Hey everyone! It came to my attention last week (while I was staring scrutinously close at my face in the mirror) that I'm getting old. I mean, I'm 22 years old already. And as we all know, after 22 comes 30, and after 30 comes DEATH.
I'm only kidding.
Anyway, I noticed that I'm starting to get some fine lines around my eye area, on top of my already horrid dark circles that even pounds of concealer won't cover, and I decided that now is time to take action! Because if not now, when?
Now, you may be thinking "22 is a little young to be worrying about wrinkle creams and stuff," but that is certainly not true. Preventative skincare is a good thing to practice at any age, not just when you're in your 30's +. I didn't practice it as a teen - I rarely wore sun screen, I UV tanned a lot, and lots of other stuff that can contribute to early skin aging, not to mention squinting from having bad eyesight and all those late nights and early mornings that I now have under my belt being a mom and all.
|here they are in all their glory. no shop except to crop + add watermark although idek who would want to steal a picture of my dark circles.|
So yesterday, I put Caleb in his stroller, hit up Starbucks, and then I marched our happy asses down to Rite Aid to check out their skincare aisle. They had a plethora of creams and ointments and salves all claiming to cure wrinkles, fade spots, and even do your laundry (I wish).
After about 20 minutes of perusing and reading and comparing, I decided on two products by Garnier Nutritioniste: their Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller and their Ultra-Lift Anti-Wrinkle Eye Roller.
|It also helped that they were on sale for BOGO 1/2 off :)|
Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller
Instantly: eyes look renewed and refreshed.
In One Week: under-eye puffiness is reduced and women saw dark circles diminished
With Continued Use: The severity of puffiness is further reduced and dark circles stay minimized.
Ultra-Lift Anti-Wrinkle Eye Roller
Instantly: skin feels smoother and firmer
2 weeks: crow's feet and fine lines are visibly reduced
With Continued Use: wrinkles and crow's feet are smoothed; skin around the eye area feels firmer.

You use them twice a day; once in the morning after your morning skincare routine, and once in the evening after your evening skincare routine.
I used them last night and this morning, I obviously haven't noticed any difference yet but I am going to take a picture each Tuesday for 4 weeks to track the progress and update everyone with my results! I really hope this junk works, ahaha. I'm sure it will at least a little bit. I rarely purchase products without reading the reviews, and this stuff had mostly good reviews.
Also, I bought some new oral care products, because I needed new toothpaste and mouthwash. I'm not satisfied with the whiteness of my teeth, so I got the Crest 3D White Vivid toothpaste and mouthwash, and I use those both twice a day (of course).
I'm going for the Audrina Patridge look. She always had the best teeth out of all out of the entire The Hills cast.
Anyway, that's all for now. I'm going to try and film a haul video because I got some other goodies yesterday and last week as well that I never posted about, and also a "My Favorite Drugstore Products" video - so stay tuned for that!!
PS. Here's a little bonus picture that I got a good laugh about at Rite Aid! It's a discreet vibrator!
Talk to you later, dolls,
