Triggered by a wide-range of causes: stress, the common cold, an early morning, or simply an evening of drinking more wine than water, puffy eyes and dark circles are two universal beauty problems that even the most genetically blessed can’t escape. Luckily, for all of us, there are products out there designed to treat tired, swollen eyes, immediately erasing any evidence of under-eye circles—and the late night that caused them.
One such mini miracle worker is the new AltchekMD Eye Gel Pads. Developed by New York dermatologist Douglas Altchek, MD, these pads deliver supercharged active ingredients to the under-eye region to help reduce puffiness, smooth fine lines and hydrate fragile skin. The gel treatment mask, which, despite feeling thick and cushy to the touch, is surprisingly weightless on the skin, completely odorless and doesn’t leave any residue once removed. Each pad is infused with moisturizing ingredients like vitamin E, glycerin and aloe vera and plumping and corrective agents such as vitamin A and collagen. The immediate hydration deflates under-eye bags, providing instant gratification while the targeted anti-aging ingredients help with longer-term results. Once applied, the product gives off a cooling sensation and keeps the under-eye area feeling refreshed throughout the duration of the 30-minute treatment.
After just one use, skin is noticeably more hydrated and plumper, resulting in a more toned, lifted appearance—even for those with the most unrelenting dark circles. Each pair comes in a single-serving pack so you can pop a packet (or three) in your purse to revive tired eyes whenever the need strikes. A set of 10 treatments retails for $20 on AltchekMD.com.
For a limited time only, NewBeauty readers can enjoy an 8-piece exclusive from AltchekMD (including the eye gel pads) for $75—a savings of more than $100. Enter code “NewBeauty” at checkout to redeem.
