Under eye patches are one of the most popular at-home spa treatments. These patches can provide a variety of beneficial ingredients directly to the delicate skin of the under eye area. Under eye patches may be targeted to decrease puffiness, smooth fine lines, or minimize dark circles.
The skin under the eye is unique. It can be up to 10 times thinner than the skin on the rest of your face. This skin is especially delicate and can show signs of dehydration and aging more quickly than other areas on your face. Due to the capillaries being so close to the surface of the skin, the under eye area shows fluid build up (puffiness) and broken capillaries and bruising (dark circles) more prominently.
Under eye patches, such as Frownies Under Eye Gels, are ideal to deliver targeted ingredients to treat the most prominent concerns of the under eye area such as fine lines (crows feet), puffiness, and dark circles.
What makes Frownies Under Eye Gels unique:
Frownies Under Eye Gels are reusable! One pack is enough for approximately one month of treatments. Each pack contains three sets of the cactus collagen eye gels. And each set is reported to last three to five treatment sessions.
Use Frownies Rose Water Hydrator with hyaluronic acid to keep Frownies Eye Gels moist between uses. For an added benefit, store the eye gels in the fridge for a cooling effect.
There is little to no waste when using Frownies Under Eye Gels. The eye gel will appear to shrink as it is absorbed directly into the skin over three to five applications. Any remnants of the eye gels are biodegradable and compostable.
Cactus Collagen - The cactus extract is loaded with essential fatty acids to keep the skin hydrated and plump, amino acids which stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, and Vitamin E to fight free-radical UV damage. Cactus extract should be the secret ingredient in everyone’s skincare routine!
Hyaluronic Acid - Hyaluronic acid (HA) is one of the top skincare ingredients recommended by dermatologists. HA is capable of holding up to 1,000 times its weight in water, making it ideal for locking in hydration into the skin and smoothing the appearance of fine lines around the eyes.
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) - Niacinamide is known to have a variety of benefits to the skin. The B Vitamin helps build keratin in the skin to keep the skin firm and protected, can strengthen the ceramide lipid barrier to retain moisture, reduces inflammation, and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles.
Aloe Vera - Aloe vera is known for its skin healing properties. It is widely used to soothe irritated, itchy skin and aid in the healing of minor cuts and abrasions. Aloe vera is easily absorbed into the skin, making it ideal for all skin types from oily to dry.
Frownies Under Eye Gels do not have an adhesive and may slide down on the first applications due to their gel consistency. So lay down and relax for 15-30 minutes while the amazing ingredients penetrate deep into the skin. You will notice a difference in the mirror right away!
