Beauty and The Mommy: No Sleep? No Problem!

Everyone says that the best way to be gorgeous is to drink plenty of water and sleep well. Yeah ok! I agree with these statements BUT what about moms? What if your baby wakes up 2-3 times in the middle of the night and during the day you have to do a million things (plus take care of baby)? 
Let me tell you that I am a lucky mother: my baby sleeps from 21.00 to 4.00, wakes up for 10 minutes to drink his milk and sleeps again till 7.30. But he doesn’t sleep a lot during the day, so I have to do everything during the night(cleaning, relax etc). 
So, what do we do ladies? How will we combat those black and blue eyes?  
Conceal it, baby!!! Just a little bit of a good concealer and your eyes will look fresh again!
Take a look!
Conceal it, baby!

Do you use concealer? Which is your favorite one? What are your ”secret weapons” to fight dark circles?


Garnier Anti Dark Circles Roll On

Let’s be honest! Most of us when we wake up in the morning we hate the dark circles under our eyes. Am I wrong? We do everything: eye pads, masks, do-it-yourself beauty tricks(yeap!I am thinking the trick with potatoes), but these awful dark circles keep coming nearly everyday.

I have read a lot of reviews about Garnier Anti Dark Circles Roll On and I decided to give it a try.
Here’s what Garnier claims:
Roll-on with dual anti dark circles action: 
Instant Coverage: Concentrated in mineral pigments, it covers dark circles in a flash. Soft, natural-looking finish, long lasting wear. 
Anti-dark circles hydrating care: enriched with caffeine and pure lemon essence, it combines a hydrating formula and the draining effect of a massage to effectively reduce dark circles and reveal a radiant and fresh look.

First of all, I like the roll-on packaging; it dispenses just the right amount of product as you move the roller ball against your skin and the massage feeling that gives you is pretty cool especially in the morning.The texture is kind of thin, light, almost watery. You have to blend the product as quick as possible because it gets absorbed very quickly. When it dries out, it gives a matte but fresh effect to the eyes. You can refresh it during the day, as it doesn’t get cakey nor it creases.

As it claims, it contains caffeine and it should have helped in reducing the puffiness and the dark circles under the eyes. In fact, I haven’t noticed any improvement in my dark circles. So, I won’t suggest you to use it as an under eye care product.

I think it’s a great light concealer and gives a natural result, ideal for everyday use. Don’t expect a full coverage product and it might not work for you if you have very dark circles. For me, it is more than ok, ’cause I don’t like heavy make up for my everyday looks and I don’t mind if dark circles or imperfections can be seen on my face.
Here are some swatches:

Good morning dark circles! 
After applied the product. Not big difference, right?

For the moment it has replaced my everyday concealer. If I would buy it again? Hmmm..I don’t know yet! Maybe yes! I am just skeptical because after I finish the Garnier Roll-On I would like to try a mineral concealer.
Have you ever tried the Garnier Anti Dark Roll On? What do you think about it? Let me know girls!
