Being a huge fan of sheet masks, the next step to venture into was of course the similar equivalent for eyes. Seeing a tonne of bloggers so into collagen patches, I really thought that wouldn't necessarily be something my eyes needed. I am an obsessive computer user and am always literally found glued to it. My sister always tells me if I like to work so much, I should have become an investment banker hah! But I like my Marketing jobs a bit too much. Anyhoo, I thought I needed something that was hydrating, refreshing with a teensy bit of firming properties whacked in as I do tend to get a bunch of fine lines around the eye area.
In came the DHC Revitalising Moisture Strips. DHC is an Asian brand I believe and make fuss-free yet effective skincare, much like in the line of Muji. I quite like the fact that these are the adhesive kinds as you don't have to go around fixing them when they slip off. Having said that, I know many people wouldn't prefer an adhesive eye mask so if you're one of them, stick to the collagen option.
I felt this was moderately moisturising, but seemed to help more with dark circles, puffiness and eye bags. It also seemed to have a nice tightening action, depending on how long you left it on, 30 minutes or one whole night. It contains a tonne of ingredients that are good for brightening the under eye area, all stuffed into one little adhesive eye patch.
A lovely option for those of us who like to multi task. Slap it on during an at-home movie session, whilst doing your hair in the morning, or after a long day at work. Albeit not an anti-ageing, mature skin product, I feel this would benefit young skin better that suffers from tiredness, fatigue and dehydration.
For £6.95, I wouldn't ask for more.
