green tea bags are the most delicate and moisturizing for the skin. i steep a bag for about 5 minutes, drink the tea, and then apply the tea bag to my face. It's so easy and cheap not to try.

I was desperate to get rid of the puffiness of my eyes, I tried this using 2 green tea bags. I brewed 2 of them, put them in the freezer for 15-20 min and then layed down and rested them over my eyes for 10 min. When I took them off, I looked in the mirror and was like WHOA. My eyes were lifted and tight and my circles were diminished. I looked like I got a new set of eyes. Unfortunatley, this effect didn't last long, and I found myself back to square 1 in 30 mins. I have found out though, the next day my dark circles got lighter. So we'll see with more use, if they permanently lighten them. Another cool and weird puffy eyes treatment is soaking 2 cotton balls in whole milk. Works pretty good.

GREEN TEA BAGS = HOLY GRAIL FOR EYE PUFFINESS.
I make tea with 2 bags every morning, freeze the bags for about 15 minutes, and then leave them on my eyes for 10 minutes.
I have absolutely HORRIBLE puffiness and this just diminishes that so fricken well.
My eyes looks so wide and rested afterwards, and my horrible horrible eye bags are mostly diminished.

I see this for using tea bags as an eye treatment, but I used a tea bag to fix a nail that was tearing at the side. I am growing out my nails after years of biting them and they are growing great but I have had a few crack at the side. I was devastated when I had to clip my nails shorter because of this, but while I was searching for ways to prevent this from happening in the future I found some cool ways to fix a nail that was currently broken without clipping it. The most generic one was to use super glue. I tried that but the tear wasn't bit enough to lift and precisely glue, so it was glued down for a bit and then came loose.
The best and most unique suggestion I saw was to use tea bags and super glue to strengthen the nail. In this technique you super glue a piece of a tea bag paper (cut open with tea leaves discarded) over the ripped nail, allow it to dry and then file it smooth with a series of course to fine files. I have just done this myself and it has made the nail stronger in that section and while you can see the tear underneath the buffed tea bag/glue application you cannot lift up the torn nail. I am very happy to have found this technique.
I have only just applied the tea bag to my nail today and it looks cosmetically nice, but I will update on my experience with it over time. I do believe it will have to be replaced when I remove my nail polish and applied freshly, but you use such a little piece you can use the same tea bag over and over again for new pieces.
I used an old discarded lip liner brush to smooth the super glue and the tea bag on my nail. The demonstration I saw used a nail polish glue that came in a bottle and included a brush. The superglue and lip brush worked well for me, but I will probably invest in the nail polish glue at some point in the future.
Hope this is helpful and works for others!

Make yourself a cup of tea (regular black tea), take the bag out, squeeze the excess liquid, put it in the fridge/freezer to cool down. When it's ice cold, put it over/mainly your eyes for 5mins. I usually press gently as well, to get the caffeine in my skin.
De-puffs my under eye area like nothing else I've tried before! And I've got quite puffy eyes, especially under one eye (because I sleep on my side).
The effect lasts a good few days as well - if not a whole week!

I love it! My genetics are horrible when it comes to my under-eye area. I am 26 and have hideous eye bags. I have tried this treatment with black tea and green tea 2 times and my eyes feel great and look wonderful. I can't believe it..I've been using so many expensive products and its a $2 product that actually works!!! Just my luck. But I'm glad I found it now rather than later in life. Try it girls!

I was very sceptical about this actually working, but believe me it does.
My Eyes: Dark circles and bags which make me look bug eyed, sensitive and easily irritated eyes due to years of wearing contact lenses. Waking up in the morning my eyes are usually red, sore and watery. I can't even use pencil eyeliner to waterline anymore.
The Treatment: I tried this on three occasions, the first two failed. I first tried it by placing two tea bags in a little bit of almost boiling water straight from the kettle. I let it cool for a minute, then placed the tea bags on my eyelids. The bags were really hot and I loved it, it felt soothing, especially as I was up at 3AM for my shift that day. Anyway left it on about 5 minutes, saw NO DIFFERENCE. Actuallly my eyes were more sore if anything.
2nd attempt - I used lukewarm water. I insisted that the water be of a warm-hot temperature because I thought it would help the caffeine absorb better. Warm water? NO DIFFERENCE.
THIRD ATTEMPT: ICE COLD WATER. It worked! I had some cheap tea bags probably low in caffeine content, dunked them in freezing water for a couple minutes, saw the water go slightly brown in tone. Then I lay back placed each tea bag over closed eyelids and after about 5 I started feeling a tingly sensation, almost slightly uncomfortable. I was worried my eyes were getting irritated, but nope, I looked in the mirror and my eyes were bright and wide awake, no redness or watery-ness, and the bags were unnoticeable. I just looked so fresh and alive. YAY.
I urge all those with sore/irritated eyes to try it. You don't need special tea, and try it with both hot and cold water to see what works for you. And make sure you leave it on for a minimum of 5 minutes, longer if possible.

How funny to find this here! These are the ONLY thing that help my eye bags...or actually they are more like "pouches". And I've tried more products, both department store and OTC, than you can imagine. The older I get, and the thinner my under-eye skin is, my undereye area becomes more and more sensitive to too much salt, certain meds, lack of sleep, crying, etc. Also - just plain bad genetics. What I do, and I don't know if this is good for my skin in the long run but it works: I soak two black tea bags in ice water for a few minutes and then hold them under my eyes as long as possible. Often I put them back in the ice water to get cold again. Messy, yes, but it is the only thing that makes a difference, and a big difference at that. So until I can afford undereye surgery this is it!

I like bag tea. Tea bags I alwyas use as a mask during the facials and eyes treatment in my medspa. It reduce redness, inflomation, dark cirkle under eyes, and good protection from sundamage, good base under eye serum and moisturiser. Recommend use tea bag and it is natural but also is not expencive.

Definitely a big fan of the natural remedies. Helps a lot with the swollen eyes. Also a big fan of peptides and caffeine used under the eyes to reduce swelling.

I first discovered using tea bags when I was in primary school! I cried so much the night before and I didn't want to go to school with red puffy eyes and so my sister introduced me to tea bags. She got that tip from a magazine. It worked like magic, calmed my redness and got rid of the puffiness.
I still use it when I need to, the bad part is that it can get messy such as stains on pillows :(

I just did this around 20 minutes ago. I used green tea bags, made a cup and then put them in the fridge for a few hours. I kept them on my face for ten minutes. Now I have huge red blotches all around my eyes. I know it is from the tea because the blotches are shaped exactly like the bags I used. I do not normally have sensitive skin. Too bad I can not give this zero lippies. I am so surprised that this works for EVERYONE else-- I have never seen that before. At least it does not hurt. :[

After reading all the tea bag stories, I got inspired and tried a new way to use tea as an eye treatment. I mixed some aloe gel with some instant, unsweetened ice tea mix, and put it in the fridge overnight. In the morning, I globbed it below both eyes, over my circles and puffy area, and wore it while I made breakfast. It looked scary! It reduced my puffiness enough that I noticed and so did my boyfriend. It's didn't make it go away, but it made me look and feel more awake.
Last night I rubbed some on my inner arm and washed it off this morning to make sure it wouldn't stain, before I used it on my face. It didn't stain my skin at all, but I don't know if it would stain anyone else's skin.
The recipe I used: About 1/2 teaspoon aloe and 1 teaspoon instant tea. I think even more tea would mix in pretty easily.

As everyone else noted, this is just an amazing treatment for puffiness. I cried all night last night and woke up to FRIGHTENING looking swollen eyes... I kept applying eye creams and treatments and nothing was helping. Then I soaked some tea bags in water for about 10 minutes, threw them in the fridge for a bit and let them sit on my eyes for maybe 15-20 minutes. My husband said my eyes looked like normal after, and that is just a miracle- I should have taken before and after pics! :)

This is the most epically successful home remedy I have ever used. I always have puffy eyes with dark circles and using tea bags on them reduces them dramatically. I take two caffeinated tea bags (they need to be caffeinated or it won't work) and boil them in water. Then I let them cool off for a few minutes because the cold will also help reduce puffiness. I lay down on my bed and put the tea bags on my eyes for about half an hour, during this time I usually listen to some music stand up comedy. I should be more often than I do, but seriously I don't think any product on the shelf can step to what tea bags can do. What other product makes you look beautiful AND produces a delicious beverage?

Often on my grocery list a perfec eye remedy when your tired, need extra eye attention. Stuff any eye product, well I do - so may failed and expensive treatments. This is one of the few that I can say work. soak in hot water, let cool and place in fridge in a sealed container. Use that night or in a day or two so you get the most out of the chamomile thats infused. Summer is brilliant and winter too. Tames tears.

The most inexpensive product makes the most difference,
after crying, my eyes get noticeably puffy the tea bags brings them down to normal , just got to put them on for longer then usual...and to tone down that puffyness , soak the bags in very warm water...it works waay better then soaking them in cold water
this makes alot of difference then any other thing u can buy at a store.

I just take plain old tea bags, wet them, and apply them over my eyes as I take a nap and the caffeine shrinks the puffs better than any depuffing gel I've ever bought (including the Origins $60 one). If I don't want to lay down and close my eyes, I just swipe coffee or tea around my eyes.
