HELP MY MOM OUT! Mature Skincare Suggestions?
Hi friends! I need your help to develop an ANTI AGING SKINCARE ROUTINE for my mom! She turns 60 years old in March.. Is a retinol newbie...She just started using OLAY - Regenerist Retinol24 Night Moisturizerin December and says she likes the way it makes her skin feel and she is not experiencing any sensitivity. She is particularly concerned about her EYES She generally does not have very sensitive skin, but she doesnt like heavy fragrances either. WHAT DOES SHE NEED? I don’t know much about anti aging but I’m considering these products based on popularity and what she already has... opinions or any other suggestions? She is willing to pay for more expensive things if they work better! What is her routine still missing? Cleanser: ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm Acids: colorescience - AHA/BHA Exfolitaing Cleanser by SkinMedica Serum: CLARINS - Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate Eye Creams: Day: LANCÔME - Génifique Yeux Youth Activating Eye Cream Night: Murad - Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum Moisturizer: Day: OLE HENRIKSEN - C-Rush Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer Night: OLAY - Regenerist Retinol24 Night Moisturizer Oil: Jurlique - Age-Defying Firming Face Oil I WANT HER TO HAVE THE BEST OF THE BEST PRODUCTS!!!

That texture is just *chef’s kiss*
🍊 Let’s talk 𝐌𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐫𝐬! 🍊 I haven’t posted about moisturizers much, but I promise I use them! I have way too many open right now actually 🙈 𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭? This is the OLE HENRIKSEN - C-Rush Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer. Their website describes it like so: “This innovative, peachy-tinted gel crème instantly illuminates and delivers an energizing burst of 24-hour hydration. It targets fine lines and wrinkles, renews youthful radiance and firms skin—but that’s not all. C-Rush Brightening Gel Crème even improves makeup application, creating a smooth, hydrated canvas for foundation.” 𝐊𝐞𝐲 𝐈𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬: •𝟹 𝘴𝘰𝘶𝘳𝘤𝘦𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘷𝘪𝘵𝘢𝘮𝘪𝘯 𝘊: For addressing visible signs of aging •𝘙𝘰𝘴𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘞𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘳 𝘦𝘹𝘵𝘳𝘢𝘤𝘵: Rich in antioxidants to help nourish and condition skin 𝐌𝐲 𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐬: This stuff smells AMAZING! I don’t always love strong-smelling products but this smells like summer & orange creamsicles and sometimes I literally open the jar just to smell it 😏 I find this cream very hydrating but still lightweight. I’d say it’s a perfect summer moisturizer, though my husband keeps stealing it lately so it may not last me til then! 𝐕𝐚𝐥𝐮𝐞: I got this in a Vitamin C kit because I was really wanting to try the Truth serum & the highly regarded Banana Bright Eye Cream. The kit was $40, and is an insanely good value. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to try this line of products! 𝘞𝘩𝘢𝘵’𝘴 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘧𝘢𝘷𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘵𝘦 𝘮𝘰𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘶𝘳𝘪𝘻𝘦𝘳?? #CherieCreator
Thank you @triderma for letting me try more products from your collection 🥰 𝐀𝐥𝐥 𝐂𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐫 𝐌𝐮𝐥𝐭𝐢-𝐏𝐮𝐫𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐞 𝐀𝐥𝐨𝐞 𝐆𝐞𝐥 ~ love this! This uniquely functions as a gentle makeup remover (yes, and it does well), hydrator and an after-shave gel. I have been a long time fan of aloe but transitioning to #fragrancefree, it has been a challenge to find one that’s formulated free of fragrance and alcohol. I’m glad Triderma usually leaves those ingredients out! With that said, this isn’t as extremely cooling as other aloe gels but it still is very hydrating and does the job, just the gentler way! It’s made out of 5 ingredients only 👍🏻 𝐎𝐢𝐥-𝐅𝐫𝐞𝐞 𝐌𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐫 ~ adding to my no-nonsense moisturizer list! Enjoyed this. Has aloe, green tea and mushroom stem extract - you can never go wrong with it. It is lightweight and works well in sealing moisture. Does not feel heavy at all- it’s ideal for oily skin! The texture and the “feel” of it reminds me so much for the Cerave moisturizing lotion (the one in blue/white tube). However this has a strong chemical and natural smell on it (?) - if you don’t really mind it then this is another good option for you 😉 Check out more of their expert-formulated products at triderma.com 🖥
The Floral Hydro Eye Gel Cream This is a watery gel cream infused with narcissus bulb extract and Hyaluronic acid. It’s very light and clearly a gel. I love so many Mamonde products and was really excited to love this one too... but it didn’t really work out for me. ☁️ The fragrance was too strong and being an eye cream this was a deal breaker. ☁️I also wanted this to absorb quicker but it stayed in a gel-like state for a while. ☁️I had issues with my contacts the next morning. . I tried this eye cream 4 times and I think it’s safe to say it really isn’t meant for me. I think I will stick with the rose line from Mamonde and pass on this one.
Mamonde-Floral Hydro Eye Gel Cream
Super Hydrating Eye Gel Cream 💙💦
A few weeks ago I had reviewed the Floral Hydro Cream so I was happy when Mamonde gifted me their Floral Hydro Eye Gel Cream to go with it! Just like the face cream, this ultra lightweight gel formula seeps into the skin like water and leaves your under eyes hydrated all day. I have combination skin, mostly oil with some dry patches, and my under eyes have always been an area that is more on the dry side. Concealer doesn’t look good on top of dry under eyes; I don’t care what hydrating concealer you’re using, so it’s important to keep them hydrated and nourished with a cream at night. Plus I find that I wake up looking more refreshed, even if I only did get 3-4 hours of sleep! 🤣 Formulated with Water-Cycle technology, it allows the cream to replenish the eye area rapidly, provide intense moisture delivery, and lock in that moisture. 💦 Mamonde - Floral Hydro Eye Gel Cream

Marc Jacobs Beauty Youthquake in action
Loving this moisturizer so far. It’s not only super hydrating (which I need now that the weather is getting colder), but it also helps to mildly exfoliate and brighten the skin. It wears great under makeup and is so soft on the skin. It can be a liiiittle greasy if you apply a lot, but thankfully a little goes a long way and you don’t need that much to evenly cover your face. If you’re thinking about trying it I’d opt for the $21 mini size first to test it out! MARC JACOBS BEAUTY - Youthquake Hydra-full Retexturizing Gel Crème Moisturizer

EMPTY C-TANGO🧡 When you pump-pump-pump and nothing comes out—- before you have a mini panic attack, open it up! I love to use every single drop of my favorite skincare products! My rule: no drunkelephant left behind! While I’m sad I’m at the end of this gorgeous eye cream and the bright & tight ride we had, I have been turning to a different DE product that has surprised me... Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil is a cornerstone product for Drunk Elephant. It’s the product that inspired the name of the brand. For many years I’d missed the point. I tried it, I compared it to other marula oils from different brands and it didn’t stand out as special to me. Recently— I had an allergic reaction around my eyes. I’m talking about dry, flaky, itchy, inflamed and angry. Nothing seemed to help. Even the most gentle products burned. Until I reached for VMO. It’s a slightly thicker oil and as soon as I put it on it stayed in place and absorbed into my skin. I can’t tell you what a relief it was to have this oil on hand, use it and feel instant the itching subside. My rash has cleared up yet I still use it nightly, especially around my eyes. Virgin Marula Oil has a cult following and all for good reason. I feel like I actually get it now. I had an Oprah style aha! moment ✨
Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream
Unfortunately this product and I are not a match 😔 I used this eye cream for a few months and noticed no difference except for the 5 minutes of hydration after I first apply it. Once those 5 minutes are up it’s as if I never applied the product. I don’t expect eye creams to change my life, but this didn’t even keep my under eye area hydrated. I really wanted to like the product because I’ve heard others rave about it, but sadly it didn’t work out for me.
