Hi lovelies! I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving weekend. ^-^ My weekend was extremely busy, besides the holiday I also had my brothers wedding this weekend. It was a beautiful ceremony.
Today I will be reviewing Lancome’s “visionnaire yeux” eye balm. I received a sample through Sephora and I liked it so much that I went out and bought it to thoroughly try it out and give my wonderful followers my thoughts on it.
Visionnaire is supposed to reduce the appearance of crows feet, puffiness, and fatigue. I could already see a difference from the moment I tried it the first time.
It has a Hydrablur technology that blurs away imperfections. It also helps reduce the appearance of dark circles and wrinkles. To achieve these results it does take about 4 to 6 weeks of use.
It is good for all skin types and doesn’t contain any parabens or phthalates. I applied this religiously every morning and night. The only down side to this product is that Lancome only offers a .5 fl oz bottle for $65. The quantity is expected out of an eye cream but the price point is off for me. I would actually rather spend an extra $10 to purchase Bobbi Brown’s extra repair eye cream.
Even though I really liked this product and it was good. It also backed up its claims, it just did not have that wow factor for me. There are a lot of expectations for eye creams and this one just fell short. However, I still recommend this product to those that want to give it a try. For those that just don’t have that kind of money or want an extra rich and creamy eye cream then I would pass on this.
Leave me a comment below on what guys think. Would you try this product and if you did what are your thoughts? Also if there are any eye creams that you guys would like me to review let me know. I am more than willing to be a guinea for my lovely followers. Till next time everyone. xoxox
Hi babes! I’m here to review the eye cloths from Rodan + Fields. These eye cloths are a makeup remover. While you can you any makeup remover for the eyes, I personally like to use make removers that are specially formulated for the eye area. The skin around the eyes is very delicate and its important to take care of it.
Let me tell you a little bit about this product. The eye cloths are supposed to gently remove makeup around the eyes while revealing younger and firmer looking skin. This is a two and one product that is supposed to remove that stubborn eye makeup while combating signs of aging. Each cloth contains peptides that help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s also supposed to help with tired eyes and reduce puffiness.
This product for me was a definite no for me. First I where contacts and that does not have an effect on my contacts. However, that is the only positive thing I can say about it. It does not gently remove eye makeup. I have to rub my eyes very hard in order to get that stubborn eye liner off. This didn’t make me feel comfortable at all. The wipes are textured and gritty. I felt like I was exfoliating my eye area rather than soothing it.
You get 30 cloths in the pack and it cost $32. That’s a little over a dollar for each wipe which is not worth it. Maybe it would have been if it backed up its claims. I was sadly disappointed with this product. So far the best eye makeup remover that I always go back to is “Just release me” from philosophy.com and it’s currently on sale for $13.30 original price at $19. It last me for six months and worth every penny. It oil based and safe for contact users. So, save your money and skip Rodan+Fields eye cloths. Till next time lovelies! xoxo
Hello lovelies! I’ll be reviewing another Miss Spa product. This time it will be the hydrogel treatment. Unlike my previous post about the Miss Spa gold mask, this I liked a lot. This product is to help alleviate the appearance of puffiness and signs of fatigue. So, if you have had a long night this is definitely something you’re going to want to try. If you’re like me and have dark circles this will also help with that. Now I do recommended doing this treatment twice a week for a couple of weeks, to notice a change with the dark circles.
Now for whats in this little treasure. It has pearl extract and vitamins A, B, C, and E. It is sulfate free, paraben free, and fragrance free. I don’t know about you but I really appreciate not having anything scented when it is that close to my eyes. The last thing anyone needs is an allergy attack. Oh, and did I mention it is not tested on animals. It feels like it just becomes part of your skin and it leaves it feeling rich and supple. The skin around the eyes is so thin and is usually the first place you lose elasticity that giving it that extra moisture is what gives this product a thumbs up for me.
You’re going to want to use this product immediately after opening it. Make sure you pat it on to clean and dry skin underneath the eye area. You’re going to want to gently press on to make sure it doesn’t slide off. You leave it on for 45 minutes. I suggest you lay back and relax and binge watch something on Netflix. Once your time is up, remove the pads and discard them. Pat the remaining solution onto the skin, try avoiding contact with your eyes because it will cause irritation. Like I always say for the best results make sure to use as directed, the directions are there for a reason. Till next time lovelies! Stay beautiful! xoxo
It’s never too early to begin great skincare.
It’s never too early to start a good skincare regimen that targets the first signs of aging. Think of it as preventive care for your skin. Usually the first signs of aging start in the eye area. I mean it makes sense, since it is the most delicate part of skin. The wonderful people over at Exuviance sent me these eye masques, which I totally love. The price for this is $49 and it the box comes 12 packs. This is definitely one of those products that is worth the money.
The eye masques firm and hydrate the eye area while enhancing cell renewal and minimizing the look of fine lines and wrinkles with Lactobionic Acid and Vitamins A, C and E.
- Lactobionic Acid refreshes and soothes
- Bionic treatment firms skin around the eyes, reducing the appearance of crow’s feet
- Vitamins A, C, and E provide antioxidant protection and restore skin
Make a spa day out of it! Now if you wanted to kick things up a notch they have a 3 step systems that works implement the eye masques in the routine.
Of course always start with a clean face. Make sure the eye area is thouroughly dry. First start with the Depuffing eye serum. You see a major reduction in puffiness around the eyes within 4 hours. It targets puffiness and undereye bag. It also helps firm the skin around the eye area, including those lids. The micro-roller helps increase the circulation which helps with the production of collagen. There is caffeine in it which helps invigorate the skin. With hints of Chamomile, Green Tea and Cucumber refresh the eye area.
You follow with the Intensive Eye Treatment Masque. Remove the masques from the packet. There should be 2 inside. They are saturated but no worries, it won’t get in those lovely eyes. Gently place the pads underneath each eye. I put it as close as I could to my water line without becoming uncomfortable. Smooth the pads onto the skin. The stick on pretty good, so, you could go on about your business. Leave the pads on for 10 minutes. Gently remove the pads and discard; gently massage any excess solution.
Final step would be to follow up with the Hydrating eye complex. I love this stuff!! It’s super light and if your like me and suffer from dark circles; then you’re going to want to include this in your regimen.
- Formulated with Gluconolactone and Lactobionic Acid (PHAs)
- Provides antioxidant protection
- Contains Vitamins A, C, and E
- Hydrates with a soothing blend of botanicals
I definitely recommend the all three products. However, if your looking just to refresh those pretty lids the masques alone will do the trick. As always I recommend you use as directed; which using the eye masques 2 to 3 times a week.
Still not sure? Below I posted a before (top) and after (bottom):
As always lovelies tell me what you think? Share you thoughts and comments. Till another time! xoxo
Let me start with anything cucumber is so soothing for me. Naturally I would want to try “Cool Eyes” from “One bath & body”. I naturally have dark circles (damn those genes). It works like a fiber mask but for your eyes. When you open the packaging, there are two small little masks that go over your lids. It is already saturated in the formulation. One bath & body designed the little mini masks quite well. They resembled little cucumbers that over your eyes. The directions were pretty vague as to what to do once you take them off. I just lightly rubbed it in, in circular motions. Overall it was a pretty good product. My eyes felt refreshed, I’m not all too sure on the combating those under eye halos though.
