This week I tested out a product I received inside of a Glossy Box which I received inside of a StyleCon Starlet Bag. The product is called Kristals Diamond Select Anti-Gravity Spark Eye Mask by Kristals Cosmetics. I have not heard of this cosmetics brand before so I was not sure what to expect. First of all, I’ve never tested an eye mask before so this is my first time trying this type of product. Also, I did not receive this product for free, nor are there any affiliate links in this post. Now that we’ve got that out of the way let’s get down to it.
What piqued my interest about this particular product is that according to Kristals Cosmetics this gel eye mask is special because it contains pure diamonds:
Skin virtually defies gravity when enhanced with the power of pure diamond as it lifts and firms while brightening and hydrating, building a cushion of density into time-thinned skin that helps erase the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Pure diamond powder also sloughs off old cells, making skin luminous by enabling youthful skin within to appear, reducing the appearance of sun damage.
According to the company’s website this product claims to:
- Restore vibrancy and moisture to the eye area
- Dramatically reduce the wrinkles in the eye area
- Brighten and minimize dark circles
- Plump the skin with hydration and refine texture for softer, smoother, healthier looking skin
- Use diamond powder to work in harmony with collagen; the combo makes collagen contract and firm to reduce skin sagging and wrinkles
- Maintain hydration for 24 hours with the mixture of Lavender and Chamomile which penetrates and seals in ingredients’ essence
This particular kit packet came with 2 sets of gel eye masks. Pictured below is one of the sets of gel eye masks that I ended up using. They come in a sealed airtight foil pack so they are tamper proof.
As the instructions had said I thoroughly washed my face (it was after a shower, no makeup or any other skincare products or filters!)
I kept the mask on for a solid 15 minutes (timed it!) During:
After 15 minutes, took off the gel eye masks and gently patted in remaining emulsion as instructed according to the box. Here are the results (no filter!):
I’m not sure if you’re able to tell in the photo to what degree the masks affected the eye area. I did notice the under eye area was very well-moisturized. I can definitely say it brightened the under eye area and got rid of the dark circles that were there. I did feel it plumped the texture of the skin in that area thus reducing lines under the eyes (which I have very minimal of to begin with.) I can’t speak for the sagging skin claim as I do not yet have sagging under eye skin. I do feel this product does what it claims to do. I just feel it is on the pricier side for an under eye gel mask. However, I do feel it lives up to its claims. What I thought was interesting about this product is its pricing. On their company website you can by a 12 pack for $399.95. That’s right, no typo, three hundred ninety-nine USDs and ninety-five cents so $33 something USDs a set.
