As many Korean face masks crowd our Instagram feeds, it’s a real surprise that the best Korean eye masks are not thought about any more. Although face masks are great at fixing anything from dry skin to clogged pores, there’s no denying that these full- sheets and bubble mask jars aren’t built with the delicate skin around our eyes in mind. You should never, after all, apply a drying clay mask to your undereye region.
Ready to put on any of these ultra-hydrated, sometimes comma-shaped, cooling masks? Here you’ll find five of the best Korean eye masks to help combat each aggressor’s effects that affect the delicate area around your eyes. If it’s the UV rays of the sun, failing to remove your makeup before bed or not having enough sleep, when applied to your weekly routine, these easy-to-use masks can be a complete eye-saver!
Etude House Collagen Eye Patch
The region around your eyes is delicate, and if you have sensitive skin you’re going to want to be extra vigilant about what’s going on around your eyes, so that’s where these hypoallergenic eye masks come in. Such masks will immediately awaken your undereye area by deeply hydrating, brightening dark circles, tightening the skin and improving elasticity by using collagen essence made of natural fiber and botanicals. Infused with vitamins A and E as well as green tea extract, these stick-on undereye masks can also be expected to work wonders after a long day to soothe the under-eye area. If you’re using them before bedtime or before your morning make-up routine, you should expect an under-eye region that looks like more radiant.
Petitfee Black Pearl and Gold Hydrogel Eye Patch
Try using a collection of these black pearl and anti-inflammatory gold hydrogel eye patches before you head for a color-correcting concealer to counter discolouration under your eyes. Such special eye patches are formulated with black pearl and pure gold powders and are intended to enhance blood circulation, thereby reducing the appearance of dark circles. What’s more, since they are jam-packed with hyaluronic acid and rose, they hydrate your undereye region deeply while at the same time relaxing to minimize puffiness and undereye bags.
Gold & Snail Hydrogel Eye Patch
For a bright-eyed look, these anti-inflammatory, 24-karat gold-infused eye masks shine and re-contour undereyes. What’s more, because it’s made with snail slime extract, aloe vera, ginseng, caviar and green tea — all ingredients known for their extremely hydrating and calming effects — you should expect the skin around your eyes to look more hydrated than ever before. And, if you want an extra calming boost, try to pop them in the fridge before they turn on.
Gold Racoony Hydrogel Eye & Spot Patch
These hydrogel eye masks are designed to moisturize, brighten, nourish, soothe, and relax the skin under your eyes with naturally dissolving, eye-boosting essences that gradually dissolve into the skin, making the mask thinner and thinner as time goes by. Instead of tossing away the mask after you’ve had your fair share of TLC, drop the masks in water to remove it and use it on the rest of your face as a brightening essence. Then, as with any other areas of your face requiring a full dose of brightening, hydrating control, just slap one of the circular patches on and let it work its magic.
Mother Made Moisturizing Eye Mask & Deep Soothing Sun-Zone Mask
If you want to deeply hydrate your entire eye region with a strong eye mask filled with hyaluronic acid, or soothe sunburn and inflammation under your eyes, this set of paraben- and fragrance-free Korean eye masks has covered you. All masks come bundled as an essence and a dry capsule. In essence you drop the capsule to make your eye mask come alive. Where the hydrating eye mask is designed for deep hydration to fully cover your eyes (including your eyelids!), the calming sun-eye mask is intended to nourish the skin under your eyes, reaching into your cheek region.
