Hope everyone is staying healthy!
Today we’ll be chatting about the well known and well loved Advanced Snail Line from COSRX, specifically the COSRX Advanced Snail Hydrogel Eye Patch. COSRX claims that these hydrogel eye patches are able to:
- Plump & Hydrate Delicate Eye Area
- Depuff and Nourish
I’ll be diving into the product and my thoughts of it as a first time user of Hydrogel Eye Patches 😳
Quantity: 60 patches
✅ Alcohol Free | ✅ Fragrance Free | ✅ Essential Oils Free
Similar to the other Advanced Snail line products from COSRX, the serum that the eye patches are soaked in have a slightly slippery texture from the Snail Secretion Filtrate. However, it is definitely not as ‘slimy’ as the moisturiser if you have tried it!
I did experience a little bit of pilling when layering my other products - so just keep that in mind if you tend to use many products.
There are two different shapes of eye patches. One large patch, fitted for the whole under-eye area, as well as a small patch which is designed to be placed in areas such as your smile lines or forehead wrinkles depending on your own concerns 🙂
The packaging was simple and hygenic. Right above the actual eye patches is a small compartment for the mini tongs! This makes things nice and easy especially for people like me who are prone to losing things 🙃
The total ingredients list is short which I was pleasantly surprised about as most sheet masks and eye patches typically have a long, long, looong list of ingredients that can potentially irritate the skin.
The main ingredient is Snail Secretion Filtrate which has phenomenal repairing and hydrating properties. This is paired with Niacinamide, which helps to brighten up dullness while delivering deep nourishment and hydration to the skin.
Getting these to test out was a real treat! These eye patches were an easy pick-me-up during a busy week when I wasn’t bothered to pop a whole mask on or do my ENTIRE skincare routine. This would be a GREAT purchase for those looking for a product for their little spa day or as part of their self-care routine!
In terms of the effect on the skin, I would say that this product definitely did not flare up any dry spots or blemishes for my acne-prone combination skin. It also did a really great job of moisturising and my skin felt well hydrated even after a couple of hours - which in turn reduced the appearance of any super fine lines around my eyes from dryness. I will say that after testing this product for a few weeks, it didn’t do much for the overall appearance of my under eye other than hydration. I was just expecting a bit more in this aspect as it is one of my personal concerns with my under-eye area.
I would recommend this product for those with dry, sensitive, acne-prone, or normal-oily skin types looking for some eye patches to try out. However, if you were looking to target your dark circles, I would suggest you look towards an eye cream or even just a brightening serum. Although my experience wasn’t a 10/10, it is still a solid skincare product with great soothing and moisturizing ingredients that I still would recommend.
