I was really intrigued when I was approached to try out these Patchology FlashPatch products several weeks ago. I’ve heard of lip and eye gel patches, but have never given them a try. So of course I said yes! Now, this isn’t going to be an in-depth review of using the product long term, but I will be able to share with you my initial thoughts and my results immediately following usage!
If you would like me to share an in-depth review after I’ve used both of these up, let me know in the comments below! I’d be happy to revisit this and share my long-term results if it would be helpful. 🙂
Patchology FlashPatch Lip Gels
These are fun! I have really textured lips and am constantly struggling to keep them from being dry and flaky. I’ve used these about four times since receiving them (a little over a week ago), but they can be used as often as you like. I like to apply them in the morning right after I’ve washed my face and before moisturizing on the days when I want my lips to look realize nice (they’re a bit too pricey to justify using them on the daily!).
I can’t attest to the long-term benefits of uses these Patchology FlashPatch Lip Gels, but I really enjoy the results I get right after I use them. I notice that when I put on lipstick afterwards, the lines in my lips are not as distinct as they usually are. I will say one thing, though…I don’t notice any plumping effects. Maybe with time, but my hopes aren’t high since I do realize I have relatively nice-size lips (…that sounded weird…)
Now are they $50 good? Well, that’s hard for me to say. I am not familiar with the typical pricetag for lip masks like this. If I go through this whole container, though, and see a marked difference in the texture of my lips, I will definitely consider repurchasing!
Patchology FlashPatch Eye Gels
I have been so curious to try out one of these types of eye patches! I have a lot of fine lines under my eyes, like laugh lines, and no matter what sort of setting powder, baking method…it doesn’t matter. By the end of the day I always get creasing there.
The gel patches hold a lot of serum, and even though I don’t keep these in the refrigerator or anything, they have a lovely cooling effect under my eyes. Which really helps to depuff my eyes — which, recently with my 7 month old teething, there has been a lot of dark circles and puffy eyes! After leaving it on for 5-10 minutes, it would start to dry and soak into my skin. After removing the Patchology FlashPatch gels, I pat whatever remains into my skin, which isn’t too much.
The times I’ve used this I have noticed a marked difference in how my makeup — and concealer, specifically — looks throughout the day. The fine lines underneath my eyes are almost non-existant when I apply my makeup. And while at the end of the day there are still some creasing, it isn’t half as bad as it usually is.
Again, it’s really hard to justify the $50 pricetag, but I really do love the results I get after using them. If I experience a long-term benefit from using this whole container up, I would personally splurging on.
And there you have it! My thoughts after experiencing these patches. Have you tried anything like this before? Or these Patchology gel patches specifically?? I’d love to hear how it’s worked for you!
