I got this Talika Eye Therapy Patch a few months back and have used it several times. I have to admit I dont really take care of my eyes, but I have dark circle genes from my dad. I mostly cover it with concealer though. And this eye patch says to reduce it. Comes in 3 patches each box, that's re-usable up to 5 times. I will be doing mini review here ^.^ If you're still interested, please keep reading!
This award winning dry patch acts in 30 minutes, delivering moisturizing and anti-ageing ingredients directly to the skin by osmosis. Developed from a post surgery technology.
Reusable, even washable, it produces gradual and controlled diffusion of the active ingredients, stimulating the skin surrounding the eye area to a younger and smoother appearance. This reusable patch, spectacularly reduces all trace of fatigue appearing under the eyes. It is a pleasant, effective, natural and comfortable solution for combating wrinkles, circles and under-eye puffiness.
I have used the first patch for like 6 times! LOL It's supposed to be 30 minutes per day for 3 weeks, but I am such a lazy one so I only use it when I am super exhausted. The staff told me that although it's re-usable up to 5 times, but as long as the patch still has its stickiness, it's still okay to be used! Just make sure that you save the transparent plastic that comes with the patch to stick it again so it wont lose its stickiness! :D
Here's how it looks like! It's velvety smooth and has cold sensation that relaxes my tiring eyes! I use it mostly at evening before I go to sleep
And this is how I use it! :-D Place it on your dark circles, I somehow pat it lightly to stimulate my blood circulation better as well!
And yes, I pin my bangs at home, cos I dont want my face to get dirt from hair. It's not like I have dirty hair lol but it's really recommended to get everything away from your face to keep it clean leh XD
Back to Talika! After using it, I an feel my dark circle is reduced slightly. Not completely gone, but a it becomes a little brighter and more radiant, the skin where the patch's sticked on also becomes smoother and suppler! ^.^ It's said to reduce wrinkle as well, but cos I dont have any so I don't know whether it's true or not
I will still keep using it especially when my eyes are tired. It helps rejuvenating my tired eyes! :-D The cons point is that it's quite expensive. I am not really sure about the price. But as it's reusable many many times, and great result. It's worth it :)
Cheaper alternative? cucumber? LOL
