I love face masks and I enjoy trying out new products to see what works best for me. I am 29 years old and I’ve been using anti-wrinkle cream since high school but I love to laugh and smile a lot so unfortunately I have lines around my eyes (the ONLY downside to smiling/laughing). I am not prepared to stop laughing so I decided to try out skin republic’s collagen under eye patches. You can get them at dischemclickstakealot or in store at selected  Edgars & RedSquare stores. (They go for about R50 – R55 per pack with three applications per pack).

I’ve tried these eye patches twice already and I love it. They smell amazing and the application is so easy with clear instructions on the back of the packet. You just apply, relax for 30 minutes and voila!. There is a visible improvement in the appearance of the fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and the patches definitely reduces puffiness. My eyes felt a cooling and soothing sensation and looked brighter and clear.

I will use these eye patches again for sure to pamper my tired eyes and to try and stop the effects of my eagerness to laugh and smile!!! 😉

Please comment down below with your favorite skincare products/masks so that I can try them out. Xxx
