Lately, I have been suffering from insomnia. You’d think between work, the kids, and all the other elements of my life that I would hit the pillow and drift off into unconsciousness. Unfortunately, that has not happening. Either I wake up at three in the morning or I am up until one. I would cherish eight straight hours of undisturbed slumber. Needless to say, it has taken a toll on my skin, notably under my eyes. The bags under them are larger than a Louis Vuitton Pesage suitcase; thank goodness for good concealer! I have yet to find a good eye cream (if anyone has any recommendations, it would be greatly appreciated.) I recently purchased the Klorane Smoothing and Relaxing Patches with Cornflower as it promised to sooth and reduce puffiness for tired eyes due to lack of sleep. This product looked as if it was calling out directly to me.
You store the packets in the fridge, which creates the most exhilarating and tranquil feeling on application (I know it seems like an oxymoron.) The patches themselves are a thin jelly-like consistency that stays exactly where you place them. After the first time using them I noticed a difference. Even though the dark circles were still there, the puffiness was gone and the outer halves of my under-eyes were strikingly smoother. I think I will have to adapt my skincare regimen to include these!!!
