What do we think of Frankincense eye cream from Handmade Naturals
Our fabulous wellness and lifestyle guru Stephanie Bates tries out this cruelty free and vegan Handmade Naturals eye cream – does it work?
At 37 I thought it was about time I started to use an eye cream so I was excited to try a vegan Frankincense eye cream from Handmade Naturals.
The product contains Organic Argan, Cocoa Butter, Borage, Rose Hip, Aloe Vera and it smells gorgeous.
Argan oil is a fabulously nourishing oil and perfect to use as a facial moisturiser. Due to its high content of vitamins (especially vitamin E and A), antioxidants, beta carotenes, fatty acids and even natural squalene, it can dramatically improve skin tone and elasticity, and reduce aging signs such as wrinkles and skin sagging.
Borage seed oil is extremely rich in fatty acids (especially GLA – min 27%), minerals and vitamins. It is suitable for all skin types, particularly dry, mature and scarred skin. It is also helpful for irritated skin.
Virgin organic cocoa butter – produced without the use of harsh chemicals to retain all its natural healing qualities and huge amounts of vitamin E.
Unrefined Rosehip Seed Oil (Rosa Moschata)
This precious oil is extremely hydrating to the skin as it is rich in vitamins A, B, D, E all oils in high concentration & Fatty Acids. Rosehip seed oil contains Vitamin A, which helps to delay the effects of skin aging, assists with cell regeneration, and promotes collagen and elastin levels to increase. Wonderful for use around the eyes, and for reducing scarred tissue.
This 100% Vegan product which is made in the UK is packed with vitamins, minerals and protein for healthy looking skin to help with the effects of ageing around the very delicate area of the eye. The family run business is against testing on animals and try all the products on themselves first!
The product is very thick so you don’t need much around the eye which I discovered on my first try.
I certainly noticed a difference when using the product, my skin around the eye was indeed more moisturised and I will continue to use and support this fantastic brand hoping that it will help me fight the signs of ageing.
At £7.25 for a 15ml pump dispenser I think this is a very reasonable price and worth the money, the packing is also lovely!
#TAMAGRECOMMENDS – I will give this product 4 stars
