Leave on, Carry on: Tatcha Luminous Deep Hydration Revitalizing Eye Mask

There are few things I’m sure of in the world of skincare, but one thing is for certain: it is inevitable that our eyes will betray our age. It doesn’t matter how tight our skincare game is or how blessed our genetics may be, there comes a time (usually between one’s mid-20s and late 30s) when the eyes are just over it.

It” – being keeping up appearances when seemingly overnight your eyes just feel chronically under-rested, puffy, and fatigued. And stealthy fine lines start to creep in that you swore weren’t there a day ago. No matter how many active eye serums or nourishing eye creams you try, everything feels futile. And you ponder giving in…

But just before throwing in the towel, you decide to try an eye mask, a “hydrating coconut-derived bio-cellulose sheet mask made for the eyes – because why not, what else do you have to lose?

The Tatcha Luminous Deep Hydration Revitalizing Eye Mask is made from a bio-cellulose membrane that forms a moisture-infusing occlusive layer. It’s so healing that the technology was first used to speed up recovery for burn victims. The material of the mask is often overlooked but incredibly important because it dictates how well the serum or juice of the product is infused and locked into the skin. I have used several sheet masks but the texture of these eye patches is unrivaled. Whereas standard sheet masks feel like cotton, this feels almost like a cellulose-silicone membrane that is delicate to the touch and almost reminiscent of natural skin tissue. The patches grab onto the skin when applied almost like there is a suction that forces the serum through to the skin.

Photos of the mask don’t really do it justice.  Just watch the Tatcha instructional video on how to use their eye mask:


Immediately upon application, my under eye area felt simultaneously lifted, hydrated and rejuvenated. The mask felt quenching and awakening, in a way that made me confident in the results before I was even done with my first treatment.

The serum COMPLETELY soaked into my skin within 15 minutes and not wanting a drop to go to waste, I kept it on for 5 more minutes and the mask never felt dry or tight, it held a gel-like buoyancy. When I took off the mask, my eyes just looked *excuse my marketing lingo* radiant and luminous. There are no other words. Those emerging fine lines? Invisible. Puffiness? Eliminated. Dark circles? Faded. Fatigue? Gone. There are few products that deliver such an instant result. I genuinely got the sense that regular and continued use of these patches can really turn back time.

Here is what’s in the serum:

    • Sonically extracted green tea, rice bran oil and red algae which promote nourishment, hydration and antioxidant benefits.
    • Royal Jelly extract and Silk extract, wonderful for easing fatigue and stress.
    • Peony and licorice extract provide brightening benefits.
    • Chamomile and squalene are soothing and nourishing.

One set of the eye masks retails for $12, or you can opt for the 10-pack at Barney’s which retails for $95, which is around a 21% off the price of buying individually. I already have a 10-pack on its way and recommend stocking up on these masks as you’ll want to use them on a weekly basis to keep the results going.
