Versed Emergency Eye Mask
This product is marketed as an emergency eye mask for when you don’t get enough sleep, or your eye bags are just noticeable. It targets the delicate skin around the eyes, nourishing and hydrating the skin while also cooling and depuffing. It has a gel texture that is cooling as you pat it into your skin. I have been using this for months now and I absolutely LOVE this product. It was the first product I tried from Versed and I’m hooked. I’ve always struggled with dry under eyes and this makes such a difference. I use this almost every day. It’s super hydrating, and it definitely is brightening too. I recommend this to anyone that I can! It’s $18, and you need the tiniest pea size amount so you’ll definitely get your moneys worth. It’s a 5/5 from me!

No Dark Circles, But No 👎🏽
As far as eye products go the opinions are varied and usually fierce. I’m not really for or against them I just see what gives me results. In my opinion this is a solid caffeine eye cream. Keeps dark circles and puffiness at bay. I was honestly so surprised how well it made me look more awake and bright eyed than I really was. The only thing I’m not crazy about is my eye area feels dry when I use this overnight. It’s billed as being moisturizing, but for me it’s just the opposite. So I make sure I tap in a bit of moisturizer over it. And still after prolonged use my eyes became very dry, red and irritated. I love to keep it chilled in my beauty fridge for a cooling effect when I apply it. So while I do like this, but it won’t be a repurchase for me. The results from the caffeine are nice, but I would prefer something that was much more hydrating especially heading into the cold winter months.
Skincare on a Budget: Best Drugstore Eye Creams
Eye creams are always pretty pricey, but for some of us they can be a necessity. They can be good for students like me that pull all-nighters studying or doing homework often then wake up with dark circles and tired eyes. They can also be good for puffiness. These are the best drugstore eye creams that are very effective. e.l.f. - CBD Eye Cream This product has a lightweight creamy gel texture that absorbs very quickly and leaves the under eye area feeling soft. The under eye area is very delicate so it’s really good that this product is fragrance-free. This product’s star ingredient cannabidiol (CBD) soothes skin and reduces inflammation. -Formula includes three forms of peptides which stimulates the skin to produce collagen for more firm and younger looking skin. -Contains allantoin and aloe, very soothing ingredients. -Also contains hyaluronic acid for plumping and panthenol which is a humectant. CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream CeraVe comes through once again, but this time with their eye cream. Like their other products, this one contains three ceramides which are great anti-aging ingredients. It also contains plumping hyaluronic acid along with niacinamide to brighten skin and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. -It also contains soothing and hydrating ingredients such as aloe, almond oil, jojoba esters, and glycerin. -It is very inexpensive seeing as it retails for $12.99. VERSED - THE FIX Emergency Eye Mask The texture of this product has a slightly thick gel consistency that applies easily. It dries somewhat quickly, but since it has a thick texture, it’s better to use at night. The gel has a cooling effect but this isn’t due to any potentially irritating, cooling ingredients like menthol. -This is also very different from other products since it is a mask that is meant for the eye area. -Contains cucumber which is great for its hydrating and antioxidant abilities. -Includes two peptides which is helpful for fine lines around the eyes and such. -Non-fragrant rosehip oil, moisturizing pantheol, vitamin C, and two forms of Vitamin E are included which help strengthen the eye area. -Caffeine is included which can help soothe redness, but there isn’t much research that proves it can help puffy eyes. bliss - Eye Do All Things Eye Gel This is a great product from bliss that has a lightweight gel texture. The gel is very moisturizing but not too heavy and it absorbs very quickly with a light dewy finish. The formula has great skin replenishing ingredients such as squalane, glycerin, and panthenol. -The formula also contains three forms of peptides for its anti-aging benefits. -Antioxidants in the forms of vitamin E and C work to protect skin and aid in brightening the under eye area. -Caffeine is included which can help soothe redness, but there isn’t much research that proves it can help puffy eyes. Always apply SPF!!!
Jet Lag Mask
Another mask that I’m absolutely loving is Jet Lag. I bought this product years ago, and I thought it gave me a reaction, so I stopped using it. Years later, i repurchased! I wanted to give it another chance. And MAN do I love it. It’s such an essential. I can’t imagine my life without it. I love using it as eye cream. It helps with my puffy eyes and gives the area so much hydration (especially when it’s left in my skincare fridge). My makeup sits on my face so much nicer when I apply Jet Lag Mask. Recently (ever since the Coronavirus), I haven’t wore makeup. So as my last step of my AM skincare routine, I apply a thick layer, and let it sink into my skin. It’s wonderful!

Caffeine for Tired Eyes ☕️
Despite being only 25 I suffer from very bad dark circles and fine lines under my eyes. They tend to get really puffy in the morning and even with the highest coverage concealer I can see the darkness poking through. No matter what I do I have a skin concern of very “tired looking” eyes in combination with my oily skin. Eye patches are one of my favorite “treat yourself” products to use. My little tip with eye patches is to put them on when you’re doing your eyeshadow in the morning. I love this because they work their magic while you’re blending and they act as a shadow shield to catch any fallout. Caffeine in skincare constricts the blood vessels to help reduce inflammation and puffiness. It tightens the skin to help reduce wrinkles while brightening the area. The GOOD MOLECULES - Caffeine Energizing Hydrogel Eye Patches are $18 and come with 30 pairs. They claim to brighten, hydrate, and reduce puffiness all with the help of caffeine. These are covered in serum which is nice but I do find they can slide down my face in the first few minutes if I’m actively doing something. I love the cooling effect they have on the skin. My under eyes do feel more hydrated and perked up whenever I use these. My problem with these is every time I use them the serum pills up when I put make up on top. No matter how much I pat in the serum when I go to apply my foundation/concealer it pills up because of the product underneath. Because of this these ended up not working out for me like I typically like to use eye patches. As much as I like them I don’t think I’d repurchase sadly. These are going to be exclusively for night time when I don’t have to worry about make up going over top. They do help my concern with “tired looking eyes” but they can’t serve me in the morning when I need them.

Eye mask and serum
I’ve been trying this eye mask for awhile now and although this is a mask I think I could also call it a serum . It’s an overnight treatment for under eyes and for someone who wears foundation a lot it helps with not settling in my under eye lines Using this before bed leaves my under eyes moisturized and more bright looking.i really like this product and especially the tool to apply it , it’s a ceramic ball and feels cool to your touch . The texture is Milky and light and absorbs quickly . I would and have recommend this product to others and I definitely think it’s worth the price !

Puffy under eyes? Try these ❄️
If you struggle with puffy eyes in the morning or right before a big event, these are great for you. Skyn Iceland’s cooling eye gels can also be kept in a skin care fridge to keep the cool! This will enhance the way they work 🙌🏼. skyn ICELAND Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels are easy-to-apply, under-eye gel pads work to firm, de-puff and reduce fine lines and wrinkles for younger-looking, revitalized eyes. Elastin promotes firmness while hexapeptide reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Ginkgo Biloba diminishes puffiness and antioxidant Co-Q10 neutralizes free radicals for a rejuvenated appearance. You can pop them on while you’re doing a face mask, or even by themselves in the morning or even at night. They truly are great and I would highly recommend! 💕 skyn ICELAND - Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels #eyegels #undereye #skyniceland #CherieCreator

serum + eye patched = a damn good product
PTR CUCUMBER DE-TOX HYDRA-GEL EYE PATCHES: (that’s a long name lol) •these eye patches are marketed as cooling, de-puffing, and hydrating treatments infused with cucumber and serum. •these are targeted to reduce the look of dark circles, hydrate the under eye area, and reduce puffiness and fine lines. •these patches are a hydra-gel component, so they’re a thick jelly-like feel. HONESTY: I have been loving these patches and noticed that after 1 time using these, my under eyes looked less puffy and felt hydrated. These also feel nice and cool when applied and I think I’m going to store them in the fridge to amplify the effects! •I like these because they work well and feel like they stay in place when I put them on. But, the price is quite steep for a full size container... $52 to be exact. I definitely wouldn’t repurchase a full size but the travel size is definitely worth it for $23 and you get a travel size moisturizer and with it!!! •I would definitely recommend trying out the set, it’s better for the price and this product really does work well! RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I’m giving these 4 out of 5 stars. They work great but I definitely think they’re over priced for a full size. So for that reason, they lost a star in my book!💫PETER THOMAS ROTH - Cucumber De-Tox Hydra-Gel Eye Patches

One of my favorite eye patches
pixi - DetoxifEYE Pixi claims these eye patches will instantly reduce under-eye puffiness & dark circles while moisturizing & soothing skin. Target concerns include dark circles, fine lines/wrinkles and dryness. These has a gel like texture that cools upon application. Essence is instantly absorbed into skin. But extra essence may run on face. $24 for 30 pairs. Buy them now! I absolutely love how these work for my undereyes! I have dry sensitive eyes prone to eczema and wanted more hydration to embrace the cold; so I tried this. After 15 mins of use, my skin looks smoother, more hydrated & more awake! Looks & feels like babies bottom! For less than a dollar a day, I can get skin like this?! Sign me up! I totally recommend these because these work! I’ve tried other eye patches and they did nothing comparable to these. Plus they are so pretty to look at too! Totally worth 5 stars and I highly recommend it!
