With so many under eye patches claiming to be the best on the market, it can be difficult to discern what actually works to brighten dark circles, erase fine lines, and hydrate skin, and what will just leave you with wet, sticky under eyes that appear drastically… unchanged. Effective eye masks should have collagen-stimulating formulas infused with plenty of hydrating ingredients to give eyes a youthful and radiant appearance. One set you have to try, according to Amazon shoppers? These $16 snail extract-infused and collagen eye gel treatments that reviewers report make a difference in mere days.

Each one of Mizon's Under Eye Collagen Patches is drenched in a hydrating mixture packed with potent anti-agers such as peptides, a collection of short-chain amino acids that are the foundation of all the proteins in your body (including collagen and elastin), New York-based dermatologist Jeremy Brauer, M.D., previously told Shape. These peptides deliver instructional messages and ingredients to your cells so they increase production of these proteins. The bottom line? More collagen and elastin means fewer wrinkles and greater skin resiliency," Dr. Brauer added. (

Buy It: Mizon Under Eye Collagen Patches, $16,

In addition to peptides, the formula contains a slightly cringey ingredient with a serious anti-aging payoff: snail slime. The snail mucin helps the skin retain moisture and firmness, while keeping irritation at bay, thanks to the natural hyaluronic acid that it holds. It is also naturally rich in glycolic acid and peptides — used by mollusks to heal injuries — which allows the snail extract to not only moisturize and exfoliate skin, but also stimulate collagen production.

If you're wondering why you shouldn't just go for under eye patches with collagen as the star ingredient, hear this out: The molecular weight of collagen is actually too large to penetrate the top layer of your skin, Kavita Mariwalla, M.D., a New York-based dermatologist, previously told Shape. Since it sits near the skin's surface, it helps lock in moisture, but you should instead seek out products with collagen-building ingredients like antioxidants and peptides, she added — things the Mizon eye patches are chock full of.

Boasting more than 4,500 five-star ratings, Amazon shoppers tout these under eye masks for banishing dark spots and circles, moisturizing dry skin, and reducing the appearance of aging and sagging skin — with some noting they are the best they've tried for making them look visibly younger. "I put them on first thing in the morning and remove [them] when they are dry. It looks 10 years younger underneath when you first peel the dry patch off," wrote one.

Many reported that they saw a noticeable difference in the disappearance of the wrinkles around their eyes with consistent use. "I have had these for a couple of months, but only was using one or two days a week," another shared. "I have used them every day for the last week, and the dark circles are gone, and I can see a huge reduction in fine lines!"

Furthermore, others had impressive results in just a few days. "I'm 43, and these have greatly decreased bags under my eyes, as well as wrinkles. I was hesitant to get them, but I use them daily for 30 minutes and have no plans to stop. I saw results after just three to four days," reported a customer.
