I have been an obsessive buyer of undereye patches for YEARS. In the last two years, I’ve been using them pretty much DAILY as part of my morning routine.
So, when I saw these Skin Gym Under Eye Reusable Patches, I thought, wow I’m going to be saving so much money and it’s probably better for the environment if I use these…
The Skin Gym eye patches are $20, which is totally reasonable.
To use them, you remove them from their reusable case and rinse them under water (get them as wet as you can). Put whatever serum or eye cream you want to use on your under-eye, and place the patches.
Now, what do I think?
I usually don’t write about products that I don’t absolutely LOVE, but since this is such a different product for me, I wanted to share my thoughts on it.
As you can probably guess, I don’t love these. I don’t think they are a replacement for the typical under-eye patches we’re used to.
However, I do think these are a good option if you’re looking for something reusable. These are made from top-grade silicon, so they’ll last a while.
The reviews said to get them “very wet” but they’re not soaking up the water, and I found it didn’t matter much how wet I tried to get them. The directions say to use a small amount of cream or serum, but I found using a little more worked better.
These are affordable and I think good to use if you only need an undereye patch every now and then. If you want to use them for travel, that may be good since you can just reuse the one set.
I’d recommend storing them in the fridge, don’t bother with the water, and put on a good amount of your eye cream.
I couldn’t get a good seal on them like I could with other sets, and that’s what I really didn’t like, but I’m sure they fit everyone differently.
So, not a total no on these, but not my favorite.
Have you ever tried reusable eye patches?
