Whether it’s lack of sleep, genetics or allergies, tackling puffy eyes and dark circles can be difficult. However, there’s one best-selling skin care product at Amazon that promises to erase any trace of those pesky under-eye bags, tired, dark circles and more.
For over 14,000 reviewers, Baebody Eye Gel is the answer to all the common skin care woes associated with eyes. While many eye creams promise to solve one specific concern, Baebody’s best-selling gel addresses dark circles, puffiness, wrinkles and bags. Dark circles are generally genetic, but enthusiastic Amazon shoppers swear by this skin care hero — and the thousands of reviews back up its effectiveness.

There’s no single magic ingredient in this formula — in fact, there’s not a whole lot of actives. In the case of Baebody’s eye gel, less is more.
The main ingredients are known hydrators, including jojoba oil, aloe vera, hyaluronic acid and cucumber extract. Licorice root extract diminishes dark under-eye circles while vitamin E, which amps up the formula with a dose of antioxidant properties. There’s also matrixyl 3000, which is an anti-aging peptide that likely contributes to those skin-firming results reviewers love so much. Matrixyl 3000 is also known to reduce darkness, redness and inflammation. All in all, the formula is solid and at $24, the price can’t be beat.
Now, a look at the rave reviews.
Baebody eye gel has over 8,500 5-star reviews and when it comes to dark circles, many swear by this to obliterate the issue.
“I’m a guy approaching 40 who doesn’t look a day over 55. I’ve gone grey, I’ve got my wrinkles, and I can and do enjoy getting away with being “dignified,” but black circles around my eyes, caused by endocrine issues just make me look tired, which sucks,” explains a 5-star reviewer. “After looking over about a billion things, I decided to start here just because it was cheap, but this stuff has blown my mind. Within a few days I was looking better, and a few weeks in, I’m now thinking I might go from looking like a raccoon to looking like a regular human being who doesn’t have rings at all. A+ will be buying again (eventually, you don’t need much, and I expect this will last me at least a year).”
Another, who just turned 50 and bought her second jar adds, “I’m so completely amazed at the results. I’ve been using this for 6 months and the dark areas that have circled my eyes my entire life are all but GONE. Truly. I didn’t expect such dramatic results, so I didn’t bother doing before and after photos.”
One reviewer goes as far as to call the skin care hero “life-changing” for puffiness and is on their third jar.
“I have purchased three jars of this and can’t go a day without putting it on morning and night,” explains the enthusiastic fan. “It’s not an overnight fix, but with time and consistent use, I noticed a big difference. I have actually stopped having to wear heavy make up every day. Most days I just put this on with some mascara and lip color and go. Life changing.”
Another adds, “As a guy, I can be somewhat hesitant about trying out new beauty products, but after reading the reviews I thought it’d be worth a shot. Looking at some of my pictures I noticed how tired I was looking and I decided maybe I can reduce some of the puffiness around my eyes. After reading the reviews and seeing some of the photos of the results people have had I thought it’d be worth to give it a shot. After just one use my colleagues at work noticed and said it looks like I’ve finally gotten some rest or that it looks like maybe I’ve fallen in love. Yes, I have fallen in love, with Baebody eye gel.”
Fine lines and wrinkles
Baebody eye gel also addresses fine lines and wrinkles. One reviewer explains, “I am 56 years old, beginning to get some serious under eye lines. I was skeptical when I purchased this product. I read that I could use it all over my face and not just under my eyes, that is exactly what I have been doing, and after only using for a few days, there is visible improvement in the fine lines and wrinkles. I would recommend this product 100 percent.”
Another happy customer adds, “I have seen a reduction in those little wrinkles that bunch up right under the eye, firmness in the whole undereye area and a reduction in the dark circles. I’m very pleased and will be buying this product again.”
“Believe the hype,” writes one skeptic turned fan. “Amazing product. Worked like magic on eyes dark circles and puffiness!” raves another.
It’s worth noting that the gel comes in an air-tight package and should be used twice a day — morning and night — for the best results. At 1.7-ounces for $20, it’s a decent amount of product to last a few months, and it’s sophisticated packaging helps prevent bacteria growth and helps the formula maintain its potency.
“I cannot live without this product anymore,” explains one reviewer. “I am a litigation attorney and stress and ours can certainly take a toll on my face. Mostly under my eyes. I love the actual consistency of this product and also the effect that it has and it has now become a staple in my daily facial regimen routine.”
