SK-II Signs Eye Mask Review

Summer is already here and for me it means less sleep, and well hello puffy eyes! So I got the SK-II Signs eye mask to give my eyes a little tlc.

Product Info
SK-II Signs Eye Mask is ultra-comforting cotton mask swiftly and effectively reduces the signs of ageing and dryness around your eyes.

It combines intense hydrators with a blend of Pitera, vitamins and dual peptide technology. In just one application Signs Eye Mask is proven to visibly brighten the skin tone under eyes and improve the appearance of skin dullness, whilst also reducing the appearance of dark circles, fine lines, and replenishing skin’s moisture for up to 12 hours of hydration.

Pitera is the key ingredient in SK-II skincare, This naturally occurring extract is scientifically proven to deliver seven beneficial effects and works to maintain the skin's natural renewal cycle. It supports your skin’s natural functions, replenishes moisture, smoothes surface texture, balances PH, enhances clarity, regulates sebum and evens skintone.

With just one application, appearance of fine lines is noticeably reduced, dullness of the skin under the eyes is visibly lightened and your eyes look visibly brighter.


How to Use
Place the mask with the film cover side up, with the broader end meeting the outer corner of your eye. Remove the film and leave it on for about 10 to 15 minutes. Do not rinse after applying. Use twice weekly after cleansing.

So in every pack of eye mask there is a set of masks that have a white sheet of plastic stuck to them to keep them in place.

Soft cotton cloth masks that fit the shape of the eye area. It is quite large in size. There is not as much serum as you would expect, sometimes you see masks dripping with texture, this has a lot less serum to it.

Doesn't have a particular strong smell. Just smells like any unscented masks. Not heavily perfumed mask is a plus! 

My thoughts on this product
I find it very cool and refreshing on my tired eyes. I've been experiencing dry patches around my eyes, particularly around my tear duct (how odd!), and it helped to hydrate the area and I can see and feel that the skin around my eyes are less dry. After I applied it and left it on for about 15 minutes I pat the serum into my skin and did some massaging to increase blood circulation and then applied my makeup afterwards, it felt very radiant. I think these are great eye masks, however, rather expensive even for weekly use! Thus, I only use when my eyes are feeling a bit more tired than usual or when I have important events.

Do you use any eye masks? How do you fix tired eyes?
