TULA figures what the cause of this because it is concerning.
I wish it didn't give me hives!
Kara from Baltimore, MD
I loved it at first, I have olive skin so it made my undereye brighter. Sadly, every time I used it I had swelling and hives. Wouldn't recommend if you have sensitive skin.
Alex C from Dallas
Definitely didn't see any improvement in the undereye area. I do like the cooling sensation, but makes my eyes itchy when applied on my dark circles. works great as a highlighter on the cheeks over my makeup!
I like this product
Pisces950 from Baltimore, MD
I put it on in the morning after my cleaning and after lunch ( my eyes get dry) and at night to keep them smooth.
Def not for me
Sha from NC
I used this product for a week and became severely dehydrated and irritated in my under eye area. I have sensitive skin so perhaps it's great for someone else but def not for me.
Not for sensitive skin
Katie from PA
I received this in a subscription box and was so excited as I had my eye on it for a while. I'm so disappointed. The "cooling" effect is more like a stinging effect and made my eyes water even though I only used it on the orbital bone (so not like, right up to my eye.) it also feels and looks super dry. The shimmer then accentuates the dry look. I have pretty smooth under eyes to begin with so if you already have texture I image this would just look even worse. 2 stars bc it obviously works for some, but definitely not me.
Monarch from Sacramento
Product caused hives where it was applied. Not recommended.
i love this product BUT...
L from usa
i have never written a review before but i had to about this product. this is awesome if you love dewy minimal makeup. the finish is a bit shimmery but very flattering. it did cause me lot of burning, irritation and hives. i love this product and i'm sad my sensitive skin can't handle it.
Ava from Pa
This made me break out in hive all around my eyes!!!
KV from Arizona
I received this eye balm in my Fab Fit Fun Winter box. I have used many different eye balms and moisturizers and I can say this one is HANDS DOWN the BEST product I have ever used. I love the gentle cooling sensation. it definitely reduces and honestly gets rid of some fine lines. It also prevents bags. I don't have severe bags under my eyes but this reduced mine. I put it one before I put on my makeup and my makeup goes on perfectly over this product. Actually, I feel it goes on even better. I also like to put it on before bed.
Really like this eye balm
Heather P. from USA
Really like this eye balm it truly cools as you put it on tired eyes!! Love that it's in an easy to use stick as well
Would not recommend
Meghan from USA
I bought this product to help light in the dark circles underneath my eyes. I definitely would not recommend it it does not work. All it does is create a shimmer and looks very bad. I have tried putting make up on top of it as well and that also does not look good. And I have also tried it putting it on top of make up and still the luck is awful. Do not waste your money
Dries Skin and better products exist for the price
Cecelia from USA
It feels great and I love the way it brightens up your eyes but the product is drying my skin out. Not worth the price for just a shimmery effect. I wish this product was moisturizing. I could possibly justify the price if there were actual skin benefits but there are definitely better products out there.
This is the only product
Natalie H. from USA
This is the only product I would recommend.
Laine S. from USA
I use this product in the morning and at night. It leaves my under eyes feeling brighter and cooled. My face looks brighter and I feel more awake. This is a must have!
Linda S. from USA
Feels refreshing on the eye. I use it on upper and lower areas. Wish it added a little more brightening color especially to the eyelids.
