I HATE allergy season. I love summer, but I absolutely detest having to deal with these damn allergies! I swear, it’s like a torrential snot rain pouring out of my nose (TMI…??); and my eyes are perpetually puffy and red. Ugggghhhh…
The good news is, eye puffiness is at least somewhat easy to deal with. I keep a tube of Ole Henriksen eye gel in the refrigerator to use when my eyes get puffy, Not only does the metal rollerball help, but the cooled gel reduces the puff quickly. Very soothing! I had never heard of Wilma Schumann, though, until I received a pair of these eye pads free with a purchase.
According to the company, Wilma Schumann Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads offer intense hydration, are non-irritating, and easy to use. The 100% pure collagen gel pads enhance the eye contour area by reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and puffiness.
While I didn’t notice any major moisture or reduction in fine lines, the eye pads DID work wonders on my puffy eyes! These aren’t like most eye masks that are just made of fiber, paper, or cellulose, they’re thick and have a cushy gel-like feel. I found the gel-like pads to be very soothing, so much so that I really didn’t want to take them off…lol. Anywho, when I finally did remove them after about 20-25 minutes, my puffy eye bags were GONE. These were really like magic! I got another pair in my March Birchbox (more info here), and I stashed them in the refrigerator and used them chilled- and OMG- the BEST experience EVER.
