I was excited to see the mud mask from GlamGlow because I have been wanting to try a few of their products. Everyone knows how obsessed I am with lipstick so I can’t wait to use the chubby stick from Clinique and I’m curious to see how the  Smashbox primer works with my oily skin. I’ll be doing a review on these products in the future. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

tarte 911 Undereye Rescue Patches Review

I’ve been buying alot of tarte products lately. I’ve been keeping up with them on snapchat and they’ve come out with quite a few new and interesting things, especially for skin care. One thing that I absolutely could not wait to get my hands on were the “pack your bags” 911 Undereye Rescue Patches.

What they are: Little gel patches that are supposed to soothe and hydrate the skin under the eyes, and reduce puffiness and dark circles. The box contains 4 packs(2 in each pack).

Price: $22

How they work: They contain hyaluronic acid which adds moisture and firmness. They’re heat activated which is supposed to ensure complete, concentrated absorption.

How to use them: You apply them to clean skin and leave them on for 10-15 minutes.

I used them in the morning for 4 days straight. Each time I noticed that the puffiness under my eyes had gone down just slightly and the skin was very well hydrated…it looked like I had applied a moisturizer under my eyes. As for the dark circles…right after I removed the patches my undereye area did look brighter but that was only temporary. I kept mine in the refrigerator because one of the girls on tarte’s snapchat said they work better that way. I found them to be really easy to use. They’re flexible, fit perfectly under the eyes and they stay in place. You don’t have to worry about them falling off or sliding down your face. The packaging is super cute and eye-catching. Personally, I feel like the box should contain at least 6 packs..but that’s just me and maybe I’m asking for too much lol! Overall I think this is a great product and I will be buying more, only this time I’m going to buy 4/5 at a time so I can get more use out of them.

Have you tried them? If so share your thoughts!
