EyeSlices give your bags a wake-up call

Is a Solution for:
Puffy Eyes
September 29, 2008 Reviewed by Marta 1 Comment
EyeSlices are the modern, hi-tech equivalent of sitting around with cucumber slices on your eyes. The plastic clam-shell package opens to reveal two green, gel-like pads. I had followed the instructions and refrigerated them overnight, so they felt pleasantly cold when I pressed them gently onto my closed lids. Five minutes later my eyes were de-puffed.

EyeSlices certainly did what they are supposed to do and could be indispensable for those mornings after the night before. The most notable ingredient is hexapeptide-11. This is a biofermented peptide derived from yeast. Tests on human dermal fibroblasts have shown that it can boost collagen. There is also antioxidant rice bran and soy proteins. All I can tell you about oxido reductase is that it is an enzyme that transfers electrons from one molecule to another. I can't tell you why that should be a good thing for the bags under your eyes.

On the other hand, I wish EyeSlices had been less heavy handed with all those parabens and I vastly prefer my products to be without phenoxyethanol. I presume they are necessary because each slice can be used up to ten times. My final quibble is they they kept sliding off my eyes - even with my head tilted back at an uncomfortable angle.

Ingredients:

Water, pentylene glycol, propylene glycol, saccharide isomerate, panthenol, aloe leaf extract, saccharomycess lysate extract, glycerin, hexapeptide-11, rice bran protein, soybean protein, oxido reductase, citric acid, buthylparaben, propylparaben, isobutylparaben, phenoxyethanol, methylparaben, ethylparaben, CI 19140 (Yellow-5), CI 42090 (Blue 1).
