Review: Etude House Collagen Eye Patch

Hello~! I've gotten these cute little eye masks from my previous haul, and it's from Etude House!
It's a collagen eye mask, so it's good for sagging under the eyes. I have really terrible eye bags, especially under my left eye for some reason. Some days I look like this -> e.o when I smile lol. So I really wanted to try this, and see if it'll relive my bags just a bit!

I got 5 pairs, and they came in individual packets.


The packet has a really cute design of a girl!

The back.

There's English instructions too! The active ingredients, also includes vitamins and green tea extracts besides collagen, which I was pleasantly surprised to find.

The eye masks were stored in a plastic container. I really like this, since the serum does not spill everywhere in the pouch, and there's also less wasting of the serum.

It's covered with a flap. I initially thought there was only one eye patch in it, but they were actually very thin, and stuck together.

Eye patched :D

Each patch is made of 2 layers. This is the outer layer, a thin plastic.

The cottony inner layer.


I have used this patch twice, and it definitely has immediate results! I used these at night times, and that's when my eye bags are the most prominent, and it really does decrease the puffiness and lines under my eyes when I smile. However, the next day my eyes would return to its usual bagginess. I didn't expect it would have a long term affect after a couple of uses anyways. However, after long term use it may just permanently reduce eye bags, only time will tell. Also, seeing as it reduces eye bags immediately, I would recommend using this in the mornings, so the effect may last through the day, instead of just sleeping through it right after lol.

The patches feels nice and soft on my eyes, and the size is quite large too and covers more than just the under eye bags.

The package says to leave on for 15-20 minutes, but I usually leave it on until it's totally absorbed and dry, which is around 30 minutes. I also apply the extra serum left in the container to the rest of my face, so they get some extra collagen too. ^o^

I don't think I detected any scent to this, which I like, since the less chemicals the better, especially around the sensitive eye areas.

The only minor downside to this is it leaves a stickiness behind, which I find a lot of sheet masks do. It's a bit annoying, since I have to wash my face again, but it's no biggie.

Overall, I really like this eye patch! Would recommend this to anyone that have eye bags, and would like immediate reduction to them in just 15-30 minutes! From e_e to o_o to ^_^!

Pros
  • Immediate de-puffing results.
  • No scent.
  • Easy to use.
  • Nice packaging/container
Cons
  • Sticky afterwards

Hope you've enjoyed this review!

  12. Hi, I tired this first time and I found there are 2 patches inside but one is smooth and mother one is not smooth. Is it usable for both side? Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  13. hmm, that's interesting, I guess as long as they are the serum on the patches is in contact with skin when applied it should work the same.:)

    ReplyDelete
  14. after using the eye patch should you wash your face?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yes, sometimes there is some sticky residue, so i just rinse it off. :)
