This year, I’ve noticed some abundance in my life.
And abundance of WRINKLES.
I guess it’s to be expected, being 35 and all. But that doesn’t mean I like it!
I’ve never spent much time or money on my skin. I’m not sure if that’s the cause of the pesky under eye wrinkles that I’m trying not to make friends with, or if it’s just plain age.
Either way, I decided a few months ago to spend some money on a decent eye cream. I’ve used the Burt’s Bees eye cream, and although it kept my eye area moist, it didn’t help wrinkles. I’ve tried a few department store brands too. At Walgreens one day, I saw the Olay Professional Pro-X line. On impulse, I shelled out over $60 (on sale) and hoped for a miracle.
The started kit I purchased came with three things: an eye cream, a day time moisturizer (age repair lotion with spf 30) and a wrinkle smoothing cream to be used at night. The daytime cream has sunblock in it, and I don’t love the smell. It feels nice, but I don’t love it. I’ve ended up using the evening cream all the time, both morning and night. The eye cream has a nice texture, no smell, and doesn’t run under my makeup.
Overall, I’ve been pretty impressed. I do feel like my eye area looks a little bit better, bu no miracles have happened as of yet. I’ll buy the eye cream and the wrinkle smoothing cream again, but not the day time age repair.
If you’re looking for a nice wrinkle cream (with no miracles), then try this new line. Amazon has the starter kit for only $46.63, which is $20 less than I paid at Walgreens.
