Empties - Rapid Fire Reviews 🔥
Let’s try something different, shall we? I usually go on IG stories to share my empties, but I figured I’d just post them & do a rapid fire review on the products since there are some really good ones here! 🌸 Innisfree Volcanic Clusters Pore Clearing Facial Foam $12 - This is a GREAT cleanser - I received this product from @octoly for review & I’m glad I did because I probably wouldn’t have tried this cleanser or products from this brand otherwise. This cleanser has Jeju volcanic clusters in the formula that help exfoliate & clear your pores. This cleanser feels so luxurious as it lathers into a silky foam and it never left my skin feeling stripped. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sol de Janiero Coco Cabana Moisturizing Body Cream Cleanser $25 - I’m genuinely sad that this is empty; I’ll definitely be repurchasing this ASAP! This is a bit runny for a cream cleanser, but a little goes a long way - it lathers beautifully; leaves your skin clean, hydrated, soft & smells amazing! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Not Pot Elderberry CBD + Immunity Gummies $39.99 - I’ve been loving Not Pot gummies for a year now, and the Elderberry Immunity flavor take the cake! As someone who has an autoimmune illness, I can confidently say that these have helped with sleep, anxiety and my chronic pain. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Kopari Beauty Coconut Oil Deodorant $14 - This was my first go at trying a natural deodorant since the deodorant cream that I tried from another brand, which was a complete failure. I was able to get two of these for the price of one during a sale at Sephora - I use deodorant morning & night, and this has lasted SO long! This deodorant is great for anyone who wants to transition to a natural deodorant; I didn’t experience any purging and leaves me sweat free / stink free all day! 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Youth to the People Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream $58 (for full size) - This was the first product that I tried from YTTP that made me fall in love with their brand & products! I love this moisturizer for my nighttime routine as it is super hydrating. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Grande Cosmetics Lash Enhancing Serum $65 (for full size) - I will definitely be repurchasing this as soon as I have the extra money to do so, consider it’s pretty expensive! I honestly put off using this product for so long because I was convinced without trying that it was a gimmicky product. Boy, was I wrong! My lashes have never looked so long & full! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Drunk Elephant Shaba Eye Complex $60 (for full size) - This is without a doubt my favorite eye cream to use during my nighttime routine. It keeps my under eye area so smooth & hydrated. I have seen a major difference in the appearance of fine lines, baggy eyes and dullness. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Drunk Elephant B-Hydra Serum $48 (for full size) - This is hands down my most used DE product! I use this everyday morning & night as part of my routines. This product single handedly saves my skin in the winter from the dry air. My skin never feels dry since using this! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Do You Need An Eye Cream?
Short answer? No. Long answer? No. Eye creams are all advertising- brands selling you a moisturizer in a smaller bottle and pretending it’s somehow superior to another moisturizer. It’s not. I love the eye creams I’ve featured in this photo, but moreso because they feel nice and I like a twenty-step skincare routine, not because they’re miracle cures. This skincare myth doesn’t offer long-term help for your puffiness, dark circles, fine lines, or wrinkles. Let’s talk about what does help them: • Puffiness and Dark circles are generally a genetic, lifestyle, and/or environmental issue. Allergies? See it around eyes. Not very hydrated? See it around eyes. Not enough sleep? See it around eyes. Drink more water, reduce sodium/alcohol/caffeine intake, get more sleep, and consult a doctor about any seasonal allergies. As well, the puffiness/dark circles may be due to fat distribution in the face, something that worsens with age. Wear sunscreen to preserve what collagen you can and visit a dermatologist to talk about filler for a visibly-noticeable long-term fix. Until then, I’m a fan of Glossier. - Stretch Concealer over Glossier. - Bubblewrap Eye + Lip Plumping Cream to keep my hereditary dark circles under control. • Fine lines and Wrinkles are a touchy subject. The main offense is a good defense: apply a fragrance-free (all good skincare should be fragrance-free though) moisturizer to your entire face- including around your eyes, where skin is thin and fragile. Repeat the process with sunscreen. Voila, you’ve staved off wrinkles another day! Want to try a more “active” approach? Lightly apply a collagen-stimulating peptide serum and/or a gentle retinol cream. However, when the fine lines and wrinkles have already developed, no topical product is going to be as effective as biting the bullet and getting some filler- I’d sooner save my $$$ for the dermatologist’s office than on an eye cream that claims to be able to erase years off my future crow’s feet.

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
Clinique Moisture Surge Eye Fuller
🌸What are the claims? It is an ultra lightweight, cushiony water gel that helps the eye skin replenish its own moisture for a full 96 hours of intense, crease plumping moisture. For all skin types & textures. Formulated for dark circles, puffiness, dryness, loss of firmness, & elasticity. 🌸Texture/Consistency? It is a lightweight gel, very smooth. 🌸My thoughts? I really enjoy this eye gel! It’s very moisturizing & it didn’t irritate my sensitive dry skin. I like the color of the gel because it makes my under eyes look so bright & de puffed. It smells like roses & is very gentle on my eyes. I personally don’t see a difference in the wrinkles, lines or elasticity in my skin. All I see is hydrated under eyes that feel amazing. I probably wouldn’t repurchase the full size, i don’t care for it enough. 🌸Price Vs. Size? For .5 oz it’s $34 , kind of pricey! CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge Eye 96-Hour Hydro-Filler Concentrate

My Skincare Routine! My Holy Grails 🏆
Here are my morning and nighttime skincare routines! Feel free to give any suggestions or recommendations! Also keep in mind that if you are just starting out with skincare, focus on the main 3 products in your routine (cleanser, moisturizer, sunscreen) before getting into the more fancy stuff. I’ll be making an article for skincare beginners soon! Morning Routine: ￼Krave Beauty Match Hemp Cleanser: Cleans my skin very well without leaving it feeling stripped or dry. Has very clean and beneficial ingredients. Also very affordable! ￼WLDKAT Coconut and Noni Fruit Electrolyte Spray: This is the first spray I’ve found that 1.) Does not have fragrance or essential oils 2.) Does not have witch hazel or alcohol 3.) Is actually beneficial and hydrating for my skin! ￼The Ordinary Niacinamide Serum: If you are into skin care even just a little bit, you definetely have this serum. Niacinamide is truly the miracle ingredient and has done wonders at reducing my sebum production. ￼Versed Vacation Eyes Gel: To be completely honest, I haven’t seen the biggest difference using this product or any eye cream. I personally struggle with puffiness when I wake up every morning and I’ve never found a product to help it, because I’m convinced that it happens because I don’t drink enough water. So I definitely recommend drinking water! ￼Naturium Marine Hyaluronics Water Cream: I love this product to death! Water creams are my absolute favorite textures when it comes moisturizers because I have very oily skin. This product is very hydrating but is super light weight and absorbs within 10 seconds. This one is also on the more affordable side. ￼Purito Comfy Water Sun Block SPF 50+ PA++++: This is a new discovery in my skincare routine, but I’m already in love! I have an article on it already so go check that one out for more information, but to sum it up, this sunscreen is is very lightweight with no white cast. The ingredients are absolutely amazing and it’s only $16! Nighttime: ￼Slaii Makeup- Melter Butter Cleanser: I’m not super amazed with this product, but it does do a good job at removing makeup, dirt, and excess oils. It is a little bit to thick and dense for my skin, but this might be a good one if you have dry skin. The only reason I’m using it right now is because I ran out of my last cleansing balm, so leave you’re recommendations below! ￼Krave Beauty Match Hemp Cleanser ￼Naturium BHA 2% Liquid Exfoliant: Where do I even start with this product! This is one of my absolute holy grail products. I have lots of blackheads on the sides of my nose and this made them almost completely disappear. If you have acne, blackheads, or any textural issues, I would define you recommend you use a BHA product, but do your own research first! ￼The Ordinary Niacinamide Serum ￼Versed Vacation Eye Gel ￼Naturium Marine Hyaluronics Water Cream ￼WLDKAT Coconut and Noni Fruit Electrolyte Spray Thank you so much for reading this! Please leave a comment or cheer this post!
I am really enjoying these products by versed a lot!! Here are my thoughts: . . 💛 Vacation Eyes Brightening Eye Gel - 5/5 (will repurchase) • Going into these cooler months you will need all the hydration you can get it. Not only does it offer that, it also gives the illusion of no eye bags because of the texture. It's like an optical illusion. Keeps my eye area smooth. . . 💚 Zero-G Smoothing Eye Cream - 4.5/5 (deciding) • I use this eye cream at night to give my eye area the extra love it needs. It's a smooth texture that's a little slippery. I was expecting it to be a bit thicker because of that. A little goes a long way. I have to rub it together first before I apply it. . . 🖤 Few Point Moisturizer Gel Cream 5/5 (will repurchase) • This is my favorite out of three. This offers hydration especially for my oily skin. I apply extra on a few dry areas but and my skin is smooth throughout the day. I know most people use heavier products in colder seasons but my skin really enjoys the gel textures. This works great alone, under sunscreen and make-up. Definitely a keeper. . . Have you tried these products yet?!?! .

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!
Oh! HERBIVORE's EMERALD Oil, how I adore you!💚💚💚
I have acne-prone skin and I never thought I would love cbd skincare like I love this product! It's rly a life savor for those who suffer from acne! HERBIVORE - Emerald Deep Moisture Glow Oil It's a full-spectrum CBD, which means it includes a total range of cannabinoids, and the presence of small amounts of THC (less than 0.3 percent) results in an "entourage effect." Think of this as power in numbers as all the cannabinoids work together to be extra effective at calming redness and boosting hydration. In my case, it soothes and repairs acne breakouts and skin inflammation well, even getting rid of acne permanently if used consistently. It leaves the skin greasy, but that's bearable. It definitely has a bit of a weed smell but goes away when applied How I use it: After applying LANCÔME - Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye Illuminator Youth Activating Concentrate, I'll warm 3 to 4 drops of this oil between my palms, then press it where there's skin redness or acne, pressing it more to boost its absorption, avoiding my T-zone as much as possible. Since summer is coming and I have oily skin, I only use a toner, a serum, and an essential oil in my night skincare routine, skipping the facial cream. It's a bit greasy, so I only use it when I have skin redness or sudden acne breakouts. I highly recommend this for those with acne-prone skin. Do you like the product? Share with me!😘😘

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!

GOOD serum with a good brand's philosophy👍👍
Dr Murad is a board-certified dermatologist, a trained pharmacist and an Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at the Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA. He is the founder of Murad Skincare and author of multiple books, including “The Water Secret,” the “Cellulite Solution,” and “Wrinkle Free Forever.” He’s also the president of the University for Inclusive Health, and continues to see patients at his practice in California. What is Dr Murad’s philosophy? Dr Murad championed the idea of “beauty from within” and takes a 360 degree approach to skincare and wellness. Put another way, he is also known as ‘The Father of Internal Skincare.” He is a big believer that good skincare starts with the right nutrition and has said in interviews that “80% of your skin’s health is from internal care – nutrition from a good diet and supplements. Only 20% is from topical products.” To achieve optimal health as well as beautiful, healthy looking skin, Dr Murad believes in a multi prong approach that includes: cellular hydration, nutrition, exercise that brings joy, creative expression, reconnecting with your “inner toddler,” reducing stress, as well as the right skin care. One of the cornerstones of his philosophy is to get enough water at the cellular level. He believes that cellular hydration is the common thread linking aging, disease, obesity, and wrinkles. This translates into drinking more than the recommended eight glasses of water a day. People should also aim to eat their water from consuming raw fruits and vegetables. Murad is also known for promoting the use of dietary supplements to improve the skin. He is a fan of pomegranates, which are antioxidants and packed with polyphenols, which may boost the effectiveness of sunscreen, as well as goji berries, which are high in amino acids and vitamin C. When it comes to his skincare line, the workhorses are the serums, which he views as the heavy lifters of a beauty routine, and “have the power to change your skin.” I bought this over a month ago and have been delighted with the results. I’ve used a few Murad products and love the range so had high expectations of this product and it didn’t disappoint. I bought this over a month ago and have been delighted with the results. I’ve used a few Murad products and love the range so had high expectations of this product and it didn’t disappoint. According to the company, Murad products use clinical–strength ingredients and the formulas are a mix of naturally derived extracts and lab created ones. Murad products rely on the power of antioxidants, which includes green tea, pomegranates and vitamin C. These ingredients are thought to protect the skin against the environmental free radicals and they may have anti-inflammatory properties. Impressed with the overall performance of this serum, I observed how simple and easy it was to apply via the pump dispenser. it had a pleasant and smooth texture, which glided onto skin nicely and absorbed almost instantly, leaving no unpleasant residue. And i also felt the serum improved the look and feel of their skin over the testing period, observing a difference to texture along with a decrease in lines and wrinkles. This is a really good introduction to retinol products (I have always been wary). It is sensitive on the skin and helped with skin texture. The smell is nice and not too strong. I really like Murad packaging as well in general so I stayed impressed by this. I have sensitive skin and usually i'm really carefull with strong serums! But that one is great for sensitive skin! I don't have any irritation or redness on the skin after it! It works really good leaves my skin smooth and bright! I using this serum after one day and it's still works wonders for me! Ease of use: 5/5 Design: 5/5 Instructions: 4/5 Performance: 4/5 I LIKED Pleasant texture which absorbed quickly Some testers saw a difference to fine lines Skin felt smoother I DISLIKED A few testers experienced a tingling sensation initially One tester found that the serum hardened in the nozzle so would've liked an alternative dispenser One tester disliked the scent
Does this eye serum actually work?🤔🤔🤔
Murad - Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum I am24, with combination skin, more on the oily side.This anti aging eye gel contains the powerful ingredient Retinol, which works both preventative and corrective against signs of aging. But at the same time it’s developed to suit the most sensitive skin types and is also ophthalmologist tested. The company highlights that it contains a fast-acting retinoid, a time-released retinol, and a retinol booster. And that this combination will work effectively, without causing irritation. The eye gel also contains the ingredient cotton wool grass extract. Which is said to deliver 24 hours of hydration and prevent dryness. Another ingredient they highlight is a marine complex. Which is another anti-aging element that they use in the serum. Retinol is part of a group vitamin-A derivatives called retinoids (which also includes, for example, tretinoin and isotretinoin). It’s the most used and studied group of anti-aging ingredients in skincare. And has proven effects on the ability to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The retinoids work in many ways. For example, they increase cell turnover and production of collagen. They also stimulate the production of new blood vessels in the skin (something that will improve skin color and give a more glowy complexion). They are also shown to be able to fade age spots and to increase the production of hyaluronic acid (which gives you a more hydrated skin from the inside) This is the reason why retinoids are considered to be gold standard when it comes to anti-aging skincare. Worth mentioning though is that improvements take time and it will usually take 3-6 months until you can start seeing a positive change. Murad claims after that after 4 weeks 93% saw a reduction in lines and wrinkles, smoother and softer eye area skin, 87% noticed firmer eye area skin, 90% saw more youthful, revitalised eye area skin. For more extensive results you are going to have to use the product for longer than 4 weeks after the skins cell turnover cycle is about 6 weeks so you can expect too much within the first 4 weeks. Despite the higher price of Murad products compared to others, I honestly believe that this is worth it. You’re not just paying for a serum you’re paying for the technology behind the serum as well not many other brands put as much thought into formulation than Murad the only others I can think of the top of my head would be Medik8. All in all, I'm giving this eye serum four stars because I did see an immediate improvement in my under-eye area, but it does leave somewhat of a film if too much is used. The directions to read using one to two pumps. I only use maybe a quarter of a pump otherwise I do see that film I was talking about. Like I said, I did see an immediate Improvement and I do use the extra product if I do apply more under the eye on some of my wrinkles. Giving this four stars because although it is good and I noticed an improvement, I'm not too sure that it actually goes deep into the skin. I'm not sure if I will be repurchasing or trying something else. It will be interesting to see if I do use something else and that doesn't provide the same results, so I will have to go back and repurchase this. Have you tried this one before? Do you like it?
Pretty in Purple, but not so stunning
I am a big fan of this brand, cleen beauty, because of their affordability, clean ingredients, and honest marketing. They don’t claim to have “superfoods” whatever those are or magical face-blasting powers that will leave you looking twenty years younger. Just honest, clean, and cheap. This retails at under $7 so if you want to take a chance on an eye balm, this is a good contender. My husband enjoyed how it felt on his oily skin, but neither of us felt a cooling sensation. On my dry skin, however, it left a layer of residue under my eyes that never soaked in and actually made them feel dry, like I’d been awake for twenty hours and was about to hit the pillow. It also did not help with my dark circles. It did give a little hydration boost, and hey — maybe that’s what you want. It may work for you, it may not. I don’t recommend it for dry skin, and honestly eye balms and creams tend to be over hyped anyway. If you want to try something, go cheap and clean like this but don’t expect miracles.
NEW BRAND, NEW PRODUCTS !!
I ran into the brand “cleen beauty” at Walmart and I am really impressed so far. I picked out two products and both were around $10 which is SO affordable!! This brand is cruelty-free, vegan, and is formulated without parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, and mineral oils. CLEAN BEAUTY - Grapefruit water gel moisturizer I REALLY like this moisturizer!! I have pretty dry skin, so I like applying a water based moisturizer to hydrate my skin before applying a thicker one meant more for actual moisturizing and this one is AMAZING!! I use a good bit of moisturizer and a little of this goes a LONG way. It has grapefruit and orange oil to help tone skin and it has a subtle hint of grapefruit which I really like! Overall: 10/10 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ cleen beauty - Cooling Eggplant Eye Balm I like this eye balm a lot but i am also looking to try different eye products soon because this one isn’t my favorite. I like the color and how its purple to match the eggplant name!! I also think that it’s a very moisturizing eye balm, but it doesn’t have any cooling affect what so ever. Just from looking at the name I was expecting a more gel like texture or something something water based that would be hydrating to my under eyes but this was more of a chapstick consistency. BUT besides that this product is pretty good and I am going to continue using it! Overall: 8/10 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

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.

I recommend this to anyone who wants firmer under-eye area. The product is really gentle and hydrating too.
Fresh Black Tea Firming Eye Serum
This @freshbeauty eye serum is designed to provide a firming effect on the delicate eye area. It works for all skin types and it’s light gel texture ensures it applies easily and gently. It addresses concerns such as loss of firmness and elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles, and dullness and uneven texture. I’ve been using this product since May and still have almost half of the bottle left! Even though it is quite pricey at $72, with daily use for almost 8 months and easily another 5 months left of use, the price is well worth it. It is super gentle and soothing and I love applying it each night. I’ve seen results with the general elasticity and bounciness of my under eye area - it looks firmer and less saggy in the mornings. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a gentle eye product to help with dullness/loss of firmness in the under eye area.
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!

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.
The Ordinary-Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG
The Kiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado is described as being a creamy, moisturizing eye treatment to serum that moisturizes the under eyes with avocado oil. This eye treatment is designed specifically for people with dry skin, since it is super creamy. ⭐️ This eye treatment is a staple in my routine. I’ve used it for about a full year now and I don’t plan on switching to another one anytime soon. I take the tiniest amount and gently pat it in with my ring fingers for the most luxurious, moisturized effect I’ve ever experienced with an eye serum. I typically have flaky skin around my eyes and this really smooths it out. I would highly recomend this to anyone with dry skin looking for a really good eye treatment. Also, don’t bother buying the big size, the smaller size is a way better deal and I still haven’t used all of it yet.
