As you can see, my under-eye bags and darknesses (“Hello darkness my old friend….”) haven’t completely disappeared. Instead of obsessing over getting them perfect, I’m going to embrace this quirk. If every weirdness was wiped out of one’s face, one would look so robotic and character-less, right? I’m okay with my under-eyes giving me some personality–as long as they don’t rise up in mutiny again, haha.
I’m in my 40’s. I can read and smell. I know what it is and what it’s for but it stinks and it’s full of blue dye. Stained a white pillow case. I have plenty of face and body products. This stuff is not going back on my face so I can stain another pillow case. Plus, I don’t want to smell it. It stinks! It’s packed full of vitamin C so there’s really no reason it can’t be used on feet too. At least it’s not going to waste. Have s great day!

Mine supposedly shipped yesterday. I’m so excited for it! I went ahead and ordered it because I had seen several people unbox it on YouTube. The value of the products is unbelievable for January. My theory is that allure had so many unsatisfied customers and cancellations from all the issues last year that they’re going to work really hard to bring those customers back this year. I think their goal is to make things right again and I predict some really good boxes in our future. I could be wrong but let’s hope not. 🤞
The anatomy of your facial features also plays a role. A prominent “tear trough” or nasojugal groove, extending from the inner corner of the eye diagonally toward the cheekbone, can cause shadowing and make dark circles more apparent. This trough can appear or deepen with fat loss that often comes with age and can start around 25—or you can just thank bone structure and genetics.
I liked the products that I received but the service quality has me pretty angry. I told them to cancel my subscription as I only wanted to try one box. They told me to contact them again after I received an order confirmation. Got the confirmation, sent them another cancellation request, and didn’t hear back. A week later Paypal notifies me that Allure charged me another month. No matter how nice the samples are, I hate getting money stolen and poor customer service. Will not use again - Sincerely, a very pissed customer 🙃
Subscribed to the beauty box via MSA in early August, inputted a different shipping and billing address and they shipped it to my billing address anyway. I called and asked Allure why would they ask for that information if they're going to ship it to the billing address regardless, and they said that there are multiple ways to sign up and usually it defaults to the billing address, even if the shipping option is specified (so why even ask for shipping if that's the case? remove the option?). I contacted them multiple times via phone to see when they would send my beauty box (to the correct address this time). I was originally told 5-10 business days. After ten business days with no box, I reached back out and this time spoke to a manager. She was understanding, refunded my money, said she would send it out again but she informed me they only ship boxes out ONCE A MONTH. it would be 21-30 days for me to receive that box.
This wrinkle cream is intended to target a common problem area for wrinkles and sagging: the neck and jaw line. In many people, these are the areas that first show signs of aging, and a product that tackles that specific area is definitely appreciated. This product uses its own Pro-Retinol A and Stimuplex formulas to provide a long lasting hydration that will improve elasticity and create smoother skin.

UVB rays are the main cause of sunburn and reddening. It has different strengths during different seasons, times of day and location, but it can burn and damage your skin all year. It may not penetrate glass as much as UVA rays do, but as much as 80% of UVB rays bounce off reflective surfaces such as snow. It is also a contributing factor to premature aging from sun damage.

We also liked La Prairie’s packaging choice. Its completely opaque pump bottle carries an even smaller risk of exposure to oxygen and sunlight than Dr. Dennis' eye dropper, and means you can precisely measure out how much cream you need. Testers also liked the sheer appearance of the bottle itself calling it “otherworldly.” It’s sleek, minimal, and futuristic.

Facial primer is also a key player in the fight against dark circles. Color-correcting primers with a yellow tint are going to be your new best friend. A yellow primer can neutralize dark, bluish under-eye circles, and because the primer is so sheer, it's easy to blend, explains makeup artist Joanna Schlip. She recommends dabbing a teeny bit over dark circles (try Make Up For Ever HD Microperfecting Primer in Yellow), and then spreading your foundation on top. "If your circles are very dark, you can tap regular concealer over the primer, and then layer on your foundation," she says. Bonus: Because primer contains silicone to fill in wrinkles, it'll also prevent makeup from creasing in smile lines.

Same! I only see a reference to the refund and free box in the preview of the e-mail while I’m looking at my entire mailbox. If I open the message, the subject says nothing about a refund and free box, and the body of the e-mail just says they apologize for the shipping delay. I’m not optimistic the refund and bonus box will really happen. I think that part may have been a mistake.
If you're looking for extra moisture that will last while you sleep, you'll find your match with this product. Light in feel (and price!), this gel-like L'Oréal cream received high marks for firming and moisturizing. In the Good Housekeeping Institute's test, it led to a 36% uptick in skin's firmness in four weeks, plus a 40% rise in moisturization.

As part of a broader, company-wide strategy, Condé Nast CEO Bob Sauerberg said he was open to expanding subscription boxes to other brands. GQ already offers the “GQ Best Stuff Box” ($49.99 per quarter), which is a curated box of recommended products from the brand, and Teen Vogue just launched The Rag (for $24.99), which it described as a toolkit for period and vaginal health.


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.
This wrinkle cream is all-natural with no fillers, parabens, or harmful fragrances or dyes. The Aloe, green tea, shea butter, and jojoba oil will act to protect your skin and soften the fine lines while the hyaluronic acid will provide long-lasing hydration. The retinol will stimulate collagen production and make your skin tighter over time. And if it doesn’t – there’s always the money-back guarantee!

The best under-eye bag treatment is, in fact, not a cream at all. It’s caffeinated black tea, and it’s better than any fancy, beautifully packaged cream that I have ever tried. Here’s the method I follow, which I found on a skin-care forum long ago: I steep two bags in warm water for a few minutes, then allow them to cool for 5 to 15 minutes in the refrigerator. When the bags are nice and cold, I plop them over my eyes and lie down for ten minutes or so. When I remove the tea bags, my eye bags are totally gone as well. It’s that easy.
Truth is, your eye puffiness and darkness could be inherited. "The undereye area is one of the thinner areas and is easily neglected in basic skin care," says Paul Jarrod Frank, a cosmetic dermatologist in New York City. "There is a strong genetic component to dark circles, which is out of people’s control." Womp, womp. Yes, much of the reason you have those circles is that of your parents' own thin skin (thanks, Mom). Sometimes you have them because of an increase in pigment in that area. But don't run to the doctor asking for a pricey laser or needle treatment. Below are ways to minimize the appearance of those circles that won't cost you an arm or a leg. These affordable tips go way beyond putting cucumbers on your eyes.
HORRRRIBLEEE!!! I recieved by box with the nail polish already shattered and damaging every single product in the box so I emailed TWICE asking nicely for a replacement or for a refund and I got no reply so when I finally called after 6 days of no response the woman on the phone didn't so much as even fake apologize she just said "okay you're cancelled" and that was all. Rude and I'll be telling everyone I know. I also referred a bunch of people who signed up and then after this I got them all to cancel and will be telling everyone I can to not waste their money/time. Simple customer service skills could have gone a long way. Damaged items are an easy fix but the people they have replying to emails and phone calls are the real damaged items.
Depending on what's causing bags under the eyes, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) may be a treatment option. During blepharoplasty (BLEF-uh-roe-plas-tee), the surgeon removes excess fat through an incision in the natural crease of the upper eyelid or inside the lower lid. He or she then rejoins the skin with tiny dissolving stitches. The procedure is usually done as an outpatient procedure.

While there is an element of genetics and luck associated with how your skin ages, a great deal influence on it is our lifestyle. Smoking, sunburn, drinking and having a poor diet can all greatly affect the resilience of our skin, meaning it is far more likely to age prematurely. So in addition to promoting your skin’s natural collagen productions through applying pro-collagen creams, here are some other ways you can help your skin stay resilient, healthy and youthful.
Exfoliating alpha and beta hydroxy acids meet nourishing passionfruit extract in this dual-purpose cream. At work in the moisturizing department? Hyaluronic acid. "Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, meaning it draws water to the skin," says Emily Arch, M.D., a dermatologist at Dermatology + Aesthetics in Chicago. It then holds onto that moisture instantly—yes, the effects are immediate—making skin look and feel more hydrated and plump. Gentle enough to use every night, it works equally well on normal, dry, oily, or combination skin types (since hyaluronic acid is deeply hydrating yet still lightweight enough that it won't feel greasy).

“I love this product because it’s sensitive enough for first-time retinol users. Retinol, a derivative of vitamin A, does a lot. It minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, diminishes hyperpigmentation, blackheads and dark spots and reduces inflammation, pore size and the appearance of blemishes. The only issue is that it can be harsh on the skin, leaving it dry and irritated. But not this product!
In a previous Health interview, dermatologist Jessica Krant MD, recommended this product for those looking to start using a retinol product, explaining that "the ingredients are of good quality and I have never had anyone complain about any skin reaction or difficulty managing this retinol." It packs hyaluronic acid to boost moisture while also erasing fine lines.
This retinol serum boasts that it will take care of 7 signs of aging. It says it will reduce the appearance of wrinkles, balance out and even your skin tone, reduce the appearance of age spots, even out skin texture, provide hydration, give skin a brighter glow, and minimize the appearance of your pores. That seems like a lot to promise, but one look at the reviews and you’ll know that they definitely deliver for at least some people!
“This facial moisturizer is one of Hollywood's best kept secrets. Gwyneth Paltrow swears by it, and so do I! The sheen and radiance it leaves is pretty remarkable. I can put this on in the morning and by the end of the day, my skin still feels soft and hydrated. It smooths out any patches of dry skin you may have seamlessly. It's non-greasy, loaded with a cocktail of peptides, including lipoamino acid and vitamin C, plus it's not tested on animals,” said Rohrer, whose celebrity clients include Carmen Ortega and Jay Cutler.

The Allure Beauty Box was something I heard friends and coworkers talking about. I looked online and they had products closest to what my needs were. I like certain colors and styles and the personalization part of making toward what I wear and need versus randomly sending me things I may not use. I like certain types of makeup like eyeliner and cover up. The only thing I would add is more deals and discounts to people who buy, to have more selection and colors of brand items they include in the box, and to have different subscription boxes to choose from. Otherwise I enjoy the product they have now. Great products, A+.
The classic home remedy of tea bags has been used to treat under-eye bags for years. The caffeine provided by the tea constricts the blood vessels around the eye, reducing puffiness, while the tannins help to decrease swelling and discolouration. Good for removing dark shadows, this treatment is best used when you’re out of product and need a quick fix. Just place two used tea bags in the refrigerator for half an hour before applying to closed eyes for 10 minutes.

We also liked La Prairie’s packaging choice. Its completely opaque pump bottle carries an even smaller risk of exposure to oxygen and sunlight than Dr. Dennis' eye dropper, and means you can precisely measure out how much cream you need. Testers also liked the sheer appearance of the bottle itself calling it “otherworldly.” It’s sleek, minimal, and futuristic.
Using this method, you can work out that higher SPF ratings don’t actually give you much more protection than medium SPF ratings. The Skin Cancer Foundation reports that SPF 15 blocks 93% of UVB rays, SPF 30 blocks 97% and SPF 50 blocks 98%. While these differences seem insignificant, they can still make a great difference over time, especially if you have fair skin or a history of cancer.
Do not, I repeat do NOT subscribe! I’ve had the subscription for 3 months and I have gotten one box. The second month when I didn’t receive the box I contacted customer service and was told they would be sending me a replacement with tracking because the first tracking showed it was sent back to them for an error on their part. After a week I had not received the email with tracking so I contacted them again, this time I was told I would not be given tracking but the box should show up within 2 to 3 weeks.
The number helps you work out how long you will be protected for. Consider how long it normally takes you to burn without sunscreen on – calculate this in minutes. Multiple this number by the SPF number on your chosen sunscreen to get the length of time in minutes that you are protected for. More on this later, but the idea is that SPF 15, for example, protects you from damage for 15 times longer than going unprotected.
"If your skin has lost it's freshness and your expression lines are starting to appear more obvious, try this. The vitamin A in this cream will help with cell turnover making your skin appear smooth, soft and fresh. Hyaluronic acid will give your skin instant and long-lasting hydration. Just remember to use an SPF during the day when using any creams, serums and lotions with vitamin A” said Cinthia Lomeli, whose celebrity clients include Sean Diddy Combs, French Montana, Cassie Ventura, Yael Grobglas and Diana Madison.

So disgusted!!! I've only had this subscription for 3 months (May being the third month) and all 3 months I've had to contact customer service! The first month- it was 3 weeks after my payment posted to my bank account before I received an email stating my box was shipped and on its way. They said that's how it goes with the first months box. So ok. Then the second month, April, the money is posted to my account. When you sign up it states onces the money is withdrawn from your bank account, once it posts you will receive an email stating it has shipped. So 3-4 days go by still no email. A week. Still no email. Once again almost 3 weeks go by before I receive an email that the box has even shipped! They tell me sorry for the delay, I write back saying, "yes I see that there is a delay, but why is there such a delay? When you order it states once the money is posted in your account you will receive an email about shipping, not several weeks later" no reply back. So this month (May) I check my bank account and I notice that they double charged me. Once on May 11th and again on May 14th. I write them about this double charge asking to be reimbursed. Later that day (may 16th) there is a reversal charge and the money is put back into my account. They get back to me on the 18th stating that "there was only one charge which was May 11th which is for my beauty box and that their records show no charge on May 14th!!! So I wrote them back and told them that is strange because I can see it right on my account. I took pictures of both charges with the dates as well as the reversal charge and told them I don't know how it was taken care of but thankfully it was because it doesn't sound like I would of received much help!!! I am seriously debating cancelling my subscription. I do like the products which is why I gave this review one star! Let's see when i receive the email about shipping! As of today it has been a week since the payment was posted to my bank account!!!

★ ANTI AGING COLLAGEN BOOST CREAM – This anti aging cream is a face lotion that not only acts as a face moisturizer but as an anti wrinkle cream which reduces wrinkles in dry skin, oily skin and combination skin and boosts collagen production Ideally applied after a serum it helps to reduce fine lines and can help with acne scars, upper lip lines and around eyes. This face cream anti aging anti wrinkle daily moisturizer is good both for men and for women to make you look younger.
We found the formula pleasantly lightweight when we tested it. It only took us about four drops to cover our entire faces, and the serum absorbs within a couple of minutes. Its scent is fairly light — you might have to focus to catch it, as opposed to Dermatologica’s knock-your-socks-off approach — and has herbal and medicinal tones that none of our testers objected to.

Founded in 2014, co-founders Josh Meyer & Matt Bolduc were looking for premium men's skincare & grooming products, but couldn't find a brand that met their needs. They wanted products that were not only the best on the market, but also ones that used natural ingredients. They also were looking for a brand they could relate to as men, something for the every day man. After months of searching, they decided to take the matter into their own hands and create Brickell.
Vitamin B3, also known as niacinamide, is a skincare essential that’s often forgotten. It can be used to brighten your complexion, reduce inflammation, and keep water from leaving your skin’s protective barrier. Niacinamide helps decrease inflammation of the skin and lower overall redness of the skin, says Dr. Tzu. Research suggests it may also help aid in fading fine lines and wrinkles, amp up your skin’s luminosity, and get rid of dry patches and blotchy areas. Niacinamide has also been found to help prevent and clear up acne, whether it’s hormonal or cystic, research suggests.
Bags under the eyes are a common development of age and a frequent complaint among patients who no longer feel as youthful as they once did. To describe what happens a bit more, normal fat that helps support the eye sometimes moves into the lower eyelid, which causes the lid to appear puffy. Additionally, fluid may accumulate in the area below your eyes, which adds to the swelling.
While each product is under the anti-aging umbrella, the creams, moisturizers, and serums vary in the specific aging concerns–like fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, and poor elasticity–they more aggressively target. If you have particularly sensitive skin, best practice is to read ingredient lists carefully so you can avoid common skin irritants in beauty products, like added fragrance. And because everyone’s skin is different, it’s always helpful to pay attention to the user testimonials to get a better sense of the results or potential side effects you can expect. Lastly, don’t get discouraged if you don’t see immediate results from one of these anti-aging products; anti-aging benefits take time, and sometimes even a little trial and error to find the right product for your skin type and concerns.
Alcohol dehydrates your body and skin. This dehydration can cause the delicate area around your eyes to appear sunken and dark. Also, alcohol can cause bloodshot, tired eyes. Take it easy on the alcohol by having no more than one glass per day. I would suggest drinking lots of water instead. You will feel fresher, your eyes will be wide open and the skin around your eyes will glow because it’s more hydrated.

Nowadays, there are masks for everything. Face, hair, lips, and even eyes! If you’re wondering why all those masks are necessary, it’s because there isn’t a one size fits all product. You probably won’t want your favorite face mask getting to get too close to your eyes, right? So, you need a mask that’s specifically designed for the under-eye area. Eye masks are typically cushy, apostrophe-shaped sheets that go underneath your eyes, right where your under-eye bags happen to be.
We’ve said it before, and we will say it again: when it comes to anti-aging creams, vitamins matter. That’s why we love that the Mario Badescu Vital with Collagen and Elastin for Men is overflowing with intense anti-oxidants and Vitamin A to nourish your skin and restore its natural, youthful glow. In fact, this collagen cream can be used daily, or overnight to achieve great results.
As is the case with most of the body’s natural processes, collagen production naturally slows down a bit as we age. When collagen levels drop, the elasticity of our skin (and the other parts of our bodies that depend on this vital protein) soften and become more fragile. Decreased collagen levels can lead to everything from wrinkles and fine lines to increased bone fragility and de-pigmented hair color (that’s where those stubborn grays and, if we let them, eventual white hairs come from!).
The least expensive of the top trio of eye creams, Eau Thermale Avène Rétrinal Eyes Eye Contour Care was just as moisturizing as our gold winner and earned kudos from satisfied testers for its nongreasy, fast-absorbing formula. However, dermatologists recommend that if dark circles are your primary concern, invest in a good concealer. Topical lotions are ineffective at treating them.

You may need to shop around some to find the right wrinkle cream for you. We aim to make that process a bit simpler by rounding up 50 of the best, top-rated wrinkle creams available that, according to reviewers, actually work. We’ve listed our picks below in alphabetical order for easy reference. Ratings are based on Amazon reviews and are current at the time of this publication.
We’ve all seen movie makeover scenes involving someone sporting a brightly colored face mask, paired with cucumber slices over their eyes, but is that really a thing? As it turns out, yes! It makes sense if you think about it. “Cool as a cucumber” isn’t a saying for nothing. The cool quality of the cucumber slices can aid in reducing puffiness. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that you’ll feel like you’re straight out of your favorite rom com.
Dr. Tzu says retinol helps increase collagen production and normalize differentiation of the top layer of skin. Clinically, it’s used to smooth the skin, even out discoloration, and unclog pores. But you’ll want to be mindful of retinol’s tendencies to amplify the skin’s sensitivity to the sun and be sure to always wear plenty of SPF when you use retinol skincare products throughout the day.
The very best way to tackle wrinkles is to prevent them in the first place. Everyone we spoke to — dermatologists and chemists alike — noted that the most important wrinkle-fighting product you should own is sunscreen. And not just any sunscreen: a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 (as we learned when reviewing the best sunscreen). Stick with SPF 30; wear it every single day; and reapply as often as the instructions tell you to.
You’ll see instant results with this wrinkle cream. As soon as you’ve fully applied it, you’ll notice some tightness. But over time, you’ll also notice that the overall effect of the cream will soften your wrinkles and smooth out your fine lines. The Progenix Retinol cream boosts and restores your collagen production creating a more youthful skin appearance.
I recently subscribed to this box and I was blown away by the quality of the products. I'm no stranger to subscription boxes so I was expecting the usual mediocre bunch of products with a few that stood out but ALL of this was great! I received the January 2019 box and got TWO Sunday Riley products which is pretty insane just price wise. The other products were a mix of hair and makeup that I was really pleased with the quality of. And most importantly for me, you can subscribe through Amazon so it's super easy to cancel if you want to.

If noticing some fine lines sent you straight into a frenzy of Googling anti-aging solutions, you're in the right place. These picks include preventative solutions (like retinol-powered all-stars), formulas for fast results (thanks to elasticity-boosting ingredients), and even some all-natural products that'll help prevent and smooth the appearance of wrinkles.
"It’s also the most cosmetically elegant sunscreen I have ever used. It rubs in easily, doesn’t feel greasy, doesn’t clog pores and is compatible with my moisturizer and makeup. I apply it in the morning to any exposed skin and wear it every day, no matter the weather because I never want to be caught unprotected from the sun. It’s also great to apply before a flight, as UVA rays can penetrate airplane windows,” says Dr. Amy Wechsler, M.D., assistant clinical professor in dermatology at SUNY Downstate Medical Center.
The best under-eye bag treatment is, in fact, not a cream at all. It’s caffeinated black tea, and it’s better than any fancy, beautifully packaged cream that I have ever tried. Here’s the method I follow, which I found on a skin-care forum long ago: I steep two bags in warm water for a few minutes, then allow them to cool for 5 to 15 minutes in the refrigerator. When the bags are nice and cold, I plop them over my eyes and lie down for ten minutes or so. When I remove the tea bags, my eye bags are totally gone as well. It’s that easy.
Apparently the Sunday Riley Glow Serum in the January box is a full size. You can preorder that and the retinoid cream on Sunday Riley’s website. It comes in a kit with a glycolic treatment. I’m super excited for all 3 boxes! I’m a little sad that the retinoid cream from Sunday Riley will be wasted on me because I already have a high strength prescription retinoid cream I use every night.
