I was really excited when Koh Gen Do sent me single use packets of their Macro Vintage Stretch Eye Sheet and Essence Mask, but it seemed too indulgent to use on any old day. I have this habit of saving some of my more luxurious goodies, and this was no exception. I broke out the Macro Vintage Stretch Eye Sheet, and I completely loved it. Here's what Koh Gen Do says about the mask on their website.
Designed to moisturize, lift, and combat wrinkles, this little mask sounds pretty heavenly to me. :) At $60 for 12 sets, this is also more affordable than the recently popular Le Metier de Beaute option, and that is pretty exciting too!
The "eye sheets" themselves come in a little tray that helps keep the emollient material in the cloth. The shape of the cloth was unusual to me at first, and it took me a minute to think about how it should fit on my face! (Lol, I have spacial issues sometimes!) So, instead of trying to describe how to apply the shape to your eyes, I've included the "How To" from Koh Gen Do's website. (Do check it out, they do have a whole eye routine that looks really wonderful!)
So anyways, once I figured out how to apply this mask, I wore it for about 20 minutes even though the instructions say 10. When I removed the mask, my eyes felt very moisturized and firm. I imagine for those who are concerned about sagging or loss of elasticity, this would do wonders.
What I was really excited to see was that the corners of my eyes were lifted!! SERIOUSLY! The outer corners of my eyes definitely droop downwards, but after this mask, no more downward droops!! Out of the blue, my boyfriend even told me my eye area was glowy and soft!
Based on the moisture and lift, I would definitely use this mask again. I haven't tried much in the realm of eye masks, but this one is such an affordable luxury in comparison to other high end skincare brands on the market. I've felt nothing but love for the other Koh Gen Do products I've tried, so I do urge you to give this a try!!
