More December Skin Care Empties! 🥳
I didn’t expect to finish more skin care items after posting my December Skin Care Empties. Here’s more!
RoC Multi Correxion Hydrate + Plump Eye Cream:
I have 2 tubes of the RoC Multi Correxion Hydrate + Plump Eye Cream left. I finished one this month. I stopped using it on my eyes a while ago due to skin irritation and burning. It made my eyes look super swollen. Since I’m trying to use it up, I’ve been using it on my body. I haven’t had any issues with using it on my body. It’s such a waste using this product like this. This is supposed to be an eye cream. Who wants to use a 0.5 fl. oz. (15 mL) product on their body? Definitely not a product I would purchase again. Don’t waste your money.
Trader Joe’s Daily Facial Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40:
I really liked the texture and consistency of this sunscreen. It’s soft, soothing, and moisturizing on the skin. It’s full of silicones, lol. Yeah, the silicone texture was way too much for my skin. But, the sunscreen was super easy to apply and blend into the skin. It smooths over the skin and vanishes nicely. It’s clear and doesn’t leave any cast behind. It works great as a makeup primer too. It makes the skin appear softer and blurs a few imperfections here and there. Also, it’s broad spectrum and SPF 40. I finished my last bottle of the Trader Joe’s Daily Facial Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40. Will I purchase it again? With this sunscreen, sometimes it breaks me out, sometimes it doesn’t. I’m not sure if I’ll buy it again. Maybe if I’m at Trader Joe’s and shopping for groceries. It’s not a bad sunscreen product, to be honest.
Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream:
I finished a jar of Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream this month. I stopped using this face cream on my face so long ago that I don’t remember when. So this is a heavier cream made for the facial skin. I used this face cream for quite some time. I eventually stopped using it due to it clogging my pores. It’s just too heavy for my facial skin and didn’t do much for my skin. My skin never felt truly moisturized. It felt heavy and cakey on the skin. I didn’t see improvements in my skin while using it. I just stuck to it for so long because I needed a moisturizer and couldn’t find one that’ suitable for my skin type. Many times, I thought it worked on my skin. It just didn’t after plenty attempts. I have 2 jars of this face cream left and am trying to finish it up. I know for sure that I won’t repurchase again. Out it goes!
Melano CC Vitamin C Essence:
Finally, another tube of Melano CC Vitamin C Essence down! I think I have 4 more left! 😭 I’ve tried using this essence on my face so many times that I gave up. It just doesn’t work for my skin type. It doesn’t brighten my skin like I thought it did. I used it then stopped using it. There was no difference in my skin before and after. I haven’t noticed a reduction in acne marks or evening of the skin tone when using it. I never liked the oily, grimy texture that it leaves behind either. It leaves a matte finish, but there’s some odd residue texture thing going on after application. I need to find a new vitamin c product. This one isn’t working for me.

My Acne Journey: 7 MONTHS!!!
I took a whole week off of tret. I just wanted to take a break from it for a little bit and restart maybe next week?? I’m not sure yet. So this week, I focused on using an antioxidant. I chose vitamin c. Yes, it’s back, hah!
Vitamin C 🍊
I started using vitamin c again. Not the powder version. The essence or serum version. I started off with whatever vitamin c product that I had (Melano CC Vitamin C Essence). I used Melano for two days. Melano has a lightweight, oily, greasy texture to it. It absorbs into the skin fast and leaves a matte finish. It slightly moisturizes the skin but not by much. I’m not a fan of the texture of the product. The essence stung my skin upon application. It irritated my skin just a little bit. After a few seconds, the stinging sensation disappeared. So, what are the results from this product? The essence brightened my skin instantly after a day of use. I noticed a brighter, more glowy complexion. But, I stopped using it after 2 days because I wanted to try another vitamin c product. I’ve been using Melano on and off over the years. I think it’s time to let it go if it hasn’t worked for me for this long. The vitamin c product I’m using now is L’Oreal Revitalift 10% Pure Vitamin C Serum. I picked this product up this week. This vitamin c product contains 10% ascorbic acid. It also comes in a metal tube. One of the reasons why I chose to purchase this one. I’ve only used this serum for…I’m nearing a week soon. I started off using it at night at first then moved up to twice a day, morning and night. So far, the texture of the serum is soft and moisturizing. It has a silicone feel to it, but I’m not bothered by it. It smooths over my skin nicely and effortlessly. It feels nice, and it’s very easy to apply to the skin. I only use a pea-size amount for the whole face. I’m liking this serum a lot more compared to the Melano (texture-wise). As for results, I can’t say it. I haven’t been using it for too long. I’ll make an update on my new vitamin c serum soon.
What happened when I took a break from tret??
As mentioned earlier, I took a week off of tret. I’m glad I did. My skin needed it. I still don’t know when I’m going to restart it or if I am. My skin looks pretty decent right now. When using tret, my skin looked so thin. I lost so much fullness from my face. It’s been a week off of tret, and my skin looks normal again. My skin thickness is back! It looks more youthful and more natural-looking now. It’s not shiny and plastic-like. Tret gave me this weird, odd look to my skin. It makes my skin look smoother, but how it makes my skin look overall is a bit too much for my liking. It just doesn’t look natural or even normal. It made my skin appear more aged. Hmmmm, that’s something to think about. 🤔
At the beginning of the break, my skin was so dry. I stopped using a moisturizer because the moisturizer I was using was breaking me out (Vanicream Daily Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin). I didn’t have any other moisturizer to use. All I had was CeraVe Healing Ointment. I used it. Applied a whole bunch of it to my face. I know slugging isn’t for me, but my skin was too dry to do nothing. I love the CeraVe Healing Ointment too. It’s a versatile product and contains ingredients that I love like ceramides and hyaluronic acid. It helped to prevent my skin from drying out, but I won’t be doing this (slugging) again. It was a once in a while type of thing. It feels too sticky. It gets in my hair and makes it difficult for me to get a good night’s rest. It’s difficult to wash off in the morning too. It is oily after all.
During this break, I started a new acne product. I needed a product to treat my acne. I picked up the CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser. I’ve been meaning to try this product out. What put me off from trying it out were the negative reviews on it. But, everyone’s skin is different. It could work. I’m currently using it. Stay tuned for my 1 week experience on this product soon! It’s coming up real soon! The other cleanser I was using was from Neutrogena. I stopped using it for now just to try out CeraVe. Neutrogena cleaned my skin and didn’t dry out my skin, but I needed a product that would help with acne. In particular, those close f*cking comedones. They’ve been hanging out on my skin for far too long! Also, it’s time to try a new acne product when I’m not using any harsh acne products.
Remember that eye cream I stopped using? The RoC Multi Correxion Hydrate + Plump Eye Cream. I stopped using it on my eye area weeks ago, but I started using it on my neck for a week. After a week of using it on my neck and chest area (to finish it up, need to use it somewhere), I developed a rash on my neck! It was red, swollen, and itchy. WTF. I don’t know what they did to the formula of this eye cream, but it sucks. It used to be soft, smooth, and moisturizing. Now it just burns and makes the skin itch. It’s not cheap either. 😡
Happy 7 months! 🥳 This is my last update on my acne journey. It’s time to move on to new things. I feel like this journey has run its course. I need something new. A new adventure. A fresh start. Look forward to a new update on my experience with the CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser!

Review: RoC Multi Correxion Hydrate + Plump Eye Cream
I’ve been using RoC Multi Correxion Hydrate + Plump Eye Cream for some time now. I’ve gone through two tubes. I’m now on my third. I think that’s more than enough time for me to share my experience with this product. Here are my thoughts on this eye cream. 🙂
What’s the purpose of the RoC Multi Correxion Hydrate + Plump Eye Cream? It contains peptides to lift, firm, and contour. 1.5% hyaluronic acid to smooth and fill in lines. Caffeine to de-puff and rejuvenate. In 1 week, 100% had visibly reduced crow’s feet and visibly hydrated skin. In 4 weeks, 85% saw a visible reduction in under-eye puffiness. In 8 weeks, 88% saw visibly firmer-looking skin around the eye and 85% saw a visible reduction in dark circles. It is dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested, fragrance-free, paraben-free, and non-comedogenic.
My Experience with RoC Multi Correxion Hydrate + Plump Eye Cream:
Texture and Application
The eye cream is a soft, smoothing gel. I love the texture and consistency of this eye cream. It’s so silky and smooth. When applied to the under eyes, it feels very gentle, elegant, and soothing. It glides over the under eyes and skin around the eyes effortlessly. It doesn’t tug at the eye area. Very easy, simple application process. I just love how soft and smooth it is on the skin. It absorbs pretty fast into the skin and leaves the skin feeling hydrated. Worked well underneath moisturizer and sunscreen too. I didn’t experience any pilling due to how fast it sinks into the skin.
A moisturizing eye cream.
If you’re searching for a moisturizing eye cream, this works to hydrate the skin. I didn’t experience any dryness. My under eyes were left moisturized. Once again, fast-absorbing, moisturized skin.
In 1 week, I couldn’t tell if it helped to reduce crow’s feet, but it did help hydrate my skin. I noticed instant hydration. It didn’t take 1 week. A regular moisturizer would hydrate and moisturize the skin as good as this tiny 0.5 fl. oz. (15 mL) eye cream product. I didn’t think it was that much of a difference between this eye cream and a moisturizer. In 4 weeks, I didn’t notice any de-puffing of under eye puffiness. In 8 weeks, I didn’t see firmer looking skin or a reduction in dark under eye circles. The only thing I noticed was hydration. If you’re looking into trying this product, I’m not going to stop you. Everyone’s experience is different. From my experience, it was simply just a hydrating eye cream that contains peptides, caffeine, and hyaluronic acid. I didn’t see any improvements in my under eyes or skin around my eyes after going through two tubes of this eye cream. Just hydration.
I’ve finished two tubes of this eye cream already. I’m on my third. The first two went quite well. I didn’t experience any burning sensation or irritation. But once I started using the third one, my under eyes were extremely irritated. It looked like an allergic reaction. It was red, sore-looking, and burned like hell. Maybe I received a bad batch? Maybe the formula changed?? I have a fourth tube of the eye cream. Unfortunately, it smells just like the third tube. It has a very strong chemical smell to it. It doesn’t smell right. The products I have are new too. I recently purchased them. I have a fourth one because I bought the third and fourth together, lol. The first two I finished up didn’t have this strong chemical smell. Who knows what might’ve happened. Either way, I stopped using the eye cream on my eyes. After I stopped using it, all symptoms vanished. I’m quite disheartened with my experience with this eye cream after this happened. It made my eyes look worse and emphasized wrinkles.
I was going to keep using this eye cream, since it feels nice on the skin and contains ingredients like peptides, caffeine, and hyaluronic acid. My first couple of tubes of this eye cream went well. It didn’t help with crow’s feet, fine lines, wrinkles, dark under eye circles, puffiness, but it did help to hydrate my skin. I’ve used plenty of eye creams and have never found one that did anything amazing other than moisturize the skin. And, I really liked the texture of this eye cream. It’s silky and smooth. I love how little effort I have to put into applying it. It just glides and absorbs quick. It works great underneath my other skin care products too. BUT, since I had a bad experience with it (burning, third tube), I stopped using this eye cream. Like, wtf happened??!! I haven’t used it for a week and am happy with my decision. My under eyes went back to normal. It’s not red, puffy, swollen, and super wrinkly anymore. The under eye area is very delicate. I can’t trust using this product on my eyes after this experience. I won’t repurchase. What a huge disappointment.
This is what the eye cream looks like. Brand new. It’s a clear gel. When I twisted the cap open, the product seeps out.
What Eye Creams Have I Been Using? 👀
Today’s topic is going to be on eye creams! I haven’t talked about eye creams in a while. It’s been a good minute. So today, I’m spilling the beannns. What eye creams do I use? Well, I have more than a couple of eye creams I’ve been using religiously in the morning and at night. I don’t know why I use this many. I have a skin care addiction that I’m trying to tame. 😮💨 But since I already have these eye creams, I’m here to share them! Let’s begin with what’s in the photo (iUNIK Propolis Vitamin Eye Cream!!).
iUNIK Propolis Vitamin Eye Cream:
This eye cream is rich and creamy. It’s meant for the eyes and face, but I only use it on my eyes. The main ingredients are propolis extract (40.5%) and hippophae rhamnoides fruit extract (0.2%). It contains a bunch of other beneficial ingredients too, such as niacinamide, betaine, sodium hyaluronate, licorice root extract, beta-glucan, and so much more. The ingredient list of this product is pretty extensive. This eye cream works very well as a moisturizing eye cream. It’s one of the many eye creams that I use that actually leaves the skin around my eyes moisturized. It also helps to moisturize my eyelashes too. I like this product. It’s affordable for an eye cream that comes in a 30 mL squeeze tube. Most eye creams I’ve encountered have been in tiny tubes (0.5 fl. oz.) and costs so much more. I think this eye cream is a good eye cream. I’ve gone through a few tubes of it already. As for fine lines and wrinkles, it didn’t do much for them. It’s just a good moisturizing eye cream. I guess moisturizing helps to diminish some fine lines here and there. On my skin, I haven’t noticed much of a difference with fine lines or wrinkles but love the moisture it provides my skin.
Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream:
This eye cream isn’t that moisturizing. I’ve gone through a few tubes of it already. I prefer the iUNIK Propolis Vitamin Eye Cream when it comes to moisture. The only reason I’m still using Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream is because it comes in a 30 mL (1 fl. oz.) tube. It’s super affordable. It also contains centella asiatica extract (49%), asiaticoside, asiatic acid, and madecassic acid. It’s supposed to help with wrinkles, but I haven’t noticed any improvements in wrinkles or even fine lines. It hasn’t irritated my skin, the ingredients look good, I just kept on using it, lol. I still have a bunch more tubes of this product left. I guess I’ll continue to use it, haha. I’m not sure if I’m going to purchase it again when I’m done with all of them. It’s one of those products I’m just keeping around just because.
Benton Fermentation Eye Cream:
This is another favorite eye cream of mine. It’s the Benton Fermentation Eye Cream. The product feels super silky and creamy. Whenever I apply this eye cream to my eye area, it just feels really nice on the skin. I love the ingredients of this eye cream too. It contains galactomyces ferment filtrate, bifida ferment lysate, macadamia seed oil, aloe leaf extract, allantoin, betaine, panthenol, beta-glucan, and so on. This eye cream seems very compatible with my skin. Every time I use it, my skin improves in terms of softness and smoothness. Once again, just like the other eye creams, not much of a difference when it comes to fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area. I just really like the texture and consistency of this product. I enjoy using it.
RoC Retinol Correxion Line Smoothing Eye Cream:
I’ve been an avid user of the RoC Retinol Correxion Line Smoothing Eye Cream. I think it’s been over 10+ years now. The formulation of this product is soft, silky, smooth, and blends into the skin well. It contains retinol and copper gluconate. It’s at the end of the ingredient list, but that’s OK. Why? Because it’s effective. Effective as in my eye area would look much worse if I didn’t use this eye cream. I remember when I tried to switch to another eye cream (Neutrogena brand), and the skin around my eyes looked terrible. I went back to RoC Retinol Correxion Line Smoothing Eye Cream so quick. As for fine lines and wrinkles, I think it helped. As I said before, my under eyes would’ve been much worse if I didn’t use this eye cream. It helps with maintenance, but it’s not perfection. I think this is the only eye cream I’ve used that does give some results. The main reason why I’m still using it! I don’t have crow’s feet so I can’t comment much on that. As for dark under eye circles and under-eye puffiness, nope, did nothing for them. You’re better off just getting enough sleep and eating healthy. I have pretty bad under eye circles, but I think it’s genetics. This eye cream is a staple in my skin care routine. It’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Love it.
Roc Mutli Correxion Hydrate + Plump Eye Cream:
I picked up another RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream. There’s a few others I tried too, but I wasn’t impressed by them. This one caught my eye because it contains hyaluronic acid and peptides. The formula of this eye cream is very soft and silky. It feels very elegant on the skin. I’m on my second tube of this eye cream, and I like it so far. It truly does moisturize the eye area. It leaves my under eyes soft and smooth. I think I’m in love with another RoC Retinol eye cream! It feels amazing on my skin. It contains sodium hyaluronate, caffeine, peptides, zinc gluconate. I’m going to keep using it just because I like the texture and consistency of the product, and it’s another product I really enjoy applying to my skin. As for crow’s feet, I don’t have crow’s feet but would like to prevent them from forming. Hopefully it helps to fend these signs of aging away as much as possible. Dark under eye circles? No results there. It doesn’t help with under eye puffiness either. It’s good at deeply moisturizing the skin around the eyes.
CeraVe Eye Repair Eye Cream:
I’m currently using this eye cream (finishing it up). This is one of the eye creams that I decided to not continue using after I’m done with it. Even though it contains niacinamide, ceramides, and hyaluronic acid. It did absolutely nothing for my skin. It’s not even moisturizing. I think this is one of the most overhyped eye creams I’ve used. There’s nothing special about it. I thought it would work due to the ingredients and good reviews, but it didn’t deliver. I won’t buy again.
Cosrx Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream:
I picked up Cosrx Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream when it was on sale, lol. I honestly wouldn’t have bothered with it if it wasn’t, haha. But, surprisingly, I actually like this eye cream. It contains snail secretion filtrate, sunflower seed oil, niacinamide, sodium hyaluronate, adenosine, peptides, and much more. It feels creamy and sticky when dispensed from the pump bottle. I’m not a huge fan of the pump bottle since more product comes out of it than what is needed. It feels a little sticky, but it blends into the skin well. It absorbs in to the skin without feeling tacky. This eye cream is supposed to brighten the eye area and help diminish the appearance of dark under eye circles plus puffiness. From my experience, I’m on my second bottle, I find it moisturizing. I haven’t noticed any other benefits using this product. I don’t think it’s exactly a bad product. It’s truly moisturizing. I feel like the ingredients are pretty redundant considering other products I’m using, so I’m not sure if there’s going to be a repurchase.
The next two products are not eye creams, but I’ve been using them as one. They are…
RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Filler:
I’m not new to this product. I’ve used it on and off in the past. It works. Doesn’t work. I don’t know. I purchased it again to see if it’ll work again. lol. This product contains retinol and hyaluronic acid. It’s supposed to fill in creases and re-plump the skin. It’s also supposed to help to diminish the look of deep wrinkles. I tried it on my face and all it did was clog my pores. It made my skin oily and dirty. Maybe it’ll work on someone with drier skin. For someone like me, with oily skin, unfortunately, it just did bad things to my skin. So! I started using it as an eye cream and neck cream. It seems to work better as that, since it’s more moisturizing. Have I seen results? I really don’t know, but I have a couple of tubes to finish. lol.
GUERISSON 9 Complex Cream:
This is a face cream, but it works amazingly as an eye cream! Unfortunately, it didn’t work on my facial skin. I started to get clogged pores after using it. Even though it made my skin look more even, brighter, and moisturized, I couldn’t continue to use it because of the breakouts. As an eye cream, it’s wonderful! I also use it as a neck cream. The product contains horse oil/fat, shea butter, niacinamide, peptides, ceramide, and lots of other ingredients that are beneficial for the skin! It’s very moisturizing on the skin. No wonder why it didn’t work on my face. It makes me wonder if I’m being ripped off by companies when I purchase tiny, small eye cream products. Might as well drop some other eye cream products from my routine and use this. It works the same way. This cream also does a great job smoothing out my skin. It works to moisturize and leaves the skin feeling very soft and smooth. Most of my other eye creams do the same but costs much more for the amount of product! Just a thought! I feel like this product may be a keeper. We’ll see!
Those are my thoughts on my eye care products. Thank you for reading. 🙂 What are your favorite eye creams? Share!
After 2 Weeks of Using RoC Line Smoothing Daily Cleansing Pads!! My Results!!
I’ve used RoC Line Smoothing Daily Cleansing Pads for 2 weeks! I’m SO excited to share my experience and results with everyone! Let’s go! 🙌🏻
So I picked up a container of RoC Line Smoothing Daily Cleansing Pads. I love RoC products and so I thought I would give the RoC Line Smoothing Daily Cleansing Pads a try. I’ve gotten pretty good results from other products I use from this brand too. I was hoping these line smoothing cleansing pads would deliver results as well. Hopefully it’ll help to eliminate or at least diminish some fine lines and wrinkles. Also, sometimes I would get dry, flaky skin coming off of my face and nothing seems to remove them all. Just some are removed. I’m left with dead skin still hanging from my face. So I do have other exfoliating skin care products like Neutrogena Bright Boost Resurfacing Micro Polish, Benton PHA Peeling Gel, and some Skinfood facial scrubs that’s been sitting around for ages, lol. I’m really trying to use them up, but I just don’t have the interest to use them anymore. I’ll try to, haha! These are exfoliating products, but they don’t seem to remove all of the dead skin that’s on my face. They’ll remove some dry patches of dead skin here and there, but I want them all gone. I need a smooth blank canvas for my nighttime routine, so I can get an even layer of application on a freshly cleansed face. It gets pretty frustrating noticing that there’s still dead skin on my face after exfoliating too. I mean, shouldn’t they be all gone?
In other news, I’ll make an update on some of the exfoliating products mentioned.

When the seal is open, we have pre-soaked cotton pads. There’s a total of 28 pre-soaked cotton pads in this container. They are 3″ (7.63 cm) in diameter (stated on the container).
Here’s a single cotton bad. This is the textured side of the pad. It has tiny little exfoliating bumps on it to help remove dead skin cells. To make the skin feel softer and smoother.

My Experience & Results with RoC Line Smoothing Daily Cleansing Pads
These are called daily cleansing pads, but I didn’t use them on a daily basis. I didn’t feel like I had to. I only used them to remove dead skin from my face when I needed to. My skin peels or gets flaky about 2-3 times a week, so I only used the cleansing pads that amount of times. I’m not sure if that’s going to affect my results. I was hoping to diminish some fine lines and wrinkles but also remove some acne marks. So! Hopefully using it 2-3 times a week is more than enough. Each container only contains 28 cleansing pads. I just didn’t see the purpose of using cleansing pads every single day either. It’s seems pretty wasteful and expensive. I didn’t want to pay 10 bucks a month to cleanse my face when I already have a facial cleanser that lasts much longer than a month. But it’s really up to you what you want to do. I didn’t think it was necessary to use it daily.
The instructions says to gently massage the pad on wet skin. Check. That’s what I did. The cleansing pad would foam up nicely. It’s really simple and easy to move the cleansing pad over the facial skin. The cleansing pad smoothly transitions from one section of the face to the next effortlessly without tugging the skin. The instructions goes on to say to use the smooth side of the pad first for gentle cleansing all over the face, especially the delicate eye area. Use the textured side to remove oil, dirt, and other skin-dulling impurities. That’s also what I did. So the gentle side of the pad (non-textured, smooth side) is great for cleansing the face and eye area. All I do is move the pad over my face and eye area gently. It actually helped to remove some dead skin without pulling at the skin. Nice! That’s exactly what I wanted. The textured side is great too. It really does help to remove flaky skin and just overall dead skin that has a difficult time coming off. You can use these cleansing pads day and night, but I think that’s rather too much and way over my budget. If used day and night, the whole container would last 2 weeks. No thanks, I’ll stick to 2-3 times a week and only at night when my skin gets flaky.
So it looks like my results with these cleansing pads have been awesome. Each time I use them, my skin just looks so much softer, smoother, and pretty after cleansing my skin with them. Since I’ve been using these cleansing pads only a few times a week for 2 weeks, would this be considered 2 weeks? Hmmm! I have noticed a reduction in fine lines (kind of). What I noticed the most was an improvement in my skin texture. The texture of my skin just looks and feels smoother. It must be from removing all of that dead skin! So, after 2 weeks of using this product, I’m really glad I gave it a chance. I really like it. It works so much better compared to the other exfoliants that I have (mentioned earlier). If you have forgotten, here they are again — Neutrogena Bright Boost Resurfacing Micro Polish, Benton PHA Peeling Gel, and Skinfood facial scrubs. To wrap it up, I’m falling in love with RoC Line Smoothing Cleansing Pads!! They’re awesome at removing flaky, peeling skin. Let’s see what it can do in the next few weeks or so. A new updated review coming up soon!
I’m looking forward to the 4 week mark — Signs of photo-aging diminished. Uneven skin tone and dark spots diminished! If it happens…
