I have always had a difficult relationship with GlamGlow products. I see them, they look interesting and I hear fantastic things about them. then I try them and am usually left feeling like I missed something. Clearly this product couldn’t be what everyone else is talik ng about can it? Its not that I find the products bad. They are decent products. But from the reactions of everyone else I always feel as though they got the super amped up version while I picked up the average one. I think this is why I keep going back to try more products from them.
This time around it is an eye cream. I believe I picked up this tiny little jar of GlamGlow Bright Eyes as an IPSY add on. As small as it is, the little jar was packed absolutely full of product. Since so little product actually needs to be applied, that tiny little jar will last a really long time.
What is GlamGlow Bright eyes?
An illuminating eye cream that instantly brightens dark circles and reduces the visible signs of fatigue around the entire eye area for a super well-rested, glowing look.
The description was not too over the top in terms of claims which I like. In fact it has mostly the same claims that any decent eye cream should have (otherwise what’s the point of applying the eye cream?).
The full 0.5 fl.oz. / 15ml size retails for $39. The size I received is 0.1 oz/3 ml, if you would like the comparison. I’ve been using this product for two weeks (and yes this is the level of the product in the jar after two weeks of consistent use). I will be shocked if the 3 ml sized product lasts less than a full three months. So little product is actually needed to put on your eyes that I can see a full sized jar lasting five to six months easily.
To apply I rubbed my clean finger along the top surface of the product. This small size is really good for that application actually. I didn’t have to dig into the product with nails or a spoon or anything, just along the top to gather product. The amount on my finger in the hoto is what was gathered for each eye using this method. So double the amount shown with each use (because I have two eyes – I know, rocket science).
There is no scent to this product other than a light scent of cream product. So you will be spared my nose’s deliberations on the eye cream. The only issue I had during the use of this product was that because the jar was so small I had to make certain my hands were completely dry before attempting to open it because it was hard to get a purchase on it with damp skin.
As i said before, GlamGlow products and I have a difficult past. Some of the products I’ve tried I’ve disliked, but not hated, like the cleanser which left my skin feeling nice, but took forever to actually get rinsed off the skin, and some I liked but didn’t feel they were worth the price (various masks for the most part). I have to say, I liked this eye cream and I think it is actually worth the price. It may actually be my favorite GlamGlow product that I’ve tried.
It went on well with a little bit of product needed. I know it says immediate results and I did use the product for two weeks, but very few skin care products work instantaneously (and quite frankly I don’t really trust the ones that do). Generally speaking you need thirty days worth of testing on your skin to begin to see results. I can see that this is going in a positive direction though. My skin is hydrated and the fineles not as noticeable, although i don’t think they’ve actually shrunk. Most importantly it did not clog my pores while hydrating the under eye area.
While I generally consider Glam Glow to be a kind of middle of the road brand with their products falling into my personal ranking of just okay, this is a product that actually shined. Not only will I happily continue using this eye cream, but I would consider purchasing a full sized jar.

For the last six or eight months I have heard people raving about Tula Skincare’s products. Everyone seems to love them. I received a sample of a Tula Cleanser (I believe it was in an IPSY Box) a while back and as everyone was raving about it I was super excited to try it.
I hated it.
And not just in an ‘I don’t think this cleanser is right for my skin type’ kind of way. It was intensely perfumed and did not leave my skin feeling clean. It was a hard pass for me.
And to be honest, I don’t like giving a lot of negative reviews. Most of the time the products I try are good products. If they don’t work for me I can usually see that they are either designed for a different skin type or to combat a problem i don’t have. I’ve also learned to pay more attention to ingredients lists and can avoid some products that I know are going to give me issues. After all why put my skin through the trauma I know would be coming, when I can just pass a product unopened to someone who will enjoy using it.
When the Tula Skin Care Glow and Get It Calming and Brightening Eye Balm arrived in a subscription box I was on the fence about it. The only product I’d tried from Tula was the cleanser, but that didn’t mean I would hate the entire brand. There are many brands where I love some products and don’t like others. In fact most brands are like that. There are very few brands where every product is a hit for me. Admittedly, I get very excited when those brands do come up with something new, but that is another topic.
And I do love a good eye cream. The older I get, the more I find myself loving eye creams. Between the general aging process and my frequent bouts of insomnia, it is now a very important tool.
So I looked up what to expect from the product and decided to give it a try while keeping an open mind. According to the product page…
The game-changing, hyaluronic acid eye balm that started it all. Provides a lit-from-within glow while hydrating, cooling plus helping to reduce the look of fine lines & wrinkles around the eyes.

I have recently found from my trials with Timeless skincare that I really like Hyaluronic acid. I am beginning to think my forehead stress crack wrinkle has started absorbing all of it like some sort of Acid-aholic. So the fact that it was in this eye balm was encouraging. So I set my current eye cream to the side and began trying this out.
I like that it is in a stick format. Maybe it is because I like both Milk and Trestique products. However, the format made it easy and quick to apply. One swoop and the product was on my face. But you know me. The first thing I did when opening it and taking off the plastic protector cap was to sniff it. As I had many issues with the scent of the last Tula product I was hesitant.
This does not smell like perfume.
It does smell kind of like you put almond oil in an all natural kitchen cleaning spray. There is something antiseptic almost about the smell. It isn’t sweet, but nutty in an almond kind of way and antiseptic. It isn’t my favorite scent but the scent does fade.
So to the swoop around the eyes. On first application, it is silvery blue, and looks a bit like a cream highlighter. As you can see it better on my hand, I took the pictures there so it is more evident and there are fewer facial shadows. Clearly I wasn’t going around with this ringing around my eyes so I rubbed it in. And then it just looked greasy. I thought it might absorb, but it didn’t. Since I put the eye balm under makeup I didn’t worry too much, figuring powder would soon cover it up if nothing else.
But something interesting happened. If you read the description, you see that it is supposed to have a cooling effect. And it did. I felt a cooling sensation under my eyes and I did feel more awake because of it. As I often use a refrigerated stone roller under my eyes when I am tired in the afternoons, it isn’t surprising. So I put powder over the greasy looking spots and went about my day.
The powder stuck to the spots where the eye balm was placed like cotton batting velcro. It wasn’t going anywhere and as a consequence, the under eye area did look brighter.
However with each application, the cooling sensation faded so that by the fifth day of use there was no noticeable cooling effect from the eye balm. So that benefit was gone. I don’t know if my skin just got used to it and stopped reacting or what, but it was no longer there, and I kind of missed it.
Now those of you who frequently read my posts you know that under my eyes I am prone to getting clogged pores. They are often the bane of my skincare. The masks weren’t helping, but I found some masks that were cut just slightly lower so they land slightly below my trouble spots but still protect my mouth and nose. with that and my current skin care regimen, my clogged pores have been greatly reduced.
After about a week of using this product, they began to multiply again. I tried varying placement of the product but given the size of the stick and the amount it had to be rubbed in to make it no ,onger look like highlighter, avoiding the area completely was impossible. I started applying it with a cotton swab (as in rubbing the cotton swab on the stick and then applying the swab to my skin. It sort of defeated the purpose of the stick, but it let me avoid the problem areas.
The issue is that there weren’t really any benefits. The cooling sensation faded, my skin felt greasy, my pores were clogged and I really didn’t see a difference in the fine lines around my eyes. Put quite simply, I’ve had way better results with other products that didn’t cause me issues.
Now I’m not saying the entire brand is bad, mostly because I haven’t tried the entire brand and can’t judge a product until I try it. But I can honestly say that this product is not for me. I like the idea of it, but it just didn’t work. I won’t be buying this again and I won’t be picking it up to add to any skin care themed family member’s baskets for my upcoming christmas and birthday gift buying extravaganza either.
Recently I ended up with two Algenist products in my testing line up, both from different sources, but both part of the Algernist Genius line. The first was the Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-aging eye cream (retail $74, although I got it on sale.). The reason I ended up purchasing it was a friendly recommendation given to me by a stranger when I was out shopping for eye cream. I was having trouble deciding on a product and the helpful stranger suggested this one. I took the recommendation and after a trip to the cashier I took it home.
The second product came to me via Scentbird and no, it isn’t a perfume. Scentbird also offers various skincare and makeup items that you can add to your queue in lieu of a perfume that month. In March, I decided to forgo my monthly perfume trial and try the option and from their line up I chose the Algenist Genius Liquid Collagen lip to try out. It looked interesting and we all know I am totally down for anything designed to make my lipstick look better. So I received this product instead of perfume from Scentbird this month. I didn’t review the Scentbird subscription box right away as I wanted to have time to try the products.
So with two separate products from the same line ready for testing, I decided I needed to find out what made them genius.
Or at least why they thought of themselves as such.
So to the product page my darlings!
As far as I can tell it is called the genius line because it is born from biotechnology using super fantastic algae and is safe and clean, hypoallergenic and formulated for all skin types. It is also free of a whole bunch of not so good for you things including coal tar, mineral oil and petroleums. There is actually a long list of what they don’t use, which made me quite happy to see. As far as I can tell though those guidelines apply to all of their products and not just the genius line.
So we look at the products. Unfortunately, all things are not equal. I liked the eye cream and did not like the lip treatment. Let’s go with the best first though and start with the eye cream.
According to its product page, the Algenist Ultimate Anti-Aging Eye cream…
This vegan eye cream delivers unparalleled benefits through a combination of naturally sourced and sustainably produced Alguronic Acid and Microalgae Oil. Alguronic Acid helps increase skin’s smoothness, and Microalgae Oil works to replenish the eye contour moisture while improving the skin’s luminosity. The formula also includes a plant-based collagen and a Persian silk tree extract to visibly firm and lift the upper eyelid, nourish and smooth skin around the delicate eye area.
I have to say, I am a big fan of this eye cream. It is a plain, white cream with almost no scent other then ‘I’m a cream’ scent. It is thicker than I expected and I worried that it might clog my pores as some of the thicker eye creams have been known to do. However, it did not. I’ve been using this product for a month now and I have had no problems with clogged pores. The eye cream does make the skin feel super soft and hydrated. I think this is partially because of the shea butter included rather high up on the ingredients list. I like that it is thick enough that I can put it on my eyelids as directed without worrying about it traveling down and stinging my eyes.
There was no eye stinging with this product.
Where this product really shines though, is during allergy season. As the pollen count rises, the puffiness of my under eyes increases. The trees began their annual pollen parade shortly before I started using this eye cream and they were a bit on the puffy side when I started. I noticed a reduction in the puffiness after a few days of use even though the pollen count was steadily on the rise.
My only issue with this product is that it is in a small jar and it is a thick cream. I know I also like that it is a thick cream, but here’s the deal. It is thick enough that if you rub your finger across the top to collect some product to use, you get only a little on your finger as it just presses down. You have to sort of scoop a little bit up with your nail.in order to use it. Personally I don’t like sticking my fingers into face creams for fear of accidentally contaminating the entire thing.
I ended up putting one of the scoops from an old mask to use with this product as I was getting product under my nails with it and it was going to waste. This is not a product I want to waste. Also it is a small jar and my little plastic scoop was a little too big for it so I had to be careful not to scoop out too much. A tiny little scoop/spoon included with this product would make it just about perfect.
On the other hand, the Liquid Collagen lip is far from perfect. First, let’s see what it is supposed to do.
A vegan lip treatment to help deliver fuller, smoother-looking lips in 10 days*. This unique dual phase lip treatment suspends botanical lip enhancers and hundreds of beads of Microalgae Oil in collagen water. The unique formula visibly smooth lips and improve lip definition for a more youthful appearance. Formulated with plant collagen, and Algenist’s naturally sourced and sustainably produced Alguronic Acid. Apply with soothing and cooling ceramic tip applicator.
Okay, the packaging is nice and really well thought out. The plastic applicator is shaped perfectly and when you twist the top to dispense the product, the absolute perfect amount of product comes out. Seriously it is just enough to coat the lips and no more. The packaging is perfectly well thought out.
And it looks pretty.
It is comprised of golden drops of oil suspended in a gel. You hold it up to the light and it almost glows.
But as we all know, looks aren’t everything.
So I applied the product to my lips. It has no scent and it glides on like a lip gloss. As it was on my lips, I did taste the product. It is a very bizarre taste. I am going to describe this to the best of my ability, but I am not sure how good that is. So, the taste.
Okay imagine you go to the dentist and have a lot of Novocain as they are working on your mouth. They finish, wipe off your lips and send you home. Eventually the drugs wear off and you can take out the pads they shoved in your mouth to make you look like a chipmunk (and not bite your cheek without realizing it). Now think of the first time you lick your lips after that. You know that post Novocain taste your lips have? The slight non-taste that is still a taste?
That’s what this tastes like.
And yes I had to think about that for a while and it is still the best description I could come up with. Now you know why I don’t write poetry.
Okay so moving past the taste. At first, my lips just felt wet. After a couple of minutes it started to absorb and my lips felt warm. Really warm. Not run for the wash cloth warm, more like you put a few too many sliced jalapenos in your sandwich warm.
And yes, I put jalapenos in my grilled cheese. They are yummy.
The warmth died down faster than jalapeno juice though, so I was relieved. Also about the time my lips stopped feeling hot, when I touched them they felt dry to the touch even though I still thought they were wet. I will say they looked a little smoother and I was able to easily apply lipstick over them. I used a lipstick that was almost at the end of its life in case it contaminated it, but I still applied lipstick over it with no problems. In fact it looked really good.
I know you’re thinking, Mimsy, you said you didn’t like it, what’s the deal?
Okay here’s the deal. The one time use was fine. It worked exactly as it was supposed to. But it is a product that is supposed to work over time. According to the application directions you are supposed to apply it once in the am and once in the pm and you should see results in ten days. That is the recommended usage.
So I used as directed.
I applied it both am and pm. The heat I felt that first day did not occur with repeat applications. I don’t know if my lips adjusted or what, but there was no further heat. There was chapping. By day three the corners of my lips were red and raw and I had to discontinue use. If I realized it was the lip product causing the chapping I would have discontinued use earlier. I thought it was just the wind so I applied more Chapstick.
It was not the wind and I apologize for blaming it. I also apologize for telling the Chapstick it was not doing its job. It was, I was just torpedoing it without realizing it. Please don’t hold it against me dear Chapstick, as I will need you in both the upcoming summer sun and the cold winter to follow. I’m sorry I was so rude.
So there you have it. It’s a Genius family where one child seems to have sucked all the brains out of the other one. The liquid collagen is still pretty and perhaps I had some sort of reaction to one of the ingredients (a case I will be investigating), and someone else would have better luck with it than me. I can however say, it is definitely not a repurchase for me. I might try using it again on a one time basis if I need to look good going out (although heaven only knows when I will next leave my house). But I will not use it routinely and I won’t repurchase.
The Ultimate Anti-aging eye cream however is fantastic and definitely something I will be repurchasing. For now I am less than halfway through the jar and still have at least one other eye cream in the line up to test. But it still goes on the list.
I also am going to sit down with as complete an ingredients list as I can to see if I just had an allergic reaction and if I did, what I had the reaction to. I find this very important as I saw many crossovers from the eye cream and lip treatment when I looked through them. I find this important generally because I like to know if I am allergic to something, but also because I had so much success with the eye cream that I want to try out other cream products in this line to see if they are comparable. To be honest, after I make my comparison ingredients list, this may be a case where I get samples of other products in the line to try before committing to a full sized version, just in case. every product line has some flaws and I’m hoping that for me the lip treatment was it. So not only will I be repurchasing the eye cream but I will more than likely be trying out more products from the Genius line and hoping it is a family of virtuosos, with just one errant child.
Both of my QMS Medicosmetics products came to me via Boxy Charm, albeit in two separate months. The Intensive Eye Care Day and Night Cream (retail $140) came in November and the Lip Line Corrector Lip Serum (retail $200) came in the December BoxyCharm. Because I knew the lip serum was coming, I put the eye cream to the side until it arrived so I could test both of them at the same time.
Prior to their arrival I had never tried anything from the brand. It is apparently a British Brand that is branching out into the US Market from what I’ve gathered.
I have to say that given the price point of the products, the packaging wasn’t what I expected. Both come in plastic containers. While the eye cream is in a pretty blue color with a silver lid and feels quite sturdy, the lip serum container feels a little thin. Admittedly that may simply be the top dispenser. It is a twist up dispenser that you pump the serum from.
While I like that it keeps the product away from the air, don’t actually like the pump. There is no adjusting the pump to dispense smaller amounts of product. You can’t pump it halfway down, it is one pump and that is it. For me this was a problem as I only need about half of the product that came out of the pump each time I used it. I ended up using the excess serum on my neck but I still felt as though I was wasting it by dispensing more than I needed.
But as we all know, packaging is one thing, product is another. Since I’ve already started with the lip line corrector, I’ll continue and then move on to the eye cream. So on the QMS website the product is described as:
Formulated exclusively for the upper lip area, Lip Line Corrector targets fine line and wrinkles. This high-performance lightweight serum is specifically designed to hydrate and plump lips for a smoother, youthful appearance.
I will say that the serum is very light weight. It is a very liquid formula and it takes a while to absorb into the skin. I found myself adjusting my skin care routine to apply it as early as possible to give it time to absorb before moving on. Truth be told in the three weeks I used the product, I didn’t see any real difference in the lip area.
I will however say that I did see significant improvement on the skin of my neck and décolletage where I applied the excess serum. There it smoothed and plumped skin and I saw a noticeable difference. Which I have to say that as I only put it on my neck because the pump dispensed too much serum for my lip and I didn’t want to just wash it down the drain, I find darkly humorous.
While I will continue to use this on my neck and upper chest, I probably won’t use it on my lip any more. I have not tried a product specifically designed for my lip area before, but prior to this I used eye cream on my lip area and that has worked much better. So I think moving forward I will not be purchasing a separate lip serum, but returning to use what I know works. I would be up for trying a different brand should one come my way but once this product is gone I will not be repurchasing it.
The eye cream was an interesting product. According to the website:
With its multi-action formulation featuring natural firming extracts and intensely moisturizing ingredients, Intensive Eye Care provides targeted treatment to the delicate skin of the eye zone. Its rich, nurturing texture is both gentle and highly effective in helping to reduce fine lines, dark lines and puffiness.
It came in a regular jar with no pump and where the lip serum was thin and fluid, the eye cream was thick, very thick. A very little dab was all that was needed to cover my under eye and the fine lines in the ‘crows foot’ area. Even with using very little product, this cream needed a bit of massaging to get it to absorb into the skin. Its thick nature made it want to sit on top of the skin. It has a very old fashioned cold cream sort of texture (and scent actually).
I’m not certain if it is the scent or the texture of the cream, but I could see it more as a night cream than a day cream. Unfortunately for me, it made my skin break out so I had to discontinue use. I ended up with a sort of crescent shaped section of skin around the orbital bone breaking out in a very distinct row of pimples. As it was in exactly the spot where I put the cream, I figured it was the culprit. The suspicion was confirmed when I stopped using it and the break outs went away.
It did actually work well on the fine lines around my eyes before it broke me out and it was excellent at reducing puffiness which is among its claims. The fact that it was actually an effective product made the break outs more annoying. I don’t know if it was clogged pores or an allergy, but unfortunately this is not the eye cream for me.
Unfortunately for me neither QMS products will be making it into my must have’s list. Perhaps because of the price point, I expected more. As I have used many less expensive products that worked much better, I was quite disappointed. The lip line corrector makes a wonderful serum for the neck and chest, but did nothing for the fine lines around my lips and the eye cream gave me two lines of crescent shaped breakouts. Clearly, this is not the brand for me.
This month I have been using two products from Juice Beauty and as they are both from the same product line (Stem Cellular Anti-wrinkle) I thought I would not only use them together, but review them together. The two products I have been using are the Stem Cellular Anti-wrinkle Booster Serum and the Stem Cellular Anti-wrinkle Eye Treatment. As those are both really long names I will probably just call one Serum and the other Eye cream throughout this post.
My trial of both of these products ran twenty-two days instead of my standard two week trial. At the start of the trial the Serum weighed in at 4.47 ounces. The package contains 1 ounce of product so 3.47 ounces of that is packaging. The eye cream which has 0.5 ounces of product weighed in at 1.82 ounces with a package weight of 1.32 ounces.
The packaging is interesting. The containers do well in keeping the product from the light and air which I really like as it lessens the chance that they will spoil before I can use them up. I don’t like the fact that you can’t tell how much product is left in the containers though. Once I start getting low on a product, especially when it is skin care related, I like to make sure I have a replacement ready to go. I’m not entirely sure how you would fix that though. The same feature that I like for the fact that it keeps out the air and light is also what keeps me from seeing how much is left. It’s just sort of shrug it off and do the math for estimates sort of situation.
When I got the serum I was worried about the relatively small nozzle getting clogged. I have to say that has not been an issue at all. It has worked perfectly. With the eye cream I was intrigued by the applicator. I like the pump to release the cream and I like that I can apply it with the applicator, but the plastic is simply too hard for use on the skin under my eyes. It works great on the fine lines on the side of my eyes, I just don’t like it on the under eye area. Otherwise it too is a nice feature. It dispenses just enough product so there is little waste and remained operational without jamming or having other malfunctions. Overall I am happy with the packaging and I liked not having to dip my fingers into the jar of eye cream.
At the end of my trial I weighed the products again to see how much remained. In this case it was actually a necessity as I had no idea how much product was left in the jar and could do no estimations based on sight. At the end of the trial the serum container weighed 3.5 ounces. Given that the packaging weighed 3.47 ounces only 0.03 ounces of product remain in the container. This isn’t much of a surprise as this morning when I went to apply it, the product squirted out in a not so steady stream, sputtering as it went from bottle to hand. I am pretty sure it will soon be empty. As yesterday was day twenty-two and I’m pretty sure I will have enough for tonight but not much past, I will say this product lasts about twenty-three days for me. So a little less than a month. With an $80 retail price tag that makes it $3.47 per day.
I also weighed the eye cream in at the end of the trial and it now weighs 1.5 ounces. Subtracting the package weight of 1.32 ounces and there is 0.18 ounces left of the eye cream. Given the math, I have about twelve days left of use in this product so it should last about 34 days in total. As it has a retail price of $50, that ends up being about $1.47 per day for this eye cream.
But it is not all about packaging, volume, duration and pricing. The most important part is the product itself. After all a product is only worth it if it lives up to it’s claims. So first the Serum.
Reduce the appearance of wrinkles with this ultra-light gel serum. Power packed with an optimum dose of our proprietary blend of fruit stem cells infused into a Vitamin C, resveratrol-rich grapeseed formula to help boost and enhance skin tone and texture. Juice Beauty’s STEM CELLULAR™ Anti-Wrinkle Booster Serum is ideal for all skin types and especially beneficial for skin showing the signs of aging.
Formulated to maximize the performance of the STEM CELLULAR™ Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizers by preparing the skin to absorb rich antioxidants. A proprietary blend of fruit stem cells and Vitamin C infused into organic resveratrol-rich juices can improve the appearance of skin tone and luminosity. Hydrates and moisturizes skin with organic antioxidant-rich jojoba and shea. Provides essential fatty acid emollients and powerful antioxidant action with evening primrose, linseed & borage seed. Plant-derived hyaluronic acid provides plumping moisture to skin.
I will say it is an ultra-light gel consistency. While I don’t mind that, it does take a little while for it to absorb into the skin. I generally found that I had to apply it and then postpone the rest of my morning routine while I went to make coffee and do a couple of other things. While I know you are supposed to let serums sink in before putting moisturizer on over them, this one did seem to take an extra little while to settle. It isn’t a deal breaker but it is something to watch if you are trying to get out of the house in a hurry in the morning.
I like that it has vitamin C in it as my skin usually reacts well to it and I appreciate that it is cruelty free and free of a whole slate of things I don’t really like. I wouldn’t say it made my skin luminous but it did make my skin feel soft and smooth. It is a good serum and if it came my way, I would use it again, however I will not actively seek it out. There are a couple of products that I sort of stalk and as soon as they are offered on sale, I pounce like a bargain seeking Ninja. This is not one of them. I like it, but it is not in my top tier of products. Perhaps I would feel better about it if I hadn’t just used a really good serum, but I still found it to be just okay. I will use it until it is gone though (which will probably be tomorrow morning).
A proprietary blend of fruit stem cells and Vitamin C infused into certified organic, antioxidant-rich botanical juices works to reduce the appearance of fine lines around the eyes and minimize the appearance of dark circles. Juice Beauty’s STEM CELLULAR™ Anti-Wrinkle Eye Treatment is designed for all skin types and especially beneficial for skin showing the signs of aging. It delivers rich hydration around the eye area with organic antioxidant-rich jojoba and shea. Visibly reduces the appearance of under eye dark circles with organic essential fatty acids of evening primrose, borage & linseed. Delivers nutrients and vitamins around the eye area with Vitamins C, E & B5.
It too is cruelty free and without a bunch of ingredients I don’t like. And I am starting to get those fine lines around my eyes. While dark circles aren’t really one of my problems, I have to say I did like this eye cream. While it didn’t erase the lines (which I think is an impossibility and not something I should expect) the formula of the cream worked well with my skin. It sunk in quickly and made my skin feel soft and hydrated. Even though it has a very similar product list to the serum, it is a ream rather than a gel consistency and I think that might be why I had less of an issue with absorption.
While I have no way to test whether I absorbed vitamins with the cream, I did enjoy using it and will finish the bottle. I may have to set it to the side while I run a trial on the QMS eye cream but I will return and use the remaining product. In addition I think I will put this on my ‘to stalk’ list as it is one of the better eye creams I have come across lately. I would not only use it again if I came across it, I would actually go out and purchase it. And truth be told, I might not actually wait for a sale to do so. It gets two thumbs up and a claim that it is in fact worth the price.
So there you have it. My take on two products from Juice Beauty. Both are good, but only one would I actively try to re purchase.
