Elemis Pro Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks

Elemis, high end skincare purveyors extraordinaire, have released a new product which falls into a category I've never, ever tried before.  Meet Pro Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks (mouthful!), which are serum soaked, hydra gel patches you stick to your undereye area.  They promise to smooth, hydrate and firm the eye area, with the effect lasting up to six hours.  You get six sachets, each containing two eye patches (yarr), in each box.

To apply, remove from sachet, separate from backing, stick to face.  Excuse the moody expression here, I was trying very, very hard not to move my face at all.  Which isn't actually necessary, as these masks stick themselves on pretty well by themselves.

Before and after
Twenty minutes later, my undereye area felt much, much firmer, and very well hydrated.  If you make this before/after comparison photo very large, you can probably see that whilst the effects aren't significant, my fine lines are smoother, and in general my eye area looks brighter and less, well, dehydrated.

At £46 a box, this product is very, very expensive, particularly given that it's a quick fix product which doesn't produce a long lasting effect, making them less of an everyday product and more of a special occasion prep product.  I could totally see myself using these in the run up to a big day - brides, take note - to make sure that I look my absolute best in important photos.  Find them now at Time to Spa.
