Chrissy-Jo's All Natural Violet & Blue Chamomile Eye Cream
I randomly stumbled upon this on Ebay 5 or 6 months ago. What really caught my attention were the ingredients, (my eyes easily get irritated by eye creams and to top it off my skin is dry) they are simple, gentle, and all natural with no added fragrance (does have a very light sweet herbal scent, almost like honey that fades after application. I really like it). The title says it's a cream, but it's actually more like a balm. It's spreads very easily with no need to tug on the delicate eye area and a tiny amount goes a very long way. I love this so much I just got my 2nd jar. I apply it at night before bed (I use sunscreen under my eyes during the day. I use Mychelle which is gentle around eyes) and I find that my eyes are a lot less puffy in the morning. My skin texture has improved, it's a lot smoother. All without causing milia. I also appreciate that it's made by hand by a small company. Highly recommended!
Here's the listing description:
