Are you a new mom, a seasoned mom, a 30-something, a constant traveler, or just someone who had a kick ass weekend at the Beyonce and Jay-Z concert? We don’t know about you but as we age, the problem of puffy eyes and under eye baggage is getting worse and harder to fight! Other than sleep and living a stress-free life, which HA!, just isn’t always possible, we trust a few handy and reliable products to help us fight off, prevent, or simply hide this problem:

The VP Ice Roller
Ahhh the ice roller, you know we love our VP ice rollers! We roll the cold ice roller all over our faces but in particular over our eyes to help ease the puffiness. It feels AMAZING! It also aids in the occasional headache from sleep deprivation so we roll it over our foreheads for some relief! And lastly, it helps tighten our pores! Who doesn’t want tightened pores?! Go.get.one.of.these.today.

Dr. Brandt No More Baggage
This product is marketed to help ease the dark circles under your eyes and reduce puffiness. We found that you have to use the product consistently for about 2-3 weeks before we noticed a change in the dark circles but we immediately noticed the cooling effect. Similarly to the ice roller, it cools and tightens the pores above and under our eyes. We definitely notice a decrease in puffiness after applying this product. We apply it to our under and upper eyes and let it dry before applying any moisturizer or makeup. Get yours here!

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye
This is the holy grail! Seriously this was a game changer for us! We feel human again after using this product! The coverage is amazing but it is still light and what we love most is that it doesn’t ripple or cake under our eyes. A tab of this concealer covers the under eye, a little bit over top of our lids, and sometimes we even use it to smooth over blemishes on the rest of our face. This is a must buy!

So, since the only TRUE remedy for a face free of puffy and baggy under eyes is not always possible, it is just fine to get by with a little help from Vanity Planet, Dr. Brandt, and It Cosmetics, right? Let us know in the comments how you fight off the dreaded puffy and baggy eye problem!

Cue the Clueless scene of Brittany Murphy sitting on the kitchen counter at the house party singing… rolling with the homies. Cheesy we know but every time we use our ice rollers all we can think of are songs that we can incorporate rolling into! (rolling, rolling, rolling – get those ice rollers rolling…okay we’ll stop)

But what is an ice roller you ask? It is an amazing $17ish device by Vanity Planet that will make you feel like a whole new person – or at least for a few minutes. The ice roller has a metal cylinder attached to the end that you store in the freezer and roll over your face whenever you need a refresher.

Didn’t sleep well last night? Roll this puppy over those tired eyes to reduce swelling. Hung over? Roll this over your forehead and that headache will instantly feel less painless. Acne? Roll the device over your face regularly to reduce redness and shrink those pimples. There are so many benefits to ice rolling, it has become our favorite new device.

The one downfall? All of our ice rollers seem to squeak but hey if we will have smaller pores and glowing skin – a little squeaking never hurt nobody!
