When these patches came out I was in absolute ecstasy, because this is an innovation in the world of dermo-cosmetic. I don’t think that many brands have patches or masks with mini micro needle functions.
I didn’t buy right after it came out but I decided to waited for a promotion, because working on a pharmacy I knew that was coming.
The Vichy Liftactiv Patches are made of 100% hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid and have the function of reducing the crow’s feet and eye wrinkles; rehydrate the eye contour is and because it is also composed by 160 micro-cones it also penetrates in the epiderm to an anti-aging effect.
The first thing that I noticed was that they are not dry patches. I’m not used to that, usually, the patches that I use are soaked in a serum.
When I took the first patch I noticed that the needles or ‘cones’ like they call them are not so little like I thought. In this point, I was a little worried because our eye area is sensitive.
- Apply these patches at night after remove all your makeup and cleaned the face.
- The instruction says to take the first patch from the plastic and apply along the eye area, being careful to not touch the lash line.
- Apply some pressure with the fingers (light pressure) to make sure it stays in the place and also to activate the cones to release the hyaluronic acid.
- Go to bed and enjoy a good full 8 hours of sleep.
Well, that was the theory now let’s talk about what really happens in real life.
First, it hurts, and no I didn’t make a huge pressure with my fingers. You are inserting needles in the eye area and sorry to say, but that hurts. Ok, it’s not something that you can’t endure but you feel it. This is not a comfortable pad to go to bed and have the dream of your life, because you are always feeling them on the eye area. After some adjustement, you stop feelling pain but you still feel discomfort.
Now the results… I’m 29 so I still don’t have profound wrinkles, but I have some riddles from expression and I my eye are is really dry. I didn’t saw a difference in the before and after, and that was a shock for me because I was expecting so much from these patches.
I´m going to ask you to help me, can you see in the pics any difference? The night I made these patches I had a service night so I was awake for more than 24 hours, so my under eyes were in the worst shape that I could be (like you can see in the photo).
I still didn’t give up from these patches. It can also be used in those lines that appear between the mouth and nose when you smile. I’m noticing that I have them more prominent so I want to try them there to see if I can see more results.
Are you still curious with the Vichy Liftactiv Micro Hyalu Patches? If your answer is yes, then you can buy it here and they will cost you $20.00.
Have you tried these patches? Can you see a difference in the pictures of the before/after?
