it’s time for another korean beauty product review. We all love to moisturize the gentle under eye area and give ourselves that extra energy boost in the morning or after a long day at work. That is exactly the time, when I love using eye patches. Because let’s face it – they are easy to apply & you can go on with whatever you were doing.
The patches come in a clean white looking packaging with gold details. There are 60 sheets in total, that are obviously good for a 30 days treatment or for whenever you feel you need it.
I’ve purchased the product from Wishtrend where it retails for USD32.00, which only makes about 53 cents per sheet.
What made me want to try the product in the first place? The easy access, the adorable little spatula that you use to get each patch out, definitely the golden look of the product (who doesn’t love a little gold dust?!) and the idea to quickly moisturize and give back some elasticity to my under eye area. But also simply just for those days, when I feel more tired than usual.
What are the key ingredients? It suppose to have 17kinds of naturalplantextracts in it, such as Green Tea and Chamomile, as well as Castor Oil and Sugar Maple. The ingredients I found especially interesting though were: Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, Arbutin (especially interesting for those with dark circles), Adenosine (activates skin cell repair process) and Placenta (improves elasticity).
How to use the product? Simply get two of the patches from the container with the mentioned spatula and apply to your previously cleaned face. I found that you can put them on either way – with the thinner or thicker side to your outer corner, depending which area you want to take care of. Leave the product on for about 20 minutes and proceed with your tasks, the patches won’t fall off. How do the patches feel on your skin? When first applied, you get the nice cooling effect, but not to the degree where it’s not comfortable anymore.
What are the immediate effects? During the treatment, I literally felt like my eyes start to relax, especially if I spent several hours behind the pc before. Afterwards the whole under eye area feels really hydrated, and even the little lines seem to be smoothen out a bit.
As I don’t tend to get especially dark circles, I can’t tell you if it get’s lighter after using the patches for 30 days straight, but that great hydration boost, is definitely there. You can even tell while taking the patches off, they are much thinner, than before application – I haven’t experienced this with any other similar products. Would I repurchase the product?Yes, in fact i most probably would. But as I’d also like to try similar products before that, it will have to wait. Next on my list is the Secret Key’s Gold Racoony Hydro Gel Eye and Spot Patch, that seem to have almost the same ingredients, so I’d like to compare.
Overall thoughts: The hydro-gel system is known to absorb well the solution they are put in and is very easy to apply. It’s really handy in terms of fighting against the morning puffiness and the evening dryness. Love the cooling effect, especially during summer. Would give the product 4 of 5 stars.
