"There are quite a few steps, so stick with me," Shay Mitchell said in the most recent Vogue Beauty Secrets video. The Pretty Little Liars star broke down her 58-step regimen, which included a cellulite firming mask, a de-puffing facial ice roller, and plenty more enviable lotions and potions. But most intriguing, Mitchell revealed her "big secret" for hydrated under-eyes, which happens to be $6 on Amazon.

The Basic Brands Vitamin E Ointment contains vitamin E, wheat germ oil, and aloe vera — that's it. All three ingredients work in tandem to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, and stretch marks, healing the skin tissue and protecting against damage from free radicals. As Joshua Zeichner, M.D., the director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City previously shared with InStyle, "While vitamin E is working to neutralize free radical damage to protect skin from UV light exposure, it is also brightening and evening out skin tone." Even better, each jar of the ointment is completely natural, non-GMO, and free of added fragrance, phthalates, propylene glycol, sulfates, and dyes.

Mitchell pats the ointment around her eye area immediately after using the Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado. "I put it on heavier before I go to sleep at night," she said. "Because in my mind, it feels like it helps my eyebrows grow." She also applies any leftover product from application onto her lips for added hydration.

Beyond gaining celebrity-approval, the multipurpose skincare hack is beloved by hundreds of Amazon shoppers who claim it's a "miracle healer" and the "best beauty cream out there" for reducing large pores, eczema, dry hands, brittle fingernails, and scars. It's incredible benefits have attracted customers for life — one person says they've been using it for over 18 years — with many finding unique uses for it across the entire body, including on insect bites, sunburns, and rough cuticles. 

"It heals scars and marks wonderfully and softens my hands fabulously; but its best use is on my face overnight," wrote one reviewer. "It heals the skin so well, my face looks like glass upon waking, [and] the pores are so small."

"Love this stuff," shared another. "When my sister and I were growing up, our grandmother would rub vitamin E ointment on our cuts and scrapes to prevent scarring. Now that I'm in my twenties, I use it on my face to help heal random acne spots, and on the tiny fine lines that are starting to pop up."
