I love infusing oil with coffee for two reasons. First off, the infused oil smells absolutely heavenly. Second, caffeine actually benefits the skin. It’s a win win! If you missed my coffee infusion post, find it HERE. Let’s make a super easy DIY Coffee Bean Eye Roll On!
An extremely easy way to enjoy the benefits of a coffee infused oil is to simply add a couple of coffee beans to an anti aging carrier oil such as rosehip seed oil, moringa oil, sweet almond oil, marula oil etc. and allow the infusion to happen over a few days. You don’t even have to remove the beans!
Benefits of Caffeine Skin Care:
- Increase circulation
- Lighten dark circles
- Smooth cellulite
- Reduce inflammation
- Tighten skin
- Repair sun damage
DIY Coffee Bean Eye Roll On:
2-3 Organic Coffee Beans
- Use a small funnel to add each ingredient into a 10ml roll on bottle like THIS one.
- You can use immediately but the coffee beans will take a day or two to infuse.
- You can remove the coffee beans after a week if you like. I left mine in and ended up with a very weird smelling roll on. I also originally used 6 coffee beans and found that to be entirely too strong.
Gently roll around the eyes morning and night to reduce puffiness, reduce the appearance of dark circles and hydrate the delicate tissue around the eyes.
This DIY is so easy yet so great for around the eyes! These days I need all the help I can get de-puffing around my eyes! I’m excited to make another roll on for friends and family (and with less beans!)! Let me know if you try it and how you like it!
P.S. I’ve been on a label making kick lately! Below is the label download. I highly recommend you order them from Sticker You. Their labels are waterproof and restickable. They even hold up in the dish washer! Read THIS post for detailed instructions on how to use Sticker You. If you’d rather print them yourself (and can get you printer alignment right, because I can’t!) simply save the label picture and upload to Avery.com. Use THESE labels for the correct size.
