I have struggled with intense under eye circles for a long long time.
They suck. I got made fun of so bad when I was a kid that I used to sneak into my mom’s make up bag and steal her concealer. Stealing concealer and smudging it under my eyes was a regular morning routine, even though I was only in the 4th grade.
Needless to say I’m always on the hunt for healthy cures and hacks for those dreaded under eye bags.
When I recently started seeing trendy pics of eye masks on social media, I got excited. I wanted to try every eye mask I could get my hands on. I became a little obsessed.
But if the hunk of comedy if using them – I want to too!
The #1 Cruelty Free Under Eye Masks Everyone’s Talking About…
After doing lots of experimenting – I finally had a favorite go-to pair of cruelty free under eye masks that I truly fell in love with.
Introducing Acure’s Cruelty Free Under Eye Hydrogels:
Why These Are SO GREAT:
- 100% Vegan
- Cruelty Free
- Paraben Free
- Sulfate Free
- Phthalate Free
- Mineral Oil Free
- Petrolatum Free
- Silicone Free
There are a lot of choices for eye masks out there but these help me rest easy knowing they lack a lot of the dodgy ingredients that other eye masks are hiding. (And of course knowing they are Vegan and CF is a must!)
The price on these was only $4.99 at my local Whole Foods. This isn’t too bad of a price tag seeing as I only use them on a weekly basis.

RESULTS AFTER ONE USE
Bright gold is always a good look when you’re laying makeup less on a Sunday morning.
The first time I used these under eye masks, I wasn’t really sure what to expect.
But the second I placed them under my eyes, I was already blown away. They immediately felt so refreshing under my puffy eyes. They were nice and cold and touched with a decent amount of hydrating liquid.
It was like a little mini facial under my eyes- UGH I LOVED IT!
Even though these eye patches don’t slip too much after applying- I do recommend laying down for the full 20 minutes as directed by the package.
After just one use of these under eye hydrogels, my under eyes looked amazing.
There were brighter, tighter, and super moisturized. They looked super nourished and healthy. After the amazing results I saw after just one use, I made it a point to start using these at least once weekly.
It’s a great and relatively inexpensive way to perform a little maintenance and refreshing boost to your under eye area regularly.
***Please Note: Do not- Repeat- DO NOT wear these under eye gels for more than the allotted time on the package (~20 mins). After this time they tend to try out fairly quickly and in turn will dry your skin out as well!***
