Don't get me wrong. I love being a mom. But those under eye circles I can't seem to kick? Not so much. When it's time to cover them up, I feel like a painter. The back of my hand looks like an artist's palette that's covered in schmears of makeup. So when I was sent a sample of Miracle Skin Transormer (MST) Treat & Conceal, I was one happy camper. This product promises to diminish dark circles, improve skin's texture, and minimize fine lines/puffiness around your peepers.

The first thing I noticed when I squeezed out this multi-tasker is that it seemed thick. Honestly, it made me a bit nervous. I like products that look and feel natural. Would this look like spackle on my face?I'm happy to report that it practically melted into my skin. It had a silky consistency, and I'd even go as far as to say that it felt hydrating!
I used a concealer brush to tap it onto problem areas, then dabbed it with my ring finger to blend. Take a look at how it works below. The eye on your left has MST underneath. The eye to your right is naked:
It's not the most flattering picture, but you get the idea. Definitely better, no? It took less than a pea-sized amount to remedy the situation. It also helped cover up a (gasp) age spot that I'm in the process of getting lasered off. (One more treatment should do it!)
As for the healing, I did have a wicked red spot from popping a pimple (ugh) that seemed to disappear a smidge faster. In the "tightening" department, I don't have many fine lines around my eyes yet, so it's tough for me to say with certainty that it did much. However, I have heard other gals rave about it!

MST Treat & Conceal is a great way to fake some sleep...at least until my parents come to visit (ahem, babysit)! Find it for $36 in light, light/medium, and medium shades on miracleskintransformer.com.
