To use an eye cream you only need a small drop. Pat the cream into the skin around the eye. It is best to apply with your pinky finger because the skin by the eye is very delicate so you want to be very careful. You do not want to tug on it, instead try tapping lightly. Tapping tells our skin to wake up. It is a nice benefit to add an eye cream to your skin care regime. Try it and see how it feels to you.

If you are looking to make your own natural eye cream, we suggest the Chamomile and Eyebright Eye Cream Formulation. It is a little bit richer than the Revitalizing Eye Cream, leaving a dewy look. Great for a pick-me-up and freshening up of the eyes.
