Another month another eye patch. You know how I love my eye patches! I get really hot, uncomfortable eyes when I work at the computer all day and so I find them invaluable – so long as they’re the type that sit underneath the eye and don’t completely cover it! (I do have more than one eye, by the way – not sure why I used the singular rather than the plural. It’s working in fashion that does that, you know: “well, darling, I’d team a black shoe with a blue jean…”)
I digress. Thalgo’s Hyaluronic Eye Patch Masks are this month’s test, and they’re rather good. Really hydrating, really cooling without any stickiness or greasy residue. But the best thing about them? They are virtually invisible! I have included a photograph below – I’m actually wearing the patches! Can you see them? As they dry they become a little more noticeable, but you could get away easily with popping these on at work and having a fifteen minute eye treatment. If you’re at all self-conscious about In-Flight beauty routines, these would be a great addition to your travel bag. I answered the front door in mine and the postman didn’t bat an eyelid. (Mind you, the things I’ve answered the door in..)
My most sincere apologies for this photograph, by the way – I didn’t make any effort whatsoever. I know that I should probably perpetuate some kind of idea that I’m 24/7 glamorous, but it’s too much like hard work! Also, because you can’t see my hairline in this photo, do you not think that my head looks a bit like a potato?
Thalgo Hyaluronic Patches cost £34 for eight treatments (8 pairs of masks) so they’re not cheap, but they really are an instant moisture-injection. They take about twenty minutes to fully dry up, so you could easily put them on in the bath as your main face mask gets to work. I actually fell asleep in some too – no problem at all, as they just shrivelled up and dropped off when they had dried! Nice! You can find them at SalonSkincare.com
