HEY BIG SPENDER: AN EYE CREAM JUST FOR YOU

HEY BIG SPENDER: AN EYE CREAM JUST FOR YOU

Everyone knows that I am a HUGE advocate for affordable products. I really do believe that there are some beauty necessities that you can get at your local grocery store that work wonders on your skin. If you read my post on Olay’s eye cream, than you know that I don’t necessarily believe that you have to go big or go home (when it comes to beauty products atleast). The Olay cream won’t even cost you 20 bucks, but at the same time, I know there are skeptics out there that have a loyalty towards luxury products. I don’t blame you because I have the same weakness at times. In my trial and error days, I’ve tried a few other night creams that have done wonders for me, and I mention one in particular in the Olay blog post. Here it is:

Shiseido Future Solutions LX

You might be asking yourself, why would anyone spend $130 on ANY product, let alone a cream? Trust me, I was a skeptic myself until I got a sample of this product and fell in love.  So, what will this product do for you?

  • Adds Hydration
  • Increase Firmness
  • Anti-aging
  • Reduce Appearance of Dark Circles
  • Diminish the Appearance of Wrinkles

For me, the best part about the cream was the treatment it gave to dark circles. Also, Future Solutions LX has a dual purpose; it works as an eye and lip cream. The rare, luxurious ingredients carry the latest in Japanese skincare advancements. For anyone else (like myself) that has a darker pigmentation around their lips, I recommend this product. Go splurge on yourself and try Shiseido Future Solution LX!

SPLURGE WORTHY: ROSE OIL

SPLURGE WORTHY: ROSE OIL

I’ve struggled with dry skin my whole life and am continuously looking for products to help with the issue. I recently purchased a product that I have found to drastically make a difference in the way my skin feels. If you feel let down by all the moisturizers out there that promise to stop your face from flaking (like me), I highly recommend this product: 

REN Rose O12 Ultra-Moisture Serum:

The entire REN line is great because it doesn’t contain any synthetic ingredients. They sell everything from body washes to bath oils. What I particularly liked about the face serum was how noticeably moisturized my face looked the next day. I know we all have a million different products we use during our nightly routine and don’t care to add one more on to the list, but this one is worth it for those who struggle with dry skin.

When to apply? I put it on right after I wash my face and before I put my night and eye cream on (make sure to let the serum set for a few seconds before applying your night cream). I’m not going to lie, the serum is def pricey but it will last forever! One dab is all you need every night- even the driest skin shouldn’t be drenched in oil. Just push down on the cap once in your palm, rub your hands together and lather your face. I wouldn’t recommend putting the serum around your eyes. Leave the eye dryness to the eye cream

SIDENOTE: The serum def has a rosey scent to it. I happen to like it, but if you’re planning on ordering this online and aren’t a fan of the natural fragrance of flowers, I would go into the store and check it out first!

What do YOU do to reduce dryness?
