    I have started to notice laughter lines around my eyes :(

    Plus my skin isnt as fresh faced looking as it used to be, so im going to start useing some creams.

    I have never been a cleanse tone and mostiure girl, i have always used face wipes (quick and easy) but now i am willing to take a little tim eout and do this everyday.

    Can anyone recomend some face and eye creams? under my eyes are very dark so i would like something that will brighten the area too.

    I dont like the tan stuff, i dont do tans lol

    thanks

    Cant recomend on the eye creams, but if your complexion is looking a little dull, microdermabrasion kits are fab, as it strips off the outer layer of dead skin cells and promotes healthy skin tissue and circulation. Loreal do one for about £10 I think, Ihave a Roc one for about £30, they may seem expensive but they last ages, as a little goes a very long way. They leave your skin looking glowing and healthy and really soft. You just do it about twice a week.

    It certianly does, it basically in a non harsh way strips off everything so you get good new healthy skin cells on the surface, like a light acid peel, your skin feels taught but well mousturised after (they come with their own special moisturiser to apply afterwards) personly I would aviod the cheap ones you can pick up on places like ebay as some can be harsh and may damage your skin.

    can you use them during pregnancy?

    would i need to cleanse tone and moisture in between doing this treatment twice a week, also, does it hurt/burn?

    hi, i sell natural/organic/frangrance free products for health and beauty.
    cremes, shampoo, deoderant etc.
    I can send you a brochure if you like.
    did try to pm you but it wouldnt let me.

    parabens and sls found in most products has been found to be harmful and potentially cancer inducing.

    I use the garnier cream too, i agree with Imi it does leave your skin really soft!

    Have also used the loreal microdermabrasion kit before and wow ! its brilliant!! it leaves your skin soooo soft icouldnt stop touching my skin and saying wow !!!lmao little tip though , dont use it right before you plan to go out (give it an hour or so) as it leaves your skin bright red for a while !!!

    I have quite sensitive skin and I dont find it stings, it has a bit of a tingly feeling but nothing unpleasent, just feels like its actaully doing something if you know what I mean which I like.

    Other than that like hypnorm I use all natural products so as to aviod SLS and parabans. Iget my stuff from a fair trade wedsite http://www.akamuti.co.uk/Shea Butter.htm Which is the same place I got my ingerdience from to make noahs eczema cream. I love the fact that when you read the ingredience list you know what everything is, as its all natural oil and plants etc, not just a huge list of chemicals!

    i'm slowly trying to get away from anything containing sls and parabens.
    have a look at www.ecoflow.com and if you need info or would like a catalogue then please contact me.
