Herbfarmacy Just Eyes Review.


I've mentioned the Just Eyes Eye cream from Herbfarmacy previously in my Winter Essentials post, but wanted to give it it's own little moment on my blog today as it's pretty great.

Before I decided to purchase this I wasn't using any form of eye care and my poor peepers needed some TLC. I pretty much read the description and every review available for all the eye creams available on naturisimo, I was looking for something light on the skin and light on my wallet. We all know how crazy expensive eye creams can be, I'm not sure what they're putting in some of them to be charging so much but luckily this Herbfarmacy offering was a bargain waiting to be found. I had heard a little about Herbfarmacy before deciding to purchase this eye cream... but for those of you who don't know, Herbfarmacy is a Soil Association certified brand founded in our very own Herefordshire by botanist Dr Paul Richards. All Herbfarmacy products are handmade in small batches here in the UK, with many of the herbs used grown on their very own herb farm.

The Just Eyes eye cream is a lightweight cream to soothe and firm the delicate skin around the eye area. However I was most interested in the Arnica that is the main ingredient in this eye cream, to help reduce dark circles. I've used arnica a lot in the past so it's an ingredient I trust and know works for me, and I was definitely sold on this cream when I saw the mention of Arnica. I don't have the worlds worst dark circles by any means but I know they're there and a dab of concealer under the eyes is always a must. Since introducing this eye cream into my routine in October I have seen a slight reduction in my dark circles and my eye area in general is looking pretty perky. I haven't been using this religiously though as I do find it quite rich (thankfully it doesn't contain any shea butter or coconut oil) and so alternate it with the Kahina Eye Serum as something lighter. I don't often find myself with dry skin, even in winter but I do reach for this when the central heating and cold winds have been doing their worst as it feels so lovely on the skin. I also notice it has some immediate brightening properties and really wakes up the eye area without a hint of shimmer.

The eye cream is completely fragrance free, perfect for sensitive skins and the super luxe frosted glass bottle makes it seem much more expensive than it really is, plus it comes with a handy pump to keep everything nice and hygienic. The pump itself doesn't dispense too much product, though I only ever need at the very most half a pump for both eyes.
All in all a fabulous, uncomplicated little eye cream that does what in says on the tin, what more could you want?

  1. Oh I definitely want to try this - thanks for writing about it! The one step I'm missing in my routine is a good eye cream, and due to having very sensitive, dry skin I've been leaning towards something on the natural side of life. Definitely will give this a look! T xx

  2. Nice post!
    To answer your question, I am not sure eye cream composition differ that much from face creams apart from selectiing the right ingredients and texture for the area.
    I use sometimes an eye cream. i am using Bare skin one at the moment but will soon start Acure eye cream.

  3. This sounds great and I love that it has a pump! I'm currently using a Laidbare eye cream which I hate, it smells weird and is in a tube so I always end up with way too much cream and wasting it!
    The price of this eye cream is extremely reasonable too!

  4. This sounds really great. Didn't know that Arnica helps with dark circles, good to know that. I'm currently using an eye cream form Himalaya herbals and I really like it, but I'll be checking out this one as well :)
