“ Brand: Eyeslices / Masks / Type: Eye Mask / Subcategory: Pads / Suitable for: Eye „
I purchased eyeslices in the 'legendary eyes' variety after reading nothing but good things about them across various beauty blogs. I had high hopes after reading all the excited, gushing reviews but I'm sorry to say that my high expectations were not met, as I really don't see anything 'special' about these eyeSlices... apart from the modern, well designed packaging!
The eyeslices come in a nifty plastic opal case, each side opens to reveal an eyeslice packaged in a clear plastic container with a foil lid to peel back. The slices feel jelly like and strange to the touch, apparently the ingredients in the eyeslices (Suma root Muira Puma and White Lily) are meant to reduce dark circles and puffiness, but to be honest it just felt like two slices of plastic on my eyes, and I felt no benefit afterwards. Also I couldn't 'relax' while the eyeslices were on because I felt like they weren't making enough 'contact' with the skin around my eyes. Instead they felt as though they only stayed on my socket bone. I kept trying to push them in so the area directly around my eyes had contact with the slices but they kept on 'peeling away' so I just gave up as this was very irritating. Carrying on from this point, the promotional pictures on the packaging are actually very misleading. The slices look bigger and thinner than they actually are. In real life the slices are smaller and much thicker... the thickness is probably why I struggled to get them to cover all the skin around my eyes.
I ordered mine online so I'm unsure as to the availability offline but they usually cost between £10 - £15. Apparently once you've used up your first pair you can buy refills... but I haven't been able to fine these available anywhere online?
Eyeslices claim to be reusable up to 10 times but I found that mine dried out very quickly. I actually think that statement is very misleading as well. Because the slices dry out once you've opened the packaging so instead it should state a time frame. I would say you've probably got around two weeks to use them once opened. Which I consider to be poor value for money.
In conclusion... I'm just going to stick to good ol' cucumbers and tea bags on the eyes I think, might not look as sleek and modern but it's cheap as chips and actually effective!
