We've all been there— you wake up, take a peek in the mirror and find that not only is your face bloated, but your eyes have bags that aren't exactly designer. I'm one of those people who instantly retains water and fluid in her face, so I beyond relate. And on those days, I have a secret weapon: Perricone MD Re:Firm Eye. It's a gel that turns into a serum as you rub it between your fingers, and it is pretty much magic. I have seen it work miracles on a face that has been deprived of its fair share of beauty sleep. Like this morning, for example. Read on for all of the key deets that you need to know!

What It's Called:

Perricone MD Re:Firm Eye

How Much It Will Set You Back:

Soooo, it ain't cheap, but it's probably a better bet than all those things you're buying from Zara only because they are on sale... or $115;

What Makes It Special?

This eye cream has what is called a "dermal stim factor" which works to tighten and lift instantly, while also working to prevent aging of that skin down the line. It also plumps up fine lines before you can blink.

Who's It For?

Anyone who likes a gentle, lightweight eye cream, and is looking for a product that does double-duty.

When to Use It?

In the morning, upon rising, or before you apply makeup.

It comes out as a slightly flubbery gel, and then melts into a lightweight serum when you rub it between your fingers.

What It Smells Like:
