I 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, carb-overloading… and I wake up punished, with swollen pillows under my eyes.
My puffy undereye issue 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.
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.
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 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
- 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, preservatives, or additives that aren't necessary.
I hope this DIY eye cream recipe helps your puffy eyes like it’s helped mine!
