DIY AM & PM Eye Cream



Have fine lines, wrinkles, or dry skin around your eyes? Try my day and night recipe to diminish those problems. This is also a great to slow down aging. It's never to late to start.

Side note, there is a misconception that only a certain age should use eye cream. Let me bust that myth! Skin care is based on skin issues and concerns, not by our age. Why so? We have different lifestyles, diets and skin types so one person may not need this while others do at any age.

I am surprised that most brands at store do not contain any SPF. We all know that too much sun exposure over time cause us to age faster and risk of skin cancer. I decided to make to formulas. This one is a day cream that moisturize all day without the greasy feel with protection from the sun.

Day Eye Cream



What I use to make eye cream every 6 months. You can always skip a ingredient if you don't have that concern. Also, make sure to do a skin patch test to make sure you are not allergic or sensitive to any of these ingredients. If you are, please do not use it or use an alternative. I do make a few suggestions just in case. 


Tools and materials I used:

-       Measuring Spoon: http://amzn.to/189E3DY
-       Popsicle Sticks: http://amzn.to/1KG2e0n
-       Lip Balm Jar: http://amzn.to/1Kw9XLo
-       Stove:  http://amzn.to/1aX9ILc
-       Pan
-       Pyrex Cup: http://amzn.to/1hKDPZS
-       Raw Unrefined Organic Shea Butter: http://amzn.to/1ouQapy
-       Sunscreen: http://amzn.to/1G7ODOr
-       Rosehip Seed Oil: http://amzn.to/1FjpPfA
-       Vitamin E Cream or Facial Moisturizer: http://amzn.to/1PWIr07
-       Coconut Oil: http://amzn.to/1wkVLyF
-       Evening Primrose Oil: http://amzn.to/1LUwum6
-       Avocado Oil: http://amzn.to/1HXP7ac
-       Olive Oil: http://amzn.to/1I1T9vs
-       Jojoba Oil: http://amzn.to/1FmU9XA


On low heat, melt 1 teaspoonful of shea butter or suggested in below. If you are allergic to tree nuts, use mango butter instead. Once the shea butter is half melted, let it cool down before mixing with other ingredients. I let it cool for 10 to 15 minutes.

Oh yea, if you are wondering what is unrefined and refined butter? Refined is a processed by using chemicals that can remove nutrients and natural order of the butter. Unrefined or raw butter is extracted without the use of toxic chemicals or synthetics.

I add 1/4 teaspoonful of sunscreen into a lip balm jar container. You can also use a contact lens case.

Add 5 drops of rosehip seed oil into a lip balm jar container.

Add 1 teaspoonful of vitamin E cream or facial moisturizer into lip jar container and pour the melted shea butter to mix. 

The melted butter will eventually cool down and harden to bind all the ingredients together! This feels amazing on as it soaks into my skin within 5 minutes.


Night Eye Cream

For the night cream, this is a rich intense moisturizer. When I wake up, my eyes feel so soft, supple, and radiant. 

Melt on low heat 1 tsp of shea butter, coconut oil or mango butter. Set it aside to cool down for 10 to 15 minutes. 

With a clean needle, I sprayed rubbing alcohol to sterilize before piercing 1 capsule of evening primrose oil into my jar. 

 Pour 1/4 of tsp of avocado oil, olive oil, coconut oil, or jojoba oil into the mixture.

Once the shea butter has cool down, pour it into the container and mix. Then set it aside to cool for 10 to 20 minutes until it looks like it is solidifying.


 Mix unit it looks like lotion this is when oil can bind to cream.




Use 1/2 tsp of vitamin E and mix it well until I get a thick whipped eye cream.

Go ahead and try, these eye cream are good for 6 months before making a new batch. 

For day eye cream, I let the cream soak into my skin for a few minutes before apply makeup. This will avoid my foundation from looking cakey or creasing. I hope you learn a lot from this and take care of your skin!

  1. Have you ever added vegetable glycerin to any of your products to help with absorption? I have made and tried both of these creams but find them too oily and they take hours to absorb. Thanks for sharing the recipes, I like the eye gel a lot.

  2. With continuous hardworking, it is very difficult to feel fresh and perform any job with dedication so nap is the big medicine for this problem. If someone is feeling tired then he should take nap of one or two hours which will make him fresh as well as boost his memory.

  6. Your information is good. People often find makeup will dry dull skin around the eyes, dark and no confidence without going makeup. The skin around the eyes is extremely sensitive so you have to take care of the right way and overcome early to avoid the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes earlier than age.!

  12. Great Recipes .. However I would like to ask you about the Vitamin C Serum. Are you still using the same?? I have hyper pigmentation in some area (cheeks and the corner of one eye) and I've tried a lot and nothing seem to work so I thought I would give it a try... If not asking you a lot, apologies for this can you please film a whole skin care routine including all the DIY recipes you use??? Thanks in advance... www.mythoughts-corner.blogspot.com
