Horse Chestnut Flower

(Aesculus hippocastanum)

Our horse chestnut flower extract is grown on a cooperative organic plantation in the Ardeche Mountatins Regional Nature Park. The flowers are manually picked when they are fully open to avoid any damage.

Borage Seed Oil

(Borago officinalis)

Renowned for its fantastic moisturising properties, we source our borage from England, where the pure, GLA-rich oil is pressed from the shiny, dark brown seeds of the bright blue flower.

Echinacea Extract

(Echinacea angustifolia/purpurea)

Used for its toning and conditioning properties, Echinacea is native to North America. We source our skin-smoothing extract from within the United Kingdom, where the plant is harvested in July and August before the ingredient is extracted and micro-filtered from the flowers, leaves and stem.

Aqua (water), Hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) water, PEG-60 almond glycerides, Glycerin, Decyl glucoside, Centaurea cyanus (cornflower) flower extract, Euphrasia officinalis extract, Aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice, Phenoxyethanol, Panthenol, Benzoic acid, Dehydroacetic acid, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium hydroxide, Citric acid, Sodium benzoate, Potassium sorbate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I love this eye cream. The fine nozzle makes application easy, with no waste. Once applied the cream soaks into the skin. The colour is great. As I wear sunglasses a lot I usually have “Panda eyes” which does not occur when using this tinted cream.

I have dark circles not sure what eye cream to use  Do you send out samples to try 

Asked by: Kamy
Hello thank you for your message. We do not have samples to send, as we have such a generous returns policy. If for any reason your purchase is not suitable for your use or you do not like, we are happy to exchange or refund within 60 days of you receiving your order, even after you've tried it. We feel this is more beneficial to our customers than providing samples, as it gives you the opportunity to try the product for some time to decide if it is suitable for you before committing to your purchase. For dark circles, we would recommend our Instant Brightening Eye cream, as this lightweight eye cream leaves the entire eye area looking instantly brighter and feeling more hydrated, reducing the appearance of dark circles for a revitalised, wide-awake look. I hope this information is helpful, but please do not hesitate to contact us directly on 01983 813 913 if you require any further assistance. Best Wises - The Liz Earle Beauty Co Team
