Gatineau Strategie Jeunesse Eyepads – Reveiw

2015/01/img_2215.jpgThese little eyes pads from Gatineau are designed as a treatment for special occasions, when you want to look that little bit more refreshed and awake.
Gatineau claim that after wearing these for approximately 10-15 minutes you will be left with an eye area that has less dark shadows and plumper skin reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

The pads themselves are cloth based, rather than some of the cheaper rubbery feeling pads, some other brands have to offer. So before I get down the nitty gritty I would just like to say I didn’t actually purchase these myself, I received one pair as part of January’s look fantastic beauty box. As these are not cheap I’m glad I have had the opportunity to try them before committing to making a purchase.

So, here are my before and after pics, apologies they are not very glam.

Well, I can’t say I’m overwhelmed. The second after picture initially looks like there is a noticeable difference. I wanted as close a like for like comparison as I could achieve. The second after pic tells a very different story. There is no difference in purple shadowing what so ever. I do feel they do look a bit less puffy though.

I don’t really think that I saw enough of a difference for me to be rushing out and buying these. This is reinforced by the price point attached to them. for £5.75 a treatment I want clear visible results, these just don’t so that. At best they are a nice pick me up but I can get that from a similar product at a much lower price. One redeeming quality they do have though is that they do stay in place better than other pads I have used, you can move around with out them falling off.

Maybe I should just stick to cucumbers? If do have any suggestions for alternative eye pads leave a comment below.

Bye for now, Katy
