Battle of the Eye Masks ⚡️💙 Gel vs Paper Foil

Mallory
Sometimes when things are rough it’s the little things that can get you through the day. For me today it was eye patches! They are my favorite little pick me up 🖤 In the mail today I got iNNBEAUTY PROJECT - Electrify Lightening Bolt Eye Mask
which I was very excited about. They have a 4 pack for $20 on their website (or at the time I’m writing this they have this in a 2 for $2 mask bundle with this). I’m very drawn to the neon packaging. The blue lightening bolts are so cute and fun!! Definitely selfie worthy. They are a gel eye mask which instantly feels cool and soothing on the eyes. It claims to depuff, hydrate, and even out the skintone. My only complaint about them is I wish the lightening bolt, as cute as it is, was a little bigger so it hit more surface area. After 10 minutes my eyes were depuffed and hydrated. They did slip off my face a little but were easily pushed back into place (mind you I was walking around). It also doesn’t have a smell. I decided to compare this with another similar eye mask in my collection, the WANDER BEAUTY - Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks
. Instead of being gel these are a paper foil mask. Because it is paper it doesn’t have that intense of a cooling effect as the gel formula does. You can get a 6 pack for $25 at Sephora. It claims to brighten, hydrate, and reduce the appearance of dark circles. What I like about this mask is the size! It definitely covers my under eyes and then some. They also don’t slip off my face. After 10 minutes my under eyes were definitely hydrated and soft. It also has a weird, soapy smell. While they both did hydrate the under eyes I personally prefer the INNBEAUTYPROJECT because of its gel formula. I feel like the gel formula helps depuff the eyes more than the paper foil. They are cuter and at this point it’s more about self care/feeling good for myself. Plus I love the cooling effect it has where the Wander does not. If they could combine the wander eye patches with the INNBEAUTYPROJECT you would have the perfect eye patch 🖤💙

A little packet of luxury
Alright. I was born blessed with dark circles or at least I can’t remember a time when I didn’t have them. So over the years I would invest in creams and gels and eye rollers to try and fix them. Still nothing. Then I started to buy all the concealers and they always seemed to make me feel cakey, crease or rub off so by the end of the day I looked as tired as I felt (not ideal). Today was the first time I used WANDER BEAUTY - Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks . While I can’t say I’m in love I’m definitely in like. I left it on for 15 minutes. I massaged my under eyes when I put it on and then again when I was taking them off. They market that the gold foil keeps the heat in and it seemed like it did. They masks were warmer than my skin when I felt them. When I took them off it seemed like the edge of the mask left a crease on my under eye skin but that went away pretty quickly. Another weird thing was that the left eye seemed to have more serum than the right when I was taking them off. Anyway, I do feel like maybe my dark circles have faded a bit. I definitely feel pampered though and at $25 for 6 packets I would really hope that I did. After this initial use, there are a few things I would change. I would not do this in the morning since my eyes still feel a little sticky (I’m still WFH, so it’s fine). I think I would do a little less massaging because maybe that’s what caused the dryness on the right patch??? Overall, pretty pleased with the result but because they’re pretty expensive, not adding this to my weekly routine. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ UPDATE: do NOT recommend doing this with your boyfriend. He will make you laugh and then they will just fall off and then he will take pictures of you to send to all of his friends...

Eye mask that stays on
Having issues with the gel under eye masks, this sheet mask is so light that it stays in place. The serum you just pay in after and under eyes look brighter. I always feel fancy when using this eye mask. It has a cooling sensation and covers a lot of under eye area. Will be repurchasing these. My box came with 5 pairs, but I’m sure there are larger quantities to purchase. WANDER BEAUTY - Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks

This skincare brand is so underrated. I was a bit hesitant about purchasing this but I’ve heard great reviews. I finally decided to get this and wow I should’ve gotten this a while ago. I’ve used all these for about a week now it’s been really gentle and moisturizing on my skin. Foam around clarifying daily cleanser: this surprised me. It has no scent whatsoever! The foam is really fluffy and feels like a cloud on your face. It’s super gentle, and because it’s doesn’t feel like a typical cleanser I thought it wasn’t working. The foam basically dissolves on your skin and doesn’t strip out my oil. It doesn’t dry out my skin and feels great on my oily and dry areas. iNNBEAUTY PROJECT - Foam Around Clarifying Daily Cleanser Next level no bs moisturizer: the packaging is great, all I have to do is squeeze it out and not worry about putting my fingers in the moisturizer. It has a slight thickness to it that feels amazing. It has a slight oat scent to me. It doesn’t leave my face oily and sticky. This has been one of my favorites and is in my top 5 fave moisturizers. It feels like a basic moisturizer and that’s what we really need sometimes. iNNBEAUTY PROJECT - Next Level Daily Moisturizer Power up dual phase setting mist: it feels nice on the skin. I use this before and after makeup. It feels like your typical refreshing and cooling mist. No complains here. iNNBEAUTY PROJECT - Power Up Dual-Phase Face Mist Glaze #1 lip oil: I love this lip oil. It smells and tastes like an apple 🍎. It gives my lips a little bit of a tint and feels amazing. I love that this gives my lip a slight plumping effect. The applicator is really nice and something I don’t see often. It’s kinda big in a good way, it helps apply the right amount of lip oil and feels extremely soft. iNNBEAUTY PROJECT - Glaze #1 lip oil Electrifying lightning bolt eye mask: I got a set of 4 and these are super cute. They feel nice on the skin. If my eyes are a bit puffy or dull I put them in the fridge. They feel refreshing. iNNBEAUTY PROJECT - Electrify Lightening Bolt Eye Mask

iNNBEAUTY FAV OR MEH?
iNNBEAUTY is total vibes inside and out! It’s definitely a FAV!! I was first drawn to iNNBEAUTY due to the unique and bright packaging. After looking into their products I decided to buy a set for $50 and it came with everything you see above. I’ve still yet to try the peel off mask and eye patches, but I really love everything else. iNNBEAUTY PROJECT has a special Even out complex to help smooth out texture and skin tone. This brand is vegan and cruelty free. My experience has been nothing but great. I really love the foaming cleanser! I’m actually almost done with it. I have noticed less texture and a more even complexion since I started using these products. My skin is dry and sensitive, fortunately none of iNNBEAUTY products bothered my skin! iNNBEAUTY IS A FAV👍🏽🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 iNNBEAUTY PROJECT - Foam Around Clarifying Daily Cleanser As of right now, this is my 2nd favorite cleanser. It’s great to get all the yuck off of your face after a long day. + foaming cleanser that doesn’t strip the skin + dissolves makeup (still use this with a double cleanse) + maintains moisture and doesn’t disrupt the skin barrier. + for all skin types. Great for acne. + contains Salicylic acid to deep clean pores. + Glycolic, Lactic, and Gluconolactone Acid Blend improve skin tone, texture, and clarity. + Green Coffee Bean Extract helps inflammation and protect from free-radical damage. + other ingredients include Niacinamide and Bilberry Extract to brighten. + contains the iNNBEAUTY Even out complex to help with tone, texture, and dull skin. $22 for 3.4 fl oz - it has lasted me 3+ months - may not be the best cleanser for extra dry skin. iNNBEAUTY PROJECT - Next Level Daily Moisturizer This is a pretty light moisturizer. I will say it’s taken me many uses to like it, I did not like it upon the first few uses. I think my skin was too dry to see good results. + squeeze tube for easy application and great for keeping germs and bacteria out. + light weight lotion type texture. + doesn’t leave you greasy or oily, just adds a dewy finish. + also includes Even Out Complex to work on texture, tone and dullness. + pH balanced. Clinically proven to hydrate skin for 72hrs. + includes Niacinamide, Apple & Mango extract, Ribose, Plant based hydration complex, and Bilberry Extract. - very fragrances, but smells really good. Citrus and floral scent. It does dissipate after moisturizer is rubbed in - I would pick something mor hydrating if you have very dry skin. $28 for 1.7 fl oz - a lot comes out of the tube, so gently squeeze product out so you don’t waste it. Have you tried iNNBEAUTY before? What’s your favorite skincare brand?

GOOD MOLECULES - Caffeine Energizing Hydrogel Eye Patches I’ve been using these patches a couple times a week. I have genetic dark circles. Nothing I do will get rid of them but I try and minimize them the best that I can. I was thrilled to test out these caffeine eye patches when good molecules sent them to me. They’re drenched in serum which is nice, I’ve tried some that were very dry. They feel cooling and calming on my skin. I did notice I had a hard time positioning them and getting them to stay but that could just be user error. My under eyes appear plump, hydrated and brighter after use. The brighter effect is really just temporary from the caffeine so if you’re looking for a cure for genetic dark circles this will NOT fix them but they can still help the under eye area look rejuvenated. If you have dark circles just from lack of sleep or being tired these actually could be great for you due to the stimulating caffeine. Over All I do enjoy these!

These Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels are hands down my fave! I love eye masks and use them regularly since they instantly make me look less like a zombie. Lol. 🧟‍♀️ I prefer these because they adhere really well & aren’t overly saturated with product. These contain peptides & botanicals to increase blood flow & de-puff. I place them in my skincare fridge before I use them so they’re extra cold. 🥶 I wear them whenever my eyes need TLC. They’re great for puffiness & dark circles. My mom likes to use them to target wrinkles. They feel so soothing & get the job done in 10 minutes. 🙌🏾 I usually get the travel pack of these which comes with 4 pairs for $17.50. It’s a good price for how well they work. I highly recommend giving these a try! 👍🏾 skyn ICELAND - Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels

Wander baggage claim gold eye masks are individually packaged eye masks that are targeted to reduce dark circles by brightening and hydrating your under eye. The patches have hyaluronic acid to hydrate and get rid of fine lines while the aloe leaf and lavender help soothe and cool. The eye masks have a foily feel to them and have a good amount of serum product so it sticks to your skin quite well. I have used these twice now for the past two weeks and am always happy with my results. My under eyes look brighter right after removal which makes me look more awake. These are like most eye masks that I have used except they do stick to my skin far better than the jelly like textured ones do. That for me is a plus. They are $25 for a six pack so they can be a little pricey. I would recommend these for people who travel a lot because they are small and easy to use. For me I will probably look at other options that are a little cheaper. My biggest draw is how hydrating they are and how easy they stay on my face. I would give them a 4 out of 5 with the only drawback being their price point. WANDER BEAUTY - Baggage Claim Rose Gold Eye Masks

The Herbal Dynamics Mango & Green Tea Firming Eye Mask is marketed as an eye mask that helps reduce the appearance of dark circles with green tea and caffeine, as apple and mango extracts calm and soothe puffiness. As mentioned above, it targets the concerns of: dark circles, dryness and dullness. The texture is BEAUTIFUL, with it being very creamy and glimmering in the light. It smells like Mango's too which is a big plus. I was gifted this product from the brand back in July, and was really excited to try it since I suffer from both dark and dry under eyes. Overall, I really like this mask! I love using this when i'm tired (or.... hungover lol) since it really brings my under eye area back to life. It helps immensely with dark circles and even adds a good amount of hydration. I would definitely recommend this product to others since it's very affordable ($20) and contains some really great natural ingredients like: green tea extract, mango butter, caffeine and apple extract. It's also very low maintenance since you only need to leave it on for 3 minutes, and then can remove with a damp cloth, making it perfect to use quickly before a night out. I do wish it was something i could leave on overnight and let sink it, since i feel like I would just use it more if that were the case, but it still is easy to use and works! Overall would rate this 4/5. Herbal Dynamics Beauty - MANGO & GREEN TEA FIRMING EYE MASK

I have never used an eye mask like this before! The Herbal Dynamics Beauty - MANGO & GREEN TEA FIRMING EYE MASK spreads on like a dream, improves my fine lines and helps plump up my under eye in the mornings and before events. Claims: — reduce the appearance of dark circles with green tea and caffeine — apple and mango extracts calm and soothe puffiness — nourishing mango butter and phospholipids hydrate the delicate eye area for a youthful and fresh appearance — Hydrates and softens delicate eye-area skin. — Soothes water retention and puffiness for fresh, awake appearance Notable Ingredients — green tea — mango — Apple — caffeine My thoughts: — this is a really cool product; I’ve never used an eye mask in cream form, only patches! — I noticed plump undereye when using this! and VERY hydrated 🎉 — doesn’t give me millia and helps reduce dark circles a bit. — $20 is a STEAL for this I think, as it lasts a long time and I don’t use it a ton (maybe 1x a week) — 5/5
