Review: 100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream



Chic & Green's Favorite New Eye Cream:





Thoughts:  Since I decided to begin eliminating all products made with synthetic fragrances, I needed to find a new eye cream. I opted to buy one from 100% PureI like several products from 100% Pure. This one may just be my favorite. It is all natural, vegan and gluten free, as well as free of artificial fragrances. When I apply this, my undereye area feels so soothed. The number one ingredient in this is green tea, and I love that about this treatment.

I also love the fact that calendula hydrosol is high up on the ingredients list. I used to use calendula to make a soothing cucumber & calendula facial mist for those with sensitive skin and it really is so soothing and beneficial to those with skin that is easily irritated.

The coffee in this really helps to brighten the undereye area and boost circulation. I have the tendency to get dark circles and while this hasn't removed them, the area is brighter.

I also want to mention the aroma. I have eliminated artificial fragrances from my beauty routine, but there is pure and natural vanilla absolute in this. Combined with the coffee, it's like a very comforting and soothing vanilla mocha. It absorbs right in so it won't bother the senses, but it is lovely while applying.



Ingredients: Organic Green Tea, Organic Calendula Hydrosol, Organic Rosehip Oil, Organic Green Coffee, Vitamin E (a-tocopherol), Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate), Extracts of Coffee Cherry, Organic Rosemary, Organic Oregano, Organic Thyme, Organic Grapefruit Seed and Organic Goldenseal, Organic Vanilla Absolute, Candelilla Wax

Price: This product is $19 for one ounce. This, per ounce, is more affordable than many name brand drugstore creams. Keep in mind that most eye creams on the market range from 0.25 to 0.5 ounces. For example, my past favorites (which I no longer use because of the synthetic fragrance) from Burt's Bees retail for $18 and $25 each for a half ounce jar.


Other eye cream prices for the sake of comparison:



L'Oreal Youth Code (0.5 ounces) $21.99
Olay Definity Eye Treatment (0.5 ounces), $25.99
Philosophy The Miracle Worker Eye Cream (0.45 ounces), $60
Lancome Absolue Eye (0.5 ounces), $105


Really? $105??? No way!




My Grade: a well deserved A+




Note: This product is not one that was sent to me for review. I purchased it on my own.

Great post! I love natural ingredients and this is a major plus that it has natural fragrances as well. mmmm vanilla! Must buy! Have you tried the Yes to Carrots line? I'm using the Yes to Cucumbers eye gel and it has no scent and so refreshing just like cucumbers are on your eyes.

ERay, I think you'd like it.

Jennifer, glad you like it as well!

Charisse, I used the various "Yes to___" products at times in the past, but all contain synthetic fragrance so I no longer do.

Hi, I was wondering if this is still your product of choice or have you discovered anything new since March? I love trying new things.....

Anonymous,

This is still my go to product. Dr. Oz. also just featured it on Thursday as one of the "top 4 anti-aging breakthroughs".

I have been sent many other brands of eye cream to review. While there are some nice ones, this is my personal favorite and I continue to use this regularly.
