I’m the kind of person that even if I partied a little too much, I still manage to wash my face and follow my nightly beauty regime.
Once upon a time ago, I drank a little too much, I threw up inside my friend’s car , all over myself ( I know not a pretty picture) ,and yet I still managed to come home and follow my night-time beauty routine. If that’s not dedication and hard work, I don’t know what is! And the funny part is, I don’t even remember being carried to my bed, I just remember waking up to a fresh face and soft lips. Oh, to be a teen again….kidding (I was 22).
The point of my story? Beauty does matter, there’s no excuse. Even if you’re intoxicated or go home with a guy, you should always remember to pack the essentials: moisturizer, face wash, mouth wash, and most importantly, eye cream!
I was 21 when my mom first recommended that I start using eye cream. She’s always said that one’s age can always be noticed around the eyes, neck, and hands. Five years later, I still get carded every time I try to watch an R rated film.
And since I am in such a good mood, I decided to share my top three eye creams:
L’OCCITANE’S Divine Eyes:
At first, I was a little hesitant to buy it because I thought the sales lady just wanted to sell me things I didn’t need. But before I walked out, she gave me a stack of samples to try at home. Naturally, I jumped at the chance and the next thing you know, I became addicted. I did notice improvement around my eyes so if you’re willing to shell out the $76 for cream, do it. You won’t be disappointed.
Lush’s Enchanted Eye Cream:
I actually got this as a present (til this day, I still wonder if it was meant as an insult but whatever). After using it for over a month, I noticed that my dark circles were fading away. Well, to be honest, lately, I’ve been all about giving myself a reasonable amount of sleep from 4-11. I would definitely recommend this lotion because it doesn’t involve harsh chemicals and it works. So if you’re all about natural products, this would be the one for you. $27
Avon’s Elements Moisture Boost Eye Cream:
I know most of you have a tia (that’s “aunt” for non-Spanish speakers) who sells Avon, so do yourself a favor and order ten of these. I was so shocked that this eye cream worked! This works wonders for those of you who have oily or combination skin (like me). It’s not too oily and I noticed results in about 2 weeks, no joke. And for the price, everyone should try it because it’s pretty affordable. This is definitely meant for those who want beauty on a budget. $9
