“This is the best anti-aging product in the drugstore! It addresses most concerns associated with premature aging of the skin including tone, texture, wrinkles and discoloration by containing the right combination of ingredients. This product has been evaluated in clinical trials — in fact, one study published in the British Journal of Dermatology showed that it was as effective as Renova (an FDA-approved prescription product for the treatment of wrinkles).
Creams are a favourite treatment type for under eye bags as they are efficient and easy to integrate into your daily beauty routine. The only issue is making sure you choose the right cream. Look out for creams that contain caffeine and hyaluronic acid, as these tend to be the most effective. Caffeine helps to tighten skin, reduce puffiness and drain excess fluid from the area, while hyaluronic acid plumps and hydrates sagging skin. Remember to use cream consistently for optimum results.
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.
Puffy, swollen and often discoloured, under eye bags are caused by fluid or fat accumulating below the eyes. While fat accumulation is a natural part of ageing, fluid build up can be a response triggered by many causes. Lack of sleep is a common cause for puffy eyes, while dehydration can create sagging in the delicate under-eye area. Seasonal allergies also cause fluid accumulation in the under-eye area, as does a diet high in sodium. By identifying the cause of your under eye bags, you may be able to prevent them better and aid in their treatment.
A type of eyelid surgery called blepharoplasty may help eliminate bags under the eyes, depending on their cause. During this outpatient procedure, the eye surgeon creates an incision under the lashes or inside the lower lid. The surgeon removes excess fat through the incision and sometimes removes extra skin, then closes the incisions with tiny stitches.
It is also worth knowing, however, that just because a product contains a simple alcohol, it doesn’t mean it will be drying on your skin – even if it is high up the product list. The product may be rich in emollient ingredients, or fatty alcohols. Products like moisturizers are unlikely to be drying on the skin – because they are designed to impart moisture or help your skin to retain its moisture. Gels designed for reducing acne on the other hand, and similarly toners designed for oily skin, are more likely to have a drying effect on your skin.

Anyone who works a job that has any kind of stress level knows that the constant "no sleep" situation is so real. You've probably Googled "how to get rid of bags under eyes" on more than one occasion, and you'd do almost anything (save cut off an arm) to get rid of them. And even after you've tried a million expensive treatments, they usually come back.

"Sometimes dark circles are caused by increased pigment, either from rubbing or from sun damage," says Nazarian. "The best treatment for this includes topical lightening agents such as vitamin C, kojic acid, and licorice extract. These ingredients help decrease skin pigmentation over time, ultimately resulting in the lightening of the dark circles." And you must wear sunscreen. "Invest in a broad-spectrum physical sunscreen that contains zinc oxide or titanium dioxide," Tung says.
More than 8,000 5-star reviewers swear by this bestselling anti-aging serum with powerful vitamin C and hyaluronic acid, two of the most essential ingredients for preventing fine lines and boosting collagen production. Even better, the plant-based formulation means no additives or fragrances—just healthy, all-natural ingredients like aloe, jojoba oil, and witch hazel.
“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.

I love the Allure Beauty Box I get every month! Iv subscribed since July of 2018 and so far just about every box has had something I'v bought. Someone of the boxes come with full size items with brands like: Sunday Riley, MAC, ISL, Kat Von D, and First Aid Beauty for example. The items allow me to try out lipsticks, face cleaners, mask, various others make up products out. For $15 a month the box is definitely worth every penny!

I subscribed to the Beauty Box and got charged for it right away, however, it took about 3 weeks to get the actual box, in the meantime they had already charged me for the next month's box, which confused me so I emailed them to ask why the extra charge and got no response, emailed again and again no response, so I finally called them to which they told me that it was the following month's charge. How can they charge you for the next month and still not send the previous month's box? By the way, as I am writing this, I still haven't received the next box, they charged me for it on 1/7 and today is 1/28, and I was told that i was going to have to wait another 7-10 days for me to receive it, something about a product missing, so almost a month after I paid for it, still haven't got it. So after reading a lot of bad reviews about customer service and how it was difficult to cancel your membership, I decided to just that, I had to call them again because they make it very difficult for you to cancel, you can't just do it from your account online like all other boxes, you have to call them and wait on the phone for a long time and when you tell them you want to cancel, they offer you 4 boxes at 12 dollars per box. That was kind of weird to me, but even at $12 it's not worth the headache. Going back to Boxycharm, that is one of the best boxes out there.
I got that email too. But the weird thing is I only see the bit about the refund and bonus box when the email is minimized in my inbox. When I actually open the email it just says they’re updating me on January. Given how freaking terrible their customer service is I’m half convinced the refund and bonus are a mistake and that won’t actually happen.
You definitely have to try adding boxycharm. The products are always full size and you get five products for $21. Even if you don’t like a couple of the products it’s over the value of what you pay for it. And we get brushes like every other month it seems like. Allure hasn’t been too bad. It’s like $16 and you get some full size and some sample size. This month is a special Kat Von D box that has a full size of the lip liner a full size of her liquid lipstick and a full size walnut scrub. I am excited. Ipsy is Nice, you do get some brushes in them. I generally feel like I get lower end samples though. And I got a product I hate twice in a row even after I gave it a bad review. You do get some full size products in it. I did get a tarte blush in a pretty good size. They are worth a shot too. Birchbox is great for skin care. You will get a couple of makeup products, but mostly skin care.
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!

I’m happy to see that there are several of you that are loving the spoilers for January. Now I loved the December box but I’m definitely not feeling the January or the February box lol. I’m not complaining because I know come March I may love the box. It’s a subscription box you can’t make everyone happy 100% of the time and you know what I accept that and I am ok with that. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year!
I subscribed to the Beauty Box and they took the money out and for 2 weeks I didn't get any sort of confirmation. So I emailed them and 1 week later they responded with just saying it will soon be shipped out. The following month I still didn't receive it and all they said was, "Sorry for inconvenience but it was shipped and nothing we can do at this point." My friend received her box and the bag was broken and one other product and they never replaced it. I cancelled my subscription and went through my bank to get my money back because they did not even respond after that.
The LiftActiv Supreme is a new generation of anti-aging skincare. It has been specifically designed to reduce daily aging, giving you a youthful glow all day. It helps to smoothe wrinkles and illuminate your complexion, giving you visibly firmer-looking skin in 1 month.  It has “3D Optical Correctors” which aim to blur and illuminate your skin to keep your youthful appearance all day long, reinforcing your skin against daily shocks.
And they wanted in—or really, I wanted them to want in. I would do those fitness supplement–peddling Ponzi schemes proud with my insistence that my friends, family, and co-workers try dermarolling themselves. But then again, it’s probably easier to convince someone to try a protein shake than roll hundreds of tiny needles into her face. That’s fair.
Pillowy under-eyes are complicated, but if baggage is a concern, two main culprits—fat tissue and lymphedema—are likely to blame, says Dr. Barbara Sturm, who specializes in non-surgical skincare treatments. The former, "appears when the muscles around the eye are weakened and tissue moves lower," Sturm explains, whereas the latter, lymphedema, is often triggered by sleep deprivation, hormonal imbalances, high sodium food and genetics. In terms of prevention, Sturm cautions against eye-rubbing and recommends sleeping face up, which reduces nighttime water-retention. For a quicker fix, we polled dermatologists for their most effective semi-instant under-eye remedies. From Preparation H to black tea, here's what really works.
Whenever you find yourself shopping around for a new wrinkle-fighting and age-defying Super Product, one factor stands out above the rest: results. Sure, we all love a sweet-smelling formula or a list of ingredients comparable to our favorite salad but, at the end of the day, does any of that really matter if you’re still plagued by crow’s feet and fine lines?

For an anti-aging serum, moisturizer and sunscreen in one, with line smoothers (such as peptides), hydrators (like glycerin) and broad-spectrum SPF 30, this GH Seal-holding light lotion may be the only product you need in your morning skincare routine. Users reported that the "quick-absorbing," "non-greasy" formula firmed skin, diminished wrinkles and brightened complexions. GH's tests found it increased moisture levels in skin by 31%, more than any facial SPF 30 previously evaluated.
That’s why we love this Mario Badescu Vital with Collagen and Elastin…it was made especially for men! Stripped away from the floral scents and frilly packaging that is so common in the beauty industry, this collagen cream is a man’s no-nonsense, cut to the chase wrinkle-fighting dream. After all, isn’t it about time that the guys of the world hopped on the train towards healthier, better-looking skin?
Vitamin A and its derivatives (retinoids) are the most prevalent anti-aging ingredients on the market today. Tretinoin, a retinoid approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is only available by prescription. And although there is ample scientific evidence that shows the ability of retinoids to have a positive effect on cell gene rearrangements, fibroblast activity, and collagen synthesis, studies proving cosmetic benefits with statistical significance are lacking.

The Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is packed with all sorts of goodies, but its best feature by far lies in the results. Unlike other collagen or wrinkle creams on the market today that can take months to take effect, Elemis’ Pro-Collagen Marine Cream has been shown to improve your skin’s firmness and reduce wrinkle depth in as little as 15 days! This is a huge advantage if you have a special occasion quickly approaching on your calendar (hello springtime wedding season!) and if you want to look your absolute best.

Use hydrating and brightening eye cream. I was using one by Mychelle before I switched to Bella Aura Eye Cream, and this one really works for me. The thing with eye cream is that if it doesn’t show improvement, you use it infrequently–and thus diminishing what returns you may have had. Look for Vitamin C which is a precursor to collagen *and* has brightening powers. I use a powerful antioxidant serum like Bella Aura Antioxidant Booster or Earthwise Beauty Nap in the Meadow Serum right up until the lower lash line, and *then* layer an eye cream on top.


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.
I’ve been a subscriber to the Allure Beauty Box for almost a year now! It’s always exciting to open the box and have no idea what’s in it, and I’ve been happy with everything I have received so far! On the downside, shipping can take foreverrrrr, but that’s the only bad thing I can really think of! I’ve had no issues with customer service either. No plans on cancelling this box anytime soon!😊
