I was quite excited to check out the new Josie Maran Argan Firming Day and Night Eye Cream which launched exclusively on QVC recently. I haven’t yet seen it anywhere else aside from QVC. I kinda dig how QVC gets all these new products and exclusives first lately.
There are any number of things that I find appealing about this eye cream one of which was the twist top design that houses not one but two eye creams, one for evening and one for day.
I’ve used it nearing a month now and here are my thoughts!
Rohto, creator of all things in the eye drop arena. Not a fond fan of eye drops myself to be honest, too squeamish to have anything liquid-y hanging out around my eye area. It’s one thing to take a shower, take a swim, or get caught in the rain but it’s entirely another to voluntarily tip your head back and proceed to have drops of liquid poured into your eyes, yeah, not cool!
Rohto’s Japanese branch also has a collections of lotions and potions one of which is the new Rohto Suppin Rin Night Eye Cream. Me being all about good moisture for that pesky dry area under my eyes was all about trying this out.
The day I turned 30 I proceeded to freak the F out when I noticed weird stuff going on under my eyes. Well into my twenties all was fine but suddenly the big 3 0 creeps up and I’m seeing fine lines, puff, and all sorts of other stuff happening under there.
What went wrong?
I’ve always been of the mentality that I’d age gracefully and not sweat the little things. Yeah, right. Total panic attack. I forgot all the rules of a good hitchhiker and proceeded to PANIC like no one’s business.
Needless to say a year or two or three has gone by and I’ve been purchasing ever single lotion and potion on the market that promises to erase fine lines and preserve my youth. Is that even possible?
But here’s the good news….
Rule Number 1. Don’t Panic.
Rule Number 2. In many cases your fine lines can easily be erased and are only hanging around due to dryness.
In my case I easily got rid of my fine lines thanks to hydrating and moisturizing well and poof! gone! disappeared! Keep your eyes hydrated with a really good eye cream and you’ll be golden.
My latest pick for super, intensive, OMG I can’t believe it’s not butter eye cream would be Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream.
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?
