I think that most people nowadays suffer from chronic under eye bags. Whether they’re from exhaustion or just poor circulation depends on the person but I know that mine stems from both. I have been eyeing up (see what I did there?) the Secret Key Gold Premium Eye Patches for literally years now and finally decided to buy them now that I’m on a proper skincare kick. Secret Key claim that these patches do seven(!) different things including help improve dark circles, but do they?
First up, let’s cover what seven “kinds of concentrated care” that Secret Key Gold Premium Eye Patches claim to achieve. I’ve already covered the treatments of dark circles but they also apparently brighten the skin, improve elasticity, moisturise, cure dry skin, have a calming effect, and “simplicity”. Those quotes are from Secret Key themselves and I also have no idea what they mean by simplicity, don’t worry. A few of those claims could probably combine together but I guess it five doesn’t sound as impressive as seven.
The Secret Key Gold Premium Eye Patch comes with 30 in a tub and a little spatula to help take them out which is super handy. The patches do cover a large area when applied and the promotional images have the models wearing them in different ways (including around their mouths?) but I prefer to have the point towards the outer corner of my eyes, as you can see in the photo below, because it covers more of the under eye area that way. I wear these for the recommended 30 minutes although Secret Key don’t give a suggestion how often to use their patches. Personally, I wear them about 3 or 4 times a week or which whichever days I’m not wearing a face mask.
Obviously, my eyebags haven’t disappeared completely (it’s not as if I expected a miracle) but they have eased up in the two weeks I’ve used them. I have also noticed that my skin around that area has gotten softer with a better texture.
So all in all, I’m actually really impressed with the Secret Key Gold Premium Eye Patch! Even though it does seem a bit of a gimmick from the advertising pictures, I do think they’ve done a pretty good job.
You can buy Secret Key Gold Premium Eye Patch on eBay for £10.99.
