Eye Patch Masks: what they are and why I love them
links + loves
I love face masks. It’s one of my favorite things to do for myself in the evening after the kids go to bed. I love a face mask, but I hate a sheet mask. It always feels too cold, it doesn’t lay on my face right, and I feel like I need to lie horizontally in my bed to get the face mask to stay. I like to multitask when doing a mask so traditional “apply the product directly to your face and move on with your life” is more my speed.
By the way, go ahead and pick up one of these face mask brushes to up your face mask game by at least 10 points.
When it comes to eye masks, however, I love using an eye patch mask. They are typically sold in small pouches though I’m seeing them also sold in small containers with a little spatula to help lift one at a time. The patch itself if very soft and flexible, and product is on the side that presses down against your skin. It doesn’t slide off, it feels cooling in the right place on my face to help tighten that area, and in general I feel like I can really see a difference when I use them
I’ve tried a few recently that I wanted to share here!
One. Pixi DetoxifEYE Depuffing Eye Patches. These were sent to me as a part of a PR package with no strings attached. I was very excited to try them and I felt like they genuinely made my skin feel more firm in that area. I didn’t see a big difference in the de-puffing because I don’t struggle with that, but I liked how they made my eye skin feel so much I’ll continue to use them.
Two. Peter Thomas Roth 24k Gold Hydra-Gel Eye Patches. These are crazy expensive but are very loved by many so I’m glad I got to give them a shot in this kit I found at Ulta! I used them once and found them to be very hydrating and firming!
I’ve used these Hydrogel Patches by Blaq that came in a FabFitFun box awhile back. I found them to be really comfortable and easy to wear, and they definitely hydrated my under eye!
Have you used an eye patch before? It feels so nice on that area of my face, and I’m sure if you are feeling puffy or are looking to kick up some moisture in that area that an eye patch mask would be perfect to try.
