Benefit 'Puff Off' Instant Eye Gel

Tuesday, January 27, 2015


I don't suffer with under eye darkness or bags very often, but every now and again I'll wake up looking like I've been hit by a bus. I don't know how or why, and despite the fact I've had a restful eight hours of snooze time my face seems to say otherwise. When this happens I usually go for the old 'cold teaspoons pressed against the eyes' trick (and say a silent prayer thanking whoever invented makeup) but luckily now I have a much more glamourous way to get rid of eye puffiness. Meet Benefit's 'Puff Off' an instant eye gel developed to cool, hydrate, de-puff under the eyes and iron out fine lines and wrinkles. Pretty much everything you'd want in an eye cream rolled into one!

While a number of Benefit's cosmetic products are some of my all time favourites I've never tried any of their skincare up until this point, I don't know why as I've heard great things about their various skincare bits. In true Benefit style the name and packaging is as cute and quirky as ever, with the little iron tip not only being a bit of a novelty ('ironing' out fine lines- love it) but is also really functional too. It's the perfect shape for getting right under the eyes, and with it being metal it cools the skin on contact which helps to bring down all of that awful puffiness. The pearlescent pink gel has a brightening effect to it which makes the eye area look more luminous and awake, I guess it's almost a cosmetic/skincare hybrid. Puff Off can even be used over makeup, and so if you're the kind of person who works long hours (or finds their under eyes look dry and drab as the day wears on) this would be a little saviour product to keep in your handbag.

I can't comment on how this works on fine lines and wrinkles, but the hydrating formula should act as a great preventative measure for keeping the crinklies away. It's a fantastic eye de-puffer and the fact that it also has a luminising finish is a bonus- my first impressions are all completely positive. A very welcomed addition to my skincare routine, and should be a good one for the days when I wake up looking like I've done about ten rounds with Mike Tyson.

What do you think of Benefit's new release? Is Puff Off something you'd buy?

  1. I’m not sure if this is something I would buy. It seems a little gimmicky and I don’t use eye cream all that often. Definitely need to invest in the new roller lash though when it is released!

  5. I don't really have puffy eye problems (dark circles, though, on the other hand...*sighs*), but I love the iron applicator! It is just so cute, lol. Benefit is one of my absolute favorite makeup brands; they are high-quality yet also come in super cute packages.
