Genetic under Eye bags? What’s best!

SlimP
If you’re like me, I’ve had puffy under eye area my whole life. In fact, there’s a hideous second grade photo of me that I’m sure sparked my insecurities. I have tried many products some help reduce the appearance of my under eye bags and some do absolutely NADA! Here are my top favorite products to decrease the appearance of my genetic eye puffiness. 1. belif - Eye Bomb Gwp
In all my time searching. This has been the best find for me personally. When I use this cream I can definitely see that my eye puffiness went down. 2. ORIGINS - GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff
This is my second favorite. I only put this second because I later learned that when paired with the Belif Eye Bomb, it’s perfect. This eye cream definitely brightens so you do not need much at all and keeps your under eye area brightened and lifted all day. 3. The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG
My most recent discovery. This under eye solution does visibly depuff my under eye area. The consistency is not my favorite, I like thicker under eye creams. But I can say that it does make my eye area look more awakened. I read that this product takes awhile so...tbc I really hope this post helps someone like me with genetic under eye puffiness. Or atleast gives them some hope that there is a product or combination of products that helps them feel better about this unique issue.

These are my ride or die
So, I have an autoimmune disease and I tend to have lots of inflammation. That being said, when I wake up puffy like a blow fish 🐠.... these are my life savers ! The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG this little baby packs a punch! De-puffs and gives my eyes a wake up call!! It is unique in that it is not a cream. At first I wasn’t sure, but I’m hooked. One drop on each eye does the trick. Easy to apply, smooth and silky! Wake up those peepers with this little bottle of magic 🪄!! mizz bloom - JADE ROLLER this is my go to in morning to drain my lymphatic system. I keep mine in my skin fridge, so it is nice and cold! Add my serums and then have a nice little roll! De puffs my face and helps with contouring. T

Hey whoever is reading this please rate my skincare routine I need to know if it’s okay or not thank you.. 🔆PM🔆 First I start with the CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser This cleanser is amazing for my skin it cleanses very well and doesn’t leave my skin feeling stretchy after words. Then I follow up with The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% this product is really great but I feel like it stop working for me for some reason. After that I go in with RADHA BEAUTY - Rosehip Oil I love this oil so much not only does it fix your complexion but it heals your skin of any kind of damage. I have only used it for about a month so far I like it. Next I go with CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin I don’t really have anything to say about this one I’ve used it for almost a year now and had no problems with it. After moisturizing I use sun bum - Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 this is an amazing sunscreen super lightweight, use it everyday. Then to finish it off I apply The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG I’ve used this one for quite a while now and I haven’t really seen much of a difference unfortunately I might stop using this one so please recommend me something for dark circles. Ps: I use this product for dark circles. 🌙 PM🌙 After I shower I don’t cleanse again because technically I’m cleansing with just water in the shower. I go in withThe Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque love this product the way it cleans your pores and leaves your skin feeling smooth is just great. I only use this product on Friday’s. Then I use The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution only on mondays once a week. Then I use The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 this product is amazing it feels really nice in the skin. Then I follow up with The Ordinary - ''Buffet'' After that I use CeraVe - Skin Renewing Vitamin C Serum I use this for my dark circles but sometimes I’ll use it on my entire face. Then I go back with the CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin Please someone tell me how this is I really need to know if this is okay ....

my am routine
This is my improved morning routine after joining the cherie beauty community! I've added a serum, an eye cream, and an spf, as well as switch my cleanser and toner. I don't wear makeup regularly, but until this routine I've struggled with acne, enlarged pores, and dark circles. I've seen such an improvement. Step one CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser I used to use Burts bees sensitive skin cleanser, but the cerave one is much more hydrating and a better price. Step two HERITAGE STORE - Rosewater Facial Toner I used to use thayers, but I was made aware of how drying it is, and sure enough, this one is much more soothing to my skin. Step three Cos De BAHA - Azelaic Acid 10% Serum with Niacinamide Acne Scar Removal + Redness Relief Face This serum is amazing. I credit it for the amount my pores have shrunk, and it's affordable! Step four ORIGINS - GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff The difference is subtle, but I do think it helps my puffiness and dark circles. Step five WELEDA - Skin Food Light The most amazing moisturizer I have ever used!! So hydrating and soaks into my skin so well. Step six Krave - The Beet Shield This is such a great option for spf. The vitamin c in the formula makes my skin glowy, and it spreads so well. Honestly I'm really happy with the results of this routine. I'll share my pm routine with you guys soon 💖

The benefits of EGCG and caffeine 
The benefits of EGCG and caffeine 
I have combination and sensitive skin. There are fine wrinkles and black circles around my eyes.  I was looking for some eye treatments that are suitable for my sensitive skin type and solve my puffy eyes in the morning. I searched online and I found THE ORDINARY Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG is suitable for my skin concern.  It is an eye treatment for reducing the appearance of eye contour pigmentation and puffiness. it contains the concentration of caffeine and supplemented with highly-purified Epigallocatechin Gallatyl Glucoside (EGCG) from tea leaves. It is my first time to use an eye treatment that contains EGCG. It is a kind of plant compound called catechin and research found that catechin can protect cells from damage and prevent disease.  The ingredient can be found in tea, fruit, and nuts. Studies show that it has a potentially positive impact on health for its antioxidant capacity, the ability to reduce stress and inflammation. Caffeine is also a strong antioxidant that has been famous for its anti-aging benefits. The ingredient can reduce redness and the appearance of wrinkles.  It can also reduce inflammation because of the chlorogenic acid and melanoidins. it can reduce the dark circle under the eye because it helps to dilate blood vessels. Containing both of the ingredients, this product focuses on reducing puffiness and get rid of the black circle. I have applied this serum for two weeks and I feel it is a very hydrating gentle eye serum. both of the ingredients work well with each other. it has a light scent of coffee. The texture is lightweight. I notice there is a difference around my eyes. when I wake up, my puffiness has been reduced and under eyes become brighter. And it also reduces the fine wrinkles. It is an affordable, effective eye serum that works great on my eyes.  The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

Inkey List Brighten-I Cream
Inkey List Brighten-I Cream
I just picked this up a few weeks ago, but so far I am really loving this eye cream! The applicator is metal as shown and it is so cold in the morning, which is perfect for depuffing! The skin around your eyes is very sensitive so I wanted do do a demonstration of how gentle you should be with that area. Always pat/tap your product in, never rub! This has highlighted ingredients which include Mica to illuminate, grant-x 5% to blur the appearance of fine lines, and the brand’s trandmarked ingredient of “Brightenyl 2%” which is said to help brighten the eye contour. I wish there was more transparency on what this last ingredient actually was. Not sure on long term benefits, but this is definitely a great eye cream for a quick depuff and instant brighten. Also for $9.99 you can’t beat the price to atleast try it out. Hope you enjoyed 😊 THE inkey LIST - Brighten-i Eye Cream

Origins was one of my favorite skincare brands when I first started to really get into skincare! This eye cream was one of my first purchases when I was trying to include more of a variety in my routine and I love it! The creamy, shiny texture of this eye cream makes it so easy to apply and it hydrates so well. The only downside is that the results aren’t anything to get too excited about 😕 I liked wearing it in the mornings for an extra shine and it helps momentarily cover bags but not an actual fix! 🧡🤍 ORIGINS - GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff

FORMULA 10.0.6 - Steppin' It Up Vitamin C Moisturizing Spa Eye Balm helped my under eye circles brighten up, and mine are quite pronounced. Prior to begin using daily, I tested on the interior side of my wrist with no reaction. I did have a little trouble with the pump, but after twisting the top off, I gently squeezed all the product to the top to be near the tube tip (the pump has a really short dip tube) and voila! I began using every day, twice a day, by dispensing product onto my ring fingers and gently patting onto my skin. I love this product! No milia or any aversive reaction for me (combo/oily T-zone), luckily. Now, I only use at night in an effort to try to make the product last just a little bit longer. Formula 10.0.6’s products are inexpensive. I just get really attached to my “first” product that works for me. A little goes a long way, as with any eye product as to avoid getting milia. I would recommend this to anyone who asks. It works, contains Vit C and is inexpensive. :)

Earth to Skin is the Walmart skincare brand. And sure, you don’t expect to find quality but quantity at Walmart. But before we go making assumptions based on the cover let’s take a look at it. As a college student on a budget, and a very sensitive skinned person, I can’t have a lot of products I would like. I wanted to take better care of my skin and so I did some research on Walmart’s newly released brand. I was not disappointed! Products Watermelon Hydrating Serum🍉 This product is similar to the Glow Recipe watermelon line. It has almost the exact same smell. Qualities: 🍉 helps with dark spots 🍉 skin literally glows after use 🍉 hydration Downside? It’s a bit sticky. But isn’t noticeable after finishing the 7 step skincare routine. Since it’s a serum, its one of the ones that goes first and other products are layered on top. Avocado Overnight Mask 🥑 The overnight mask helps with radiance and brightening. The next morning after having it on all night will leave your skin brighter with less visible impurities. Qualities: 🥑 helps with brightening 🥑 improves over all complexion evening it out 🥑 easily spreads, little goes a long way Downsides? It’s a bit thick. So when using try to put it on a bit before bed. That way the mask has time to sink into the skin. Banana brightening Eye cream 🍌 This product smells heavenly. It smells like banana pudding. It’s a very heavy smell, so if you’re one that doesn’t like smells this product may not be for you. This eye cream is my current favorite! Qualities: 🍌 After two to three nights of use you can see an over all difference in dark circles under eyes 🍌 smells amazing 🍌 cream texture & oil free, so doesn’t cause milia

My under eye area has always been a concern for my. Even though I am only 25 I have puffiness and a slightly purple color on my under eye area. This is a mix of genetics ( my parents have notorious eye bags ) and my skin colour ( you can even see some of my veins if you come really close to my face haha). Obviously this problem gets worse if I don’t sleep well so I ended up looking tired almost every day. So far I’ve tried some eye creams but I didn’t notice any change or improvement. Around two years ago I decided to give Pigmentclar Eye cream from La Roche Posay and use it for almost 9 months ( but not every day to be honest ). This products claims to reduce /brighten blue - brown circles, improve circulation and improve the appearance of your under eye area. It has caffeine, ferulic acid, glycerine and a lot of other ingredients. Here are my thoughts: Results: none considerable change, I couldn’t notice a big improvement in the color of my under eye area and it slightly peeled my skin in that area. This was a major problem for me because it made it imposible to wear concealer due to the uneven texture of my skin there. Probably some if its ingredients are suppose to give a gentle exfoliation which I didn’t know at that time, now I know better and read the list of ingredients , search for reviews and ask to an expert before trying something new. If you have a more mature skin, not sensitive in that area I will recommend you this product but maybe start with a couple of times a week to see what you can take. Texture and packing: this is the part that I loved it. The applicator deserves five stars for me because of its metal cold applicator. For me this is the best type of applicators for eye creams because it keeps the product clean and it calms the area. I still keep it in my fridge and use it to calm the puffiness. I don’t use the cream any more but I use the applicator to massage. (I couldn’t tag the aye cream but here is a product of the same line) LA ROCHE-POSAY - Pigmentclar Serum Visible Dark Spot Reducer First impressions on CLINIQUE - All About Eyes Rich Eye Cream: I am trying the Light version , not the rich! I’ve been using this cream only for two weeks so I can’t talk about results yet. I like the texture, it is light but it hydrates at the same time, I can’t feel any smell and it’s gentle for that sensitive area. You can apply concealer after and it looks decent (obviously is not the same as applying a primer ) What I really dislike is the presentation, it comes in a small jar ( 15 ml or 30 ml) which for me is the most inconvenient presentation for skincare products because it can easily contaminate and it takes more tome to apply. But everyone has their preferences. So far I don’t think I will be buying it again when I finish this bottle so I would love to read some recommendations for eye creams or your experience with this ones🍀
