FOM Cosmetics // Revitalising Eye Care Balm


If you've not heard about or tried FOM Cosmetics yet then you really should. FOM stands for 'Freshness of the Morning' and the brand create products that are not only premium quality but are  created with 100% natural plant based, nontoxic ingredients that work wonders for all ages and skin types. I've been looking for a good eye cream for a while and I've definitely gone more green beauty over the last year than ever before, it was this search that lead to me finding the Revitalising Eye Care Balm pictured above. 

When deciding if a product is good it's my skin that becomes the deciding factor because it breaks out so easily, even with some organic, green and 'natural' products which upon closer inspection clearly have some taboo or iffy products on the ingredients list. I was attracted to FOM because they have great reviews, their products contains lovely ingredients and of course their list of things that won't be included is simply perfect for my very snobbish skin *wags finger at naughty skin* The main deciding factor however would be if the cream worked and if it would cause any breaks outs... 

When the product arrived I was surprised to find the bottle was made of glass and it was topped with a pump applicator which is great because no product goes to waste as you decide how much comes out. The packaging ticks many boxes straight away because I'm not a huge fan of plastic and I do feel glass and other 'heavy' packaging automatically looks and feels more luxurious than their plastic counterparts. The bottle is a 25ml size which is slightly larger than what most brands offer but I do feel it's the perfect size because I would have worried about the product spoiling or becoming less effective if it was larger - like most do over a long period of time. 

The eye balm itself isn't very balmy so I did feel that was slightly misleading however, the cream is lovely and rich but not greasy, when you pump out your cream it holds it's shape and a little goes a really long way. Once applied the cream absorbs really well and my skin felt velvety soft where I'd applied the cream. I definitely feel it relaxed some of my finger lines and I would definitely repurchase this once it's finished.  

There's lots of active ingredients in the ingredient line up, some include: 
  • Carrot Extract // Rich in Beta-carotene which is a powerful antioxidant, Vitamin K and Vitamin C are also prominent in this ingredient. 
  • Eyebright // Antibacterial, anti-microbial, nourishes and protects the skin while healing and infusing the skin with lots of Vitamin A and Zinc. 
  • Gotu Kola // Restores elasticity and tones the skin. 
  • Green Tea // Rich in antioxidants that fight free radicals. 
  • Lupine Proteins // Restructures and regenerates the skin, prevents collagen and elastic breakdown, aids hydration and improves skins' elasticity while promoting cellular regeneration.
  • Neroli Water // Protects dry skin, improves circulation and helps to rejuvenate. Orange blossom flower water smells gorgeous and reminds me of a delicate flowery mandarin.  
  • Olive Squalane // 100% pure olive squalane softens the skin, reduces signs of ageing and boosts cell regeneration. 
  • Rosehip // Rich in antioxidants and fatty acids. 
  • Rose Water // soothes and cools sensitive and irritated skin, natural antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, balances combination skin types and beautifies the skin by giving you a glow. 
  • Vitamins // A,B,C, E and Omega 3 and 6 are all included in this product. 
Overall I'm so happy with this cream, I doubt I'll even look elsewhere and that's huge for me because I'm always looking for the next best thing. I can also gladly say there were no breakouts, lumps, bumps or cysts at all when using this product and you have no idea how pleased that made me. 

FOM products do not contains animal derivatives (vegan friendly), parabens, mineral oils, sulphates, synthetic fragrances, EDTA, silicons or alcohol. Everything is created, packaged and shipped from the UK to ensure you're receiving a fresh, luxurious product, you can find their product line up over on the FOM Cosmetics website. I would absolutely recommend this as an eye cream but also as a facial cream, I have combination skin and I really think the formula of this works at hydrating my drier areas without making it greasy and easing the oil production in my oilier t-zone.
