As you age, the tissue structures and muscles supporting your eyelids weaken with the loss of collagen. This weakening of the tissue can cause the skin to begin sagging. The fat that is normally found in the area around the eyes may move into the area below your eyes, accumulating fluid and making the under-eye area appear puffy or swollen. Some things that can make this happen are fluid retention due to changes in weather, hormone levels, eating salty foods, not getting enough sleep, allergies, dermatitis — especially if puffiness is accompanied by redness and itching — and heredity.

“Brands can’t just ship the same things over and over and expect to ride the coattails of this subscription success trend either,” Tzuo said. “In addition to demanding immediate, ongoing fulfillment, customers today want to be happily surprised on a regular basis. And if brands don’t meet those expectations, they get dropped, not to mention trashed on social media. It’s that simple.”
Feb dosent look so great in comparison but some will be a hit or miss. Jan was deff a hit although I haven't been able to figure out what Jan's "mystery gift" is or was..

The company submitted data to the FDA from five clinical trials, which revealed moderate improvement in fine wrinkling in only 29 of 279 participants who applied tretinoin and sunscreen (compared with 3% in the control group, which used comprehensive sun protection only). Of those that used sun protection and tretinoin, 76% saw minimal improvement, no change or even worsened (compared to 88% of the control group).  All individuals within these five clinical trials had lighter skin types (Fitzpatrick Skin Types I – III.) A single study of 107 darkly pigmented subjects (Fitzpatrick Skin Types IV-VI) performed even worse. Of subjects who only used comprehensive sun protection, 49% demonstrated minimal or mild improvement in fine facial wrinkling. When compared to subjects who applied tretinoin and sunscreen only 29% showed improvement;
What causes them? Puffy eyes are the result of temporary swelling that is often caused by seasonal allergies. Puffiness can also arise if you’ve had too much salt or alcohol, which can leave you dehydrated—that leads to water retention, which in turn leads to swelling in the face. Lack of sleep makes puffy eyes worse, too, because of the pooling of fluid in the area. As a result, puffiness is often worse in the morning and resolves itself by the afternoon as the accumulated fluid drains with the help of gravity and time.

“I swear by this moisturizer! It's packed with 2.5 percent retinol and hyaluronic acid and a ton of organic ingredients including aloe, sunflower oil, jojoba oil, green tea and dandelion that are packed with nutrients and antioxidants for intense hydration and nourishment. Retinol helps eliminate and reduce signs of aging, improve appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin texture, which is a must for flawless-looking skin. This is definitely a hidden gem!” said Heather Rohrer, PA-C, owner of Center for Aesthetic Medicine and Human Performance in Las Vegas.
★VITAMIN C and RETINOL – Produced as a naturally occurring organic compound Ascorbic Acid is an anti-oxidant Vitamin C that is an essential nutrient in the production of collagen in the skin. We use Retinyl Palmitate which breaks down into Retinol as it absorbs into the skin, as this reduces the risk of adverse reaction that sometimes occurs to the concentrated form of Retinol.
I just can’t let go of Allure…I’ve got rid of all the others I had due to makeup and skincare overload but I just can’t let go of Allure. They have really stepped it up this past year and if they keep it going consistently like they have I don’t see myself getting rid of it anytime soon. I know you can’t make everyone happy but for me Allure really stepped up their game in 2018 and I was happy with each box I received. I hope their consistency carries through to 2019 as I will be looking forward to some more awesome Beauty Boxes from Allure.

The only way to ensure 100 percent if the benefits of a particular wrinkle cream are real is to try the product yourself, but a good way to learn more about the various benefits your chosen skin cream promises is to read user reviews. User reviews are easy to find online, and they list the pros, cons, and results of each product, allowing you to make a more informed decision.
Hyaluronic acid, a humectant that holds up to 1000 times its weight in water, can "plump" wrinkled skin, giving it the appearance of diminished wrinkles. A top anti-wrinkle eye cream, Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Intensive Eye Contour Cream contains Super Bio Hyaluronic Acid N for intense moisture; it also has burnet extract to revitalize cells and counteract loss of firmness.

This cream, which contains 100 percent pure green tea ferment extracts, is designed to retain moisture and keep your skin plump and hydrated. Anti-bacterial lemon seed oil and soothing rosewood oil are also a part of this blend and leave your face with a luxurious, velvety finish. You’ll appreciate how moisturized your skin will feel after applying the cream, since it’s not too sticky or heavy.


You deserve a pat on the back if you’re already using eye cream, but that brings us to our next question—are you using the right eye cream? It’s important to make sure that in addition to providing hydration, your product pick is helps to reduce the appearance of under-eye bags. Try the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream which can help minimize the appearance of puffiness.

Did you know that smoking cigarettes dries out and weakens the skin on your face as well as your whole body? It also causes premature aging around the eyes in particular. The chemicals found in cigarettes are toxic and can cause irritation around the eyes, which could result in dark circles or undereye bags in addition to a wrinkled, droopy appearance. If addiction has got you in its grips, you may want to try some natural approaches to quitting smoking.
Here’s another way your fridge can come in handy: Store a few metal spoons inside. When you find yourself with a little free time, perhaps while you’re watching an episode of your favorite TV show, grab two chilled spoons from the fridge and place them on your under-eye bags. The spoons will work in a similar manner to your refrigerated eye cream, helping to de-puff.
“I've been applying hyaluronic acid to my skin for years. It’s a substance naturally found in the skin and works to maintain water for a fuller, more youthful look. Its unique, moisture-binding feature allows it to hold many times its own weight in water. I used to apply a high-grade version of hyaluronic acid topically to my face, but the molecules were large, making it difficult for them to absorb into my skin. Today, smaller molecules of high-grade hyaluronic acid with better topical absorption capabilities can be found in over-the-counter products, including this gel cream that I apply nightly. Bonus: Its hydrating properties curb the irritation caused by retinols.
LOL I also don’t understand the outrage over a weeks delay of shipping your box. It’s kinda ridiculous. Throwing around the fact that you have been with Allure a year like you are more entitled is also ridiculous. I could in return say well wait just one minute here, I’ve been with them for 3 years and I’m more entitled than someone who’s been here a year. It’s dumb.
Retinoids remain one of the tried-and-true ingredients worth incorporating into your p.m. routine (they can be rendered inactive by the sun, making it important to reserve them for the overnight hours). This treatment marks the first time adapalene, a type of retinoid previously available by prescription only, has been available OTC. Its collagen-boosting benefits make it choice for smoothing wrinkles, while its skin-clearing benefits make it a good choice for clearing pimples. "It's highly effective in keeping pores open and minimizing breakouts, and is better tolerated than most retinoids," points out Dendy Engelman, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist in New York City.

Four of our remaining wrinkle creams advertised sunscreen built in: L’Oreal, Neutrogena, Philosophy, and StriVectin. Retinoids degrade very quickly in the sunlight, losing their potency. More worryingly, the 2010 handbook of Cosmetic Dermatology Products and Procedures suggests that retinoids may release free radicals as they degrade — molecules that harm your skin rather than helping it. Because of this, the handbook concludes, “it is still recommended to avoid UV exposure when using topical retinoids” (312). Sunblock does slow retinoid degradation, according to a 2008 study, but the retinoids still degrade to some extent. Ultimately, this wasn’t a risk we felt comfortable taking. Until there’s been more extensive research on the topic, we’ve opted to skip all sunscreen-containing products.

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.
