TWO OPTIONS THAT WILL OBLITERATE YOUR PUFFY DARK CIRCLES:
A few years ago I was hanging out with a couple of my friends and we started talking about the annoyance of under eye bags when one of my good friends said she had a secret for getting completely rid of hers.
She said she’d had Belotero injected at the top of her cheek and it completely got rid of her bags. We all had to feel her cheeks and were amazed by the results. I wanted to try it so bad but it was pretty expensive (about $400) there wasn’t really anyway I was going to be able to afford it.
It always stayed in the back of my mind as something I wanted to try sometime and so I started saving for it a few months ago and finally had it done. I went to my friend Allie Blazzard in St. George , because she knows what she’s doing and does a beautiful job. She doesn’t go overboard. I loved that she didn’t pressure me to do any other procedures and that she was very clear on exactly what she was doing, what it would cost and how long it would last. I felt very comfortable in her office.
I have been absolutely amazed by the results. Even on my roughest nights sleep can’t see the bags, it’s wondeful. It’s one of those things that I never knew about and then once someone told me I started seeing it everywhere and suddenly understood why celebs never seemed have puffy bags!
Here’s the thing though,
The last thing I want to do is suggest that anyone “needs” or “should have” any thing like this.
It’s completely a personal choice that is not right for everyone.
The line between vanity and self improvement or expression can be tricky and is different for each person. My line is less about exactly what I’m doing and more about why I’m doing it and where my priorities are. If I’m doing it to because I think it will give me self esteem I’m barking up the wrong tree but if I’m doing it because I like the way my face looks without baggy under eyes and now I won’t have to think about them again for another 9 months then I don’t worry too much.
I figure whether you agree or not you can always be sure that I’ll tell you the truth.
You’ll never need an ultrasound to prove what’s real on me and what isn’t:)
I’ve also discovered (thanks to Allie) another amazing gem that is a less expensive and invasive option:
How about this: an eye cream that ACTUALLY DOES WHAT IT SAYS IT DOES!
I’ve used a ton of different things through the years to attack bags and dark circles and nothing made a huge impact. I sort of decided that eye creams are just not capable of such a thing until I found this. I don’t go to bed without it and when I do, I notice a they are darker and dryer and before I had the Belotero I noticed a big difference on the puffies too.
It’s not super cheap but it’s concentrated so you only use a tiny amount and it will last forever. I’ve had mine for a couple months and haven’t even made a dent in it.
IIID FOUNDATION UPDATE: I cannot believe that I have already sold out of the Mediums again! I’m so excited but really bummed for anyone who wanted it and couldn’t get it! This next shipment is probably going to take a little longer than the last one because of some changes I’m making (adding colors and making the darker and light shade more comparable in size etc.) I’ll keep you updated on all of that!
