Review: Eye Candy Coolers. De-stressing your Eyes!

As a mom of 2 small kids under 5, I don’t get to treat myself to the spa because of the cost. The next best thing is facials, aromatherapy, and eye candy coolers.

They ended up sending me 2 packs of their soothing eye candy coolers- I chose Chillin’ Cucumber (Green) and Tart ‘n Tangy Tangerine (Orange/Yellow). They are amazing. You just pop them in the freezer, refrigerator, or a glass of cold ice water.

I put mine in the top door of my refrigerator as soon as they came in the mail, because I wanted to use them the same night. I got out my face mask, put it on, turned on some soothing music, and put the eye coolers on.

I love that they work to reduce puffiness and fine lines, help to minimize dark circles, stress and tension headaches, and allergy symptoms. I have dark circles and puffiness around my eyes and frequently get stress headaches- so I was more than ready to use them!

The Green Eye Candy coolers are made to resemble the real deal of cucumber eye covers. I love the cool cucumber look! I have done the cucumber on the eyes to reduce swelling and dark circles, but the slimy seedy mess that’s left behind is gross.

Now I can sit back for 10 minutes and relax with the eye candy coolers, put them back in their zippered clear case, and back in the refrigerator. I don’t have to go to the grocery, buy the cucumber, and wash and cut it- and then deal with clean-up. This is TONS better.

The coolness of these little amazing pillow like eye covers help me escape from the tornados that I call my children. My overworked/stressed/black circled eyes were very grateful for these eye covers!

I’ve been using these once a week during my “me” at home spa time, and I’ve noticed that my stress/sinus headaches have gotten less aggressive.

Can you say amazing stocking stuffer or Christmas gift? They come in 4 colors: Sugared Ice Blue, Tart ‘n Tangy Tangerine, Classic Chillin’ Cucumber and Cotton Candy Pink. You can even buy all 4 in a gift pack.. so you can have them for a girls’ night IN.

Life as a mom doesn’t seem so hectic during that short time that you’re relaxing and thinking of floating in a sailboat somewhere in Hawaii. Winking smile 

If you live a hectic life- you know- where you wake up late, have to rush to get the kids to school, only to get there and realize that only one of them have their backpack. SO you have to go back home, retrieve the backpack, bring it back to school. THEN you have to go home, check your email, only to realize that you have a deadline due for work at the end of the day that was completely overlooked and somehow you haven’t even BEGUN to type it up! YEA- one of THOSE lives!

I’m not promising that this is AS great as escaping to a luxurious hotel, where you get your own massage table brought to your room, a mini fridge filled with cake, and a mini-bar.. but as a mom- it’s closer than I’ll ever be.
