I know it's allergy season because my mirror told me, and told me even before I knew sinus. One morning about a week ago I looked into the mirror and saw two large, soft pillows under my eyes that says, "Congratulations, Karen! You're a hot mess."
When allergies cause springs, itchy and swollen, I usually switch to a different de-puff some tricks, such as cold compress, cold tea bags and spoons, but I also tried to open the eyes (as much as possible, haha!) For new things ,
Although not a new product, First Aid Beauty Detox Eye Roller Intense Therapy ($ 24) is new to me. This roller ball moisturizing fluid similar to the beloved Clinique All About Eyes Serum ($ 26). Such as serum Clinique, contains caffeine (which, applied, may constrict blood vessels) and antioxidants to (allegedly) reduces the appearance of dark circles, puffiness and fine lines.
Unfortunately, there are other things they have in common: they are expensive.
Both products also make cold sensation on the skin, like a refreshing splash of water. I think the version of Clinique win in the department of hydration, but Detox work faster and also contains illuminating mica, which, if nothing else, illuminating the area under the eyes bright with some shimmer, so that at least looks brighter. Every little bit helps, especially when allergies and insomnia doubles team of my eyes.
I do not really expect Detox to defeat (or even substantially improve) my dark circles because methinks they are past the point of no return, but not dramatically lowered my swollen eyes. The extra brightening can help in the department of dark circles boys.
