Who wakes up with puffy eyes, dark circles, wrinkles and creases that you swore weren't there the night before? That is me, just about everyday. My eyes are puffy by nature I swear. If I didn't get enough sleep or had cried the night before, they look even worse. My puffiness happens below my eyes and it sure isn't pretty. When I heard about this new Le Métier de Beauté Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo, I was very interested in trying it. The line is fancy schmancy, and even though I haven't tried any of their skin care yet, I have heard such great things.
This Eye Mask was specifically designed to give eyes an "instant" refresher as it is packed with some pretty strong hydrating actives that work and work fast - in just 15 minutes in fact. The seaweed-based formula is infused into these gel-like "patches" that you place directly under the eyes. They cover the entire under eye area and the top of the cheekbone, where my puffiness occurs.
Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo adheres to the undereye area so you can use them anywhere and are clear so you can wear them anytime. I like to place the mask under my eyes right before I dry and curl my hair. They stayed firmly in place as I moved around, even when I bent over to blow the underside of my hair. How great is that? It was like I had a little spa treatment when I was doing something I do every day. They are clear so you could even put them on and bring the kids to school or place them under your eyes right after the gym as you drive home.
My experience in using the eye mask was nothing short of amazing. When I removed the mask from beneath my eyes, I was amazed at how firm and smooth and NOT PUFFY my undereye area was. My cross hatching seemed to be gone for the time being as the lines were hydrated and plumped up so they were barely visible. Amazing! (I had to say it again.)
This is a mask I would love to use every day, and it can be used every day for the ultimate benefit. You can even place the masks in the refrigerator for 20 minutes before applying for an extra cooling effect that would help puffiness even more. Think how great that would be in the summer. It is a pretty expensive treatment; a set of 8 costs $150, and unlike many similar products, each mask is for one time use only. I think I will reserve using them for special occasions when I want to look my very best
