• 100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream

    Posted on May 21, 2012 by in Beauty, Reviews, Skin


    Two years ago I wasn’t that big on eye creams but now I love them.  I like to keep my beauty routine as simple as possible.  Now I believe that if you are going to have an extra step to your skin care regimen that using an eye cream is the perfect extra step to add.  The skin around our eyes is much more delicate than the skin on the rest of our face.  Our eyes are so expressive and the skin around them could use some extra loving care.

    I’ve been testing the 100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream for a few months now.  I can honestly say that I truly enjoy using it and love the benefits that I’ve noticed over time.

    Ingredients: Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice1, Organic Rosa Centifolia Flower Water (Rose Hydrosol)2, Organic Rosa Canina (Rosehip Oil) Seed Extract3, Organic Coffea Arabica (Green Coffee) Seed Extract4, Vitamin E (Tocopherol), Vitamin C (Sodium Ascorbate), Extracts of: Coffea Arabica (Coffee Cherry) Seed, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf, Origanum Vulgare (Oregano) Leaf, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Flower/Leaf, Hydrastis Canadensis (Goldenseal), Vanilla Planifolia (Vanilla Absolute) Fruit, Euphorbia Cerifera Cera (Candelilla Wax)

    The first thing that I noticed using the 100% Pure Coffee Bean Eye Cream was that my eye area felt firmer.  Morning applications feel energizing for tired eyes as well as rejuvenating.

    I sometimes apply the eye cream twice in the morning for that extra boost.  This eye cream feels light and non-greasy with super moisturizing power.  I absolutely love the smell of sweet coffee and vanilla which is exactly what this eye cream smells like.  The vitamin C in this cream is brightening to the skin, and 87% of those who used it noticed a reduction in dark circles.  I’ve always had puffy eyes since childhood.  Getting a good sleep at night, drinking lots of water, and eating well has always made a big difference when it comes to eye puffiness for me.  I do like that I feel tightening sensations when I apply the 100% Pure Coffee Bean Eye Cream, and I have also noticed an overall smoother appearance around my eyes.

    The first three ingredients of the 100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream are especially good for mature and sensitive skin.  Aloe vera, rose hydrosol, and rosehips oil are three gentle yet extremely affective ingredients for the delicate area around the eyes.

    Rosehips oil is mainly used to treat dehydrated skin, scars, and premature aging while soothing wrinkles.  By adding green coffee extracts and coffee cherry extracts, the skin receives an extra jolt of caffeine which reduces the blood supply to the area and removes water content.  Coffee extract also detoxes the skin especially when used with other herbal ingredients.

    This eye cream is exceptionally creamy.  A little bit goes a long way.  The 1 oz bottle that I have has lasted me for five months so far applying it twice a day.  I love that I still have a lot more left to enjoy too!  I’m not surprised that I love another product from 100% Pure.  I recently cleaned out my small makeup stash and hope to try a few more of 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Cosmetics soon.

    You can find 100% Pure products here.

    I wonder if you can create a pure coffee oil infusion for skin care using organic coffee beans and a carrier oil?  Has anyone tried this?

    Hi Dawn,

    I have never tried coffee bean oil, but curiosity got the best of me and I looked it up at an online shop my aromatherapist highly recommended. I have not ordered yet, but I might give them a try. They press their own oils from nearly every plant imagineable. As far as my research has come, coffee oil or coffee butter is made from pressed, roasted coffee beans, so I am not sure if you can get the same result from infusing beans in a carrier oil. The description says that it is a perfect natural sunscreen and is high in linoleic acids, which soothe irritated skin, help fading age spots and as mentioned protects against sun damage.
    HTH.

    Unfortunately the website is only in german language, but here is the link:

    I love the 100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Eye Cream! I use it twice a day. I’ve found that it has reduced my under-eye puffiness and darkness.
