I love trying out new beauty products, especially ones that help improve the look and appearance of my skin.
I’m forth-something years old. I never gave much thought to the signs of aging that appear on you skin because my face appeared youthful. I attributed that to the amount of “fat” in my face. Being overweight I have extra fat all around my body – including my face. I felt that the fat helped to prevent wrinkles and sagging skin. Oh boy! Was I ever WRONG.
The older I get the more and more things I notice about my skin, most especially puffy eyes. The past few months I seem to wake up almost every morning with puffy eyes. I don’t know if it’s age, allergies or just something that happens. In any event I’m not overly keen about what I see in the morning.
Dark circles are also a problem for me. I blame lack of sleep on that one.
My husband has dark spots on his face which I can assume are age spots. I don’t have dark spots on my face (thankfully) but I wouldn’t be surprised if they started to appear as well.
Now that I am seeming signs of aging and other things that make me look “old,” haggard or simply “blah,” I’ve been on the look out for products to remedy things so that my skin looks healthy and radiant like it once did.
I recently had the opportunity to try out a really interesting product line that targets specific areas on your skin that might be a concern of yours – dark spots, dark circles and the dreaded puffy eyes. The new product line is called Solutions 24 CLINICAL. The products are from Anise Labs and are currently available at 2,000 Walmart stores nationwide. They will also be available at ULTA and major chain drugstores later on this year.
Solutions 24 CLINICAL “sticks” are made from the highest quality extracts and each are backed by proven and tested science.
Each stick focuses on a specific skin problem. Now there is no need to apply stuff all over your face when you only need to target one specific area. The product is also in a stick form (think mini deodorant tubes) which means there is less mess. Simply dial up the stick, gently swipe it across your skin to apply and your are done.
When applying the Solutions 24 CLINICAL stick to your eye area be extra careful not to apply it too rough because you can create more problems (wrinkles!). The eye area is very delicate so you must be as gentle as possible.
I received all three sticks to review. I have not used the dark spot product as of yet because I don’t have dark spots on my face. My husband does but I haven’t been able to convince him to use the product yet. You know how men are. If they think it’s “girly” they won’t try it. LOL!
The sticks are very small (they fit in the palm of your hand) which means they can go with you when you are on the go. You could easily tuck them inside your overnight bag or luggage when traveling. They also fit inside regular make up bags so you can keep them with your daily beauty products and make up.
The product applies easily and absorbs into your skin. You don’t have to worry about messy spots or a greasy look.
I’ve been using both the dark circles and puffy eye products. You need to use them twice daily in order to see improvement. I apply them in the morning after I wash my face and in the evening when I was my face again.
So far I have noticed an improvement in my puffy eyes. The bags under my eyes are improving from what I can see. They are clearly less noticable. I am hopeful that my eyes will not look puffy at all after a few more weeks using the products.
In some way I think this product provides instant relief when you apply it. It helps the puffiness go down a bit.
As for the dark circle corrector, I haven’t noticed as big of an improvement as I have with my puffy eyes, but I do believe I am noticing a difference.
I have a hard time taking facial pictures. I have to use my cellphone and they don’t always turn out as good. I especially have a hard time taking close up face photos.
Here is a photo (selfie) I took several months ago. You can clearly make out the bags under my eyes.
Here is a photo I took about two weeks ago (after I started using the Solutions 24 CLINICAL products). Although I am wearing making up you can see that the bags under my eyes are not as noticeable.
Since I’m far from a professional make up artist I don’t know how to skillfully hide my flaws. If I did I’d use make up to hide my double chin and sagging face. LOL! I do use concealer sometimes, which can cover dark spots but it can’t reduce the appearance of bags.
Even the area to the side of my eyes has improved a bit. Actually my cheeks/face look better too (I’m reviewing another facial product which could be the reason why – look for that review coming soon).
I am hopeful that with continued use I’ll notice even more improvements.
Many beauty products today cost an astronomical amount of money. Solutions 24 CLINICAL is less that $13 (per stick). Even for someone who lives on a budget I find that amount very “doable.”
