I don't know what's pollinating or floating around in the air lately, but I've been a big allergic mess. Not only am I sneezing and dealing with a stuffy nose, but my eyes! If they aren't watering, they are itching. They are puffy with huge dark circles that my doctor tells me are "allergy shiners." Whatever they are, they are ugly, and I don't like them.
Payot Lotion Bleue actually works as a decongestant, getting rid of those puffy bags under the eyes. You soak a cotton ball and lay it on the eyelids, then lay down and relax for 10 minutes. When you get up again, your eyes will feel and look amazing. Payot also says that it helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but when I used this in the past I was in my mid-twenties, and I didn't have any wrinkles, and was fairly confident that I wouldn't ever get them, either. Ah, youth.
Another little pot of goodness that I hoarded forever. Payot Doux Regard Soothing & Decongesting Eye Gel was my only eye cream for years, and it was because of those decongesting properties that Payot does so well with their eye products. It does miracles with puffiness and dark circles. Miracles, I tell you! And apparently it is also excellent for wrinkle depth and hydration, although again, I never paid any attention to that sort of thing in my 20s. I was far too busy being invincible for that.
