Well, I might only be 24, but I am getting wrinkly-er and vainer as I get older, and being a heavy smoker has aged me terribly, so I'm always looking around for the latest beauty products. I bought these gel patches, designed to stick to the skin under your eyes, in Body Care, thinking to myself "Let's see if they really work, then," I didn't think they would, but they were cheap enough that I was willing to try. While they didn't work miracles, I was happy to see fewer wrinkles in they eye area then before.

Price: £1.99, for 8 patches (making up 4 uses).

Packaging: Plain, not very eye catching. There is a picture of a lady wearing the eye patches with a bright smile. Personally, I don’t smile and pose like this when I’m beautifying, but that’s just me. Across the top in blue writing it says ‘Anti-wrinkle gel patches’, and a red band across the bottom of the box, with ‘PUREDERM’ written in white. All around the sides and back of the box are instructions, cautions, and ingredients.

Cautions: This is usually the first thing I read, because I don’t want to buy something to find that I can’t use it when I get home.
1. Don’t on blemishes, pimples, irritated or sunburned skin.
2. Don’t use on skin which is sensitive to bandages, tapes or peel of masks.
3. Stop using if skin becomes irritated, swollen, red or itchy.
4. Avoid contact with eyes (I have to admit, I giggled a little at this one, given where the patches are designed to go, but of course I realise it means on your eyeball).
5. External use only (but my tongue really wants to be wrinkle free…).
6. Keep away from children.

The product is dermatologist tested, fragrance free, hypo allergenic and hydrogelic type.

Instructions: There are two sets of instructions, one for a 30 minute use and one for overnight use.
30 minutes: Apply patches for 30 minutes at least 3 times a week for the first week. Apply once a week there after.

Overnight: Apply patches overnight, for at least 6 hours. Apply once a week there after.

Ingredients: Aqua, glycerin, sodium polyacrylate, polycyclic acid kaolin, cellulose, polysorbate 80, titanium dioxide, methylparaben, aluminium hydroxide, hyaluronic acid, aloe barbadensis extact, panax ginseng, tocopheryl acetate retinyl palmitate, camillia sinensis extract, disodium EDTA. Sorry, I couldn’t find any of this in English……

My thoughts: I did notice a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines around my eyes, but as I said, it didn’t work miracles. I did think it was worth £1.99 though. I am going to keep buying them just to try and stave off the aging process a little longer. One thing I did notice, that it didn’t say anywhere on the packaging ‘not tested on animals’, or something along those lines. A quick google search led me to a site (http://consumersthatcare.weebly.com/cool-companies.html) where they are listed as against animal testing.
The overnight application didn't seem to work very well, i woke up to find they had come off during the night.
I would recommend these to anyone who doesn’t expect too much, but does want results.

Try putting in the fridge then using on your eyes, helps the process!

Great first review, welcome! I have these but keep forgetting to apply them on consecutive nights so end up with a single treatment and just a little improvement.
