When I turned 30 I noticed fine lines beginning to form under my eyes and proceeded to freak the F out. I’ve always said to myself growing old and aging was no big deal but honestly when you start experiencing it for yourself, I promise, you will run around googling fine lines, hitting up your local skincare counter, and begging the skincare gods to please send a miracle.
After spending a gazillion dollars on lotions and potions, I finally figured out that my fine lines under my eyes were caused by dryness and that I could easily diminish them by keeping them as hydrated as possible.
That’s when I spent a few dollars on a large jar of Skinfood Avocado Rich Eye Balm and lived happily ever after it.
You know it’s Summer when The Guild starts pimpin’ their new Season. Yay! Anyone see the auto-tuned mad recap of Season 3?
Fawkes was my fav character evers! Hey, if you’re as old as me you totally appreciated Wil Wheaton, fellow geek in arms, appearing on The Guild. I’ve had a crush on Wil Wheaton since I was nine. I mean he was all the rage when I was growing up…we didn’t have soggy milk and bread Justin Bieber types, we had geeks like Wil Wheaton yo!
Sorry totally had to get my geek on there for a sec…
Anyway, back to being a grown up. A grown up with wrinkles.
Damn, life is so unfair.
A few months ago I ordered Mally Perfect Prep Eye Cooling Gel System…remember? I was in wait list hell for a while and I thought for sure it would never come but by some wonderful chance I got it a few weeks later, better late than not at all right?
I’m one of those types that’s a little wary of putting butt cream under my eyes, yes I said butt. The Muse suffers from a fair bit of puffiness come morning so she’s always on a merry trip to discover the next best thing to ease the puff. I can’t tell you how many reviews, articles, posts, and such have recommended hemorrhoid cream to do the deed…but I am not do desperate I have to resort to butt cream to get my eyes back in order again…
I can’t do it, I simply can’t. I don’t care how models SWEAR by it, I simply can’t bring myself to slather hemorrhoid cream under my eyes.
No way, no how.
Which is why my adventures have now led me onto the next best thing that promises to ease the puffiness.
Soap & Glory You Won’t Believe Your Eyes Serum….hmmm…another gimmick? A good deed sent from the gods above? Something to ease the puff?
