As a bit of a sceptic I was not expecting much from these but, as I had been given them as a gift, I thought I would try them out. Although I found it difficult doing nothing for 15 minutes I was amazed by the results. The skin around my eyes was smoother, the puffiness and shadows under my eyes have gone. Just read what they are supposed to do and can say that they really do work. I will be using these regularly.
