Time Balm-A Post in Which I Am Very Brave

Time Balm-A Post in Which I Am Very Brave

Let me start this off by saying that I am insecure about the dark circles under my eyes. To the point that I'm defensive about them. So I'll start off by getting this out of the way: yes, I've had my allergies tested, yes I eat for my food allergies, yes I have trouble sleeping, yes, my thyroid is under control, thank you.

Phew! Glad to get that out of the way. I rarely go out in public without coverup on under my eyes. In the spirit of being #bodyproud, I've decided to post pictures of myself without makeup for you all to see. The point is to share with you a product that I use all the time and love. If you have a need for major concealing, you might want to try Time Balm. And no, this is not a sponsored post. (I don't do sponsored posts, if you haven't noticed. Not that I wouldn't if the right product offered!)

You can get it on Amazon and at Sephora and maybe other places. Those are the two places where I've gotten it. I get the mid-medium. I'm fairly tan and quite yellow. My tips are these: use a brush to apply it and don't skimp around your tear ducts or they'll look super dark.

Pardon my bathroom selfies, but it's all I've got. I was getting ready in the morning one day and thought this could be useful for someone. But not so useful I needed to wake my husband up to take pictures of my eyeballs. On the left, the not quite-blended eye with product. On the right, no makeup on that eye.

Want a close up? Here ya go!

Here I am with both eyes covered up and blended in. And yes, after these pictures I started using my eye cream more religiously before bed. The puffiness is not indicative of the product but rather of my own puffiness!

Let me know if you try it out and like it-or hate it!  And don't forget that brush! This is a thick product, and you can do some serious pulling if you try to apply with your finger.


  1. oohh I'll have to try this! Sounds like a great product. Also, you're GORGEOUS both ways. Love you! XOXO

    1. It's one of the best I've ever found! And it's been a long search!
