I am nowadays big time into readymade masks dipped in natural essences. This one “Hydro Soothing Cucumber Pads” are eye patches with cucumber and licorice extract. These can be placed over the eyes after a tiring day or after long hours before the computer. A little detail about these patches:
Purederm Hydro Soothing Cucumber Pads are pre-moistened with real cucumber and other soothing ingredients. When used on top of your eyes, these cucumber pads soothe tired, stressed eyes and help reduce puffiness and dark circles.
How To Use:
Wash your face and place pads on top of eyes or other face areas, lie back and relax. Leave pads on for 10-15 minutes and remove. Make sure to reseal zipper bag after use.
Rs. 124 for 10 pads.
My Take on Purederm Hydro Soothing Cucumber Pads:
These cucumber-shaped eye patches come in a clear zipper bag. There are 10 of these patches in the bag. These soft textured, non-abrasive, kind of cotton pads are moist with cool essence in them. These patches are for a single use. Its a bit difficult to stick up these patches on the eyelids. When kept on the eyes, it imparts a cool feeling. It smells very mildly of cucumbers, its not annoying, and does not help with relaxing at all. What does help is the cooling essence that helps to soothe the eyes.
Puffy eyes can get a bit of help with these patches, not much. Dark circles I don’t think would clear up even with regular use. The only issue I have is that the essence makes the eye area very sticky and if I am going out, I need to wash it off.
I keep these pads in the refrigerator for increased cooling effect, though its not recommended on the pack. Its advised not to sleep with the pads on, I do not know the reasons why. Overall, I like these patches.
