Chronicles of Benefit Puff Off Instant Eye Gel

It was during a game of Werewolf that I had been in deep conversation about eye creams, eyebag prevention and covering eye imperfections when needed. As I near the age of 30, I kind of feel like I'm close to approaching that day that metabolism and recovery is going to be so slow, but hey, nothing worthy doesn't come without work. While I'm all for early prevention {I started eye cream at 21}, sometimes, there are unforeseen circumstances and we just need stop gap solutions for these.

Benefit's Puff Off Instant Eye Gel seeks to resolve undereye puffies caused by lack of sleep, crying at night {lol #drama}, too much salt intake, wrong position in sleeping, with the help of the iron design, which gives a satiny finish to the eye area. The consistency is a mix of cream and gel.

What I Love:

  • Product is of good size, no too big sizes given it's just used for the undereye area.

  • I waited a long time to make sure I use this on a puffy day and so here it is: works like a charm!

  • It feels more like a primer than an eyecream, which temporarily cools the eye area and fills the lines. It doesn't do anything for long term effects, which it doesn't promise anyway.

  • The packaging is a cutie pie --- as expected from a beauty innovator like Benefit Cosmetics.

  • A tube costs PHP 1,500 -- some might find this a wee bit expensive for a 10-ml tube :)

  • Benefit Puff Off is available at all Benefit stores nationwide: Trinoma, Greenbelt 5, Alabang Town Center, SM Mall of Asia.

This is how I used it.

This is how it looks on me. Lessened the puffiness, too!

Happy Wednesday!
