We pride ourselves onВ being walking beauty encyclopedias. Chances are if a friend tells us about the miracle serum they just discovered, we've already tried it and can tell themВ the science behind why it works so well. But every once in awhile, we'll stumble across a product that's gained a ton of traction on an unassuming platform, like the comments section of Reddit or Amazon, and we'll wonder howВ we've carried on for so long without ever knowing its existence.
This happened to me recently with anВ eye gel by the brand Baebody. To be honest, had it passed by my desk without any context, I'd probably toss it to the side-"Baebody" soundsВ like an MTV makeoverВ show. But skimming throughВ over 10,000В comments on Amazon, it's clearВ it isn't your typical under-eye treatment: Says one reviewer, "Literally overnight, I could tell a difference in my eye area. The puffiness was gone, and the darkness had begun to dissipate. In just a few uses, I have noticed my overall complexion looking more awake and refreshed than before. I have sensitive skin and eyes, and this product did not irritate either of them."
Peppered within a sea ofВ customer praiseВ are incredible before and after pictures of decreasedВ puffiness, and overall firmer, brighter under-eyes. While bags aren't a big problem for me just yet (my under eyes are actually quite hallow), the skin is very thin and could use some help in the brightening department, so I figured I had to give it a try. I was immediately impressed with the texture-a cool gel that's much lighter than a regular cream (of which tends to give me milia) and soaks into the skin nicely, albeit a bit tacky.В I also like the way it dispenses. The top is a concave round capВ with a small hole in the center that you press down to receive a dollop of product. This makes for a much more hygienic mode of application, and I'm assuming this helps preserve the ingredients (cucumber, jojoba oil, licorice, aloe, and hyaluronic acid, to name a few).
It's got a strong cucumber smell that I'm notВ super fond of, but it dissipates quickly. I definitely noticed that the area was brighter and more hydrated the next morning, and although it wasn'tВ noticeable with bare skin, once I put my foundation on, there was a palpable difference in tightness.В Turns out the rave reviews are completely accurate.
