It's Simple!!!

Yes, it really is Simple! Well, that is the brand of new skincare products that I decided to try. I had been seeing them everywhere, but wasn't really to sure about them. I got the Moisturizing Facial Wash, the Soothing Eye Balm, and the Cleansing Facial Wipes. First, I want to talk about the Moisturizing Facial Wash. I have tried many kinds and just never really found one that really made me feel like it made a difference. With this one though I immediately liked the way my skin felt. I have some areas that are drier than others and this helped it to balance out. 

Second, I tried the Cleansing Facial Wipes. I have never had any luck whatsoever with these kinds of wipes. I always use them to take my makeup off only to be disappointed by the makeup left behind. These wipes, however, were completely different. It got all of my makeup off and I loved the fresh feeling that I had when I was done. It definitely made me one happy girl.
Finally, the last product I tried is my new best friend. I had been noticing that my left eyelid was really puffy from the lack of sleep I have been experiencing. I decided to give the Soothing Eye Balm a whirl. I used it and it felt kind of cool and weird. Please note if you buy this you pat it into your skin. You DON'T rub it in. Anyway, I didn't expect a huge difference or anything. I really wasn't even sure I would notice anything. When I checked in the mirror later I was literally freaking out. My eyelids were the exact same. It took ALL of the puffiness out of my one eyelid. Yep, I am in love, love, love!

My first review....

I was out getting a few things at the store when I stumbled across something that looked like a definite must try. My youngest has not been sleeping that great lately so, I have definitely had dark circles around my eyes and they have felt very tired. I bought some Aveeno Smart Essentials Anti-Fatigue Eye Treatment. Here is what the description says:

Great, healthy looking skin begins with a refreshed outlook. Lack of sleep, free-radicals and a hectic lifestyle can result in dark circles and puffiness. Formulated with antioxidant Southernwood extract,
SMART ESSENTIALS™ Anti-Fatigue Eye Treatment hydrates and infuses under eyes with vitamins and antioxidants so you'll look and feel replenished. Smart skincare that knows what your skin needs and what it doesn't because:

It keeps the good in:
  • Infuses your delicate under-eye skin with antioxidant Southernwood extract and vitamins A, C & E in a formula to combat dark circles.
  • Hydrates to help immediately brighten the eye area.
And the bad out:
  • De-puffs under eye area by massaging with a cooling roller-ball.
Wow, after trying this I couldn't believe this little roll-on could make me feel so awake. My eyes felt awake and I liked the way it felt. I decided to tell my husband about it and he even decided to try it. He agreed that it was awesome and really worked. I am definitely going to try out some more of the Smart Essentials products.

It's about time!

I took a break from blogging, but I have decided to start blogging again. This time I want to blog about life, books, and review products. I think that would appeal to the masses. Hope you will stick around for this new venture. I am looking forward to taking the time to talk about things that interest a lot of people.

So, to start off there is a chance to review a Diamond Candle and I am hoping to get that chance. You can go here if you blog and try to get a chance as well!!
