DIY Anti-Puff Eye Roller (Cooling, Firming + Anti-Aging) – Homemade Recipe for Under Eye Circles and Bags.




When I heard about Anti-Puff Eye Rollers for the first time I knew RIGHT AWAY that I needed one! Well, who doesn't?! No wonder there are more and more of those on the market, yet their natural versions are still hard to find and hard to afford, that's why I had to come up with my own;-)))) It turned out quite easy to make plus I decided to add some moisturizing, firming and anti-aging ingredients to it so that I don't have to apply any eye cream after that - yes, I'm lazy like that;-) Ok, let's get it rolling?
WHAT I USE:

--2 parts Aloe Vera Gel - moisturizes, firms and renews skin cells (source) -  I love Lily of the Desert one, because it's all natural and contains vitamins E, C and A which have great anti-aging properties.
--0.5 part Pure Whole Leaf Aloe Vera Juice - same benefits as aloe vera gel, but in a liquid form which makes it easier for application - it usually goes with 1% lemon juice in it
--1/8 part Vit.C powder (as ascorbic acid) (optional) - one of the most effective anti-wrinkle ingredients (source), yet I added just a tiny bit, since my Aloe Vera Gel already has some vit.C in it
--1/8 part Caffeine Powder (optional) -one of the most effective ingredients to fight dark circles and under-eye bags (source)

WHAT I DO: I first  mix the juice and the powders (caffeine and vitamins) Caffeine doesn't dissolve easily, so the juice needs to be room temperature or slightly above. But ones the solution cools down caffeine crystallizes, so it's important not to add too much of it. After that I stir in my aloe vera gel and pour the mixture into a roller tube. 

HOW I USE IT:
I store the roller in the fridge (cool temperature reduces swelling and under-eye bags - source) and apply every morning as an "awake and sing" remedy for my eyes;-)

  4. I actually had an eye roller on my shopping list but now I might just make one myself! :D Thanks a lot for sharing this wonderful recipe Maria! I love your blog and work so much!

    Just a few questions regarding this recipe, what to do if I don't have a bottle of aloe leaf juice? Can I juice aloe leaves in my own blender and whether I should blend it with the gel in it or after extracting the gel? Also, how much water should I add to the leaves for juicing? :) x

    1. Thank you so much, Jadirah - I'm glad you found it helpful;-)) As for the juice - you don't have to use whole leaf juice (it's just what I was using), you can definitely use just regular aloe vera juice (which is easier to find and it has the same benefits)

  18. Do you know that the higher something is, the greater its gravitational potential energy. When we go back to the Middle Ages, weapons called Trebuchets were used to take an advantage of this principle, using mechanical advantage and the gravitational potential energy of a counterweight to hurl rocks and other projectiles צוואה through or over walls. In modern times we use the gravitational potential of water to create hydroelectricity - electricity produced from hydropower.

  19. In most cases, before making an arrest a police officer must read this list of rights to the suspect. It is called the Miranda warning because of the 1966 Supreme Court decision, Miranda v. Arizona. When Ernesto Miranda was רשלנות רפואית arrested and questioned by the  police, the information he gave them  was used against him at his trial. This  was a direct violation of the Fifth Amendment of the Bill of Rights. Miranda appealed, claiming that his rights were violated

  20. People have different reasons for writing blog comments. What's yours? Are you trying to get the attention of an influential blogger? Drive traffic to your own blog? Establish yourself as an expert on a topic? Do you appreciate the person's work עורך דין מקרקעין and  want to say thank you or brighten his or her day? Do you disagree  so strongly with what you're viewing or reading that you simply can't let it stand without a rebuttal?

  21. If that is indeed the case, it may be time for you to reconsider the use of wrinkle removing cream.
