In these cases, an eye cream to de-puff, smooth, brighten and tighten is just what the doctor ordered. Here are three for every budget…
3 EYE CREAMS FOR EVERY BUDGET

The best thing for puffy under-eyes? A cooling gel – which is exactly what this pick from Anatomicals offers up. The formula tightens the area, providing a soothing base for make-up. And at under 10 dollars, there’s really no arguing with that.
Now for the sciencey part. Hylamide (from DECIEM, the same geniuses behind The Ordinary) brings forth a dream of an advanced serum, which not only serves as a quick fix, but looks to help with the long-term correction of puffs and bags, too. Hydration and circulation, here you come.
Yes, you’ll have to dig a bit deeper in your pocket for this one, but it basically does everything you could possibly want an eye cream to do, so no biggie. Exfoliates the eye area to brighten? Check. Contains the magical hyaluronic acid (aka dry skin's worst enemy)? Check. Acts as a primer? Check. Soothes puffiness and smooths lines? All the checks.
