REVIEW: Koelf Ruby Bulgarian Rose Eye Patch

Today, I'll be reviewing the Koelf Ruby Bulgarian Rose Hydro Gel Eye Patches courtesy of Jolse.com! :) 

Being a college student has forced me to stay up late many nights and pull far too many all-nighters. What's worse is that the missed hours of sleep is usually way too obvious because of the resulting dark circles and puffy eye bags. I have been on the hunt for something to help eliminate my dark circles or at least minimize the appearance of tired eyes, so lets see how well these eye patches work!





REVIEW:


Packaging and Design
I cannot get over how gorgeous the packaging for these eye patches are! The patches come in a light baby pink jar with an easy to twist-on/off cap. There's an adorable pink and red floral design on the top of the jar that matches the ruby & rose colored theme of the product. To top it all off, the slogan of Koelf is: "The eyepatch of elves." How gosh darn cute is that! There are 60 patches in each jar, so that means there are 30 uses.

Plus, there's a small, clear plastic spatula included inside the box! This makes separating and lifting the eye patches out a breeze, while also helping keep the jar and eye patches more clean, and germ-free.



Texture and Scent
The Ruby Bulgarian Rose Eye Patches have a hydrogel texture. The gel texture is very smooth and feels cooling and relaxing on the skin. The patches have a pretty pink tint, which matches the overall rose theme, and contains tiny gold sparkling flecks inside the hydrogel. Could this get any more luxurious?!

You may have already guessed it, but the eye patches smell just likes roses! The eye patches are actually soaked in the essence (rose water maybe?), so the rose scent is very strong. If you're sensitive to strong smells, you would probably want to steer clear from these.



Ease of Use
HOW TO USE: After cleansing and applying toner, remove the eye patch from the jar and apply to the under-eye area. Leave on for 30-40 minutes and then remove. Tap the under-eye area lightly for better absorption.

What I love about the Koelf eye patches is that they're the perfect size to fit right into my under-eye groove. These patches are incredibly easy to use and multitask with, so you could apply them and do your homework, watch dramas/tv shows, just lay down and relax, or do anything! They're super low maintenance and surprisingly don't slide around or droop at all, unlike most hydrogels! I just put them on and they stay in place for the whole 40 minutes without me needing to adjust them one bit.



Performance
The cool hydrogel texture of the eye patches helped calm down my tired skin and reduce puffiness in the under-eye area. This helped me appear more awake and a lot less tired. The essence from the patches was very moisturizing and hydrating for my under-eye area and as a result, helped my eyes appear brighter. I looked more awake and a bit more youthful (less tired eye bags = looking younger, right? hehe). 

Here are some before and after shots! The 'before' was taken right after I had removed my makeup for the day and the 'after' was taken after I had washed my face, toned, and applied the eye patches! :)



PROS:

Easy-to-use & Stays in place
Rose-scented (I love flowers!)
Soothing and relaxing on the skin
Reduces puffiness
Hydrates and moisturizes under-eye area
Brightens up the eye area = appearing less tired and more awake



CONS:

Scent can sometimes be too strong



FINAL THOUGHTS?

The Ruby Bulgarian Rose Eye Patches helped to brighten up the area around my eyes while reducing the look of tired eyes and puffiness; it's pretty much magical! These patches certainly do help you appear more awake and bright-eyed by lightening up the under-eye area. My dark circles have yet to disappear, but these patches do help in minimizing their appearance. I highly HIGHLY recommend these eye patches for a quick fix to tired eyes and puffy under-eye areas. This product definitely gets two thumbs up from me!

    1. AHH that's the best compliment ever!! Hehe thank you lovely :D I've been trying to use this eyelash serum/essence from RiRi, but I'm not sure if it's even working >_<

      I'm really surprised these worked so well! It's tempting me to try out the other 'flavors' of the patches! :)
