Skin Quench - Today I Am an Eye Cream
Why use Skin Quench all purpose cream as an Eye Balm?
If your skin is in need of extra help, then unrefined cocoa butter is the super hero in that department!
Moisture protects your skin and keeps your skin soft and supple. Your skin should be able to do this on its own - but during the Winter, or if your skin is struggling to obtain the nutrients it needs, then a little extra help may be required? So, today "I am going to be an EYE BALM".
When applying cocoa butter [and don't forget all those other rather lovely butters and oils] to the eye area the emollient cocoa butter creates a protective barrier between your skin and the environment which locks in much needed moisture. Unrefined cocoa butter is vitamin rich, and especially high in Vitamin E which also helps with skin repair.
What our customers say "I've had eczema around my eyes for years. It always comes back in winter time. If I use a good cream on it doesn't get worse. But, my eye was very puffy yesterday as I kept rubbing my eye and I was thinking I'll have to go to the doctor to get my usual steroid ointment. I put extra skin quench on the eye lid, the eczema is in the crease and it was starting to spread. I woke up this morning. My eye looked so much better and had stopped itching. Less red and roar looking. I put some more on this morning and my eyes look less puffy and the redness has completely gone. I am very very impressed."
