Creams, serums, balms, gels, masks, peels. I could go on for hours naming the types of products we spend hundreds of dollars on all just to keep our skin looking good. & while 22 might seem young to be using anti-aging type skin products, if there is any-one piece of advice from Glamour I’ve read that I will cherish like gold, is that it is never ever ever too early to start taking care of your skin.
If you’re anything like me, you’ve bought and tried dozens of products – never quite finding one that you really like or works like they claim. With all the different brands and product types out there its hard to know what it going to be right for you the first (or second, or third) time around you try.
Creme de la Mer was always my mothers occasional splurge when I was growing up. If it wasn’t so pricey, I’m certain that this would be her go-to forever creme & I’ve learned (almost) everything regarding skin care from my mother. I have yet to pull the trigger and drop $170 for a 1 oz bottle but my finger is definitely itching to do it. I have combination skin, mostly oily in my T-zone and then dry everywhere else, so it is moderately difficult to find a good moisturizing cream that gives me the moisture I need without making my skin break out. From everything that I have heard about this though, it is supposed to be the god sent creme that everyone with acne prone / dry skin swears buy.
On top of that, I have begun to take notice to the fine lines that have popped up around my eyes. So at 22 years old it goes without saying I’m scrambling to splurge on some quality eye cream. This Eye Concentrate is supposed to be the end of all others (similarly to all their other products). While I can NOT rationalize dropping $195 dollars any second before I’m finished school and back working full-time hours at home in San Diego, it is definitely on my “In the Future” splurge list.
Honestly, you just can’t go wrong with French beauty products; I mean have you seen the women of France?
