Most of us have been working from home for more than half a year, resulting in endless Zoom meetings and more screen time – both for work and leisure – than ever, which can cause your eyes to look tired and dark circles to appear more pronounced. And while it might be October, we’re not keen on looking like an extra in Halloween, so we’ve put together a list of our favourite eye serums, creams and balms to treat your peeper problems.

All products featured on Dulu are independently selected by our editors.
