The natural eye cream from UpCircle is a gentle cream to brighten, refresh and renew your eyes, reducing the appearance of dark circles and fine lines. The eye cream has a really subtle coffee scent.
UpCircle gives ingredients that would otherwise be discarded a second chance. The eye cream is made with coffee oil extracted from repurposed grounds, maple bark extract, a by-product of the wood industry and cucumber extract.
Mable bark extract
This cream is made with anti-inflammatory The maple bark extract is a by-product of the wood industry, sourced from maple forests in Southern Quebec in Canada. Bark is the protective “skin” of the tree. UpCircle uses it in the same way: to protect and nourish our skin. The maple extract is rich in antioxidants and acts as an anti-inflammatory, meaning that it reduces redness and helps skin appear brighter. It also helps strengthen the skin barrier and boost collagen production.
Another ingredient in this eye cream is cucumber extract which is considered a skin superfood. Cucumber slices are often placed over the eyes during facials as the ingredient is extremely gentle, and therefore great to use on the delicate sensitive skin around the eyes! It is also an astringent, meaning it tightens and firms your skin to revitalize it and help reduce the appearance of the signs of aging. Cucumber extract contains proteins, lipids, Vitamin C, and a variety of minerals, meaning that it moisturises deeply and leaves the skin feeling smooth. It’s an ideal ingredient for helping to soothe and relieve puffy skin.
Antioxidant rich coffee extract
Coffee is jam-packed full of skin friends, including antioxidants like good ol’ Vitamin E. High amounts of Vitamin E and other essential nutrients found in coffee help to soothe and moisturise your skin. Caffeine is one of the most popular ingredients you can use to reduce eye puffiness and dark circles. Its anti-inflammatory properties decrease swelling by constricting blood vessels under the eye.
How to use
Press the pump once to release a small amount of cream onto your fingertips. Dab onto the delicate eye area and allow the cream to soak into the skin.
Use both morning and night. The eye cream should be the first part of the moisturising section of your skincare routine. Suitable for all skin types and use under make-up.
This eye cream is housed in a glass bottle with a PP plastic pump. Now you may be thinking: plastic? Though we are committed to selling plastic-free products, for some products we make a small exception. For your next order keep the pump from your first bottle and select the refill option with aluminum cap.
There is a plastic liner in the cap which makes the bottle leak proof and air tight. It also helps to preserve the product longer and protect the lid from the essential oils in the toner. Essential oils can cause aluminium to oxidise (meaning it develops a black coating) which can spoil the product. At present there is no suitable alternative. We recommend reusing the bottles as much as you can and if you do throw them away, recycle the plastic liner separately. The packaging is fully recyclable.
