Continued: Skin Care Products I Stopped Using
I made a list of skin care products I stopped using in a previous post. Here’s another post on skin care products that I stopped using. A bunch more skin care products popped up out of nowhere. Well, I just noticed them. haha. Enjoy! 😊
Go here for my first list of products that I stopped using! 👈🏻
The INKEY List Retinol Eye Cream
I’m almost done with this retinol eye cream from The INKEY List. I must say, once I finish the tube, I’m officially done with it. I wish I could say that it has done miracles to my eye area, but I have yet seen anything after months of using it. I opened a new tube of this product in January. It’s the end of May now. This is my third purchase of this product. I think that should be more than enough to see some results. And that’s not what I’m getting. So, it didn’t live up to what it claims to do. I think I’m over it. There are better retinol eye creams out there. This one isn’t for me. I feel like it’s just another useless product in my routine. I’m really just going through the motions using it up.
CeraVe Eye Repair Cream
CeraVe is a very popular skin care brand due to its ingredients (ceramides, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide), and it’s an affordable drugstore brand with those particular ingredients. But I’ve used CeraVe for so many years and was never impressed by any of their products. Does anyone feel the same way? Even before it became super popular, it was just not that great to me. The CeraVe Eye Repair Cream did nothing for my under eyes. It didn’t help moisturize it either. If you’re looking for a good eye cream that moisturizes, this isn’t it. It didn’t help with fine lines and wrinkles. It didn’t help with dark under eye circles either. I feel like I just wasted my money on this eye cream when it works the same as the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream. I’m not going to purchase it again. It’s such a below average product with overhyped ratings.
On to CeraVe Moisturizing Cream…
CeraVe Moisturizing Cream
It’s been a drag trying to finish this product up. Some days I take a huge chunk of the product to speed up the process, lol. This moisturizing cream isn’t that moisturizing. It leaves a weird film behind on the skin, and I haven’t noticed an increase in moisture in my skin (body). I always need to follow up with another truly moisturizing product to keep my skin moisturized. This is another overhyped CeraVe skin care product. You got it, I won’t purchase again, lol.
Pure Horse Oil
I’ve been using 100% Pure Horse Oil for the past months. I tried using it on my face and that didn’t work out. It clogged my pores. *sigh* I haven’t found an oil that works on my reactive skin. This one went out real quick. I kept using it to moisturizing my neck and chest. I have to use it for something, right? lol. Well, after several months of using it, no results. I don’t think it has helped with anything or done anything for my skin. I prefer GUERISSON 9 Complex Cream instead, but it’s a cream that’s too heavy and rich for my face. It makes a really nice neck/chest cream though. Sometimes I use it as an eye cream too. Works way better at moisturizing compared to the other eye creams I’ve listed in this post — CeraVe Eye Repair Cream and The INKEY List Retinol Eye Cream. The Horse Oil goes on my not to buy list. I’m over it.
That’s all I can think of right now. I feel like I have WAY MORE skin care products to share. I’m sure I’ll encounter them along the way. hahahaha! 🙃 Thank you for reading! 😊
Unboxing a NEW The INKEY List Retinol Eye Cream! 😊
My order arrived today!! I didn’t think I would keep The INKEY List Retinol Eye Cream in my skin care routine, but I guess I am (for now)! 😁 Why not?!! I’ve been using it for ages now. Well, it feels like ages. It’s like a staple in my routine by now. So I’m officially on my third tube of this eye cream. Hopefully I’ll see results this time. haha. HOPEFULLY!! Along with my order, I received some samples too. They are GLAMGLOW BRIGHTEYES Illuminating Anti-Fatigue Eye Cream and Wishful Honey Balm Jelly Moisturizer. I’ll get to trying them out some time or whenever I remember to, lol. Now back to the retinol eye cream! Let’s unbox it! 🙂
So I did a review on this eye cream not too long ago. If you missed it, click right here. I also did a review on another eye cream from the same brand too. It’s THE INKEY List Caffeine Eye Cream <<< CLICK!!
Here’s my new retinol eye cream taken out of the box. It looks the same like it did before. No changes in packaging from what I’ve seen. Just the plain ol’ black and white coloring and design. So about the packaging, it looks worn out for some reason. It feels flimsy and rather cheap. I’ve noticed this about this brand. It’s not the most aesthetically pleasing box and packaging from a brand. But that’s OK. I guess. ha.
This is what the retinol eye cream tube looks like. It’s not a sealed product. Just twist open the cap and use immediately. I wish it was sealed…
Here’s a swatch of the product. It’s a white-yellowish cream. This is my first time dispensing my brand new retinol eye cream. Very, very exciting! Even though I know exactly what to expect! LOL. It’s just oh so fresh and brand new!
Now…inside of the box. It explains the different kinds of eye creams they have. I’ve only used the retinol eye cream and caffeine eye cream. Maybe one day I’ll try the brighten-i eye cream. I’ve seen it, but I haven’t felt the need to try it out yet. I’m a little obsessed with kbeauty eye creams at the moment. They seem to work better, and they’re more affordable long term. They last so much longer too. I like them a lot more. And from the results (which is very little) I’ve achieved with the retinol eye cream and caffeine eye cream, I’m not sure what to think of the brighten-i eye cream. It’s whatever at the moment, lol. Maybe some time in the near future if I feel like it, I’ll pick one up.
It goes on to explain how long to see results too. Um, yeah, after two tubes and going on the third. I’m pretty sure I’m supposed to see results by now. haha. And I only use a tiny pea-size for both eyes. Hmmm! It’s been WAYYYYY OVER 6 weeks. 😮💨 Well! Let’s see if the third one is a charm! hehe! ✨ Also, I haven’t had any irritation or sensitivity to this product. Yay? Yes, yay. 🙃 But it is a slow release formula to help avoid irritation. FYI, this retinol eye cream is 3% vitalease stabilized retinol compound. That doesn’t mean 3% retinol. It’s only 0.09% retinol. It’s a low concentration retinol product. That may be the reason why I’m not seeing much results.
BUT! I have hope! 🤞🏻
So I’m looking forward to gorgeous eyes in the next upcoming weeks or months!!! Let’s see what this retinol eye cream can do this time around. 😊 An updated review coming up soon!
