Patchology Gel Eye Patches Are A Must For Weekend Warriors
My new Sunday afternoon ritual involves eating my weight in waffles, reading cheesy memoirs (sorry, Lena Dunham!) and recouping my skin after perhaps too much weekend fun, with any Patchology products I can get my hands on.
Because staying hydrated doesn't just mean chugging a Gatorade the next morning, I've started using Patchology's FlashPatch eye gels a couple times a week to pack in the hydration— I'll rock one on Sundays, and then again mid-week for a quick pick me up, although you can use them daily.
Sold in a set of 30 ($50) and tucked neatly inside a beautiful turquoise mirrored jar that itself is majorly soothing, these babies don't skimp on skin-saving ingredients like caffeine (yes please), collagen, and yeast amino acids, an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.
Smooth them in place with the tiny curved spoon that comes with each set — bonus points: this feels like a super-cooling massage - they're instantly cooling, pleasantly gummy, and ever-so-slightly glittery when you hold it up to the light — a solid way to wean myself off of the glamour of a Saturday night well spent.
I'm also a fan of the FlashMasques, which come in the form of facial sheets — you know, the kind that can supermodels turn to before big runway shows and shoots.
DO: Use one once a week. The exfoliating masque is a dream, and it works, honey. Illuminate is perfect for party prep, and hydrate is great for the morning after.
DON'T: Walk up to anyone in your apartment without warning them loudly that you're approaching and that you're wearing a facial sheet. Just trust me.
