Frankincense & Tea Seed Magic Eye Night Serum (+ sweet almond & chamomile)

web_3101notquiteastight17.95 / 12ml.
Recyclable glass bottle with cooling metal rollerball.

Bring back lustre! Rich in plant nutrients, vitamin E & antioxidant tea seed oil, this natural blend rejuvenates delicate, dehydrated & tired eyes, for gentle, empowered radiance.

The truth is, and here I may divert from beauty industry ‘marketing norms’: eyes are so expressive that even if the skin around them is less than par (maybe you stayed up too late – maybe you’re tired and stressed and have been eating crap – tut tut!), they are still indecently beautiful. Adventures, late nights & excesses are to be celebrated, but, still, it’s nice to do what we can to improve matters of their effects, and the ingredients here have been specially chosen for warding off the evil spirits of dark circles, puffiness, lines and dull-looking skin.

P1060676 crop2.jpgUses & Directions:
At bedtime, and with only light pressure, smooth the roller-ball bottle in a semi-circle below each eye, following the shape of the socket and massaging in in small circles.

Key ingredients/benefits:
Frankincense Essential Oil: The healing qualities of frankincense have long been known (and it is widely rumoured that topical application around the eye socket can stimulate and improve vision!). Steam distilled from the resin of the Boswelia genus of trees, it has a rather regal scent which is also calming and uplifting (the perfect scent to settle you into a good night’s sleep), and it’s even thought to lift and tighten skin naturally (and so help keep the delicate skin of the eye area as smooth as possible).

Clipboard05Camellia Oil (the tea plant): We all know that green tea is full of antixodants and the same is true of the magical oil cold pressed from its seeds. Traditionally favoured by Japanese geisha (who know a thing or two about beauty), this light oil is healing, softening, nourishing and packed full of micro-nutrients to rejuvenate delicate skin cells. …See here!

Sweet Almond Oil: Said to help decrease ‘panda eyes’ by lightening the skin and reducing dullness, sweet almond oil is richly moisturising (while being light enough to be easily absorbed along with the tea seed oil) and full of nutrients, replenishing fatty acids and vitamin E. It’s also anti-inflammatory, which means it can help reduce puffiness and irritation.

Lavender & Chamomile Essential Oils:  Anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and gentle, these two top off a beautiful concentration of care-taking. Both are renowned for their soothing, calming natural aromas; application of this blend is a perfect finish to a day and a sign to yourself that it’s time to r e l a x . . .

Vitamin E: an added (natural) extra dose for even more antixodant power; why not?
