If there’s one thing I love more than warming my feet against a toasty radiator on a rainy day, it’s an under-the-radar skincare find. So it is with great happiness that I bring you this news: One Kim Kardashian and Megan Fox-approved brand has an eye cream that shoppers dub the best dark circle remedy they’ve ever tried. 

“This product has gotten rid of (let me repeat again…gotten rid of) the dark circles under my eyes,” a shopper wrote. “I used to look as though I had two thumb-sized bruises below my eyes, and now I can go without any cover-up at all.” They continued: “Additionally, it’s also great for reducing puffiness below the eyes. This is a product I will never do without and implore you to make the investment. You will not be sorry.”

Sometimes when I take a look at a product’s ingredients I cringe and close the page, never to recommend the find again. Other, better times, an ingredient list makes me hum with delight. Epicuren’s eye cream is in the latter category, as it  relies on a bounty of plant-based oils and extracts. There’s horse chestnut extract, sweet almond oil, vitamin E, evening primrose oil, and aspergillus ferment, along with kukui seed oil, vitamin C, jojoba oil, squalane, and licorice root extract to brighten. 

Lest that sound like a bunch of marketing fodder, reviewers beg to differ. “I have used a million products for my face, and I am ALWAYS skeptical of the claims of the products,” wrote one such person. “I was stunned at how well this eye serum worked for me. I regularly have puffiness under my eyes, and am trying to stem the tide of wrinkles, and I could not believe how well this worked. I am really, really, happy with the results.” 

Said effects partially come down to the benefits of horse chestnut extract. Research published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science found that the extract contains “potent anti-inflammatory compounds” called saponins, which “reduce capillary fragility, and therefore help to prevent leakage of fluids into surrounding tissues, which can cause swelling.” The extract is also a more powerful antioxidant than vitamin E, the researchers wrote, and demonstrates cell-protective effects.
