Should you be using eye masks?

If you suffer from dark circles and puffiness under your eyes, you probably have tried many products to try to correct it.  Dark circles and puffiness can come about from a lack of sleep or hereditary. Either way, there are ways to minimize their appearance without having to pile on the concealer or get surgery in most cases.  There are a plethora of products from creams to masks that can help minimize your eye puffiness and dark circles.  Eye masks are becoming more popular and so I was intrigued by the upsurgence of them over the last couple of months.

There are a ton of eye masks out there that are specifically formulated to help reduce or rid your under eye area of puffiness and dark circles.  Some of them are formulated with vitamin C, caffeine, cucumber extract, hyaluronic acid and more.  Currently, I’m trying different masks and creams to see what will work best on my eye puffiness and dark circles.  I don’t have a favorite as of yet, but I have some that I think are making a difference.  What I’ve found is a combination of masks and creams seem to work the best with creams helping in the long term and masks helping in the short term when you need something immediately.

What are some that you have tried and recommend? Check out a few on list:

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery Eye Mask

This mask is appealing to me because it claims to rejuvenate your eyes to make them look rested, reduce fine lines, and hydrated which is exactly what I need.  I love the fact that you can wear these over night and wake up to refreshed eyes.
