These $22 Under-Eye Patches From Winky Lux Outperform the Competition for Less – CNET

It’s natural for our eyes to begin to look and feel different as we get older. We’ll have to deal with those changes at some point. While there are more invasive eye treatments out there, one way to visibly improve your eyes’ appearance is by using under-eye patches consistently. If you’re not familiar with this beauty technique, you can get to know it by trying these Wakey Wakey Eye Hydrogel eye patches from Winky Lux for just $22.

These brightening patches are available for the same price at Ulta, Amazon and on the company’s own website. And in comparison to other brands, they’re a steal because you get 30 in one pack. By contract, popular brands such as Peter Thomas Roth and 111Skin sell their eye patches for $75 and $105, respectively. 

Each Winky Lux eye patch is infused with caffeine, Vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and licorice extract to relieve puffiness, brighten the skin and inject much-needed moisture to dry skin. After using these patches for a few days, I did feel as if the skin under my eyes looked brighter and felt better. The only other product at this point that made me feel this way wasn’t even an eye patch at all, it was GlamGlow’s Brighteyes

What makes these patches great at this price is the convenience of everything being premade. So, all you have to do is just add these to clean skin for 10 to 15 mins and massage the serum into your skin. Keep in mind, there is a lot of serum on these patches, I’d suggest you wipe them down a bit before you use them to keep them on your face.

What I dislike about these patches might just be what entices other people — these patches are one-time use only. If you don’t want to fuss with picking a decent serum, using reusable eye patches and washing them every night, then using these Winky Lux patches will work just fine. I, however, also enjoy reusable eye patches and choosing my own serum, so if you prefer that method, you can grab reusable eye patches from Pacifica Beauty for $15. 

Overall, these are pretty nice eye patches and will work with any routine pretty well as long as you give it time. If you want these patches, check them out on Winky Lux’s website or other retailers today.
