Review : Envie De Neuf Thalasso-Decompress Eye Mask
A cooling, hydrating eye mask freshly resets the eyes in one go.
Dramatically decompresses, tones tired eyes to be rested-looking, eyelids lighter and brighter and sensationally stress-free. Freshen up the eyes as like you just wake up after eight hour of sleep.
A good friend of mine, has a colleague who swears by this brand. She received some eye masks from her colleague and promptly passed one to me.

Containing a fabulous formula with algae and coral weed extracts, multiple botanical compound of cucumber, white tea and sea mayweed extracts and fascinating deep-sea micro-organism Abyssine 657 to infuse the eye areas with concentrated doses of high powered ingredients.
That friend of mine, developed allergies to the mask, with itchness after trying 1 sheet. Thankfully, it works fine on my eye area. The eye sheet mask, with a protective layer is folded up in the packaging.
It has a distinct scent of marine, probably that of algae and coral weed extracts.
The material is thin and soft and provides a comfortable fit on the eye area. It has 2 slits in the middle, though the slits are too small for you to open it up fully. The mask is large and covered a significant area of the upper eyelids and lower undereye area, as well as covering the area where crow feet are usually found.
I used it for 15 minutes, until 9pm and amazingly, the fine lines under my eyes were much reduced and smoothened. Eyes looked fresher and less tired. The effects were still there just before I hit the bed at midnight.
However, such effects only last temporarily as my fine lines are back the following morning. Personally, I think its a great spa treat when you have an important date or event. I like the comfortable and relaxed feel, especially after a long day at work. Its very rare that an eye mask works for me. Definitely a keeper!
