We’ve all got ‘em — the dreaded, dark, mini half-moons under our eyes that act as a dead giveaway when we’ve been skimping on our sleep. While dark circles are worse for some than others (thanks, genetics!), lack of zzz’s or even nasal congestion can also give us a major case of shadow eye. Heck, even celebs including Kourtney Kardashian and former Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher aren’t immune to them — but lucky for us, Fletcher has the cure for what ails us all.
“I’ve been struggling with my dark circles,” the 26-year-old lamented to E! But her secret weapon, IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Cream ($48), has just the right ingredient to wake tired peepers up. “I’ve been using [it] because it has caffeine in it,” she revealed. “I find anything with some sort of caffeine in it really helps under my eyes.”
Coffee-based creams work by reducing puffiness and redness thanks to the anti-inflammatory properties found in the beans and are also chock full of antioxidants and vitamins that can help discoloration and texture. In short? It works. Welcome to the light side, eyes!
