Puffy the Eye Bag Slayer Under Eye Patches

19 February 2014

I received these Under eye patches in the January Glossybox, and being a good sport, have decided to review them and include silly pictures of myself wearing them. Obviously the packaging is the standard brightly coloured stuff we're used to from Anatomicals. I have to say though, having read some reviews that mentioned the liquid inside going everywhere when the eye patches were opened, I opened mine over the sink which saved me getting damp!

Here's my eyes before application. Somewhat baggy and tired looking. I haven't been sleeping well lately, so I thought now would be the perfect time to have a go at fixing up my dark circles!

According to the packaging, these eye patches are 'enriched with moisturising agents and collagen', and 'help to reduce dark circles and signs of ageing and eliminate puffiness'. I was pretty intrigued to see whether the claims about puffiness and dark circles would prove to be true! See below for the hilarious picture of me wearing the eye patches.

Now that's out of the way, let's talk about the patches. These were really easy to apply, but you do have to leave them on for 30 minutes which is quite a long time. I also felt like the patches were slipping off occasionally, so I had to kind of smush them back into place. They do feel very soothing on the eye area though, if a little cold.

And there's my after shot. At first, I wasn't very impressed. My dark circles haven't really diminished at all, and there's still some slight puffiness. However, the next day I did notice that my under eye area was nowhere near as dark, and that the puffiness had gone down noticeably. Is the effect enough that I will repurchase them? Probably not, but they're still pretty fun and easy to use, even if you do have to sit around for half an hour!
These are £6 for a pack of three, and are available here.
