So apparently moisturizing lip masks are a thing now. Who knew! That’s just one of the cool things Patchology recently sent me to try out.
The Patchology FlashPatch Lip Gels ($50 for 24 patches) are thin, silicone like patches that you place over your lips for 5 minutes. The lip treatment works its magic and leaves my lips feeling smoother, softer and a bit plumper.
After I remove the lip gel, I rub the remaining moisture into my lips and apply a lip balm. It feels heavenly! No more dryness or cracking, just soft kissable lips.
The lip gels are a little tricky to apply at first. They feel slippery and are a bit delicate to work with. As you can see from my pic, my nails can tear them if I’m not careful.
Once you get it set on your lips, just let it be. Don’t move your mouth or it will slide around or even fall off. The treatment doesn’t really have any taste at all, if you get some in your mouth or lick your lips afterwards.
It says they can be used daily but I’m using these as sort of a treat for myself. I use one every few days when I feel like my lips need some extra lovin’.
Now, the Patchology FlashPatch Eye Gels ($50 for 30 pairs) I am loving! I’ve used these types of undereye masks before, from different brands, but never really saw remarkable results with them. That’s not the case with these!
These eye gels have the same silicone like feel as the lip gels. You apply the eye gel underneath your eyes for 5 minutes, or more if you prefer.
I see a significant difference when I remove them. The area looks nice and hydrated, brighter and more awake. They work so well that I find myself using them quite often.
As with the lip gels, once I remove the eye gels, I pat in the leftover moisture around my eye area. I have very sensitive eyes and I’m happy that these do not cause me any discomfort.
In addition to the lip gels and eye gels, Patchology also sent me some of their FlashMasque facial sheet masks. They have a hydrate one, exfoliate one and an illuminate one. I haven’t tried these yet but I have high hopes for them since I enjoy the lip gels and eye gels so much.
