The Best Eye Creams for Dark Circles, According to Sephora Reviews

Eye creams are tricky territory. They can't be too greasy or else they can migrate into the eye area and cause puffiness. If they're too thick, they might congest the pores, which could then lead to milia, those little white bumps that form around the eyes and need to be professionally extracted. And here's a biggie: You actually shouldn't be applying eye cream at night. Because the skin underneath the eyes is so thin, there tends to be more water retention in the area, especially when you're lying down all night long, meaning you'll wake up with puffiness. That's why thinner formulas with plumping and smoothing ingredients will serve you well (when applied in the morning, of course).

Now that we've helped you sift through the market a bit, we thought we'd take things a step further and sort through the top-rated eye creams on Sephora based on highest reviews. Because even though the formula might check all the boxes, we want to know that they're approved by real women. See their top picks below.
