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.

L’Oreal Brow Stylist Shape and Fill Brow pencil review

Happy Saturday! Can I just say I’m a coupon clipping kook! Not that’s a bad thing. I love new beauty products, and often find them in the Sunday paper coupons. It might only be a buck or two savings, but it’s a great way to try new products for not a lot of money.

Having coupons that expired today, I made my way to Ulta yesterday. I was trying to stay away, but I had to buy a birthday gift, and Ulta is next store to Charming Charlie  I had not been to Charming Charlie’s in awhile and was very pleasantly surprised. They had many more new and fun products. I almost purchased a book on how to tie a scarf. Lots of great gift ideas. Plus they carry e.l.f. products!

As you get older, your eyebrows get sparse. While I don’t pay a ton of attention to my brows, (i.e. rarely pluck, etc.), I do like them to look nice. Mine are blonde and I wear glasses.

I purchased L’Oreal Brow Stylist Shape & Fill in Blonde at Ulta.  The regular price is $10.99, I paid $4.24 using a manufacturer’s coupon, Ulta coupon and member rewards points. It is identical to Benefit Good Proof brow which costs $24 in my opinion.  The color I was using for the Goof Proof brow is number one.

Here is what’s on Ulta’s website:

Define your brow statement. L’Oreal’s Brow Stylist Shape and Fill Pencil is a unique 3-in-1 mechanical pencil with spoolie. The triangular tip precisely outlines, easily shades, and evenly fills brows. Soft styling spoolie blends for shaped brows.

Benefits:

  • 3-in-1 mechanical pencil with spoolie
  • Triangular tip
  • Outlines, shades, fills
  • Defined brows

 

The colors are the same, it’s hard to tell them apart.

They both have unique tips, which makes it easier to fill in your brows.

They both go on the same as well. I’ll be taking the Benefit Goof Proof back!

I don’t have a photo, as I tried the product on, but have no other eye make up on, and frankly I don’t want to scare anyone. (I’m super pale).

Thanks for stopping by.
