Gaston Shooting Star Black Eye Gel Patch
I posted my review of the crystal eye patches a few weeks ago and I've been trying these ones ever since.
You might remember me enjoying the previous ones and these are no exception! .
These come in a cute packaging similar to the crystal ones, but this time it's more colourful.
I'm still in love with the space theme! The package has 60 patches which means a total of 30 uses.
The patches are black and have super cute glitter, star shaped and round.
They have a pleasant scent and quite a lot of essence - way more than the crystal ones actually! (It might be just this batch though) .
These two different versions share some of the same ingredients, but this one doesn't have niacinamide and has different extracts.
It has Soybean seed powder, rice, sesame seed, pepper seed, cocoa, centella asiatica and many other extracts.
It also has allantoin in the top of the ingredient list. Because Instagram doesn't give me the space to write about all of them, swipe for the full list!
The main function of these patches is to calm your skin and bring nutrition.
The patches are soaked in essence but they stick to my skin nicely after a while without falling.
The glitter doesn't come off with normal use, but I can't help myself and just pick the glitter out after I'm done using them haha.
I wear them for around 20 minutes usually and they still have some essence left after that.
I really dislike eye patches that dry so fast they suck the moisture out of the skin and these definitely don't do that!
The remaining essence absorbs fast leaving my eye area hydrated and refreshed.
I'm always a bit skeptical about putting anything around my eyes, as I've experienced stinging and burning before from some products.
Luckily I've experienced no irritation with any of the Gaston eye patches!
I'm always very happy to use these and they have been a very welcome addition to my routine during these stressful times (aka exams).
Gaston Shooting Star Crystal Eye Gel Patch
It's time to review the Gaston eye patches finally! I've used these in my evening routine for a couple of weeks.
I wasn't familiar with the brand earlier but I'm happy that I am now! .
The Gaston shooting star crystal eye gel patches come in a packaging of 60 patches, which means 30 uses.
It comes with a spatula. The first thing that caught my eye was the cute packaging and mascot I love space themed things!
The patch itself has glitter in it, which I think is really cute.
Someone might be wondering if it's dangerous, but I've never managed to detach any glitter with normal use and they also claim it's completely safe.
It has quite a pleasant scent, it's not too sweet nor flowery, it's hard to describe.
The ingredients include things like allantoin, niacinamide, calcium panthothenate (vit B5),
sodium ascorbyl phosphate (deriv. vit C) tocopheryl acetate (vit E acet.), hyacinth extract, hyaluronic acid,
galactomyces ferment filtrate and coconut extract (not oil, extract). It claims to moisturize and brighten. Swipe for full ingredient list!
They have quite a lot of essence, but still attach to my face nicely without constant falling.
I've experienced some stinging and burning sensation with other brand eye patches but these don't irritate my skin at all!
They actually feel cooling and refreshing, which makes them pleasant to use.
I tend to remove them after 20-25 minutes. Afterwards my eye area feels so moisturized and refreshed!
It doesn't dry too early like some others I've tried, I can still feel some of the essence left on my skin sometimes.
I cannot comment on the brightening effects because I don't have pigmentation (more like lack of it) around my eyes,
however, niacinamide is very high in the ingredient list so it might actually brighten the eye are for some.
