The two varieties of green tea in this eye balm help reduce darkness and the appearance of puffiness around your eyes. We use gentle and light oils that won't irritate the fragile skin around your eyes but will help promote healthy collagen levels and skin elasticity so your skin will look smooth and taut. Beeswax is an anti-allergen which can help combat redness, swelling and inflammation while also protecting skin from the elements and retaining moisture. The Cucumber Matcha eye balm is perfect for mature skin but can be used on all skin types and is a fantastic preventative treatment for morning and night.
