You probably am wondering what's with eye products and me. Don't be because my eyes are the first area which indicates my tiredness and fatigue. As shared before, I have issues sleeping though not as severe as it used to be. The hours I spent in front of my laptop also indirectly causes the tired appearance around my eyes. I don't want to sound vain but I don't feel comfortable looking tired. Whenever I am at a shopping mall, I frequent cosmetics shops and am on the lookout for eye products.
Sasa is one of my favorite stores because the beauty consultants are helpful and pleasant. As I was browsing throught the range of eye products, one of them suggested that I try the cooling cucumber pads, priced at RM15.00 for the 24 pieces of pads in a round container. To be honest, I was intrigued with the look alike cucumber-slice pads. That sort of triggered me to buy and find out the effects of the pads on my eyes.
I was told that the pads are pre-moistened with real cucumbers and other soothing ingredients to soothe tired and stressed eyes. These will also help to reduce puffiness and dark circles. I kept the container in my fridge. Back home after work, I cleaned my face, took out two pieces of the pad with the tweezers that came with the container.
I placed the pads on my eyes and waited for 15 mins. The cooling sensation and fragrance were pleasing to my eyes and nose. I removed the pads and tapped in the clear fluid gently around my eyes.
As claimed, indeed my eyes felt refreshed and soothed. However there was no difference in the dark circles even after my 4th time of using the pads. This is not a product for someone like me for I prefer an eye product more for my dark circles. I still have the balance in my fridge. Instead of wasting, I need to finish up the pads soon. I actually feel that real chilled cucumber slices will be cheaper and a better option if I need to refresh my eyes.
