Hello luvah’s 💋, welcome to another session of what’s most important, my favorite things! Yes, I have a slight case of narcisscism. I am aware.
Today, I will go over 3 essential parts of my daily skin care routine. Two of the items you have already seen on previous posts, but that’s the point, DUH, they’re my favs. LOL.
When I am not a delicious mealinin filled color of cocoa and my skin isn’t filled with the greatness of Vitamin D that the sun offers me, my under eye skin is the bane of my existence. Dark circles along with a combination of a vampire’s sleep pattern and shall I dare say, aging 😱, have found me concentrating on the area under my eyes a lot more these days. Hence, why 2 out of my 3 favorite items today will be for the area under the eyes.
First up, Perfectly Posh Impish Eyes De-Puffing Eye Serum. No real in depth explanation need here, it does exactly what it says. It de-puffs my 2am bedtime/7am bed rise sleep pattern puffy eyes. ( I am a perpetual night owl.)
After washing my face, I apply directly to mostly dry skin immediately. This serum is like a light gel. I apply it from the orbital bone, (Check out my Willy P education kicking in LOL), which is the bone below your eye, up to right below my lower lash line. I let it sit and allow my skin to soak up the caffeine that jump starts the de-puffing. I find applying a cold and/or frozen spoon a couple minutes after applying the serum helps tremendously. (Thank you to the girls at Gregg’s Beauty Supply for that tip). Anything to decrease the odds of me looking like a sad puffy raccoon.
Next, is a new find I came across recently on a trip to Walgreens for nothing in which I should have been in the isle in which this product is sold. LOL. I obvi have a problem. I am also aware of this one too.
Anywho, this Triple Age Renewal Eye Serum by Botanics is a great lil burst of skin revitliazation for the under eye.
This product is a smooth cream that “reduces the appearance of deep lines, wrinkles and puffiness.” That it does indeed! With a combination of Vitamins A, C , E and the plant extract of Purple Orchid, it really does improve the tightness of the skin. Now, unlike the Perfectly Posh product, this is not a quick fix. It is intended to improve skin elasticity over a period of time. On most of the reviews I have read, most people see results between 3 to 4 weeks. You are to apply it once in the morning and once again at night. I, personally, have been using it for 2 weeks and have noticed tighter, more full under eye skin. So, so far so good.

Last, but never least, my all time favorite product for months on end now since I received a sample in an Ipsy bag, OGX Argan Oil of Morocco In-Shower Oil.
When I tell you that I use this for and on every part of my body it isn’t a joke! I use it in my hair daily & during deep conditioning, in the shower, in my bath water, mixed in with my lotion and even on the beach to replenish the moisture after a dip in the ocean. It literally goes everywhere with me and on me. LOL.
It’s super light weight, smells amazing, and hydrated and repairs all that it touches. For $9 bucks at your nearest drug store, you cannot beat it. It is the oil of the Gods I tell you ❤️.
If your eyes are looking and feeling a tad vulnerable these days, 😂, I highly suggest the two products reviewed for a quick boost for your under eye skin.
The OGX oil is simply LIFE to skin, hair and nails. I thank Ipsy for that awesome find.
So there ya have it loves, a few of my favorite things.
