DIY Cucumber Eye Pads & Award

Hello girls !
Today i thought i would share with you a recent DIY task i discovered via Michelle Phan's Youtube Channel which i thought would be a fantastic idea to try out! So stay tuned to see how its done...

DIY Cucumber Eye Pads

You will need : 
A cucumber 
Cotton Wool oval pads
A freezer bag or a lunch box .

Directions :

To begin with get your cucumber cut it up into small slices and gradually blend it all in the mixer till it turns quite thick. Then add an equal part of water and blend again. You will notice the 'juice' will have bits of cucumber in if you want you can choose to drain them out like Michelle Phan did and if not keep them like i did. (its up to you) .

Get your storage ready , if its the freezer bag with a ziplock on then great or if like me you are using a lunch box , i drew out on a piece of non stick cooking paper the outline of my box and then placed it in the bottom for neatness and so it doesnt stick together. 

Then get your cotton wool pads and one by one dip them in the cucumber juice and then squeeze them to get rid of excess juice and place them in your storage container. When placing them in try not make the cotton wool ads overlap and separate each layer with cling film like i did.   

Do as many as you can and then place them in the freezer to keep them fresh. Whenever you want to use one all you do is take as many as you need out and then leave them for about 10 minutes to defrost and place them on your eyes for another 10 minutes. 
The results will stun you , they make your eyes wake up and almost give them a healthier glow . These pads will also help combat dark circles and help cool down any eye bags.
