Benefit Puff Off Instant Eye Gel ($29) is a new permanent product that was launched for Spring 2015! I’m quite fond of Benefit’s products so I was eager to give this bad boy a try. I don’t normally use eye creams/gels, but there was something peculiar about the iron shaped tip of this tube that made me even more curious as to how it worked!
According to Benefit Cosmetics website:
Iron on…puff off! Puffies & creases look “satiny smooth” with our innovative undereye gel. The custom “ironing” tip instantly helps smooth the look of undereye puffies & fine lines. Iron away for a smoother day! Puff Off! works on bare skin or over makeup. When applying on top of makeup, gently pat with fingertips to blend.
Behold! . . . Puff off instant eye gel!
This is the ironing tip when first taking off the top
This is the product coming from the ironing tip after slightly pressing on the tube.
The packaging is definitely unique and cute. I like the whole ‘ironing’ out the puffiness idea. That’s cute! The iron is nice, flat and smooth, plus it’s cool to the touch.
It does not have any strong significant smell. I’d like to think of this product as being odorless.
The consistency is very light and non greasy.
I’ve worn the Puff Off Instant Eye Gel underneath my concealer, and I loved it! not only did it remedy my puffy eyes, but it also played as a great base for my concealer, seeing how it prevented it from creasing. There was a slight cooling sensation, but it subsided within a few minutes. It actually felt really refreshing! You know what this product reminds me of? You guys remember the old cold spoon method? This was a method people used back in the days; people used to leave a spoon in the fridge and place it underneath their eyes. I would even leave this bad boy in the fridge for like 5-7 minutes before using, just for that super cooling effect! I wouldn’t be suprised if it had caffeine extract for the puffiness.
