Perhaps, it’s the increased digital exposure – think working everyday in front of blue-light emitting screens, Netflix 24/7, endless Zoom calls and interrupted sleep – that our eyes are in desperate need of restorative eye patches.
Accordingly, whether you’re sleep deprived, tech-addict or just generally exhausted, we rounded up the formulas to revitalize tired eyes.
Here’s to mending all of your under-eye woes (while simultaneously staying comfy in your stay-home OOTD)!
Chanel Le Lift Firming- Anti-Wrinkle Flash Eye Revitalizer
We’re happy to make any bag Chanel, including the ones under the eyes. Flash Eye Revitalizer renews your eyes in two powerful steps. First, the roll-on loads anti-aging serum enriched with Vitamin C complex. Second, the serum is sealed under revitalising patches. The result? Immediate revitalization and radiance. The pack has ten sets of two hydrogel patches and we can’t think of a better investment!
Anne Semonin Express Radiance Ice Cubes
A cold brew, but for your eyes. Anne Semonin’s ice cubes pack Marine Spring Water, red seaweed and evening primrose oil to hydrate and revitalise. In addition, the icy concoction jams azelaic acid, which absorbs excess sebum and creates a matte finish. To be kept in the freezer and applied ice cold, the cubes improve elasticity and boost radiance. If you’re ahead of a big event (aka party via Zoom), or perhaps feeling jetlag after a (socially-distanced) flight, these are your best allies for bright, radiant and firm skin.
H. Hazel Honest Hazel Eye Gels
Refresh your eyes with cactus collagen, aloe vera, arbutin, and vitamin C and E – in just 15 minutes. Made with nature’s powerful ingredients, the soothing eye gels reduces puffiness, brightens dark circles and firms the delicate skin under the eyes. (Hot) Tip: Keep them in the fridge for an extra cooling sensation.
Erno Laszlo Multi-Task Eye Serum Mask
Get multi-tasking! The silky, serum-infused hydrogel eye mask teams algae extract, Vitamin B3, amino acids and allantoin to restore weary eyes. It firms, brightens, de-puffs and also calms sensitive skin. PS: Dr. Erno Laszlo’s star-studded clientele included the likes of Marilyn Monroe!
Patchology FlashPatch Rejuvenating Eye Gels 30 Pairs
Patchology’s cooling eye gels pack a good night’s sleep for well-rested eyes. Portulaca oleracea extract – rich in Vitamin C and essential Omega3 fatty acids – brightens the under eye while hydrolyzed collagen tones and hydrates the skin. It’s also boosted with centella asiatica, which encourages collagen synthesis while inhibiting skin inflammation. Au revoir tired eyes!
Too Cool For School Cocout Oil Serum Eye Patch
Instant surge of hydration paired with some brightening action? Count us in! The hydrogel mask is is an emulsion of coconut water and coconut oil with extracts of sea buckthorn and acai palm to brighten dull skin. Niacinamide (a form of vitamin B-3) and adenosine are also conjoined to minimize wrinkles. Formulated without parabens, sulfates, and mineral oil, it’s a no-brainer.
Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hydra-Gel Eye Patches
Cloudy day? Quite literally. The cooling eye patches contain “pure plumping water vapor” drawn from the clouds. Showered in ceramide NP, collagen, and marshmallow root extract to smooth fine lines, drops of caffeine help to de-puff and arnica reduces dark circles. Moreover, you also get 30 pairs of (fragrance free) eye patches – that’s one for every day of the month, if you like.
+1: EyeJust Blue Light Blocking Screen Protector
It’s hard not to eye our screens. From work e-mails to catching up on our favourite shows on Netflix… But we think we might just have the solution. Courtesy of EyeJust’s technical four-layer screen protector, that is. Its smudge-resistant tempered glass not only protects your screen from scratching, but it blocks the blue lights, which is exactly what we need. Especially before bed!
