A gentle eye cream made with coffee oil extracted from repurposed grounds and anti-inflammatory maple bark extract, a by-product of the wood industry. Reduce the appearance of dark circles and fine lines whilst brightening and refreshing your skin.
- Suitable for all skin types
- Handmade in the UK
- Cruelty free
- Palm oil free
- Housed in a 10ml glass bottle in fully recyclable packaging. The standard packaging is a black plastic PP pump (per the images) but I have arranged with UpCircle to offer a 'pump-less' option for your future re-stocks so that you can keep the same plastic pump and reduce waste.
How to use:
Press the pump to release a small amount of eye cream onto your finger tips. Dab onto the delicate eye area and allow the cream to soak into the skin. This cream can be used morning and night - UpCircle recommend to use it as the first part of the moisturising section of your skincare routine.

UpCircle Eye Cream with Maple and Coffee
The whole UpCircle mission is to prevent a linear economy by repurposing ingredients that would otherwise be thrown away. This eye cream is made with coffee oil extracted from repurposed grounds and anti-inflammatory maple bark extract, a by-product of the wood industry. Both of these ingredients would otherwise have ended up in landfill, which to me, makes this product a massive improvement in itself!
Not only this, but all of their products are vegan, cruelty free, sustainable, palm oil free, organic and 100% recyclable packaging that is as plastic free as possible!
Before I started my plastic free journey, I used to get all of my skin care products from The Body Shop. As a comparison, eye creams on The Body Shop vary from £8.50 to £20 depending on the range, so at £14.99 this is a fairly average price for an eye cream, with all of the added environmental benefits!
I am currently using up my old eye cream so once it has run out I will be giving this a try.
