My Experience with Petitfee Gold Hydrogel Eye Patch
I’ve tried a few of hydrogel eye patches in the past. Didn’t think I would purchase another any time soon. I’ve had this product since summer. Used it about 6 times. Stopped for a while. I’m not that into eye patches, to be honest. I think they’re OK. I just don’t think they make a huge difference in my skin. A good moisturizer does a better job, and it’s less expensive than an eye patch. So I started to use hydrogel eye patches again since I have it. And good news! The product is still good to go! Just like when I purchased it. 👍🏻
This is the gold version from Petitfee. There’s 30 pairs of eye patches per jar. The purpose of this skin care product is to treat the eye area by instantly moisturizing, removing dark under eye circles, eliminate swelling, and irritation. It fills the skin cells with moisture, protects against aging, and smooths out wrinkles.
That sounds pretty good. Now here are my thoughts on Petitfee Hydrogel Eye Patches!
Hydrogel eye patches feel luxurious, in my opinion. I think they’re fun to have around if you want to splurge a little. The product is very easy to use. It comes with a little spatula, but I lost it. I thought the little spatula was annoying, lol. So I wash my hands before I pick out a pair of hydrogel eye patch. They’re soaked in essence. I apply it to my under eye area that has been cleansed with no product on. The hydrogel eye patches can be used on other parts of the face too if desired. I just use it as intended (the eyes). I have a moisturizer for other parts of my face including my eye area.
When using the hydrogel eye patches, I can’t use it standing up. The eye patches slip down just a little bit. So what I do is lie down and just take a mini nap. The instructions of this product states to leave the eye patch on for 10-15 minutes. I leave it on for ~15 minutes. Let my skin soak up the essence. There’s no irritation or burning. After I’m done with the eye patch, I remove them and toss them out. I don’t rinse the product off. Just leave it on the skin and go about my usual skin care routine. You can place this product in the fridge too if you want a cooling effect to help with puffy eyes.
This is something I do every 2 weeks or so. I tried to do it more often, but it’s really time consuming for very little results. If you expect to remove saggy under eye bags, dark under eye circles (as it claims that it should do), or smooth out under eye wrinkles, you’re in for a disappointment. All it’s really doing is moisturizing the skin. It’s not a surge of moisture either. It’s very light moisture. A regular moisturizer does a better job and for less the price or same amount. I think that’s why I don’t use hydrogel eye patches too often. I don’t feel like I’m getting much out of it for the time put in.
The ingredients in this product are nice. It contains ginseng root extract, bird’s nest, aloe extract, hyaluronic acid, rose flower water, hydrolyzed collagen, gold (1ppm) to name a few.
An open jar of Petitfree Gold Hydrogel Eye Patches! I’ve had these for a while, and I’m going to repeat that they haven’t dried out at all.
Pros & Cons
- Light moisture. Don’t expect too much out of it.
- Gentle on the skin
- Soothing and relaxing
- Contains ginseng root extract, bird’s nest extract, aloe, hyaluronic acid, rose flower water, hydrolyzed collagen, gold (1ppm). Gold is the last ingredient.
- Doesn’t improve dark under eye circles
- Not much of a change in my skin
The product looks and sounds very fancy and makes it seem like it’ll do something for the under eye area, but my experience says otherwise. The main reason why I don’t use it too often (from past experience). I just bought it to try it out again, and I haven’t used a hydrogel eye patch in a while. I’m not sure I’m going to pick up another jar. We’ll see. Maybe those mini naps I have might be doing some good when using them. It’s always good to reduce stress and just relax after a long day. These hydrogel eye patches force me to do so, haha!
Picked up a tub of CeraVe Healing Ointment!
I picked up a tub of CeraVe Healing Ointment! I have a tube of Aquaphor, but it wasn’t working too well for me. It made my skin really itchy, didn’t glide on my skin easily, and didn’t help moisturize my skin that much either. Yeah, I know it’s an occlusive, but I needed something that my skin could tolerate much better. I’ve always wanted to try CeraVe Healing Ointment. I also have the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream, but there’s no way I can use that cream on my face. It contains ingredients that clogs pores. On my skin, it does. It could work for someone else. Everyone’s skin responds differently to products. So this ointment contains petrolatum as the main ingredient (46.5%). An effective occlusive that helps to seal in moisture into the skin. It also contains dimethicone, ceramides, cholesterol, vitamin e, hyaluronic acid, and panthenol. This healing ointment is just petroleum jelly with extra skin care benefits. And that’s exactly what I wanted. Also, I was curious to see if the CeraVe Healing Ointment surpasses Aquaphor or plain ol’ petroleum jelly.
This product was formulated to temporarily protect, soothe, and hydrate the skin. It contains ceramides to help restore and maintain the skin’s natural barrier. Hyaluronic acid to help retain skin’s natural moisture. Suitable for dry, cracked, and chafed skin. Fragrance-free and lanolin-free. It says it’s non-comedogenic (we’ll see!!), preservative-free, and dye-free.
Here’s my experience with CeraVe Healing Ointment! ☺
I started using CeraVe Healing Ointment not too long ago. About less than a week ago. I thought about using it on my face, but I decided not to. Just not yet. I’ll leave it for days when my skin ever gets irritated and red. I tried using Aquaphor and 100% Pure Petroleum Jelly during those times, and I felt like clawing my face off! With this healing ointment, I use it on sensitive areas like my eye area and neck. I have really dry skin around my eyes and my neck gets really itchy. I can’t just use anything on it. It gets irritated really fast. This healing ointment helps to seal in moisture while providing skin repairing ingredients and moisture to the skin. I’ve had no irritation from this product in those areas, and I really love it! It also helps to prevent my acne treatments from drying my eye area out or leaking down to my neck area and preventing rashes.
The healing ointment feels soft and smooth. It’s thinner compared to Aquaphor (if you have used that before) and a little bit lighter compared to pure petroleum jelly. Just a tad. Since CeraVe Healing Ointment contains other beneficial skin care ingredients besides petrolatum, it makes the product even better. I needed some extra moisture and healing properties in a petrolatum-based product. I tried using it all over my body, and it made the skin on my body feel silkier and softer. My skin felt super moisturized. But, I couldn’t continue to use it all over my body for a reason. My skin started to get itchy. It must be due to the stickiness of the product. So I think this healing ointment is really good at spot treating dry, taut, and irritated areas of the skin instead of using it as an all-over body moisturizer. It’s a nice product to have around just in case to treat skin flare-ups.
The product does come in a jar. Not sanitary at all. So I make sure to wash my hands before dipping my fingers into the jar. A spoon can be used too to scoop out the product. I’m not sure if I’m going to purchase the jar version again if I ever consider using it on my face. As you can see, I’ve been using the ointment from the seal, lol. I haven’t poked at the ointment in the jar yet, haha! Soon…
This is what the ointment looks like. It comes sealed.
Pros & Cons
- Contains ceramides and hyaluronic acid
- Nice petrolatum product!
- Feels silky and soft
- Glides on very easily
- Doesn’t irritate the skin
- Leaves the skin feeling softer
- Comes in a jar.
So far, I really like this ointment. I love that it’s not just a petrolatum skin care product. It contains other ingredients, such as ceramides and hyaluronic acid. It’s also fragrance-free and lanolin-free. I wonder if it’s the lanolin in Aquaphor that’s making me itchy. I’m not allergic to lanolin, by the way. Just a thought. Well, not that I know of. The only downside to the product (as of now) is that it comes in a jar. Perhaps I’ll just purchase the tube version when I finish the jar. I’m not sure how long that’s going to take because this tub of petrolatum comes in a decent size. Overall, I like it a lot more compared to Aquaphor and Pure Petroleum Jelly. It’s working!
