One of the big things I used to write about on the old blog was my obsession with cosmetic and skin care products. I swore to myself that I wasn’t going to go down that road with this site (because it’s about my house, right?!), but I just can’t help myself. Anyone who knows me will not hesitate for a single second to tell you that the desire to talk about this stuff is just an essential part of who I am. Why deny that any longer? I give in!
And so, I present to you my current product obsession, DERMAdoctor Wrinkle Revenge Rescue & Protect Eye Balm.
I’m on my third jar of this stuff (and I’m one of those people who hardly ever uses anything up, and instead moves on to something else in hopes that it will be the product that changes my life), so I feel pretty confident in recommending it. I actually stopped using it for about 6 months because I didn’t feel like shelling out $70 for a new jar, but over the course of that time, the skin around my eyes got really craggy and crepe-y. I’m 32 (no, not OLD, but not YOUNG, either—I’m fighting wrinkles and pimples at the same time, which is just completely awesome, let me tell you) I finally broke down last weekend and shelled out the cash, and after using it morning and night since then, there’s already a noticeable improvement. I swear it’s not my imagination, either! Totally worth the cash, and to be honest, it’s a pretty big jar as far as eye creams go.
I have yet to find a fabulous undereye concealer, sadly. I’m presently using Clinique All About Eyes Concealer, and while it’s not awful, I definitely don’t love it. I think I’m running out of brands to try, though! Maybe I just need to wear more eyeliner, and the dark circles will just blend in and look intentional.
