Skincare that works!

I also bought Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew - Anti-Puff Eye Roller which states that it decongests puffiness and diminishes dark circles.  See below.

So when I got back to the car I put on the Ultra Lift and seriously by the time I got to work the line was gone and hasn't returned.  Today I used the anti-puff eye roller.  It itches a little but it also seems to have worked.  I don't get puffy dark eyes often but occasionally if I haven't gotten enough sleep I definitely see some dark circles.  

So I am definitely adding these eye creams to my daily regiment.  However, I need to wear sunglasses more.  I know the lines around my eyes is from squinting in the sun - so I really need to find a great pair of sunglasses.  I have some but I really don't like how they look on me.  However, until I find a new great pair I am going to make sure I wear the ones I have - dorky sunglasses is way better than lines and wrinkles.

What skin products do you swear by?  What skin issues do you worry about?


  1. hmm never used garnier products!!! i'll have to stop by the store and try one out =)

  2. I tried the roller ball and didn't see results, I don't get puffy eyes, but I do have dark circles and some fine lines- still searching for a dark-circle treatment that works and won't cost me my first born child.
