When it comes to our beauty routine, there are few things that frustrate us more than when the skin around our eyes looks as if we haven’t slept in weeks. There are several potential causes of dark and puffy circles ranging from lifestyle to genetics, and while no product can alter your genes, there are some on the market that can make your eyes look brighter. If you’re a coffee lover, you’re probably familiar with that wide-awake feeling that caffeine can bring, but did you know it can have a similar effect on your skin? We love these eye creams to help the skin around our eyes look bright and rested even after an all-nighter.
VERSED The Fix Emergency Eye Mask
VERSED is our favorite brand for luxury-quality, clean skincare at a drugstore price point. Their Emergency Eye Mask contains cucumber to soothe and caffeine to brighten. It makes a noticeable difference in about 10 minutes, but can also be used overnight for extra hydration.
Mario Badescu Caffeine Eye Cream
We love this eye cream because it works well with all skin types and is vegan and cruelty-free. It’s super lightweight and glides on smoothly, yet packs a serious punch when it comes to leaving our eyes looking fresh and bright.
100% Pure Coffee Bean Eye Cream
This eye cream is our favorite for lightening dark circles, especially after we’ve had a rough night’s sleep. It also contains green tea and vitamins formulated to help prevent aging around the eye area.
