Remember when we reviewed the original “Patchology Energizing Eye Kit” and were very dubious about the claims but lo and behold, we were amazed with the results – decreased puffiness, diminished lines and a general refreshed look, as if we’d had a good nights sleep? The only problem was that we had to plan ahead because although they work in 20 minutes or less, we discovered to really get the maximum results, we needed to leave them on for 60 minutes, or longer. (It varies with everyone.)
So we’re happy to hear about the new “FlashPatches” which work in a little as five minutes. Let’s say we’re as happy as some of the models at NTFW, who get off an International flight and go straight to the catwalk, with just a break for beauty and hair in between.
At the Tadashi Shoji New York Fashion Week show (photos below) , Celebrity aesthetician Eileen Harcourt and her skincare team applied the new Patchology FlashPatches under each models’ eyes upon their arrival backstage. Utilizing something called ‘HydraSurge 5 technology’, it provided models with a quick 5-minute hydra gel eye patch treatment to relieve puffiness, eye fatigue, and to deeply hydrate eyes revealing a smoother, brighter, youthful appearance that makes a perfect canvas for make-up application.
Here’s the beauty breakdown:
WHAT IT IS: A pampering, 5-minute hydra gel eye patch used daily to relieve puffiness, eye fatigue, and to deeply hydrate eyes revealing a smoother, brighter, youthful appearance for a perfect pre-makeup finish
WHY IT’S UNIQUE: The affordable luxury of an eye spa in a Jar containing multiple patches that work in a flash
