Recipe for Men

Birchbox Breakdown

You might not get the recommended eight hours of sleep every night, but you don’t need to look the worse for it. Recipe for Men has developed these patches to repair skin damage and restore a healthful glow to the delicate undereye area. Whether you’ve spent a sunny day on the slopes or a long night on the town, no one will know but you.

How it Works

Your skin absorbs a bang-up batch of ingredients via the patch’s Transdermal Cosmetic Delivery system. Marine collagen mends connective tissue and prevents wrinkles, algae extract moisturizes, and Centella Asiatica reduces puffiness and eliminates dark circles. The patches are designed ergonomically to fit the cheekbone and undereye area.

How to Use

Apply one patch to each under-eye area. The patch’s unique design allows for other skin treatments to be used simultaneously. A package includes three regimens’ worth of patches.

Active Ingredients: 0.1% Hydrolyzed Extensin (Phyto Collagen), 0.3% Hydrocotyl (Centella Asiatica) Extract, 0.2% Algae Extract, Chitosan, 1% Mannan, 0.3% Betaine

Ingredients: Aqua/Purified Water, Aqua Collagen, Hydrolyzed Extensin (Phyto Collagen), Betaglucan, Hydrocotyl (Centella Asiatica) Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Algae Extract, Schizophyllum Commune, Pyrus Cydonia Extract, Certonia Siliqua Gum, Chitosan, Mannan, Betaine, Methyl Paraben, Propyl Paraben, FD&C Yellow 5 & Blue 1.

Instructions didn't say what side goes on the skin? One of them felt textured on one side; the other felt the same in both sides. They fell right out of the backing, and it seemed that the special goo was mostly stuck to the inside of the package.

This was a little like wearing snotty tissue on your face for half an hour.

Perfect product

These under eye patches really hydrated my under eye area. They were gentle and felt very cool on my face. Definitely buying more of these.

a Godsend...

I use an eye roller for those mornings after a long night. Tried the patches and there was such a difference. Refreshing and no dark circles.

I like this product but I don't think you will be able to see any noticeable difference from just one use.

Seems to work as described. Know it's a sample but don't get very much out of package. Don't know until you try.

Hard to tell

I don't really have bag under my eyes so its hard to tell how much of an impact this made on my skin, but it felt nice to remove them when I was done. Kinda relaxing to use.

Instant results, but temporary
Sampled

These seemed to work well, since my skin seemed tighter after taking them off. The next morning, I observe a little bit of difference from most mornings, but by that afternoon, I saw little difference.

Feels good, but I don't know how effective it is.
Sampled

I only had a sample of this product, so I can't say anything about long-term benefits. I can say that the sample felt really nice on my face, but I wish that they were multiple-use or that there were more treatments in a sample. For that matter, they seem over-priced for the three sets you get in the retail pack. If they were a bit less expensive I'd use these several times a week.

Seemed to make my eyes seem not as tired looking. Not a good sample size to really test it out.

I liked it!

When I received this in my box I was really excited to try it out. It's not a product that I'd usually purchase but I'm interested in. After using it I do plan to buy! I'm just starting to show signs of aging around my eye area and I often have issues with dry skin. When I used this product I noticed that my skin stayed moisturized for days after! I can't wait to purchase to see the results after using multiple times!
