Cucumber Eye Pads from Lush

 

Immediately after using Lush’s Cucumber Eye Pads for the very first time, I knew straight away that it was a product I always wanted a packet or 2 of at my disposal. Sold in packs of 2, the Cucumber eye pads make at-home, DIY-spa-days quick and easy.

Best stored in your fridge, (fresh is best!) the Cucumber eye pads have a very short and simple ingredients list; Cucumber and carrageenan seaweed. 

To use the Cucumber eye pads all you have to do is take them out of your fridge, unwrap them from their fully compostable wrapping paper, then place them on each eye for approximately 15 minutes. I often wear them for a lot longer as I just love how soothing they feel after a long day.

Cucumber is packed with vitamin c and is an incredibly gentle ingredient making it perfect for the delicate skin around your eyes. As well as cucumber being loaded with vitamin c, it also has both hydrating and anti-inflammatory properties making the Cucumber eye pads perfect for soothing tired and/or puffy eyes.

Used along side a cooling face mask such as the Mask of Magnaminty, you can’t go wrong, especially during a Summer heatwave. Some people use the whole of the eye pad, covering the whole of their eye with each, while others cut their eye pads in half, placing each half under the eye masking their unwelcome eye bags!

I’d love to tell you that the Cucumber eye pads banish away eye bags forever, leaving you looking and feeling 10 years younger but that would be a very unrealistic expectation and any product claiming to do this sadly doesn’t exist. 15 minutes with them on does however leave my under-eye area appearing brighter and really does reduce puffiness.

Fortunately I don’t suffer with my eyes in hay fever season, hay fever instead attacks just my nose and throat. I therefore can’t personally claim that the Cucumber eye pads help with itchy-hay-fever eyes but I’ve heard from several reliable sources that they work a treat for eye-related hay-fever-issues.

The Cucumber eye pads are said to stay fresh for 3 weeks, this time frame can however be stretched somewhat as long as you haven’t handled them without the compostable wrapper too much and have kept them in the fridge.

Would I recommend using them more than once? I want to say no as the eye area is a really delicate part of your body BUT as long as your eye is clean before using it and you are comfortable using it on yourself again then I don’t see why not. As I mentioned earlier, cutting them in half is a great way to make the product go further IF you did want to play it safe and use the eye pads just the once.
