I haven't experimented with eye creams much as yet, but I always have an eye mask kept in my freezer. I use it when I'm super sleep deprived to fight bags and puffiness. Just a few minutes is enough to freshen up my eyes and help them look more alert.

My go-to product on days when I feel like my dark circles are a little too visible is definitely my luminizing pen from YSL. It conceals any signs of fatigue or puffiness and adds an immediate brightness to my face! It's like an instant pick-me-up wand for my face!

Sometimes when I stay up late, I get dark circles and puffy under eyes. I always use wet green tea leaves from Tetly to take care of it. I heat some water, put the tea leaves in and once the tea leaves are soft, I put them in a piece of cloth and tie it up. Then I press my under eye area with the bag of tea leaves. Works like a dream for me!

I could never perfect the “cover your dark circles with concealer" hack. So I opted for the easier one - Fabindia Aloe Vera Soothing Gel. It not only soothes my under eye skin but it also helps banish dark circles and keeps my skin protected against problems. The best part? You can see amazing results overnight.

The Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector (SPF 30) has been a total lifesaver for me. I’ve always been a night bird, and very rarely get my eight hours of sleep. I started developing dark circles, and that’s one thing makeup doesn’t cover up easily. It’s easy to use and highly effective. I love it!

Mac Studio Finish concealer is perfect for covering dark circles. The creamy formula is apt for my under eye area since the formula isn’t too runny. The coverage is amazing, and the concealer blends with my skin effortlessly! I love how the container is so travel friendly and I can just carry it along anywhere I go!

Dark circles have been a long-standing problem for me since a very long time. Having a busy schedule leaves me with very little time to sleep, therefore I have a constant tired look and dark circles under my eyes. Having sensitive skin doesn't help. Thankfully, Garnier Skin Naturals Complete Eye Roll-On came to me like a knight in shining armour. What I love about it is that it’s easy to apply, feels light on my skin and helps relax my eyes after a long day in front of my computer screen.

This Mac Studio Conceal Palette has four concealers and two correctors. When it comes to dealing with dark circles, puffy eyes and blemishes, it conceals them flawlessly. Of all the products in the market I’ve tried, this one is so far the best! It’s like my saviour in disguise.
