I have this really annoying habit which I know I need to work on. Despite the fact that I’m naturally a very early riser (I’m talking, *wakes up at 6:30 a.m. 365 days a year—even on the weekends* kind of early riser), I pretty much refuse to adjust my bedtime a few hours earlier to counteract the impact of my early bird identity. I love to stay up late after a long day and binge-watch my favorite shows on Hulu, I love to read 100-page chunks of a novel, and without fail, I also love to fool around on my phone doing who even knows what. You know that feeling when you look at the clock and it’s a perfectly respectable 10 p.m. and then the next time you blink it’s verging on 1 a.m.?! Well, it happens to me all the time, and while I know I’d be the better for shutting down my phone, burning a candle, switching on my diffuser, and being the well-behaved beauty and wellness editor I know I should be, I really struggle to do that. And, yes, it definitely shows up on my face the next day.
I have notoriously shady under-eyes just naturally, (check out our A-list celebrity guide to dark circles, here), but my lack of sleep and consequential coffee dependence the following morning has exacerbated the situation. Luckily, my job allows me access to the newest and coolest eye creams and treatments which tout all sorts of under-eye miracles—from the banishment of dark circles to the erasing of puff, fine lines, and wrinkles. Spoiler: most fall flat. As in, that literally did nothing, kind of flat. However, during my 3 years as a beauty editor, I’ve collected a glorified possession of creams and gels and balms that truly do work wonders on my dark circles. Regardless of whether your dark circles are sheerly caused by genetics, allergies, or not-so-stellar sleep habits (me), these shadow-targeting eye creams can lend a helping hand. Keep scrolling! I’m sharing the 15 best eye creams for dark circles I’ve tried since becoming a beauty editor.
