When You Need to Wake Up Those Tired Eyes

I went out for what was supposed to be a martini Friday night with some friends. Of course, it's never just a martini with us. Before I knew it, I'm in a completely different part of town listening to 80's tunes in clubs I had never even heard of, much less been to. Needless to say, I rolled back home around 3:30 AM and was promptly woken up around 8 AM to make french toast. Really, you would think that I'm far too old for such craziness, but a good time was had by all.

Unfortunately, after a night of such fun, one looks a bit frightful in the morning. It was so much easier when I was in my 20s to pull myself together in the morning (smokey eyes look even better the next day!) these days I find myself looking for that something that will get me back to normal. Luckily, I had Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Eye Mask on hand.

Even if you don't stay up half the night watching people far younger than you try and dance to Holiday by Madonna, you need this eye mask. It is that fantastic. Here is how it works: you "pop" the liquid part of the package so that it seeps into the area where the pads are. This takes about two minutes, maybe three. Make sure your face is freshly cleansed, and open up the package and remove the pads. Lay one pad on each eye, lay down on your bed, and doze for 15 minutes. Towards the end of your 15 minutes, you will feel something going on in your eye area, and when you take it off, your eyes will look absolutely amazing. The difference was literally quite shocking. Pat your eyes dry if they need it (gently!), apply some excellent eye cream, and you are all set.

I was lucky enough to have been gifted this product from a Bliss employee (love!), but you can find Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Eye Mask at Bliss online, Sephora, and Beauty.com. It retails for about $54 for four eye masks. Trust me, like most Bliss products, it is worth every penny.
