My skincare (normal to oily sensitive skin)
My current routine! I have ups & downs & some I want to improve but this is what it’s currently at! Not pictured: TATCHA - Calming Foaming Enzyme Powder Absolutely love! Was going back & forth between this version & the one for oily skin but this one is juuuuuust right for my picky skin!! Pictured: (in order of use) TATCHA - The Essence Plumping Skin Softener Omg-it’s a game changer! This stuff may just look like fancy water (lol who am I kidding-I use evian - Brumisateur Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray so yeah-THATS fancy water but I love it! lol) but this stuff is 100% the real deal! I’ve noticed that products glide one & I don’t have as much of the shiny effect after putting on my skincare routine! Yay! DRUNK ELEPHANT - Shaba Complex Firming Eye Serum Ok so warning on this one-you’ll never use a full pump unless you share with 2 other people at the same time-this pump is stupid-I hate it but the product so far has done a good job & hasn’t made me run to go find a new one right away-could it be improved...? Yeah-but it’s a good option for me for now 😊 also-I don’t like using this by itself cuz it’s drying... so for a fix to that I added.... DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream One again-you don’t need a full pump unless you’re sharing-no one has that much surface area to cover with this...ugh. This is the step that was missing when I just was using the firming serum-this is hydrating & goes after because it’s thicker. The combo works for me. Would I rather have 1 product? Yes. Would I rather have a better pump that doesn’t portion out share sizes of product? Yes.... am I rushing to Sephora to find a new one? Ha! No.... Curology - Curology formula My 2 cents on those people who hate this? It’s not for you & that’s ok! But dang does this work for me!! It’s a must have!! Love it!! -or- never and DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum I haven’t used this enough to rate but this is supposedly suppose to help with dark spots & pores? We shall see tester size...we shall see... TATCHA - The Water Cream Omg moisture heaven! Smells like a spa, glides on like a dream AND has gold in it? Sign me up! This stuff is amazing-I love it & it does wonders for me! Add ons! TATCHA - THE SERUM STICK Not in love-good for dry spots or singular areas every once in a while but meh-not worth it & not a fave of mine. TATCHA - Luminous Dewy Skin Mist Also-not in love. Is it nice when I’m dried out? Yeah! Does it last? Nooooot really? Meh-I have it I’ll use it & I won’t buy again... TATCHA - Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 35 PA+++ Meh-this is just....meh. Again will use it up & not rebuy....
The Trunk 4.0🎪🐘
🎪DRUNK ELEPHANT - The Trunk 4.0 This kit comes fully stocked with everything you need for a truly complete skincare routine & a swift getaway! 🛩☁️ I wouldn’t travel right now, even if you paid me. Covid numbers aren’t going down & I take these facts very seriously. Haven’t had contact with almost anyone since March, because I do have a neurological disease that could put me at risk. I can’t tell anyone what to do... but do I urge you to consciously protect strangers while protecting yourself & your loved ones. My condition is one often referred to as an “Invisible Illness”. Many people have health conditions that others don’t outrightly see. Most people think I’m completely able-bodied unless I’m seen limping or having convulsions. I’ve only had this condition since 2014, so it’s been an adjustment & learning experience for my own prejudgements as well. 🧳My bf really likes the Monos locking suitcase & encouraged me to purchase this while the big Sephora sale was going on. He has to travel for his essential-work sometimes & this is a perfect carry-on size! It’s just as wide & deep as the ‘Monos Carry-On’ ($293) & only 4” shorter. specs: 18” high x 14” wide x 9” deep. Monos describes their Carry-On as: Designed to comply with the size restrictions of as many airlines as possible, & fits in the overhead bin of nearly any flight. So I think this slightly shorter rolling suitcase would 99% likely be accepted as a carry-on. 💚Really impressed with the quality! Its lightweight but well structured, great features/compartments + an antibacterial laundry bag. I’m totally new to Drunk Elephant, but I wanted to try their L-Ascorbic Acid serum, Glycolic Acid serum & the Babyfacial🍼🐘 I also want to start using a gentle retinol. Those 4 products alone would have been $324! With my Rouge discount: $360! Regular price is $450- You get 10 full size products, 3 minis +5 sample packets. 18 different things to try! ➖Which would you like me to review first?➖ 🐘I want to trial everything before I review! Here’s everything w/sizes & individual cost: #Drunk Elephant - Beste no.9 Jelly Cleanser[products]#$32/5 oz DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C.

New Drug Store Faves from Versed Skincare
Enjoying some of my latest goodies from @versed . So far I'm loving the Weekend Glow Daily Brightening Solution and the Vacation Eyes Brightening Gel. Have you tried anything from Versed? What should I try next? *Gifted Products: VERSED - WEEKEND GLOW VERSED - JUST BREATHE Clarifying Serum VERSED - VACATION EYES Brightening Eye Gel VERSED - Guards Up Daily Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 35 VERSED - Silk Slip Conditioning Lip Oil
affordable drugstore eyecream !
I've never really noticed my dark under eye circles until being in my 3rd trimester. up until then, it never was an issue for me. one day I woke up and looked in the mirror and thought "Holy crap what is going on????" so one day day at Shopper's Drug Mart, I went into the skin care section to find an eye cream that would target my dark under eye circles, and thats where I found this product. I've been using it for almost 2 months now and I've noticed my under eyes getting much brighter. I actually don't look as tired constantly as I used to before using this product. it is a clear gel consistency and glides on smoothly. I pat it in and it leaves a mild cooling sensation that I really like. I've used an eye cream before from Drunk Elephant, it was a trial size and I absolutely loved it. I've been waiting for the right time to purchase it again because of how pricey it is. So in the mean time I will be using this! I honestly don't remember how much it was at Shopper's but I want to say it was in the $20 range. VERSED - VACATION EYES Brightening Eye Gel I've given it 4 stars because: ￼affordable ￼it works - brightens my under eyes ￼has a great amount of product per package ￼non-toxic ￼cruelty free ￼vegan ￼pregnancy safe the one star I took away was just my comparison to the drunk elephant eye cream. I found that one left my undereyes feeling very supple and smooth, where as this one just feels the same. thanks for reading :)

The Rewards Keep me Coming Back!
Clinique has been my go to brand since I was a teenager. My mom uses Clinique. It was my first introduction to skincare. Recently I started really researching skincare because I’m in my 30s and I want to make sure I’m using the best products and ingredients to prevent aging. I want to expand my routine beyond Clinique to see what works best for me. But, their Smart Rewards program is really hard to turn down! Here’s a rundown of my new purchases and freebies! If you use Clinique sign up for their Smart Rewards. You’ll get email discounts and gift with purchase offers constantly. A way better deal than Sephora offers. CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge Sheertint Hydrator Broad Spectrum SPF 25 Purchased for $49 I love using BB creams. / tinted moisturizer. This has nice sheer / light coverage, moisture surge hydrator that I love and spf. Perfect multi-tasker. I also chose it because it does not have oxybenzone, a chemical sunscreen ingredient that I want to avoid since I’m breastfeeding. CLINIQUE - Just Browsing Brush-on Styling Mousse Purchased $26 Haven’t used yet but I ran out of the SEPHORA COLLECTION - SEPHORA COLLECTION Brow Builder that I have been using and this seems like a similar product (also I wanted to spend $65 to get a free gift) Gifts / Freebies CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm Birthday Gift FULL size 115ml! Value $42 I haven’t tried a cleansing balm yet and I have been looking to switch from alcohol based makeup removers. This has great reviews online. Looking forward to this Birthday Gift! CLINIQUE - Dewy for Days Moisture Surge Set Value $65 includes 3 FULL sized products! This was one of the free bonus gifts to choose from for spending $65. The set includes: CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate 48ml - This is categorized as a moisturizer but it feels like a serum. It’s in a similar bottle to my other Clinique serum. One pump is enough to cover your face. At first it felt tacky on my skin, but absorbed after 10mins and left my skin feeling hydrated. I’m not sure how to use this differently than their Moisture Surge gel. Add it to my routine in place of a moisturizer or add it in as an extra hydration serum 🤷🏻♀️ CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator 50ml - I love this moisturizer! Great for winter. Really leaves my face feeling soft and hydrated. I’ll never buy the Dramatically Different Lotion again! CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge Eye 96-Hour Hydro-Filler Concentrate 15ml - I haven’t tried this yet. It has okay reviews online. I’ll review later. So, for spending $75 I got an extra $100 in free product!!
love these two in the winter for an extra kick of hydration! I use them as serum before my moisturizer! highly recommend!!CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge Eye 96-Hour Hydro-Filler Concentrate

Say bye to Panda eyes 👋!
Dark circle and dryness might be the biggest concern for all girls. I always try to sleep early to avoid the black circle and eye wrinkles. However, sometimes you just can not make it due to many reasons. So I started to look for some skincare products for my eyes. I have tried a few brands and products that work for these concerns. And here’s 2 items I want to recommend! 1. ESTĒE LAUDER - Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Age-Correcting Eye Creme I definitely want to recommend this eye cream, especially, this silver cover with silver body bottle packaging. Estee Lauder has launched too many eye creams, but this is the first and only one I feel the strength. This one has good performance in tightening with no milia! Additionally, I found it works well on lifting. I always like to try new things, but I come back to this every time after testing other brands. 2. LANCÔME - Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye Illuminator Youth Activating ConcentrateLancome Advanced Genifique eye light pearl This one is pretty good for summer if you are afraid of heavy cream and milia! The texture is lighter than Estee Lauder, so I alter between these two. What I like the most it’s the light pearl. I use it for massage around the eye area, it works so well to reduce eye puffiness. If you feel bloated in the morning, this Lancome can be your good helper! It reduces the appearance of under-eye wrinkles and eye bags. Such a good cooling and massaging applicator! In case that I feel tired and dryness, I pick Estee Lauder. For regular daily skincare routine, I use Lancome. These two serums are different texture, but both are soothing and hydrated. I recommend these two as once the skin gets hydrated, it comes with brightness and gets rid of panda eye!
SKINCARE ROUTINE TONIGHT
Augustinus Bader - The Essence Exfoliating Toner With TFC8® beautiful hydrating toner makes my skin so plump, soft and supple instantly LANCÔME - Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye Illuminator Youth Activating Concentrate on my brows, lashes, inner and outer eye area to fortify lashes, smooth and brighten under eyes ISLE OF PARADISE - Self Tanning Drops - light - mixed a few drops into my ERNO LASZLO - Phormula 3-9 Repair Cream Sealed everything in with a few drops of dermalogica - Stress Positive Eye Lift Mask on my nose and under eyes to soften and boost moisturization, since I tend to get dry in these areas first

For wrinkles around the eyes and black circles
These two! I found that combining my Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum by Murad with The Inkey List Caffeine Eye Cream have worked on diminishing the fine lines and dark circles around my eyes while also adding a less tired 😓 look! On their own they were ok but together and you get results! Using the caffeine eye cream during the day and Retinol eye serum at night 🌙 Murad - Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum THE inkey LIST - Caffeine Eye Cream
👀 does this eye serum work? 👀
✨ well yes! but with a catch — you gotta have another hydrating eye creme on hand, because Murad - Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum dried my eyes out! 👀 so, what’s so good about it? I really think it helped with my little wrinkles and dark circles using the primary ingredient of RETINOL a derivative of Vitamin A that causes skin cells to die and regenerate faster, leading to increased new skin growth. it can tighten fine lines and wrinkles, get rid of scars, and help with acne 🌸 it can brighten your eyes, but use another moisturizing eye cream or moisturizer on top. and ALWAYS USE SPF WITH A RETINOL. have you ever gotten a sunburn on the tops of your eyes??? i have. ✨ the eye cream i use over this is boscia - Indigo Eye Cream a beautiful lavender eye cream that brightens with a touch of pigment too

EYE CREAM! Dry, eczema, dark, wrinkle prone eyes
So nothing has been working for your eye concerns? Yep, me too... until I found these holy grail products! Let’s get down to the details. I suffer from eczema mostly on and around my eyes. It’s painful, red, and burns. I’ve tried it all and other eye creams would burn and irritate my skin even more. Along with eczema I have the typical fine lines, dark circles, and puffy eyes. WELL, I found the perfect fit for my sensitive skin. DR ROEBUCK'S - Down Under Collagen Boosting Eye Treatment The first eye cream I’ve ever tried that doesn’t burn and actually helps my concerns. + calming, NO BURNING! + CLEAN & VEGAN. + rich luxurious texture. + specifically for nighttime, but I use in the AM too. + hyaluronic acid to really help dry under eyes and fine lines. + collagen boosting so it firms up your skin. + caffeine to perk up those tired eyes! + Rosehip boosts collagen + BASICALLY, targets all biggest concerns we typically have. Darkness, dryness, wrinkles, aging! + great for eczema! Made my eczema and dry patches go away. + recycled packaging. - expires after 6 months so you need to make sure to use it up in time. $38 but worth it! Did you know you can layer hydration for your under eyes? Add a eye oil right on top! I love the KORA - Noni Radiant Eye Oil + easy application with a roll on bottle. Fits right into the under eyes. + dry oil type, it absorbs quickly. + really helps dryness, dullness, and rough texture. + essentially smooths, brightens, and hydrates! + dark circles are minimized. + LOVE this to prep for my concealer. Concealer LSU’s down much smoother and looks a lot more natural. + Noni fruit, tomato fruit, & marine bamboo extracts to perk up the eyes! + roller ball is made out of rose quartz! * I have nothing bad to say about this one. It’s easy application and works! $38 best when bought in a kora organics set. Extra eye cream tips!!: ￼Make sure you are putting your eye products in after all serums and right before moisturizer. ￼use your ring finger to tap in or rub in product as softly as possible. The ring finger is the lightest (in weight/pressure) finger we have so it will minimize tug on our sensitive and wrinkle prone skin around the eyes.
This brand is for sure one of my favorites. All products are energized with rose quartz to pass on the vibrations of love with every application 💗💗. While that might not be for everyone, just the fact that they put that much care into making sure each person gets the best product they can provide, little details like that make me more inclined to spend my money. Not only that, all products are formulated without any sulfates, parabens, synthetic fragrance, synthetic colors, T.E.A., D.E.A., glycols, silicones, PEGs. ethoxylate and formaldehyde free performance | full star | even skin tone & texture, great for all skin types with being thin and easy to absorb yet super hydrating texture | full star | lightweight, non-greasy, sink right in to the skin scent | full star | heavenly! Fresh, floral, yet subtle packaging | full star | super cute rose gold accents on screw tops, love how the the bottles are sandblasted so the oils don’t create a slippery aftermath, recyclable glass bottles and boxes, minimal verbiage and clutter on bottles and boxes ingredients | full star | 99% naturally derived organic ingredients in eye and face oil, 67% organic ingredients in body oil with second ingredient & only not organic, no irritation from essential oils value | full star | because they actually work, I’m giving it a full star. Comparable prices to similar products/brands, but more care with ingredients, transparency and quality. $68 face, $58 body, $38 eye I love applying the body oil on damp skin in the shower, feel like it absorbs all the way while I do my skincare routine, then I don’t get any residual on clothing. I also only use the eye oil at night, it’s not ideal for makeup application.

RECOVERY EYE CREAM
So this actually has helped me a lot if my dark circles. It really doesn’t help with anything else besides that and moisture. I really don’t get puffy eyes I have more sunken eyes and dark circles 😩 this has definitely lightened them. Sometimes it does sting my little crows feet. Other than that I have no complaints. I think over all Kiehl’s best eye product is the avocado treatment. It’s my all time favorite. But this is definitely my go to night treatment especially after a late night out! Definitely give it a try. Skin really does have a great reaction to lavender oil when it’s done right. It also is nice as soothing due to the smell 💜 Kiehl's - Midnight Recovery Eye WHAT IS IT : An eye serum infused with botanical extracts and oils, that helps diminish the look of eye bags and dark circles MAIN INGREDIENTS - Butchers Broom Extract: Depuffs and nurtures the look of eyes. - Squalane: Smoothens the look of skin. - Evening Primrose Oil: Helps skin feels firmer and more youthful.

Kiehl’s: The Good, the Bad & the Ugly
Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cleanser I have sensitive dry skin and need something gentle, but effective when removing makeup. This cleanser does it all. It doesn’t dry me out, and removes all my makeup! Another plus is its made for all skin types! Kiehl's - Midnight Recovery Eye Never too early to care about your eye area no matter what age you are but this product is not what you need. It has essential oils in it which will irritate your under eye it’ll become itchy dry and irritated stay away from this. Kiehl's - Midnight Recovery Concentrate ’Kiehl's - Midnight Recovery Concentrate Thought this was doing something. Turns out essential oils plus sensitive skin are a bad combo. It made me red and blotchy!

Finally those Fine Lines are Gone!
Under eye areas is one of the first areas to show the signs of aging on our face. The reason why it shows the signs of aging sooner is because the skin around our eye area is the most delicate area since it is thinner than the skin on the rest. It also has fewer oil glands than the skin on the rest of our face. After a lifetime of sun exposure and repeated facial motions as I always do, those skin looses its elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles started to show up on my under eye area. My major concern with under eye area is my dark circle and finalizes. I am in my mid 20s towards 30. I am looking for a product that deals with my fine lines and puffiness, have some anti-aging treatment and not too heavy. A lot of cosmetic companies are fabulous that shameless over exaggerating their eye products can do for customers. And I’ve tried a lot of products, so far from my experience, there isn’t an eye cream that you can purchase over the counter would eliminate any of the symptoms. Lets just be honest, there is no magic eye cream like that. I don’t want to be harsh, depending on what your issues are and how serious they are. Some of them can be improved in certain levels. Some of them may need special treatment like fillers or laser and surgery and of course, lifestyle that can effectively eliminate these eye issues. The eye product i am looking for is something that will strengthen, hydrate and nourish the skin. And at the same time, keep it supple and protected in a long term to prevent the signs of aging. ESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix I used this serum before bed and in the morning, and I just adore the scent. One thing I really like about it is the great formula which is truly moisture-rich to the touch. Meanwhile this product is also absorbs so promptly. Unlike many other heavy eye products, this one just glides right on, absorbs quick without feeling sticky, It’s been so helpful in improving the look of my eye area over the past 6 weeks. My fine lines are not as visible. It did helped in diminishing off the fine lines under my eyes which is apparent in the pictures. I can feel my under eyes instantly soak sit up. Really enjoy the feeling, It's so nourishing and feels like a treat on your skin! Highly recommended if you are looking for early anti-aging eye products.
Time-saving eye cream: repair, fortify and hydrate!!👏👏
ESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix What It Is: Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair line needs no introduction. Its revolutionary serum, for one, has been selling like hotcakes since it was first launched in 1982—the “holy grail of serums,” they say. And with that in mind, it was only natural to expect much from the newest addition to the famed ANR line: the Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix. It primarily promises to do three things: (1) repair, (2) fortify, and (3) hydrate. It boasts of an “ultra-nourishing, skin strengthening formula with an innovative 360° Matrix Technology that provides a 360° cushion of plumping support to give eyes a fresh, wide-open look.” It’s designed to dramatically reduce the look of lines, wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles, and at the same time strengthen and hydrate the delicate skin around the eyes. Current Condition: I’ve had a growing obsession for eye creams since I turned 25. It was at this point in my life when I started to notice early signs of skin aging, and it’s not exactly a secret that those signs tend to show up around the eye area first as the skin surrounding it is the thinnest and therefore the most delicate. Naturally, when Estée Lauder released a new product on the market as part of its ANR line, which specifically targets my above-mentioned concerns, I was intent on giving it a whirl. My under eye problems probably aren’t as bad as I deem them to be; I’m just overly paranoid, which I feel isn’t a negative thing since it drives me to take better care of my skin. That said, I do have mild dark circles caused by late nights and constant rubbing and several fine lines underneath my eyes (although not instantly noticeable, they bother me up close). What worries me the most, however, are the developing crow’s feet that are starting to show whenever I laugh or let out a big smile. The latter is hereditary and a common peculiarity I’ve noticed amongst the women in my kin, but it bothers me just the same. How I Used It: Ideally, the product is to be used every morning before applying makeup and every night before going to bed. I did so for two straight weeks; I stuck with my normal beauty routine—double cleansing and toning, followed by serum, eye cream, and moisturizer—but I replaced my usual eye cream with Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix. The product claims to have two times concentrated infusion of Hyaluronic Acid, so I figured it should be hydrating enough on its own without other supplementary products (aka a second layer of eye cream). It has a creamy, lotion-like texture that instantly nourished my under eye area, but I love that it’s fast absorbing, too, so I won’t have to wait too long if I use it in the mornings and I have to apply makeup right after. The product comes with a custom-designed massage applicator. There’s also a stopper in the bottleneck that prevents you from getting too much product, so you won’t have to worry about that at least. Using the applicator, you just gently roll the tip under each eye in an outward motion starting from the inner corner. Do this three times to spread the product on your under eye area.

Algae Eye Serum
This is another sample I got from Ipsy that I'm finally getting around to trying. The TONYMOLY - Moisture Boost Cooling Algae Eye Serum This is a gel-type eye serum that is supposed to provide deep moisture and elasticity to the skin. the serum is infused with hyaluronic acid, sea water, and algae. It will deliver Marine nutrition deep into your skin without leaving a very tacky finish and it can be used on all skin types. hyaluronic acid - this increases skin moisture and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles sea water - rich in minerals such as magnesium calcium and potassium Algae - full of essential fatty acids which will not only just hydrate but will also create a protective barrier for your skin the full size package of this claims to have a cucumber smell to it I have a sample size and there is no smell it does feel nice and cold when applying it to the under eyes and I find that it is a little tacky but after it sinks into the skin it goes away and leaves my under eyes feeling slightly dry but not like concerningly. a little does go along way so don't go overboard and slather it on your face. this product retails for $22.00 USD on Ulta
Cherie Made Me Buy It - Part II 🤷🏻♀️
Here goes another product I picked up because I saw it on Cherie and Instagram and was instantly convinced to buy it for myself 😊. Before I start sharing what I love about TONYMOLY - Moisture Boost Cooling Algae Eye Serum ($22.00 - 0.5oz). Here is my background - I have oily combination skin with slightly large pores. I’ve been using eye creams for a year and half now mainly because my mom said it was time to be proactive with my eye products 🙂. This product is recommended for anyone who wants to ensure their sensitive eye area is targeted with two of the products main ingredients: Hyaluronic Acid and Sea Water 💦. It does not have a scent to it and if it does it is so faint I cannot pick it up. The texture is clear sheer consistency and easy to apply to the under eye areas. I use this eye serum during my night time skincare routine, after I cleanse my skin and tone it. I think I fall into the category like others that I use eye serums and cream as a way to take care of my under eye area as I get older. You don’t want to be in your 40s regretting not doing more in your late 20s or early 30s. This product has such cute packaging along with all of TonyMoly’s other products. I do not remember who specifically posted since it was popular early in its launch but I thank all my friends for the recommendation. I hope to buy more products from the “Moisture Boost Collection,” and compare how the line works together. PS - if you have a skincare fridge - pop this baby inside and experience a depuffing eye serum sensation. #CheriePartner

Bye bye dark circles ✨
Got some Kiehl's - Powerful-Strength Dark Circle Reducing Vitamin C Eye Serum samples with my Sephora points and do not regret it. I love and am obsessed with eye creams and masks so ofcourse I love samples. When I got this I also had received another under eye sample and went with this one due to the smell and texture. I have so many samples over all for under eyes that I have not finished. I’ll start or use once then kind of forget about them. But this one claims to reduce dark circles which not all boldly put in their name. Also the cream like texture was pleasing it felt rich although i feel some light tingles sometimes when I apply it. Over all I have used one full sample and am onto the second one 4 weeks in using it daily. Will update if I decide to buy full size as I was so thrown off when it said “serum” this is actually a thick rich under eye cream lotion colored.
Day 5 💛 Dewy Eyed Eye Serum
Happy early Thanksgiving everyone ✨ I wanted to be able to say that as I don’t know if I will have a post for tomorrow but I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful day. Day 5 of my BEEKMAN 1802 - Skincare Stars 7 Day Gift Setis the Dewy Eyed Illuminating & Depuffing Serum 🐐💛 The BEEKMAN 1802 - Dewy Eyed Illuminating & Depuffing Eye Serum retails for $42 and you get .5 oz of product (this is the travel size which is $15 for .17 oz). Beekman 1802 claims this eye serum instantly cools/awakens dull skin, fights dark circles, depuffs, as smooths out fine lines/wrinkles. It contains Persian silk tree bark extract to tighten the skin as well as fight dark circles and puffiness. It also contains their triple milk complex and active botanical blend. For the most part this was kind of meh for me. It just feels like a basic serum and for the price point I expected a little more. It absorbs nicely into the skin but I don’t feel the “cooling” effect it claims to have. I also don’t really see the tightening/smoothing effect either (granted I haven’t been using it long so I will continue to use the sample up and make a new post if I find any changes). The one result I do see though is the depuffing. It does have a nice depuffing effecg which I appreciate. One thing that threw me off was the illuminating claim in the name. There is nothing illuminating about this. I expected some sort of color correcting or luminosity to the formula but nothing. This is just a really basic serum that didn’t impress me. It hydrates some and depuffs the skin but nothing to justify the price. I also don’t feel like this would replace my eye cream. It’s more something I would pair up with it as it’s not as moisturizing as I would like.
BEEKMAN 1802-Dewy Eyed Illuminating & Depuffing Eye Serum
Moisture Surge Eye Serum 96-Hour Hydro-Filler
The product: Claims to lock in moisture for 96 hours for crease plumping hydration and visibility tighten and brighten the under eyes. My thoughts: I love the feel of this product, the gel is cooling and refreshing to apply. I used the serum every morning for 7 days and it definitely helped with my morning puffiness. Price: I got this as part of my Sephora play box. A full size (15ml) bottle retails for $34. Recommend: definitely! I’ve used the original Clinique facial Moisture Surge for 2 years and I will definitely be purchasing the full size Eye Concentrate and adding it to my daily routine. Also it’s time to get a new facial Moisture Surge! Can’t recommend it enough for people with dry skin.

The Inkey List Caffeine Eye Serum
This is The Inkey List’s Caffeine eye serum! It’s meant to be worn either under an existing eye cream or used on its own. It’s meant to make you look awake (even if you’re not!). It is a smooth serum texture and is not cold. It’s white but smooths out to a clear application. A little goes A LONG way. I really love it! I use it everyday, both at night and in the morning. It makes me look awake and takes away some pigmentation. In addition, it’s one of the most effective and cheapest eye serums I’ve ever used. I liked it because, in addition to what mentioned above, I don’t have to use a lot. My eye area gets very dry and this is very hydrating. I would recommend the product to someone else because it’s cheap and effective. The product is SO worth it and the fact that it’s at Sephora makes it so much more accessible!

Drunk Elephant Eye Serum
DRUNK ELEPHANT - Shaba Complex Firming Eye Serum While I liked the texture and thought it felt super hydrating, I feel like it didn’t do anything for me. I prefer the C- Firma over the Shaba Complex. It hydrated my under eyes, but did nothing for my dark circles and my makeup creased worse than normal on me while I was using it. 4/5 stars because I think it would work great for others, just not for my specific skin concerns.

Shaba Complex Eye Serum
I received this eye serum in Drunk Elephant’s Precious Cargo Kit™️ and I really like it! I had honestly never heard of it when my kit came and I was pleasantly surprised the first time I used it. It leaves a cooling sensation under the eyes and is more creamy for a serum than I thought it’d be. I also don’t think it has a smell which is nice for delicate skin. It has given me no milia and I wake up with bright under-eyes every morning after I’ve used this the night before. I don’t think I’ll be purchasing this in the full size because I have other eye creams to use up and this is very expensive. I would recommend to a friend though!

Eye Serum for Emergencies Only
Just like with every product from The Ordinary, The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG has a learning curve for use. This thin, ambrosial, almost gel-like eye serum is packed with caffeine to to reduce puffiness. I was told by a Deciem employee that you cannot use this product every day otherwise it may dry your skin out. I was told this after I purchased it with the intent of everyday use. I was salty at first. However, this has been a really good secret weapon for me. It dries down and is still kind of sticky, like any face serum, in order to grab onto a heavier moisturizer. It’ll last me a long time and it doesn’t bust the bank at $7 and it’s made with hyaluronic acid and lactic acid.
