No More Tired Eyes

Written by Ashley

I don’t know if it’s because I don’t drink enough water, or because I never sleep, or a combo of both…but bloodshot eyes and under eye circles and  have come out to play.  And not like that ‘ TAG, YOU’RE IT! ” play. They don’t play nice.

So what do I used to put them in time out?

ROHTO Eye Drops $6.79 at or check out WHERE TO BUY at


There are four products in the ROHTO line – new Hydra, Cool, Ice and Arctic. I dig them all, for their specialities like redness relief, itchy eyes & allergies. For my tired eyes, I’m all about the ICE!  Celebrity makeup artist Gita Bass, who has worked with some of Hollywood’s leading ladies like Tina Fey, Christina Applegate and Elizabeth Banks, LOVES these drops, and they’re a staple in her makeup kit because they “clear redness, while cooling and refreshing for an instant wake-up!”

Magnolia Fresh Eyes  $38.95 at

And the killer compact comes with a huge mirror and small sponge inside, that helps keep any product from sinking into lines and any wee wrinkles that may pop up.  Even if I didn’t have all of these other fine tools in my tired-eyes arsenal, I know THIS will keep me looking dewy, fresh, and flawless. Yea I said it. FLAWLESS!

  • A friend of mine recommended and let me try an undereye solution that was basically sheer magic in a bottle! It’s called “eye primer”, and it’s from Paula Dorf New York! It makes your eye circles virtually disappear, and I know that’s extremely valuable for a workaholic like me!
