Radiance Eye Creme by Burt's Bees
Burt's Bees - Radiance Eye Creme - 0.5 oz. (14 g)
Burt's Bees Radiance Eye Cream is specially formulated with Royal Jelly to help enhance skin's natural radiance and help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for skin that appears younger looking. The eye area will look and feel more moisturized and smoother for naturally radiant skin.
How Radiance Eye Creme Works
Royal Jelly, one of nature's most nourishing substances, and bee pollen naturally replenish and renew your skin's essential nutrients, restoring a smooth, youthful appearance. This highly-concentrated formula also contains chamomile, cucumber and rosehip extracts, which are known to promote skin renewal and reduce puffiness and swelling. Natural mica diffuses light to minimize the look of fine lines.
Royal Jelly: Very nourishing, royal jelly is made of nectar, pollen, flower parts, vitamins, minerals, and other natural ingredients. It is a very precious, mysterious substance that honeybees produce and feed to only select young bees, which in turn become mature and fertile queen bees. The queen bee lives 40 times longer than her worker bees.
Royal Jelly for Beautiful Skin
Royal jelly is made by worker bees and fed to the queen in her first days of life to ensure her growth and fertility. It's considered to be one of the world's most nutrient-rich substances, packed with 134 nutrients, including essential amino acids, minerals and Vitamins B1, B2, B5, B6, C, E along with Biotin, Niacin and Folic Acid. No wonder it helps the queen grow to 40 times the size of worker bees and live 50 times longer.
This natural ingredient is widely used around the world, where it is known for its ability to enhance skin texture and smoothness. Burt's Bees uses royal jelly in many of their natural skin care products because it is known to help enhance skin's texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Royal jelly has also been found to have antioxidant properties and be beneficial to over-all health and anti-aging programs.
To ensure that the bees and their hive are never harmed by Burt's Bees' harvesting practices, they source royal jelly from only the queen larvae. Their food source is never compromised during the harvesting process because these larvae are continually stocked with the substance at a rate much faster than they could ever consume it. That means both you and the queen can reap the benefits of royal jelly.
Burt's Bees Frequently Asked Questions
Are your products hypoallergenic?
There is no defined methodology to test for allergic reactions in beauty or personal care products, nor does the FDA regulate use of the term "hypoallergenic." Consequently, Burt's Bees does not position their products as hypoallergenic. A list of ingredients for each product is available on individual product information pages on this site.
Are your products safe for pregnant women to use?
Burt's Bees recommends that any expectant mother check with her physician before changing her skin care routine with their products, or any other line of products.
How long will my Burt's Bees products stay fresh and what is the best way to store them?
Burt's Bees products are made with natural ingredients. They purposely present our products in smaller portions so you finish them while their ingredients are still fresh and providing their maximum effectiveness. As such, we recommend you store creams and oils in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight and heat. Creams may be stored in their cartons for extra protection.
Where are Burt's Bees products made?
Over 95% of Burt's Bees products are made right in their own manufacturing plant in Durham, NC. The rest are made by other respectable American manufacturers.
Do you test on animals and do your products contain animal-derived ingredients?
Burt's Bees does NOT conduct product or ingredient tests of any kind on animals. A few of their products contain ingredients derived from animals such as beeswax, royal jelly, milk and carmine.
I am allergic to bees. Can I still use your products?
Burt's Bees does not use actual bee venom in their products – only bee by products such as honey, beeswax, royal jelly and honey powder. However, if you are allergic to bee by-products, then Burt's Bees does not suggest using their products. They recommend that you contact your health care provider when changing your skin care regimen to find out which products are best for you.

About Burt's Bees
At Burt’s Bees, they scour the good earth to find the most natural, effective ingredients to put in our products. To Burt’s Bees, the word “natural” means only one thing. It means, “harvested from nature.” And they adhere to that definition like the strictest of school teachers. There are ingredients that you will never find in any Burt’s Bees product. Things like petroleum which can be toxic. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, which is a harsh, aggressive ingredient used in certain beauty products. And when was the last time you saw a farmer growing Propylene Glycol? Rather than loading their products up with harsh chemicals or unnecessary fillers, they offer you only the good stuff.

This gentle eye creme really brightens your eyes by making your skin glow. It lasts a long time so its worth the price. It is not sticky like some other Burts Bees eye creams. Sometimes I use a little of this as a facial moisturizer too.
I tried this when switching from Aubrey after they changed the ingredients in their eye cream. I was a little hesitant because fragrance is listed. I've used it for about 3 months and I like it very much. It's non greasy and absorbs quickly so it can be used in the daytime. And it really does work. And the nice thing is, it's not terribly expensive (compared to some others). I plan on buying it again.
