Real talk: I am not the best with keeping a consistent skincare routine.
In My 20's & Taking Good Skin For Granted
Apart from sunscreen, a lot of times I don’t even hit all of the “basics”– and I’ve always had pretty good skin, so I never really felt the “push” to go all in and truly commit myself to a full, consistent skin care regimen– that is, until recently…!
I had a “skin care epiphany” of sorts, and realized that while I may take my skin for granted now, in the same way, that I am so careful about eating lots of fruits and veggies both to keep me healthy now *and* protect against future health problems, I really need to be investing those few minutes a day into my skin so that not only can it be its best self now, but so that I can protect against premature signs of aging and skin damage in the future and be able to enjoy beautiful skin for many (many!) years to come.I actually even texted Lisa to tell her about this “epiphany” of mine (we just really like to talk about skin care at Simple Beauty Minerals, ok?!) and luckily, as she pointed out, with the proper care our skin truly can be beautiful at any age… so, all the more reason for us to give it that tender loving care now to set ourselves up for skin care success in the years to come!So, why all this talk about my new resolve to really step it up with my skin care routine?So YOU can learn right along with me!Well, to get the ball rolling (and as a little motivational “present” to myself, ha!) I picked up a Pure Bliss Eye Cremefrom the Simple Beauty Skin lineup to round out my daily skincare routine... And I fell in LOVE!
Pure Bliss Eye Creme– oh-so-silky smooth and moisturizing!
Are YOU using an eye cream?
I hadn’t used an eye creme in ages.When I was younger I had tried some of my stepmom's eye cream and itburned my eyes… yikes!That whole experience pretty much turned me off of putting any product near my delicate under eye skin.Still, I knew how important it was to moisturize and take proper care of the under eye area and I decided that now that I was committing myself to a full, honest to goodness skincare routine… it was time to give my under eye care another go.
Don't I look like a football player with it swiped under my eyes...?! (Haha!) You do NOT need to apply this much product– I don't! Only for this picture :)
Designed for Sensitive Skins
Thankfully, I knew that I had no need to fear– the whole Simple Beauty Skin lineup is incredibly safe and pure (just like all of our makeup!) and I could rest easy knowing all of the ingredients (they are listed both on the website, and right on the front of the label so it’s super easy to access if you are ever curious!).No burning eyes would be had this time around!
I like to apply my Pure Bliss Eye Creme both in the mornings, and at night before I go to sleep. Just pick up a little teeny-tiny bit using your clean ring finger, and then gently pat it on under my eye area. (If you get too much on your finger, pat it on your upper lip). Gently. No Rubbing. No Pulling.
Let it absorb all the way into your skin before applying your makeup.
Eat Your Oatmeal
I usually do this before I have breakfast, and then by the time I am done it’s all ready to go and I can finish up with my makeup routine!I have loved incorporating this step into my skincare routine– it is actually my favorite part.
Take Care of Yourself - Start NOW
It’s so relaxing, plus I love knowing that I am correctly caring for each part of my skin.Because you only need to use such a small amount of the Pure Bliss Eye Creme each time, it will definitely last you awhile– and let me tell you, it’s truly worth its weight in gold. For such a little jar, this product absolutely packs a major skin care punch!
More Than A Moisturizer
Not only does it help to smooth out the under eye area and address the eye area issues of skin wrinkling, loss of elasticity, puffiness, and hyperpigmentation– it works to reverse and prevent free-radical damage to boot!
The perfect Eye Creme ;)
Safe to say, I highly recommend adding it to your skincare routine if it’s not in there already.It can be tough to find products which truly work and yet are safe and gentle enough to use in your sensitive, delicate under eye area– and the Pure Bliss Eye Creme is one of those rare products that 100% has you covered on all fronts.
But hey, you don’t have to take my word for it!

Note from Lisa - This is a hot topic for me. It's never too early to start 'anti-aging'. (I prefer pro-aging. We all age, let's just own it.) You have control of how you will age, and girl, you can work it. Start with eye cream, but don't stop there. For starters, as Abby mentioned, Think SUNSCREEN. Every. Day.
