I didn't approach this product with high hopes, but I was feeling especially puffy the other day so I decided to take a chance on these little babies. Opened the package and the mesh pads had slid off their plastic backing. This was inconvenient (I had to cut open the package to get them out), so 1/2 a star deducted. I placed them on my puffies and settled on the couch for the next 20 minutes. Had to sit still and not talk too much because they kept sliding down my face, so another 1/2 star deducted. Left them on for 20-25 minutes, peeled them off my face and patted the remaining gel into my skin using my ring finger.
Apart from these minor inconveniences, I'd say the product is pretty great. It visibly de-puffed my undereye area - to the point where my slightly oblivious to detail husband said I looked like I just took a vacation. My skin felt smooth and moisturized and, if I'm not mistaken, my pores looked smaller! Gasp!
The cost is a bit prohibitive, so I don't think I'll be using these weekly, but it's definitely a worthy splurge for a special occasion or photo-op.
