An eye mask is a skincare essential for any girl that has dark circles because they temporarily brighten, awaken and moisturize your delicate eye area. In other words, your eyes will look extra perky right after using them. My current favorite are from a brand called Masquelogy. The product is called Revitalizing Eye Gel. They are like a cup of coffee for my eyes.
P.S: In case you're wondering, Michelle Phan swears by these eye patches by Biore. You can purchase them online at Amazon.com
These eye masks have strong staying power which means you don't have to lay down while wearing them. You could probably walk out in public with these on (beware: people might give you strange looks), and they wouldn't fall off.
These masks contain tons of good for your skin ingredients such as collagen, algae and caviar.
After 20 minutes, your under eye area will look brighter and more awake which means you might not even need any concealer.
Not a long-term solution to dark circles. I still have to wear eye cream twice a day.
Verdict: These are amazing for those times in your life when you want to look extra awake and put together. A first date, a girls night out, the prom, a fancy dinner or for those days when you don't want to show up to work looking like a zombie.
Price:$30.00 USD for a pack of 3 masks.
