Under eye bags
Under eye bags feel like one of those perplexing skin conditions that never seem to go away. You can try adding in an eye cream that’s filled with vitamin C to brighten, green tea and aloe to soothe, and caffeine to tighten your skin temporarily. Keep reading to learn how to get rid of it.
More face (and hand and hair) serums from The Ordinary
The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% +EGCG Caffeine is said to relieve us from the pain and problem of puffiness and under eye bags or circles so I thought, I need some caffeine on my face, not just on my morning coffee. I used this at night together with the rest of all the other serums I use for specific skin concerns. I was trying this for about 2 weeks but I didn’t really see anything different on my skin. This serum is a bit blah for me. It didn’t really help in my pretty dark under eye situation nor did it do anything spectacular to my skin in order for me to keep using it. The Ordinary 100% Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil I purchased The Ordinary Cold Pressed Morrocan Argan Oil about 3 years ago and it gave me pimples and redness all over my face so I stopped using it, and instead, I used the product to moisturize my cuticles and the ends of my hair. It turned out amazing. So I bought this bottle for the exact same reason too. I think when taking care of our skin, it shouldn’t be limited to our face, neck, and decolletage. We should also take care of our hands and cuticles since the hands can easily give away our age (it’s one of the areas of our skin that ages the fastest, I read that online). I like using this oil all throughout the day for my cuticles, especially now that we wash our hands so often.

CCC 💐 Color Correct like a Champ
I was skeptical about color correcting at first. But it DEFINITELY works. The idea is that some colors “cancel” out each other. For example, if you put 🍊 orange on 🌊 blue, it’ll start muddying to brown. On the last slide, I put a color wheel. Colors that are opposite each other cancel each other out. So by applying this to your makeup, you can conceal any skin concerns you have more effectively than regular concealer can! I used the NYX - Color Correcting Concealer Palette for my whole face. Read on to see what to put where, and my review of the product. 🌵GREEN 🌵 COUNTERACTS RED (Acne & Rosacea) I put green concealer on my reddish cheeks, nose, and bumps. In this case, I targetted bug bites I had going down my mouth and forehead. 🌸 🍑🍊 🌹 PINK, PEACH, ORANGE, & RED FIGHT DARK CIRCLES AND DULLNESS Pink can be used for dark circles on fair skin. Red does the same for the deep skintones. All of these are on the reddish spectrum, and help contrast blue undertones common in eye bags. For myself, I used Peach on my under eye bags, and Pink in my main lid. My under eyes were much darker, so orange was better to counteract it. Note that 🌸 pink is also good at cancelling brown areas like sunspots. 💛 YELLOW 💛 BRIGHTENS DULL SKIN & FATIGUE Yellow counteracts purple, making it great for masking broken capillaries. It’s also good to brighten skin, a little bit like a highlighter. I put it in the middle of my eyebrows to brighten my eyebrow shadow. 💜 PURPLE 💜 FIGHTS SALLOW SKIN On the flip side, purple cancels yellow. We’re not talking about natural, warm, yellow-undertoned skin. This is more for those who lean more cool/ neutral, but have fatigue, sallowness, or anything else that makes your skin feel tired. I put it in the center of my forehead and near the jaw edges, where it’s effect was the same as yellow. 📝 PRODUCT REVIEW 📝 NYX’s color correcting palette has a runny, thin texture. I ran my finger on it in circles, and it didn’t kick up product- but melted into my finger. It was easy to blend, and didn’t clash with my foundation. I do have 2 critiques though: it got crepey in my undereyes, so I had to set it with powder. It also seems to have a white-ish base, making this best for fair skintones- fairer than even mine, I think. NYX did come out with more color correcting palettes for Light, Medium, and Deep skintones, which is good! Have any of you tried those editions? I’d love to hear your thoughts! 💓 FINAL TIPS ON COLOR CORRECTING 💓 I know some of these color correctors seem to contradict each other. Like do I want to cancel out yellow or purple? Or use pink or peach? The key is to target what YOU feel comfortable with. If your concern is swallow skin, use purple. If acne is your main concern, reach for green. My guide is just a suggestion based on what works for me. Take your time to test to see what makes you happy 💕

No more under eye bags w/ this serum!
Dr. Brant Needles No More NO MORE BAGGAGE is a “needle-free solution” to minimize under eye puffiness and dark circles. This serum states that it will also preserve a youthful appearance over time. The gel-like consistency is orange right out of the tube. Once you apply it, it sheers out to a salmon color. The texture and color nicely cancel out dark under eye bags. Like most of us, I am guilty of not getting enough sleep. When choosing this product I hoped that looking awake would make me feel more awake. I used this product for about 2 months when I looked and felt particularly exhausted. It works really well, however it does pill when paired with makeup. So it works better for a no makeup day. Ultimately, I stopped using it since I cannot wear it under makeup. However, it is worth it for days that I don’t wear makeup. So I would recommend this product to someone that doesn’t wear a lot of makeup or someone that’s looking for a little pick me up on those no-makeup days.

I’ve tried numerous roller balls and ointments that never worked. This is the biggest challenge on my face. Any sugggestions for highly effective products I should try before signing up for under eye surgery? Thank you for any help!!
Best Self correcting eye cream
I’m a 28 year old accountant and with busy season and long hours I looked like Count Dracula. I was tired, had dark purple bags under my eyes and was sleep deprived. This product totally changed my look. My dark circles and under eye wrinkles are drastically reduced and my eyes look alert and supple. I’m so happy that I stumbled upon this drug store brand as opposed to another brand because it really works. The one small 1.7oz has lasted me about 3 months. I use morning and night after I cleanse and tone. I definitely recommend . In the photos above I’m wearing less make up in the “after” photo but my eyes aren’t as wrinkly.
