It’s all about eyes today baby!!
Skincare is such a big part of my mornings and nights, I think I need to start doing more beauty posts on here more often! I’ve been testing out some new products since the holidays, and a few have stuck to my routine, all for very good reason. This post I’ll be focusing on what I’ve been loving to use for around my EYES. My mom is such a wrinkle fighting freak, and especially so when it comes to the eye area. She’s been teaching me methods of anti aging since I was like 12, but I feel like I haven’t been taking any of her tips seriously until just a few years ago. One cannot stress the importance of a good eye cream. I even just got my boyfriend one because men need help in that area just like us! We are all exposed to the same stuff! The skin around our eyes are much more thin and sensitive, so they need extra love and care. But because they are more sensitive, one must be picky when trying to find the right one. I’ve had bad experiences with eye creams that burned, made me teary, or were just were straight up ineffective. Lucky, I was introduced to all natural beauty line called True Botanicals. Many of its products are available at the all natural, all organic beauty store Follain. Since creams seem to be too heavy for me, I thought that maybe a serum would be better . . . they are lighter in feel, but able to absorb deep where it needs it most. True Botanicals Deep Repair Eye Serum ended up being my perfect match. It’s super concentrated, so all I need is a drop and that’s enough to go around for both eyes. It’s main ingredients are Carrot Seed Oil, Blackberry Seed Oil and Tuberose Stem Cells amongst other all organic, natural ingredients that are non-toxic. All the oils are high in antioxidants that protect the skin from harmful elements, with anti-aging effects. I’m literally obsessed with this serum. I’m not sure there is any going back from here.
During the day, I use Onomie A.C.E Illuminating Eye Treatment. It’s been a favorite of mine for months, and I’m still sticking with it. I’ve included it in a previous beauty post, but I love it so much that I’m featuring it again. The shade I use is Lovelace. I love how lightweight it feels (it comes out like a mousse), and it’s exactly the perfect amount of pearliness to hide my under eye circles. It contains 10% Vitamin C which is proven to fight free radicals and improve texture. That way I’m covered all day long.
And last but not least, is my much loved facial moisturizer, La Mer’s The Moisturizing Soft Lotion, which I use all over morning and night including the area around my eyes and on my eyelids. It’s another lightweight product I adore. And a little goes a long way. La Mer’s Miracle Broth is such a lifesaver, and I learned so much about the brand since taking a tour of their lab and product facility last year. It was eye opening. My skin has never felt more moisturized and youthful as an adult before I started using this. It’s the perfect moisturizing base before I apply my eye creams.
So there you have it. My top three skincare and eye products that have been keeping winter skin at bay. Let me know what you guys think if you ever get the chance to try them out!
