Spring! The days are longer, the weather's balmy, the flowers are practically singing, and those we-really-shouldn’t-have sunglasses have never felt more worth it. Especially since they’re covering our...red, puffy eyes. Whether due to those après-work drinks, the uninterrupted stream of salty, slightly festive snacks (chips and guac, we wish we knew how to quit you!), or the extra-rude pollen count, we've been waking up looking like basset hounds and feeling like we’ve been stung by "tracker jackers" á la Katniss Everdine (NERD ALERT!). Do you feel us on this? If so, we have a recommendation: Clinique’s All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage (yes, massage). This stuff cools on contact, and actually relieves the achiness emanating from your eye sockets. And it's de-puffing properties create a smoother canvas for our very-necessary under-eye concealer. Just two strokes of the little metal roller ball under each eye (inner corner to outer corner) will have you feeling altogether bright eyed—no sticky residue, no weird scent, no joke. And if you store it in your fridge for that extra de-puffing punch, we won't tell anyone.
