Product Review: Clarins Paris Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate

Ladies, if you travel, have children, work insane hours or all of the above; you know what I’m speaking of when I talk about hard to remedy dark under eye circles. You understand the desperation, and willingness to open your wallet for any product that may help you, even just a little bit.

I have an attachment to Clarins products. I’m not sure why exactly, but some of them seem to work small miracles and some are just normal products. (Like every face care line) I am addicted to Clarins double serum. That stuff is AWESOME!

I found this must-have addition to my travel kit when I took a solid glance at myself in the mirror while at work, and it was date-night. No joke, I ran to the closest department store that carried Clarins products, made a bee-line for the Clarins rep and said ‘gimme the strongest eye stuff you’ve got!’ and this was the result.

Noticeable results with eye creams have to be one of the trickiest things to figure out because so many other factors come into play; diet, sleep, stress, hydration, etc. That said, I must admit that I can’t really see a super improvement in under dark eye bags, but the puffiness has subsided and that is a good thing. HOWEVER, this eye cream is not solely focused on under eye bags and darkness. When I look in the mirror in the mornings (I currently use this day and night) I CAN see a difference in developing crows feet and smile lines. Thankfully, this elixir seems to be slowing the aging process of the skin around my eyes. So, if you’re battling aging, I would absolutely recommend this product. I also recommend the double serum for face. Although a bit on the pricey side, it’s worth every penny, especially if you have dry skin. (If you have oily skin, its just a matter of time before a break-out).

My main problem at this point is dark under-eye circles, so I will continue my quest for the perfect eye-cream which battles under eye circles, puffiness and combats aging at the same time.

The search will be cont’d…slowly, since most products have been purchased by myself and posts are unsponsored.

Which eye creams do you prefer? What are the main improvements you are searching for when you purchase eye creams? I look forward to your feedback 🙂

Product Review: Yves Saint Laurent Forever Youth Liberator -Eyes

I am finding myself to be rather partial to this product. Granted, it is a bit of an investment, but as a lady in her late 30’s, I can easily tell you that an investment into skincare is a solid investment indeed!

Similar to the Clarins eye cream that I loved, the difference seems to be subtle…until you stop using it. After a 3 days forced break from this eye cream, I looked in the mirror and realized that OK, this is actually making a HUGE difference!

Although I’ve had a problem with dark circles under my eye area this year, Forever eye cream by YSL has actually made a difference. The lines and darkness are reduced, but not eliminated. I have to say though, that I would much rather look in the mirror and see the slightly tired eyes of a late 20 something, as opposed to the dark exhausted eyes of a 50 year old staring back at me. This made that difference, so I recommend it!

Runs at $100 and can be purchased in many upscale department stores or online by clicking here.

What are some of your to-swear-by eye products?

Thanks for reading!
