I—like most moms with young children—don’t get a whole lot of consistent sleep. I have come to rely on coffee to wake me up in the morning, so I was excited to try out the 100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream. I thought maybe, just maybe, it could do the same thing for the look of my sleepy eyes that drinking coffee does for my mind.
And it does! Shortly after putting it on, my eyes look much less puffy and the dark circles aren’t so dark anymore. Yay!
100% Pure actually did an independent 4-week clinical study on the Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream. Here are the results:
- 83% saw immediate reduction of puffiness
- 97% saw reduction of puffiness with continued use
- 73% saw an immediate reduction of dark circles
- 87% saw reduction of dark circles with continued use
- 87% say they look more ‘awake, rested and refreshed'
- 80% say that it instantly helped reduce the look of lines and wrinkles around the eye area
- 97% say skin around their eyes softer and smoother
- 93% say it reduced the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with continued use
- 100% say it improved skin hydration and moisturization
- 93% say it improved skin firmness/elasticity
- 93% say that the eye cream absorbs well
Of course, my review wouldn’t be complete without sharing the full ingredient list:
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
You’ll notice the ingredient list is 100% natural, 100% vegan and gluten free!
