A different way to smooth crow’s feet
In case you didn’t know, the eye area is the first to show visible signs of aging. The combination of thin skin, a lifetime of smiling and squinting, and a high likelihood of skimping on sun protection does a number on the collagen and elastin in this area, leading to those fine lines we refer to as crow’s feet. Eye cream is the first (and bare minimum) line of defense, and it’s a skincare staple for most of us over a certain age. I certainly don’t have an issue with eye cream, but when I came across Patchology’s FlashPatch Restoring Night Eye Gels, I was eager to give this alternative a try.
Packed with much-needed moisture, rejuvenating retinol, collagen-boosting peptides, soothing arnica and discoloration-fighting Cedrus Atlantica bark extract, simply slap them on for five minutes and let them go to work on those pesky lines, dark circles and other signs of stress and fatigue. I love how they stay put—in turn delivering the potent active ingredients exactly where I want them—and they minimize the product buildup and pilling I sometimes experience when I apply too much or too many products too quickly. They’re a bit thinner are more film-y than the puff-reducing patches I’ve used before, but that has no impact on the final result.
Granted I (naturally) make my eye-area anti-aging regimen a whole to-do with my Tria SmoothBeauty Eye Wrinkle Laser (which you can now get at a whopping 70% off) and Botox like clockwork, I’m really digging these patches for my nightly fight against crow’s feet because let’s just say I’m not getting any younger.
