High-End Moisturizers – Face & Eyes

IMG_6629

This past month my skin has been going through a “rough” stage. My eczema was a bit crazy and my skin was so dry that I stayed away from mirrors because I would just see flaky skin, Yuck! For those thinking yes I did try a exfoliant, but you can only exfoliate so much until my face and my eczema hated me :(. With that little ramble out-of-the-way I come to this post. I decided that I would treat myself last month to some new skin care goodies at Sephora. I saved a few bucks and decided to look into high-end moisturizer for my face and my eyes. Here is what I picked up.

I picked up this set of OLE HENRICKSEN products which can be see here . The ladies at my sephora really loved these products and said that they should be good to use on my skin. So far this is okay I am not super trilled, but I feel I need to use the products a while longer to be able to review them properly.

The real reason I saved up money was for a proper moisturizer for my eyes. My under eyes are the ones my eczema attacks first and leaves that area looking really flaky and dull. One of the ladies that worked at Sephora spent 10 minutes explaining to me what this plasma does. It basically eats away dead skin and leaves a smooth canvas without harming the under eyes. The only downside is that you can only use this once a day and it’s only for the under eye area! You can check it out here .

Overall I think I am going to be sticking with my drugstore moisturizer, but I will be repurchasing the PERRICONE MD Blue Plasma Orbital since it has been doing a really good job with my under eyes.

Any drugstore recommendations you all like? Have you ever splurged on a high-end moisturizer?

    I got a little tester in one of my ipsy bags and i really liked it 🙂 it was the face hydrating creme. Smelt kind of citrusy and delicious! I haven’t actually run across anyone elses blog about this product except for out of their ipsy so it was nice reading something new about it! xo

    I got a free facial at La Prairie during the Nordstrom Trend Show, it was a fun experience but their products cost an arm and a leg… I can’t justify the cost when I think my skin is fine. Have you used coconut oil? It works really well as a moisturizer for me, just pay attention to how much you apply because it very easily becomes too much. I felt like it promoted lash growth too.

      No I have not tried coconut oil. I’ve heard it’s good to cook with,but I guess with all of the properties it would be good for the skin as well. Your so lucky you got a free facial those don’t come around too often :).

        It was definitely fun, I thought they would make me pay for something so I was prepared to shell out some cash but definitely look in to getting a facial at the trend show if you go!
