About this time of year we’re all feeling blue and like we need some brightening up – something to make us look like the sun is shining and we’re ready to go bopping around freely. That’s where Repechage Eye Rescue Pads come to the rescue. These eye pads are perfect for any time of day or night. They are refreshing and eye brightening.
I was sent a jar of 60 to test and I can’t get enough of them. They are probably the easiest eye pad I’ve ever used since there’s nothing to it when using them. 1. Take a pad out of the jar. 2. Put it on under your eyes 3. Leave it on for 10 minutes or however long you want. 1,2,3. ABC. You are done and looking refreshed.
Actually I cheat and add an extra step – I cut the pad in half since the reason I’m using this is for my undereye area although it nourishes my skin too. But by cutting it in half I’m getting it closer to my eye and I’m able to make this jar of 60 last twice as long.
REPECHAGE EYE RESCUE PADS contain seaweed and natural tea extracts. The ingredients of these pads are terrific. These are the eye pads I like to use early in the morning since they help to depuff my undereye circles and they are the eye pad I like to use before going out with friends in the evening. In the morning I’ll apply right after my shower while I’m taking my vitamins, trying to make reason with my hair. In the evening I love that they give a cooling sensation while replenishing moisture. I can even do this over my foundation/concealer and after just pat it with my finger to resmooth. These are not sticky or gooey. They contain a serum that is light yet effective.

Not all brands are willing to sell travel sizes but Repechage carries a 14 count travel size for $9 which would be great to have for travel or just to test out to see if these are as great as I personally think they are.
If you are ready to perk up your winter weary eyes with ingredients that are great for your skin, REPECHAGE wants to be your friend. It’s already mine! — Marcia
