Sorry this post has become Face Mask Saturday instead of Face Mask Friday this week, but better late than never. This week i'm reviewing two anti-ageing collagen under-eye masks - one is gel and contains 24K gold, and the other is fibre and hydrogel and contains green tea.
First up, the Jamela Luxurious 24K Gold Crystal Collagen Under-Eye Masks (£17 for 5 pairs from Jamela Skincare) look like molten gold. These cooling and refreshing eye masks come sealed in serum-filled packets for one-time use and are designed to combat under-eye puffiness, dark circles, dehydration and visible signs of ageing. They have a rose scent and utilise the benefits of Mineral Gold, Hyaluronic Acid, Rose Oil, Collagen and Oats Beta Glucan to stimulate collagen production, improve skin elastin, hydrating the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. There are also anti-oxidents and skin nourishing ingredients such as Liquorice Root Extract and Olive Oil to protect and condition the skin.
These masks really do work - you leave them on for 30 minutes, and afterwards, the skin under my eyes feels and looks amazing. Any fine lines I have are gone and my skin is soft, smooth and firm. The only downside to these masks is that they constantly slip down from where you place them under your eyes, so you have to keep moving them up and holding them in place.
Next, I've been trying the Beauty Pro Eye Therapy Under-Eye Masks (£4.94 for 3 pairs from Beauty Pro). These are the fibre masks with a hydrogel backing that most brands do, but these ones contain marine based collagen, skin brightening green tea, aloe vera, Vitamin A and Vitamin E to also combat under-eye puffiness, dark circles, dehydration and visible signs of ageing. These aren't as cooling or refreshing as the gold masks and they don't provide such dramatic results, but they do improve everything they claim to tackle. Definitely not bad for something that's a less than half the price per treatment. You leave these ones on for 20 minutes and you will see an improvement in the visibility of lines and your skin will feel softer and firmer.
Both of these masks work, but I do prefer the experience and the results of the Jamela masks. I guess it just depends on your budget. Have you tried either of these?
