Let's STAY IN TOUCH

A friend once called me a
crafty ass bitch and I loved it. I design, make, fix, style, cut, build, hammer, sew, solder, mix, weave, paint, photograph, edit, measure, pour, cook, plan, organize, repurpose & more.

My ultimate superpower is freakish amounts of patience. It's allowed me to endlessly tinker with design, DIY, photography and the gold old internet (which I'm so grateful has connected us!) as well as create my own planning and productivity systems. 

My mission is to activate your #SisooSpirit so you can create the life you most desire. Stick with me, I've got some awesome things to share!

khiels-eye-de-puffer-creamI have a puffy eye problem.  I get super puffy under my eyes when I’m not taking great care of myself. Lack of sleep, excess salt, alcohol, carb-overloading….and I wake up punished, with swollen pillows under my eyes. It has driven my CRAZY my entire life, until I discovered CAFFEINATED EYE CREAM. This stuff is a miracle. I never fully believed a product would cure my puffs, I thought I would have to live with this the rest of my life. Then I read a beauty interview with Manrepeller‘s Leandra Medine, in it she mentioned that Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Eye De-Puffer worked for her under-eye swelling. So I took a chance, because I figured if I can’t trust Leandra, I can’t trust anyone. Sure enough, this stuff worked instantly. I could feel the cooling of the product under my eyes, and no joke, it rid me of puffiness within 15 minutes of application. Problem solved. Puffies, begone!

My only issue was that I was blowing through this stuff–it’s sold in such a tiny tube, I ended up buying 2 or 3 each month to support Project De-Puff. It’s not overly buy viagra safely online expensive, but it’s also not cheap. So after a little research and learning that the active ingredient in this product is caffeine, I developed a (super easy) recipe that works just as well, and is very inexpensive to make!

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

WHAT YOU NEED

Caffeine natural coffee bean extract (powder form)

Your favorite moisturizer (I use my standard daily oil-free Alba moisturizer)

A few drops of jojoba oil, grape seed oil or similar

1 oz cosmetic jar

A toothpick for mixing

THE INSTRUCTIONS

Fill the jar with your favorite moisturizer, about 3/4th of the way full. Add 1/2 teaspoon of caffeine extract powder to the jar and stir with a toothpick until thoroughly mixed and you can’t see any powder remaining. Add a few drops of jojoba oil (or similar oil) to help thin the mixture, stir again until consistency is smooth. Apply on under-eye area as needed, and watch your puffies vanish!

I always prefer to make my own beauty products when I can, that way I know I’m not using any excessive ingredients that I don’t like or need. Let me in know in the comments if this recipe helps your puffy eyes!

    Wow, exactly! I use a coffee-based cream from 100% Pure – http://www.100percentpure.com/products/organic-coffee-bean-caffeine-eye-cream-1oz – Perhaps I’ll give your recipe a go! Where do you get the coffee bean extract powder?
