These Gel Eye Patches Are Not Just Eye Candy — They Made Me an Eye Care Convert

What happens when a beauty guru is lured into her first eye product by some gorgeous packaging? When it’s JayJun Roselle Tea Eye Patch, apparently a very good morning.


I have a confession to make.


Besides how to balance oily skin, one of the most frequent questions I get asked is what eye cream or eye product do I recommend. And … I never had an answer for that because, up until this point, I never had one to recommend. Yes. I admit it. I didn’t use an eye cream or any sort of eye product. I just didn’t see the point, honestly. I’d just gently tap my regular ol’ moisturizer around my eyes and call it a day (or night), BUT THEN.




I saw the JayJun Roselle Tea  Eye Patch on one of my favorite sites and was instantly intrigued. Honestly, it was the packaging because they LOOK gorgeous and roselle tea just screams fancy b-tch, and who doesn’t want to feel that way? So I bought them.

And then I tried them.


And I can now officially say that I am an eye product convert.


Let’s break it down.


The JayJun Roselle Tea Eye Patch are made by (you guessed it) JayJun, the luxury skincare and sheet mask maker extraordinaire, so you already know these eye patches aren’t gonna be on some regular smegular sh-t. They come packaged in a pink tub with a gorgeous botanical garden floral motif. And then you open the package and WHEWWWW you’re in for a treat.

Inside are 60 patches (so 30 uses). They are a gorgeous pink shade (hello Millennial Pink) and are flecked with tea leaves. Like honestly, just opening up and looking at them is kind of an experience in itself. They are definitely fancy and a bit boujee, which is right up my alley. They have a light floral scent, but once you put them on, it doesn’t linger. They’re made from a lightweight gel that feels both cooling and refreshing on the skin.


So I’ve talked about all these minor details and I’m sure you’re like OK, what is the big deal? What do they DO, Sheryll?!


They hydrate. They brighten. They help firm the under-eye area. They are basically like little shots of love that you put under your eyes to help them look like you’ve actually slept. Thanks to ingredients like hibiscus (aka roselle) extract, which calms, firms, and evens out skin tone; hyaluronic acid for hydration; and niacinamide for brightening, you can actually look like you’ve slept your eight hours! (Because I know a lot of us are not getting enough sleep, cough cough.)

I wake up every morning between 5 and 6 am, and my eyes are always ridiculously puffy. This wouldn’t normally be an issue, but I’m on camera teaching kids English, and sometimes, it looks like I haven’t slept at all because my eyes just look so tired and sad. So I’ve started to incorporate the eye patches into my morning routine. I wash my face, apply my toner, and then put the patches on while I do my hair and make coffee or whatever other morning shenanigans I have to do. After about 15 minutes, I remove them, tap in the remaining essence, and move on to the next steps of my routine. It’s not sticky at all, and the eye area feels really well hydrated, without all the extra greasiness or heaviness. And I gotta say, I think they might have made a bit of difference. My eyes do look more awake and refreshed, and they definitely aren’t as puffy as they have been. Imma fan!


And the best part about these patches is that THEY DON’T SLIDE AROUND YOUR FACE. I have tried gel eye patches in the past, and I just gave up on them because they end up on your chin and then you try to get it back around your eye and they just rip in half and yeah … I don’t have the time. But once these are on (and you aren’t like … smiling over and over again and running around like a crazy person), they stay put. You can also use them in other places that need a little bit of TLC, like on your chin or cheeks. We love a multitasker, OK!

I already love the eye cream that comes with the JayJun multistep masks, so I know I'm gonna buy these eventually.

They're just so GORGEOUS. I want to put on a maribou dressing gown when I use them and drape myself dramatically over a chase lounge while I watch my newest story.

I love these! Both the green tea and the roselle ones are so nice and they make me feel so luxurious when I use them! My fav way to use them is to put a little bit of oil underneath, slap them on, put a sheet mask over and use my rose quartz roller.
These are by far my fav eye patches but I also like the Heimish rose eye patches for when I need something quicker and lighter. Plus I like that if you want you can dissolve the Heimish ones into a rose essence.

Ooo so fancy! I want a rose quartz roller!!! Your masking game is so *extra* I love it. #sheetmaskgoals!

Do you feel like the roller makes a difference in your skin?

Haha I know! I'm that person on instagram with the 10 plus step routine where people are like girl, what the hell is wrong with you!

So jury is still out on the roller. I honestly love my ice roller (best 12 dollars I've spent on amazon and so good in fact, I now have two) more because it helps depuff and really helps me when I have headaches. The rose quartz one feels good but results wise it is kind of meh.

Good to know and kind of a relief tbh. I'm actually trying to decrease steps in my routine! (Though a rose quartz roller is suchhhhh Insta-bait!)

I mean other people swear by it but I honestly don't see a huge a visible difference in the way my skin looks when I use the rose quartz roller. On the other hand, I see visible results from my ice roller so i find myself reaching for it more often. That being said, nothing makes me feel as luxurious as using the rose quartz roller. So basically I could go either way but it does make me glad I didn't spring for a super expensive roller.

I love these because they're soooo pretty. But I feel like the green tea ones will be better for me. Why must JayJun make me make the impossible choice???? 😂
