I’m a 15 year old girl who had severe acne for about a year. My acne is pretty much gone now, but I still have tons of severe PIE (NOT PIH, IMPORTANT!!!) that’s so red it looks like active acne. I also have huge pores that can’t be covered up at all. Does anyone have any recommendations for fading PIE fast? I’ll share my routine below. I take off my makeup with Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel I use a Pyratine XR cytokinin cleanser, which I couldn’t find here. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% THEINKEYLIST - Caffeine Eye Cream I then use a 0.025% tretitonin and 0.1% clindamycin gel that’s been prescribed to me by me derm. I know I should stop using it to repair my skin barrier, but every time I go more than a week without it I get deep painful cysts. Cetaphil - Moisturizing Lotion And I use calamine lotion as a spot treatment and cortisone 10 as a spot treatment for larger, redder cysts.

Product junkie reporting for duty 🙋🏾♀️ Just received these goodies from Sephora and I am so excited! Haven’t tried any of them yet but will update as I do. Supergoop! - Play Lip Balm SPF 30 with AcaiI am obsessed with the Supergoop Glow Stick so I have love for the entire brand. I am obsessed with lip products and I have been compulsively buying lip products from multiple brands just to test them all. Anything to keep spirits high during quarantine am I right? ☀️ innisfree - Jeju Cherry Blossom Dewy Glow Jelly Cream Gel creams are an oily girls dream! This product reminds me a lot of the SATURDAY SKIN - Waterfall Glacier Water Cream which I absolutely loved so I can’t wait. I am rarely disappointed by K beauty products. I am new to innisfree but I have only heard great things! 🍒 innisfree - My Lip Balmsee aforementioned ode to lip products lol ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Norvina : Electric Cake Liner I am getting into more colorful eye looks and getting on the graphic liner trend. Cake liners seem so fun, I recently bought some Suva Beauty ones and tested one of the shades over the weekend and it was actually so easy to use. I’ve seen some awesome looks using the Norvina shades so I can’t wait! 🌈 THEINKEYLIST - Caffeine Eye CreamA girl got big old eyebags!

Hey everyone ! Here is a layout of my PM Routine. I try to keep my PM Routine simple as well but also effective. 1. Korres Cream Cleanser, this is my new favorite face wash ! It starts out as a cream and goes to a foam. It’s very gentle but helps clean my face very well. Also very good for removing makeup, you should still double cleanse though. 2. Olehenriksen glow2oh dark spot toner is magic in a bottle. If you struggle with hyperpigmentation this is amazing ! It has AHAs to help combat dark marks. It’s smells amazing also !!! I’m currently using a sample but after I run out I will definitely be purchasing the full size ! 3. The ordinary hyaluronic acid serum is my favorite! It helps hydrate my skin ! It’s also super affordable. One thing I can say it’s a bit sticky but works well with other serums. 4. Olehenriksen Vitamin C serum I use morning and night. Vitamin C is my favorite ingredient and helps with overall brightening my skin and helping with hyperpigmentation. 5. Olehenriksen Frightening banana ice cream is a nice eye cream from morning at night to help with dark circles and also brighten your under eyes. 6. Glossier Moisturizing Rich is my favorite moisturizer this is my third bottle it’s very thick and also helps moisturize and hydrate my skin. It has a slight lavender scent but not super powerful and disappears upon application.
Am Skincare Routine
This is my current AM routine. It’s super important to keep my morning routine very simple and effective. These products give my skin an amazing glowing finish and ready for me to tackle the day. 1. Glossier Milky Jelly Cleansers is an amazing gentle wash to clean and refresh your skin. I love it so much this is my second bottle. 2. Olehenriksen Vitamin C serum is my absolute favorite! I will admit it’s a splurge coming at $65 but it’s definitely worth it in my opinion because Vitamin C is a key ingredient in my routines. It has a slight citrusy scent but nothing to overbearing. 3. Olehenriksen brightening banana eye cream is a great eye cream for helping with dark circles. It’s lasted me so long. 4. Korres Gel probiotic cream is an amazing light weight moisturizer for the AM. This is amazing because it not only leaves me with a nice glow but it very lightweight. 5. SPF SPF SPF, it’s very important for you to be wearing sunscreen everyday and I find that this very effective. It’s very clear and doesn’t have a white cast at all. It’s only spf 30 which kinda sucks but I still love it.

My nightly routine w/retinal
Every night I choose a facial wash depending on how my face is feeling and what I’d like to be using. When I will be working with retinal in my routine, I like to start with a nice gentle exfoliation like TATCHA - The Deep Cleanse Exfoliating Cleanser It’s a gentle enough cleanser to use every day but I choose to use it 3-4 times a week. It’s a beautiful light scent and I love how soft it is on my skin, yet manages to exfoliate. I definitely recommend this cleanser if you’re a bit worried about working with physical exfoliants. It’s nothing to fear. 💜 Then again as I stated I’m using my retinal tonight so I want to be sure to have a very hydrated face. Hydration is key for me as retinal can be very drying for my skin. I use a lot of hydrating toners and essences to really plump up my skin before adding the retinal. These would be TATCHA - The Essence Plumping Skin Softener & INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner & YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Oil (these are just some I use) They all give my face the layer of hydration needed to move forward. Then I come in with Medik8 - Crystal Retinal I’m loving the retinal as I’ve only had small white heads surface and easily disappear. I did notice my skin becoming drier when I went up to level 6 but again, found a way to combat that. I’ve only been working with retinal a short few months so I have no results to share at this time. And finally when I am working with a strong active (such as retinal) I lather my face in moisturizer. I had yet to find a night time face mask that worked for me until I discovered this beauty YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask It’s the perfect consistency for my skin. Never a heavy, oily, sticky feeling. Just sinks in and keeps my face locked in moisture. And all the added benefits, it’s heart throbbing 💗 get excited over this one ya’ll! It’s good! And I always use an eye cream, day or night. And am loving FARMACY - Cheer Up Brightening Vitamin C Eye Cream with Acerola Cherry I’ve noticed a remarkable difference in the dark circles and just tone of my skin all around my eye. Hope me sharing my night time retinal routine can be helpful for some of you. I’m always here to answer questions
Where my homies at? 🙋♀️
Where my homies at? 🙋♀️ . Pictured are a few of my favorite products I am using right now. I tried to give a good variety from cleansers, toners, serums (actives), eye cream, moisturizers and oils. I forgot my essences which I have been using a lot of hydrating ones. . ———- Has your state/county started to lift restrictions? (WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED) We now have salons (hair and nail), gyms and pools open. And professional sports can play without spectators. This week, restaurants and some fast food places are beginning to open with a limit on customers as they must abide by social distancing regulations. My husband said one of the malls was opening this weekend as well. . Personally I can’t form an opinion on this. I haven’t listened to the news in a month. I’m hoping those in charge of making these decisions have carefully weighed the pros/cons and know what the hell they are doing. I fear still for our hospitals but again, I am not sure if our government feels we are more prepared. I try to stay away from the news as it causes a lot of anxiety for me. I seriously hope one day soon we will see the toilet paper isle fully stocked and feel like we quite possibly all were apart of a big prank! - seriously, we have not seen tp in months!!! And when my husband finally spotted paper towels - you know, the ones where you need the entire roll to clean up a mess - they wanted $10 for 2 cheap rolls! Ugh! . Blessings to you all! Stay safe and be well! 💚

I’ve Tried These from DE And Here’s What Happened...
I've longed to use this brand after seeing many bloggers promoting it. I have very dry, sensitive skin and since everyone has been raving about it, I bought a small sample set to try it out. I'm currently trying out one DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream, one DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum, and a small bottle of DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil. This skincare brand uses natural ingredients that are hypoallergenic and non-irritating. 😊😊😊 💞The eye cream is moisturizing and spreads easily, but I haven't noticed it reducing my dark circles and fine lines. I can say this has helped a bit with hollowness under my eyes and feels really nice. I gently massage it in to help with circulation in the area. However, I think I can find a more affordable choice for eye crean like this, 💞The gel-like serum is not irritating at all and feels very comfortable on my skin. It has made my face baby soft. Some said it helps clear up hormonal zits really quickly (usually overnight). However, there is not enough in the sample package for me to see any results. Maybe I will buy a full size in the future when I break out (hopefully not) 💞I'm in love with the Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil! I'm definitely buying it after trying the sample. It's really versatile. I normally apply a layer of facial oil after cleansing by rubbing a few drops between my palms till it's warm then pressing it onto my skin. My skin is very dry, and I've always used ampoules or essential oil with my skincare. I also either use a very moisturizing primer or prep my skin with facial oil before applying my makeup. This Drunk Elephant facial oil really feels great on my skin; it's absorbed quickly and leaves my skin moisturized with a glow, and it's not at all greasy. Applying it before makeup or mixing and using it with foundation leaves me with smooth and wrinkle-free skin. I highly recommended it! What's your opinion on DE? Share with me! 🥰🥰
Skincare Story: Acne to Eczema to Glow-Up
When I started my skincare journey, I had the oiliest skin imaginable and dealt with constant hormonal breakouts. I tried every brand Sephora had to offer- each one filled with more fragrance, essential oils, and/or alcohol than the last. My skin quickly became overwhelmed and I broke out into terrible atopic dermatitis which would become chronic. And bam! I had eczema. It was... a struggle, to say the least. I went from oily to combination, with flare-ups that got me so dry I’d flake. Unpleasant. But I learned. I switched to fragrance-, essential oil-, alcohol-free skincare. Cleansers with gentle surfactants. Less exfoliation and more nourishing ingredients. Added hydrating products to reduce the dehydration that caused my oily skin and keep my now-combo skin happy. I gave my skin at least 2-4 no-actives rest days every week. My skin slowly recuperated. Now my hyperpigmentation is fading and my eczema flare-ups are less common. I still get breakouts, but they’re less painful and less long-lived. A few products (such as PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster and The Ordinary - Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% ) are amazing for their role in reducing my hyperpigmentation, but I can’t emphasize enough how my acne and eczema flare-ups wouldn’t have improved if I hadn’t eliminated my triggers by switching brands. I stopped using fragranced brands like Origins, Fresh, Herbivore, Dr Jart, Tatcha, and Summer Fridays, and switched to biocompatible brands like Drunk Elephant, The Ordinary, The Inkey List, and Paula’s Choice. By taking out all possible irritants, my skin found peace. My acne reduced in frequency + intensity and I nowadays a combo of PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Niacinamide Booster and PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA (Salicylic Acid) Liquid Exfoliator keeps them short-lived. Skin rest days are still important but I can’t emphasize enough that your skin is an organ and everyone should be treating it as such 🙌🏽

Dry under eyes? Try this. 👀💧💣
Here lies the body of belif - Eye Bomb gwp . It was just a little bitty things, but it has a purposed. Belif wanted this product to smooth fine lines with more than a full day of moisture, layer nicely under makeup and increase skin’s elasticity. A-okay for people with dry, normal, combination, oily and sensitive skin. I got this product about a year ago and I definitely finished it faster than my other belif products. But is was small so 🤷🏾♀️ . I have oily, dehydrated skin with wrinkles under my eyes so I wanted to get something to hydrate them. I do have eye creams that I like more than this one, but I wouldn’t scoff at the chance to purchase it again. It has a light texture and the gel formula creates an instant cooling effect when it is applied. Tip: Get an enhanced cooling feeling by keeping the eye cream in your refrigerator. Purchasable in 25 mL/.84 fl.oz. at the following locations: 🔘 Sephora for $48 🔘Ulta for $48 🔘 belif.com, but price was not listed because it is sold out. Recommend? 👍🏾 Rebuy or deny? Rebuy, but not until I finish my ORIGINS - Plantscription Anti-Aging Power Eye Cream
Dreamy Nighttime Routine 🌜🔮
To start my nighttime skincare routine, I wipe my face with Thayer’s rose toner using one of my reusable cotton rounds. I only wash my face when I shower (every 2 days or so), so washing my face is never really part of my nighttime skincare routine. Then, I apply Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant with another reusable cotton round. Once this sinks in I go in with my Tatcha Violet-C Brightening Serum. It goes on more like an oil than a serum and just feels very luxurious on the skin. I follow this up with whatever night cream I happen to have on hand, which right now is Laneige’s Cica Sleeping Mask. I really like this night cream and always wake up with very smooth and moisturized skin. Then I apply Belif’s Moisturizing Eye Bomb to my under-eye and eyelid. This eye cream has more moisturizing benefits than depuffing or getting rid of dark circles, so I like to use it at night to nourish my eye area. I apply castor oil that I put in these little mascara containers (bought on Amazon) to my brows and lashes to condition them and encourage growth. Finally I put the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask on my lips and head to bed with my silk pillowcase and weighted blanket!

INSTANT RESULTS! HOLY GRAIL STATUS!
I wanted to introduce you to the @saturday_skin Wide Awake Brightening Eye Cream with Avocado. This eye cream is formulated with antioxidants, avocado protein, and a peptide complex that visibly illuminates and hydrates the skin around the eyes. I can say with confidence that this cream does exactly as it claims. This eye cream gives you that energized, wide-awake look and totally refreshes the eye area which is why I use this every morning! Also, helps minimize the appearance of dark circles, depuffs the eye area and smooth fine lines. It has a lightweight silky gel texture and is super easy to apply. And of course the packaging is just stunning! • • I highly recommend picking it up and giving it a try! #saturdayskin just launched a mini version of the cream if you would like to test it out before committing to the full size! 💗
✨ Treat Yourself At Home - At Home Facial ✨
Once or twice a week I like to exfoliate my skin to help boost the glow, help with breakouts, and all the benefits that come with exfoliating. The exfoliator I’ve been using is the FREEMAN - Freeman Hemp Milk Peel which is formulated for oily to combo skin. I’ve also been outside walking more, so decided to throw in a little extra hydration set that I picked up from Ulta to make it a more spa-like experience. The products I used are the 3 piece hydration set from CosRX (includes the cleanser, moisture pad, and sheet mask; makes it really convenient!), exfoliator, and an eye cream and face moisturizer. I included the information on the back of the CosRX set so you could see the benefits listed for each step. I only included the top part of the set with the benefits because the bottom part listed the ingredients and other info. . Products [Step #]: 3 Step Kit - COSRX - One Step Moisture Up Kit [Steps 1, 3, and 4] Exfoliator- FREEMAN - Freeman Hemp Milk Peel [Step 2] Eye cream - SATURDAY SKIN - Wide Awake Brightening Eye Cream with Avocado [Step 5] Face moisturizer - belif - Aqua bomb [Step 6] . First I used the cleanser in the CosRX kit. It is a gel consistency and foamed nicely, but wasn’t drying. Then I used let the exfoliator sit on my face for 15 seconds, then rubbed it in for 30 seconds and rinsed it off. It’s more gentle than I was expecting and haven’t noticed much results in the few times I’ve used it. I don’t like that it’s on your face for such a small amount of time, doesn’t feel like it has much time to help with anything. Next, I used the moisture up pad. The instructions said to use the rougher side first and then use the softer side “to pick up the remaining debris.” I didn’t notice anything special after using this step either. I went in with the sheet mask next and left it on for 20 minutes. The fit was nice and was nicely soaked with essence, but not any leftover in the package. This left my face feeling hydrated and soft. I patted the remaining essence in and waited a couple minutes and put on my eye cream and face moisturizer. . Before/After: As I mentioned, I enjoyed exfoliating one or two times a week, but I don’t often go this full out (with the extra steps for hydration boosting)! This was such a fun pamper session with the CosRX Kit, which is reasonably price (I think like $6 or $8) and it’s a fun spa-like experience that you can have at home. Since I’ve been outside more, my skin has been breaking out and drier. The kit definitely helped hydrate and make my skin feel better. I also had to wash my hair since I took a really long walk today, so that’s why my hair’s down and looks wet in the after pic.

Tuesday/Thursday Night Time Routine!
Are you guys ready to take a look at my night time routine? 1st Slide = double cleanse 2nd Slide = tone, essence, refresher, exfoliant 3rd Slide = serums, night cream + 2 HA drops, eye cream 4th Slide = self care bonus! I double cleanse because I want to loosen up the oils and sebum that’s have built over the course of the day AND break down sunscreen. Unfortunately, the toner has fragrance and I’ve already noticed a slight tingly sensation since using it for a couple of weeks now. I don’t want to waste this product so after I finish it, I won’t be purchasing it again. I’ve already found a substitute to start using and I’ll post here/IG with my thoughts. The essence is amazing and the facial mist is lovely! The liquid exfoliant is AMAZING! I’ve been using it for a week or so and I can see a difference when I use it. I added it to my routine on Tues/Thurs and, if necessary, I use it as a spot treatment for any break outs due to my time of the month, stress, etc. As far as the Hyaluronic Acid goes, I like to add just a tiny bit more moisture in my routine at night hence the 2 drops. I put them into my hand and work it into my skin with my night cream. I do this as I don’t want to overdo it with with product especially since I use 2 serums. I know that the dewy skin cream by Tatcha is for normal to dry skin. However, I find that my skin enjoys this product as a night time moisturizer! The rose quartz vibrating face roller + massager was a steal! I got it off amazon and I love doing it every night to help me get ready for bed.
Silk Peony eye cream
This is one of my all time favorite eye creams along with the cru caudalie line. I have dark dry under eye circles and this baby makes it so I don’t have to wear concealer. It’s pricey. $60ish I believe I bought it during the Sephora sale so I got 20% off but I find its very worth it! 5/5 best eye cream! And look how cute the design of the little bottle is!!

Lightweight but Effective eye cream
BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream The Biossance Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream is a light weight yet moisturizing eye cream. I use it mainly at night and like it because I can tell it absorbs well. It’s a creamy feel but not thick at all which is great for me since I’m prone to milia and acne. It didn’t cause new breakouts, milia, or irritation on my sensitive, acne prone, combination skin so I’m happy about that. I hate the milia that I have so it is very important to me that I don’t get any more which is hard when you are looking for an eye cream. In fact, it helped my irritated skin around my eyes which I got sunburned (applied ahas and forgot to put on spf the next morning) running so they were flaky. I’ve had issues with some moisturizers not absorbing in the past on certain areas of my skin that have seborrheic dermatitis but I feel like this does a great job so I also use it around my lips since that is a problem area for me. The only reason it lost a star is because it’s really expensive! I still think it works well but the price is just a lot but maybe I’m just not use to buying eye creams idk. Rating: 4 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Some of my fav Eye Care 👁
🌟Clinique Pep Start Eye Cream CLINIQUE - Pep-Start Eye Cream This is liquid silk for your eyes! I'm a mom, a mom who doesn't get adequate sleep because I need my ME TIME after mini me's bedtime! I get the dark, puffy bags that make me feel like the Crypt Keeper with my both sunken and swollen sockets! I love the application ohhh And free of parabens and fragrance. Which skin type is it good for? •normal •oily •combination •dry •sensitive 🌟 OLEHENRIKSEN BANANA 🍌 EYE CREAM OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Eye Crème I really love this banana cream specially when I’m gonna use some concealer looks so bright and smooth, For some reason, my undereyes are puffy every morning no matter how much sleep I get and this product truly helps de-puff my eyes before I head out the door. I love how light and creamy it is, and it absorbs within minutes so I can put on my makeup almost immediately after I apply it, i read some bad reviews because some people have a bad reaction, so if your have sensitive skin try it first on your hand ( I have sensitive skin but didn’t have a bad reaction) Solutions for: •fine lines and wrinkles •dark circles •dryness 🌟 BELIF MOISTURIZER EYE BOMB belif - Eye Bomb gwp This is a wonderful product! I've used it for quite some time now, at least two years. It is not a heavy, greasy, formula. It is light but extremely moisturizing, which means, it helps my undereye darkness, helps prevent crows feet around my eyes, and it feels great as well. Put it in the fridge for a bit then apply it in and it feels so refreshing and cool! I also use this product above my eyes on my lids to prevent crepe skin from happening and to prep for eyeshadow or leave it on just by itself for a great pick me up! This product works. Which is more than I can say about other products I've tried (I've tried them all mostly). This is the only one that did not break my face out and a NOTICEABLE difference around and above my eyes. Formulated without: • parabens • sulfates • phthalates 🌟 SQUALANE + MARINE ALGAE EYE CREAM BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream I first got this as a sample at sephora and once I ran out, I noticed my dark circles slowly started to return.

What else you need to know? •Visibly lifts after the first application thanks to paracress extract. •Marine algae peptide complex minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in 7 days. •Squalane delivers long-lasting hydration and creates the perfect canvas for makeup. •This cream’s dreamy pink hue is inspired by the rare, nutrient-rich lakes found in Australia to California.

How much do you know about eye area skin care?
Under-eye area is one of the most my concern area. I am (26) a combination that have fine lines and dark circles under my eyes. Personally I didn’t pay a lot attention to skincare in my area before. I was mostly focusing on dark spot and acne scares as well as hyperpigmentation. Dark circles and fine lines start to appear. And it’s even works in winter times since every little fine line of wrinkles is emphasized by the effects of cold weather - low humidity and indoor central heating which increases the dehydration on the surface of your skin. Skin around eye area is really dedicated which makes it easy to leave damage signs like dehydration and strong UV light. This also makes it harder to fix and heal after it’s damaged. It’s highly recommended to include eye care in your skincare routine! AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE! Here are a few tips for eye care~ 1. Take care of your eye area on a daily basis 2. Maintain a gentle eye makeup removal (you may use eye pad, apply light pressure for around 15 seconds and gently wipe it off) 3. Avoid movements around eye area 4. Proper hydration And here are some common mistake about eye-care that you may want to avoid. 1. “Use facial cream to replace eye-cream.” Since skin around eye area is very dedicated some products works well on your face does not work the same way around your eye. Pick specific eye care treatment that has different molecules of nutrients and make it easy to be absorbed. 2. “Only do eye care at night.” Daily UV light and air pollutes are harmful and requires extra care through out the day. 3. “Apply thick layers of eye cream.” Too much nutrients may cause milia around eye area and hard to get rid off. These products are on the top of my eye care drugstore products that I’ve been constantly using and recommended to many of my friends. CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream This eye repair cream is so lovely worth every penny. I loved the formula-Niacinamide! It didn't have any harsh scents and my eyes felt fresh and awakened when I applied. Moisturizing and non-irritating. Additionally Leaves a great cooling sensation and appears to reduce puffiness. This is a good option if you are looking for a good drug store eye cream. OLAY - Pro X Wrinkle Fading Eye Cream This is another my most used eye cream. I love Olay as a brand and this cream worked anazing for me . It’s so hydrating but doesn’t make my eyes feel weighed down or oily. A little bit goes a long way. The product really lasts, adding to the value. I have noticed a big different in my under eye areas after using this daily for over 2 months. It visibly brightens up your eyes perfectly.
Thoughts on the PM Cream
Finally finished CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream This little baby contains: hyaluronic acid, Niacinamide, barrier replenishing ceramides and peptides. It designed to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, with its MVE Delivery Technology (that will continually release moisturizing ingredients for 24 hour hydration). Thoughts: It does have a non-greasy feel to the skin. It also leaves the skin feeling soft after applying and when waking up. It does not, however, feel as hydrating as the moisturizing cream does. I feel I have to put a lot more of the night cream on to not feel as dry. Which is why, overall, I prefer CeraVe's CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin With Pump (for thoughts on this one 👆🏻 refer to my 'Get Unready with me PM' post) CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream Additionally, I'm honestly not one to believe in eye creams as they are not only unnecessary but just thicker moisturizers. Plus most eye creams tend to break my under eye area out--even this one. I still do like it though because of it's amazing ingredients like Ceramides, HA, Niacinamide, and that it also delivers it's MVE Delivery Technology to the under eye. I will always love CeraVe because of its simplicity, ingredients and the fact that their products are fragrance free.💙💜

Bye Bye Fine Lines, My Eye Care Products
Skin type: combination, oily T-zone in summer/ dry in winter Eye problem: dark circle and fine lines When I was very young, I knew that the skin around the eyes is sensitive and thinner than another place’s skin. But I never thought about extra eye care, maybe because of my young age, I did not find any eye problems. When I started to notice dark circles and fine lines around my eyes, I was just an adult. I am used to staying up all night, and I feel very excited as soon as I get to the night. After two or three years, when I started to care about my appearance, I found that my dark circles problem, even fine lines problem was already severe. I searched for many information and found that dark circle cannot be removed, except surgery. But fine lines can be improved by hydration and massage. Here I want to introduce two products. Step one: ESTÉE LAUDER Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II Price: $72 for 30ml ESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II Actually, I bought it just because I need a serum to cooperate with the eye cream. This serum comes in a set with ESTÉE LAUDER Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex. It is lotion to serum type, mild and will not cause any redness or itchiness. It leaves my skin soft and hydrated. But nothing special. Step two: ESTÉE LAUDER Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex Price: $64 for 15ml ESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex It is a pink tone jelly type cream. Almost no scent. After using the serum, I would apply this eye cream as a double layer of hydration. Because of the silicones, it may not be absorbed well and may feel heavy. More suitable during winter/night times. But I like this feeling of coverage. When you apply it to skin around the eye, it will melt immediately. The slower it absorbs, the more moisturizing I feel. Overall, eye care is metaphysics. In addition to the puffiness and dry lines caused by dryness, eye problems mainly depend on medical surgery. Hydration is what we can do to improve these problems. From this point, this eye product match is good enough for me. But if you expect more, they may not be working.
Need to Relievie Wrinkles? Look Here!
I’m approaching my age of 24 and wrinkles already get on my face, especially around the eye area. I guess dry skin accelerates the rate of aging because the skin cannot get enough fluid for its natural hydrolipidic process therefore my face looks less plump and the expression line becomes more visible. When talking about aging, I have a treasure of secrets to share with you, among all effective ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, Marine DNA, etc. , I find one only available in first-tier skincare brands (I got persuaded into buying it when every day I saw its ad everywhere), Bifida Ferment Lysate, which is prevalent in the market in recent years. Bifida Ferment Lysate is a probiotic ingredient that’s used in one of the most iconic serums in the world, the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair. Based on manufacturer info it potently protects against UV-induced damage in the skin and helps with DNA repair. An Estee Lauder patent from 2009 also talks about DNA repair activity. Its efficacy has been confirmed by the journal Experimental Dermatology and I believe this is a 100 percent secured ingredient appropriate for postponing aging. But as for the use of this ingredient, there are several minefields you should try to avoid. Firstly, it cannot be mixed with retinol products as the latter will destroy the acid-base balance of the former, inactivating its function. Second, overuse of this product will lead to results vice versa. Therefore, applying the eye cream of this kind should not be too much. I usually apply Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair eye cream for PM (either one of the two bottles) and Aesop for AM. It works quite well, at night, skin gets recovered and in the day, eye area gets moisturized. The Estee Lauder series is rich in Bifida Ferment Lysate. After using its products for a while, my wrinkles become really relieved and I could never express more thanks to this ingredient.

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.

I’m HOOKED! Mango & Green Tea Firming Eye Mask
Now , I was never into eye creams because I felt they didn’t work. I recieved this Herbal Dynamics Beauty - MANGO & GREEN TEA FIRMING EYE MASK in a beauty subscription box (I forgot which ones 😆) and Ive been using it off and on for some months and I love it. Every time I used this product I was amazed at how soft my under eye area felt, the tingle afterward, non irritating, and my under eyes looked a lot brighter. This product reduces the appearance of dark circles with green tea and caffeine as apple and mango extracts calm and soothe puffiness. Nourishing mango butter and phospholipids hydrate. ✅PROS✅ ￼￼￼🎀The texture is smooth and very hydrating. When applied it has a tingle and you can feel it working. ￼￼￼￼￼🎀This is applied , left on for 3 minutes and then removed. I like that this is a quick treatment that can be done in the morning. ￼￼￼￼🎀I didn’t have any irritation with using this near the eye area which is important. ￼￼￼￼🎀I prefer eye mask over creams because I feel like over time you will see better results. ￼￼￼🎀Inexpensive this is only $20 currently it’s on sale for $15 👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼 as of June 7 2020 and they have a 20%off) I PURCHASED ANOTHER ONE 🤷🏼♀️😂 ￼￼🎀A little goes a long way ! This will last you some time. ￼￼🎀Smells delicious a light mango scent. ￼🎀Green Tea is great for the eye area , it helps with dark circles. ￼🎀 Not Tested on animals, Paraben Free, Phthalate Free NO CONS 🤷🏼♀️ If you are looking for an eye treatment/ mask I highly suggest giving Herbal Dynamic Beauty a try and they have other eye treatments.

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!

The Inkey List Caffeine Eye Serum
I must admit that I was super skeptical about any kind of eye cream, I thought it was overhyped. I was only certain I wanted to try something from the Inkey List because of their low price point and wanted to see if it compared to The Ordinary or The Good Molecules, to my surprise, it performed just as well! - I do also admit that while I don’t use this eye cream absolutely every morning and night like suggested, I do see quick benefits when I apply it on my no makeup days. I love prepping my skin in the morning an quickly tapping a small amount of this cream to depuff my under eyes in less that 2 mins. It makes me look well rested, even if that’s far from the truth. I can say that i have to be careful when tapping this around the contour of my eye because can start to sting if too close to my water line. - I would love to recommend this to anyone who is looking to depuff and energize their eye, quickly. I wish I was more consistent so that I can speak more towards the longer term benefits. At only $9.99 on Sephora you can’t beat it! It’s a great low budget purchase. I’ve purchased one for my mom who has been bugging me about her bags looking like laundry bags 😭

Decent eye serum 💕
This one is really just okay. It’s a brightening under eye cream so it’s meant to plump the under eye area and brighten. This one was just okay for me. I believe it has avocado oil in it, which doesn’t suit me. I have noticed a few acne spots after using it sometimes. It’s a creamy consistency but it settles sort of as a serum. There’s something about this that doesn’t feel like an everyday cream to me, and maybe that’s the acne situation for me. I would recommend this to someone that can handle oils better than I do. I do generally like itcosmetics actually. I love their cc cream so I thought I would like this but u don’t. I think there are definitely better eye serums out there.
