Last week I shared 3 of the eye products that I’m using that knock it out of the ballpark and today I have 3 more that finish the job so I can win the game. Today’s picks are Endure Lash Organic Eyelash Cloths, Borghese Restorative Eye Sheet Mask and My Fair Lashes mascara. Two of the three are going to be new brands for you to learn about and that’s why I’m here!!
First I need to wear an eye mask which is one of my very favorite things to do. The Borghese Restorative Eye Sheet Masks are ones that are treats for my eyes. These are a brightening and hydrating treatment for the eyes. And they feel as good on as they sound.
These can be used any time of the day or evening but I love them before I apply makeup because they make my undereye area look well rested. Directions for use are so simple: Cleanse skin and pat dry. Remove the clear protective film, place the hydrogel eye mask under the eye and discard the white protective sheet. Relax and leave mask on for 5-15 minutes. Remove each mask and gently massage excess product into the skin. Use 1-2 times per week.
These hydrogel masks feel light as air, are completely comfortable, don’t slip down, and make me feel great. And the single packets are easy to pack up for a journey. The key ingredients show why these are a home run:
Now I’m going to apply mascara and I have a new one that I’ve been using: My Fair Lashes mascara from Velvet 59. This is totally unique in so many ways that we can appreciate.
Most important is that this is a vegan mascara. It took Velvet 59’s Paris Manning two years to perfect this mascara. All Velvet 59 products are cruelty free too.
My Fair Lashes is smudge proof, flake proof and quick-drying. It’s a deep black that is great for length and definition. The wand is very unique. It has a flat edge and a flat ball tip. (That’s an oxymoron if I ever heard one.)
Directions say to wipe off the excess product and then on your top lashes apply in zig-zag motions. When you get to your bottom lashes use the tip of the wand with the flat side closest to your face. This way you are apply it to get the most out of your bottom lashes and the inner corners. “The My Fair Lashes wand has a flat side which can be tipped and tilted to reach even the smallest, hardest to reach lashes.”
The first few days I used the mascara I wasn’t so sure if this was a good one for my eyes but now that I’ve been using it for several weeks I’m happy with it. I get a little volume from two coats while it makes my lashes appear longer and well defined. So far I haven’t had to use an eyelash comb either. It doesn’t smudge when I apply it on my bottom lashes (nor the top) which is rare for me. It’s the reason I barely use mascara there but My Fair Lashes changes that for me.
Days over and it’s time to wash up. That’s where ENDURE LASH ORGANIC EYELASH CLOTHS come into play. These cloths were originally made for eyelash extensions but I’ve never had extensions and I’m finding EndureLash to be wonderful for removal of mascara. All you need is warm water and the cloth!
There are 2 different cloths or you can buy the combo pack. The Eye Makeup Organic Drying Cloth in the combo pack is 8″x8″ and is made of 60% organic bamboo viscose, 30% organic cotton, and 10% spandex ponte. This is the one you want if you have extensions since it doesn’t budge them nor snag on them. You’ll get fewer lost lashes between fills.
I throw this in the laundry with my dark load so it saves me money on buying cotton pads and eye makeup remover.
The smaller cloth is the Organic Eye Makeup Removal Cloth and this works like magic for me. I use warm water, apply it to my eyes without rubbing and voila my mascara is gone. Really truly gone. I know it’s on the cloth but I don’t see it and there’s nothing that remains on my face. I’ve used this with 3 mascaras just to prove it works as great as I thought. The Eddie Funkhouser mascara coats lashes so you’ll see that on your face but it washes off with warm water too.
It comes with a mesh bag for storage and laundry. Put it in the bag and run it through with your washload. Now this doesn’t remove my shadows unless I use a very natural look so I do have to use eye makeup remover or a micellar water to do that. But the Organic Drying Cloth does get off my other eye makeup better. I can tell you right now that this mesh bag and removal cloth are coming on my next vacation.
I’ve rounded the bases with these three products and the ones from last week and my eyes are the ones that are winning. I’ve found some products that work great for me and that I’m sure will work as wonderfully for you. — Marcia
