On a recent perusal of the skincare section at Sephora, one type of product kept popping up: eye gels. It seems like such an obvious skincare must-have, and yet, for some reason, we never had any in our arsenal until now! Below, the ones we recommend you check out immediately (if not sooner).
Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel
First of all, it’s blue, which we just think is fun and different. But what we really love? It’s extremely cooling (and not just the second you apply, but for a long while afterward), and it has the consistency of a cream. It’s just a bonus that it perks up our tired eyes in no time.

Philosophy Eyes Wide Open
This unassuming little while tube packs a major punch. It smooths and depuffs skin instantly, not to mention it has a delightful cooling quality.

Bliss Baggage Handler Eye Gel
We love every Bliss product just for the names alone! And this one definitely does what it says–it makes all that under-eye baggage just disappear, thanks to cucumber extract and algae extract! Especially great for long flights.

Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel
The name alone makes you know it’s going to make your under-eye area look and feel its best, wouldn’t you agree? Plus, it smells like refreshing cucumbers and has an innovative pump design.

The Art of Shaving Eye Gel
The chamomile scent is utterly relaxing, which makes this perfect right before bed (why not get the under-eye bags under control while you’re getting your beauty rest, right?).

Peter Thomas Roth Power K Eye Rescue
Definitely the most science project-like of the bunch! This eye gel is formulated with Co-Q-10 in the appearance of caviar-like beads, which smooth into the skin upon impact and protect the eye area from aging.
