Review: AZN Labs Anti-Aging Eye Gel Patches

 

Getting older… I’m not a fan. I mean, some people relish getting older. Not me. Not at all.

Aside from the obvious (dying), I don’t like getting older simply because I don’t like looking or feeling older. Every day I wake up to a new silver or white hair. I’m finding more and more wrinkles on my face, and my body is making creaking and cracking sounds (that can’t be good). Sigh…

I can always color my hair, and if I exercise I’m sure the cracking sounds my body makes will dissipate. Looking my age is another story. I DON’T want to look my age. I’m 51. I don’t want to look like I’m in my 20’s or 30’s, because that would be unrealistic. Looking in my 40’s would make me happy. That would mean less wrinkles, fine lines and saggy skin.

One of my favorite reasons why I love blogging is because it affords me to try out products that I might not otherwise know about. Such is the case with AZN Labs. I never heard of them until I did a review of one of their products a while ago, their Afterglow Ampoule. You can read that review here – Introducing Afterglow Ampoule by AZN Labs.

AZN Labs has introduced two new products – a Hydrogel Afterglow Lip Mask and AZN Labs Anti-Aging Gel Patches. These products were included inside the awesome gift baskets given out to celebrities and the link at the Oscars back in September. Only the best of the best products are giving out at the Oscars.

AZN Lab’s products contain something called Astaxanthin.

Astaxanthin (AX) was introduced to the cosmetics industry in Japan and is the strongest antioxidant in the world, helping to protect skin from free radical damage and slowing down premature aging, while camellia extract helps to boost collagen production and fight pollutant-induced stress. Due to its unusual molecular structure, astaxanthin is commonly said to be a far more potent antioxidant than other carotenoids and commonly used antioxidants.

Anything to slow down the aging process sounds great to me.

I was sent the eye patches to review.

The AZN Labs anti-aging gel patches have 24K gold and 6,000X the potency of Vitamin C to help lift and firm the delicate eye area in just ten minutes. This luxurious eye treatment gives skin a warm, dewy glow and minimizes dark circles for a revitalized, youthful suppleness under the eyes.

I have never used eye patches before. I have seen them advertised, as well as featured on other blogger’s websites (reviews) and YouTube (reviews).

I watch 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days (it’s one of those “guilty pleasure” shows) and one of the people featured on the show, Tim Malcolm, has been shown wearing under eye patches on more than one occasion (which seemed very odd to me). I could never understand why eye patches appealed to people, and what exactly did they do?

The AZN Labs anti-aging gel patches are suppose to reduce the look of dark circles and fine lines, as well as give your skin a “dewy” appearance.

You can see the spoon-like tool that comes inside the jar of eye patches.

To use the patches, simply remove one for each eye using the special “spoon” that comes with the package. Apply one patch under each eye for 10-15 minutes, then remove and discard.

I wasn’t sure how frequent I could use the patches, so I was only using them twice a week. I was told that they are safe enough to use every day if I wanted to, so I have been using them every other day when I wash my hair.

The first few times I used them it felt a bit weird. They have a bit of a “slimy” feel (which is not necessarily a bad thing) that took a little getting used to. After a few uses I didn’t think twice about it.

Try to position them as best as possible under your eye. I have found if you need to remove them to re-position them, they lose a bit of their “stickiness” (how they adhere to your skin). They don’t actually stick to your skin, but they do adhere enough that they don’t slide around. If you re-position them after you applied them, they will slide around (at least that has been my experience).

The patches actually feel good when you have them on. The gel gives them a cooling effect, which feels nice and soothing. I liken it to what a spa treatment might feel like.

I’ve been using the patches for a few weeks now. The first two weeks I only used them twice per week. After that, every day. For that reason, I might not be seeing the full results of using them.

I love the shimmery-gold look to these eye patches. It makes me feel like royalty when I use them. LOL!

I like the way my skin feels after I remove them (and the gel absorbs into my skin). I think maybe the area under my eye looks a little “tighter,” and not as saggy prior to using the patches. For me, that is a good thing. I HATE those bags under my eyes.

As far as the dark circles, they do seem to be less prominent than they usually are. I don’t sleep that much, so dark circles under my eyes are an every day thing. For people who get adequate sleep, I’m sure these gel patches will work even better on circles under the eyes, since mine are due to lack of sleep and not the normal aging process.

As for wrinkles, that I really haven’t noticed a difference – yet. Unless the bags under my eyes count as wrinkles, since they do have a wrinkly appearance to them.

So far I am please with the AZN Labs anti-aging gel patches. I think with more use I should see even more of a difference.

I am sorry that I don’t have any before/after photos. I am horrible at taking “selfies,” mostly because I hate how I look and I cringe every time I snap a photo. Very rarely am I a happy with how I look in pictures.
