[Today's Obsession] Patchology FlashPatch Eye Gels Review

Patchology FlashPatch Eye Gels Review

They're so barely noticeable I might wear them to the office. 

I'm tired. It's Monday. For some reason every social media outlet I've perused today has reminded me what a swift kick in the ass this day really is. The last thing I want to do is type out some lengthy swill on whatever fab new product I think you should buy. Seriously.

But. 

I think you need this. 

Yes, it's late and I'd rather read the shiny new cookbook Amazon dropped off today (I finally caved and bought Nigella Lawson's magnum cooking opus 'How to Eat'). Or maybe organize my vanity for the 6th time this week or stare at my pores in the mirror. 

But I need to talk to you about these Patchology Flash Patch Eye Gels. We can move past the fact that it sounds like a cheap birth control option and talk about the effects. And the way the little patches wobble beautifully in the jar like jello. 


I know what you're thinking - and, you're right. There isn't anything more satisfying than sticking your finger in the jelly slime and lifting out a wobbly patch. It's heavenly. But if you like being "sanitary" I'm sure you'll appreciate the mini spatula that's provided. These are incredibly easy to slap on and help cool/soothe/depuff/hydrate better than most eye creams I've tried. 

Patchology FlashPatch Eye Gels Review


No, it won't lighten your heriditary eye bags but my ever-optimistic love for beauty products did convince me that I saw brightness after removal. In all honestly I love how cooling these are. I often wake up with itchy, puffy eyes because the face gods have deemed me "sensitive". But these pretty much obliterate any under-eye discomfort on contact. They do contain both caffeine and collagen, and rather high up on the ingredients list too, so snaps for Patchology. The hyaluronic acid is also a nice little boost and will help whichever eye cream you choose to pat on top work even harder. 

You get 30 applications (sixty patches total) which comes out to a little over $1.50 for each application. These are by no means a 'treatment' product, but more of a morning pick-me-up. 

All in all, A-. They work well but I'm not so into the sperm-y shape. A little bit more round and I could fit these up against my eye a bit easier.

Have you tried anything from Patchology, or any other "Hydro-gel" type products? Those giant lip masks seem intriguing, if only for their ridiculousness. Let me know!
