Happy Sunday Ladies! I hope everyone is having a great day, man how the weekend flies! I have a little post for you on something I am extremely excited about! So if you have puffy, tired, dehydrated skin around your eyes, you will want to read this! (By the way I got this from The Shopping Channel my Canadian ladies!)
This is 100% Pure's Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye cream. First, I am going to say that I'm extremely impressed with the formulation of this product. A lot of the time, the words "organic", "natural" and things of that nature don't really mean what we may assume. In this case, 100% Pure, is 100% telling the truth! I really want to show you guys a list of the actual ingredients in this eye cream: (from their website)
"Ingredients:Organic Green Tea1, Organic Calendula Hydrosol1, Organic Rosehip Oil1, Organic Green Coffee2 Vitamin E (a-tocopherol), Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate), Extracts of Coffee Cherry, Organic Rosemary3, Organic Oregano3, Organic Thyme3, Organic Grapefruit Seed3 and Organic Goldenseal4, Organic Vanilla Absolute3, Candelilla Wax"
To my surprise, I can actually pronounce and understand what all of the ingredients in this product are! I have found that with many of my products that are "all natural" the list of ingredients is so beyond me that I find it hard to believe. A lot of the times as well, even though they are "all natural" they include large amounts of preservatives which kind of defeat the idea of a "natural" product to me. That being said, I am very happy with the ingredient list in this product!
I'm even more happy with the amazing, and I mean amazing, results that this has given me! My eye area isn't a major concern but I do regularly wake up with puffy, swollen eyes and usually have a great deal of dehydration around my eye area. This has tackled both of my concerns!
|After - 5 minutes|
This may just be me, but I see a really big difference in my eyes! I feel like I look much more awake, hydrated and way less puffy! I took these photos only 5 minutes apart with the first with no eye cream and the second with a small amount (smaller than pea-sized) applied to both eyes above, and below. These photos are also in the same lighting and same position. I hope it isn't just myself that sees a difference, but even if it is, I LOVE IT! haha I swear I can actually feel this working right after I apply it. It feels like a tightening, soothing sensation that isn't at all irritating or uncomfortable. I really like that this provides the cooling and tightening of a gel with the hydration of a cream, all in a 100% natural base!
I'm not even going to do a full list of Pro's and Con's, I think you know my take! Its 100% natural, effective and by the way, smells amazing! It smells like fresh brewed coffee mixed with vanilla, love it! The only downfalls to this product is the price (a little expensive but nothing crazy at $19 USD for 1 oz, mine is 0.25 oz), the availability of the product, I don't have any stores near me that carries it so I also have to pay shipping, and maybe for some the strong scent of coffee. (I love it but if you don't like a strong scent or don't like the smell of coffee, you won't like this product for that reason) having said that you don't really smell it around your eyes!
Overall, I will repurchase this, I WILL! It is the most effective eye treatment I have ever used and the bonus of it being 100% natural is extremely exciting to me! I want to try all of 100% Pure's products now, if this one is that effective they must all be! They also carry a line of "fruit pigmented" cosmetics that you have to check out! (They are on my Christmas Wish List)
NOTE: they have a Canadian version of the site as well as an American version, make sure you pick your country at the bottom right! AND for my Canadian friends, be sure to check out 100% Pure on The Shopping Channel for great deals and less expensive shipping!
