I have been VERY good (I think) about buying new skin care products. Meaning I have been buying no new skin care for experimenting since mid 2011!
The only thing I buy are things I am 100 percent out of every single back up for.
I dug into the skin care drawer, and pulled out a few "new" items to add to my routine. I am determined to finish all the countless products I had purchased in my past before buying anything new.
First up is something that I did recently purchase because I was truly out of all anti wrinkle eye creams in my skin stash
Shisiedo's Future Solutions Ex:
My first heavy duty anti wrinkle eye cream. All the ones I have tried in the past were more for prevention, now that I have crows feet (despite all my efforts) I decided to kick it up a notch.
Shisiedo skin care and I have a luke warm history but I have heard excellent things about their anti aging products.
I have been using this for about 1.5 months and see a difference. My laugh lines are not as deep as they once were, they don't seem to be extending any longer, and this cream seems to be keeping them at bay!
The packaging states you can use this around your eyes and laugh lines around your mouth but I only use it on my eyes really
The cream itself is incredibly thick so you don't need much per use, so this incredibly expensive cream ( I admit it, it really is...) seems to WORK and I currently have no regrets at all about this baby
La Roche Posay Effeclar K:
I've used this for about 3 weeks, and after the first night I broke out. Ahh the familiar "let's purge" process. Though it looks like crap on the face, this is actually a good thing
(I keep repeating that to myself)
I know it's just bringing all my impurities to the surface. I cannot comment on how well it will control my skin as we are still in the bumpy beginning stages, but I will see at the end if I prefer the Effeclar K version of an anti acne treatment of Effeclar Duo. A previously used item that I love!
Clinique High Impact Mascara:
I have a few mascaras in my collection but I always only open one and use one. I picked this up from one of the Sephora sales as a recommendation from the Pixiwoo sisters and must say, LIKING IT!!
I've never had much luck with Clinique mascara's but this one gives nice natural volume, slight length, and looks amazing once the lashes are curled
I purchased these today. Spring means my oily T zone is breaking to the surface and loose powder is showing to be no match! Once I complete my current toner I will be using Lush's Tea Tree Water which is one of my favorite Lush products.
I also grabbed a lip scrub by the cash register. Mint Julips! I'm going to have some sweet lips!
