I love hydrogel eye patches! It has such an refreshing and cooling effect on tired eyes, be it in the mornings or in the evening. I received the Sense of Care Hydrogel Eye Patches awhile ago from StyleKorean, just in time when my SNP Bird’s Nest Aqua Eye Patches have been finished. Here is a quick review about these patches:
The brand Sense of Care (SoC) is distributed by RainbowBeauty. I didn’t know that brand previously, so actually I don’t know if the brand is called SoC or Sense of Beauty :D If anyone knows more, please let me know. The have a bunch of skincare products available on their site, mainly masks. There are three versions of the hydrogel eye patches available: SoC Gold Snail Hydrogel Eye Patch, SoC Black Pear-EGF Hydrogel Eye Patch, and the SoC Pearl-Diamond Hydrogel Eye Patch.
I received the Sense of Care Black Pear-EGF Hydrogel Eye Patch and the Pearl-Diamond Hydrogel Eye Patch. All the eye patches come in jars containing 60 pieces of hydrogel patches. The patches are directed towards all skin types and are skin translucent, have moisturizing and nutritious properties. In order to use the patches you have to wash your face first, apply toner around your eyes and place the patches in a proper position onto the skin. Leave the patches for 20-30 minutes before you remove them.
The SoC Black Pearl-EGF Hydrogel Eye Patch has a high level of amino acids and minerals. It contains Titanium Dioxide and hyaluronic acid as key ingredients. I also spotted Saccharomyces Ferment filtrate and Snail secretaion filtrate, aswell as collagen and EGF. The SoC Pearl-Diamond Hydrogel Eye Patch contains nano diamond for vitalizing and brightening. Most of the ingredients within the Pearl-Diamond Patches are identical to the Black Pearl-EGF Patches. To be honest the differences are so small that for me it appears that only the color of the hydrogel eye patch and the packaging is really the difference.
Each jar comes with a plastic spoon to take out the patches. Since they are made from hydrogel it can be a bit tricky and slippery to take them out. As you can see both eye patches are made from a translucent hydrogel material. The jars are filled with the essence and keep the patches moist and nice. You have to be careful to seperate the patches and not to take out several eye patches that were stuck together.
Applying hydrogel patches can be sometimes a hazzle. Depending on how much essence is on the patch it might slide around and not stay on its place as desired. There are days that the patches don’t stay at all and other days were they are stuck perfectly. By the way you can also use the patches on your smilelines. Below you see how the Pearl-Diamond Patch looks like when applied.
The eye patches have a cooling effect and of course the essence will moisturize the area around your eyes perfectly. I always have the feeling that I look more awake and relaxed after applying eye patches in general and the SOC Hydrogel Eye Patches have the same effect on me. The skin looks refreshed and more healthy afterwards. I didn’t feel any specific differences between the two types though. For me the effect was similar in both cases.
I’m not sure whether I would repurchase these hydrogel patches. They are good, but also not really much different than other patches I tried. These patches will also last me some while so I doubt that I will be buying other ones any soon. :D It is a bit dissapointing though that there is no real difference between the two types of eye patches.At the moment they are not available at StyleKorean anymore but on the official site they retail for 19500 Won (~20 US$). I would say that the price seems fair for the amount of patches in each jar.
Did you try any products from this new Korean brand already?
