Review: Overall- the gel feels a bit greasy going on, thus it is a bit problematic during the day, but overnight it’s okay for an eye cream. I find that it’s really thick and you really have to pat it on to get your skin to absorb it. It makes my undereye area feel moist which is great and I do notice that it makes my concealer look a bit better under the eye area. Personally, It does not feel like it has many anti-aging benefits which is what I was initially looking for in an eye cream. My under eye area is very dry and sometimes I get dark circles. I feel that I need something more “heavy duty” for my under eye area.
I honestly think I’ve tried better eye creams than this. Another thing that I dislike about this cream is the packaging – Although it comes in a pump and it’s very hygienic, you don’t really know how much you have left in there. Continue reading “Boscia Enlivening Amino-AG Eye Treatment”

First Impressions: I have been using this magical lotion over a week and I find it different compared to the creams that I generally use. Different in the sense, that this lotion has a consistency slightly thicker than water. It absorbs into my skin quickly as well. This product makes my skin appear healthy and makes it slightly dewy. The moisture locks in all day, sometimes I even wear this under my primer. I just love it! It is quite expensive, but if it lasts me at-least 3 months I see myself buying another.

I’ve had my eyes on these products for a while now but I’m going to try waiting, which will be very difficult for me. I’m planning on getting them when Sephora has their annual sale! Which should be coming up sometime in November. Where we will get 20% off. I plan on splurging that day because I won’t feel so bad given that I’m saving some money. Let me know if you have tried any of them and which products you are currently lusting over in the comments.
