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 homemade coffee lip balm.

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 (3% dilution in jojoba oil)
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.”

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.

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.)

Natural Handmade Anti-Wrinkle Under Eye Cream with Pure Rosewood Essential Oil

I am so excited to get started on formulating my new all natural anti-wrinkle under eye cream. As I’m getting older – I turn the big 3-8 this June – not only are the wrinkles around my eyes becoming more pronounced, but I have been getting dry patches under my eyes as well. Because of this it’s really sunk in that if I want to keep looking young, then I need to start working at it. Maturing skin really does need extra love to stay looking its best. So based on some various natural ingredients I’ve been experimenting with, I am finally ready to craft my own natural under eye anti-wrinkle cream. After all, our eyes are one the first places you start to notice the effects of aging. I’m also quite keen to minimize the scar under my right eye from a dog bite and hopefully minimize some of the under eye puffiness that afflicts me during allergy season and on those nights I just don’t sleep well. In addition I really want a super concentrated cream, rather than a cream with unnecessary fillers like water, and one that was free of chemicals and preservatives.

My handmade under eye cream will include a mixture of moisture rich oils, butters and botanicals prized for their skin conditioning, healing, and anti-inflammatory properties. Just a few of the ingredients that will be incorporated into my new recipe include calendula flower extract, evening primrose oil, olive squalane, grape seed oil, argan oil, hemp seed oil, calmelina oil, kokum butter, cocoa butter, shea butter, vitamin E and rosewood essential oil.

Once I get a recipe together, I have some very willing co-workers of all age ranges and skin types – including extremely sensitive skin – on stand by to help me test it out over a period of several weeks.

Curious about some of the ingredients I’ll be working with? Here’s some information on a some of the less common ingredients I’ll be using in my natural anti-aging skin care recipe.

Rosewood Essential Oil has a lovely light fragrance thought to ease stress and headaches – not to mention it doesn’t irritate my allergies – and is great for treating dry, dull skin, stretch marks and scars.

Calendula Flower Extract is praised for helping to heal chapped and irritated skin. It aids in skin regeneration, eases eczema and also has anti-inflammatory properties which really comes in handy for those puffy eyes in the morning.

Evening Primrose Oil is praised for it’s moisturizing and skin softening effects. It also helps to relieve eczema, redness and inflammation and aid in healing wounds.

Kokum Butter is prized for its essential fatty acids. When applied to skin it provides emollient and regenerative properties making it a wonderful choice for treating damaged skin as well as inflammation.

Argan Oil is rich in vitamin E and is highly valued for its healing, conditioning, and anti-aging properties.

Camelina Oil is naturally high in Omega-3 and contains over 50% polyunsaturated fats. It nourishes skin and helps to heal skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis as well as improve the elasticity of skin.

Olive Squalane Oil helps to boost your skin’s ability to naturally regenerate, nourish, hydrate, oxygenate and protect itself. It is often used to help with skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, and cracked skin. Additionally it can help to prevent the formation of brown age spots as well as add some protection for skin against UV radiation of the sun.

Grape Seed Oil is believed to help preserve moisture in aging skin and help to repair damaged skin, wrinkles around the eyes, and stretch marks.

Hemp Seed Oil is one of my newest favorite oils as it works so well to fight against dry and damaged skin as well as the effects of aging. It is known to help heal skin lesions, balance dry skin and combat skin inflammation. Much like jojoba oil, hemp oil is non-greasy, emollient and moisturizing.
