Hyaluronic patches Hyaluronique Eye-Patch Masks, Thalgo
Tested by BeautyHack Editor Natalia Kapitsa
Patches have taken over the world! They are everywhere: in cars, beauty salons, social networks. If you go outside with them, do not expect sidelong glances - the barista is more likely to ask you: "Are they working?"
Thalgo patches work 100%. They instantly smoothen expression lines, making the skin around the eyes as soft as a child's. The main "ingredients" for transforming me from a panda into a human are hyaluronic acid, oat extract and Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38 peptides.
Thalgo patches are fabric-based, but so thin it doesn't feel at all. Serum impregnation practically does not have any fragrance - this is important for allergy sufferers and owners of hypersensitive skin.
I apply patches to the periorbital area and leave to work for 20 minutes. And after a sleepless night, I increase the time to 40 minutes. We are not at the figure skating championship, but this is a well-deserved 6: 0, friends!

Hydrogel collagen patches for the skin around the eyes Friendly Collagen Eye Patch, Sally's box
Tested by BeautyHack editor Sofia Vorobyova
I think everyone knows that hydrogel collagen patches moisturize and tone the skin around the eyes. And for which of the women is this not relevant?
This time I chose patches from the Korean brand Sally's box - I have long heard a lot of good things about Korean cosmetics. They contain active ingredients such as collagen for skin lifting, as well as natural extracts of chamomile, primrose and calendula for antioxidant and rejuvenating effects. In addition, the extracts of these plants have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory effects, so the patches are ideal for sensitive skin care - they gently moisturize and soothe it. (Read about other eyelid care products here).
When used twice a week, Sally's box patches will improve skin condition and make dark circles under the eyes less visible.
I apply patches and keep them for about 20 minutes - during this time, the product moisturizes and cools the skin. Then I take off the patches and just drive in the rest of the essence with my fingertips.

Hydrogel eye patch Aloe Soothing Essence 80% Hydrogel Eye Patch Calming, Holika Holika
Tested by BeautyHack editorial assistant Arina Zarudko
Unfortunately, decorative cosmetics does not save you from edema and dark circles under the eyes. Therefore, I always have in stock cooling minute masks and hydrogel patches - they help out when you need to quickly put yourself in order.
One of my last favorites is Holika Holika patches with aloe extract. I have been looking for patches in a jar for a long time. An important condition was that they must reanimate the skin around the eyes in 10-15 minutes.
The disposable patches are ideal for travel, and you can afford to keep a pretty jar at home. In a jar from Holika Holika, there are as many as 60 pieces of translucent patches. What is so unique about them?
I noticed that Holika Holika patches are great for cooling and smoothing the delicate skin under the eyes. Aloe in their composition soothes, relieves puffiness and redness. The patches also contain extracts of lemon balm, seaweed and tangerine, which also have a beneficial effect on the skin.
Another plus is that the patches can be applied not only under the eyes, but also on the nasolabial folds or wrinkles on the forehead - the skin is noticeably "revived" and smoothed.
I take out the patches with a special spatula, and then apply them to the area under the eyes for about 15 minutes. At the very beginning of the procedure, they may slip a little due to the abundant liquid with which they are soaked, but after a couple of minutes they are reliably fixed on the skin.
I am sharing a life hack that I learned from actress Rina Grishina (you can find an interview with her here): keep a jar of patches in the refrigerator - this way they will not slip, and the cooling effect will increase.

Peeling mask for the periorbital area, Peeling Patch Eye Contour 10% lactic acid, Soskin
Tested by BeautyHack editor Sofia Vorobyova
Soskin laboratory specialists have long preferred lactic acid due to its pronounced moisturizing and softening properties. I wanted to feel the miraculous properties of lactic acid on myself, so I decided to try a peeling mask for the eye area in the form of patches from Soskin.
As the manufacturer promises, the Soskin eye mask improves skin color, relieves fatigue and does not cause allergies. In addition, the product evenly removes dead cells and stimulates the renewal of the eyelid skin. Also, thanks to lactic acid, age spots and other age-related skin changes are instantly reduced. After applying the mask, the skin of the eyelids is smoothed, it looks hydrated and radiant.
I apply the patches only on cleansed skin of the eyelids and leave it for 10 minutes - the time needs to be adjusted depending on the sensitivity of the skin. After removing the patches, I remove the remnants of the product with a napkin and apply a moisturizer to the skin of the eyelids.

Hydrogel eye patches "Antipanda", Avon
Tested by BeautyHack editor Julia Kozoliy
In 2018, the Avon brand succumbed to the general hype and released a collection of K-Beauty by Avon products. It contains the most popular examples of the Korean beauty industry: patches, hydrogel face masks and lip masks.
In my opinion, antipanda patches turned out to be a particularly successful remedy, which for their low cost make the skin under the eyes almost perfect: reduce puffiness, soften the skin and brighten it, making dark circles look less noticeable.
The patches themselves are thin, which for me is one of the main advantages, because they adhere tightly to the skin and do not slip, even if you are actively moving. And those who are used to driving around with patches in a taxi will especially like it.
The product does not dry completely even after 15 minutes - and that is how much they recommend to keep them! I distribute the rest of the liquid on the skin with hammering movements. I like that there is no sticky feeling afterwards, but there is a high-quality moisturizing effect. Perhaps this is how hyaluronic acid really works in the composition, but glycerin and castor oil occupy the first positions among the components after water.

SUBLIME SKIN Perfect Peptide Eye Patch Mask, [comfort zone]
Tested by BeautyHack special correspondent Alexandra Grishina
The SUBLIME SKIN by [comfort zone] includes six individually packaged patches. I'll tell you right away - open carefully! Unfortunately, I even tore one patch in half - I so wanted to try the product that I abruptly opened the package. After application, I noticed that SUBLIME SKIN hydrogel patches have a lifting effect, give the thin skin of the eyes noticeable hydration and even even out its color.
The manufacturer advises using patches in a course: 2 times a week for 14 days, after which you can apply patches once a week. According to the instructions, the patches need to be kept for 10 minutes, but I can leave them for an hour if I haven't slept much or I'm flying on an airplane. (For other express-care methods - read the editor's opinion here).
A small beauty hack - I have a small jade roller that I always keep in the fridge. When I apply patches, I additionally pass them with gentle movements over the area of application of the product.

Eye contour patches antiox booster system c-vit, Sesderma
Tested by Beautyhack Senior Editor Anya Sherstneva
I often struggle with dark circles and puffiness under my eyes -
unfortunately, this is a genetic predisposition. And it seemed to me that nothing would help me in this. When I saw the patches from Sesderma, I decided to try my luck again, especially since the description of the remedy looked very tempting.
As the manufacturer promises, the Antiox Booster System C-Vit patches relieve swelling and signs of fatigue, lighten dark circles under the eyes, intensively moisturize and regenerate the skin, and also have an instant lifting effect.
In addition, the patches have antioxidant and immunomodulatory effects.
The patches themselves are well saturated with a nourishing emulsion, which in consistency and smell is somewhat reminiscent of orange jelly. Before use, I put the patch pack in the refrigerator - for the best effect. And now after the first "session" I noticed how the skin under the eyes tightened. And after three days of using the patches, dark circles and shadows under the eyes became almost invisible - for me this is a victory!
The only moment that I want to note is a slight burning sensation of the skin during the procedure at the site of application of the patches. Most likely, this effect is due to the active effect on the skin of vitamin C, which is included in the patches. But girls with sensitive skin should pay attention to this.

Patches Hyaluron Lightening Hydragel Eye Pads, Eveline
Tested by the editorial assistant of Beautyhack Anya Khobotova
The Eveline brand now boasts both nasal cleansing strips and eyelid patches in its range. According to the manufacturer, all products are made using a unique Asian technology.
I decided to try Eveline's Hyaluron Lightening Hydragel Eye Pads. Their composition is rich in such active elements as vitamins A and E, adenosine, allantoin, lotus and aloe extract.
The box contains three individual packs with patches, and you can use one pair as many as 2 times. The patches are smooth on one side and fabric on the other. Due to the hydrogel base, they perfectly adhere to the skin and do not slip away.
I put them on for about 20 minutes and immediately feel the dryness of the eyelids disappear, the skin tightens and the swelling goes away. When I remove the patches, I also notice how fine mimic wrinkles are smoothed out (the hyaluronic acid in the composition intensively moisturizes the skin).
I use the patches once a week, but I noticed the result after the first procedure.
Price: about 250 rubles
Hydrogel patches Black Edition Eye Patch Filler, Mixit
Tested by Beautyhack editorial assistant Anya Khobotova
Lack of sleep is my eternal problem, so eye patches are a separate love.
The Mixit brand has long attracted my attention - there are many interesting products in their assortment that often flash on Instagram and lure with bright photos. For example, awesome shiny masks.
Hydrogel patches from the Mixit brand became my pleasant discovery - lovers of pandas will definitely like them!
I use the product in the morning right after washing my face. They adhere perfectly to the skin. My record is an hour. The patches do not slip, and there is a pleasant chill on the skin under the eyes.
The result is visible immediately after use: no puffiness and shadows under the eyes. And with daily application, even fine wrinkles disappear.
And patches can be used more than 10 times - this is a very nice advantage of them!
Price: about 300 rubles
Anti Swelling Moisturizing Gel Patches, Retinol
Tested by the special correspondent of Beautyhack Daria Mironova
I've already tried many different patches. And, when possible, I always choose products in individual packages, like these patches from the American brand Retinol (I also use this brand's serum in my care, a detailed review of which can be found here).
The slim sachet of patches is easy to take with you when traveling - especially when flying. The active ingredient in the patches is retinol. It is he who is responsible for accelerating the renewal of skin cells and rejuvenates.
Unfortunately, one pack of patches is not enough for a pronounced anti-aging effect - for this you need to use the product daily for at least two to three weeks. But in emergency situations or before important events, Retinol patches will definitely help out. If suddenly at night you shed a tear under a sad movie and in the morning the skin under your eyes is a little swollen, apply patches for 10-15 minutes, having previously cooled them in the refrigerator. Glycerin and castor oil in the composition will moisturize the skin, and aloe extract will soothe it. Retinol patches do not slip, so you can safely go about your business with them. After 20 minutes, you can remove them and complete the treatment with a regular cream - the skin around the eyes will look fresh and rested.
In airplanes, such products are worth their weight in gold, because they ideally save the skin from dehydration, and the packaging is so weightless that it fits into any purse.
Price: 1 960 RUB. for a set of 10 pieces
Hydrogel Patches "Moisture Keeper" for Face, Avon
Tested by BeautyHack special correspondent Ana Lipartia
The crazy rhythm of life, lack of sleep and stress - all this is first of all reflected on my face and especially on the skin around my eyes. I was already getting used to looking like a "panda" day after day, until I got my hands on a new product from Avon - Korean Aloe Facial Patches. I liked this tool more than other similar ones, for a number of reasons. First, the main purpose of these patches from Avon is to hydrate and hydrate the skin. By the way, they do an excellent job with these tasks! And the most interesting thing is that the patches are intended not only for the eyes, but also for the entire face. Secondly, the result is noticeable after the first application - I began to look fresh and even managed to forget about the constant traces of fatigue on my face.
The patches themselves are teardrop-shaped, but not quite a standard size - they are slightly larger than others, so they can be applied to the area of the nasolabial folds and even to the forehead. I only used them for the under eye area. And I can note that after use, both visual and tactile effects were immediately noticeable. On the flap, the skin has become more elastic, soft and velvety. I became convinced of the effectiveness of this tool and now patches from Avon are included in my daily beauty ritual.
