Deep Dive: All About Our Chamomile Eye Cream, from What’s In It to the Best Way to Apply It

There are two kinds of people in this world: the ones who swear by using eye cream and the ones who think that it is a waste of money. I can definitely say that I belong in the first group. 

Good eye cream is like a secret potion for youthful eyes, and once you realize that, you’ll understand why I’m super excited about our helichrysum and chamomile eye cream.

I want to tell you all about it, and I’ll do exactly that in this post!

Why Do You Need an Eye Cream?

Certain parts of our skin are thicker and stronger than others (I explained it all in detail in our ultimate skin guide), and the skin around the eyes is the thinnest, and therefore, the most sensitive.

Since it is more prone to dryness, this part of your skin tends to age first. With all that movement of our eyes and squinting, the lines and wrinkles can also appear first in this area. Not to mention the sun damage and overall your skin making less collagen as you age, which all leads to fine lines and wrinkles making their grand appearance around the eyes.

Then, there’s also the case of puffiness and dark circles. 

Why does this happen? Well, as the skin and muscles that support your eyes weaken, the tissue weakens as well and causes the undereye area to appear puffy.

Do you know why we even have dark circles? It can be from thinning of the skin or when blood vessels constrict and cause hyperpigmentation. The reasons behind this can be many, including:

  • Poor sleeping habit
  • Aging (inherited genes) 
  • Body producing more melanin and causing hyperpigmentation
  • Too much exposure to sunlight
  • Reduced fatty tissue around the eyes
  • Anemia (iron deficiency)
  • Dermatitis

You may not be able to go against your genes or undo the relentless sun tanning when you were young, but what you can do is take care of that delicate skin around your eyes. 

What's In Our Eye Cream?

I’m saying this with pride in my voice that our eye cream contains two holy grail ingredients when it comes to skin: chamomile and helichrysum. These are the main two, but we filled this cream with plenty of different ALL NATURAL & ORGANIC ingredients that your skin will be thankful for.

Chamomile and Helichrysum –
the Golden Duo of Skin Care

One of the two main ingredients is the helichrysum essential oil. There’s is an in-depth post about why we love it so much on our blog, but to sum up its benefits, it fights skin aging and helps our skin tissues recover as fast as possible from damage.

Then there’s the famous chamomile. The extracts we used from the chamomile flower are Matricaria Recutita (chamomile) floral water (aqueous solution of the steam obtained from the chamomile) and German chamomile essential oil (distilled from the flowers and buds of the chamomile species Matricaria chamomilla L).


For centuries now, chamomile has been used to soothe dry and irritated skin. It has antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties. 

While the chamomile soothes and detoxicates the skin, the helichrysum protects the skin’s collagen and elastin and aids in tissue remodeling.

Our Nourshing Ingredients that Make This Eye Cream Great

Here are some other ingredients that we mixed up in this cream and that are worth mentioning:

  • Witch Hazel distillate   Used by Native Americans to cure skin irritation and inflammation; it helps with cleansing, regulating the skin's oil production, tightening, toning, and soothing.
  • Pomegranate seed oil – Helps with the reversal of skin damage, boosts collagen production, moisturizes, and enhances skin elasticity.
  • Neroli floral water – Has antibacterial properties and does wonders when it comes to toning and freshening skin, and smells royally divine! 
  • Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) – Increasingly popular niacinamide, helps with retaining moisture and builds keratin—that well-known protein that keeps your skin firm and healthy.
  • Panthenol (Pro Vitamin B5) – Reduces the amount of water lost and enhances the skin's barrier function which leads to improved skin texture and more elasticity.
  • Aloe Vera leaf extract – Works on many different fronts, from its role as an anti-oxidant to its anti-inflammatory and soothing functions.

 

  • Rosemary Officinalis essential oil – Stimulates skin healing and cleanses the skin, leaving the complexion nice and refreshed.


To finalize our list of ingredients (it’s all out in the open with our products), here’s what else you can find in it:

  • Distilled Water
  • Heterotheca inuloides (Arnica) oil
  • Oenothera biennis (Evening Primrose) oil
  • Cetyl Alcohol
  • Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) seed oil
  • Sodium Lactate
  • ECOCERT Emulsifying wax (Glyceryl Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Sodium Stearyl Lactylate)
  • ECOCERT Preservative (Benzyl Alcohol, Salicylic Acid, Glycerin, Sorbic Acid)

What Does Our Eye Cream Do for You?

 

For whom is this eye cream? The answer is simple: for everyone.

Since all of the ingredients are either derived from nature and/or certified organic, they can do no harm to this sensitive part of your skin—they can only be of help. This is especially important for people who have allergies to chemical products; as with all Glowing Orchid products, this cream has no harmful chemicals in sight. 

We made sure that our eye cream is suitable for all ages and different purposes. Some of the main benefits are:

  • Strengthening and hydrating the skin around the eyes
  • Reducing the look of lines and wrinkles
  • Reducing the puffiness and dark circles

If you can relate to any of these problems or you want to prevent them from appearing, you’ll love our eye cream. But don’t just take my word for it. You can read the impressions of the people who’ve already tried it—reviews are the best indicator! Our customers mention seeing an improvement in the skin texture, tighter skin under their eyes, reduced puffiness, and more!

For those of you who can’t stand the overpowering smell of creams and beauty products, you’ll be happy to know that this cream has a nice soothing smell, so even the ones with a sensitive nose will enjoy it. 

How To Use Our Chamomile Eye Cream


If you are new to the eye cream fan club, there’s a key tip for applying this type of product. Never pull the skin under your eyes, but gently dab it. So, no massaging, no dragging, just a gentle dab will do.

Let’s go over the application procedure step by step:

  1. Place a tiny amount of the eye cream on your ring finger (it is the weakest finger of all, which makes it the perfect tool for applying the eye cream on that delicate under-eye skin)
  2. Dab the cream under your eyes (don’t forget the outer side where wrinkles tend to appear)
  3. Get on with your day!

You should use it twice a day for the best results. Since the cream leaves no greasy residue (I really hate that) and dries up quickly, you can use it in the morning before you put on your makeup without any trouble. 

A little goes a long way with this cream, so be prepared that the jar will last a long time!

Final Thoughts

Sensitive skin such as the under-eye area deserves all the love it can get. With our eye cream, you’ll get the best that nature has to offer for tackling any problem that this part of the skin may face.

If you give it a try, please let us know how it worked out for you! We’re excited to hear about your experience and whether you love it as much as we do :)
