BuzzFeed: We Asked A Dermatologist What To Look For In Under-Eye Patches

Patchology 5 pack eye gels restoring retinol

More than just a way to show off your self-care practices, here’s what under-eye patches actually do.

At this point, you’ve probably seen your favorite influencer preaching about self-care or getting their makeup done with some crescent-shaped patches under their eyes. Maybe they were gold or sparkly or iridescent. You were intrigued. What do those do? you wondered, but ultimately didn’t care because they looked luxurious and you wanted some.

Of course, I had to include something glittery for those who are looking to show them off. These Patchology eye gels get rave reviews for more than just their fun appearance. They say you’ll see results in just five minutes, though Nazarian suggests wearing them for much longer (and it’s safe to do so). 

Patchology promises brighter and smoother skin right away, and eventually a reduction in dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines. The primary active ingredients are peptides and retinol, so it may be a good idea to test for skin safety before use. 

Promising review: “After an exhausting day and planning on going out in the evening I tried these. I left them on for an hour while I took a short nap. I was amazed at how well refreshed and plump the area around my eyes were. Love these. Will be my go to in the future.” —D. Irwin
