L’Oreal Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Eye Balm Review

Happy Sunday!  I’ve tried so many eye creams over the years. I’ve thought a few times that I found a holy grail one, but nope, not until now anyway.

Well I’m happy to report I think I may have found the perfect eye cream for mature skin.

It’s L’Oreal Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Eye Balm I purchased this at Ulta.  The regular price is $19.99, but I had a manufacturer’s coupon and store coupon, so I only paid $14.50 for .50 ounces of product.

Here is the description from Ulta’s website:

L’Oreal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition firming and hydrating eye cream glides smoothly onto skin for incredible comfort. 10 precious oils and pro-calcium blend to intensely re-densify skin around eyes, restoring a radiant glow.

I have a lot of wrinkles under my eyes. I’m 58, so that is to be expected. I wear glasses and blindly think (get it) that you can’t see my lines so well. Wrong! I have dark circles too and have to use a concealer.  Lately it seems like my lines have become pronounced.  I’ve had a rough year, so that may have contributed to my haggard eyes.

I was more than pleasantly surprised by this eye cream.  I’ve only been using it for a few days, but have noticed a big difference.  My under area is moisturized and a bit smoother.  One plus is my concealer looks the same at the end of the day as it does when I apply it in the morning.  That never happens.

Check me out.

 

I have minimal make up on, as I was just running out to the grocery store.

Ulta Haul 8-18-07

Happy Saturday!  Ulta is my favorite store.  Lately I’ve cut down on my spending, so I haven’t visited in a while.

I’m a Ulta rewards member so I got a 20% off your entire purchase coupon recently.  The coupon included everything in the store.  This only happens a few times a year, and it’s for rewards members only.

I needed a few things and had a bunch of coupons as well that were expiring soon.

I got $115 worth of stuff for $66!  Some people may think clipping coupons is for old folks. Well if that is the case, count me in!

Here is what I got:

Ulta haul 8-18-17

I got Garnier Micellar Water this stuff is flipping awesome!  I’ve been using this for several years.  It’s easy to use and really takes off all of your make up.  I paid $4.15 for each bottle.  The regular price is $8.99.

I love Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil in number 1.  I paid $19.22, regular price $24.  I usually stay away from higher end cosmetics, but this pencil works great for my skimpy brows.

Next up Burt’s Bees lip shimmer in Caramel.  Regular price $4.99, I paid $3.99.  This is a great balm to use under lipstick or just by itself. Plus it tastes like peppermint, so it freshens your breath.

L’Oreal Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Eye Balm This is a new product for me. It’s rated well on Ulta’s website. Regular price $19.99, I paid $13.59.

Tresemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner I had two buy one get one free coupons. I love this brand.  It’s so affordable and hey, how can you beat buy one get one free times two!

Last but not least, my new favorite mascara L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara OMG people, this is some of the best mascara I have ever used. Regular price $9.99, I paid $3.59 each!

So not only does it pay to clip coupons, but being a Ulta rewards member rocks!

Thanks for stopping by.

 

 

 

Olay Eyes Review

Happy Saturday!  Finding a good eye cream has always been a challenge for me. I have mature skin, (i.e. old) and have purchased so many eye creams over the years. I’ve tried prestige brands that didn’t really do anything. I hate spending a lot of money on something that ultimately doesn’t work.

I bought the Olay Eyes at Ulta awhile back.  I was using up a Philosophy eye cream that I started using in June.  Never really saw any results with that, but it was expensive, and I didn’t feel like taking it back.

I used the Olay Eyes for the first time last night.  When they say instant results, they were not kidding.  Here is what Ulta  has to say:

“Fight dark circles, wrinkles and puffy eyes in an instant with Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Perfecting Cream. This 3-in-1 Decircler, DeWrinkler & DePuffer instantly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Supercharged with peptides and vitamins, it renews skin¿s surface over time and reduces puffiness by massaging onto skin. Formulated with Olay’s color-correcting technology, it acts as a touch of concealer that matches all skin tones. The powerful formula hydrates to smooth and brighten the eye area. Give your eyes a boost of beauty and moisture with Ultimate Eye Cream for wrinkles, puffy eyes, and dark circles.”

One of my biggest eye issues besides under eye circles is wrinkled eyelids. I’m 57 and gravity has taken its toll on my eyelids. I had a Botox eyelift a few years ago, but it only last for three months and cost $600. I wear glasses, so that hides a lot.

I used the Olay Eyes for the first time last night. When I woke up this morning, my eyelid wrinkles were reduced.  I had to do a double take. I’ve never tried any eye cream that had instant results like this.  To say I was thrilled would be an understatement. It retails for $29.99 at Ulta. I had  coupons, so I paid $20 for a .4 ounce jar.  You use very little. I can’t wait to see the long-term results.

I give this a 10/10.
