Annie Reviews: Ren Keep Young And Beautiful Anti Aging Eye Cream

It's a well known fact that our eyes are the first place we start to show signs of aging. As someone in my late 20's with factors like stress and sleep deprivation working against my favor, I can definitely vouch for that. On top of that, I've always dealt with a very dry and dark undereye area. Clearly I need a very serious under eye cream. As always, I look for products that contain natural and gentle ingredients. When natural product heavy hitter Ren released an eye cream, I couldn't wait to try it!

Ren products aren't absurdly expensive, but they aren't cheap either. This 0.5 ounce tube is $40. Thankfully, a little bit goes a long way. I find that half a pump gives me more than enough eye cream to moisturize my entire eye area.

At first I was worried that this product was not hydrating enough and it seemed like my fine lines were getting even worse! I almost came on here to write a negative review!

My Favorite Holiday Songs

via Everyday Starlet

Oh the holidays. It's the time of year we are all busy cooking and entertaining and dressing to the nines. The lights go up and store windows are decorated. With all that's going on, it wouldn't quite be the holidays without the music. I know right after Thanksgiving, my local music stations begin playing those delightful tunes that bring joy, cheer, and reflection into our lives. So now I am happily tuning in and hearing covers and originals of the best holiday songs. Here's a holiday playlist of my favorite ones. Listen, enjoy, and bring in that holiday spirit.

LEAH'S TOP 5

1. Wham - Last Christmas

This is my favorite and definitely a holiday staple! Any covers or takes on this classic just don't seem to live up to Wham's original version.

via I Love Wildfox

I don't really have problems getting to sleep very often, but sometimes after a busy day I find myself lying awake in bed for about an hour before sleep. I think we've all been there—it's like we're too tired to even get to sleep! I recently read about this very helpful tip on Byrdie about falling asleep in under a minute and I tried it last night. I can't believe it works.

Allison's London & Paris Bucket List

via 12 Hrs

While I am always daydreaming about hitting the road and traveling, I'm actually not much of a wanderer. Working a full-time job in retail and online doesn't give me a lot of spare time, and at the end of the day I'm content just curling up with my boyfriend, dog and a good podcast or Netflix binge. I've pinned places from all over the globe, but the truth is I've never even left the country!

So imagine my shock when my boyfriend's parents surprised us with an early Christmas gift—they're taking us to London and Paris for two weeks this summer. I still can't actually believe it, and I don't think it will hit me until we board the plane. So naturally, I'm already going over a few sights that I'd love to see and places that I must go shop. Oh, and I suppose I need to get a passport.

How To Rock Bold Eyeliner

Before I really got into makeup I always wanted to wear bold eyeliners but never had the courage. I thought my face couldn't handle it and I had no idea how to apply it. After playing around for a long time I've come across few ways that anyone can pull off that wild eyeliner they have been eyeing!

via Pretty Cute Eyes

If you are new to makeup or just haven't explored different colors yet, stick with liners that are more earthy. Start with lining them in your waterline or on your lower lash line and once you feel comfortable with that, add the liner to your upper lash line!

Copper | Bronze

During the daytime you don't want to go towards anything too bright or shimmery. Colors such as purple, blue, brown and green are great ways to branch outside the usual black liner but still have that pop! Create a thin line on your upper lash line and smudge it out so you are comfortable wearing it!
