Eye cream. otherwise understood as “hope in a jar.” It’s been on my mind lately since every time I look in the mirror I question if I’ve always looked this tired? Because, duuuude! — I can’t keep in mind the last time I saw my reflection as well as thought, “Wow, I look like I slept well.”

Hence the present eye cream obsession.


Looking for a new eye cream

I’d been utilizing Clarins super Restorative overall Eye Concentrate since last fall, however I just recently ran out. It was doing a quite great job…but it wasn’t rocking my world. as well as that’s what I want! I want something that’s going to totally rock my world.

Story of our lives, right?

If I try as well as fail, I figure I can always go back to Clarins…

(BTW, if there’s one you swear by, hook a feline woman up! The extremely dry skin around my eyes preemptively thanks you.)

To assist me on this search, I likewise asked on Instagram, as well as right here were the recommendations I saw the most:

OLEHENRIKSEN Banana bright Eye Crème ($38)
This one looks promising, as well as I like the price! It has vitamin C, which I’ve had fantastic results with in eye creams before.

I’m not sure about the jar, though… I’ve checked out that vitamin C-containing products are most efficient when they are available in bundles that seal out air as well as light.

ESTÉE LAUDER advanced night repair work Eye Concentrate Matrix ($69)
A few people mentioned this one, including my buddy Jessica, who swears by it, so I’m keen to try it, like, now. She states it layers well under concealer as well as hits lots of the anti-aging bells as well as whistles (which I want!!!).

KIEHL’S since 1851 Creamy Eye treatment with Avocado ($29)
Lots of dry-skinned women like this as well as phone call it their “go to.” looks worth a try, as well as the cost is right, however I desire it contained more stuff for fine lines, though.

I’m leaning toward the Banana bright one…but I wanna hear what you like before I commit.

To utilize fillers, or not to utilize fillers — that is the question

Sometimes I question if eye cream is just a squander of time as well as money. Not gonna lie, I’ve been believing about fillers. They’re supposed to truly assist with dark circles, although I acknowledge that my evidence for this is anecdotal…from YouTube videos.

Right now I don’t utilize any type of fillers, mainly since I have this weird interior struggle happening where part of me is like, “You know, you’ve made it this far in life. let your deal with be the map of your journey. You don’t requirement to cave to society’s pressures to look young. EFF THOSE antiquated, unattainable ideals, as well as rage against the machine.” Etc., etc.

I likewise believe about what type of message it sends to Connor.

Plus, my biggest fear (other than the needles…) is that I won’t acknowledge myself in the mirror. would I still look like me? might I still make the exact same goofy expressions I make when I tell stories about Tabs waking me up in the middle of the night by kneading my hair or jumping off my stomach? Or will my deal with be frozen into an emotionless, immobile mask?

I just don’t know, however I’m curious. I question if it would save time as well as money in the end…

As of right now, though, I’m not rather curious enough. perhaps in a year or two… I’m leaving the door open.

Try this if your concealer routinely disappears

While we’re on the subject of that area under our eyes, here’s something that occurred to me the other day: If you discover that your concealer (and/or whatever makeup you wear on your lids, for that matter) pulls a disappearing act by the end of the day, try trading your eye cream for something else, since some eye creams work much better under makeup than others.

This got me yesterday. I tried Nyakio Red Ginseng Line Smoothing Eye as well as Lip cream for the very first time (it’s rich as well as hydrating). then I put eye makeup on top… Bloop, bloop, bloop. Within a few hours, whatever was like a downhill ski run! Sliding, sliding, moving down!

This never occurs to me when I utilize Clarins super Restorative overall Eye Concentrate…

Aaand that’s it for today’s rambling thoughts.
