The area around our eyes is 10 times thinner than the rest of our faces. It needs a lot of love.
Some people are still against the use of oil on this area, arguing that it can cause styes, milia seeds and it can blurry or even stain contact lenses. And most people would use nothing else.
As a contact lenses wearer I can say that, yes, if it get in your eyes it may sting a bit and cause a mess on your contacts. It doesn't take a genius to learn how to be careful.
The oils recommended for eye area are light, very spreadable and amazing light fruit scents.
