You Want To See Incredible By Nature Eye Gel - An Innovative Organic Eye Treat

Today I want to bring you a new and innovative eye treatment called Incredible By Nature Eye Gel.  It's unlike any other eye formula I've used.  Incredible By Nature Eye Gel is an all natural and organic solution, made in the USA and not tested on animals.  The eye gel is hypoallergenic and safest for even sensitive skin types.  I have a 2 ounce size bottle with a pump on top.  The newer style packaging has a pump lid which I think will be an awesome and better mechanism for dispersing the product.

When I received my bottle, I needed to shake it up a bit to make sure it was all mixed properly.  The pump bottle spurts out a little bit more than needed so I'm really happy to see the new jar, with a more controllable form of delivery.  Even though you can purchase this right now at the amazing price of $19.99, you still want to get the best dollar to use ratio in a product as possible.  I had a tough time with this pump, but it is the only complaint I have.

There are amazing and effective ingredients in the serum.  I can't find the product list online, but I will show you pictures of the ingredient list on the bottle.

This product is clinically proven and dermatologists have approved it.  You can see why from the ingredient list.  Among the standouts to me are retinol palmitate, retinol, honey, hyaluronic acid, sweet almond oil, olive oil, aloe, vitamin E, coconut oil, honeysuckle extract, jojoba oil and matrixyl acid.  These are proven anti-aging ingredients and I can attest that in this formula, they work to give a more youthful vibrant look around the eyes.

My experience:  From my first two uses, I swore I felt a difference.  My undereye felt firmer and less textured.  As I've continued to use it, I've seen the depth of my lines lessening and the continued benefit of smoothness under the eye.  Regular use of the product had lightened dark spots that were forming and hydrated the area.

As I often do when testing a skincare product, I stopped using it for a week to see if I noticed a difference without it and I did.  The dark spots were returning and my skin didn't feel as smooth.  I saw more puffiness and dang, I was glad to get back on it!!  While it is hydrating, it's not a thick cream that is prone to plug pores and cause milia, but rather is like a thinner serum.

It is my opinion that everyone should use this serum.  I do use it in conjunction with an eye cream and I've been really happy with the results.  The price of the 2 oz product is usually $39.99, still a bargain for an effective eye product, but you can purchase it now at this link for just $14.99 AND you get an additional 30% off!!!  This brings the cost down to ten bucks and change...for an effective eye treatment!!!!   Amazing price!   Have you ever heard of an eye product that works at such a great price?  It's totally worth a try.

New Becca X Chrissy Teigen Palette First Impressions, Swatches, Pics and More!

When I first saw pictures of this palette in blurry little snagged photos online, I didn't think it was too exciting.  The more pictures that were released, the more I thought I might be interested.  When I followed coverage of the Becca X Chrissy Teigen Influencer party in LA, I saw scads of pictures and swatches posted.  Then I got excited.  Like I couldn't wait to get this palette.  Have a view of my youtube and see if it lived up to my expectations or not.  I'm showing pictures, swatches, a first impression and application.

The Becca X Chrissy Teigen palette will be available for sale on Sephora.com and in stores on May 11th, 2017 for $46.  Check it out and let me know if you think this palette is a fit for your style.  I'd love to know!

How I Enjoy Complexion Perfection From Lancome!!

These items were provided for free from Lancome thru Influenster. All opinions are my own.

I received a box through the Influenster program from Lancome that contained new products to test.  It's always exciting for a beauty influencer to be involved in testing new products.  The first item in the box was Teint Idole Ultra Longwear Makeup Stick with SPF 21, ($42).

The color I received was 215 Buff (N), a shade of beige with neutral tones.  This is perfect for my skintone.  I knew I would love it because I'd purchased the exact same stick in the same color last spring.

I really like this foundation stick.  It glides brilliantly and smooths to perfection on the skin.  It is comfortable, hydrating and longwearing.  Teint Idole Ultra Longwear stick is oil-free, smudge resistant, transfer free and suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin.  It comes in a wide range of 20 shades.  You can find the ingredient list here.

The next item in the box is the Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage concealer, ($31).  I received the color 110 Ivory (c).  This is classified as a cool shade and is in a typical squeeze type tube.  When I first looked at it, I thought it would be too orange for me but it is perfect for my coloring.  It covers my purple undereye circles and blends easily over any small marks I might have.  It has full coverage with a very lightweight feel in a non-creasing formula.  I'm really pleased with this item in the length of wear, color and how easily it blends.  You can see swatches below, (l to r: foundation, concealer, highlighter, lipgloss).


The Lancome Click N Glow Highlighting Pen, ($23), comes in four colors.  I received D'Or, which is a golden shimmer.  This is designed for sophisticated brightening rather than the in your face kind of brightness. although it can be built up for a more obvious kind of glow.  It's in a click pen with a doe foot applicator.


You can mix this with foundation or concealer for overall brightening, use it for spot highlighting, or layered with any other highlighter you might have.  This pen is really cool.  The delivery is perfect for travel or reapplying throughout the day if you need to.  I plan to pick up the Rose, a light pink tone, as well.  It is infused with glycerin and vitamin E to insure your skin stays hydrated.

The fourth item I received was Lancome Le Mettalique Metallic Lip Lacquer in Mirrored Nude, ($22), a pink champagne metallic gloss.  This was already on my wishlist and it's travel size fits easily into a purse or pocket.  This gloss has a lightweight hydrating formula with a multi-dimensional shine.  Mirrored Nude is the lightest of the colors.

Lancome can be purchased at Ulta, Sephora, Nordstrom, and all other department stores.  My thanks to Influenster and Lancome for the opportunity to try these products.

Have you tried any of these four?  What do you think?  What is your very favorite Lancome product?
