The Scoop on Eye Patches

The Scoop on Eye Patches

One of the easiest ways to give your skin a glow up is with eye patches. A Korean skincare favorite, hydrogel eye patches are lightweight masks shaped to hug the under eye area. They’re packed with restorative ingredients and give much needed love and attention to the most delicate skin on your face, that is often the first area to show signs of aging.

Eye patches are ahhh-maz-ing as skin prep for makeup or to wind down the day. Pop them on for 15-20 minutes at least once a week to instantly depuff, brighten and hydrate,, and give you long-term benefits like reducing the appearance of fine lines and dark circles. Try them:

  • While you get ready in the morning. Drink coffee, make the bed and prep breakfast all while wearing your eye patches.
  • Before a wedding or event. Apply eye patches post-face cleansing so your skin can soak up all the goodness while you get your hair or nails done, steam a gown or pop a little bubbly.
  • After a long workday. Nurture your under eyes after a long day of hustling. Busy workdays can really take a toll. We get it, sometimes we forget to drink water and take breaks too.

Soon Skincare has three eye patch formulas that can be used on all skin types to target your skin’s under eye needs. So whether you’re sleep deprived, dehydrated, stressed or looking for a little extra luxury, we’ve got you covered.

Renew the under eye area with Golden Eye 24K Gold Hydrogel Eye Patches, formulated with 24K gold (seriously!), allantoin and glycerin. These patches increase skin elasticity, hydrate and slow the loss of collagen. Plus, they look totally glam.

Depuff with Pomegranate Hydrogel Eye Patches with Collagen. Pomegranate, caffeine and niacinamide help to reduce puffiness, hydrate and plump the under eye area, and minimize the appearance of fine lines. The addition of marine collagen replenishes the skin’s natural loss of collagen as you age.

Lip Masking 101

Lip Masking 101

Dry, cracked lips are never fun, but a lip mask? That is our idea of fun. Our lip masks are a Korean skincare favorite, using lightweight, comfortable hydrogel infused with the lip-loving ingredients aloe and allantoin that improve moisture retention all day and all night. 

Our Strawberry Lip Masks with Collagen also have, you guessed it, strawberry to reduce dark spots and wrinkles, and give your lips a dose of vitamin C. Strawberry is rich in antioxidants which help fight free radicals. (Remember those?) An added boost of marine collagen helps plump the skin and has long-term anti-aging benefits. 

The Hydrating Watermelon Lip Masks use watermelon, which not only hydrates the skin but also helps seal moisture in for long-lasting hydration. The addition of niacinamide increases cell turnover, an essential process for anti-aging. Lip masks are good for all skin types, so you can’t go wrong with these K-skincare products. 

So, when do you use a lip mask? Try it: 

  • In the morning. Ever heard the advice to drink 8 oz. of water upon waking to replenish your body’s hydration? Your lips (and the rest of your skin!) need the same attention. After cleansing your face, apply a lip mask and restore any loss of moisture during your good night’s sleep. 
  • Right before bed. Air is typically cooler and drier overnight which can lead to dry, cracked lips in the morning. Giving your skin an extra boost of hydration before bed should reduce any discomfort during the night and in the morning. 
  • In the bath. While you soak, the heat from the water should help open up your pores and allow for better absorption of hydrating and anti-aging ingredients. Apply your lip mask, sit back and relax.
  • Before an event. Incorporate a lip mask into your prep process for a date night, party or any other special outing. Your lip products will apply better and last longer on smooth, hydrated lips.
