The 10 Best Eye Creams For Under-Eye Circles

Dark circles, be gone.

Editor's Picks

It feels like it happened overnight: one day I was bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and then the next day I had dreaded dark circles under my eyes. My dark circles love me so much that they are often kind enough to occasionally bring a friend along with them: bags.

Dark circles can be contributed to many things such as age, fatigue, dehydration, allergies, or overexposure to the sun. Unfortunately, some of us have a genetic predisposition to dark circles no matter our age or how much rest we get. The good news is, you can call in reinforcement to assist with those pesky dark circles. Below are 10 eye creams/serums that will keep you looking fresh-faced.

Black women have been redefining what wellness looks like since the beginning of time.
