Here at Influenster, we're all about bringing you the latest new beauty products and trends. But, we also want to share our open and honest reviews of products because ultimately, we're just like you! We love to play with the prettiest new eyeshadow palette or test run a bizarre new hair tool. This week, three of our Influenster staffers gave the nugg De-Puff Eye Masks a go. Read all about their experiences with the Friday morning must-have.
What it does: Six tiny tubes of caffeine-rich eye gel and 12 under eye masks come in this drugstore buy. Simply apply one tube fof the gel to your desired puffy areas and follow with water-saturated eye masks. (Refrigerate if desired for a cooling effect!) Let the patch sit under your eyes and soak up the gel for 20 minutes, then peel them off and massage in any remainder of product! It's that easy.
Why we tried it: Would it be enough to say, "Because it's Friday?" For any time when you're feeling just a little exhausted—and you're afraid it shows—these handy eye de-puffers are easy enough to apply and wear at your desk—like we did!
"I tried this product this morning as I've been traveling this past week and am super tired (and it showed!). I wet the strips as they suggest (which you should definitely do) and applied the cream. While applying I thought there was too much cream in the tube so I didn't use all of it, but over the 20 minutes I had it on, the cream was absorbed into my skin very quickly and I definitely should have applied the full amount. Once I removed, I noticed a difference in the skin under my eyes, it smoothed it out, and would definitely recommend! Can't wait to try and use the whole tube."
—Rebecca Smith, Business Development Manager
"I tried this stuff because I suffer from puffy eyes every morning! Definitely did a little something but I don't think it was fully effective because I didn't soak the eye sheets enough. Next time I would do that and see if there was a difference!"
—Alex Cadzow, Junior Account Executive
"Since its Friday, my face was looking a little tired and in need of a pick-me-up. I tried these eye masks this morning and I was happy with the results - my eyes definitely looked a little less puffy and tired. My only complaint is that the application isnt the easiest - I wasnt sure how wet to get the strips or how much cream to apply, and the strips ended up peeling off. I would suggest liberally applying the cream and refrigerating before you put it on to help the depuffing process."
—Alex Snider, Junior Account Executive
