“We’re not usually one to jump on the CBD bandwagon, but this eye cream from New York City-based TribeTokes — a fabulous, canna-friendly company founded by two fabulous, canna-friendly women — has changed our minds. The combination of butters and oils (shea, avocado, hemp — you get the idea) plus CBD instantly helps with puffy under-eyes. Pro-tip: Keep it in your fridge, and no one will ever know about your hangovers.”

WHY IS EYE CREAM SO IMPORTANT?
The challenge for an amazing eye cream formulation is to have effective, nutrient rich ingredients that TACKLE problem issues such as puffiness, dark circles and dehydration, but are gentle enough for the skin around your eyes, which is thinner and more delicate than the rest of your face…
…AND WE THINK WE NAILED IT
In addition to 100mg of CBD, which helps with inflammation, redness and puffiness, here is the breakdown of the other incredible ingredients in this eye cream:
Aloe Vera: Contains antioxidants, enzymes, Vitamins A and C, and it is highly anti-inflammatory. Aloe can help treat burns, acne and dry skin.
Arnica: Known best for healing bruises faster, this same process can be applied to dark circles! Arnica reduces swelling and stimulates blood vessels, helping them to dissipate more quickly
Avocado Oil: Rich in beneficial monounsaturated fatty acids like oleic acid, avocado oil is extremely good at hydrating and softening skin, and can be an effective treatment for eczema
Cannabidiol: Anti-inflammatory, reducing redness and puffiness
Beeswax: Forms a protective wall by sealing in moisture in our skin without smothering and clogging up the pores. Beeswax also carries antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties.
Birch Extract: Extracted from the European white birch tree, this is high in phytochemicals that have serve as potent antioxidants, astringents, and circulatory stimulants
Marigold Flower (Calendula) Extract: Calendula oil has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties that heal, sooth, and relieve irritated skin or rashes
Cocoa Butter: Improves elasticity, hydrates and nourishes due to high concentration of fatty acids, which form a protective barrier over your skin to hold in moisture
Shea Butter: Softens skin, soothes blemishes, and reduces the appearance of stretch marks and wrinkles – without clogging pores – due to high concentrations of fatty acids. Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties.
Sunflower Seed Oil: High in Vitamin E, which helps with elasticity and wrinkles, sunflower oil is also high in antioxidants that can protect against UV’s harmful rays
Apply a pea-sized amount to each eye, dabbing small dots under and around your eyes and along the brow bone. To avoid pulling the skin gently pat the cream from the inner corner to the outer corner until it’s absorbed. Wait a couple of minutes before applying sunscreen or makeup. This may be obvious but DO NOT apply directly into your eye 🙂
