Beauty Test Lab: Does This Weird Mask Get Rid Of Puffy Eyes?

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to discern that the majority of us are sleep deprived. If the gallon-sized mugs of coffee and dazed expressions on our faces didn't give it away, then those suitcase-sized undereye bags will leave no doubt in passersby' eyes that we clearly did not get our beauty rest.
While we can only do so much about that insomnia, thankfully, there are a myriad of beauty treatments aimed at erasing the evidence of a sleepless night. The latest, Sephora's Instant Depuffing Eye Mask, is a blindfold-esque cloth mask infused with a hydrating complex that promises to make you look well-rested and get rid of those annoying dark circles.
We had executive assistant Isabel Cafaro put this funky-looking mask to the test to see if it could make her look bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. Watch the video now to see if this product passed, or if you should just stick to cutting up cucumbers and sticking them on your eyes.
Sephora Instant Depuffing Eye Mask, $6, available at Sephora.
