These magic little eye pads are one of my absolute favorite products. I use them at least once a week and love the immediate results. I start with freshly cleansed skin making sure not to put any eye serum or moisturizer under my eyes before sticking on the pads. Then I go about my morning routine trying to keep them on for about an hour. The directions say you only need to keep them on for 15 minutes but I find that they are still damp at that time and want to get the most out of them. I will also scoop out any liquid retinol that is left in the package and tap it around my eye area and into the rest of my face/neck. When I am running late I will throw on a pair of sunglasses and keep them on as I drive to work. After I remove the pads I notice that under my eyes is much brighter and the fine lines have disappeared. They even help to take away some of the redness I get around my eyes from allergies. These pads are on the expensive side but definitely worth it. I always have a packet of these in my purse and are my go whenever I am traveling!
