DIY Eye Serum
Let’s face it, it’s the end of summer. We’ve vacationed, gardened, spent time with our families and friend and we are tired. Well, at least I am! So I set out to find something to help me look less tired! I rely on my morning cup of coffee to put some pep in my step and I thought it would also be useful to pep up my looks. Check out how below…

Why did I choose Meadowfoam for this project? Meadowfoam Carrier Oil contains 98% fatty acids long-chain carbon atoms. It is resistant to oxidation due to naturally occurring tocopherols, and is one of the most stable lipids known and will actually extend the shelf life of less stable ingredients. As a result, it has an extremely long shelf life. Meadowfoam Carrier Oil has wonderful moisturizing and rejuvenating properties and is highly recommended for use in cosmetics and skin care products especially for its UV protection properties. It is a key ingredient in many different products such as suntan lotion, massage oils and lotions, hand/facial creams, hair and scalp products, cuticle repair cream, foundations, rouges, face powders, lip sticks, shampoos, shaving creams and various other balms. Meadowfoam absorbs easily into the skin leaving a silky smooth feel.
