I never realized how wonderful moisturizing eye patches were until I turned 30 and found myself going through a lot of emotional stress in my life. I would wake up in the morning, eyes all puffy and swollen and didn't want to walk around for the rest of the day looking that way. Makeup can only do so much!
I have always loved Peter Thomas Roth products so I gave these a whirl. For starters, there are many more patches in the container to use and much more affordable! It costs $52 for a package of 60 of the Hyaluronic Hydra-Gels. There are other eye patch options including 24K gold and cucumber detox, both of which have their purposes and I will be trying out, but for those who find themselves needing to hydrate the face, moisturize and instantly improve the look of fine lines and under-eye darkness, I recommend this product.
For starters, this product includes Hyaluronic Acid which has become a go-to in my skincare regimen. Hyaluronic acid can retain up to 1,000 times its weight in water from moisture in the air. It promotes healthier, more supple skin and can help increase moisture in the skin, ultimately hydrating it to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dermatitis (something I use to suffer from). There are many other benefits but these are the ones I found most important.
It is also made with Ceramide NP, Collagen, Caffeine and Marshmallow Root Extract. So what are the benefits of those ingredients? Well for starters, we all have collagen but as we get older, the production process slows down, and as a result you may start to see wrinkles and sagging skin. One of the most well-known benefits of collagen is its ability to promote vibrant skin, provide more elasticity and help it appear more youthful and healthy. Hydrolyzed collagen is broken down into smaller parts so it can be easily absorbed and used by your body. Marshmallow Root helps soften and soothe the look of skin while Caffeine helps de-puff.
Instructions: Place on the eye area for 10-15 minutes (I like to leave on for longer) and you will feel a very cool, soothing sensation. Afterwards you will notice that the puffiness has subsided, the eye area is more glowing and youthful looking and wonder why you never used them before. I love these little suckers and I know you will too!
