Eye slices anyone?

I am the best person perhaps to try out a soothing product for the eyes as I have constantly tired, puffy, red and wrinkly eyes! You name it, I have it.

So I immediately agreed to trying out Eye Slices.

These are treatment pads to relax your eyes in just 5 minutes! "eyeSlices are innovative eye treatment pads that combine the natural essence of nature with bio-innovation to bring about a solution to all common eye concerns. These dermal delivery eye masks reduce the appearance of red eyes, dark circles under eyes, tired eyes, wrinkles and puffy eyes within 5 minutes of use."

They have different eye pads to treat a different purpose. I chose the iCandy Eyes pack and the Legendary Eyes pack.

The Legendary Eyes Slices (in green below) is especially triggered to reduce puffy eyes and dark circles. "Concentrated extracts of the Suma root, Muira Puma and White Lily work together to help reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles by increasing luminosity and vitality."

I did not quite like this one to be honest because I felt it did not do much for my eyes. It did not feel as cool as a cucumber slice would have. It did however reduce the redness in my eyes in those 5 minutes which is something I liked.

Also, I did not receive a case to store it in, may be because it is a sample pack hence the green eye pad shrunk and hardened in a day. But the actual ones that you buy come with a storage case, so make sure you store them properly.

The iCandyeyes is targeted towards wrinkles and I particularly have deep set wrinkles near my eye area. "Get your beauty sleep within 5 minutes...close your eyes, relax, soak away the effects of life's heavy demands & visualise being forever young in body & mind. The regenerative and protective extracts of English Plantain assists the enhancement of collagen synthesis to help reduce the appearance of fine lines. Oak Apple gently firms the skin whilst valuable minerals from Millet extract nourish and strengthen the skin."

I enjoyed using this one, as it did not dry up even without a case, I kept it in the plastic container it came with and it stayed fine.

It applied really nice and moist on the eyes and provided a cooling sensation without keeping in the fridge! I found it also slightly tightened the area around my eyes and made it look healthier and plump. So it does really work for what it says. I would use this particular eye pad again!

Overall, why better than cucumber?

Because they come out cool even without the fridge, they last up to 10 uses, are very convenient to use, effective results in a couple of minutes plus they contour to your eye shape, so no hassle of balancing cucumber slices on the eyes anymore!

I've never heard of anything like these. I'm definitely interested in the Legendary Eyes for dark circles because no matter what, I can't get rid of them! I'm definitely gonna check these out. Great review! I'm sure I would have never come across these without this post.
