Love The Texture And It Smells Great!
My Thoughts On The Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask

I loved the coolness of the mask. In the winter months it is important that we keep it cool, which is the opposite of what we want to do. Unfortunately, hot water can wash away the skin's natural oils, leaving us with those dry, itchy area’s. This mask helped with some of the dryness I get on my checks.  Plus,  I noticed after using this that is gave me a lovely radiant and dewy look, which is something I love!

The Second Product Is The TRUE GLOW EYE CREAM.

Our eyes are an important feature of our face and having the skin around the eyes looking dull, dry and flaky can certain age us quickly!  But using a product that can help to repair that dull area by locking in moisture, can give us back that healthy look.

The True Glow Eye Cream, is an antioxidant rich eye cream that’s goal is to help lock in moisture, repair and tighten skin for a youthful looking glow around the eye area.

Below you will find some of the key ingredients in this eye cream as well how each one is targeted to help that those dull, aging eyes.

Astaxanthin: A potent antioxidant that increases moisture levels, smooths fine line and wrinkles, and restores elasticity to the skin.

Resistem: Natural Plant Stem Cells repair and protect the skin from harsh environmental pollutants and stress-related aging.

Vitamin C: Leaves the skin smooth and visibly brighter for a well-rested and bright-eyed look.

Organic Rosehip Oil: Provides intense hydration to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Arnica: A key anti-inflammatory agent to the healing process that works to diminish the appearance of dark circles.


My eye area is a concern of mine.  Unfortunately, as we get older, this skin dries out much faster. And because it is thinner than the other regions on our face, if we don’t treat it properly, we can end up with sagginess and bags, which leads to wrinkles!  For this reason is it important for me to treat the eye area gently with a product like the True Glow Eye Cream.

While I haven’t seen my wrinkles go away, I have noticed that the skin looks better from the moisture I’m adding to it. Also, I’m a big fan of products with Vitamin C in them, as it helps to brighten the under eye area.  Since I’ve been only using this product for a few weeks, I’m going to keep using it to see if I get some more improvement.

When it comes to applying eye cream, you want to make sure that you use it gently.  You don’t want to be pulling the area. Therefore, it is essential to place a little of the True Glow Eye Cream onto your ring finger and gently dab it around the eye, do not rub.  Lastly, you want to sure you are applying a small amount of product. Too much can do the opposite and irritate your eyes, giving you some puffiness, which is something we want to avoid!

So there you have it beauties, two more ways to conquer that dry winter skin!

Have you tried these products, if so let me know your thoughts.  Especially the eye cream!
