Let me preface this by saying I am NOT getting paid to tell you guys about this nor am I getting free stuff (I wish). I just took a chance on something at my grocery store and it flippin’ works!
The Worst Bags
Thanks to my genes and late nights writing, I have enough under-eye baggage to take me to Europe. I’ve tried everything from cover ups to creams, to cucumbers to freezing metal spoons and putting them under my eyes. Nothing has worked.
I was at the grocery store a few weeks ago and stumbled upon YES TO Cucumbers 2-Step Eye Kit Buh-Bye Bags & Dark Circles! It’s $3.99. I found mine at Kroger but you can get yours at many places like Ulta Beauty or Target.
It’s a 2 step process. You put these green thingys (yes, that is a technical word) under your eyes for 10 minutes then slather on the cream afterwards.
Make it Last!
Now, it’s suppose to be a one time use but I’ve been known to stretch my dollar with beauty products. For example, I used to go to a makeup counter several times, stating “I’d like to try a product.” They didn’t need to know I’ve been there 3 other times trying the same product.
Anyway, after using the green thingys, I placed them back into the plastic tray they came in and slid them back in the pouch. I then placed the pouches in the fridge and voila! I’ve used this 2 additional times. Now this morning, I realized they were getting a little dry (they give you ample amounts of the cream so I don’t know why they just don’t include a few more trays) so in lieu of putting them back in the tray, I ditched the tray and shoved them into the pouch directly. Why? Because I found that the pouch still has the chemical found in the green thingys so I’m letting the green thingys sop up the chemical for another use.
So for just $3.99, it’s worth it if you’ve struggled with baggage. If you do end up trying it, let me know what you think!
