My DIY anti-aging under eye cream with hyaluronic acid will leave your skin feeling soft and nourished while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

My DIY anti-aging under eye cream with hyaluronic acid hydrates skin, improves elasticity and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Like one of my previous skin care recipes for my palmarosa lime body balm, my DIY anti-aging under eye cream is also formulated with oat butter. Oat Butter is a soothing blend of rich, silky oat oil and hydrogenated vegetable oil that yields a dense viscosity and smooth texture. It’s well suited for dry, flaky skin as well as those with skin sensitivities.

I left my DIY anti-aging under eye cream recipe unscented so as not to add any additional ingredients that may be a source of allergies for those with sensitive skin. The final product will leave your skin feeling so soft and smooth that’s it’s sure to become a favorite!

Ingredients:

3 oz. oat butter
.1 oz. macerated carrot carrier oil
.1 oz. cucumber seed carrier oil
.2 oz. rosehip seed oil
.3 oz. emulsifying wax
.1 oz. isopropyl myristate
.05 oz. xanthan gum
.05 oz. dimethicone
1/4 teaspoon pure hyaluronic acid serum powder

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh out all of the ingredients except for the hyaluronic acid powder. For that you will need a quarter teaspoon measuring spoon. I recommend this Baker’s Math Scale if you plan to make a lot of bath, body or soap recipes.

Begin by weighing out the emulsifying wax into a glass pyrex measuring cup. Heat until melted either in the microwave at 50% power or in a double boiler.

Weigh out and add the oat butter to the melted wax.

Reheat until the oat butter has melted.

Next, weigh out the xanthan gum and stir into the melted butter and wax mixture until it has dissolved.

Now weigh out the remaining carrier oils – macerated carrot, cucumber seed and rosehip seed oil – and stir into the previously heated ingredients. Mix well.

Allow the mixture to cool slightly then weigh the dimethicone and the isopropyl myristate and stir in. Follow with a measured quarter teaspoon of the pure hyaluronic acid serum powder. Mix well. Then place the DIY anti-aging under eye cream in the refrigerator to cool.

My DIY anti-aging under eye cream with hyaluronic acid hydrates skin, improves elasticity and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Once the liquid anti-aging under eye cream just starts to turn cloudy and opaque, remove it from the refrigerator.

My DIY anti-aging under eye cream with hyaluronic acid hydrates skin, improves elasticity and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Then, using a whisk attachment on your stick blender, whisk the cream on low until it thickens.

My DIY anti-aging under eye cream with hyaluronic acid hydrates skin, improves elasticity and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Now use a small spatula to “spoon” your DIY anti-aging under eye cream into two 2 oz. straight sided amber glass jars with black phenolic lined caps. I got mine from SKS Bottle & Packaging here.

Finally, simply screw on your lids and label as desired for personal use or gifting!

To use apply to clean skin under your eyes daily at night or during the day under makeup!

If you plan to sell your DIY anti-aging under eye cream, you’ll need to follow FDA guidelines for labeling your product. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

So what causes under eye bags?

As you age you’re more likely to experience bags under your eyes. Because the tissue structures and muscles supporting your eyelids weakens, this skin may start to sag. As a result fat that is normally contained around your eye may drop into the area below your eyes. In addition, this area may also retain fluid causing your eyes to look puffy or swollen. Typical causes of this include fluid retention due to hormone levels, salty foods or changes in the weather, lack of sleep, allergies or dermatitis. Heredity can also play a factor.

How to I resolve my puffy eyes?

It’s not always easy to know exactly what is causing your under eye puffiness, so starting by taking care of yourself is key. Curb your salt intake and manage those seasonal allergies with medication. You can also try using a neti pot, sleeping on your back, drink alcohol in moderation – and keep hydrated when you do drink! – use sunscreen, remove eye makeup before bed to prevent possible irritation, and don’t smoke. Cooling down your eye area also helps to relieve eye puffiness, and so this is where my DIY anti-puff eye roller comes in!

Made with aloe vera juice and caffeine extract, this DIY anti-puff eye roller also contains peppermint essential oil to for an instant cooling sensation. While this product won’t perform miracles in which your puffy eyes vanish forever, depending on the cause, it’s possible it can noticeably reduce your under eye bags when preventable causes are removed from the equation.

Ingredients:

6 mL aloe vera juice
3 mL water soluble caffeine extract
1 drop peppermint essential oil

Instructions:

Using two graduated plastic transfer pipettes – one for each ingredient – or reusable glass graduated transfer pipettes, measure out the aloe vera juice and water soluble caffeine extract. Combine in a 10 mL roller bottle. Add one drop of the peppermint essential oil using a dropper or a fresh pipette. (You don’t want to use any more than one drop of peppermint essential oil as it’s pretty potent and you’re working with a delicate area of the skin!) Now pop on the roller bottle top and screw on the lid. Shake well to combine. That’s it!

To use simply apply the anti-puff eye roller under each of your eyes as needed.

Keep your DIY anti-puff eye roller in the refrigerator between uses. The cold not only helps to cool and calm puffy faster, but it also keeps the aloe vera juice from going bad. You can store the aloe vera juice, once opened, in the refrigerator for up to two months.

Also a huge thank you to my dear friend, Bambi, who not only help me to create this project – along with several others this past week! – but also so eloquently modeled my DIY anti-puff eye roller for me! (In exchange she got to keep some of what we made AND we got to share a bottle of wine together!) In addition to helping me to keep my creative drive up and going to hear all of the best bands in Roanoke with me, Bambi also makes and sells her own beaded jewelry in her Etsy shop, Happy Tree Frog Studios.

This healing neem butter recipe is wonderful for helping to heal minor wounds and abrasions as well as to help minimize scarring.

Bambi is also a recent breast cancer survivor. Having beaten the cancer through surgery and radiation treatments, she is now on a daily course of Tamoxifen for the next five years. And I’m thrilled to still have her around for the rest of forever. She’s also the super awesome friend that I created my natural burn relief spray and healing neem butter recipes for. (And lucky her, because she said they both worked fabulously for their intended uses!) So, here’s my gentle SHOUT reminder to please, please, please get your yearly mammograms by age 40 or even sooner! – age 35 – if you have a history of breast cancer in your family. They caught Bambi’s cancer very early on when she went in for her first mammogram at 40 with zero suspicions by her GYN that anything was wrong when she called and scheduled the mammogram for her during her yearly visit.

DIY Coffee Under Eye Cream for Puffy Eyes, Dark Circles & Fine Lines

Disclosure: Blog posts may contain affiliate links for which I receive a small commission when you make a purchase. Full disclosure can be found here.



DIY Beauty Recipe for a Natural DIY Coffee Bean Under Eye Cream Recipe that helps to combat under eye puffiness, dark circles and fine lines and wrinkles!

Suffering from puffy eyes, dark circles or even fine lines? This DIY coffee under eye cream may be able to help!

In my last post I mentioned that I had recently purchased and tried 100% Pure Cosmetics’ Organic Coffee Bean Eye Cream made with Arabica Coffee Seed Oil and Green Arabica Coffee Seed Oil and as a result concocted my own coffee bean infused oil for creating my own version of a caffeinated DIY coffee under eye cream that would help with those morning dark under eye circles, puffiness and even fine lines.

I strayed from the ingredients in 100% Pure Cosmetics product a bit but I was rather pleased with the results of my own DIY coffee under eye cream which creates a smooth, rich cream that smells like delectable coffee. I used natural ingredients known for their anti-inflammatory properties like shea butter, olive oil and lavender & chamomile essential oils, as well as jojoba and naturally anti-aging rosehip seed oil which have skin rejuvenating properties with evidence that they reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The end product is smooth and creamy and literally melts right into skin. A little goes a long way.

You can either make this recipe for one large container or pour the cream into smaller sized lip balm pots for gifting and sharing. If you like my DIY coffee under eye cream, you can also use the coffee infused oil you make for this recipe to create my other recipe for Handmade Coffee Lip Butter.

Don’t want to make your own? You can buy artisan crafted coffee under eye cream as well as coffee under eye serums here.

This Natural DIY Coffee Under Eye Cream Recipe is made using homemade coffee infused oil which can help with puffiness, fine lines and dark circles!

DIY Coffee Under Eye Cream Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

1/2 oz. coffee infused oil (see below)
.25 oz. jojoba oil
.25 oz. rosehip seed oil
.75 oz. shea butter
.75 oz. cocoa butter
1/2 ml lavender essential oil
1/2 ml chamomile essential oil (1/2 ml if 3% dilution in jojoba or 4-5 drops if pure eo)
5 drops vitamin E oil

To Make Coffee Infused Oil:

Coarsely ground 3 Tablespoons of whole (unflavored) coffee beans in a coffee grinder. Combined the grounds with 4 oz. by weight of olive oil over low heat for about 15 minutes, then strain the oil using either cheesecloth or a coffee filter in a pinch. As I didn’t have cheesecloth handy, I improvised by taping a coffee filter to the top of a cup then poured the coffee and oil into the filter. Once the majority of the oil dripped through I carefully removed the filter and then squeezed the rest of the oil out into the cup.

Instructions:

Using a digital scale weigh out the shea and cocoa butter into a glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave until melted, then weigh out the coffee infused oil, rosehip seed oil and the jojoba oil and stir into the melted butters.

Next, using a different 3ml Graduated Plastic Transfer Pipette for each essential oil, measure out and add the chamomile and lavender essential oils and mix into the other ingredients. Finally, add several drops of vitamin E if desired and pour into your container(s) of choice.

How to Make Homemade DIY Coffee Under Eye Cream for Dark Circles, Puffiness and Fine Lines

This DIY coffee under eye cream recipe yields approximately seven 10ml or 1/3 oz. lip balm pots or will fit into a 2 oz. container or jar.

Notes from the crafting kitchen: Keep in mind that my DIY coffee under eye cream take some time to thicken. I’ve had products like this take a day or two to thicken at room temps and up to several hours to thicken fully in the fridge.

Also, as I did go back and experiment with various coffee options, note that using pre-ground coffee beans vs. coffee beans you grind fresh as well as the intensity of the roast – light, medium or dark – will determine the final color of your oil. Pre-ground and darker roasts make a much darker oil than grinding the beans yourself and choosing a light roast. Also, straining with a coffee filter over all other methods produces a much lighter oil with fewer coffee grains sneaking through.

Also keep in mind that ingredients from different suppliers will yield slightly varying results. I do not recommend using oils from the grocery store, but rather oils meant specifically for cosmetics and soapmaking for the best results and a longer shelf life.

Beauty DIY with Free Printable Labels - Handmade Natural Nourishing Anti-Wrinkle Under Eye Cream Recipe - Also Great as a Salve for Dry Skin, Eczema and Psoriasis

Back in April, I introduced my natural anti-wrinkle under eye cream to Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen. Today, I want to share that under eye cream recipe with you so you can make some for yourself or as gifts for others. I’m also including free printable labels for this natural homemade nourishing under eye cream in both black and white and color. They’re perfect for placing on the outside of a poly zipper bag that contains a lip balm sized container of this anti-wrinkle cream or for placing on the outside of larger jars.

This natural under eye cream recipe was formulated to help minimize the natural effects of aging and improve the overall condition of sensitive under eye skin. Based on my own under eye skin issues of occasional dry patches, puffiness, thinning skin and wrinkles that are starting to become visible in my late thirties, I formulated this natural under eye anti-aging cream with a combination of rich, skin conditioning oils and botanicals known for their anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, moisturizing and rejuvenating properties.

This natural under eye cream is also comprised 100% pure, highly prized rosewood essential oil which has been documented to aid in a multitude of skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis, acne, dry and oily skin, elasticity, and wrinkles. It also contains high percentages of olive squalane – commonly referred to as a “Face Lift in a Bottle.”

Homemade Natural Nourishing Under Eye Cream Recipe - Anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, anti-inflammatory, moisturizing and rejuvenating - Also great for dry patches, eczema and psoriasis

Nourishing Natural Under Eye Cream Recipe

Ingredients:

1 Tablespoon beeswax pastilles
1 Tablespoon grated carnauba wax
.3 oz. kokum butter
.3 oz. cocoa butter
1 oz. shea butter
1/2 teaspoon hemp seed oil
1 teaspoon evening primrose oil
1 teaspoon argan oil
1 teaspoon camelina oil
1 teaspoon jojoba oil
1 teaspoon Calendula Infused Olive Oil (Learn how to make it.)
1.5 ml olive squalane oil
2 ml GMO free Vitamin E oil
2 ml pure rosewood essential oil, optional
1/2 teaspoon fractionated coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon grapeseed oil

 Supplies:

digital kitchen scale
8 empty 10 ml (1/3 oz.) lip balm pots with lids
glass measuring cup
metal utensil for stirring
graduate plastic transfer pipettes
8 3″ x 4″ clear poly zipper bags
8.5″ x 11″ full page sticker label sheet

Directions:

Begin by measuring out the waxes into a glass pyrex measuring cup and heat at reduced power in a microwave (or alternately you can use a double boiler) until melted about halfway through. Next, weigh out the butters using a digital kitchen scale and add to the partially melted waxes. Continue heating in the microwave until all ingredients are melted. Carefully remove the container – it will be hot so use a pot holder! – then measure out the all of the oils except for the olive squalane oil, vitamin E and rosewood essential oil with teaspoon and half teaspoon measurements and stir into the wax and butter mixture. Finally, using a different graduated plastic transfer pipette for the remaining ingredients, measure out the olive squalane oil, vitamin E oil and rosewood essential oil and stir into the mixture.

Now simply pour approximately .33 oz. of the liquid under eye cream into each of the eight lip balm pots. Allow to cool, then cap tightly. Each container of this nourishing eye cream will cost approximately $4 to make (including the cost of the container) depending on where you source the ingredients. The initial start up cost for this recipe, will be much higher as many of the ingredients need to be purchased in quantities larger than necessary for eight containers.

To use this natural under eye cream, simply apply under and around the eye area at night. It can be reapplied in the morning and worn under makeup as well. This product has the consistency of a salve so little goes a long way! It also makes a nice base for applying eye makeup and giving your eyeshadow that extra needed staying power! It’s also great for spot treatment of patches of dry skin and eczema. As with any product, if irritation develops, discontinue use immediately.

Packed Handmade Under Eye Cream

If you are gifting or sharing this product, you can place each container inside of a poly zipper bag and label with my printable labels. {Download labels here.} The labels come in both black and white (page 1) and color (page 2) and have “Handmade Natural Nourishing Under Eye Cream” written on them. And, as another new season of The Walking Dead is set to start soon, I’ve also included a page of labels with “Handmade Zombie Prevention Under Eye Cream” (page 3) printed on them. To print your labels, simply choose the page of labels you want to use and print that page only onto a blank, full page sticker sheet. A printable version of the original recipe (page 4) is also included. (This recipe was adapted as some ingredients were no longer readily available.)

Once you print your labels of choice, simply cut them out, remove the backing and apply to the outside of the packaging. (Labels are for personal use only.)
