GREEN TEA BAGS = HOLY GRAIL FOR EYE PUFFINESS. I make tea with 2 bags every morning, freeze the bags for about 15 minutes, and then leave them on my eyes for 10 minutes. I have absolutely HORRIBLE puffiness and this just diminishes that so fricken well. My eyes looks so wide and rested afterwards, and my horrible horrible eye bags are mostly diminished.
FDGUSHFGJDS BEST THING EVER. I cleanse with oatmeal every day and every night. my acne is steadily diminishing. this cleansing method gets very steady, clear results! which is great because I'm very impatient. I am SO GLAD that this is working so well because my acne is quite bad and i was considering getting those 60 dollar acne treatments that load chemicals onto your face. this oatmeal genuinely nourishes and heals your face from acne. it's so wonderful. To know how oatmeal cleansing is done, search "Bubz beauty oatmeal cleansing", and find her blog post about it. you basically use the oatmeal as a face soap, day and night. wet a handful of oats, and rub it all over your face. the oats will leave a silky residue on your face. Then you wash that off and pat your face dry. Immediately after you have cleansed, all of your pimples will look more red than usual, but that fades within 5 minutes. This cleansing method gives me such clear results. Also, I have dry skin, so those worried about this drying out your skin, it only drys it out a little tiny bit! If your trully concerned, just put a llittle moisturizer on afterwards and you'll be fine. Most acne treatments dry out skin A LOT. This one only dries you out a tiny bit, and it is well worth the results.
I actually didn't like using green tea as a toner at all. The reason I put five stars is because green tea works absolute WONDERS for my eye bags. First I'll talk about why I don't like this as a toner: -I really don't see the point of toners in the first place but decided to try this anyway since i had green tea in my house -after I cleansed my face (with oatmeal btw. WORKS WONDERS FOR ACNE), I took a green tea bag that I had made tea with already, and just wiped it all over my face. -It felt strange, and tightening, and ended up really drying out and irritating my skin. -also, if you don't apply it carefully, you'll get clumps of green gunk in some places. o.0 so I guess this toner is best for people with more oily skin? idk. I just didn't like it because it dryed out my already dry skin, and didn't really help my acne. but anways, GREEN TEA BAGS ARE MY HOLY GRAIL FOR PUFFINESS. what I do every morning is I use two tea bags to make some tea and then freeze the tea bags for about 15 minutes. Then, I lay down with my head propped up a little, and I place the tea bags on my eyes. I leave them on my eyes for 10 minutes. listening to music can help keep track of time because each song is about 3-4 minutes so I usually listen to about 3 songs and then take the tea bags off. I have the worst bag problem that I have ever seen on anyone my age, and every time i do this tea bag treatment, my eyes are completely TRANSFORMED. best thing ever. I have tried eye creams for my bags and they didn't do shit. I have also tried black tea. it worked quite well but not nearly as well as the green tea <3.
Concealers -Giorgio Armani - high precision retouch

I....really didn't like this. I had such high hopes...but really....this did nothing for me. -the coverage was not good at all. my dark circles showed right through this concealer. -the concealer is very liquidy and kind of shiny, which has a way of making my bags look even worse. -I have trouble getting this concealer to go where I want it to because the liquid builds up too much on the applicator, and this concealer is just overall really hard to apply. -It's very good at not looking cakey, but that's just because it's not thick enough to even cover the dark circles in the first place. I am just so confused right now. I don't understand why a product with such amazing reviews worked so crappily for me.... :/
I really just don't understand why in the world this concealer is getting so much hate. This concealer works really well for me. I got it in light golden, and the yellowish tone helps neutralize the purple of my dark circles. the coverage is thick, and there is no need to pile it on. In fact, if you do put too much on, it is very prone to looking cakey. Many people have complained about the cakiness, but there is a very easy way to make sure it doesn't cake up: -use a primer underneath it -be careful not to use too much. I have tried Giorgio Armani high precision retouch, which is the highest rated concealer on this site, and /this/ concealer works WAY better than that one. the giorgio concealer is much less prone to cakiness, but the coverage isn't good at all imo, and it's too liquidy and shiny. I kind of feel like it made my eye bags look even worse somehow...I just didn't like it. what you guys have to realize is that this concealer is very heavy duty, so you have to use it very carefully in order to prevent cakiness. however, I gave it 4 rather than 5 stars because while it does give me really great coverage, there is still a faint tint of pinkish purple left. I will probably try bobbi brown's corrector next. People really rave about it.
