Why Everyone’s Obsessed with Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream

If you aren’t familiar with the ultra-luxe 10-step K beauty skin care routine, it includes a variety of cleansers, toners, and creams layered in a precise order to clarify the skin, plump and moisturize and protect the skin overnight and during the day. Byrdie loves how our eye cream reduces puffing and swelling, using a combination of stimulating green tea and coffee.
This powerful de-puffer was also crowned the #1 miracle eye cream of the ladies and fans over at Marie Claire. In addition to their morning lattes, they’re addicted to the power of caffeine in this eye cream. Chloe Metzger mentions how, “It helps constrict and tighten the skin as soon as you massage it in,” resulting in bright, youthful and awake looking eyes without the hefty price of botox.

How We Make the Best Caffeine Eye Cream
The Our Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream is totally vegan, and flaunts amazing stats detailing real results from 100% PURE fans: 100% saw increased hydration and moisture, 97% saw reduction of puffiness with regular use, 93% saw lessened appearance of lfine lines and wrinkles… the proof is in the pudding!
We believe our organic and natural eye cream ingredients are to thank for these amazing results. The base for this hydrating eye cream is organic aloe leaf juice. Combined with rose, rosemary, and vanilla, the soothing ingredients in this cream pack a powerful punch without being too thick, heavy, or greasy for the skin around the eyes. This eye cream smells like a warm vanilla latte, and is infused with rejuvenating and restorative vitamins, oils, and extracts.
Never heard of green coffee? They’re coffee beans in their raw and natural state, before being roasted. This is the superstar ingredient in this natural eye cream because of its power to reduce swelling in the eye area, and to counteract the effects of UV damage. Green coffee extract contains vitamin E and fatty acids, which result in plumped skin and an increase in collagen production for a smoother eye area that is firmer and well hydrated.
While green coffee is the unripened beans, coffee cherries are the red ripe fruits of the coffee plant. The coffee cherry skins are a great source of antioxidants which again, fight signs of aging, reduce sun damage, and result in tightened, brighter, awakened eyes.
Organic Aloe Juice
One of the main complaints we hear about the eye area is how dry, wrinkly and irritated the under eyes can get, especially during allergy season. The organic aloe juice in this eye cream addresses all of those issues in a gentle, soothing way. We chose aloe as the base of our eye cream because of the almost 20 vitamins and minerals in this dynamo ingredient! This liquid has a gel-like consistency that is cooling on the skin and has the power to fight off free radicals, which means more anti-aging power. Aloe also contains folic acid, which can contribute to cellular renewal. Additional vitamins and minerals in aloe juice help treat dryness and inflammation for smoother, de-puffed under eyes.
Rose Hydrosol + Rosehip Oil
Rose hydrosol and rosehip oil make one soothing duo for any area of the skin, but especially the vulnerable, exposed eye are. Known for soothing redness and irritation, the rosewater in our Caffeine Eye Cream has mild anti-aging power. Rose essence can contribute to firmer skin, improved circulation, and tightening of the capillaries for a brighter, refreshed eye area. Rosehip oil is moisturizing but non-comedogenic, regenerative, and toning for discoloration and scars. The addition of rose in this product makes this truly natural formula the best caffeine eye cream for banishing dark circles.
Green Tea Extract
For a triple-threat to sun damage, aging, and puffy eyes, we’ve included antioxidant-packed green tea extract in our formula for this eye cream. Caffeine-rich green tea helps shrink vessels around the eye area for reduced puff and increased tightness. Say good riddance to dark circles and discoloration from all those late nights out on the town with the girls. Green tea also is a major ingredient to brighten dark circles, making you look more awake and youthful.
Vitamins E + C
We all know that vitamin E is one of the building blocks of the skin. It helps to keep the skin moisturized, smooth and plump, which is no exception for the eye area. The antioxidants in vitamin E help to fight wrinkles for smoother skin around the peepers. The vitamin C we’ve included in the eye cream reduces sun damage, plumps, increases skin firmness, and brightens the skin.
We’ve got the caffeine, so we couldn’t forget the vanilla! Vanilla is anti-inflammatory and de-puffs, but is also a humectant for locking in moisture to keep the eye area well hydrated all day and night.
Little Known CBEC Tips
This eye cream isn’t just for dark circles and de-puffing. Multi-task this miracle worker as an eye makeup remover.

Finally, you can rub excess of this natural eye cream onto the backs of your hands for moisturized, tightened skin and an anti-aging kick in a pinch.
