LMdB: “Hello, this is Le Métier de Beauté emergency helpline. How can I help you?”
Me: “Hi, this is Sunny from Mostly Sunny. I’m making my morning coffee in the kitchen, but I have a problem…”
LMdB: “Go on.”
Me: “Last night, a girlfriend needed some S.O.S counselling, and you know how you can’t leave one of your own in the trenches? Long story short, before I knew it, it was 4AM.”
LMdB: “Oh uh. I think I know where this is going.”
Me: “Yeah, the girlfriend is fine, but I look like a total mess!”
LMdB: “Any specific complaints?”
Me: “My undereye area is puffy, lifeless, and practically purple! Is there anything you can do do help me look less like a zombie?”
LMdB: “The skin under the eyes is thinner and more fragile. Without proper care, it can easily become dehydrated. Don’t worry, I have just the thing for you! Have you heard of our new Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo?”
Me: “No. What does it do?”
LMdB: “Le Métier de Beauté Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo aims at restoring, reviving, and refreshing the skin around the eyes. It delivers intense hydration within 15 minutes, and this will reduce the look of wrinkles, dark circles, puffiness, and so on.”
Me: “Sounds like what I need!”
LMdB: “To award you for being such a loyal friend, I am going to teleport you one and walk you through the process.”
Me: “Sweet! Bring it on!
LMdB: “Now, see the front of the packaging? You should be able to lift it open from the bottom left corner.”
Me: “OK, what’s next?”
LMdB: “Pull out the little plastic tray, and you will see the Eye Mask Duo.”
LMdB: “Now, remove the patches and place them underneath your eyes.”
Me: “Wow, this texture is so interesting! It is very flexible and squishy. Also, there is a bit of liquid but the patches are not dripping wet. That’s cool. I don’t want to have the serum dripping down my face.”
LMdB: “The gel consistency is based on seaweed. As you put the patches on, you undereye area will instantly feel a cooling sensation and some relief. If you have the time, you can keep them in the fridge for 20 minutes prior to use.”
Me: “Wow, I think it’s waking me up a little! What’s next?”
LMdB: “Just wait for 15 minutes and knock your morning coffee down. Since the patches adhere well to your skin, there is no need to sit down or lie down. Carry on with your morning routine as usual, remove them after 15 minutes, and put some eye cream on to prolong the hydration. You can then put on some makeup if you wish. Call me back when you’re done.”
*Half an hour later*
Me: “This is Sunny again! Guess who is not looking like a zombie anymore? My undereye area is incredibly hydrated and smooth after I removed the patches, and the puffiness is gone! I just put my foundation on, and it was so easy because because my skin was well-prepped! I definitely look normal now thanks to Le Métier de Beauté Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo! Just for future reference, how much do these cost?”
LMdB: “That’s great to hear! Le Métier de Beauté Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo comes in a set of 8 and goes for 150 dollars.”
Me: “Wow, that’s kinda pricey, but I think it’s a great idea to have some around! You never know when you’re going to be called in for another S.O.S late-night counselling session, attend an amazing party, oh and I bet these are great for long-haul flights as well!”
LMdB: “Exactly! I’m glad I could help. Now, if your peeps in New York* want to check these out, send them to Romy Littman at the Le Métier de Beauté counter in Bergdorf Goodman. They can reach her at 212-872-8612 as well. Tell Romy Sunny at Mostly Sunny sent them. She will be extra nice!”
Me: “That’s cool! I hope more people will get to experience the emergency hydration Le Métier de Beauté Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo offers!”
Bottom line: Le Métier de Beauté Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo does what it promises to. As long as you have 15 minutes, it will visibly improve the look of the undereye area. While I wouldn’t suggest you replace your regular eye cream with the mask, it is excellent to have around for late nights, long-haul flights, or occasions on which you want to be the fairest of them all!
When was the last time you stayed up really late? What did you do? Have you tried anything (makeup or skincare) from Le Métier de Beauté? Do you use a separate eye mask?

* I chose to tag the Bergdorf Goodman counter in New York, because according to Google Analytics Mostly Sunny gets quite some love from the big apple! Haaai my NYC peeps! Go check these out because they will be SO useful next time you’re partied out/have to stay up to take care of a sick child/are going somewhere far far away!
PS: For those of us who don’t live in the US, Le Métier de Beauté is available on Zuneta. A little bird told me they should have these in stock pretty soon!
