💰💰The Most Expensive=The Best? My Answer is....

Should we use eye cream every day? YES! It's absolutely necessary! The skin around our eyes is more fragile, dries up, and develops lines and wrinkles easily, so it's essential to use an eye cream as early as possible. I'd advise not to use your facial cream as an eye cream because although they both contain fat and emulsifier, the skin around our eyes is thinner with less fat, so it requires better moisturizing but more lightweight ingredients such as squalane and jojoba oil. Facial cream CAN'T replace eye cream! I have no eye wrinkles and the skin around my eyes is not sensitive but I do have dark marks in the outer corners of my eyes. I want my eye products to be anti-aging and moisturizing. Here are 3 products I've tried. ESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex Synchronized Recovery
-0.5 oz. for $64.00 It has a light brown, lightweight gel texture and it works very well, which can be easily absorbed.The gel didn't make my under eyes puffy(er) from using. It is moisturizing and made my under eye area smoother. I will continue to use it as my go to nightly eye treatment. The latest version claims to prevent the impact of blue light but I think it's hard to find the visible effect. LA MER - The Eye Concentrate
- 0.5 oz. for $235.00 It has a light green, lightweight, and creamy texture. It contains a lot of ingredients such as niacinamide, niacin, and others, so it is also considered a very versatile eye cream. It works well in reducing fine lines, puffy eyes, dark circles, and eye bags. The attached massage stick helps to improve absorption.  After several days, I found the lines are less and the eye area is soft and no longer dry. However, for the price, I thought it could work miracle... I took 1 star off cuz the price is tooooooooo steep! I will just go back to searching for a Holy Grail that's more affordable.  Then I found this one!!!👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 ELEMIS - Peptide 4 Eye Recovery Cream
- 0.5 oz. for $49.00 This scent-free ELEMIS amino acid peptide anti-aging eye cream is not only moisturizing, but it also works magic on anti-aging.It has a white, lightweight and creamy texture suitable for summer use and it's very worth its price. I love both of these things about this product.It is moisturizing, skin-firming and improves dark circles.  It goes on smooth and glides across skin. The eye area looks healthier and more plump only after a week of use. I'll give it 5/5! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

I just realized that I have been living on Shiseido’s minis lol. I finally figured that SHISEIDO - Ultimune Eye Power Infusing Eye Concentrate is an eye serum rather than cream. So I layered with other eye creams.

Every penny you spent is worth it!
If you looking to reduce bags and/or wrinkles this one is a miracle cream! ESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex Synchronized Recovery After not seeing any glow using Olay product for years, I happened to try the Estee Lauder line. I first received this product in a gift package 2 years ago. I used it occasionally, really only when I saw the beginning signs of the dreaded “eleven” symbol between the eyes. I don’t want to sound like a skincare sales ad, but honestly, this one was almost instant, by the 2nd day of using Estee Lauder my under-eye puffiness was gone. There is no scent, didn't leave my eyes itchy or burning in the a.m. I dab a little under each eye before bed. It's a little pricey but so worth it. Within a month, the dark circles start to fade from the outer part of the under-eye. in about a month and a half puffiness was greatly reduced. In 2 months, I'm no longer using foundation. within 5 months I look so good I almost forgot why I bought it(but I'm not making that mistake again). Good results and preservation. It does what it says. I always noticed the customers at the Estee Lauder counter in the dept store always looked very good - duh!!! You may think EL is costly, but you use such a 'tiny' amount of product the product lasts for months. So, in the end, I spend less than Olay days and look killer better. Liked the effects of this and so I started using the entire line (daytime perfectionist serum +++++++) along with the moisturizers. Switched my base from Clinique over to their Double Wear foundation also. All makeup now Estee Lauder (concealer, etc), I haven't looked at this refreshed in years!!! Took 3 years off and glow!

Eye Recovery/Results Visible
I always loved the products I have by Elemis so when I received this one at the QVC Beauty Bash I was very excited. This eye recovery cream has really helped to transform my eyes. I am prone to dark shadows and definitely notice an improvement. My eyes appear brighter and well rested. The peptide 4 cream replenishes the lost moisture and improves hydration which leaves the skin firmer. I’m in my 50’s so loss of elasticity is a major concern of mine This cream contains coconut and jojoba oils and is good for all skin types. It is safe to us am and pm and only a pea size is necessary so although it is pricey it’ll last a long time. Make sure to be gentle around the eye contour and to use your ring finger when applying products. I was lucky enough to receive mine as a goody bag gift but you can find this product for $50 at QVC. Com or purchase it directly from Elemis. I highly recommend you try this and see improvement in fine lines and wrinkles as well as brightness. Another ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️’s from me for Elemis Eye Recovery Cream.

✨EYE CREAM✨ ELEMIS Peptide⁴ Eye Recovery Cream
The function of this eye cream from Elemis is to help reduce the appearance of dark circles, and reduce puffiness under eyes. It accomplishes these claims by using ingredients like Hawkweed and Daisy extracts to help brighten the under eye area and Night Scented Stock Flower extract to give a more smooth and plump appearance. The texture is very creamy and melts beautifully into your skin. It has a very light herbal scent that fades quickly. It’s formulated without parabens, artificial colors, mineral oils, or synthetic antioxidants. I purchased this product to help with my tired looking eyes from lack of sleep. I’ve used it for about a month now and I have noticed a dramatic change in the appearance of my under eye skin. It is smoother and brighter. I like this eye cream and I would recommend it for anyone looking to brighten and smooth their under eye skin. It think it’s a midrange price at $49. For an eye cream that actually works I think it’s worth it. ELEMIS - Peptide 4 Eye Recovery Cream

💰MY LA MER HAUL: Splurge or Save?
Work so hard every night and day just to spend on a ton of La Mer goodies. Here’s my Christmas La Mer haul. It is expensive for sure but is it worth it? It’s been debated since like land before time. Does expensive really mean it’s better? Below, I provide some more alternatives for the same effect. LA MER - LA MER Moisturizing Cream The original moisturizing cream is thick. When you buy one of these, you must practice the La Mer ritual. Warm the pea sized cream in your hands and between your fingers then press onto your skin to apply. Since this cream is thick it feels like it stays on all day but I still couldn’t get over the thickness of it. After finishing the jar, I changed to the moisturizing soft cream. LA MER - LA MER The Moisturizing Soft Cream The moisturizing soft cream is lighter and has a weightless feel to it. It’s ready to apply without warming it with your hands or fingers and directly press onto your skin. I love the texture of this moisturizer because of how soft it is but it’s not that moisturizing to the point where I’d rebuy. In fact, I threw mine away and opted for TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream LA MER - LA MER The Powder I bought this finishing powder and pre-pandemic, I tried this on at the store and it looked super smooth. As always, I try to strive for a poreless look and it really felt like it gave that but it’s $95! I bought it anyway 🤦‍♀️ You could spend less for the same effect but I did feel bougie putting it on. I now use KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Lock-It Setting Powder Just use a powder brush and dust all over. I wouldn’t rebuy this at all. LA MER - LA MER The Body Crème I don’t love it. It’s a body cream that works and I’ve rebought this thinking it’s doing wonders for my body’s skin until I tried whipped argan oil like I can’t believe that shit ain’t butter and WOW. The La Mer Body Crème for $285 vs $36 JOSIE MARAN - Whipped Argan Oil Illuminizing Body Butter Save your $$$ money cash. I’ll be writing a review for the rest of the items soon! Standby or follow for Part 2 of my LA MER haul and thanks for reading. 😍

You Can Always Find Your Eye Product Regardless Of Your Budget😋😋
I'm over 25 years old and the four eye creams below are the eye creams I use most often, some affordable, some luxurious. I have thin, quite sensitive skin with occasional puffy eyes, fine lines around my eyes, and dark circles under them. 1) la prairie - Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Cream (Luxury brand) After scooping it out and dabbing it around my eyes with my fingers, the cream and oil separated, and it was also extremely difficult to dab and spread, so I could only smear it on. The accompanying silver spatula also felt quite useless. In short, after using it for quite a while, it did nothing much for me. Neither my fine lines nor my dark circles were reduced, so it's definitely not worth the price. 2) LA MER - The Eye Concentrate(Luxury brand) La Prairie and La Mer are neck and neck in terms of their reputation and price but La Mer The Eye Concentrate is way more suitable for my skin. It neither has a thick and heavy texture nor is it greasy, and it spreads and absorbs very easily. It's very nourishing and moisturizing to the touch and it doesn't leave my skin sticky. I've just bought it recently so I've yet to see its results, but it's said to be a superstar in reducing fine lines and dark circles. Another thing worth mentioning is the accompanying spatula, a green handle with silver ball, which is used to gently massage the eye cream onto the skin. Cooling and comfortable on the skin, it helps with eye cream absorption, and I hope that I can see results after using it for a longer period. 3) Kiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado(Affordable brand) It is quite moisturizing but spreads less easily compared to La Mer. It needs to be emulsified between your fingers until it feels more watery before it's applied, or else it can't be properly absorbed! Gently dab from the outer to the inner corners of your eyes after it's the right texture. It does nothing much for me, maybe because it's no longer suitable for my skin age, and it might be more helpful for new fine lines. 4) ORIGINS - GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff (Affordable brand) This eye cream is moisturizing and lightweight, which is how I prefer eye creams to be, and it also spreads very easily. The cream itself is a little shimmery and it's said to brighten the skin around the eye area, especially for dark circles. It does nothing much for me, but it feels nicer on the skin and is absorbed more easily compared with Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado. It's better to test eye creams yourself instead of just focusing on the skincare brand and following reviews, especially considering how age-sensitive eye creams are.  What's your favorite eye cream?🤩

Honestly, I Wasted $280 On Eye Products👎👎👎
Honestly, I Wasted $280 On Eye Products👎👎👎
I have dry skin. Anti-aging is important to me. I have wrinkles under my eyes. I bought two eye care products. They are very expensive, so I expected them to be good. However, here is what happened.  CHANTECAILLE - Stress Repair Concentrate+ Eye Cream I've always loved using Chantecaille anti-aging skincare products and I've used a lot of their masks and facial creams. However, no matter how much a brand is raved about, there will be products from the brand that are bombs. In this case, it is their Stress Repair Concentrate+. This eye cream is really greasy and not moisturizing, leaving an oily shine on the skin around my eyes. It even balled up when I first applied it, so as a luxurious eye cream, it gets an 'F' for the user experience it offers. It doesn't offer results as obvious as the same series facial cream. Since it can't be easily absorbed, it's not really moisturizing and I felt that there was nothing special about it even after finishing the whole bottle. There are many more eye creams in the same price range which offer better results and user experience. VERSO - Skincare Super Eye Serum The second bomb for me is Verso's No. 5 Super Eye Serum, the main ingredient of which is Retinol 8. 30ml is more than enough for an eye serum, but unfortunately, I didn't finish using it. It has a lotion texture, is easily absorbed, and can be used as a serum primer, but it's really brutal on the skin. It literally burned the skin around my eyes when first applied, and even after switching to using it once every two days for one month, it still irritated a lot. I decided to give it up and announce that I'm just 8 times retinol intolerant. What eye cream or eye serum do you use? Help me find some good anti-aging eye products!❤❤

La Mer Eye Cream: is it worth
La Mer Eye Cream: is it worth the 💵?? ……………………………………………………………………………………..... Both of these eye creams come w/ a silver-tipped applicator intended to help improve circulation around the eyes for a brightening effect - I keep mine in the refrigerator b/c I feel like this helps to de-puff around my eyes, which is my main eye skincare concern. ………………………………………………………………………………………… •Eye Balm Intense: hydrating balm intended to reduce eye puffiness (via Marine De-Puff Ferment…. better believe I’m about to be doing some research on this) & smooth/soften lines/wrinkles (via Miracle Broth, an elixir unique to La Mer products designed to moisturize, regenerate, soothe, smooth & enhance radiance). I prefer this (vs. the concentrate) b/c I’m constantly in search of the best product to help with my under-eye puffiness (which is out of control most mornings)… it is my holy grail eye cream: I apply it before bed & in the morning & I seriously don’t notice any puffiness in the mornings after bedtime use. It also is super hydrating & smoothes the skin around my eyes. If I could afford to use this every day I would (in reality my use is limited to around my birthday & Christmas - thank you to awesome parents 🤗🙌🏻) . •Eye Concentrate: hydrating cream intended to diminish dark circles (via a magnetically-charged iron-rich mineral called Hematite…. hmmm, adding this to my research list) & smooth/soften lines/wrinkles (via Miracle Broth, same as w/ the balm). Dark circles are not one of my major concerns so I don’t feel like I can truthfully comment on this effect-but it also moisturizes & smoothes around my eyes similar to the balm.

My skin concerns: a small fine line on the skin around my lower right eye. I have neither allergic skin nor dark circles. 😏😏 Share with you some of the eye creams I have used: 1. Sisley Sisleya Eye and Lip Contour Cream Main Effects: Anti-aging, moisturizing, and reducing dark circles The texture is thicker than ordinary eye cream. Before applying, you can massage the area around the eyes first with the massage stick that comes with it, then apply an appropriate amount on the skin. It moisturizes the skin very well. You can also gently dab the skin to help it absorb faster. The product effectively reduces dark circles and fine lines. 👍🏻👍🏻 2. ESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex Synchronized Recovery Main Effects: Anti-aging, moisturizing, and anti-blue light The light brown gel-like cream is refreshing, moisturizing, and easily absorbed into the skin. Dip a small amount on your fingertips then dab on to the eye area until it is completely absorbed. 🤗🤗 3. ESTĒE LAUDER - DayWear Eye Cooling Anti-Oxidant Moisture GelCreme Main Effects: Hydrating and moisturizing It has a very refreshing gel texture, and is also very easily absorbed. This product is suitable for people without severe eye skin problems as a daily eye moisturizer.☝🏻☝🏻 4. LA MER - The Eye Concentrate Main Effects: Repairing and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, and reducing dark circles This lotion is refreshing and it's also absorbed quickly. It is good for repairing and moisturizing damaged skin and fine lines around the eyes. However, it doesn't work for reducing dark circles. 💔💔 5.  Guerlain Abeille Royale Replenishing Eye Cream Main Effects: Moisturizing, soothing, reducing fine lines, and anti-aging I love it! It has a relatively thicker texture, super moisturizing, and it is also very easily absorbed. It is good for reducing fine lines and soothing the eye area. You can use it with the Sisley massage stick.

Save or Splurge?Which One Should I Choose for Summer! 💓💓💓
I have combo-oily skin. I want my eye products to be anti-aging and moisturizing,  but not so heavy for summer use. belif - Eye Bomb Gwp$48.00 for 25ml It is a super nourishing and easily absorbed moisturizing eye cream with a lightweight and water-gel like texture, spreads easily, and is absorbed really easily. It is more suitable for younger skin. I can't see its effects on anti-aging. LANCÔME - Génifique Yeux Youth Activating Eye Cream $67.00 for 15ml It has a white, creamy and lightweight texture and is easily absorbe too. Its core ingredient is yeast and its main focus is on reducing dark circles. It is considered an essence eye cream and it's really moisturizing and moisturizing as a pre-essence before applying makeup..It works well in reducing dark circles, eye wrinkles, fine lines, and puffy eyes. If you have no idea which one you'd choose, try it! AMOREPACIFIC - Time Response Eye Reserve Crème$260.00 for 15ml AMOREPACIFIC is a Korean brand which has just entered the US market. Its texture is very lightweight and moisturizing with main ingredient is bamboo sap, a must for summer!!! It works well in reducing fine lines and anti-aging but I really don't like the scent. The other downside is that the price is quite steep.  CLINIQUE - Pep-Start Eye Cream$27.50 for 15ml This is a scent-free average eye cream which is non-greasy, refreshing, and easily absorbed. It's great for both winter and summer use and is one of the best drugstore eye creams I've tried. You can use the eye cream tip to massage around your eyes.It has a white, creamy, and buttery texture.It keeps the skin hydrated, but you can't expect too much on reducing fine lines. Have you tried these brands before? Let me know 🥰

Drawing A Line Under Tired Eyes
Drawing A Line Under Tired Eyes
Our eyes are the first part of the fact to show signs of ageing in men and women.  I tend to work long hours and, I find that early starts and late nights take their toll on my eyes in the form of fine lines, puffiness and, ugly dark circles.  As getting more sleep isn’t really an option for me, I’ve spent a huge amount of time and money over the years to find an eyecare product which can zap away wrinkles and dark circles without making my oily skin look and feel greasy.  A few months ago, a friend recommended that I try CLINIQUE - All About Eyes Rich Eye Cream which promised to do all of this as well as leaving the skin around my eyes radiant.  As a bonus, the packaging states that this cream can also be used as a make-up primer, making it well worth the reasonable price tag.  Did it deliver? Clinique All About Eyes contains a whole shopping list of ingredients including Cyclopentasiloxane, Water, Isostearyl Palmitate, Glycol, Polysilicone-11, caffeine and lactis protein.  Aimed at those aged 30+, this cream is suitable for all skin types - so, good news for my oily skin!  Fragrance free, the texture of this cream is a cross between a medium-thick cream and a gel and, absorbs easily into the skin without any greasiness.  Application is quick and easy and, you only need to use a tiny amount on each eye.  The Verdict I used Clinique All About Eyes for one week, morning and night and, here’s what I found:  After just a couple of days, I noticed that there was a visible improvement in the shadows under my eyes in that the dark circles were almost gone and, my eyes looked visibly fresher.  Over the course of seven days, although the wrinkles around my eyes weren’t removed completely, there was a definite softening of their appearance.  Finally, I can confirm that Clinique All About Eyes delivered on its promise that this cream can be used as a make-up primer - and an excellent one at that!  I will definitely be buying this cream on a regular basis and, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to my friends - new and old!
