That is, until I discovered Bliss’s Eye Got This Holographic Foil Eye Masks. I’ll be honest, what initially drew me in was the cute holographic foil star print. If nothing else, I figured they’d at least make for a fun selfie or two. But after my first use, it was clear that these eye masks deliver much, much more.
Most importantly, Bliss nailed the ratio of serum to mask. They don’t slip or slide down your face once you put them on, which means you can go about your morning routine (in my case, scrolling through TikTok) without having to readjust the masks once, for the full 15 to 20 minutes of wear. Each patch is saturated with a mixture of acetyl hexapeptide-8, a peptide intended to smooth fine lines, sodium hyaluronate, a moisturizing agent, plus a hydrating blend of vegetable-derived ingredients. The masks are a little slimy when you take them out of the packaging, but smooth on with ease. And it’s easy to tell which side should face outward, thanks to the star designs.
After the first use my under eyes—which were previously home to two dark, purple-y circles—appeared bright and awake. The serum had erased all hints of sleep deprivation, leaving me looking like I had just gotten a full 10 hours of sleep even though I had spent the previous night tossing and turning. The results were so good that I decided to forgo concealer for the day and around 4 PM, I actually had to do a double take in the mirror. Normally, the afternoon slump is evident on my face, but my eye area looked smooth, sans any puffiness or sagging, just as it had that morning.
I’m also a fan of using these at night when I’m in the mood for a little pampering. They have a cool, soothing effect on the skin that makes me feel like I’m indulging in a spa treatment even if I’m actually sprawled out on the couch. Plus, I notice that the effects seem to carry over into the next morning, making me look well-rested and puff-free. The results are so good, I usually skip concealer all-together because there’s literally nothing to conceal.
My only complaint? It’s really hard to find a multi pack in stores, which means I’m left shilling out $4 per pair, or $20 for just five days-worth of masks. I usually resort to buying the five-count set from Bliss’s site for $15, which feels just a smidge more economical (unless I use the $5 I saved to buy a latte).
Whether you’re a sleep-deprived parent, insomniac or night owl, like me, these masks are a total game-changer. Trust me.
