Say Hello To Eye Masks, Your New Best Friend

Picture yourself at the end of a long day at work, or after a big night out (alcohol-infused at that!) and imagine how your face looks. When you wake up in the morning after hardly getting any proper shuteye the night before, you'll want to jump to things that offer insta-results, such as a tall cup of joe, concealer, or a cold shower.  Fret not, for the beauty industry has found yet another amazing product we can totally grab on our next shopping trip, for its fatigue-fighting, under-eye wonders when even full coverage concealer fails you.

While eye creams can often feel as if they are dragging on delicate under-eye skin, masks target the real problematic areas. They give an almost instant skin-tightening effect and are intended to relieve dark circles, puffy eyes, fine lines and a general look of fatigue. There's just something so effective about concentrated masks. 

So if you’d like to dial your eye efforts up a notch, check out our top picks guaranteedto give you a brighter, smoother, and more refreshed look.

Roll on a thin layer of Chanel’s signature firming and tightening complex—which is derived from Morning Glory flowers—then use the enclosed hydrogel patches to enhance absorption.


Lancome Youth Activating Eye Mask

Youth Activating? We see no reason not to try these patches at least once!


Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Pure Retinol Express Smoothing Eye Mask

The inclusion of retinol on this product means that the skin-smoothing and tightening effects of it plays the long game and delivers instant results, too.


SK-II Signs Eye Mask

Rejuvenate the look and feel of your eyes after the stress of your busy life with this eye mask. Infused with ‘Advanced Night Repair’, experience a mask that bursts onto skin and instantly, your eye area will fell cool and absolutely refreshed.
