It’s not even the holiday season yet, and I am already feeling the effects of the end-of-the-year craziness. Between wrapping up loose ends at work ahead of the upcoming breaks, all the back-to-back parties, spending hours staring at the computer screen shopping for Hannukkah and Christmas presents for everyone on my list, and everything in between, I’m beat. My skin is showing it, too—particularly, my under eyes. That’s where the Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Hydra-Gel Eye Patches have been coming in handy.
In general, I have very dark under circles. No amount of sleep can make them go away, and besides concealer, few eye products truly mask them as they promise to do. (FYI, even derms say there’s only so much an eye cream or gel can actually do!) Blame it on genetics. But when I pop on these Peter Thomas Roth under-eye patches first thing in the morning, all signs of puffiness, darkness, and tiredness instantly disappear.
So what makes them so special compared to others on the market? For starters, it’s the gel material. They feel beyond cooling when applied to the delicate skin area and are the perfect pick-me-up for when I look like I’ve been through the wringer. The eye gels are also jam-packed with a load of superstar ingredients that feel soothing and gentle on skin. There’s everyone’s-favorite hyaluronic acid, which adds a dose of hydration to the sensitive skin around my peepers, smooths away any lines, and delivers an eye-opening plumping effect, making me look fresh as a daisy. The masks are also infused with marshmallow root extract, which helps soften and soothe the area, as well as caffeine which works wonders at perking up puffiness and leaving behind a wide-awake look.
The best part of all? They don’t slip and slide down your face, so you can go about your morning business without a second thought. Though, I recommend wearing them while you’re still lounging in bed—they make the experience much more relaxing.
I’ve been using these particular patches for nearly a year already, and they make getting up in the mornings less dreadful and more seamless. In addition to the Hydra-Gel eye patches, Peter Thomas Roth also offers similar versions—such as the 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Hydra-Gel Eye Patches and Potent-C Power Brightening Hydra-Gel Eye Patches—that I am planning to try and hopefully add to my arsenal too sometime in the next year. I have no doubt they’ll be just as relaxing.
With that said, I’m going to leave you with a pro tip: Pop the eye patches in the fridge for an even extra cooling and refreshing feel. You’ll thank me later.
