I have to say that I love collecting skin care samples and rarely do I purchase from websites that don't offer free samples. Samples is my way of trying out the product before I purchase the full size, which we all know can become quite expensive especially if the product doesn't work for us. I'm a bit of a stickler when it comes to organization and I like being able to find things when I need them. This is my way of organizing my samples, I use plastic ziploc bags and tape labels onto them by categories. I show this all to you in the video below and I also gave you a mini tour of my makeup and filming area as well.

This might be hard to believe but this is the second eye cream that I have ever bought. I have been using eye cream samples for the last 20yrs or maybe longer so I never had to actually purchase any. The samples that I have are very high end and these little tubes last for quite awhile too. So on with this product review. I purchased this Neocutis Lumiere Bio-restorative Eye Cream on recommendation from my Plastic Surgeon right after I was released from his care after I had my Blepharoplasty. I was hoping that it would preform some sort of miracle and shrink the tiny scar above my right eye.... well to no avail the scar is still there.

I was very honored to receive a full tube of the most talked about Serum on the market today Elite Serum. If you are not familiar with Elite Serum, then allow me to introduce it to you.
I begin using it all over my face and neck because the skin in those areas are beginning to loosen. I'm in my mid 50's and my skin has never looked so amazing!

I purchased a pair of glasses from GlassesShop online and i'm very pleased with my entire experience. I wasn't sure what I wanted so I chose a pair of inexpensive frames that was $19.95 called Trussville.
My prescription calls for double vision lens or bifocals so I ordered the "durable lens with a line plus anti-reflective to combat the glare. The total for the lenses was $22.12. I had a coupon code to save $5, so the total of my order with shipping was $46.80.

I made a 2 minute video on how the Clear Care works, it cleans the most difficult residue and protein buildup on contacts and leaves them so clear it's amazing. Prior to using Clear Care, I was having the hardest time cleaning my contacts for some reason. I just couldn't get the buildup off and I would spent a lot of time rubbing.

I was born with Coloboma. Coloboma is a rare genetic condition of the Iris where it does not close up before birth. One out of 10,000 children are born with this condition.... I was one of them. As a result, I have very blurred vision, ptosis, astigmatism and limited peripheral vision in this eye which is my right eye. Also, the Retina failed to close all the way in this eys so I had laser eye surgery at 25yrs of age to close up the gap in my Retina.

I wanted to share one of my favorite primers for the eyes that I stumbled upon and come to love. To be honest, I have hooded eyelids due to aging, but I realized there's certain eye primers that are so matte and sticky that they actually help my eyelids stay up.
Guerlain's Eye Primer is one of those really matte sticky primers that perks up my lids and keeps them from sagging, so now this has become my everyday eye primer for now.

I saw a few YT videos where this was used to apply glitter with absolutely no fallout so I decided to buy it for myself and see how it worked for me. I'm amazed at how smooth this glides on over the eye shadows without loosing any pigmentation and even more amazed at how the glitters sticks to my shadows. I have to say that I didn't experience any fallout and I was totally happy with the final results.

When it comes to my face, I only trust Shiseido. I've been using Shiseido's skin care products for about 25yrs now and i'm absolutely 100% certain that my skin is anti-aging and anti-wrinkle because of my diligence. I'm very particular about what goes around my eyes and this eye cream comes highly recommended. Mind you it's not cheap and it cost about $50 but it last about six month.
