I bought the Brickell Anti Aging Cream after receiving a free sample kit. At 47 years old I’ve never thought of taking care of my skin until I looked in the mirror one morning and saw deep furrow wrinkles running across my forehead. Where did they come from? They made me look so damn old!!! I tried Brickell Anti Aging cream and the results were immediate. It tightened and evened my skin almost instantly. It greatly reduced those deep sun weathered wrinkles I noticed on my forehead. After one week the wrinkles were almost completely gone. I don’t feel or look like anywhere close to a guy closing in on 50. If you’re going to take care of your body and overall appearance why neglect your skin? Following the Brickell regimement has made a huge difference.
Don't let the water gel formula of this product fool you. The Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel restores moisture and helps plump the under-eye area with hyaluronic acid. This product may be beneficial with people who have oily skin. "Many moisturizers are too heavy or can cause acne [for people with oily skin], which is why I love hyaluronic acid gels," says dermatologist Dr. William Kwan.
Bags under eyes can include mild swelling, saggy or loose skin and/or dark circles. While you may not like the way these bags look, they are usually harmless and do not require medical attention; however, if you experience severe and persistent bags accompanied by redness, itching or pain, you may want to see your doctor. Also, if you notice redness, itching or pain on other parts of your body, such as your legs, you could be having an allergic reaction and need medical attention. Your doctor will want to rule out other possible causes that can contribute to the swelling, such as thyroid disease or an infection.
"I have spent up to $90 for 1 fluid oz. of anti-aging serums. A good one makes the perfect 'foundation' for a skin care regimen. I take pride in the compliments I get for being 63 and having the skin of a baby. This product, Aveeno Absolutely Ageless, is absolutely perfect. It smells beautiful, goes on smoothly, and the affect is almost immediate. Your skin will look plumper and fine lines are gone. I love it." —IrisFromOhio
So, you slather your skin from head to toe with sunscreen, but you avoid getting your SPF too close to your eyes. It may sound reasonable, since you don’t want to deal with stinging, burning eyes. But that doesn’t negate your need for sun protection in that area. For an easy solution, seek out an eye cream that’s formulated with SPF. Additionally, make sure you wear the proper accessories. When you’ll be exposed to the sun, don a pair of large sunglasses that provide UV protection with a wide brimmed hat. Besides defending against sun damage, proper sun protection can help prevent under-eye bags.

Worst experience with a beauty box subscription I have ever had. The first box did not even come with any of the detailed products for my first month and I only recieved four products total that was supposedly including the mystery gift. I did not recieve my first box until they took out a second payment for another month. They say that its only first month with a later ship date...nope thats a lie third month and I still dont reciece my box until almost into anothet month or into the next month. Here is the funny thing, no one knows where your box is either, i have been lied to and just flat out told I dont know. I ecen had a cusyomer service person hang up the phone on me at one point asking questions on my first month of the subscription because she was too busy. It was all of 5 minutes trying to understand how there box works as oppose to all of my many other beauty box subscriptions. With all the conveniences dont believe when they tell you they will send you a previous box to accomodate for all the inconveniences, I waited for three months for the september 2017 box I never got. Finally I spoke with the supervisor Josie and well now I understand why the customer service is in shambles I think she was the worst to have a title of supervisor in customer service of all. I would much rather wait on an email from boxycharm, or chat with birchbox than to email with no responses for a week and when you call get the rudest service I have ever experienced. Gave me such a bad taste in my mouth for allure in general ew! Dobt do it go for a box that has the same amoubt of product (sample size) for 5 dollars less like ipsy, sephora play, or birchbox. Save your time and heartache.
Awesome Box, Bad Customer Service! I gave the Allure Beauty Box a try for a year and while 8/10 times I loved the items I was mailed, the customer service and lack there of was a deal breaker for me. When they send out the 'spoiler' email it was always without a link, the tracking number came more often than not after my package arrived and after January's huge SNAFU (first they send out a mass email that they have canceled your order, then they send another that reads they have refunded your money and will be sending out a free box, but when this message is opened it says nothing of the sort, and finally an "oops" message stating the box will ship "soon" which for me was another 2 weeks. I decided to cancel my subscription, because what should be a fun, enjoyable treat was becoming nothing but stress.
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.
“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.
I saw Allure online and it offered $5 off. It came with full-size products. The quality of the products was great. I am disabled so to have this delivered to my door each month is wonderful. I can have fun each month playing with my kit. It is only $15 a month and so exciting to receive. You never know what you will receive and I look forward to it each month. The Skinfix clay cleaner is wonderful and makes my face feel so soft. I also like the eyeshadow color and ease of use. But I wish all products were full size. I would also like it designed more for me and what I would want each month. So far, all the products have been very good. The eye shadow and lipstick colors are not always my color though. I wish there was more black eye circle concealers too. Overall it is good. I love it!
This innovative formula targets Collagen I and Collagen III (otherwise known as the “Youth Collagen”) to bring back your skin’s natural elasticity and firmness. Specifically designed to combat the depth, length, and width of wrinkles, this Collagex-CE formula drastically reduces the appearance of aging, targeting collagen to improve your skin’s texture and strengthen your skin’s barrier.
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.
Alas, under-eye bags are not a feature that improves with age. Now, many people get dark circles when they have a bad night’s sleep–occasionally, but not severely. I’ve had a combination of under-eye bags *and* dark circles since college. If you’re wondering what that even looks like, imagine curtain valances (the half-moon drapes that top your curtains). Thank you, Dad.
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.

Retinoids recently experienced some stiff competition from bakuchiol. The plant-based ingredient was demonstrated to have antioxidant properties similar to those of retinol, which is what prompted scientists to investigate how it would compare, explains cosmetic chemist Perry Romanowski. What they discovered was that the two have very similar anti-aging effects, but bakuchiol doesn't come with the potentially irritating side effects that are an issue with many retinoids. It's the standout ingredient in this treatment, which hydrates, fights fine lines and wrinkles, and helps fade spots and discoloration, too.
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!).
Reduce the amount of salt you use in everyday cooking. Try cutting it in half or cutting it out entirely - you'd be surprised how flavorful food can be without the addition of a lot of salt. Try cutting back the salt you use in baked goods and avoiding salt altogether at dinnertime, since your body won't have time to balance things out before you sleep.
Each month’s box contents will vary, but the company states that they will all contain at least five products and occasionally six or seven. Each product will be unique, though some boxes can have different variations of a similar item. For instance, the November 2018 box include a Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment Mask, Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask, and a Lapcos Metallic Sheet Mask in Pearl.
You are paying for a sub box that is supposed to be a mystery with a value of $50 or more and 5 products. They don’t owe us any other spoilers or specific products, unless we sign up for a special deal like the S.R. promo or Caudalie. Lots of boxes do variations and some of them don’t release them until after it’s too late to cancel. Allure is giving variation info a full 2 weeks before the deadline to cancel. And they are giving us a bonus item…
BONUS: Unfortunately, skin problems often strike regardless of our age. If, like so many of us, you find yourself struggling with the pitfalls of acne and wrinkles at the same time, then the Baebody Retinol Moisturizer Cream may soon become your new best friend. While it is not specifically indicated for use on acne, it contains many ingredients such as retinol and vitamin E which can reduce the severity and occurrence of spots.
What can you do? There’s not a lot you can do for bags, though fillers may help raise the skin to counteract sagginess. Essentially, these fillers elevate the surrounding skin to the level of the fat to make the texture smooth and uniform again. Radiofrequency treatment is another alternative to tighten and smooth the area. The procedure heats the skin to induce collagen and elastin formation. Dr. Engelman recommends four rounds per treatment, and once a year maintenance. Each session costs around $500 to $600.
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.
Ladies it’s allure who is the fault! I just got an email stating there is a delay in shipping! They won’t give me shipping notification until next week when I’ve been subscribed to them for over a year! I’m so upset and will not be returning until they change their shipping notifications . They use to tell me that when they charged us every month that it was meaning that the box is about to ship. So I was charged in the 4th and it hasn’t even left their facility 😡 I wouldn’t even be mad if they hadn’t have charged me and get my hopes up.
If you're into essential oils, you'll be happy to know there are several oils that combat under-eye puffiness and dark circles. Try mixing an essential oil with coconut oil and rubbing it under your eyes. Rose geranium, fennel, lavender, German chamomile and rosemary essential oil are hailed as the best essential oils for getting rid of under-eye bags.

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.
So, if it typically takes you 20 minutes to burn and you’re using an SPF 30 sunscreen, you can expect protection for up to 600 minutes (10 hours). This, of course, depends on the time of day, whether you are sweating or swimming, the severity of the rays, etc. However you will only be protected up to the maximum. It is important that you take into account sweat, bathing and sun cream absorption though.

I agree completely. I’m pretty bent about waiting this long particularly when they took my money way earlier than ever before! 99% of the time it’s always on the 9th regardless of the day of the week in the entire almost 2 years I’ve been a loyal subscriber. This month, I was charged on the 4th. What they should have done is send out emails the day they realized the nail polish was going to be late, send the boxes the way they were and then ship the nail polish separately or in next month’s box. Their supplier issue isn’t my fault nor is it my fault that they advertised the living daylights out of this box and now can’t keep up. I do believe they are lying. If my neighbor who is a new subscriber, (this is her 1st month), got both of her boxes, where is mine? She got both on the same day, Amazon did not have the polish but the through allure did? 🤔 New customers got there’s and so did MSA but not their long time, loyal customers? Bad way to handle it
