I think I love eye cream more than ice cream! Especially when it is non-toxic and filled with amazing things for your eyes and your body. Because let’s face it, the majority of the year that is all people see is our faces. And I don’t don’t about you but I would like to age as gracefully as possible.
So I have put four coveted and praised green beauty eye products into the ring to duke it out.
LAUREL EYE SERUM
The Laurel Eye Serum was the first eye serum I added to my green beauty collectection and it remains a staple. Best used in the pm and say bye bye bye to crows feet! This one knocks it out of the park in terms of anti-aging and moisturizing!
This serum features a whole plant blend of Bilberry, Fennel, Licorice,Nettle, Chamomile, and Rosehips to brighten and reduce the appearance of dark circles, strengthen capillaries, and to reduce puffiness, inflammation, and fluid retention. The blend is high in vitamins and minerals as well as carotenes. A delicate, intoxicating blend of organic and therapeutic grade essential oils: Rose, Roman Chamomile, and Sandalwood, are included to soothe and awaken tired eyes and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
ONE LOVE ORGANICS VITAMIN E BALM
