If I were to call these little cubes miracle-working lifesavers, I don't think I'd be doing them enough justice. A few minutes spent with these babies and your under-eye area will be totally and completely rejuvenated. Seriously, if you only keep one thing in your freezer besides ice cubes, this is what you want to have in there.
To be honest, I really didn't think these cubes would do anything. I tend to get very dark under-eye circles and puffiness even when I've gotten tons of sleep, so I had my doubts that anything would make those two pesky traits dissipate. But, based on the fact that I pretty much love everything PTR does, AND because the packaging alone made me curious, I decided to give them a shot.
Each glasses-shaped package comes with 6 cubes. You really do keep the whole package in the freezer so that the green liquid freezes (hence becoming cubes). A blend of cucumbers, arnica, green tea, chamomile, aloe, caffeine and hyaluronic acid make up the kelly green liquid, all of which work to reduce the look of dark circles, fine lines and puffiness while hydrating and calming the eye area.
When you're ready to use one of the cubes, simply pop one out of its container and place it in one of the accompanying single-use cloth bags. Start to rub it back and forth along the under-eye area, spending ample and equal time on each eye. As the cube starts to melt, you'll definitely notice it running down your cheeks, but you'll also notice a cooling and refreshing sensation occurring underneath your eyes. The entire process takes about 3 minutes.
And when you're done? VOILA! The circles and puffiness are GONE. Really and truly! I can't believe how much more refreshed my eyes look every time I use these.
Now those late nights can be your little secret...
