The skin in the eye area is so tender. Some things are treatable. Some things are unavoidable because of what’s passed down from family. But that doesn’t mean that we throw caution to the wind. No matter what we’ve done to our eyes with makeup, or how unavoidable daddy dearests dark circles are, we still put in extra care for the skin in that area. Is it possible to tame these beasts? Yes. So, you’re probably wondering…

So, you’re probably wondering, ‘what can I look for that is cruelty-free and vegan?’ I have a special three items you may appreciate. 


DeVita Revitalizing Eye Lift Creme – This brand was mainly well known a few years ago for their once popular SPF 30 before the formula changed. I rarely heard about any other product available to the brand despite the fact that it expanded even into makeup. After reading heaps of positive reviews on this eye cream, I went for it. Even though I have no used it for a long period of time, here are so many things I love about it. It relieves any dryness I may have around the entire eye area and feels slightly rich. Possibly because of the shea butter within it. I am also not sure if this is the norm. But you get so much product inside this container. It’s going to last me well over a year. I call that a money saving benefit that comes with this product.


Extra Things You’ll Love…

  • Contains hyaluronic acid
  • Contains vitamin K
  • First ingredient is aloe vera gel
  • Certified organic
  • Gluten-free
  • Container is made of glass

100% Pure Bright Eyes Mask – Three words. Worth-Every-Penny. Puffy or dry, it doesn’t matter. Whether you’re a busy parents or student, these are very convenient because it takes but a moment to apply and remove and you can continuously see the effects because of the serum left behind. I feel like the hydrogel material that the masks are made from help to lock in the serum into the skin. Sometimes I wonder whether the paper sheet masks evaporate. My eyes are so much brighter and puffiness for me completely disappears.

  • Contains green tea
  • Made of 95% organic aloe water

Small tip: Put one packet in the fridge for 15 to 20 minutes before use. It has an amazing cooling sensation. 

Nourish Organic Avocado + Argan Eye Treatment – I had tried a sample I received from Nordstrom of a very popular brand that has a product with a similar concept with the avocado. I admit, it was lovely. It did an amazing job with nourishing my eye area. But, the downside was that it was tested on animals. I happened to run across this item on an Instagram I follow. And I ran to see if it was available on Vitacost or Luckyvitamin. Thankfully it was. I often heard of this kind of applicators being cooling upon touch to the skin. And it is. The animal tested eye cream I had tried was extremely nourishing but intensely thick. Which can weigh heavily on the delicate skin.This product from Nourish is moisturizing but very light and thin and absorbs quickly.


Extra Things You’ll Love…

  • Additional ingredients are rosehip, shea butter, cupuacu, rice bran and vitamin E
  • Certified Organic
  • GMO-free
  • Gluten-free

I hope this post has been helpful for some people who are looking for effect and relieving products for whatever it is you may be dealing with at this current point in time. As you can see, aloe and avocado have been the theme of this post when it comes to the skin around the eyes. I find it to be more potent that most common skincare products that primarily contain water. I know there are some who think going cruelty-free, vegan and/or clean with their products means giving up on products that are not as effective in their performance when it comes to skincare. It’s just a matter of looking hard and taking a chance.

Now, pardon me. I’m going to go eat avocado on toast. Cheers!
