Reusable under eye patches that you can use again and again and again

Now that's an investment!

Beauty Crew Beauty Editor / January 31 2024

In this economy, we love any skin care product that can be purchased once and used over and over again. 

Enter: reusable under eye patches, the economical and sustainable answer to traditional, single-use, under eye patches.

This genius invention takes the concept of under eye product infusion and really runs with it.

Simply apply a serum, eye cream or treatment under your eyes and slap on a set of reusable eye patches to seal it all in and enhance absorption.

We recommend popping them on in the morning as a part of your AM skin care routine. Just pour yourself a cup of coffee, and leave them to work on those dark circles and puffy under eyes for 10 minutes before you head out the door, fresh-faced.

Salt By Hendrix Eye Babe Under Eye Masks Blue
from $29.95 at Adore Beauty

These reusable under eye patches from Salt By Hendrix are slightly larger than the original Eye Babe Under Eye Masks, which means you can target dark circles and hyperpigmentation under the eyes more effectively. As with their previous reusable eye patches, the brand recommends applying a small amount of product and to refrain from putting them in the fridge to ensure the masks adhere correctly to the skin. They also recommend cleansing your patches with a gentle soap and warm water after use, patting them dry and lying them shiny side up to dry before putting them back in their storage tin. 

Key features:

100 per cent silicone
Larger than traditional eye patches
Wash with gentle soap and warm water
Comes with a storage tin

Omnilux Mini Eye Brightener
from $145 at Skin Mart

Unlike the other reusable eye patches on this list, the Omnilux Mini Eye Brightener utilises LED technology to brighten the under eyes, minimise the appearance of fine lines and depuff eye bags. The eye patch boasts red and near-infrared light, which emit a wavelength that causes changes to the skin on a cellular level. Red light helps to reduce inflammation, pigmentation, and redness, boosts cellular repair and improves circulation. Infrared light enhances collagen and elastin production for plump, firm skin. The LED eye mask comes with 14 hydrocolloid patches that help the mask adhere to the skin and are infused with firming peptides and hydrating niacinamide.

How do you clean reusable under eye patches?

If you're using 100 per cent silicone eye patches they can be cleaned using a gentle soap formula and warm water. After washing they'll need to be pat dry and stored in an airtight, dry storage container or tin. If you're using an LED under eye mask they can be cleaned using a disinfectant wipe, disinfectant spray or cleaning alcohol. As they're electronic it's important they are not cleaned with or submerged in water.
