My Experience with Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels:
Packaging: I like how these eye pads comes in their individual sealed pouches. The eye patch is a nice sized curved patch with a sticky adhesive that helps it stay in place on the skin. The eye patch covers my whole under eye and extends a bit below and I like that it is not stingy in the area it covers. The adhesive on the eye patch is not too sticky, but it helps the eye patch stay put and not slide around at all. They are easy to remove and do not tug when peeling off.
Texture, Application and Results: These eye patches have a smooth gel-based texture on one side which is also the sticky side. Immediately upon application, you feel this wonderful cool sensation in the under eye area which helps reduce puffiness. You can even put these in the refrigerator for even more cooling.
Regarding it showing dramatic results in my under eye, I haven’t noticed anything drastic. Yes, it helps in combating puffiness, but you can also do that with a cool piece of cucumber or a chilled spoon too. The only benefit of these eye patches is that they do not hinder your daily activity. You can apply them and go about your daily chores while they work. They do not leave any residue behind after you peel them hence you can follow up with your makeup right after without needing to wash your skin.
I did not notice any brightness or reduction in my under-eye darkness. My under-eye area did not seem extra hydrated or moisturized, but it did feel a little bit firmer, smooth and supple. I cannot support the claim of these reducing wrinkles as I am still in my mid-20s.
Overall, for the high price, I do not think these eye patches are worth it. They are a nice luxury item and would give you a short-term feel-good factor, but I have not noticed any drastic, noteworthy results by using these, hence I will not recommend them.
Pros of Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels:
- Convenient to use.

Cons of Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels:
