Long nights at work, binge-watching Netflix till the sun comes up, staying out waaay too late—we all know the struggles of under-eye bags and puffiness. These are not the designer bags we love; they’re the heavy, dark ones that make us seem way old and too tired to function.

The under-eye is a super sensitive area, so I like to opt for a different cream than what I use for the rest of my face when I’m dealing with the tender and telltale spot around my eyes. I’m constantly frustrated by the black bags and fine lines that just keep popping up so, after using Burt’s Bees Skin Nourishment Eye Cream for a couple of weeks, and seeing major changes in my under-eye appearance, I was pretty thrilled.

This Burt’s Bees eye cream left my skin feeling smooth and hydrated, reduced those fine lines and helped keep the puffiness at bay. The dark circles under my eyes became way less visible, so I looked like I’d had a full night’s sleep, even after I pulled an all-nighter. #win

I also fell in love with the cream’s easy applicator. It has a small tip so it gets right in those hard-to-reach spots under my eye and it doesn’t release a ton of product all at once. Normally, my eye cream ends up everywhere but the area it’s supposed to go but this stuff easily distributes an even amount of cream, so it’s pretty much foolproof.

As I begin to get older (it’s FINE. I’m fine.), I’m realizing why skincare is just so important. I definitely want to hang on to my youth for as long as possible, and Burt’s Bees nourishing and hydrating collection is def helping.

Now that the power of moisturizing has brought life back to my stubborn under-eyes and my skin is feeling hydrated, the only thing that’s thirsty is me, for a patio and a cocktail.
