I’ve purchased rollers from Amazon for as little as $16. Benjamin actually chided me a little for this; though, as with anything I purchase from that vast marketplace, I pay close attention to reviews before pulling the trigger. Still, it might be wiser to buy something from a more verified retailer, like Benjamin’s own Stacked Skincare. You’ll want to replace your microroller after a few uses.


While ROC does contain retinoids and AHAs, the two most important anti-wrinkle ingredients, it’s missing sodium hyaluronate, our favorite moisturizing ingredient. An easy work-around is to add a face moisturizer to your routine — preferably one that does contain sodium hyaluronate. (Both our top picks for best face moisturizer feature it, if you need a recommendation.)

The Nubian By Juvia's box was a mess. It was crushed or something. The box itself was fine but unusable. When I opened it and powder come pouring out all over the place nothing else was like that. Seems someone either made a mistake or didn't care. Very unhappy about it. Is it possible you can send another one? I'd be happy to send the mess back to You if You would like.
Unlike some anti-aging creams that only intended for people with certain skin types (moisture-rich for dry skin, quick-absorbing for oily skin), Cindy Crawford’s Meaningful Beauty Beyond collagen cream was manufactured for folks of every skin type! Whether you have super oily skin that is prone to breakouts, dry skin that tends to flake when you skip a day or two of moisturizing, or combination skin that falls somewhere in between, this nighttime repairing cream is for you!

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.
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.
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!!!
We're all for splurging on a so-worth-it moisturizer or serum, but the truth is that you don't need to shell out a ton of money to take care of your skin. In fact, many drugstore products are packed with some of the top dermatologist-recommended anti-agers, such as retinol, hyaluronic acid, and niacinamide. These ingredients help soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles, boost hydration, and erase dark spots to make your skin look younger than its years. Below, some of the best anti-aging products you can order on Amazon—all for $20 or less.
Use gentle strokes on the eye area. I like to use light pressure and plenty of serum/cream. Use light, shimmering tapping (imagine doing jazz fingers). Be sure to press the serum into the skin instead of just pushing it around. Finish up by drawing a horizontal figure 8 (or the infinity symbol!) around the boundaries of your eye area–this is good for lymphatic drainage.

I have never had such an issue so early on with like… any company. Not like this. Toward the end of my emails I just told them to please cancel my subscription I don’t care about January. God knows what’s going to happen now. I kind of would like the Jan. box because I want to try Sunday Riley, but the amount of issues going on over there I’m thinking it’s best to just end things now.

“It is luxurious and thick with a lovely, light scent. Apply it every night to a full face, neck and décolleté and awake to plump, hydrated skin every morning. It's a fabulous product at an amazing price point," said Marie Watkinson, a massage therapist, beauty expert and founder of the mobile spa company, Spa Chicks On The Go. Her celebrity clients include Leslie Jones, Marcia Gay Harden and Allison Janney.
If coping with crow’s feet and laugh lines weren’t traumatic enough, there are thousands of so-called “miracle creams” on the market that claim to completely diminish the signs of aging in what seems like the blink of an eye. If spending hours in the beauty aisle of your local department store or scrolling through pages of products online isn’t exactly your idea of a fun Friday night, don’t stress!
"First of all... What sort of magic is in this container? I have been using the Olay Regenerist night cream for about a year, and I just decided to try this product out. In one week wrinkles are clearing up. Especially in the area of my forehead. I live in a country that is very hot and humid and pores can get clogged easily. This works perfectly. ​​​​​​" —De Bajan Girl
I got the Bliss too although I’m not crazy about any bliss products. There’s something in them that my skin doesn’t like. I always like my Allure boxes. I think they mix it up better than the rest. I cancelled sephora play right after I got December’s awful box, the worst of the year! I never complain that about most boxes because seriously, they don’t cost alot.
As you age, the tissue structures and muscles supporting your eyelids weaken. The skin may start to sag, and fat that is normally confined to the area around the eye (orbit) can move into the area below your eyes. Also, the space below your eyes can accumulate fluid, making the under-eye area appear puffy or swollen. Several factors cause or worsen this effect, including:
While most anti-wrinkle creams focus on tightening and sculpting the skin, the Elemis Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream restores your youthful glow by supporting the respiration and oxygenation of your skin cells. There is a reason we call oxygen the source of all life, after all: this essential element promotes re-growth of skin cells to support your skin’s natural suppleness and elasticity.

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.


If you are fighting both the early signs of aging and the remnants of adolescence – i.e., breakouts, then this is a superb choice for you. The LiftActive cream is non-comedogenic, meaning it will not block your pores and lead to acne and breakouts. Plus, the mineral water can help restore a healthy pH level in your skin, meaning your skin becomes more healthy overall. By restoring your skin’s health, you may find you are more resilient against acne as well – it’s a win-win!
Specifically, the French Melon extract works as a powerful anti-oxidant to help ward off future damage from free radicals. Combined with Retinol, Vitamin A, and Hexapeptide-9, all of which can stimulate the production of natural collagen by your skin, overall skin firmness is increased easily and effortlessly while the length and depth of wrinkles are decreased over time.
The consistency, in my jar, is thick like pomade/defining paste for hair. This confused me since the instructions on the label say to “shake well before each use.” I’ve used it only at night since it is so thick and greasy no matter how little I used. No more than 1 hour after applying it I noticed that it becomes grainy on my skin and when I’d rub it particles would fall off like dandruff. It reminds me of how glue from a glue stick feels after it dries on your fingers and begins falling off.
