Review // Primark Dark Circle Reducer Eye Patches

Primark Face Time Dark Circle Reducer Eye Patches - Sunflowers

I've had dark circles under my eyes for as long as I can remember so anything that claims to reduce them immediately grabs my attention. I spotted these patches in Primark and I thought for £1 I'd give them a go.

What it says on the tin: Not a whole lot to be honest! Apart from instructions on how to use it and the title of the product, there isn't any sales schpiel. They are made in South Korea which I found interesting as I've heard good things about South Korean beauty products.

How it works: You get 4 patches per pack which I think is great value.  You apply the patches under your eyes and then leave them for a minimum of 30 minutes (it says you can also leave them on overnight).

Good things: They felt nice and cooling on the eyes, and delivered a fair hit of moisture to the area. 

Bad Things: I think I may have put them too close to my eyelash line as they were pretty uncomfortable when looking down at anything! To be honest, I don't think they really reduced my dark circles at all, which is the main point of the product. 

Verdict: 5/10. These didn't work for me and as mentioned, I didn't see a difference in the reduction of dark circles. However, they did feel soothing on my eyes and I think these might feel lovely if you're super tired/hungover and need a hit of cooling moisture to your eye area - it did feel soft and refreshed afterwards. I also think maybe if your under eye circles aren't as bad as mine you might see better results - I'd love to know if anyone else has tried these!
