How to apply your Eye-cream and ingredients to look for!

If you’ve been thinking about buying an eye-cream you might be wondering, what ingredients should I look for, what do they do, and what is the optimal way of applying it? Today we’ll be answering all of these questions and tell you why adding an eye-cream to your beauty ritual is a must!

How to use your eye-cream

Step 1: Wash your hands & face

You always have to be careful when treating your skin, that’s why it’s important to have clean hands when applying your skincare products. Wash your face and gently pat dry before applying your eye-cream.

Step 2: Start with a pea-sized dot 

A little goes a long way! Place a pea-sized dot on your middle finger, since it's the finger we use less pressure with. 

Step 3: Start applying

Gently tap it onto the skin beneath your eyes, crow’s feet, and brow bone. This will stimulate blood flow and help with product absorption. It is worth mentioning that not all eye-creams are safe to use on your eyelids, however our Awakening Eye-Cream has you covered. 

Step 4: Wait a couple minutes

Give it time to fully absorb before continuing with your beauty ritual (moisturizer, concealer, sunblock, sleeping mask, etc…)



Things to keep in mind

Place eye-cream in the fridge

If you want your eye-cream to have a cooling effect and help with puffiness, put it in your fridge for about 10-15 minutes prior to use. 


Consistency is key 

The cream works best when applied evenly and consistently; choose a time that works best for you and stick to it daily. We recommend using your eye-cream during your morning and nightly rituals.

Now that you know how to apply it properly, get to know your eye-cream a little bit better! We’ve gathered a list of ingredients commonly found in these products and the benefits they bring: 


Encapsulated caffeine: Reduces crow’s feet and wrinkles. Will liven up your eyes by reducing the appearance of dark circles. 

Vitamin C: Slows early skin aging and lightens dark circles.  

Niacinamide: protect your eyes from future damage from sun, pollution, and evens out skin tone.

Shea butter: Softens and moisturizes the skin

Squalane: Plumps and softens skin to reduce fine lines

Plant stem cells: promotes new collagen production 

Hyaluronic acid: helps soothe dry skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles

Eye creams are more than just moisturizers; they aid you in preventing early signs of aging, dark circles, puffiness, and evening out your skin tone. Adding them to your beauty ritual will help bring back that healthy and youthful glow that your eyes will thank you for in the long run!
