First I wanted to tell you that I got one of those battery operated facial cleansing brushes(similar to a Clarisonic). I read that its good to exfoliate your skin. So, newer, fresher skin underneath shows and encourages your skin cells to turn over more frequently. Thus, causing better, fresher, smoother skin to grow underneath.
So, I was thinking, if I used a cleansing brush, it would help exfoliate the dead skin off, showing newer, fresher, smoother and hopefully tighter skin to show underneath. Well, it does help to clean your pores better. And it does help to exfoliate the dead skin off.
My skin is really soft & smooth after I use it. So, the texture is a little better & brighter. But, so far I haven't noticed any difference with my problem areas.(again, the lines & wrinkles, bags & puffiness, fat pads or dark circles). Although, I don't go real close to my eyes with that. They say to be as gentle as possible with the skin under your eyes, since your skin is really thin & delicate there. So, I don't use it on that area. That's why I haven't gotten any results there.
The next set of products I tried where Clinique anti-aging products. I figured Clinique is a reputable brand and have been around quite a while. So, their products should be pretty good, right??? Well ..... we'll see .....
I went to Sephora to get a free sample of Clinique's All About Eyes since the regular size is pretty expensive. When I got there and got the sample of All About Eyes, the lady told me that the Repairware is really good, too. So, she gave me a sample of that. I really like their samples there because they put them in a small re-closable container. And they put enough in so you can use it several times. The samples I got lasted me well over a week.
I used the All About Eyes around my eyes and the Repairware on the rest of my face. I liked the creamy, silky texture of both and both were very moisturizing. After the sample ran out, I wasn't sure if I was seeing any difference or not. So, I went online to see if I could find a cheaper price for both. I did find it cheaper on Amazon, so I bought both.
They both lasted me a little over a month, using sparingly to make it last as long as I could. After finishing both, my skin seemed a little smoother(although that might have had something to do with using the cleansing brush too). The lines and wrinkles around my eye seemed like they may have been the tiniest bit diminished. But, not very much.
I think these product might be more for using before you get lines & wrinkles to help prevent you from every getting them. But, once you have them, its really, really hard to find something to diminish them.
I figured since I did see a tiny difference with the Clinique line that maybe I would try something else in that line. So, I bought & tried a regular size of Clinique Turnaround Overnight cream and the Repairware Lazer Focus serum. And I used the full product which lasted me a little over a month. But, sadly, I didn't notice any other difference with those.
Below are sample pictures of what the product look like that I just told you about above, in order..
You'll want to stay tuned because I'll be getting into some products that I finally seen some results with.
