Frequent wake ups, sleepless nights, sick kids, not enough time in the day... all part of the job. My oldest was up all night Thursday throwing up - helping to prompt this post. While I wear my "mom beauty marks" and aging Irish skin with pride, it doesn't mean I don't love a little help from my favorite products. I may not be able to get my kids to sleep in and 6 hours a night is my normal, but you bet I use products to attempt to look more refreshed. Good eye concealer and a cup of Bulletproof coffee always gives me extra pep in my step.
When it comes to eye creams and concealers, I'm a bit of a product junkie. I love trying new products, but I also don't mess with a good thing when I find ones I like. Everyone's skin is different. Some of us have crazy crows feet (me), bags and puffiness (me again), some dark circles etc. With that said, here's 5 products I really like and usually always have in rotation.
1. IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealing Pot
I use the light shade in this one. I find this so lightweight and unlike so many others, this really doesn't get caught in or highlight my wrinkles.
2. Rodan & Fields REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream
I've definitely seen results using this one in terms of firmness and crows feet. I use this at night.
3. Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Eye Clothes
I'm obsessed with these clothes. Not only do they take my eye makeup off with ease, but they also leave my eyes feeling refreshed and less puffy. You can shop Rodan + Fields with your local rep or shop with my friend Angie here. She's fab and can answer any of your questions.
4. Dr. Brandt No More Baggage
I put this underneath my concealer and immediately feel it (feels cool and tightening). Couple things to note about this product thought - It will look orangey when it goes on, and know that It is aimed more for bags and puffiness not so much the dark circles.
5. Beautycounter Eye Rescue
I've been trying to make more of an effort to use safer products. I'm pretty good about fueling my body with healthy foods, but I admit I haven't always been as cognizant about what I'm feeding my skin. I'm a big fan of Beautycounter and have been using more and more of their products. This Eye Rescue Cream is fabulous and does a great job with out harsh chemicals. Definitely a great alternative especially for all the pregnant and nursing moms out there.
6. Beautycounter Touchup Skin Concealer Pen
This concealing pen is also one of my favorites from Beautycounter. I use the fair shade for reference. Its easy to apply, lightweight and the pen design is so helpful.
Any of these in your makeup bag? I'd love to hear about your favorites. Thanks as always for stopping by!
