Instead of getting upset, I usually am not shy to admit why I don't sleep well and that I have never neglected my eyes. Eye mask is part of my beauty regime (La Colline Eye Mask), concealer is a must (Bobbi Brown Cream Concealer) and this Skinlite Cooling Cucumber Pads is the latest.
Priced at RM15.00, these cooling cucumber pads (from Korea) are soft pads pre-moistened with real cucumber and other soothing ingredients, specially designed to rest atop your eyelids and face as you lie back and relax. Touted to reduce puffiness and the appearance of dark circles under the eyes, you can also use the pads for your cheeks and other face areas. The 24 round pads in the round plastic container looks like cucumber slices and there is a simple tweezer on top of the plastic cover to pick up them up. For additional cooling sensation, store the container in the fridge.
To use, cleanse your face, place one pad on each eye-lid, sit back and relax. Remove pads after 10 to 15 minutes and tap the clear fluid/residue gently around your eye area.
Having used the pads for a month now (once a week), sad to say, except to soothe, moisturise and refresh my eyes, they didn't do any justice to the dark circles, Not even a bit of lightening, seriously, real cucumber slices I think would be better. Perhaps it is a convenient product in the sense that if cucumber is not available at home and you are in crisis to slightly nourish your eyes, you may consider buying. I don't think I will repurchase again but instead of letting the pads go to waste,well, using up logically should be it.
