Put water phase ingredients into a glass pyrex jug.
Put oil phase ingredients into a glass pyrex jug.
Heat both to 70c and hold for about 20 minutes at this temperature.
Mix the water phase ingredients into the oil phase ingredients and stir with stick blender until completely mixed. Use a hand blender once or twice more whilst mixture cools.
When temperature reaches around 45c, add cool down ingredients. Use hand blender again to mix.
Allow mixture to come to room temperature and spoon into jars. Enjoy!

Just adjust the main recipe above and instead use 120g (40%) water and add extra 6g (2%) Glycerin [to water phase ingredients] and 12g (4%) Squalane (aromantic.co.uk) [to oil phase ingredients]. You could also go for slightly heavier carrier oils; Almond, Jojoba, etc.

*** Revital-Eyes is an anti-aging, anti-wrinkling, lifting, tightening, reducing dark circles and bags under eyes. It is quite crucial to having the most amazing eye cream. You can get it from the company shown in Italy (though they have had some issues of shipping since Brexit, so last time I got it from the same online store in the USA and paid for the extra shipping – about £35 to the UK). As I only get it every couple of years, I find it is well worth it.
