While shopping in Sasa, I was intrigued by this Skinlite Cooling Cucumber Pads. At first glance, it looked really artificial and I had my doubts whether to purchase it or not. The information at the back said that it's pre-moistened with real cucumber and other soothing ingredients. Since it's retailing at only RM4.90, I decided to give it a try as my eye bags is a never ending problem.
In a packet of 10 sheets, I was surprised that these cucumber pads are light scented as I expected it to be 'artificial' and slightly oversaturated with the scents. But it turned out to be alright, it's just light and practically scent-free when the sheets are taken out individually.
rawr! cucumber eyed pirate (sorry, I haven't removed my eyeliner but please do when you put on the cucumber pads)
After removing your makeup and cleansing your face, place the pads on top of your eyes for about 10 to 15 minutes. According to the direction, you can also place it on your other face area. I haven't tried on the face areas except the eyes. If you like a cooling effect, place the pads in the refrigerator before using :)
I have been using these cucumber pads for a few weeks and it has helped me reduce the puffiness on my eye bags temporarily. It's really refreshing as well! I usually apply the cucumber pads before I go to sleep and take it off after 15 min. After that, I'll just lightly massage the eye area with the remaining moisture and sleep through the night. The next day, the puffiness will be reduced :D
