Over the winter, I was offered a chance to test out the Patchology – Energizing eye patches. It’s a 3-step process where you can wear the patches for up to 12 hours straight (so ideally this would be done before bedtime, but sometimes when I’m home on weekends doing chores, I’ll rock ‘em around the apartment), and each set of patches can be reused up to 4 times. I’m sharing with you today my third experience with the patches.
Here’s my makeup-less face before and after wearing the patches for 7 hours:
The 3-step process is quite simple:
1. Wash/clean face
2. Apply activating gel to the under eye area and apply the energizing patches. This part was awesome because it felt like a light, tingly sensation under the eyes to help wake the skin up a bit. Not exactly the best thing to do right before bed, in my opinion, but not bad to do about 30 minutes before starting the pre-sleep routine.
3. Remove the patches and wipe skin clean. The kit comes with moistened wipes, so this part was easy!
As mentioned above, this post documents the third time I’ve used the kit. The eye patches do lose their “stickiness” with each use, but they are good for up to 4 treatments and I feel like my set will make it until number four. I definitely saw results after the first time using it. As someone who normally wakes up with really puffy eyes in the morning, these were perfect for days that I needed to look awake and refreshed. My skin is definitely less dry near the eye area than usual, which is awesome considering the harsh season changes.
Would I recommend the Patchology kit? Yes. It’s a bit pricier than most of the face care products I purchase ($75 for a kit of 12 treatments), but after seeing the results and breaking down the cost of each treatment (~$6 per treatment), I will definitely be adding this to my season-changing facial routine.
