I think that modelco product is actually the highlighting cream trio, not eyeshadow. Just FYI, it’s a cream bronzer, blush and highlighter in the trio. A “cream to powder finish” they say. So yeah it’s definitely the highlighting trio as they call it (really a cream blush, bronzer and highlighter) and it’s def not an eyeshadow palette trio like you have listed though
A: Stimulating collagen production is key in combating signs of aging. For the novice, I like to start with microneeding, chemical peels, or IPL. These are all low downtime and usually affordable treatments done in a series of three to six sessions. For the individual that needs a more rigorous anti-aging treatment, I am a huge fan of laser resurfacing treatments such as Fraxel and Pixel Erbium laser. These treatments act on a deeper level and can correct texture, tone, and sun damage at a more aggressive level.

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]

This wrinkle cream checked all the boxes on our ingredient wish list, but unfortunately came in the wrong packaging. Unlike squeeze tubes and pump bottles, a jar means that the entire cream is exposed to air, sun, and bacteria every time it’s used. But if you’re sold on the idea of a thick lotion or cream, it’s the closest competitor to the $530 La Prairie.
This is primarily a sunscreen, but we felt the need to include it because of the damage the sun’s harsh rays can do to your skin. Many wrinkles are formed prematurely if your skin is over-exposed to the sun unprotected. This wrinkle repair cream is one that will use its 15 SPF to protect your skin from future damage, and its other ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid and retinol, with begin to repair the damage already done.
Verlayze is a premiere dark eye circle cream on the market.

In fact, you’re GUARANTEED results with a leading 100% Money Back Guarantee. Read more...

I have a hate and love relationship with this subscription —— except mainly love. I would say I have been subscribed to allure beauty box for quite a long time and honestly I think the productsXsamples I received are quite decent and they are definitely worth the money. Never have there been a time where my subscription came in really late or haven’t been delivered, the charge my account at the same time every month and I get the box also around the same time every month. I would say there are almost win and loose in every box I received — products I used and loved + products I found absolutely useless and not for me —- but honestly it still worth it cuz I would give it to my friend who may be suited for the box and they would love it. I think trying a subscription box means that your trying out a wide range of products that some u might find new and interest and some you might never purchase. But regardless, you will find something you like. Some products giving by the subscription box are brands I never heard of and I started buying from that brand because I really liked the item I received. And some brand—-well i know not to purchase from them (really rarely tho I find stuff I hate that much).
We wanted an anti-aging cream with a full arsenal of defenses, so we required our top picks to contain hyaluronic acid of some type. But we opted to bring all 8 of our remaining contenders into the office for hands-on testing — four with HA and four without. This allowed us to check out drugstore runners-up like RoC, which are a lot cheaper and easier to find than brands like La Prairie (and can be paired with a face moisturizer containing HA).
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.

Notably, The Ordinary is the only one of our finalists to have two types of retinoids on its ingredient list: a retinol and a retinoate. This means that it may be a little stronger than our other picks. And, in fact, it was the only formula where our testers noticed a light burning sensation after application. It's not unusual for retinoids to cause stinging, itching, or tenderness, and it's usually a sign to cut back on your use: Only apply the product once every two or three days while your skin adjusts, and monitor your reaction over the course of a few weeks. If your skin continues to react poorly, take it as a sign to choose a gentler formula or consult with your dermatologist for other options.

I received the same email but mine had nothing about a refund. Mine said they were charging my card & sending my January box out next week & will give me a tracking # then. Then an hour later received an email saying “opps” ignore the last email & your box will be sent out next week & you will get your tracking # then. How weird… Both emails were basically saying the same thing. I am just wondering why they are sending their beauty boxes out late this month. It seems like a lot of beauty boxes were actually sent out late this month. But this is sooooo weird!!!


"I added it to my routine (Cetaphil wash, The Ordinary Glycolic Acid Toner, and Corsx Snail serum, on a weekly basis). This is the third week and I have noticed a huge diminishing in my uneven skin tone and acne scarring. I look younger and my skin glows after. It doesn’t burn like stronger peels and my skin only slightly reddens after." —Alexandra Snyder
“It has retinol, which is a precursor to prescription RetinA, the most powerful anti-aging ingredient we know to date. It must be converted on the patient’s skin to RetinA via an enzymatic process, so the actual derived amount is much smaller. But better than no RetinA!” said Dr. Anna Guanche, dermatologist at Bella Skin Institute, Calabasas, California, whose clients include Olivia Culpo and Natalie Imbruglia.

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!
While there are a lot of terrific options for sale to choose from, our all-around top pick for the best anti-aging wrinkle cream is the Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream. Featuring natural ingredients from the sea and a lightweight, grease-free formula, this pro-collagen cream packs a tough, wrinkle-fighting punch without the harmful chemicals of other products on the market. We particularly love that it is paraben free and that users can see real results in as little as two weeks!
Although jade and rose quartz rollers have played a key role in Chinese beauty regimens for centuries, they only recently became a staple in American vanities. Using the smaller stone, gently roll it underneath your eyes in outward motions to promote blood flow and soothe puffy skin. Pro tip: Throw your roller into your refrigerator before each use for the ultimate cooling experience.
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.
Is there any new news on the November box & that one-day bonus Sunday Riley CEO? I haven’t had any of my emails (to various addresses) returned. Last I heard (here on MSA, bless you all!) was that people who had managed to get a live person on the phone were told that shipments were lost. I haven’t received my December box, either, tho I haven’t unsubscribed because I still want that Sunday Riley if at all possible. I’m not even as much angry anymore as sad.

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.
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!!!

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.
If you are concerned about products drying out your skin, the best way to find out is to try it out – try to get a tester, or check out other users’ reviews. Out of the products, we couldn’t find any products which were drying on your skin, in fact most of them are specifically designed to keep your skin hydrated, but everyone is slightly different – so test it out first.

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!).
Anti-aging creams are predominantly moisturiser-based cosmeceutical skin care products marketed with the promise of making the consumer look younger by reducing, masking or preventing signs of skin aging. These signs are laxity (sagging), rhytids (wrinkles), and photoaging, which includes erythema (redness), dyspigmentation (brown discolorations), solar elastosis (yellowing), keratoses (abnormal growths), and poor texture.[1]

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.

Testers adored its texture, both immediately after applying, and hours later. It’s a lightweight formula that absorbs nearly instantly, and rests almost invisibly on the skin. This is particularly impressive given that La Prairie also includes a host of moisturizing plant-based oils like jojoba and sunflower seed oil. These absorbed quickly when we applied in the evening, and helped soothe our skin so our faces felt refreshed and moisturized in the morning.
Luckily, there are a slew of skincare products on the market right now that work to fight the peskiest of under-eye bags—no matter their cause. According to Shereene Idriss, M.D., of Union Square Laser Dermatology in New York, anyone looking to de-puff swollen eyes should opt for creams and treatments that contain caffeine, green tea extract, or antioxidants like vitamin C for the best (and fastest) results. "These ingredients work to constrict the superficial vasculature, which results in less swelling," she says.
I’ve always been bothered by my dark under-eye circles. No matter how many hours I sleep a night, they’re always there, and no amount of serum or color corrector can make them go away. Recently I was talking to a bunch of my coworkers, and we all seemed to have some version of the same complaint. We all rolled our tired eyes, remarking on how we’re perpetually sleep-deprived (it’s cool to be too busy to sleep, haven’t you heard?) and on the constant hunt for the best concealer.
According to the manufacturer, this product is a scientific breakthrough in the field of beauty and aging. It claims to offer instant results and helps make sagging skin firmer. It seems like most of the claims made by the manufacturer are true, as there is a 30-day money back guarantee on this product. It is also safe and natural aside from being highly effective.
Change your dietary habits. A salty dinner paired with a few cocktails is fine every once in a while, but if you make a daily habit of eating salt and drinking alcohol, it can have a long-term effect on your eye bags. Years of water retention in the facial area can lead to permanently stretched-out bags. To prevent this from happening to you, try making the following changes:

Well, the Wander Beauty mascara is valued at $24 and the Model Co is actually a highlighting cream trio valued at $22. I don’t expect every box to just “get me.” There will always be hits and misses. There are no comparable boxes that provide full size high-end samples for $15. Not to mention, Allure then turns around and includes or mails out an additional full size sample often. Customer service is also speedy when ordering through Amazon. Beats the heck out of Sephora Play @ $10.
