First Aid Beauty (F•A•B)
Detox Eye Roller
*The cool metal roller ball feels amazing as it re-distributes lymphatic build-up from underneath the eyes, resulting in less puffy/baggy looking skin. Then the caffeine rich formula constricts the fine blood vessels that cause dark undereye circles while Hyaluronate and advanced peptides smooth out the appearance of fine lines. This product is built to release the excess moisture that causes puffiness, so it's not very emollient. If the under eye area is dry, you'll need to apply a hydrating eye cream after the Detox Eye Roller has done it's job.
Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels
*Has the body collapsed in your makeup chair just arrived on a red-eye flight (or never made it home from their night out)? No worries, these cooling transdermal gel patches infuse the eye area with concentrated doses of Peptides and botanicals to calm, firm and reduce irritation. So …throw a gallon of Rohto Ice Eyedrops in their eyes and firmly plant a set of Skyn's eye gels under their peepers to beat the daylights out of puffy, rough and ruddy undereyes in under 10 minutes...that's an outrageous ocular occurrence!
Regenerist Eye Lifting Serum
*This budget loving drugstore beauty find totally delivers on it's claims to visibly lift, smooth and brighten the entire eye area (including eyelids). The silky serum is a mixture of silicones, niacinamide (to help increase skin’s ceramide and fatty acid content), antioxidants, anti-irritants and an exclusive concentrated amino-peptide complex. The addition of cosmetic grade mica illuminates and brightens to help minimize the appearance of dark circles.
Wrinkle Revenge rescue & protect eye balm
*DD is my 'go-to' brand for high performance instant gratification skincare solutions! Wrinkle Revenge is definitely a BIG winner with a sophisticated complex of ingredients to pound down the puffiness. It contains a perfect storm of state of the art ingredients that rapidly shrink bags due to fluid build-up, firms the skin, fights free radical damage, moisturizes delicate skin around the eye and reduces irritation. What more can you ask for in an eye cream?
Extreme Lift Eye
*Definitely a luxury eye treatment …but the results justify every penny. I don't remember ever using an eye treatment that created such dramatic firming results so fast (under 5 minutes). The startling results are attributed to Pepha®-Tight, a skin-strengthening algae extract which creates an instant tightening effect that also smoothes the appearance of fine lines. They pair this powerhouse with Gatuline, a plant based extract used to relax muscles so skin appears visibly smoother.
On a personal note: Due to genetics and age, my brow bone area and eyelids are a little saggy - but not when I use this stuff (I'm just sayin').
Dr Dennis Gross Skincare
Lift & Lighten Eye Cream
*This eye cream is chock full of antioxidants and hydrators - but the attention getter is pearl powder, which offers numerous skincare benefits AND gentle reflective capabilities that diminish the appearance of dark circles, discoloration and fine lines. The potent cocktail of essential moisture, free-radical protection and light diffusers creates a firmer, brighter, more youthful under-eye appearance almost immediately.
Hydro-Dynamic™ Ultimate Moisture for eyes
*Sometimes the undereye area becomes Sahara Desert dry thanks to environmental stress. It stems from frequent flying, controlled air environments, over indulging (hic) and under hydrating …you get the picture. It feels tight and uncomfortable and shows EVERY line and crease. That's when you need serious, continuous moisture - which is what Hydro-Dynamic does best. A hefty dose of Hyaluronic Acid boosts skin’s moisture reserve, while Osmolytes maintain the renewed fluid balance for up to 8 hours.
