The Things I Do For You People

I got this free trial in the mail.
It's name: Eyepothesis

It's claim: A 20-minute eye lift -
That would tone and firm, smooth and moisturize, and most importantly, tighten and lighten.

How? With the help of the anti-wrinkle eye patches with collagen boost.

Let's see.

Before you scroll down, remember ... it's allergy season, people. I'm not well today. That's the truth. I'm not just making it up as an excuse for my horrid appearance. I'm not breathing and light-headed. Puffiness is inevitable, along with messy hair and the look that follows a day of staying home trying to nurse myself to good health so that I can work tomorrow.

Remember that.

Here's me before. (It takes some kind of brave woman to post pics like this. Seriously.)

Before:
One hour with the eye patches.
After:
Yeah ... it's pretty much the same.

In real life though, under my eyes was a lot smoother and lighter (says Beau). The box says you should do this 2-3 times a week. Who has time for that? And, it's not cheap. Think I'll just stick with my wide array of eye creams in my bedside table, and lots of concealer.

I agree with Beau. Stay with the tried and true regimen you have now. I wish I looked as good as you when my allergies are flaring up. You ARE brave to post the pics, even though you look great!

Seriously!!! I mean, all these beauty products take way too much time. Who HAS that time???

BTW, I showed my hubby your hubby's eyebrow video, and he died out laughing. I was like, "This is sooo something you would do." LOL!!

You look fine and I hope you feel better soon! As my hubby tells my girls, you only paint the barn if it needs it, and you definitely don't! Have a great day.

I see a difference. I really do. Under your eyes do seem smoother. I hope you feel better soon. If it makes you feel better, Hubs hijacked my blog today for my b-day. It was very sweet but he kept saying things like I was old!!! Shudder....

Oh, girl, you look great. Before and after. :-)

Concealer is a girl's best friend.

2-3 times a week? I'm with you - I don't have time for that! I cannot live without my concealer, though.

You are looking mighty fine - I wouldn't have known you were fighting off allergies.

it cracks me up the things they come up with......who has 3 hours a week to wear those? plus you are stuck to your house b/c you certainly won't go out in them.....of course maybe then the laundry would get done and some cleaning....hmmmmmm....maybe I should try them!!!!

If I win the lottery (which would probably be easier if I played it), THEN I'd maybe have time to sit around 3 times a week like that. Until then, nah...not happening. Besides, I think you look great without doing that - allergies and all. :)

OK, if you will post your makeup-less self, I will admit something that I have NEVER told anyone.

Bior strips fascinate me. The after, with the little pore forest on the strip? I find that amazing. Gross, but amazing.

So see what you started with this post? Confession is good for the soul.

You can spend a lot of money on all that stuff! And I wonder if even 1% of it even comes close to workin' like they say. But I do have to say Clinique has really good stuff, pricey too.

jennifer said...

I love concealer. It's a life saver.

this post is cracking me up!
I got some White Strips for my birthday, and after reading the package, I'm wondering when I'm going to have time to spend 30 minutes a day whitening my teeth!!!

WHAT?!?

Your eyes look good! My circles are BLACK and my eyes are so puffy in the AM that I only have slits. Maybe I should try your eye cream!
