Aster & Bay
Avo Eye Serum
aster & bay Avocado oil is cold-pressed from the green fruit that surrounds the seed, passing on the incredible fatty acid profile that has garnered the avocado superfood status in recent years. This rich oil is an aster & bay favourite for the delicate skin around the eye area, which is thinner than the rest of the face.
Avocado oil paired with Green Coffee Bean oil which is also cold-pressed from unroasted green coffee beans. As the beans have not undergone any heat treatment, they contain higher levels of vitamins, fatty acids, and phytonutrients. Naturally containing a small amount of caffeine, Green Coffee Bean oil is remarkable at reducing puffiness and undereye circles.
Directions: Apply to the skin under and on the side of the eyes, dabbing and gently patting in with one finger until it is absorbed. Can be used in the morning and evening. Avoid getting oil in the eyes.
aster & bay tip: Keep your Avo Eye Serum in the fridge for a cooling undereye treatment.

About aster & bay: Erin Hammond began aster & bay in 2012 as an experimental project while she was undergoing training in western herbalism. After having lived in both Edinburgh, Scotland and Atlanta, Georgia, she was inspired by the botanical diversity and herbal lore of both places- the Appalachian Mountains and the Scottish Highlands- and sought to incorporate as many of these indigenous ingredients into her formulations as possible.
Now back in Scotland, aster & bay is run by Erin and her husband Glen out of an old biscuit factory in Edinburgh. Whether it's sourcing local herbs from the Highlands or sea salt from the British coastline, aster & bay is still rooted in the spirit of whole plant ingredients, minimalism, and craft.
