I like to call this wonderful eye serum ‘De-puff & Repair Anti-Aging Eye Serum’ as it does exactly that – it is a deeply moisturizing, light-feel eye serum which offers potent anti-inflammatory, anti-wrinkle, antioxidant, firming and repairing benefits.
Just a single drop of serum is needed to unleash its benefits – hydrate, firm and tone, smooth wrinkles and lines, de-puff and calm inflammation, and protect the delicate skin with occlusive, emollient, antioxidant, humectant, astringent and regenerating properties. This oil goes a long way!

How to use the serum
Oil-based eye serums are an absolute delight for their powerful anti-age benefits. Those who have used plant-based oils can certainly attest to their effectiveness in warding off eye wrinkles and toning the eye area. However, a note from the wise here- less is more with oil-based eye products – careful not to use too much – one-drop is all that is required. Too much oil-based serum in the eye-area may congest the delicate skin around the eye area, and actually counter the anti-inflammatory properties of eye serum, resulting in a puffy-looking eye area. If this occurs, discontinue use for a few days until inflammation has well subsided. You may try the eye serum again if desired.
Apply one drop for both eyes – smooth onto fingers and lightly, gently pat eye area with fingers tips to distribute a small amount of serum only under the eye, and over top the eye over the brow bone. Body heat will allow the oil to further distribute over the eye area overnight. It is recommended only to use this eye serum at night, while the skin optimally repairs itself. Daytime use under cosmetics will likely cause smudging or movement of eye makeup. Careful not to get serum near the eye socket, as the serum may enter the eye. Flush eyes with water if contact occurs.
