My new BFF-Marcelle Instant Eye Makeup remover

*I received this product for review.*

One of my favorite ‘looks’ for my face is what I like to call a ‘heavy lash’ -just very thick, luscious lashes.  In the past, I’ve used lash extensions to achieve this and while pleased with the results, was never happy with the maintenance (combing, brushing, not being able to place eye makeup near them, having to be mindful of sweating too much, etc).  I am a huge fan of mascara and have SO many different types-fiber, tube, curling, volumizing, lengthening, volumizing AND lengthening.

So when you’re like me and you like a LOT of LASH, taking it all off at the end of the day can be a daunting task.  It’s a 2-3 step process that includes multiple products like oils, wipes, creams and a TON of cotton. It’s also a time suck-I am familiar with the 10 minute eye makeup removal process.

Enter in my new BFF from Marcelle-lazy girls, this one’s for you. No more excuses about taking off your makeup at night.  eyemakeupremover

Oh where have you been all my days?  This product WORKS and there’s not much more to say….it is truly instant and I love it.  I’m more than halfway through the bottle and starting to panic.  It doesn’t irritate my eyes, there’s no fragrance.  I hold it over my eye for 10 seconds, then wipe.  That’s it.   Here’s my results after holding a cotton pad over one eye (with the product on the pad):

Can’t say anymore than I have.  I adore this product and will use it and use it and use it.  When I run out, I’ll buy it again.  I suggest you do the same.

You need it-Vichy Aqualia Thermal Boosting Essence Water

*I received this product for review* To be perfectly honest, I have never known quite what to think about ‘essence’ products. Sure, I’ve seen them-in the many Asian beauty stores that I frequent….and they have always been suggested to me but I thought to myself, what does ‘ESSENCE’ do that my toner, serum, and moisturizer read more »

Undereye issues meet their worst enemy with the Eye Perfecting Brush from EcoTools

I’ve had an undereye ‘situation’ since my 20’s (yes over 20 years ago-SIGH).  I’ve tried a lot of things, combinations of products, different tools to apply-and I still have the situation. I’ve had a moderate amount of success with this new brush from EcoTools and I thought I would take a moment and just sit read more »

Best face forward-the aging situation. My experience & a first step with Teosyal!

  Who googled the last word in my title?  Don’t be embarassed if you did….I didn’t know what it was either at first. I thought by 2015, people would be ‘over’ the whole dermal filler/neuromodulator “stigma” but lo and behold, I still get raised eyebrows when I talk about it.  I have a BIG soapbox read more »

One of my major skincare concerns is my hyperpigmentation, a result of my former read more »
