I learned about this product through Kitten. So Kitten, this one’s for you. I found this at Watsons and was more than willing to try it out since I have a very appropriate test subject – MB. He has dark circles under his eyes and he had puffy eyes because of his recent OT’s. I also didn’t mind trying it.
These are crescent-shaped masks that you put under your eyes. Be careful not to put it too close to your eyes as it somewhat stings (I have sensitive eyes). There are 30 sheets in one pack and is so sulit for only Php89.75.
It’s enriched with all these goodies that promises to reduce eye puffiness and dark circles.
I don’t have puffy eyes but there are some areas under my eyes that are a bit dark. On my first use, I immediately noticed the outside area, near the ‘V’, lighten. It wasn’t a temporary thing. Until now, that area has remained lighter. I’ve only used this twice and I can really say that it’s effective. My concealer application on those areas is lesser now.
MB also tried it twice and he was very happy with the results. The puffiness was definitely reduced and the dark circles diminished. He immediately exclaimed that the area under his eyes are whiter after peeling off the mask.
Since I had 15 pairs, I also gave my mom and my sister to try. They are also happy with the results.
We didn’t experience any itching or redness or rashes. We apply this for 15 minutes and then I pat the excess product with a soft tissue. You can choose to leave the excess too. I’m just being careful. There is no strong smell that can irritate the eyes. One downside is, when I woke up the next day, I had a lot of dirt in my eyes. MB also experienced the same but since I have very sensitive eyes, the build up of dirt was enough to keep my eyes a bit shut. It took some effort to clean it up to be able to open my eyes. The second time was not like that anymore. I guess my eyes were already able to adjust.
I think the trick is, if you have really dark circles or your eyes are always tired, you have to use this everyday for maximum results. I’m quite happy to use this about twice a week. MB is willing to use this everyday as long as I be the one to apply. I just hope I don’t forget anymore. Also, take this 15 minutes to lie down, close your eyes and totally relax. Do some breathing exercises if you can. Trust me, you will feel refreshed and rejuvenated afterwards.
In my opinion, this works better than the Garnier roll on. The results are faster, more noticeable and lasts longer.
