Today Bionic Beauty reader Briana shares her personal experience with YBF Skincare’s Correct eye serum… And Briana, thanks for submitting your first “Reader Review” to the blog!

I have tried every eye care product in the universe. OK, maybe I’ve missed a few, but I have TRULY never had one stop me in my tracks when I did a double take in front of the mirror.  The reason I have been searching so hard? The same reason we all do it:  We don’t want to look older.  We still believe in the fountain of youth. Mine came in a small bottle called “Correct” made by a company named YBF-Skincare.  It most definitely is my new BFF (that’s Best Friend Forever for those who don’t do text messaging)!

YBF's Correct eye serum is thick and super concentrated!

I am an pessimistic, harsh critic of skin care products and even a bit harsher when sampling an eye care product.  I am 39 and the crow’s feet are starting. How can this be when I still get my I.D. checked if I want to buy a Lotto ticket? I have tried smoothers, primers, and anti-wrinklers- they seem to make my crow’s feet just show up even better. I put on the Correct and when I checked in the mirror a few minutes later, the wrinkles were still visible, but barely so.  This seemed too good to be true, but time and time again, when I apply it, the puffiness and wrinkles decrease tremendously.  I even felt brave enough to try the makeup test, and finally the crow’s feet weren’t the first thing to notice!

The problem in finding such a treasure is that it sells for a hefty price; but to me, it’s worth it.
The real downside I had was with the actual bottle, not the product.  These new pumps rise up from the bottom and keep pushing the product to the top of the bottle where it is sucked up through a pump, in theory. Mine didn’t work like that.  I had to finally remove the lid, stand it upside down and it still was stuck in there.  I used a cotton swab after pulling off the cotton, because I didn’t want to waste a precious drop of this liquid platinum.  I have now probably used everything in the house to cram it into my little bottle and get “just one more” application out.

It has an interesting list of ingredients, including the Matrixyl 3000 Spin Trap ingredients to snag the free radicals, Vitamin C used in a manner that doesn’t cause more irritation.  (I have learned that if not used correctly, Vitamin C can cause redness and irritation.) I can get Correct in my eyes and it doesn’t even provoke the slightest sensation of discomfort, quite the opposite actually.  It also has Cucumber extract– this reminds me of the trick of placing a few slices of cucumber over my eyelids to reduce puffiness.  With Cucumber inside the bottle, it still works it’s magic!  I think Correct has the right number of good ingredients without overdoing it.It feels very nice, clean and smooth going on, leaves skin soft and radiant, wears very well under makeup, and wears very well over makeup for a mid day quick-fix.  Best of all, it makes me feel so confident I don’t need to wear makeup, I actually prefer to enjoy the pleasure of this alone.  I suggest putting it on after washing and a cool water rinse; then it has a few minutes to work it’s wonders before makeup application.  Remember that the eye area skin is very delicate.  Always use a feather light touch and don’t use your index fingers, they are stronger and harsher when applying anything to the dermis.

Correct eye serum is available for $150 at YBF-Skincare.com.

I used to have puffy dry skin under my eyes…very sensitive. I’ve used other under eye creams and end up irritating my eyes, since most contain alchohol and other chemicals. What solved my problems was the Made from Earth Olive Night Creme. I tried over night and the next morning felt refreshed. My under eye area was soft, moisturized and HYDRATED. I use it once or twice a week.

I’ve been using it for quite a while now and I’ve seen a dramatic difference. I found that by applying it and then laying down – I kid you not, you’ll see better and immediate results if you do it that way and look great!

I’m completely sold on the Olive Night Creme (from Made from Earth) and am stocked for the next 3 months :)
