Let's take some time for another Herbfarmacy product. Yes, I've already reviewed a few of their products and I was most impressed with everything - cleanser, serum and balm. Today is the eye cream's turn. Just Eyes* is a fragrance-free rejuvenating cream that enlivens and nurtures the skin around the eyes and is especially suitable for sensitive eyes.
The cream comes in a paper box packaging which I tossed away so I took it to their website to help me with the ingredient list. Just Eyes contains some gorgeous ingredients. Herbs like Cornflower which works to sooth irritated, tired eyes and helps to reduce any inflammation. Siberian Ginseng provides effective firming to reduce the signs of ageing, nourishing plant oils like Apricot Kernel, Macadamia Nut, Evening Primrose and Sunflower Oil moisturize the skin with extracts of Arnica to ease any darkening around the eyes. Essences of Green Tea provide anti-oxidants properties to fight the aging process. It contains 83% organic ingredients - it says on my bottle, but on their website it's stated that it contains 76%. I contacted them about it and they informed me they haven't updated the website yet, so 83% is correct. Yay. I love the ingredients I mentioned, but one I really don't feel comfortable with is the use of Phenoxyethanol. I heard talks that they'll not be using it anymore and I did also ask them about this so when I'll know more, you'll be the first to know! I do very much appreciate that it doesn't contain any essential oils and has just a very faint herbal scent, nothing strong or overpowering.
This eye cream is suitable for vegans and I find it quite lovely. It comes in a very handy plastic bottle with a pump. You only need a small amount of it, so a little goes a long way. It has a light consistency which quickly sinks into the skin. It's gentle and soothing and doesn't cause any irritations. It's hydrating but almost every night I top it off with a facial oil or a balm that I'm using on my face. At this moment I'm swooning over snow white Terre Verdi Argan Shea Multitasking Cream*, that I posted on my Instagram (click). It is moisturizing on its own but I can't help myself not to show my skin around the eye that little bit of extra love. It sure as hell needs all the help I can muster. Thinking about it, I can say it ticks lots of boxes but not all. Like I wrote, Just Eyes contains Arnica Extract, which is supposed to help and ease any darkening around the eyes. I'm suffering from dark under eye circles and based on some reviews, I was hoping it will help. Unfortunately it doesn't. I wouldn't recommend it for that, BUT this is just my experience and that doesn't mean it can't work for you. The lovely Ana from Ana Goes Green sure noticed an instant brightening effect under the eye, so there is still hope. :)
The cream is keeping my skin moisturized and looking nice, it works great under makeup, but I can't say I'd buy it again, just because of the Phenoxyethanol. Other than that it is a lovely eye cream. You can get it here (and use code "jana" at the checkout for 10% off).
Have you tried Herbfarmacy Just Eyes? What do you think about it? Which eye cream are you loving at the moment?
Lots of love,
