You'll want to swipe right on this eye cream
So Botox and I have been on “a break” for about six months now, and while I’m sure we’ll get back together eventually, I’m pretty OK flying solo for the time being. I have my moments (especially when my husband sees me make facial expressions that have been kept under wraps for YEARS with regular injections), but I’m surprisingly comfortable with the mobile skin I’m in. Our split has definitely prompted me to up my anti-aging skincare efforts in the form of derm-grade products, and Alastin’s Restorative Eye Treatment has been doing an amazing job at preventing my crow’s feet from flying out of control.
Rich and scent-free, this cream is formulated to tackle all the major eye-area concerns, including fine lines, puffiness, dark circles and skin firmness (or lack thereof).
