Today I will be reviewing , Wilma Schumann Skin Care Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads. I received it in my August,2016 Birchbox.
The eyepads comes in a white and purple pack. And I have 2 eyepads in this pack. A fullsize of these eyepads usually retails for $18/- (USD).
This is a sample pack. These 100%collagen eyepads hydrate the under eye area and ease puffiness.
I tried this out and it felt really awesome! The pack is easy to open and consists of a tray with 2 white, slimy, rubbery eyepads soaking wet in a liquid.
The liquid itself smelt like roses. I checked for the ingredients and sure enough it contained Rosa Rugosa (Rose) flower extract which acts as an anti inflammatory apart from just smelling good!
It also contains hydrolyzed collagen so lets find put what it is and what it does. Because on this blog not only do you get reviews but also get bit of a sciency update.
So I did a bit of research and apparently “Hydrolyzed collagen is collagen that is derived from bovine bone and cartilage. (That means cow bone and cartilage!) Usually, the bone is crushed, ground, defatted, soaked in acid to remove the calcium, soaked again to break the collagen bonds and then dehydrated.”
Use of hydrolyzed collagen in cosmetics aids in moisturization. Hence when used in eye pads and then applied on the under eye area, the under eye area would be moisturized.
So I used it an as per instruction stuck it under my eyes and it felt cool and slimy to the touch. It also kept sliding off!
Another thing I noticed was the size of these eyepads. I think they’ve made a one size fits all.
For me they were fairly large.After use my under eye area felt slightly taut.
However, whether it will remain as is, is yet to be seen.
