Eye Masks to Use When the Weekend Is Showing Up on Your Face
Listen, we all indulge a little bit on the weekends. It's part of life, and honestly, it's fun. But you know what isn't fun? When you're face betrays you and let's everyone know you've engaged in more than a post-work drink and some serious shenanigans. We're speaking specifically of puffy, tired eyes. But thankfully, the year is 2016 and there are many a solution to eyes that show how tired you actually are, like eye masks. They are heavenly. Obviously, we selected some of our faves so you can stay up late without having everyone know your true bedtime.
Sephora Collection Eye Mask
These eye masks by Sephora come in tons of formulations, but I love the avocado because it's super nourishing. It's TLC for a face that might be hurting after one too many martinis, or staying up way too late binging on Netflix. Also, long-term, the avocado works to ensure that your eye area stays supple and line-free for as long as possible.
Joanna Vargas Bright Eye Firming Mask
The only way I could describe this mask is that it's like a vacuum cleaner for any unsightly evidence of exhaustion. It literally tightens up any puffiness (drastically, if you pop these in the fridge), and it also seriously brightens areas where you might have dark circles. These are also large gel patches, so you really cover a lot of real estate in the puffiness department.
Klorane Soothing and Relaxing Eye Patches
I can't live without these babies, mostly because they are unique in that they are always super cooling, even if they haven't been in the fridge. But if you do put them in the fridge, consider them Spanx for the most stubborn eye bags. Give them 10 minutes and you will be wide awake. And your face will be, too.
Tarte Pack Your Bags 911 Undereye Rescue Patches
Best name award? If your face (and probably head) is seriously hurting, these will not fail you. They're gentle and hypoallergenic but no nonsense. And the hyaluronic acid they are infused with will pretty much take care of any indication that you stayed out too late the night before. No dryness, puffiness, darkness, blotchiness, or anything of that stuff to be found. Phew.
