Rebecca O'Connell, BuzzFeed

You may not want a snail to slide all over your face, but snail extract is great for combating pigmentation aka dark circles.

See my full review (#3).

Promising review: "These have made their way into my daily routine. They leave my eyes looking bright, hydrated, and give them a glow. They're also safe for sensitive skin, I haven't had any breakouts or clogged pores. They stay up really well too without getting dry too quickly lasting usually 30-60 minutes. Love them and their other products!" —MsCake

Get 60 patches from Amazon for $11.28.

2. An eye roller with vitamin C, mint, and caffeine to give your eyes a wake-up call.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I have used this product for years. I have puffy under-eyes and this product really helps that area. I won't lie and say they totally go away but they shrink by at least 30% or more. It's worth the price to try it. It has caffeine in it so I think that helps to diminish the puffiness." —Susie O

Get it from Amazon for $8.07, Walmart for $8.49, or Jet for $9.94.

3. A dark circle eraser infused with goji berry and haloxyl to smooth and erase blemishes and dark circles.

amazon.com, amazon.com

This beloved tool has almost 2,500 five-star reviews. It comes with a sponge applicator, so your beauty routine can feel like an art project. Lots of reviewers mentioned using it to cover scars.

Promising review: "Love this concealer!! It covers the dark circles so well, and with minimal creasing. Set your under eyes with a setting powder immediately after applying and you have coverage all day that won't budge or crease! I have tons of high end concealers but I always grab for this one and I recommend it to all my friends." —Angela

Get it from Amazon for $6.74 (available in 10 shades), Walmart for $7.94 (available in 12 shades), or Jet for $7.94 (available in 17 shades).

4. A vibrating eye massager to reduce puffiness and help serums and eye cream absorb more easily.

instagram.com

Promising review: "I was in the Bayshore Sephora in Ottawa, and was beyond frustrated about my puffy eyes that have plagued me forever, and more so since I became quite ill. I tried this little sweetheart and absolutely love it. I see a 75-85% decrease in the puffiness under my eyes. I wholeheartedly recommend it!" —dotuov

Get it from Sephora for $139 (available in three colors).

5. A color corrector with green, purple, yellow, and salmon to camouflage any discoloration you want.

amazon.com, amazon.com

It's vegan and cruelty free!

Promising review: "I actually love this concealer!! I wasn't expecting to like it so much, and now it's my go to concealer. The colors are really pigmented, and they apply easily. What I like is that I can build the coverage if I need to. I don't have massive under eye circles, but I do have some discoloration, so anything that helps even out the tone is greatly appreciated. I like that I don't have to use a large amount to get good coverage, I usually just dab my fingers maybe twice and it's enough to give me coverage without it looking cakey." —Sipeish

Get it from Amazon for $9.97.

6. An avocado eye treatment from Kiehl's with beta-carotene and shea butter to rewind time back to before you decided to pull an all-nighter.

kiehls.com

Promising review: "A non-greasy, moisturizing formula for everyone! I love how it its texture is so creamy, which immediately feels like 'burst of moisture' as you put it on. It's difficult to describe with words, but it literally feels like you are putting on concentrated water. Doesn't not smudge my gel eye liner. Highly recommend it!" —Kiehl's customer

Get it from Kiehl's or Sephora for $29+ (available in two sizes).

7. An eye cream with three essential ceramides (1, 3, 6-II) to make you bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

amazon.com, amazon.com

What are ceramides, you ask? They basically hold skin cells together and form a protective layer to keep out foreign elements like pollution.

Promising review: "This stuff changed my life. It got rid of the dark circles under my eyes and also worked for the folds around my mouth and nose. I have gotten so many compliments on my skin. I had serious bags and sagging skin at only 25. I have been using this in conjunction with doing facial exercises and after a month and a half my face is tighter and brighter. The only thing I don't like it that it stays on top of my skin and feels greasy. I am already oily, and so I have to wear this on a day I am not wearing makeup underneath or just at night. But for the results, I'll sacrifice! I included my one and a half month results." —kelly vazquez

Get it from Amazon for $11.39 or Walmart for $10.77.

8. A retinol night cream from the trusted brand RoC to reduce fine lines and bags while you sleep — what a dreamy product!

rocskincare.com

Just remember that if you choose to use retinol, you HAVE to wear sunscreen every day, even when it's cloudy out. (You should be doing that anyway, though.)

Promising review: "This stuff is amazing. Honestly one of the most effective anti-wrinkle products available OTC. Retinol is amazing stuff, but also very strong stuff. Use way less than you think you should. Way less than you want. Start with a pea sized amount and only apply every other day at night then gradually build up. This stuff is no joke. If you have sensitive skin you will burn yourself if you go overboard. Honestly though I notice an amazing difference after just a few days. I have an extensive Korean beauty routine and I have added this into it and it is amazing. One last thing! If you use an AHA or BHA apply that as part of your morning routine. Don't apply that right after this product. It changes your skins pH and will blunt the retinol's effect." —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $14.35, Walmart for $17.95, or Jet for $14.51.

9. A Nyx concealer for results that speak for themselves.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I absolutely love this concealer. I have extremely sensitive skin and this doesn’t break me out. I would definitely compare it to most high end concealers I have bought in the past." —Jessii_poohh

Get it from Amazon for $3.49 (available in 20 shades).

10. An eye de-puffer featuring caffeine and vitamin B3 in a tiny container perfect for travel.

kiehls.com

Promising review: "This is an excellent eye cream. I have used Lancome for years with minimal to no result. This is the only eye cream that effectively reduces my eye circle and puffiness." —Kiehl's customer

Get it from Kiehl's for $20.

11. A cult-favorite eye gel with hyaluronic acid and plant stem cells to protect against sun damage and reduce fine lines.

amazon.com, amazon.com, amazon.com

With over 8,000 five-star reviews on Amazon, it's safe to say it's a hit.

Promising review: "I bought the Baebody Eye Gel because my eye area was in need of serious help — I'm a mom, have a job, and recently lost some weight, which is apparently the perfect recipe for an under eye disaster. All the great reviews (and reasonable price) convinced me to give it a try — and I'm so glad I did! I have been using it for just one week and I'm already really happy with the results. The wrinkles under my eye have lessened a lot and my upper eyelid looks so much tighter and less droopy, which was an unexpected bonus." —Gigi C

Get it from Amazon for $23.95.

12. A concealer from Winky Lux you should stop ~eyeing~ and just get.

winkylux.com

It's cruelty-free!

Promising review: "Searched high and low for something for my under-eye blackish blue dark circles from serious allergies. Congratulations Winky Lux, you are a winner for me!!!! Full coverage, no heavy feeling, no settling in small lines and wrinkles!!!!! Have been telling everyone who asks!!!" —KARI

Get it from Winky Lux for $14 (available in five shades).

13. A brightening corrector to cover dark spots and add a nice, dewy glow.

sephora.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I just got this product today. I've already done some research as to application techniques so I tried it out. On bare skin I applied this product with a small kabuki brush. I then layered my IT Cosmetics CC concealer. After that I set it with Ben Nye Super White powder. My under eye creases really badly no matter what, and especially with an extra cream layer so that struggle continues. As for the color correcting, you can see it does a great job. Before I applied concealer it was shimmery and sheer looking. Definitely not a good look alone. I haven't been able to do a complete trial yet but what I've seen so far is impressive. My dark circles have never been covered so much by anything before." —Kate

Get it from Amazon for $32 or Sephora for $32 (available in two shades).

14. A pack of under-eye patches from Tarte adorably packaged in a suitcase so you can tell your dark circles to pack their bags.

instagram.com

The vegan gel patches have jellified algae and coconut oil to help hydrate your sleepy, dry under-eyes.

Promising review: "These are amazing. Literally got rid of dark circles within 15 minutes. I have used the same pack all week and they still work, so definitely don't throw away after one use. Also great if you're tired and need a little brightening!" —DallasJM

Get a pack of four pairs from Sephora for $22.

15. An eye cream with rosehip, hibiscus, and vitamin C to deliver a hydrating punch that's a ~cut~ above the rest.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Okay, after using this for a while, I am now ready to write this review. I LOVE this cream! I noticed a change in my eyes within days of using it. This prompted me to get the vitamin C. Then I sprang for the retinol (too early to review it because I got it for Christmas). My puffy under eyes started to deflate, my upper-lids began to lift, and my fine lines are fading. I use it twice a day, and I apply the eye cream to my entire face after I apply the vitamin C. I took three photos since I’ve started using it." —Turtle-Bugs

Note: You shouldn't use retinol and vitamin C at the same time, but you can use them at different times of the same day.

Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

16. A futuristic LED mask that claims to possibly zap away fine lines and bags.

sephora.com

Promising review: "L-O-V-E! I really love this device and am a tremendous fan of home devices. Using this faithfully as recommended, I absolutely see improvement in the overall appearance of my eyes. I feel this makes the skin around my eyes look brighter, smoother and lifted." —AllergyQueenT

Get it from Sephora for $159.

17. A refreshing eye cream to energize and brighten your eyes, even if the rest of you is still asleep.

instagram.com

It works on all skin types and offers a solution to dullness, puffiness, and eye bags.

Promising review: "When I put this on, say after a night of drinking or any ol' day, I can actually feel this cream quenching my skin's thirst and it is remarkable. Insanely good!" —natagoat

Get it from Sephora for $31.

18. A cooling eye stick you'll be ~beary~ happy with.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I've tried expensive eye creams and this is my favorite. The photo on the right is day three. I've noticed instant results in the puffiness department." —AtP

Get it from Amazon for $8.22.

19. A tinted eye cream that nourishes skin, renews cell turnover, and reduces the looks of bags. It conceals and repairs at the same time!

dermstore.com

Retinyl palmitate protects skin, caffeine tightens skin, and licorice root extract lightens dark circles. The metal applicator has a cooling effect, reduces puffiness, and blends the formula in with your skin tone.

Promising review: "In truth, under-eyes don't need anything special — a good quality facial moisturizer will do the trick. But I keep buying this one again and again because I love the slight peach-y tint that lessens dark circles without the look of full-on-makeup. Worth the splurge for me." —Stevie H

Get it from Derm Store $36.

20. An ice roller that may help with puffiness, along with other problems like migraines and face pain.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Absolutely love this! I keep this in my freezer and bring it out when my face feels puffy from a late night out or after binge watching This is Us." —Karin Rodriguez

Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

21. A hydrating balm to hit your under-eyes with such an explosion of moisture, you won't ~Belif~ it.

instagram.com

Promising review: "I've been using nothing but this cream for the eyes and let me tell you, I think I've fallen in love. I love the consistency to this product. It's very lightweight and feels gel-like but still packs a ton of moisture. It absorbs really quickly but you don't ever lose that hydrated feeling. Some eye creams are too thick for me and they just sit on the skin but this one doesn't do that. It's my go-to now. The scent is also very pleasing. It's my new favorite!" —essentialglam

Get it from Sephora for $48.

22. A royal honey eye cream so good at moisturizing your under-eyes, you'll be sweet on it in no time.

amazon.com

Promising review: "So far I'm impressed, I've only been using it for a week, but I'm already seeing results. I have a small section of crepey skin in the corners of each eye. After using this I can see that the texture is evening out." —Christina

Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

23. A powder eye brightener to make those peepers POP!

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I have very fair skin and when I do my makeup, everything looks perfect, however when I see myself in pictures I ALWAYS have dark circles under my eyes. I am very fair and it is hard for me to find makeup to lighten my eye area, because they tend to be too dark. Pale people problems.

I have not used mineral makeup in years and I am really impressed with the design of the pot. It has a similar idea as a salt shaker. You can turn the top to open or close it and control the amount of powder that comes out. I used a round blending brush to apply the powder to my eyelids and under my eyes. For the final test, I took a nice close photo and look! On the left, I used the Well Rested eye brightener. I am ecstatic." —Jen Rio

Get it from Amazon for $18.13 (available in 29 shades).

24. A soothing gel bead eye mask to soothe your puffy eyes after a restless night of sleep.

amazon.com

Put this mask in the freezer to soothe puffiness or warm it up to help with minor pains. It also works as a sleep mask!

Promising review: "I LOVED this mask! Please note that I did not use it as a 'sleeping' mask. I used it as a hot and cold mask. You can warm it up in the microwave to help relax your eye muscles. It feels soothing after a long day from being on the computer. Be careful! The beads get super hot after microwaving. If they don't feel hot to you, squish the mask around. It'll help warm up the beads. It really does feel like a spa treatment when it's warmed up. I loved that you can chill it in the freezer to help de-puff your eyes in the morning. The chilled eye mask helped relieve some sinus pain from my allergies as well. I like using it chilled before I started my daily routine." —CHRISTINA CHO

Get it from Amazon for $12.15.

25. A collagen power firming eye cream for when it's time to tell those crow's feet to fly away.

amazon.com, amazon.com

It has lots of good ingredients like hyaluronic acid, shea butter, mango seed oil, marine collagen, and argan oil.

Promising review: "I purchased three Mizon collagen products together to try: Original Skin Energy Collagen 100, Intensive Firming Solution Collagen Power Firming Eye Cream, and [reviewer lists this product twice]. While, initially, the results were not outstanding, I have noticed that with continued use, the results improve. I have been using the products for five days now." —shortwork

Get it from Amazon for $14.78.

26. And a splurge-worthy eye balm from La Mer because sometimes throwing money at a problem DOES work.

instagram.com

Promising review: "I've been searching for a good eye cream and finally found it. This is worth every penny! Holy Grail eye cream. It gives my eyes moisture, helps with fine lines, the dark circles are helped by the metal wand, which is wonderful — a part of all La Mer eye creams. I cannot live without this now. I use a small amount and it soaks in and works great under make-up." —MidnightDreamer

Get it from Sephora for $205.
