This Caffeinated Balm Is the Only Thing That Wakes Up My Tired Eyes

It depuffs, moisturizes, and leaves a glow—which I definitely cannot say for my morning coffee.

I don't really use eye products. I don't wear eyeliner, I rarely wear mascara, and I don't use under-eye concealers, either (bold, I know). Moreover, every time I try a new skincare product that targets dark circles and puffiness, I find they don't do much—until I started using Kopari's Starry Eye Balm.

The pink eye balm comes in a cute and compact individual palette. It's made with tons of nourishing ingredients like shea butter and several oils including coconut, watermelon, coffee, and rose. That formulation combined with hyaluronic acid and caffeine make this a powerhouse for your delicate eye area. It's super moisturizing, helps depuff, and thanks to the shimmer, actually conceals dark circles with a healthy glow.

Whenever I've slept poorly, I always rely on the Starry Eye Balm to help make it seem like I wasn't tossing and turning all night. Plus, I love that it's kind of skincare and makeup rolled into one—even if I'm not using it as a treatment, I like to use it to highlight under my eyes. (The brand notes that it can be used as a primer before makeup application, too.) It's the only eye product I use, and thanks to it's multitasking abilities, the only one I need.

I'm not the only one who loves it—hundreds of shoppers are raving about the Kopari balm, calling it the "perfect potion" and even the secret to "younger-looking eyes."

"This balm leaves my eyes feeling so soft that I apply it without eye cream," one customer wrote. "It makes the perfect base for eyeshadow application or leaves a beautiful 'your eyes, but better' glow on its own. The perfect multitasker and timesaver. I'm on my third one—please don't discontinue."

The best part? A little certainly goes a long way. Since it's made with coconut oil, the product is super spreadable, and you only need a small amount to work its magic. I've had mine for months now and it looks like I've barely touched it.
