Now, lets dive into these products! Here is some information directly from about these amazing products. Plus, I had a little bit of time to try out each of these products so that I could give you guys some first impressions! Read more below:

La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar Eyes:
Pigmentclar Eyes is a daily dark circle eye cream that visibly reduces the look of blue and brown dark circles. Its gentle melt-in texture is enriched with light-reflecting pigments and is associated with a metal cooling applicator. Brightens and freshens up the appearance of the undereye area. The eye contour looks brighter. Blue and brown dark circles are visibly reduced.

This is a nice and lightweight eye cream. I love the feel of the product going on my under eye area with the metal cooling applicator tip. I squeeze out just a small amount and then soothe it one with the cooling tip. I believe that this method helps with fluid accumulation and makes your eye area look more rested and refreshed. This formula absorbs quickly and doesn't leave you feeling greasy. It also provides a good base for makeup. My dark circles are super-duper dark. So, I need a nice and moisturizing eye cream for underneath my concealer. This one seems to do the trick. Now, does the eye cream itself help with my dark circles? So far, no. However, I have only used this product for a couple weeks. Those results would take longer and honestly...I never expect an eye cream to work miracles in that department. Even a slight result would make me happy. There are some light reflective pigments in this formula which could help detract from lighter "dark circles". However, I apply eye cream anyways. So, it is a moot point. This eye cream does hydrate and make my eye area look smooth. I like a thicker eye cream for night time use. However, this is great for me for during the day!

EltaMD UV Daily Tinted Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 40:
EltaMD UV Daily Broad Spectrum SPF 40 offers daily sun defense in a moisturizing formula. This zinc oxide sunscreen provides broad spectrum protection against UVA rays that age and UVB rays that burn the skin. The sheer, lightweight formula absorbs quickly, making it ideal for use alone or under makeup.

This product contains 9% zinc oxide, one of the highest amounts available on the market. In addition to providing great sun protection, zinc oxide helps stop the premature signs of aging. This sunscreen moisturizer also contains hyaluronic acid, which can hold up to 1,000 times its own weight in water to provide essential hydration while plumping the complexion. The sensitive skin care formula is also paraben-free, fragrance-free and non-comedogenic.

I am always looking for good facial sunscreens and this one seems to be a winner for me, so far. I wear a facial sunscreen every single day without fail: sunshine or not! With skin cancer in the family and the loss of a friend to Melanoma, I don't mess around when it comes to sun protection. Plus, as we know, applying a great SPF every day is one of the best things that you can do to prevent signs of aging! This EltaMD UV Daily Tinted Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 40 contains my favorite sunscreen ingredient, zinc oxide. The tint in the formula helps to counteract the natural white effect of the zinc. With that said, this formula is super sheer and the white cast is really a non-issue. It goes on ultra light and sheer. It has a hydrating feel but is not sticky nor does it leave you feeling greasy at all. It does leave a nice "sheen" to the skin that leaves you glowy (not greasy). Love that the SPF is a high 40! I feel like the tint slightly perfects my skin. At first I thought the tint would make it too dark for my fair skin, but no! So far, no breakouts from this SPF either. I am really happy with it!

EltaMD Foaming Facial Cleanser:
Its deep cleaning formula lathers into a rich foam that removes dirt, oil and other buildup on the skin. This foaming gel cleanser washes away impurities without drying out or irritating the complexion. The gel purifies without harsh surfactants, so this product is gentle enough for all skin types. 

EltaMD Foaming Facial Cleanser contains a gentle enzyme and amino acid blend that removes makeup, dirt and oil. This cleanser goes on as a gel, loosening buildup that clogs pores and dulls the skin. Then the gel activates into foam, reaching deep down into the dermis to cleanse away impurities. It leaves your skin feeling clean, clear and ready to absorb other skin care products.  

This mild cleanser from EltaMD is perfect for my somewhat sensitive skin. I like the mild and gentle foaming formula. It leaves my skin feeling clean and comfortable. It is not completely clean rinsing. However, at this time of year, when my skin is getting less oily, I don't mind a bit of residue. Also, I really like the thick foam! Plus, I enjoy the light and fresh scent.
