Another month, another delivery of the Fresh and Flowers Lush-subscription-box! The Daisy Eye Pads were exclusive to June’s Subscription box. After loving both the Cucumber and Rose eye pads from boxes previous to June 2021’s, I was very pleased to see yet another set of eye pads to try.
FRESH IS BEST and all of Lush’s eye pads are best kept in the fridge until you want to use them. The eye pads are a fairly new product from Lush and I can’t get enough of them. D.I.Y at home spa nights have never been so easy.
The Daisy eye pads contain chamomile, butterfly pea flower infusion, fresh aloe gel, carrageenan extract and the ingredient that sets the Daisy eye pads away from the rest – an ox eye daisy flower-head in each!
To use the Daisy eye pads all you have to do is take them out of the 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 on your eyes after a long day.
The Daisy eye pads are full of ingredients that can support and help you maintain healthy skin; Chamomile is particularly good for your eye area as it’a incredibly gentle and has both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, blended with the fresh aloe gel the Daisy eye pads are perfect for soothing tired, puffy eyes.
I’ve said in previous eye pad reviews that some people use the whole of an eye pad for each eye, while others cut their eye pads in half to make them go a little further. Instead of placing the whole thing over your eye, you place half of the cut eye pad just on the under-eye area instead. Due to the daisy-flower-head inside of each of the eye pads I however recommend spoiling yourself by using the whole thing at once when it comes to the Daisy eye pads!
15 minutes with the Daisy eye pads on really does make a difference. Once I have taken them off my eyes feel super refreshed and revived, almost like I have just splashed my face with cold water. The puffiness I get throughout the day is also slightly reduced, it’s a hard sensation to describe but the heaviness your eyes feel when you’re tired just seems to melt away.
Lush’s eye pads are said to stay fresh for approximately 3 weeks, this time frame can however be stretched somewhat if you haven’t handled them without the compostable wrapper too much and (most importantly) 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 delicate part of your body BUT if your eyes are clean before using it (and you are comfortable using it on yourself again) then I don’t see why not. I absolutely adore Lush eye pads, I really hope they make more available outside of the Fresh and Flowers subscription box soon as they are a real treat!
