We all know that retinol is a fantastic skincare ingredient for anti-aging. Most dermatologist are advising to start using retinol when you are younger. Because what retinol does is to help cells turnover and premature aging including fine lines and wrinkles. At the sametimes it is promoting rapid cell renewal. It is really important to do your research before undergoing retinol treatment. Known fact that the eyelids skin is the thinest skin in the body. Many may have the concern that Is it safe to use around eyes? I do read somewhere about retinol saying that it thinned the skin. Although this is not necessarily true, we still gonna be careful when using retinol around eye. I love the fact that retinol help to fight the signs of aging improves uneven skin texture. I am 26 years old. Have some early signs of aging mainly around my eye area. I have some fine lines under eye and wrinkles. So I am always looking for a product I like this retinol eye cream fromLA ROCHE-POSAY - Redermic R Retionl Eye Cream
When I first started using it, I noticed a difference just two days after use! I use it twice daily, in the morning and night.It doesn't irritate my skin or eyes at all. SHISEIDO - Bio Performance Glow Revival Eye Treatment
This one is my new purchase. My dermatologist recommended this to me. It has higher retinol concentration and many other great ingredients added. This retinol eye cream said to increases collagen and feels like thinning because the epidermal layer is sloughing off. Honestly I love both. With the luxury eye cream. I feel like it is more light weighted and easier to be absobed. It is also more moisturized than the drugstore one. The price of this product is really friendly as well, especially considering the concentration of amazing ingredients! I give both 5 stars.

Tired sensitive skin to lively glowing skin
I have sensitive skin (her red and irritated by May products, heat, etc). So I started using Acure’s soothing line. Immediately I noticed my skin didn’t sting and didn’t get red. Score! (And the price was reasonable: $12-19 depending on the product). The blue tansy night oil smells amd feels amazing. Once that helped my sensitivity I decided that since I was going to be in my mid thirties soon, I better get a good retinoid. So I was going to see a dermatologist, but then I saw that I could see a derm online and get a custom made product just for me: I’m on a low dose of .03% tretinoin with hyaluronic acid . I’ve using it for three months as prescribed (had to put it on every two-three nights to make sure my skin adjusted) Now I do it every day or every other day. Also, my derm dr placed vitamin c on my regimen so I went to an Acure product because I love them and it had ferulic acid as well as vitamin c, something. I learned about form someone here! I randomly got excited about the custom aspect of Atolla so I got some. I’ve only been using it for a month so I’m not sure yet. But it feels nice! No sensitivity issues, but it might just be an extra I don’t really need. I’m very happy with my progress!

My First Retinol Eye Cream 👏🏻
My First Retinol Eye Cream 👏🏻
Today, I'm here to share with you an eye cream which I love to use recently- enriched wrinkle cream from ELIXIR. Actually, it’s not an eye cream, but a wrinkle cream that can be used on eyes, forehead and other areas where fine lines appear. For me, I prefer to use it as an eye cream. This product contains retinol, and claims to be effective in moisturizing and improving wrinkles. I am 25+, and my eyes have not yet seen any fine lines. My main appeal is to keep the eyes moisturized and prevent the appearance of eye aging and fine lines in advance. Although I have used some retinol face creams, this is my first time to use eye cream that containing retinol. Because the skin of the eye area is more delicate and sensitive, I was a little worried at first whether this eye cream will irritate my eye. However, I did not feel the slight tingling sensation that would occur as using other acid products, just a warm feeling. So far, I have been using it for two weeks now, and there is no side effects such as irritation or redness. On the contrary, It's really nourishing. Its texture is like pale yellow lotion. It’s very moisturizing and easy to blend. Gently massage it for about 30 seconds, then it will be well absorbed without any greasy feeling. I can't comment on its anti-wrinkle effects because I've been using it for a short time and I don't have any fine lines around my eyes. But it's really moisturizing, and I feel the skin around my eyes seems to be plumping up. As my first retinol eye cream, I’ml very satisfied with it~ Finally, although I used this retinol eye cream without any irritation or discomfort, it is not recommended for people with sensitive skin to try it.

Enriched Wrinkle Cream
ELIXIR-Enriched Wrinkle Cream
I received this product for fr
I received this product for free through Cherie. I must say, this is one of the best hydrated creams and it is really light. I love how I take this cream and it drenches into the skin immediately, completely melts within seconds!! My skin just absorbs it in. It is soft and buttery and is best for fine lines and wrinkles, and best for dry skin. I would so recommend anyone to try this as this has become my most favorite after using the philosophy lotion (which I was using for my very dry skin before this)

My skin type is combination dry skin. I care more about my eyes problem after 25-year-old. Especially when I laugh or just smile, lots of fine lines will appear. I am going to share three eye creams, L’OREAL revitalift filler, Lancome advanced genifique yeux and Filorga optim-eyes. 1. L’OREAL, 13 pounds bought from boots in UK, 30ml L'ORÉAL - Revitalift Filler Renew Eye Texture: white cream, not greasy and suitable for all skin types Ingredient: Hyaluronic acid + bosein Scent: none This is the cheapest one among three of eye creams. I gave up after two weeks because I did not see any effect. The only advantage is the comfortable feeling when apply around the eyes. If you hope it can bring the effect like the advertisement said, it is day dreaming! In addition, try to avoid using in the morning before make up, it will cause eye shadow to be colorless. 2. Lancome, $67, 15ml LANCÔME - Advanced Génifique Eye Cream Texture: Cream,easy to absorb, suitable for oily skin Ingredient: yeast extract Scent: heavy flavor This product is more suitable for people who often stay up late, because its main effect is to fade the dark circles. I've been using it for nearly six months and I feel pretty good. Sometimes my eyes have a little puffy in the morning, the puffiness will gradually disappear after applying one hour later. However, it should be noted that this product contains denatured ethanol, that is alcohol. Sensitive skin must be very careful to use. Otherwise, it will cause eye irritation. 3. FILORGA, $49, 15ml FILORGA - Optim-Eyes Eye Contour Cream (0.5oz) Texture: translucent gel Ingredient: Amino acids and peptides Scent: fresh and floral I've run out of one 15ml bottle for about half a year. I did not see the effect of it on lightening the dark circles and dry lines, but it's very moisturizing, very suitable for autumn and winter. As a basic eye cream, it's enough. Another advantage of this product is that I like the packaging very much! When we use it, only need to rotate once, there will be a press head, which is clean and convenient to use. In fact, eye cream can effectively fade the dark circles is not convincing for me. Going to bed early is the most effective way! Among three of them, Lancome has some effect of reducing fine lines and Filorga can relieve eye tension.

Moisturizer or Cream: Highly Recommended
Moisturizer or Cream: Highly Recommended
The L’Oréal’s “Collagen Daily Moisturizer” is one of the creams that I rotate and implement as my daily 3rd step. What is Collagen?: It is naturally produced in our body that keeps our skin youthful. But with age, exposure from sun, and poor diet -collagen and moisture levels decrease causing aging effects like wrinkles, lines, dehydration, and less glowing skin. What Will This Product Do for Me?: It will restore collagen, the skin’s cushion, while smoothing wrinkles. The natural collagen in this product is extracted and purified with a process that preserves all our skin’s hydrating qualities. It’s is inspired by dermatological collagen treatments that provides daily hydration to fill in lines and wrinkles . Extra Benefits: It is lightweight, non-greasy, non-comedogenic, and dermatologist tested.

Anti-aging is never too early! ‍
Anti-aging is never too early! ‍
I didn’t pay attention to skin aging until I found a few lines and wrinkles under my eyes. I was emboldened because I think aging issues are not my concern as I’m only 20 years old. The truth is, anti-aging is never too early to start! You can start by using some basic products and gradually shift to deluxe ones as your age grows. I bought KIEHL’S Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado first, after a few weeks I didn’t see much difference, so I purchased another eye cream from ESTĒE LAUDER, the Ultimate Lift Regeneration Youth Eye Creme. The avocado eye cream from KIEHL’S is my very first eye cream. Just like its name, it’s got the creamy texture like the well-mashed avocado cream, and it pleases you with the fresh healing colour. It’s neither too thick nor not light, relatively easy to be blended out. This is a good choice for young ladies as a beginning early-aging product because it does help you with hydration. This might help as a prevention of wrinkles; however, it is not effective in wrinkle removal. So I shifted to the Ultimate Lift Regeneration Eye Cream by ESTĒE LAUDER. The price of this one is much higher and aiming at customers in higher age groups. Compared to KIEHL’S eye cream, this product is much more effective. After several weeks I was able to notice the change! Not only it lifts your skin and reduce wrinkles, it also lightens your complexion around eye-area. Meanwhile, this product successfully formulates the concentrated nutrition into a very lightweight texture, gives you a fresh finish. Oh and I love the fragrance so much!! The price is the only imperfection, but you will need just one product to really improve your skin conditions.Kiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado ESTĒE LAUDER - RE-NUTRIV Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Eye Creme

Dark circles? Fine lines? 👁
Dark circles? Fine lines? 👁
I have combination skin, acne prone and I have dark circles and some fine lines around the eyes. Dark circles have been my main problem since I was about 24 years old, the lack of sleep made them worse and since then I have been looking for effective ways to reduce them. Fine lines have appeared over the years and that is why I try to keep my eye area well hydrated. sesderma - C-VIT Eye Contour Cream $36 My dermatologist gave me some samples and I loved it! Its a very lightweight cream that absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave sticky, has a subtle orange smell. It is the one with which I have noticed most changes in the coloration of dark circles, in addition to hydrating and helping to reduce wrinkles. FILORGA - Optim-Eyes Eye Contour Cream (0.5oz) $49 I had samples of this eye cream and I liked it. It has a light texture, which is easily absorbed and also helps to reduce the pigmentation of dark circles and wrinkles around the eyes. I've also had good results, it's a little more expensive than Sesderma's, but I still think it's worth it. It has a floral aroma, and it is also another cream that has given me good results. Tips: Use sun protection. The eye area is the most prone to sun damage, wear sunglasses and sunscreen, those with zinc oxide generally don’t irritate the eyes. Be gentle when cleaning and applying serum and moisturizer, rubbing can cause wrinkles or or worsen the signs of aging. Always remove all makeup before bed. Get a good night sleep. Hydrate well. Don’t apply products that have oil, they can clog the glands around the eyes. Use a good moisturizer cream. Limit salt intake and add antioxidants to help reduce inflammation.
