An Amazing Alternative to Eye Cream


Jamaican Black Castor Oil, $12

A few months ago I found a replacement for my eye cream that is super inexpensive  concentrated, and most importantly works! I’m talking about Jamaican Black Castor Oil – it’s my can’t live without product. You can find it at most beauty supply and health food stores, and it’s only about 12 bucks for a very large 8oz bottle. I use my JBCO as an eye cream every single night.

Let me tell you a little bit about my eye cream journey. I started seeing visible lines under my eyes and freaked out, so I decided to start using eye cream. I don’t have bags (yet), my lines were right underneath the bottom lash line which is pretty close to my eyeballs. After using a few eye creams (which shall remain nameless) I noticed that they all made my eyes burn and get really red when I used them where my line were. Is it just me or is expecting a product made specifically for the eyes not to feel like scorching acid too much? I did a little research and learned that Jamaican Black Castor Oil was supposed to be extremely gentle. I also read that it was all natural, and it stimulates elastin and collagen production. The price was right; it was almost $20 cheaper than most eye creams I tried, so I gave it a shot. What I noticed first was that there was no perfume like smell, and I was able to get right up to my waterline with no irritation at all–winning!

Eye jbcoI began using it every night and  got really great results after only a couple of weeks. My lines plumped up and were way less visible; thank goodness because Botox was calling me.  I was a little afraid that it may cause me to break out but it never has. It’s really thick so one bottle of JBCO can last you over a month, even when applied generously. My favorite brand is Tropic Isle Living, give it a try it will change your life and save you some serious cash.
