The Eye Cream that was Finally Invented!

Since I have been trying new Younique products like a kid in a candy store, I was very drawn to the Uplift Eye Serum. As I am making my way (too quickly) through my 30's, my forehead wrinkles are more defined, and my happiness is punishing me with crow's feet. 

I have tried what feels like every product out there to soften the harsh forehead wrinkles that my expressive facial expressions have left me with, and pull my face tighter and smoother. I have yet to find something that actually works! From my product ordering addiction, to spending hours at Target or Nordstrom scouring the anti-aging sections, I had about given up. I was ready to own my wrinkles that were only becoming more prominent, and embrace that aging is not something I can control, especially with a cream or serum.

Until I found this product.

Now, I am not interested in sounding like an infomercial. I would not post this on my personal blog if it wasn't something that has blown me away. It is insane-- I have no idea what they put in this product, however, I know that all of their products are naturally based. And, that was enough for me to feel okay about trying it.

I am was the midst of a two-week test to see if it is working. Within day ONE I saw results. Holy macaroni! One tiny drop covered all of my crows feet and I even put some on my forehead- because, why not? The second day of using this product, I was literally told by my best friend that I looked "rested." She didn't even know that I was using it! OH, DID I MENTION IT LIGHTENS DARK CIRCLES? Why yes, yes it does. What a perk!

Here are my favorite before and after photos from the Uplift (heaven) serum. You will be blown away. I am so relieved that this product is out there!

BB Cream: The Latest Trend!

For some reason lately, I have been seeing BB Creams, Lotions, Face Wash, and Makeup popping up all over the marketplace. This triggered a curiosity within me: What is a BB Cream, and why are they so popular? I put my research brain on, and here is what I learned.

1. What is a BB Cream? The "BB" in it's name stands for "Blemish Balm." The concept for these creams originated in Asian markets, and because of their great qualities, have become popular in Western culture as well. BB Creams have been referred to as "tinted moisturizers on steroids," by Allure Magazine, due to their amazing ability to change your skin from the outside in. 

2. What Do BB Creams Do? Most BB Creams on the market provide light, fresh coverage, moisturization, sun protection, and age defying vitamins and minerals. Talk about the perfect package! 

3. Can a BB Cream Provide Perfect Coverage? Why yes! While many BB makeup on the market can be heavy and pore clogging (ironically!), I have found one that is amazing-- I can't stress how fabulous this product is. It has been a life-saver for my daily routine-- and my skin looks and feels younger each time I use it. Younique's perfect product has given people AMAZING results. Check it out!
