The Bags Under My Eyes WERE Designer

We've all heard the saying "The bags under my eyes are designer."  I love that saying - it made me feel better about the dark circles and bags under my eyes that were more hereditary than "designer."

I jumped at the chance to review InstaNatural's Youth Express Eye Gel and Youth Express Eye Serum.  I've always hated the bags and circles under my eyes, and InstaNatural products continue to exceed my expectations!

When using the products, I generally shower, put on my toner, and then apply the Youth Express Eye Gel to my forehead and cheeks.  I put it on my fingertips and lightly tap away.  I've been using the product for a little over a week, and the skin in those areas just looks better.  It's firmer (which is nice because your skin stops producing collagen way before you realize how important collagen is) and brighter.  Application directions say that the product can be used twice daily, but I prefer to just use it at night after my shower.

From there, I move on to the Youth Express Eye Serum.  I start at the inner corner of my eye, and lightly tap it from the inner corner to the outer corner.  It's important to tap it very gently!  Sometimes I get a little excited about getting rid of those dark circles and use too much, so I lightly tap a piece of toilet paper over it to absorb the extra.  I can already tell an improvement with the skin under my eyes!  I no longer freak out when putting on eye shadow with fear that it will just make the dark circles appear event darker.  Application directions say that this product can be used twice daily, as well, but I only use it at night after my shower.  The product is orange, so I'm not sure how well it would blend under my makeup.

What do you think?  Anything you would be interested in trying?!  If you have any questions about the products, feel free to leave it in the comments or shoot me an email :)

A big thank you to InstaNatural for providing me with their product in exchange for an honest review!



P.S. - Here are a few of my InstaNatural favorites!


  1. I would totally be interested in trying the products! I would love to hear more. Whenever I am tired my eyes are a dead giveaway. Generally I wear my glasses instead of my contacts those days, but I would prefer a better solution haha

    1. I have had nothing but great experiences with InstaNatural products! I highly recommend them! (Plus - they are super affordable compared to other products on the market :) )

      I use the same trick! I also feel like glasses help my tired eyes on those days :)

      Thanks for stopping by! Xo

    1. Glad that you agree! I'm so excited about upcoming projects with them :)

  4. These sound great! Thanks for sharing- I always love hearing about new beauty products. Have a great weekend!

  5. I'll have to look into the Argan Oil! I have serious bags when I don't get enough sleep. I read in an article that one of Selena Gomez's go to beauty products was First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy and I gave it a shot - SO worth buying! It's on sale right now on Amazon. I just put a little under each eye before my Bare Minerals and it makes a huge difference.
