5 New Under-Eye Circle Products We’re LovingMarch 29, 2019
Whether you inherited them from your mom or experienced a few too many sleepless nights, under-eye circles can be a pain to cover. All under-eye circles aren’t created equal either: some are dark, some are puffy and some are a mixture of the two. Luckily, a mix of good skin care, cold spoons and a great concealer can help to diminish the look of under-eye circles while also keeping that delicate skin hydrated. We’ve rounded up our favorite products for the job ahead — from the brush you’ll want in every bag to the retinol-infused eye cream already racking up five-star reviews.
If you want to smooth and brighten your under eye area, try the Kiehl’s Youth Dose Eye Treatment, a lightweight formula packed with retinol derivative pro-retinol, vitamin C and grape seed extract. It reduces the look of dark circles over time while also diminishing the look of fine lines and puffiness — a game changer for your skin-care routine.
Although this has been a fan-favorite for a while, IT Cosmetics recently expanded the shade range for its Bye Bye Under Eye Full Coverage Anti-Aging Waterproof Concealer, so it’s definitely worth a mention. Now available in a versatile 48 shades, this concealer is infused with anti-aging peptides, vitamins, hydrolyzed collagen and hyaluronic acid. The formula is designed to improve the appearance of wrinkles while also concealing, making this the ideal multi-tasker for your makeup bag.
As much as we love a good under-eye product, we can’t ignore the siren call of a fun beauty tool. Cue the IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin 2-in-1 Tap & Smooth Eye Cream Brush #706, a dual-ended brush made to help apply eye creams. The brush end features ultra-soft Heavenly hair bristles while the other is a handcrafted aventurine stone that’s cooling and soothing.
Calling all gel-lovers: the Sephora Collection Brightening Eye Cream is here to hydrate and help visibly depuff your under-eye bags. Formulated with caffeine, hyaluronic acid and Mudar plant bark extract, this gel-textured eye cream offers hydration while diminishing the look of dark circles, too.
If you want something jam-packed with good-for-skin ingredients, try First Aid Beauty Fab Skin Lab Retinol Eye Cream with Hyaluronic Acid, which contains microencapsulated retinol that releases over time. This makes it a gentler retinol option to use on the delicate under-eye area, while the hyaluronic acid in it helps smooths plumps and hydrates.
