Review: PixiBeauty DetoxifEYE Eye Patches

Easy screw off Lid. Although a pull-open lip would be quite good to use

Can be purchased on their website: HERE

Price: £22

Volume: 30 pairs.

What does it do: De-puff and refresh/hydrate the under eye.

Who should it suit?:

-Those with dehydrated under eyes

-Those who have dark circles (not genetic dark circles but dark circles caused by lack of sleep etc)

-Might not be good for sensitive skin if you  have allergies to any of the ingredients (please see full list below).

Thank God for the Spatula

Packaging: Easy to use – it’s a twist top. Also comes with an extra pull-off top which can be annoying/fiddly along with the wet patches.

Directions: Use the spatula to lift an individual eye patch. Apply to dry and clean under eye area (thickest part at the outer corner). Repeat for the other side, leave on for 10 minutes and throw away after use. Pat remaining serum into the under eye skin.

-Can use daily.

-Can also put in the fridge so it’s extra cold for extra depuffing.

How I use it:

I apply this in the morning if I’m going to go to the gym. I am going to sweat my serums off – so I use this patch to simply hydrate under the eye and de-puff my tired eyes before heading off. It’s a great way to wake up and start the day for me. If I do use this at night, I actually apply these patches under a sheet mask (because the holes are big and miss my under eyes – I can apply these patches to cover the empty spots).

Key ingredients: Hyaluronic acid and caffeine – to hydrate and wake up the eyes (temporarily reduce the look of dark circles). Also contains cucumber extract and gold for extra nourishment.

Comes with a pull out lid

Texture:

Gel-type and thin texture of the ‘juice’ itself.

Good under makeup?:

The ‘juice’ itself does get absorbed very quickly into the skin (because the patches are not absolutely dripping)

The patches have some glitter “glow” to them. Adhere to the skin nicely and you can see theres excess serum but not crazy amounts

Good Points:

  • Doesn’t slip off
  • Cools under the eye
  • Comes with a Spoon Spatula (makes it way easier to pick up the patches)
  • Hydrates
  • Does feel like it ‘wakes’ me up (genuinely does de-puff my eyes)
  • The gel patches are not ‘dripping’ with product so it’s not as messy as other products – HOWEVER this does mean that not as much product is touching your skin. Hence why you need a cream on top if you are dry.

Bad Points:

  • Price point
  • Does not moisturise (i.e. it hydrates but I put an under-eye cream on afterwards – so if you have dry eyes, you will need more than these patches).
  • Not good if you’re in a rush (because they take 10 minutes to absorb).

Conclusion: These eye patches are probably the best eye patches I’ve tried (although I haven’t tried many). But these did not slip off for me (which is all I want from eye patches) and I couldn’t smell any fragrance which is great. Also I genuinely do think these de-puff and wake up my under eyes.

Overall: 4/5

*This was PR gifted. But does not affect my views of the product.
