Review: Eye Cream

I love products. Especially eye care products. You see, I suffer from the malady called "dark undereye circles." Yes. It's true. :(

Since I have zero qualms about trying something new, especially something in a well-done commercial, I picked up a tiny little bottle of this stuff at the grocery store. I did think to myself, "For eighteen bucks at a GROCERY store, this stuff had better work!" And guess what? It did. No one has been more amazed than me. I didn't think it would.

I use this lightweight gel-like cream each morning after I wash my face and before I put on all of my layers of Obagi stuff and makeup. It perks up my eye area and does make a difference on my circles. Best $18 I've spent in a long time.

Obagi, Day 28

Well, I've been at this for about 4 weeks now. There have been some days here and there where I skipped the Retin-A or used regular moisturizer instead of the skin bleaching and exfoliating creams, but for the most part, I've been extremely faithful to the program.

Drumroll please...

The fine lines around my eyes diminsh more and more each day.

The little acne scars that I only recently created (like, WTF??? I'm in my 30s! I should know better!) are becoming less visible as my skin regenerates.

My overall complexion is brighter.

One of my friends told me last week that my skin "glowed" and I wasn't even wearing makeup.

I'm still not posting a picture yet. Not until I've gone through at least two more weeks. Then y'all can have the before and after shots.

Obagi, Day Eleven

Well folks, it's day 11. My face is so red and itchy and peeling that I can hardly stand it. But then I look at my right eye... And I notice the visible lack of surface lines. The crow's feet have all but disappeared on that side. So has the line that goes from my nose to my mouth. But only on the right side. My left crow's feet and mouth line are both still intact (GRR!), but they are a bit less visible.

If a person can tough out the peeling and redness, the results will speak for themselves. The true test for me will be going back to the office on Monday, peeling face and all...

One thing on my list is now checked off...

And I didn't even have to win the lottery!

Dr Pop gave me the above bag for Christmas. While technically, it's a tote bag and a bit too obnoxious to carry around all the time as a purse, I haven't been able to help myself. So I'm THAT girl now... The one who, with one turn to look back at something can take out people like bowling pins. It's so awesome!
