Weekends are a great time to try beauty treatments because when you’re at home there are usually no time constraints and you can try several treatments throughout the day. I know that I love my beauty treatment weekends and I really do look forward to trying out some new products. One type of product that I’m always on the lookout for are products that can can help de-puff my eyes and fade dark under eye circles.
While at Barney’s I received a sample of Sue Devitt’s Microquatic Marine Crystal Collagen Eye Masque which is a part of their Fall 2011 beauty collection. These marine collagen eye swirls were developed to brighten the overall look of your eyes as well as to heal and hydrate. So I decided to give them a try because they contain hyaluronic acid is a great anti-aging skin care ingredient. These mini eye masks not only contain hyaluronic acid but hey are also infused with micronized marine crystal collagen and seaweed extract, all of which help to stimulate collagen production and reduce the appearance of fine lines over time.
The mask is applied to the eye area right out of the package and directly under the eye for 10-15 minutes. I usually like to place my eye masks in the refrigerator to make them extra cold but in this case I didn’t. However when I applied the mask to my eye if felt quite chilled right out of the package! These little eye swirls are SUPER flexible and soft so you can easily contour them around your eye. It felt amazing to put my head back and relax for a few moments while my eyes began to de-puff. They are a bit slick and can move around a bit so I had to lay back and not move around! I didn’t notice much fading in my dark circles BUT the puffiness was noticeably better!
These collagen eye masques give deliver serious hydration! Not only did I notice less swelling but my under eye area was well moisturized. These are the perfect item to throw in your bag when you’re on a long flight. Flying tends to try out your skin and this is the perfect post-flight treatment that takes just a few minutes but will leaving you feeling extremely refreshed!
