Jokes aside though the skin around my eyes can often look a little tired and I get blue/purple dark circles so I need all the help I can get.
I have been testing these eye patches from French brand Institut Esthederm. A box gives you 10 sachets of 2 patches.
Beware these are not cheap at £47.00 however I would probably spend £4.70 on a sachet of these if I could get them individually so remember this when you reluctantly hand over the cash!
Each sachet is a soft fabric style patch that is infused with a moisturising balmy lotion.
They are extra large so that you can position them close to the inner edge and they will stretch right up past the outer edge covering a good inch all the way round.
Once on and smoothed down they stay put. You can walk around the house and forget they are there for 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes peel them off and massage in any remaining product.
The brand claims the skin around the eye will be regenerated, lifted and firmed and that the aging process will be slowed down.
I would agree that the skin around my eyes is definitely firmed and feels super tight. The moisturising balm has helped plum the skin and I have a glow around the skin of my eyes.
My dark circles are still there however the radiance left by the pads has made them appear softer and lighter.
If this is one of your problem areas then I would invest and use them at times when you feel like you need a little pick me up or for an important event.
