Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels: Review

I used to not be an eye gel or eye patch person. I found them so overpriced for a one time throw away use. Yes I always loved how they gave instant results in combination with the cooling de-puffing effect. Someone told me to try skyn ICELAND Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels. They’re more reasonably priced than some others at 8 pairs for $30 (still overpriced). That’s about $2 an eye or $4 for every use. Not cheap in general. Details per Dermstore:

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.

Most of these eye patches I try are more serum like or watery and slide around. These skyn patches are actually a hydrating gel that miraculously stays put for the whole wearing time. They don’t slide around. They’re cooling and hydrating to some degree like an eye patch generally is. They do de-puff, firm and help reduce lines as promised. The effects are temporary as is with all eye patches. To be expected and not a deal breaker. I imagine if you used these every night you would see a more permanent line reducing effect from the Hexapeptides, but no one can afford that. Weekly use at most. These are perfect before a night out, photo session or for that moment of self-care/pampering most of us tend to use things like this for.

I love that these are more affordable than others and don’t slide around. They come packaged in single serve pairs. You will get an instant de-puffing, cooling & firming effect from these. Just don’t expect long lasting miracles. I would repurchase these to keep them around for masking.
