Let me just start off by saying this is NOT a sponsored post. I’ve mentioned before that I have an issue with dark under eye circles, and that I’ve been searching for something that might lessen the discoloration so I don’t have to rely as heavily on concealer. Not that I don’t love my concealer, but anything more than a thin coating just looks thick and horrible, so I’ll take any help I can get!
I’ve given up on eye creams- they never seem to work, and I hate constantly trying new products because you never know which ones are going to cause some sort of bad reaction with your skin. Plus, I spend enough money on my skin care that cutting out any specific product (especially something ineffective) is appreciated. But of course, hope springs eternal, and I decided that giving an under eye patch a try might be worth it. Especially since there are plenty of cheap options so I won’t feel like I wasted a bunch of money if they don’t work.
Through a combination of Google research and random selection, I ended up with the Grace & Stella Depuffing + Energizing Golden Powder Gel Collagen Eye Masks (whew! Say that 5 times fast!) from Amazon. And now I’m completely obsessed.
I started out just wearing them at night before bed, but the packaging has enough liquid left over that I started letting them reabsorb the extra and then wearing them again for 20-30 min in the morning. The kids think it’s hysterical.
It’s possible that no one but me can even tell a difference, but I think they really help with puffiness and even slightly diminish the darkness under my eyes.
What do you think?
I’m not giving up my concealer any time soon, but I am so thrilled I found these eye patches. Mainly because I think they actually help, but also because they’re kind of fun to use. Bonus!
