I’m not proud to admit that I’m one of those people who stays in bed until the last possible minute, but it’s true. And now that work-from-home life is the new normal, having my desk just across the room from my bed has proven very dangerous.

However, when I have an early Zoom meeting, there is one beauty product I turn to when I need a little help looking alert and, well, awake: these Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber De-Tox Hydra-Gel Eye Patches.

I have been using these Hydra-Gel Eye Patches for about two years now and I love them. They feel cool to the touch, quickly help to depuff my tired eyes and leave my under-eyes moisturized. While a container of 60 patches comes with a hefty $52 price tag, I see each pair as a few dollars well spent.

These eye patches aren’t just for show or fake relaxation either. I actually can see a difference right after I take them off. I texted a friend the first time I used them and we both agreed — these patches were really impressive.

Made with ingredients like cucumber extract, aloe and caffeine, these light green patches help to nourish, detox, hydrate and de-puff skin in as little as 10 minutes. While they are doused in cucumber goodness, you don’t have to worry about these patches sliding off your face or leaving behind a sticky residue.

I recommend keeping these patches in your fridge to get the gel extra cool if you want to take your wake up experience to the next level.

I’m also not the only fan of this beauty must-have. On Amazon, the product has earned 4.5 out of 5 stars with fans calling the patches “worth the money” and a “game-changer.”

You can snag these patches from Peter Thomas Roth, Ulta, Sephora or on Amazon.
