One of my resolutions this year was to get more sleep and be less stressed out. It’s February and I have failed on both accounts. If anything I have been getting less sleep lately and my stress level has remained high. And while I aim to turn that around for the rest of the year the sheer exhaustion has already taken a toll on my face. My skin is dull and my eyes are puffy and dark.
So I decided as I continue to work on distressing my life that I was going to work on not looking so stressed out. I began to use Bare Escentuals RareMinerals™ Active Triple Treatment Eye Cream ($28, sephora.com). This groundbreaking treatment was designed to minimize the look of fine lines, restore firmness, and reduce puffiness around the eye area. RareMinerals Eye Cream is an advanced, ophthalmologist- and dermatologist-tested age fighter that visibly smoothes fine lines and wrinkles, boosts firmness and brightens skin in the delicate eye area. Infused with the RareMinerals ActiveSoil Complex, it harnesses mineral electrolytes and marine peptides to rejuvenate skin around the eyes instantly and over time.
I wasn’t so sure a mineral product could really help reduce puffiness and soften lines but it was worth a try. I am happy to report that RareMinerals made me a believer. The gentle non-greasy cream goes on so smoothly and sinks in very fast. I love how easy and effective the cream is. It glides on and my skin was never sticky. Within a week my skin looked and felt younger and sexier.
And because it contains no synthetic dyes, fragrances, parabens or petrochemicals, I am fulfilling another one of my resolutions. My resolution to buy more responsible living products. One thing less to stress over.
