Overdoing it in the sun can make the skin around your eyes sag and wrinkle as well as cause dehydration of the skin. A mineral-based or homemade sunscreen, a good pair of UV-protected sunglasses, and a hat can do wonders to help protect your face from those harmful rays, ultimately keeping the skin around the eyes from wrinkling and darkening due to the effects of the sun.

Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are usually derived from fruits (like apples and oranges) or sugars. They are exfoliation powerhouses, and multiple studies have demonstrated their effectiveness in improving the look of aging skin. Wrinkles form for a variety of reasons, but photoaging (damage to the skin from sunlight) is a big one. Sunlight breaks down collagen and elastin in the skin — two proteins which help the skin connect and remain flexible. As they break down, the skin slowly becomes weaker and less supple, leading to drooping.
You simply run the tool across your face in a stroking motion, and it sends microcurrents that sculpt and contour your muscles. "It's like putting on a pair of Spanx," says Zeichner. "It helps thicken the skin to better hold in the bulging fat below." You're more likely to see long-lasting results with consistent use, but the instantaneous lift is noticeable.
Successful subscription-box companies, including Birchbox, Dollar Shave Club and Stitch Fix, have taken a “customer-first approach,” said Tien Tzuo, founder and CEO of Zuora, a software company specializing in subscription businesses, in an email. These companies have also created “fun, compelling subscription experiences that get smarter and smarter over time.” Part of that, Tzuo said, was the importance of a consumer brand knowing and understanding their customer.
I never received my December box also… they told me I never paid for it when I called into customer service and talked to one of the customer service reps and gave her my card number. They told.me they were out of the December box. I just got a email about my refund and then one about my January box… I wonder if they are refunding people about the December box or a missing product… hopefully they work everything out soon. I never received my snack nation boxes also…

Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and beta hydroxy acids or other chemical peels. These help to dissolve the intracellular "glue" that holds dead cells together on the skin. The use of this type of product on a daily basis gradually enhances the exfoliation of the epidermis. This exposes newer skin cells and can help improve appearance. AHAs may irritate some skin, causing redness and flaking.[medical citation needed]


Im 12 about to be 13 in less than two weeks and my eye bags and dark circles are horrendus. I dont smile in any photos because it shows my horrible eye bags. It dosent help that im pale so my dark circles stand out. I tried special creams and even cold spoons and tea bags, nothing works. Is there anything that will help me not have black luggage under my eyes?
One of the best items to invest in is a good anti-aging cream or moisturizer. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommends beginning with a sunscreen and moisturizer to help offset premature skin aging. Once you find a product that works for your skin type, the AAD also advises taking advantage of its consumer hotline (check the product label) to ask questions about whether the product you’re considering is hypoallergenic and doesn’t cause acne.
While we like to think we actually get better with age, we totally understand that there might be some pesky skin changes you want to address as the years pass. It's difficult to pinpoint exactly when to start incorporating anti-aging products into your routine, so we chatted with one of our favorite experts, Genevieve Vielbig, R.N., B.S.N., C.A.N.S., to get the scoop on the best approach to wrinkle creams.
Worst experience ever. It has now been a month and a half and I still have not received my box. I have made numerous phone calls to customer service and each time they were curt and rude. I finally got a tracking number after different reps kept telling me different stories. The tracking information said it would be updated within 42 to 48 hours. Going on 96 hours tracking information has still not updated so I called customer service. The gentleman that picked up the phone treated me like I was an imbecile.

Worst experience with a beauty box subscription I have ever had. The first box did not even come with any of the detailed products for my first month and I only recieved four products total that was supposedly including the mystery gift. I did not recieve my first box until they took out a second payment for another month. They say that its only first month with a later ship date...nope thats a lie third month and I still dont reciece my box until almost into anothet month or into the next month. Here is the funny thing, no one knows where your box is either, i have been lied to and just flat out told I dont know. I ecen had a cusyomer service person hang up the phone on me at one point asking questions on my first month of the subscription because she was too busy. It was all of 5 minutes trying to understand how there box works as oppose to all of my many other beauty box subscriptions. With all the conveniences dont believe when they tell you they will send you a previous box to accomodate for all the inconveniences, I waited for three months for the september 2017 box I never got. Finally I spoke with the supervisor Josie and well now I understand why the customer service is in shambles I think she was the worst to have a title of supervisor in customer service of all. I would much rather wait on an email from boxycharm, or chat with birchbox than to email with no responses for a week and when you call get the rudest service I have ever experienced. Gave me such a bad taste in my mouth for allure in general ew! Dobt do it go for a box that has the same amoubt of product (sample size) for 5 dollars less like ipsy, sephora play, or birchbox. Save your time and heartache. 

I decided to subscribe to Allure B. Box because I thought it would be a great way to receive samples and beauty products to try out. I started Oct. 5 2018 and they charged me right away. I never heard back on shipping for that month. Oct 16 I sent an email and on Oct 18 I received a tracking email. Needless to say I received the box very late Oct. I decided to cancel, with an email, I was offered to please stay and they would do the next “4 boxes at $10 ea.” Instead of $15. I accepted, this was Oct 31. On Nov. 1st they charged my card for the Nov. box. ALL November I waited, no emails, no information. I got an email just advising a “November Round up” for those who did get the box can review the products. I sent an email no response, so I decided to call. I spoke to a rep saying she didn’t understand why I had received one. On their end it showed it had not left “the warehouse” but she’d message a supervisor who’d get back to me.


I am a subscriber to It cosmetics, I like it because the makeup itself is light and provides full coverage without caking and it looks fresh all day and I have never heard of the other listed makeup boxes. I like that I can choose how many items I want and which items I receive and pay for it over 3 months. I also like that I know what I am getting and can order what I want or need, that they are also coming out with new products and expanding the line so you need to check with the website if you need or want something else. But the price is a little high, and they do not have online ordering to change and update what you receive. You have to call them but the customer service people were very knowledgeable, professional and accommodating. They say you can cancel at any time.
What can you do? There’s not a lot you can do for bags, though fillers may help raise the skin to counteract sagginess. Essentially, these fillers elevate the surrounding skin to the level of the fat to make the texture smooth and uniform again. Radiofrequency treatment is another alternative to tighten and smooth the area. The procedure heats the skin to induce collagen and elastin formation. Dr. Engelman recommends four rounds per treatment, and once a year maintenance. Each session costs around $500 to $600.
“When it comes to combating wrinkles, I always recommend incorporating retinol into your skin care routine. This is an excellent way to add the effective ingredient to your daily regimen without breaking the bank. The silky formula is proven to diminish the look of fine line lines and wrinkles and it is even suitable to use under makeup,” said celebrity makeup artist Erin Guth.
Over the course of 12 hours I have gotten 3 conflicting emails from Allure regarding my January box. First I was told they cancelled my box and refunded my money, then they told me they are running behind and i will get in next week, then i get an oopsie we sent you wrong information i have been charged and they will send out a tracking number next week.
Use gentle strokes on the eye area. I like to use light pressure and plenty of serum/cream. Use light, shimmering tapping (imagine doing jazz fingers). Be sure to press the serum into the skin instead of just pushing it around. Finish up by drawing a horizontal figure 8 (or the infinity symbol!) around the boundaries of your eye area–this is good for lymphatic drainage.

Ok I just got off the phone with customer service regarding the delay of the box and the email. I received this email and was pretty confused. Customer service states the email was a glitch, it was a mistake and should never have gone out. There are no replacement boxes or refunds, that the January boxes have not mailed out because they are waiting on the products to arrive. (Which seems strange and inaccurate because I literally just read in this feed where a lady already recieved her box with the Sunday Riley products). I really hate to act entitled, but I’ve been with Allure for years now, if it is in fact a screw up they have a duty to tell us, and they have a duty to fulfil subscriptions by seniority.
I absolutely love Allure. Their boxes are always so well done and the value is amazing. I’ve never had any issues with their customer service. The key is to call. It takes less time to call than to email. Their CS has alaways been great and friendly. I’ve never had a problem canceling. They have the best products and the value is so great. Thanks Allure. I will be a customer for as long as you have a box and magazine.
The skin-care internet is full of dubious DIY remedies, but the ones that suggest black tea as an under-eye bag treatment actually hold weight. The caffeine in black tea is considered a “vasoconstrictor,” meaning that it’s capable of temporarily shrinking the size of blood vessels. Studies also indicate that the topical application of caffeine smooths skin, which is why caffeine is often found in cellulite creams. These two factors work in tandem to help your eyes look a lot less puffy.

This wrinkle cream contains Coenzyme Q10, or simply CoQ10. This enzyme is found in every cell and tissue in the body helping everything from energy levels to neutralizing free radicals. The neutralizing of free radicals is why it’s used in a wrinkle cream. As we age, the amount of CoQ10 in our bodies decrease – which means fewer free radicals are neutralized and the physical effects show in our skin. The boost this cream provides will also create a stimulant to create elastin and collagen as well.
A: The best “anti-aging” product is sunblock, and that should be applied to the face daily as young as possible! In individuals with dry skin a daily moisturizer, serum, and eye cream should be started in the early 20s. If the individual has oily skin, traditional anti-aging products can start in their 30s, but most likely they will be using a retinol product to combat acne breakouts, so they are already using preventative measures.
Spoke with customer service on 9/14 to update my credit card info. Rep stated that I was all set and I would receive a confirmation email which I did on 9/17 alone with Allure charging my account in the amount of $16.33 for the Sept box. On 9/21 my account was suspended. "Suspended customer's request???" What's that. I called and they said they don't know what happened and don't know why the account said that. Then she told me that I would not receive the Sept box and would have to wait until October. WHAT!!! Your mistake and you charged me for NOTHING!!! DON'T DO IT. SAVE YOURSELF A BIG HEADACHE!!!
I don’t understand why ppl accuse these companies of scamming. That is bs. This company did not get to where it is by scamming. When they send something other than the sub boxes, they don’t use tracking because it is an added cost. This is typical of all Beauty companies. I have had boxes stolen from outside my apartment door on a few occasions. Once I had an Allure box stolen and they replaced it at no charge and with no questions asked. I think a lot of the result people get is caused by how they talk to the company. I personally find that the more reasonable I am when speaking to them about a problem, the more reasonable they are about a solution. But to call them scammers I think is really off the mark because most companies do their best to try and please their customers, that is how they stay in business. It just bugs me when people assume that everything is always their fault.
