Editor’s Pick: the insiders’ must-haves



Acting beauty editor


No wonder eye masks are booming - infused with ultra-cooling, skin-plumping, dark-circle-banishing ingredients, they leave eyes looking bright and beautiful. We put four of the best to the test

Skyn Iceland Hydra Cool Eye Gels, £25: “I love that these patches sit perfectly in place – no sliding down my face. They’re super cooling, which felt so good on tired eyes. My late-night bags almost disappeared in just 15 minutes.” Chloe, stylist, top left

Filorga Optim-Eyes Patches, £40: “Once you get past the fact that they look a bit like slugs, these really work. I had puffy eyes from hayfever but, 15 minutes later, these gel patches made me look revived, rather than tired and sinusy.” Colleen, senior sub editor, top right

PIXI DetoxifEye Eye Patches, £22: “I’m going to pack these for my upcoming long-haul flight – they’re the perfect way to make sure I leave the plane looking bright-eyed and refreshed. They also make a great skincare selfie shot!” Aleesha, art buyer, bottom left

Murad Eye Lift Treatment, £55, available in store: “The tingling sensation made me feel like these patches were really working on firming my undereye – and they were. They also made me look less tired and ironed out some of my laughter lines.” Ian, menswear editor, bottom right
