Wishful Eye Lift & Snatch Sculpting Masks
A favourite amongst many, the Wishful Eye Lift and Snatch Sculpting Mask helps in brightening, lifting, and de-puffing, featuring powerful peptides and orchid stem cells. They are great for on-the-go, resulting in a tighter, brighter, and snatched under-eye due to the non-comedogenic, non-acnegenic, and cruelty-free ingredients used, also following clean-beauty standards. To use these patches, start with a clean and dry face, removing the thin plastic from each mask before gently applying it under the eye, leaving it on for 20-30 minutes, allowing your skin to soak up the gels and elixir. They recommend keeping the mask cool by storing it in the fridge for an extra cooling effect, helping the product to de-puff better, revitalising your tired eyes, and working great as a base for your concealer.
