Under Eye Patches; Do they Work?

Monday 07th Feb 2022 |

The skin under the eyes is much more delicate than the rest of the face, so it’s more susceptible to fine lines and puffiness. Long working hours, changes in temperature, and lack of sleep can all affect our skin, especially this area.

Eye patches can help to alleviate dark circles and fine lines by adding an intense surge of moisture to this delicate area, so it could be worth considering adding them to your skincare regime as well as your regular eye cream.

We have rounded up a selection of the best under-eye patches to help you stay fresh-faced, bright-eyed, and bushy-tailed!

FlashPatch Illuminating Eye Gels 

The FlashPatch Illuminating Eye Gels are designed to deeply soothe and revitalise delicate skin. Making dark circles a thing of the past, vitamin C works to even and brighten your contours while softening fine lines; green tea extract minimises the appearance of dark circles by improving circulation; antioxidant mulberry extract is a natural brightening agent, and pearlescent minerals give an instant radiant glow. Pack of 5 available to buy for £14.
