Dorothy Lee 1930's New Years PictureDecember 26th- January 2nd

I hope everyone had a wonderful, safe New Year’s. Here’s to 2011! I really hope that this will be a good year; I’m feeling optimistic. I’m feeling motivated. 2010 was painfully uneventful and frankly, disappointing personally, but it taught me a few lessons. I hope everyone’s year is filled with happiness, productivity, and frizz-free hair. I know the this year will be frizz-free since Carrie from Eyeliner On A Cat talked me into buying… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream Review

Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream Review

I haven’t found an eye cream that I love. At this stage of my life eye gels are what I want. My eye concerns include darkness and puffiness. I have awful allergies and really all I can do about it is apply concealer. I think I seem to prefer eye gels or serums because I assume they help with puffiness. They usually have a cooling sensation that tricks me into believing that it is “working”. Anyways, I’m finding that I need… Continue reading | 8 Comments

Dior HydrAction Hydra-Protective Eye Creme SPF 20 Review

Dior Eye Cream

I would sum this eye cream up as a great preventive eye cream for normal skin. A “starter” eye cream as I call them. I’ve been using it since the beginning of summer. It is odorless, very creamy, fast absorbing, no stingy despite its SPF of 20. It does have a “souffle” like texture. It’s nice. However, it doesn’t do very much other than “protect” and moisturize. It has done nothing for dark circles. As far as fine lines goes, which this product claims to “reduce”, I haven’t… Continue reading | 1 Comment

L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Eye Balm Review

L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Eye Balm doesn’t do much, but I like it.

Let’s start with some background info: I’m in my 20’s and don’t have any deep lines. I’m more about preventive care. I have super dry skin so I’m always looking for moisturizing cream.

I use this at night. It does help with lines that come from dryness, especially in the winter. A little bit of it goes a long way. It’s rich, smooth and creamy. It hasn’t irritated my eyes or migrated to other areas… Continue reading | 3 Comments

Cosmedicine Opti-Mologist Eye Cream with Light Diffusers is Like Glue

I don’t like to go around dogging products but I really hated this stuff. We are entitled to our opinion, right? I got this stuff and I thought it was defective and that is never a good sign. I thought there is no way this is the stuff that lots of people are raving about. It felt like smearing super glue under my eyes. It wouldn’t absorb and was sticky. It would “tug” at my undereye area. I felt like I was creating wrinkles by using this. In fact, super glue would of… Continue reading
