Cut to fit securely underneath the eye, these adhesive gel patches are supposed to infuse skin with a concentrated amount of soothing ingredients. To that end, it's great that these patches contain good amounts of glycerin and olive oil, though disappointing that angelica root is also part of the formula. This plant contains irritating ingredients that can make skin more sensitive to sunlight--and do you really want to make your eye area more sensitive than it already is?

These patches also contain a hairspray-type film-forming agent that can be irritating around the eyes. This is yet another waste of time (and money) that doesn’t deserve your attention. You can get better results from using a cool washcloth or chilled cucumber slice over your eye area than a gimmicky product like this.

In just 10 minutes, this cooling transdermal gel patch infuses the eye area with concentrated doses of soothing ingredients. Elastin helps to firm and tone, Hexapeptide helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, Gingko Biloba improves blood flow and helps reduce puffiness and advanced antioxidants help prevent future damage. The patch, a cutting-edge delivery system, is easy to both apply and remove and is non-irritating.
