New at Target: Pixi and Embryolisse

For about 20 years now, I have been obsessed with my undereye health and appearance. Serums, creams, dark circle correctors, concealers and mid-day rejuvinators. For longer than that I have been obsessed with Targets growing beauty department.

Pixi is an awesome line that I got drawn into with their makeup. It was affordable and beautiful. I jumped on the Pixi Glow Tonic bandwagon and haven't looked back. When the 24K Eye Elixir came out, it wasn't hard for me to justify the expense. The slim tube has a roller-ball applicator and delivers a smooth serum that imparts a bit of a shine as well. It has a cooling effect and boasts Gold that stimulates circulation, Collagen that strengthens skin, Peptides that plump fine lines. It also claims to de-puff the undereye area. Although you could pop this in the refrigerator for a cooling roller-ball experience, I keep it in my purse to smooth and comfort the undereye area when it gets dry during the day. I have to say I like it except for the expense of the product.

An even more expensive product (although this brand commands respect and expense) is the Embyolisse  Radiant Eye stick. It is small, the balm is a push up within the tube and is smooth and although a solid, sweeps across the skin like a serum. This one I love to use at bedtime because it is a bit thicker and lasts a bit longer on my skin. Over my nighttime undereye retinol, this soothes and protects. Apparently makeup artists love this product and keep in their kits. Although I love the product I am not sure I can justify the $45.

No problem, because I love to hunt for the coolest, smoothest, most awesome undereye products and the hunt is as fun as the finding! Have you tried either of these? What do you think of the growing beauty department in Target?
