The first sign of a dodgy nights sleep or a really long day is that ‘warm’ and sleepy feeling around the eyes. If my eyes feel like they need to close and rest up, then there’s little hope of a productive day or much longer than thirty minutes watching telly before I start to slip off to the land of nod… So anything that can help me perk up is always welcome. Although I do have some rather pricey solutions and hard working products that provide a helping hand, sometimes all you need is a couple of minutes with a slice of cucumber. These cute eye pads from Dirty Works provide the best of a cooling slice without having to raid the veg drawer; with cucumber extract and soothing aloe vera, the pre-moistened eye pads relieve and rejuvenate peepers that have fallen victim to puffiness and dark circles.
Each pack contains ten individually wrapped pairs of pads, saturated with a cooling solution that smells incredibly refreshing and not unlike cucumber itself. After slipping into a warm bath, resting up in your favourite arm chair or even getting into bed, you simply apply them over each eye (making sure you’re free from makeup) and let them get to work over the course of ten minutes. Instantly they cool eyes and hydrate the skin, refreshing the senses to leave you feeling wide awake; they work brilliantly in the morning if you wake up feeling a little worse for wear, as well as after a long day when you need to soothe your senses. They don’t offer any specific skincare benefits, acting purely as a cosmetic and temporary solution, but they are effective and they’re definitely a little bit fun. At £4.00 for a pack of ten, they’re also incredibly affordable – meaning they’re a treat you can justify integrating regularly into your routine. Will you be hunting out a pack of these kitsch treats this weekend?
The Dirty Works Cucumber Eye Pads are available exclusively from Sainsbury’s, priced £4.00 for a box of ten individually wrapped pairs.
