Skincare: Current Toners and Eye Cream

A lot of people have said they want to know more about my skincare in the comments of my latest posts.  So I'm giving what the people want! Today's post revolves around my toners and eye cream I have currently been using.  Toning is only of my favorite parts of cleansing, it also is one of the most important that should not be skipped!  Even after cleansing, your skin isn't completely clean and toning gets rid of any excess dirt, oil, makeup, you name it.  I use two different tones, one for morning and one for night.

The Elizabeth Arden Refining Toner Lotion ($19 $10.96) is the one I use for the morning.  I don't cleanse in the morning because I see it as unnecessary since I didn't get very dirty while sleeping, it also helps keep my skin balanced.  This is my second bottle of the Elizabeth Arden toner and I love it.  It is very gentle, perfect to get rid of morning oil.

The Shiseido Pureness Balancing Softener ($24.50) is my night time toner.  I found this a month ago and am obsessed! Not only is the packaging beautiful but the toner makes my skin incredibly soft.  It's also alcohol-free so it doesn't dry me out and is perfect for anyone with sensitive skin.

When it comes to eye cream I don't think you are ever too young to start using one.  If you are in your early 20s or late teens you won't need anti-aging properties yet, but definitely look for moisture and brightening powers.  This will keep your under eyes looking smooth and awake.  An added benefit is your concealer will go on much smoother and less likely to crease.  My current eye cream is the Elizabeth Arden Perpetual Moisture 24 Eye Cream ($30 $18.22).  It keeps my eyes very hydrated and smooth, and I have seen a decrease in the sliding of my concealer.  It claims to have brightening agents but I haven't noticed a difference in the month I have used it.  Even though it has worked well I don't think I will purchasing it when it's done.  I would rather shell out a few more bucks for something a little stronger.

Tip: Check your local TJ Maxx and Marshalls before shelling out big bucks for your skin care.  I get all my Elizabeth Arden there!  They also house other big brands like Shiseido, Retinol, theBalm, and others, but it does differ at each location.
