Skincare is such an intimate and complicated thing! There are so many items out there, and so hard to finally find that one product that works – and when you finally get used to it, it either gets discontinued or the formulation changes. So not fun.
But these are also opportunities to explore and find out what else is out there. Imagine my joy when I discovered two Estee Lauder skincare products that actually worked for me (and still do).
A bit of background on my skin:
I don’t get serious eye bags or dark circles, save for the occasional late night or stressful period. I have oily and sensitive skin, and my face reacts horribly to anything that contains alcohol (in all its forms, be it denatured alcohol or benzyl alcohol). However, the skin around my eyes can take alcohol with no problems.
Because of this sensitivity, I will try just about any product without alcohol and so far this strategy has worked!
