Etude House Black Hydrogel Eye Patch Review:
I was an hour early to my class one night so I decided to lurk Korean Beauty Boutiques to kill time. I stopped by at Etude House to swatch cushions but I was drawn to mask section and ended up buying this Etude House Black Hydrogel Eye Patch. Since I have tried that SNP Heating Mask, I thought maybe I should give my eyes a treat once in a while. Not to mention, I’ve always wanted to try hydrogel eye patch but I’m afraid to get stuck with a tub-full of unwanted patches so I’m glad to have spotted this product!
- Eye-zone Total Solution: The patch covers the whole eye area to work with all the wrinkles and fine lines
- Dual-moisturizing Effect with Vaseline and Oil: Vaseline and sunflower seed oil nourishes hydrates and comforts tired eye area.
- Eye Makeup Booster: Black Hydrogel Eye Patch creates natural healthy glow and perfectly preps the skin so the eye makeup adheres better with more vivid color.

Etude House Black Hydrogel Eye Patch Review:
It may not appear cost-effective but I actually appreciate that Etude House has come up with a single use type of hydrogel eye mask. To be frank, I am not entirely sure how these sorts of products perform nor would I even get any result out of using it.
If they promise to provide moisture and hydration, can’t I just arrange my sheet mask so that it would cover more skin around the eye area? Can I not just DIY with cotton pads and slap them under eyes? I would just probably smirk off bumping to this product had I not been so engulfed by the Asian Beauty Madness.
Etude House Black Hydrogel Eye Patch, actually more of a goggle comes laid in a plastic tray for convenience. The hydrogel is sandwiched in plastic backing for easier unfolding which is nice. Inside is a black hydrogel that is just polished with oil.
Given that the material is hydrogel, naturally, it wasn’t able to absorb much oil so what I did is glean the oil out of tray, apply it on my skin before topping it with the goggle. This way, I don’t feel that I wasted one bit of product. The oil used in this mask smells nice –it’s soft on my nose like a mixture of faint florals and whatnot.
The fit and adherence of the mask is pretty good on my face so it was easy for me to wear it. It is advised to leave it on for 30 minutes but I only managed to leave it for about 20 minutes or so because my eye area started to itch, particularly my upper eyelid.
The oil must’ve touched my lashes while I was fixing it on my face. I waited a bit for I thought the itchiness would eventually subside but it didn’t so I took it off. I’m just glad that there’s no redness or rash evident upon removal.
Initially, I honestly feel that there’s no difference before and after masking but as I check closely, I noticed that it helped with puffiness. My under eye looked a little flatter? I like the fact that it made my eye area looked less tired, I am quite impressed despite the itchiness!
Overall, Etude House Black Hydrogel Eye Patch is a nice product to try! It is very effective in making your under eye less puffy. I like it so much because it somehow made it appear like I had a good rest. I feel that any people who are conscious about their eye bag would love this product.
I would however advise to be cautious while working it on your face. I take the blame for the itchiness because it happened out of my negligence.
