Okay, so, most people who know me know that I do NOT “do” “cutesy.” No curly-Qs, no pink, nada. If I could get away with it, I would participate in the men’s grab bag at holiday parties- a flashlight or knife is much more exciting than “cutesy.” In other words, as my nephew would say, “anything is okay as long as it’s not girly.” (Never mind the fact that I started a beauty blog…lol.) That being said, I was very curious when I came across the Tony Moly Panda’s Dream Eye Patch sheet mask.
Tony Moly is known for “cutesy,” but I still love their lip balms, they are very moisturizing and smell delicious. I saw that the Panda’s Dream Eye Patch is black, meant to look like panda eyes when worn. Yes, a set of two BLACK sheet masks. And it was only THREE bucks for the package! Since I’ve been having issues with (temporary) crepey skin around my eyes due to tretinoin, I took the bait.
There are two patches per package, and they each have a cut-out so you can pull down the flap and see. You can also leave the flaps in place and keep your eyes closed if you want a more intensive treatment. When I put the first patch on, before I pulled the flap down, I felt like a pirate. Arggghhh…suddenly “cutesy” became cool. When I put both on, with the flaps down, I looked more like Zorro- which was also way cooler than a panda (no offense to the pandas out there). Other ways to describe this “look” would be black eyes or goth- which are both more badazz than cute!
The first ingredient is glycerin, a good moisturizer. The other active ingredients are bamboo shoot extract to provide moisture and nutrients, aloe to protect the skin from damage, niacinimide (Vitamin B3) to help brighten skin, and Vitamin C, an antioxidant. While my eyes didn’t seem inherently brighter, my skin was plumper, and my eyes were less puffy- a huge plus considering my horrible allergies. Arrrgghh, matey, methinks I will buy these again!
Tony Moly Panda’s Dream Eye Patch retails for $3.00 per set.
