Dark Circle & Puffy Eye Treatment Review

*Elite Serum

I created a post a while back about a product called Elite Serum.  This product has been raved about by its many faithful customers and even Doctor Oz,  The company that distributes the product guarantees that you will see rapid changes in your puffy eyes, dark circles and fine lines.  It is promoted as a product that works like botox and it even has similar ingredients in the serum.

I ordered 3 tubes of Elite Serum, two of which came from a discounted deal on groupon.  Personally I did not see a difference in my dark circles or puffy eyes.  The products consistency was nice and silky but it tightens on your eyes and leaves a peeling white film.  

*Yes to Grapefruit Dark Circle Corrrecting Eye Cream

I’m in love with the “Yes to” products which are made from all natural ingredients.  However, I did not see a significant difference in my dark circles after 4 weeks of use.  The eye cream is extremely hydrating and it feels like a mini massage for your eyes.  If I wanted something for moisture I would definitely repurchase this again. I will say that the “Yes to Grapefruit” face products have made a huge diffrenece in radiance and clarity but I am not a fan on the eye cream.  In case anyone is wondering I began use of the face products and eye cream at the same time.   I’m partly to blame for this mediocre review but I’m impatient and I want results now like any other girl.

Products Currently in Rotation 

*Roc Retinol Eye Cream 

This eye cream is on the greasy side compared to other products I have used.  I have been using it for 3 weeks inconsistently, (smdc) shaking my dark circles :( I have noticed a small difference with the puffiness of my eyes but my dark circles haven’t improved yet.  The jury is still out on this one.

*Whipped Goods Nighttime Eye Cream

I’m in heaven!  Thus far I haven’t seen any improvement in puffy eyes but my under eye area has never been this bright.  Usually I wake up looking like Monday morning.  It’s only been 2 days and I’ve woken up with radiant eyes.  This product is all natural, it smells great and the presentation gets 5 stars!  I can’t wait to see this product reach its full potential after consistent everyday use.

Treatments vs Temporary Fixes

I’m really loving serums right now and products that treat “problem areas” rather than disguise them.

For puffy under eyes and dark circles I use elite serum

For my eyebrows and eyelashes I’ve just recently started using ardell lash and brow serum which is supposed to strengthen and thicken. I have big daddy long leg eyelashes but over time mascara has thinned them out.

I’m a St Ives freak thanks to my sisters and I use their facial and body wash products. They have a sea salt body wash that exfoliates your skin but it also dehydrates it (I noticed this after using it once). If you have an exfoliating body wash just add 2 tablespoons of almond oil to the product and shake it up. Oil cures everything :p

Quick beauty tip. So I went on a beauty product binge today and bought some more lipgloss. If you’re worried that your lipgloss may be a little too thick or appear pasty you can add oil to make it a little more transparent. I use almond oil but almost any oil will work. For lipstick apply oil or lip balm to your lips first. If you’re a gloss girl just add two drops to your lipgloss and stir and you have the perfect consistency for your lips.
