One of my greatest joys is when I discover that must-have product. I love the process of sifting through different brands and discerning what really works for me and then sharing that information with others. Whether it’s health and beauty, home, fashion, I just love a great find, and I love it even more at a great price.
Recently, I was in search of an under eye cream. If you’ve shopped the department stores and drug stores you know there is no shortage of creams all claiming to march back the years of time on your face. I’ve tried everything from the very expensive, which works but is tough on the pocket-book, to the very inexpensive and quite effective. This brings me to my latest love. I had been having trouble sleeping and the lack of sleep was showing up under my eyes in the form of dark circles and bags.
With a small budget, I headed to my neighborhood Walgreens. Scouring the shelves my eyes landed on a small white jar of Merlot Grape Seed Eye Cream. It’s well known that there are many benefits of using grape seed oil on the skin.
There are compounds in the grape seed that contains anti – inflammatory properties which helps to soothe and nourish the skin. It also has substances like linoleic acid which helps to firm the skin. I decided to give this cream a try. At just $13.99, I felt I really had little to lose. The results were incredible and in a very short period of time. I noticed my under eye bags had begun to smooth out and the skin under my eyes became firm. With daily use, even my dark circles have diminished. Needless to say this cream has become one of my must have skin care staples.
Try it out for yourself and let us know what you think.
As always, when trying new products on the skin, conduct a skin patch test before using.
