Instead of using the well-known cold spoon mehtod, why not try an hydrogel eye patch that comes with many extra benefits such as brighter, smoother & better-looking skin? If you like the cooling effect, you can store your under-eye masks in the fridge as well, however their gel formula actually feels very soothing by itself!
Pureheal's Ginseng Berry Eye Lift Patch is a wonderful hydrogel under-eye mask that contains ginseng berry extract to nourish lifeless and tired skin around the eye area.
It's luxorious packaging might remind you of a face cream more than an eye patch, but it's actually a really clever way of storing 60 eye masks in one jar! They’re packed tightly and soaked in serum.
Hydrogel acts like a thirsty sponge, sopping up serum and supercharging skin with all of the gloopy goodness that would otherwise go to waste by pooling in the packet of your conventional cotton mask. So hydrogel eye masks work great for delivering actives deeply into skin.
How to use: After cleansing and applying toner, place the patches below the eyes or around mouth using the spatula which is inside the lid. Leave on for 20-30 min. To finish apply your face cream or essence.

Ginseng Berry Extract - has potential in lightening and brightening skin, helping to inhibit the production of melanin, which gives skin its color, and can protect skin from sun damage.
Squalane - non-greasy emollient that helps to increase the penetration of other skin care ingredients.
Betaine - an amino acid that can temporarily decrease the depth of wrinkles, giving the face a much smoother appearance.
Adenosine - improves skin cell repair and renewal.
The product also includes many fruit extracts that offer antioxidant, whitening & anti-wrinkle capabilities. Another good thing is that it doesn't contain alcohol.
I like them. They're a bit slippery & hard to apply, but feel great and very soothing once they set. All the extra serum on my face feels very moisturizing & refreshing too.
However, it is important to use a face cream or essence after removing these eye patches as they leave a residue that can otherwise start peeling off after a few hours. I chose to blend it out with my Pureheal's Propolis Ampoule and my skin felt super tight & moist afterwards.
Where to buy: This Ginseng Berry Eye Lift Patch is a bit pricey compared to other similar products. It's original price on pureheals.com is 54,000 won ($46). However, on ebay it's sold for $73. I couldn't find it sold anywhere else, so it might be better to get it from Korea than online.
Final Verdict: this eye patch does help to tighten up the skin around your eyes as well as relax the blood vessels, thus offer relief to puffy and tired eyes.
