What it is: Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels
What they say: When you're run down and stressed out, the delicate skin under your eyes really takes a beating, resulting in puffiness, dark circles and premature wrinkling.
In just ten minutes, this cooling transdermal gel patch infuses the eye area with highly potent actives and Icelandic glacial water to firm, tone, brighten and reduce the appearance of puffiness and wrinkles. Eyes are revived, soothed and rejuvenated.
How to use: Remove backing and apply gel side to under eye area for ten minutes. Use once a week or whenever you need a quick fix!
When you’re wearing them, these Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels do look and feel a bit odd, but, boy, do they pack a punch!
The pads are kind of comma/apostrophe shaped, and in all honesty, I’m never quite sure how to apply them, but they seem to be working just fine so far. Basically you just peel them off, apply to your under eye, and wait 10 minutes or so.
These eye gels stick to your skin well, but don’t pull or tug when you remove them. The gel has has a slight cooling sensation, like most Skyn Iceland products, and leaves a little bit behind when you remove them. Simply pat in and you’re good to go.
Whatever is on these pads really do work to make me look less tired pretty much immediately after I remove them.
You can use these once a week as part of your regular skincare routine, but I tend to use them mostly for situations when I really need to look rested and awake.
For instance, I was getting ready for an interview recently, but barely slept at all the night before (I was nervous!). So I put these babies on while I got dressed and ready.
Upon removal, I patted in the extra gel, did my hair, then was able to do my makeup without any issues. My concealer actually went on much easier than normal, which was great. I was able to go to my interview looking refreshed and ready to conquer the world!
Overall, I really like the Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels. They’re a really easy way to give your under eyes some TLC without trying that hard. I definitely plan on investing in more of these!
