Beauty vlogger Darshika Patel claims that by mixing baking soda with water to form a paste, you create a super effective gel that will zap bags away and reveal younger looking, more even skin.
The truth: Deputy digital editor Lauren said: While this is a very cheap and easy way to combat a skin problem that so many of us face day to day, I’m skeptical on just how effective it is! While the under eye area did feel softer after the treatment due to the exfoliating properties of the ingredients, I can’t say that the skin tone was very different… I would stick to the old spoon-in-the-fridge trick for reducing puffiness and perking up tired eyes, as although I suffered no irritation, baking soda might be a little harsh on sensitive skin.
