"Caffeinated tea, which contains natural tannins, is a mild diuretic and long used by grandmothers and runway models for reducing eye puffiness. Soak two tea bags in warm water, then chill the bags for a few minutes in the refrigerator. Place one tea bag on each eye for five minutes, and your eyes will feel fresh and look brighter," says Karen Hammerman, a dermatologist in New York City.

After using a wrinkle cream, “patients sometimes break out and think that means they’re allergic to the product as a whole as opposed to just one ingredient,” says Dr. Ford. The most likely culprit in these anti-aging products, she says, is actually vitamin E, an irritant that also showed up a lot in our review on the best lip balm. So before you bag wrinkle creams altogether, look for products that don’t contain vitamin E, commonly listed as tocopherol. If you find that you’re still having a bad reaction, Dr. Ford advises that you try a product that has just one of the powerhouse anti-agers.


For best results thoroughly cleanse your face and apply a serum first and rub in until absorbed then take a small amount of the Anti Aging Cream on your finger and massage into your skin in a circular motion until it is fully rubbed in, if you need to add more, do so, a little at a time. Please make sure you Avoid direct contact with your eyes and do not swallow.
“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.
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:

People are saying that Allure is supposed to get them on the 7th and they will ship with the Jan boxes. I think it’s funny that it seems like they waited an extra long time to send these out to weed out the scammers who only got the one box for the high-priced free goodie. I have had allure for over a year, and I cancelled after the Nov box bc I wasn’t interested in the Dec box. So when this promo popped up, I said what the heck and resigned back up. I got a second Nov box, which came in handy for extras in gifts at Christmas, and ended up really liking the Dec box. I haven’t gotten the CEO yet, but if they do end up sending it with the Jan box, I’ll be pleasantly surprised. If I don’t get it, oh well. I still got my money’s worth and then some.
"I apply the serum every morning — its powerful antioxidants brighten my complexion and help prevent UV and environmental damage. Then comes the gel, which contains hyaluronic acid, which gets ‘set’ over the smaller molecular nutrients and vitamins in the serum. The combination leaves my skin glowing, radiant and perfectly prepped for sunscreen, the final and most important step of my skin care routine,” says Dr. Jessica Weiser, M.D., a New York City-based dermatologist.
Our favorite part of this wrinkle cream is that it warns you (in the directions) to be careful of the sun while using this product. It points out that retinol makes skin particularly sensitive to the sun’s harmful UV rays and recommends that you wear additional sunscreen. That’s the first we’ve seen such a warning, and even if it’s just precaution, we appreciate the care for safety.
Never, ever, EVER go to sleep with a full face of makeup on your face! We know it can be frustrating and time-consuming to wash away that killer smoky eye at the end of the evening (especially after a few cocktails), but trust us: your face will thank you in the morning! Not only does makeup prohibit your skin’s natural abilities to breathe and create a breeding ground for bacteria and blemishes, sleeping in those harsh chemicals can cause eye irritation and even infections. Yuck!
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.
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…
I REALLY hope it’s a new Wander mascara! I’m getting the Unlashed in my GBP this month. If I receive any of the other extra items other than the Mally lip gloss I’ll be much happier with the February box. I never seem to get lucky with colors on lippies (still trying to laugh about the awful pale lilac/white Smash is lippy I received, I think from Boxy.)
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.

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.
For centuries people have reverted to obscure beauty rituals claiming to be the source of the fountain of youth– Cleopatra was even known to bathe in donkey milk. But to age gracefully there isn't just one secret, it takes a collection of products that will restore, protect, and regenerate your skin. To help you on your quest of turning back time, we've rounded up the best anti-aging products to introduce to your routine.

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?
Drinking enough water and getting enough sleep can help you get rid of under eye bags but sometimes you need a little more power. That’s where creams, serums, rollers, and the like come in. The skin under your eyes is thin and fragile, so any treatment needs to be gentle but effective. The aim is to delicately plump sagging, reduce puffiness and smooth, tighten, hydrate and brighten skin.
Unlike other collagen creams on the market, the Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream disappears into your skin because it has a gel-cream texture that is easier and therefore quicker to absorb. This leaves your skin feeling refreshed and restored without the clumpy or greasy residue that is all too common in the skincare department. The Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is a great choice for people of all skin types (including those with combination or oily skin!).
Having been blessed with mixed skin, I have struggled to find the right facial cream for my skin type. In fact, up until recently I all but gave up on finding the right product as one after the other would yield disspoainting results (e.g. cause breakouts or just stay on like a slimy film). My friend recommended this product to me, and I am so glad I gave it a shot. The cream applies super easily and dries so so fast. Skin feels rejuvenated. I apply it before going to bed, and it's my new favorite nightly ritual. Highly recommend you give it a try, I will order again!
Find anti-wrinkle creams that provide the supple, smooth skin you desire. While most anti-aging creams are for your entire face, some eye creams are specifically formulated to minimize the fine lines and nourish the skin around the eyes. Try the anti-aging cream formulas that include ingredients to restore elasticity, stimulate collagen production or firm sag-prone areas. There are even anti-aging hair products designed to shield your hair from the effects of the environment. Select the anti-aging product that will help you smooth, soften and hydrate your skin.

This is primarily a hydrating facial sun screen. The ingredients are meant to protect your skin from the sun. But in doing so that, in and of itself is a form of anti-wrinkle protection. There are a few minor ingredients that will also help with the desired anti-aging effect, such as glycerin, for example. But maintaining a hydrated skin, even in direct sunlight, will go a long way to keeping your skin’s youthful appearance.

This night cream targets the three most visible effects of aging to your skin by smoothing wrinkles, evening skin tone, and improving skin tone. In order to do this as effectively as it does, Neutrogena has created a formula specifically for these tasks called Hexinol. Among the ingredients in this cream are some we recognize for the task; Vitamin C and shea butter.


According to WebMD, collagen molecules are too large to be absorbed by the skin. So while some of the products we have reviewed contain collagen as one of their ingredients, this will likely work more towards helping your skin to retain its moisture, which can still have fantastic anti-aging benefits. However, as well as providing and helping your skin to retain moisture, pro-collagen creams can encourage your skin to increase its natural collagen production – firming it and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. These pro-collagen creams can be very successful, and some even promise results within a few weeks!
I received the Jan 2019 bag, it shipped on the 29th & got to my door by the 5th at 3:00PM (super fast compared to allure) and its amazing! Everything came in great condition EXCEPT THE RED BAG, like alot of other people it was torn on one side. (Tip-You can flat iron it and reseal it to make it useable again) I received: both sunday riley products, the NCLA Call my agent nail polish, Ouai scrub, Doucce lip crayon, mally eye shadow stick, and the Amika hair mask. (Which I'm pretty sure was all of amazons variation) I haven't seen the micro sponges in an Amazon box yet.. Oh & of course the magazine! Besides the bag being ripped which to me, isnt a big deal, that's not why I bought this box, I received it fast, nothing spilled, everything was great. I would still recommend (:
