Brighten your eyes with Dermologica Stress Positive Eye Lift


Just when I start thinking that there’s no eye cream that is truly different from the rest along comes Dermologica’s new Stress Positive Eye Lift. Not only is this an eye cream but it’s a mask and an anti-aging device.

There’s more than meets the eye with the clever packaging of Stress Positive Eye Lift

The first thing to notice is the applicator. I’ve had this applicator on other eye creams and it’s a wonderful method of soothing your eyes and spreading the cream easily. But Dermologica has a unique use for the applicator.

You actually use this as a tool to help lift the skin around your eyes. My friend Cindy from Prime Beauty has great application pictures so you can see what to do. There’s also a YouTube video designed to teach you the most effective way to get use from the applicator..

I’ve been using this day and night. In the morning I find that it’s very helpful with my eternal puffiness and dark circles. It helps the skin around my eyes look more luminous and less like I had another toss/turn night.

In the evening I’m thrilled that it behaves like a mask for my eyes since it’s on for so long. Daytime use gives this a more instant effect while nighttime use is for the long term.

Some ingredients to note are

  • Wild Indigo See actives to brighten and help visibly reduce under eye circles
  • Sea Water Extract and Arctic Algae counter the look of puffiness.
  • Fermented Yeast and a unique Hyaluronic Acid blend firm skin to help generate that lifting effect.
  • Bioactive Diglucosyl Gallic Acid works with your skin’s natural microorganisms to brighten and energize.
  • There’s no artificial fragrance or color to this.

See that little plastic piece at the bottom of the photo? That’s to help you get every drop of this wonderful eye lift out. As you notice that you are using it up add the applicator to the end to help squeeze up the cream, just like you’d do with a toothbrush tube. You don’t want to waste any of this magic.

If your eyes are showing the stress of life then this new eye lift from Dermologica is on your side to visibly brighten and energize. —  Marcia

Wake up and smell the coffee with IT Confidence in an Eye Cream

IT Cosmetics Confidence in an Eye CreamEarlier this year, I bought a new alarm clock. My old one is REALLY old – I think I bought it in 2000. It’s an atomic alarm clock, so it automatically changes for daylight savings time. The problem is, a few years ago the dates for daylight savings time changed…but no one told my old atomic alarm clock. So I finally bought a new clock…and then never changed them out!  So, when the time change actually happened, I overslept because my clock didn’t change. Then a few weekends ago, it DID change – meaning I got up an hour early. Why didn’t I just plug in the new alarm clock that I just bought?? It’s still a mystery. But luckily my face didn’t show the effects of my screwed up sleeping cycles thanks in part to some awesome coffee, and, thanks in part to my IT Cosmetics Confidence in an Eye Cream.

I think that IT Cosmetics is psychic, because they sent me a super cool personalized coffee tin with some premium coffee and this coffee mug – how did they know I was going to screw up daylight savings time not just once this year, but twice?? They also sent the IT Confidence in an Eye Cream, which is finally available at IT Cosmetics online and ULTA as of the first of this month.IT Cosmetics You Are Brew-Tiful

There are lots of reasons to try this beautiful eye cream:

  • Formulated with proprietary Anti-Aging Armour Rejuvenating Concentrate™, plus Ceramides to restore, Chrysin to help reduce the appearance of inflammation, Peptides and Collagen to smooth the look of lines and wrinkles, Avocado to nourish, Hyaluronic Acid and Squalane for powerful hydration, Licorice for visible brightening and Caffeine to reduce the look of puffiness.
  • Transforms your eyes with clinically shown hydration—perfect for all skin types!

    Caffeine is a great ingredient for an eye cream because it reduces puffiness and makes eyes look younger and more awake. Paired with an excellent cup of coffee in my Coffee-dence in a Cup mug, the IT Confidence in an Eye Cream gives me immediate results, and over time the anti-aging ingredients make a real difference.

The Jojoba Company Firming Eye Balm

The Jojoba Company Cucumber & Guava Firming Eye Balm

The Jojoba Company Cucumber & Guava Firming Eye Balm

Two things drew me to The Jojoba Company Cucumber & Guava Firming Eye Balm when it was offered for review. I was immediately drawn to it because of The Jojoba Company which is a skincare brand I admire and have reviewed several items from. I have a collection of products which often get used no matter what else I’m testing. Next take the fact that it’s a FIRMING EYE BALM and I’m all over it.

The Jojoba Company Cucumber & Guava Firming Eye Balm

The Jojoba Company Cucumber & Guava Firming Eye Balm

I am a dedicated eye cream user, day and night. I think being so enamored with eye creams and balms has helped my eyes belie my age. The Jojoba Company Cucumber & Guava Firming Eye Balm is one that definitely helps this way because it’s known for rehydrating dry skin. Once upon a time my skin was oily as could be but age has changed that.

The Jojoba Company Cucumber & Guava Firming Eye Balm

The Jojoba Company Cucumber & Guava Firming Eye Balm

I have pros and cons about this eye cream but the pros way outweigh the cons.

  • The Jojoba Company Cucumber & Guava Firming Eye Balm contains many efficient ingredients to soothe the delicate skin around my eyes: cucumber, guava, aloe vera, jojoba, and pomegranate.
  • It feels wonderful on my eyes and a little goes a long way. I’ve used it both on my lids and undereyes with emphasis on those pesky crows feet. I notice less puffiness especially in the morning when I awake. My eye area feels very soft. And I’m using way less concealer.
  • I love the packaging. It’s so sanitary and I get the right amount for both eyes with one gentle pump.

The Jojoba Company grows their own jojoba so we know there’s a purity in the products that can be relied upon. According to The Jojoba Company “That means that skin lets jojoba deliver its goodness all the way down to the cellular and matrix levels. It is naturally antibiotic, antiviral, antifungal, analgesic, anti-inflammatory and hypoallergenic.  Jojoba also contains the healing vitamins A, D and E and Omega 6 and 9 essential fatty acids. Jojoba does not oxidize and is very stable.”jojoba co eye balm ingredients

My con? You know I’m not a fan of fragrance and it takes me about 15 minutes before I don’t notice it. But you know what? I can tolerate it for that short amount of time since I love the effects of this eye balm. I doubt most of you would notice it but I’m extra sensitive. The fragrance does make me aware that it’s working its magic on me.

Key Ingredients:

  • Pure Australian Jojoba – antioxidant, rich in Vitamins A, D & E, hydrating
  • Cucumber – soothing
  • Green Tea – antioxidant, visibly reduces puffiness
  • Guava – age defying
  • Vitamins E & B – antioxidants
  • Horsetail Extract – stimulates collagen production
  • Pomegranate – promotes skin elasticity

It’s time you got on the wagon and tried out The Jojoba Company’s products. I’m testing a new serum from them that has convinced me even more that it’s a brand you want to have in your life.  —  Marcia

The Body Shop Drops of Youth Liquid Peel and Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Eye Cream-Gel

The Body Shop Drops of Youth Liquid Peel and Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Eye Cream-GelThe Body Shop is always a favorite line of mine not only because I love their products but also because I love their mission. They aren’t just here to make your skin better — they are here to make the world better too. The Body Shop was the first to engage in fair trade in beauty and they have had my heart since the 1980’s.                                                                                                           #TheBodyShopProvidedProduct

The Body Shop has two new skin care launches that are notable in their ingenuity. Of course, they are enhanced with products from The Body Shop’s Community Trade Program and the products are never tested on animals. They sent me these two new products, and for me one was a total miss and the other was a hit.The Body Shop Drops of Youth Liquid Peel

The NEW Drops of Youth™ Youth Liquid Peel ($25) is a gel exfoliator that peels off dead skin and excess oils. You smooth this on clean, dry skin, then massage it in for a few minutes. The gel lifts off all the crap that is clogging your skin, then you rinse it off for a smoother, less congested visage.  People definitely seem to like it –

Instantly feels like dead skin cells are lifted (88% agree*)
Peels off impurities and pollutants (88% agree*)
Skin feels cleansed from day’s pollution (86% agree*)
*when tested on 109 women

However, this didn’t work for me. It was fine up until the rinsing off stage. I could not get all the clumps of gel and dead skin to rinse off no matter what I did! I ended up using my Luna, rewashing my face, using makeup remover…I still have some remainders along my chin line. It’s just bizarre.  Maybe it’s my wonky skin and you will have a totally different experience, but this was a real bummer for me.

The Body Shop Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Eye Cream-GelI had a different experience with the Oils of Life™ NEW Intensely Revitalizing Eye Cream-Gel ($32). This is a gel eye treatment that has a light and airy texture. It’s really cool – you can see the tiny shimmers in it that also help brighten the eye area.   The Body Shop Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Eye Cream-GelThe Body Shop Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Eye Cream-Gel

Again, people seem to really like this product –

  • Eye life for your eyes
  • Eye contour looks smoother – 100%*
  • Radiance appears revived – 96% agree*
  • Dark circles appear faded – 90% agree*
  • Wrinkles appear smoother – 87% agree**
    *Results of Eye-Cream Gel self-assessments on the eye contour – 50 women
    ** Results of Eye-Cream Gel self-assessments on the eye contour – 100 women

And with this one, I agree! This eye gel/cream feels cool when applied and it calms down puffiness. It’s very hydrating so fine lines and wrinkles are plumped up and the tiny shimmers really lighten the eye area and counter any dark circles. Hooray, it’s a winner!!

You can find The Body Shop products at malls throughout the world as well as online.  – Lisa


MALIN+GOETZ revitalizing eye cream

MALIN+GOETZ revitalizing eye creamWhat could be better than hula girls and monkeys?  Hula girls, monkeys, and eye cream! Especially eye cream that works for those with sensitive skin. MALIN+GOETZ is a family owned lined that was designed specifically for those with very sensitive skin.  Matthew Malin, one of the owners, suffers from a whole slew of skin ailments – rosacea, eczema, seborrhea, fragrance allergies and dry skin. Along with Andrew Goetz, he created a skin care line that is great for every type of skin. Every product is free of detergents, colorants, and synthetic fragrances. MALIN+GOETZ is made in the US and never tests on animals.         sample

MALIN+GOETZ revitalizing eye creamThe MALIN+GOETZ revitalizing eye cream ($92) is my first foray into the line. I love the simple, mod packaging – what you see is what you get with this straightforward line.  The ingredients inside totally live up to the outside:

Firming Peptides help reduce the look of lines and wrinkles and firm eye area skin.
Marine Algae extract stimulates skin renewal, helping energize the look of eyes.
Grapeseed Oil—rich in antioxidants—and barrier-strengthening Sunflower Oil protect skin from free radicals and maintain skin’s inner moisture.
Fatty Acid Technology delivers lightweight yet intense hydration.
Sodium Hyaluronate and Panthenol boost moisturization to increase softness and suppleness.

MALIN+GOETZ revitalizing eye creamMALIN+GOETZ revitalizing eye cream

Mega hydration is essential for plumping up those fine under eye lines, but anything too moisturizing and I develop the dreaded milia…those bumps that never come to a head but look nasty. It’s not easy to find that perfect balance, but I found it in the MALIN+GOETZ revitalizing eye cream. The cream is light and absorbs quickly, plumping up fine lines and soothing puffiness. I’ve used this for almost a month and I am totally impressed.

If you are looking for a great eye cream – especially if you have sensitive skin – I wholeheartedly recommend the moisturizing and soothing revitalizing eye cream.  – Lisa

Ooooh so good!! Vie Collection Chrono Eyes and Mesopeptide Decollete Replenishing Cream

Vie CollectionI am a huge fan of Phytomer and use their skin care products all the time. I didn’t even realize that Phytomer had a special line called the Vie Collection…but what a wonderful opportunity to try some new skin care from a line I already know is excellent! I typically wait to use a product until after I have my photos, but something about these two items made me want to dig in immediately. Let me tell you, I wasn’t disappointed. You are going to love the Chrono Eyes and the Mesopeptide Decollete Replenishing Cream.                                                                  samples
Vie Collection Chrono EyesVie Collection Chrono Eyes swatchCHRONO EYES ($101) is a wonderful eye cream with an elegant formula that drew me in right away. It gives immediate gratification thanks to a pearlescent finish that instantly brightens the eye area. This isn’t just a one night stand eye cream though. Key ingredients include Encapsulated High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, Botox-like Peptide, Phytosterols + Fatty Acids, Vitamin C + Vitamin B3. This fabulous cocktail smooths wrinkles, calms puffiness, lightens dark circles, and makes skin look younger. It’s fragrance free and the best news of all – the packaging is an airless pump which means the ingredients won’t lose their efficacy. It’s truly a fabulous eye cream that is well worth the price tag.Vie Collection DecolleteVie Collection Decollete swatch
As much as I love this eye cream, I think I love the Vie Collection Mesopeptide Decollete Replenishing Cream ($120) even more! The first time I smoothed this on my neck I swear the world went into slow motion and I could hear the angels sing. I know, I know, at that price it should turn water into wine, but boy…if you can afford it, this is an amazing luxurious experience.
I cannot believe how soft and smooth my neck and decollete feel after applying this – and not just right after, but all day long. The lotion is creamy yet sort of gel-like at the same time. Like the Chrono Eyes, it has a pearlescent finish which reflect light and makes skin immediately look younger. The ingredients include Peptides, Encapsulated High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin C. Vie Collection Mesopeptide Decollete Replenishing Cream will make your neck and chest look and feel beautiful and younger.
I can’t recommend the Vie Collection Chrono Eyes and Mesopeptide Decollete Replenishing Cream highly enough!! I am so excited about both products and I know you will be too.  – Lisa

RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily MoisturizerLisa reminds us:  If you love retinol and you have dry skin you will love the RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer ($23). It has Broad Spectrum SPF 30 to protect skin from the harmful rays of the sun, and the packaging is perfect for keeping the ingredients effective.   RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily MoisturizerRetinol is an incredible ingredient for fighting fine lines and wrinkles. RoC says, “Retinol is the #1 dermatologist recommended cosmetic age-fighting ingredient. A derivative of Vitamin A, retinol works to unclog pores, boost collagen to reduce fine lines, and speed cell turnover to even out discolorations and smooth the skin.”RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily MoisturizerRoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer

RoC® scientists were the pioneers who developed the correct packaging that is needed to keep retinol stable and effective. Two of my most favorite retinol products are both their day cream and their night cream (Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream). The Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer is perfect for those with normal to dry skin. The cream is smooth and sinks in quickly, leaving a satin finish. This elegant lotion has a terrific texture that rivals day moisturizers that are ten times the cost.
