A Few Summer Eye Creams I'm Currently Loving

 A quick roundup of some new eye creams I have been having on rotation these past few months. 

A Few End Of Summer Eye Creams I'm Currently Loving Review, Photos














The Bliss Vitamin C + Tri-Peptide, Collagen Protecting Eye Cream ($25; bliss.com) is a very lightweight, hydrating eye cream that helps my under eye area look more awake. It's great under makeup and helps add moisture without the greasy feel.

The Super Multi-Corrective Anti-Aging Eye Cream ($55; kiehl’s.com)  is a new addition to the Kiehl’s skincare line. It's a lovely under eye cream that I like to use under the eyes, on my lids and all the way up to my brow bone. It's super hydrating, lightweight and can be used day or night. I’d recommend this for anyone starting out with more than a basic eye cream or if you are  looking for an overall anti aging cream that does more than just hydrate.

The Lancome Absolue Revitalizing Anti-Aging Eye Cream ($132; lancome-usa.com) has been one of my absolute favorites so far. It's hydrating, smoothening and luxurious. A little bit goes a really long way with this one and helps make my eye area less fatigued, smooth and very hydrated. It's a great pick for anyone looking for an anti aging, super hydrating cream for day or night.

The First Aid Beauty Hydrating Eye Cream With Hyaluronic Acid ($30; firstaidbeauty.com)  is a basic eye cream for anyone in their 20’s. It hydrates lightly and is good for anyone wanting a light layer or moisture under makeup. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t feel heavy and the small tube is easy to travel with.

Summer Beauty Finds Under $20

A few new summer discoveries under $20 that I’ve been loving lately!

Summer Beauty Finds Under $20

The Essence Extreme Shine Volume Lipgloss ($3.99; ulta.com) is such a fabulous plumping lip gloss that is moisturizing, shiny and comes in some amazing colors. I love it by itself or as a subtle topper with lipsticks.

The Double Trouble Mascaras ($5.99; ulta.com) by essence are amazing for anyone with short, stubby lashes. They help build volume, separate and lengthen. It is easy to go overboard with this one since the brush is very wide and big, but one coat adds a lot of volume. It comes in both waterproof and regular, but I prefer the regular since it is easier to work with for my lashes.

The Aveeno Strength & Length Plant Protein Blend ($7.99; target.com) is a fabulous shampoo for anyone with normal-dry hair. It cleanses beautifully, adds a lot of bounce and volume. A little bit goes a long way with this one and it doesn't leave my scalp feeling oily. The conditioner is great if you have fine hair since it is lightly moisturizing and washes off clean without making hair greasy.

Essie’s Summer 2022 ($9; target.com) collection features six bright shades in cream and metallic finishes. The formula, just like everything else from essie is just smooth, easy to work with and dries quickly.

The Extreme Volume Mascara + Bold Lash Primer ($19.99; ulta.com) is a new mascara from Honest Beauty. The formula features a blue tinted primer on one side and a volumizing mascara on the other. The primer helps the mascara adhere better to the lashes and also makes the black pigment in the mascara pop. It's a natural formula featuring castor oil that helps promote lash growth. I also like how even after two coats there's absolutely no crunchy feeling or flaking.

Earth Kiss (​​loveearthkiss.com) is a brand that is new to me and their Super Naturals range of face masks are great for a quick detox and boost of radiance. The Kombucha and Turmeric detox mask especially is my favorite. It is easy to apply, leaves skin feeling refreshed and helps wash off clean without drying skin out.

Youth To The People Retinal + Niacinamide Youth Serum

Youth To The People Retinal + Niacinamide Youth Serum

The Retinal + Niacinamide Youth Serum ($68; sephora.com) is a recent launch from Youth To The People and has been on my skincare rotation the past few weeks. Its a multi-effect nighttime serum with the power of retinaldehyde to smooth texture, blemished skin and overall improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to this, it also helps brighten skin. The texture is fantastic and feels more like a hydrating lotion than a serum and doesn’t dry or make skin peel like other retinols. I would describe this as gentle, yet effective. The niacinamide also helps brighten skin overnight, leaving it feeling smooth and radiant the next day. Currently I use this about 2-3 nights a week, but when I incorporated it into my skincare routine I started with once a week. It's a gentle enough retinol for sensitive skin like mine and is overall an amazing addition to my nighttime skincare routine. Like everything else from Youth To The People this one too has been a winner for me!
