Adovia Mineral Eye Gel Review

The last months have taken a toll on the family, making sleep almost impossible to come by.

With our move coming up in two months and just losing my job, I’ve been staying up until 12-1am, wasting time looking at rentals in the area, possible jobs and sorting through different things. It’s all a fairly long process.

Last week I looked in the mirror and honestly, I felt like a raccoon. My eyes looked swollen and saggy–allergy eyes, I suppose you could call them. It was horrible!

I kept hoping that sleep would make the bags go away, but after a couple days, I needed to do something else because I had a job interview. You can’t go to a job interview looking like you are on drugs! Not okay! So, I pulled out the Adovia Mineral Eye Gel and slapped some on, praying that it do something to make them shrink, but not expecting anything at all. Not expecting anything, means I didn’t take pictures–dur! But, my results were unbelievable! I put it on again that night, hoping that I would wake up and look like a Victoria Secret model.

After Soap

As you can tell, that definitely didn’t happen. Can’t go from this to that overnight. But, I was actually amazing at the results that I did get.

The following morning, I did not wake up looking like I had slept with makeup on.

I used the mineral eye gel for a couple more days and I have my face back! 

Now, before you go grab yourself some to slap on your face, I want to let you know to watch how you apply it. When I put it on, I wasn’t really thinking about it and I got it snapshot-196too close to my eye. It gave me a “hovering irritation” feel and I wiped most of it away, but I got some on my eyelashes and some got in my eye. Not comfortable!

I also advice, like most products you put around your eye, use your ring finger and do not put a lot of pressure on your face.

Other than that, get out there and give it a try! Let me know how it works for you! And what other “eye bag reducing products” you use.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Eyelash Makeover–Beauty Products

I had the chance to try out Lovely Lashes Eyelash Curler and Covergirl’s 2-in-1 mascara.

First up, Lovely Lashes Eyelash Curler. It’s a great product and an amazing deal! I got two of the plastic inserts that help protect your eyelash while curling it.

The problem I ran into is that, well first off, I am out of practice. I was never good with eyelash curlers. I seemed to always pinch my eyelid and I don’t know if I don’t have enough eyelashes or what, but it was a little tricky for me. I know I have smaller eyes, so it made it hard getting the curler to actually fit all my eyelashes.  Continue reading “Eyelash Makeover–Beauty Products”
