A come to you today with a bold statement: I am not sure my personal skin care routine will ever be complete without the classic Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Recovery Complex. The formula is so outstanding in fighting puffiness and dark circles. This silky gel is proven to reduce signs of aging like wrinkles as well.
Immediately, I notice a smoother appearance under my eyes. The puffiness subsides and my dry skin soaks up the application for a more youthful appearance. Over time, it can help with dark circles and uneven skin tones. I love the cushioned feel without being oily. I use just a small amount on my pinky and blend around my eye at night. I guess it comes with an applicator, but, per usual, I accidentally threw it away. Oops.
Available at Nordstrom.
I’m one of those freaks that needs loads of sleep. If I had my druthers, I’d get nine hours every night. But we know sometimes that just isn’t possible. I used to be able to fake that “rested” look with my beloved NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer, but I’ll be darned if I am starting to need some extra help as I approach the big 3-5.
While I have tried tons of eye creams and masks, I haven’t really found something that provides a more immediate result. Enter Chantecaille’s Gold Energizing Eye Recovery Mask. While I feel like I should note this is truly a luxury item, it is both a short-term solution and long-term investment.
Using all natural seaweed as a base, the formula is infused with an anti-aging gold serum. The transparent gel masks provide a cooling sensation. After one use, lines are minimized and puffiness is gone. The revealed radiant skin replaces dark circles. Longer term, gold works to protect DNA and boost collagen.
I am wearing my third set of masks as I type and one of my favorite features is that they disappear on your face. I have no fear of frightening the FedEx man if he happens to knock on the door. I also appreciate the the small crescents adhere to the under eye area without slipping and sliding. They stay put for the entire recommended 20 minutes.
Paraben free, fragrance free, petrochemical free and cruelty free. Includes 8 pairs of eye gels per box. Apply 3-4 times a week.
