Eye gels have become a staple in my morning (and evening!) routines. Not only feel super refreshing and cooling on the eyes, they also hydrate, smooth, de-puff, and more. Today I’m trying out an all-natural, vegan eye mask from 100% Pure that also works to brighten the eye area – called their Bright Eyes Mask.
100% Pure Bright Eyes Mask
100% Pure’s Bright Eyes Masks use matcha green tea, yerba mate tea, and green coffee to create a one high-caffeinated treatment for your eyes. When applied to the skin, the caffeine works as an anti-inflammatory and reduces puffiness. Meanwhile, Vitamin C works to brighten the undereyes, aloe juice and hyaluronic acid hydrate, and cucumber lightens and further de-puffs.
The Bright Eyes Masks are made out of hydrogel, composed of 95% organic aloe water and 5% plant cellulose, which works to intensely hydrate, plus help deliver active ingredients onto the skin. The longer you leave the mask on your skin, the thinner the hydrogel mask becomes as the aloe water gets absorbed.
Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis (Organic Aloe Juice)*, Camellia Sinensis (Organic Matcha Green Tea)*, Organic Green Coffee*, Ilex Paraguariensis (Organic Yerba Mate) Tea*, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Hydrosol, Sodium Ascorbate (Vitamin C), Caffeine, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic) Acid, Plant Cellulose * Certified Organic
100% Pure Bright Eyes Mask Review
As per the instructions, I left the mask on for a good 20 minutes. During that rather relaxing time period, I was super impressed by how well the gels stuck to my skin! I was able to move around and get ready without worrying about the coming off or even sliding down (which has been a slight problem for me with eye gels in the past – I’m one who prefers to multi-task while doing my beauty treatments!).
After removing the mask, I could see that the little gels had in fact shrunk and thinned out a bit, meaning the hydrating ingredients had left the mask and absorbed into my skin! And, from what I saw, the after-effects proved it. My skin was looking a whole lot brighter and healthier overall. The mask had also re-hydrated my eye area, smoothing everything out. I skipped the eye cream and applied concealer right over top, and it went on super smoothly and without the usual cakiness that I often see during these drier winter days.
Overall, considering the convenience (they really stick!), the brightening and hydrating effects, the all-natural, good-for-you ingredients, and the fairly low price point ($6-$7 per mask), I can definitely see myself going back for more!
