A few weeks back influenster sent me a collection of products to try for 30-days with the promise of fewer dark circles under my eyes, more volume under my eyes (less hollows and shadows) more fullness in my skin, fewer wrinkles and help recovering my skin’s fullness while sleeping resulting in fewer lines and wrinkles.
Here are my thoughts on the 4-products which I received from Influenster and L’Oreal.
1. Eye Treatment– This product has Hyaluronic Acid which helps plump up the areas under the eye and improve volume of the under-eye hollows which start to happen as we age. It also helps with the dark circles and fine lines. I have seen a slight change in the amount of darkness under my eyes, which is a battle that I struggle with. Part of this problem, is due to chronic sinus infections an a toddler who loves to stay up late. I didn’t expect magic, but I was pleasantly surprised to see some noticeable lightening of the dark circles! The gel goes on smoothly and absorbs quickly with no greasy residue.
2. Concentrated Serum- This product is the magical serum which targets the sagginess around my cheeks and jowls. Because you know we all get those! A couple of drops on my cheeks and eye bone area and I am on to the next step. This also has that fancy Hyaluronic Acid which helps improve tone and volume! It’s some sort of potion from the depths of the earth! My skin is smoother, softer and I don’t know if it’s fuller, but it feels nicer! So that’s always a plus!
3. Day Cream– The Day cream is a nice, thick moisturizer that goes on like silk and absorbs quickly with no greasy residue. It wears nicely under makeup and keeps my skin hydrated and my makeup doesn’t run off while wearing it. The areas around my mouth look fuller and smoother since I’ve been using this moisturizer.
4. Night Cream– I don’t know if I would call this a cream, it’s more of a silky, slippery, lavender gel. It goes on smoothly, absorbs quickly and leaves a tingle…It kind of reminds me of the lip plumping lipsticks that were popular a couple of years ago. I always liked those! This cream is soft on my face and feels smooth. My face is well-hydrated and doesn’t feel dry when I use it.
Again, I’ve seen a slight, but noticeable difference in the texture, evenness and overall quality of my skin since using these products for the 4-weeks since influenster sent them to me! I would continue to buy them if over the next 4-weeks I continue to see more of a change in the under-eye circles and hollowness beneath my eyes.
Just for fun, a before and after picture!
