The Eye Creme from Jeffrey James Botanicals is formulated with an array of potent yet gentle oils and herbs. It’s everything I expect from a nutritive, anti-aging eye cream—and more.
The Jeffrey James Botanicals Eye Creme can be applied lightly under makeup for daytime use, or a bit heavier to nourish a tired eye area in the evening.

This ingredient list is compelling for a few reasons. Of course there are quality, skin-loving oils like tamanu, rosehip seed oil and cold-pressed grapeseed oil. I love those oils, but they’re not particularly unusual in natural skincare formulations. There are also renewing essential oils such as helichrysum and lemongrass.
But then we get into a couple of herbal ingredients not often utilized to great effect in skincare, namely licorice, eyebright and Oregon grape. Licorice is a gentle skin lightener, and eyebright serves to tighten and refine the eye area. Oregon grape, in particular, is a powerful herb that has a place of honor in my own cupboard. Taken internally, Oregon grape strengthens weak digestion and improves liver complaints, even helping acne in the process. Used topically, as in this eye creme, Oregon grape improves the texture and health of skin.
The final result of these expertly combined oils and herbs is a natural eye cream that I absolutely adore.

After using this eye cream twice daily for six weeks, I’ve hardly made a dent in the pot. At this rate, this product will last at least six months. I’ll count that as yet another reason to love this eye cream.
