A few months ago, I picked up a four pack of the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery Eye Masks. Phew that’s one long name!
I’d seen Fleur de Force and a few other bloggers/vloggers mention how great these eye masks are for travel, as they reduce puffiness and freshen up the under eye area.
You can purchase these masks individually for £9-£10 each or the four pack for £36. I impulsively bought the four pack when I saw them in Debenhams, as they didn’t have the individual masks.
Price wise these are pretty expensive. Estee Lauder serums themselves aren’t cheap, but I think the price point is still £2-£3 higher than it should be.
Now on to the mask itself.
Each individual sachet has two parts, the serum at the bottom and the eye pads at the top. You press along where the serum is to break the seal and push it up on to the pads to soak them.
Except it wasn’t that easy! I’m not sure if I just had a dud set of masks but the packaging was awful! No matter how hard or how long I spent trying to break/pierce the seal I could barely get any serum up on to the pads. I often ending up cutting the packaging and soaking the pads manually.
Once applied under my eyes, things still didn’t improve. The pads felt uncomfortable, moved around and then dried out quickly.
Was there any results? Nope, no good ones! The under eye masks are supposed to help with dryness and dehydration, lack of radiance and fine lines.
I found my under eye area felt tighter and smoother, but drier after using these masks. My under eye area also looked dull and despite feeling smooth to the touch, my fine under eye lines looked the same.
My final thoughts? Avoid, avoid, avoid! For the price I found these eye masks yielded no positive results and if anything, made my under eye area look worse.
Let me know if you’ve ever tried these Estee Lauder Eye Masks.
