ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask Review
For the sake of transparency, my first thoughts when I first opened the package were not all positive. I struggled to understand why a product like that was even necessary, it seemed like a waste. I was still curious to hate-try it, of course, so I gave the mask a proper test run. Spoiler alert: while my opinion didn’t do a sharp 180, I believe now that under certain circumstances, the new Elemis Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask could be quite beneficial. More on that below!
Elemis Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask ($82) is the new all-in-one treatment that promises to address a multitude of skin concerns in the immediate eye area: loss of firmness and elasticity, fine lines & wrinkles, dryness, dullness, dark circles, and puffiness. The formula boasts next-gen Hyaluronic Acid filler, Watermelon Snow Algae, Peacock’s Tail Algae, and a group of other marine botanicals. The mask comes in the form of a thick, bright yellow gel that feels surprisingly lightweight on the skin – by looking at it I expected the texture to be a lot richer, but it was airy and bouncy.
In my experience so far, Elemis Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask is not really a mask. Rather, it seems to perform like an eye cream, but one that doesn’t fully absorb and leaves the skin slightly tacky to touch. It creates a barrier that helps prevent moisture loss while nourishing and plumping the delicate skin underneath, making it appear firmer and more resilient.
The temporary results are immediate – my eye area feels instantly hydrated, soothed, and rejuvenated right after the application and the effect lingers on for many hours [although not quite the 24hrs promised by Elemis]. Long-lasting benefits are hard to predict for a product used to essentially treat the effects of fatigue and dehydration, considering there are no strong actives in the formula. However, from what I observed so far, if dehydration is your main concern, then you might benefit from this eye mask the most.
You will LOVE it if:
- Your routine is lacking an occlusive moisturizer for the eye area.
- You want to improve the look of lackluster skin caused by dehydration and fatigue.
- You avoid fragrance in skincare.
- You avoid parabens and artificial colorants in skincare.
- You support CF brands [parent company is not CF].
SKIP it if:
- You need a product with added SPF.
- You avoid products in jar packaging.
- You want your beauty products to have a pleasant fragrance.
- You are looking for strong anti-aging actives in your eye moisturizer.
- You are on a budget. This is more of a nice-to-have product rather than a must-have/HG.
- You are allergic or sensitive to any of the ingredients.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask will work best for those who want to improve the look of their undereye area from the effects of dehydration and stress. I think it can be easily used as an everyday eye cream, although I probably wouldn’t recommend wearing it under makeup because it tends to flake off when I layer it with any other products. Eye Revive Mask is not a miracle treatment, but it does offer pleasant relief which could be part of your self-care routine right now.
