I love testing new skincare! It’s so wonderful when I find something I like and continue to use. My skin is aging, sensitive and combination, but it gets dryer in the winter. So hydration is so important!
Below are some products I was sent for my honest review:
IMAGE Skincare ILUMA intense brightening exfoliating powder ($32 at IMAGESkincare.com): This gently exfoliating powder polishes and buffs away radiance-impairing dead skin cells to brighten and illuminate the skin, leaving it smooth and prepped to absorb creams.
What I think: Don’t forget to exfoliate a few times a week (whatever your skin can handle) during the winter. This is such a nice, gentle exfoliator. I like to use it in the morning before skincare to help my makeup apply better. It doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin, which is great.
Hydrating Night Cream ($29.99 dermae.com) — This ultra-hydrating, formula delivers unmatched hydrating properties of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), nature’s “moisture magnet”. Infused with antioxidant-rich Green Tea, nourishing Vitamins C-Ester and Vitamins A and E help to soften and smooth the appearance of skin for a younger-looking complexion.
What I think: This is such a great night time moisturizer for the winter months, when my skin is dry. I love that it has such amazing ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid to keep my skin soft and smooth. My skin is very hydrated in the morning when I use this at night.
KORRES Wild Rose Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial ($48; Sephora.com): Finish your nighttime routine with an overnight facial to be the ultimate sleeping beauty. This Wild Rose and Vitamin C formula melts instantly into the skin, and continues to work throughout the night. Wake up with soft, smooth skin, and a recharged complexion.
What I think: I usually apply this over serum, but on nights my skin really needs some extra love, I apply it over a night cream. It’s fairly light and absorbs quickly. I feel that it brightens as well as hydrates and my skin glows in the morning!
Derma E Hydrating Eye Cream ($21.50 USD) — Deeply hydrate, firm and tone the delicate skin around your eyes while reducing the look of fine lines and crow’s feet with this fragrance-free eye cream. Hyaluronic Acid (HA), also known as nature’s moisture magnet, has the ability to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, binding moisture to help soften, smooth, tone and rehydrate skin. Only DERMA E has blended the unmatched hydrating properties of HA with antioxidants Pycnogenol® and Green Tea, moisturizing Jojoba Oil and nourishing Vitamins A, C and E into a rich, replenishing eye cream to keep eyes young and radiant looking.
What I think: This is as hydrating for the eyes and the night cream is for the face! This is wonderful for anti-aging and we all need moisture in the eye area as we get older. Dryness makes me look older, and I don’t need that! I love the ingredients and how smooth my eye area looks in the morning.
IMAGE Skincare ILUMA intense brightening eye crème
IMAGE Skincare ILUMA intense brightening eye crème ($66; IMAGESkincare.com): A super-hydrating and brightening eye crème that works aggressively to break up discoloration under the eyes. A blend of phytonutrients, peptides and botanical brightening agents help to reduce visible signs of aging like dark circles, wrinkles, puffiness and lax skin to restore a firmer, vibrant and more youthful appearance to the eyes.
What I think: This lovely eye cream is so nice to use in the morning to help with dark eye circles. It really does make dark circles appear lighter and smooths and firms the eye area.
MISS BUD’S HEMP Eye Oil ($19.99 on Amazon): This under-eye oil transforms the delicate under-eye area to reduce fine lines, tone, smooth and deeply moisturize skin for beautiful, youthful looking eyes. Restore, replenish and hydrate skin via a blend of vitamin-rich Pure Hemp Seed, Wheat Germ, Coconut and Sunflower oils.
What I think: I like using this under an eye cream at night. Especially in the cold weather. It’s a really nice treatment when the eye area needs a little help. And I love the natural ingredients!
