Your everyday face moisturizer is enough to prevent and treat eye bags. (As well as getting adequate sleep and staying hydrated). As for preventing dark circles around the eyes sunscreen will do more for you than an eye cream. You should be wearing an spf 30+ everyday regardless of weather. Genetics also play a big part in dark circles. But this is a good start.

V is for V-shaped maskSpoilerRegen Cos 2-Step Synergy Effect Mask (Brightening) is a 2-piece mask, but unlike the typical 2-piece sheet mask, the bottom half is not made of the same material as the top half and has ear loops. Top Portion of MaskThe top half resembles your standard, run-of-the-mill medium-thick cotton sheet mask, soaked and dripping in a clear, watery essence with an ever-so-slightly minty herbal scent, except that, instead of covering the entire face, the top half of the mask only covers the area from the forehead all the way to the top of the mouth, so to call it a "top half" of the mask may not be entirely correct, maybe the top part is more accurate. I ended up pressing some of the extra essence out of the mask because there was just so much, more than the mask could absorb as it was dripping everywhere. Adherence is good and fit works well with some minor adjustments to the corners of the eyes. Directions recommend wearing the mask for 20 minutes, but since there didn't seem to be anything alarming in the inci list and since I didn't experience any tingling from the mask, I ended up leaving the mask on for about 35 - 40 minutes and there were no signs of this mask drying out anytime soon even after that time. The masks claims to brighten skin tone and notable ingredients such as niacinamide and arbutin seem to support that claim. Also FYI for those interested, added fragrance is listed in the middle of the ingredients list and alcohol near the end. After removing the mask and giving the essence some time to fully absorb, there was a slight tacky-to-the-touch feel and some brightening, though not as much as I expected; this combination, though makes me think this top part might work well as a pre-makeup mask. Bottom Portion of MaskThe bottom portion of the mask is two sided, with one side (the side to be applied to your skin) has a soft gel-ish feel to it, while the other side feels more like a backing to support the gel side. This side which faces outward is a soft, thick-ish, possibly cotton fabric that is stretchy and as I noted earlier has ear loops. This bottom portion of the mask is intended to provide some lifting, to presumably help shape or sculpt the jawline. Hmmm.... I'm always a little skeptical about such claims, but I'm game for giving it a shot. The bottom portion of these types of masks usually don't adhere / fit well for me and end up slipping off one of my ears. Not so with this mask. It wore comfortably the entire time I had it on. After removing this portion of the mask, I didn't really notice any tightening or sculpting of my jawline so much as I noticed that I was less puffy in certain areas. That's a welcome result and, as with the results from top part of the mask, it makes me think this bottom part would also be good to use in the mornings, as part of a pre-makeup masking sesh.Overall ThoughtsOverall, the mask provides some brightening, though not as much as I expected / hoped. My favorite brightening mask, especially in the cooler months because of its milky essence is the Dr. Jart V7 Toning Mask. That said, I'd be interested in trying out another mask from this line. I heard that there's one containing snail mucin and I may need to search for that one at some point. As for this particular brightening one, I could see this being useful to take with you on a trip, for use after a flight. Ingredients (of top portion of the mask) (from cosdna (dot) com)SpoilerWater, glycerin, butylene glycol, niacinamide, betaine, panthenol , phenoxyethanol , PEG-60 hydrogenated castor oil, hydroxyethyl acrylate/sodium acryloyldimethyl taurate copolymer, ethylhexylglycerin, xanthan gum, sodium polyacrylate, arbutin, fragrance, disodium EDTA, arnica montana flower extract, artemisia absinthium extract, achillea millefolium extract, gentiana lutea root extract, malva sylvestris (mallow) extract, mentha piperita (peppermint) leaf extract, primula veris extract, alchemilla vulgaris extract, veronica officinalis extract, melissa officinalis leaf extract, portulaca oleracea extract, anthemis nobilis flower extract, acer saccharum (sugar maple) extract, alcohol, potassium sorbate, allantoin, dipotassium glycyrrhizateRegen Cos 2-Step Synergy Effect Mask (Brightening) is a 2-piece mask, but unlike the typical 2-piece sheet mask, the bottom half is not made of the same material as the top half and has ear loops.

@quspork My Face is usually always red and irritated from time to time but I never had this much acne until now. I want to try and reduce my acne and redness. I don’t want to have so many products on my face either because I know using many products can damage your skin. Also, do you know a better moisturizer that’s affordable and works great for my skin? this is how it looks like right now :
