Cerave Eye Repair Cream | Under Eye Cream for Dark Circles and Puffiness

Whenever I talk about drugstore skincare with friends and family, the conversation often transforms into a 10-minute rave session about the wonders of CeraVe. The brand doesn't miss: Its Healing Ointment recently saved me from the horrors of picked-at dry skin (cringe), and according to shoppers, its Eye Repair Cream is also intensely good.

At just $11, the find currently presides as Amazon's top-selling eye treatment, beating out even prestige options going for $38. And as the Eye Repair Cream's over 13,000 five-star ratings and 1,000 glowing reviews extoll, you'll be hard-pressed to do better for crow's feet, dark circles, puffy bags, and sagging skin. "I didn't think this was working for a couple weeks. A month later, it's the best under-eye cream I have ever used," wrote one person. "[It] drastically minimized puffy under-eyes and dark circles. I don't have to wear nearly as much makeup under my eyes now."

While it may sound too good to be true, when parents chime in to second the praise, you know it's the real deal. "I've been embarrassed for years about the bags under my eyes, but with two preschoolers at home, stress, and mild insomnia, I didn't see a way out," wrote a commenter with sensitive skin. "This is like a little miracle tube...I've gone from looking like there are bruises under my eyes to looking normal again. It doesn't have an overwhelming smell, either, which I appreciate. It's worth every penny."

To buy: $11 (was $14);

Others note that it's the best "inexpensive, but expensive-feeling" buy, and its effect on small under-eye wrinkles and darkness makes shoppers' friends ask what they've done to look younger. Within a week, customers see "fabulous" results: reduced puffiness, bags, and wrinkles, even when battling against long hours on the job. "I started using this product and my under-eyes are more plump and moisturized than they've ever been," adds a tired reviewer. "No wrinkles in sight."

Looking at the formula, that's thanks to a mix of deeply hydrating ingredients like jojoba oil, hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, sweet almond oil, and three of the brand's trademark ceramides. You get a potently brightening boost from niacinamide, the Eye Repair Cream's second-most ingredient, as horsetail extract firms wrinkles while kelp and algae extract moisturize and add antioxidants.

Older shoppers, too, are pleased enough to stick with the Eye Repair Cream for years, according to a 65-year-old who has no wrinkles around the eyes to show for it. "I find that CeraVe Eye Repair Cream helps significantly with under-eye dark circles and wrinkles around the eyes," wrote another fan; even those in the desert say it improved their eye wrinkles within a single night.

"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," wrote a last shopper with "serious bags" and sagging skin. "I have gotten so many compliments on my skin." Pick it up for yourself while Amazon's sale is running.
