So why are they so beloved? They’re infused with Icelandic glacial water plus peptides and antioxidants that all work together to de-puff and give you that instant, wide-awake look. Even better, they’re free of controversial ingredients like parabens, petroleum, mineral oil, and phthalates. Plus they’re 100% vegan and cruelty-free.

And really, there’s no better day than Monday to pick these guys up. If you’re anything like me, you tend to wake up puffier and more tired-looking at the start of the week.

Keep these Skyn Iceland Eye Gels in the fridge (pro tip), and you can pop them on for ten minutes Monday morning while you’re drinking your a.m. coffee. The extra chill will help de-puff even more, so you can walk into work feeling more confident, and never have to hear anyone say to you the dreaded, “you look tired.”
