There are days when all the stress and all-nighters lead to your dreaded “panda eyes”. And sure, sometimes they don’t even stay that long. But when those black circles stay longer than you expect them to, you gotta stay on top of it and make sure you’re focusing your attention to minimizing or totally erasing those unflattering under-eye circles!
Dark circles are usually caused by either the thinness of the under-eye skin or hyper pigmentation, which both causes pronounced under-eye circles that may vary in darkness. Dark circles often appear with other skin issues as well, so we are quite sure that if you have dark circles, you might be having issues with collagen loss, puffiness, or just plain dullness of skin.
Tired of looking so stressed every day because of your dark circles? There are ways other than concealment that could help you minimize the darkness around your eyes. We’ve provided you with the best luxury products out there to help your eye area look brighter.
Got puffy eyes along with the dreaded eye circles? Put a cooling patch in there and you’ll immediately see the tightening of the skin and the de-puffing of your under-eye. Klorane’s smoothing and relaxing patches are the best for this purpose, especially after you let them stay in the fridge for extra cooling.
Fresh adds Noni fruit in the formula of their Age-Delay Eye Concentrate, an ingredient filled with antioxidants to make sure that it doesn’t only make your skin firm, but also protect your under-eye skin from UV rays. This product tackles puffiness, too!

Retinol hugely diminishes fine lines that can make you much younger than your real age, and Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment supplies you with that through its beta-carotene content.

We love dual-purpose products, and Ole Henriksen totally gets that. The Banana Bright Eye Crème doesn’t only acts as a dark circle minimizer, but it doubles as a concealer too! It contains an added boost of collagen to heighten skin elasticity and Vitamin C to brighten the under-eye complexion.
With Dior’s eye gel, your skin won’t only get soothed, but de-puffed as well. It comes with a ceramic applicator that doesn’t only precisely apply the cream, but has a cooling effect that helps in relaxing the skin too.

Chanel covers both your dark circles and fine lines in just one product: the Le Lift Anti-Wrinkle Flash Eye Revitalizer. It comes in a two-step process with serum patches that can both lessen darkness in the under-eye area and also diminish the prominence of your fine lines.
