In my teens I tugged at them with hard, cheap pencils and inferior cosmetics. In my twenties I ringed them with dark kohl and went to bed at night with black rings around them after being up all night partying. And now that I’m officially in my thirties, I realize the error of my ways and I’m doing penance for those years of abuse.
The skin around your eyes is four times thinner than anywhere else on your face. If you’re going to notice subtle signs of aging anywhere, it’s going to be around your eyes first. Think about it – if you’re smiling and laughing, your eyes crinkle up. If you’re sad and crying, your eyes crinkle up. If you wear eye makeup and don’t clean it off thoroughly yet gently at night, over time you’ll notice dark circles under your eyes that are completely of your own making.
Which is why I’m all about starting a preventative anti aging regimen NOW. And I’ve got an awesome new weapon in my anti aging arsenal — Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye. If you’re serious about skincare, sit up and take notes!
This high performance serum is the companion to the uber popular Advanced Night Repair serum, but ANR eye really targets that delicate around-eye area, bringing a background of 25 years of groundbreaking DNA research to the table. If you love fancy packaging, you will LOVE this – it comes in a teeny jar with a little applicator. Dip the ball of the applicator in the jar, apply three teeny tiny dots around your sensitive eye area, and rub it in carefully with your finger. I pay special attention to the creases directly under my eye and on the side.
You’ll feel it sinking in – and fret not, the product is both dermatologist and opthamologist tested. While you sleep it will combat your enemies — fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles, dryness, puffiness — poof, vamoose! And when you wake, your eye area will feel soft, silky, refreshed and ready for the next day’s makeup. Love that! And if you’re like me and you love a free gift, get thee to Macy’s — if you buy a bottle of Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Eye, you will get a free summer getaway gift which includes a super cute striped beach tote, lipstick, eye makeup remover (in travel size! Bonus) and More Than Mascara. Go forth and be fabulous!
