EYE PUFFINESS? DARK CIRCLES? Estee Lauder Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator
Bedrest is a necessity, but with the fast pace of modern life, we don’t always get enough of it.

With a patent pending ceramic tip and extracts of sea algae, caffeine and sucrose, this little tool massages the delicate eye area and instantly brightens and refreshes. We tested this out during a busy week and it helped us look alert even when running on 2 hours of sleep.
