There's nothing worse than waking up with puffy, tired eyes on the day of a big event (as if you weren't already stressed enough!). Luckily, one of Hollywood's most relatable (and most admired) celebrity couples has a hack for that. The Good Place star Kristen Bell posed with husband Dax Shepard for an Instagram photo sporting Skyn Iceland's Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels ($34, $45, on the way to a photoshoot earlier this year.

In the caption, posted on her personal account last January, she wrote that they were "de-puffing" on the way to a photo shoot for "something really special, we've been working on for over a year." We'll take that as a sign that she trusts these undereye masks to work in high-pressure situations—and after looking at the ingredients, we can totally see why.

A great pick for anyone on-the-go, the 10-minute treatment is packed with powerful Ginkgo Biloba Leaf extract—which has anti-inflammatory properties—to reduce swelling on the thin skin of the undereye area. That means you can say bye-bye to puffy eyes for good—even if your night consisted of tears or minimal sleep. (Related: Kristen Bell Says CBD Lotion Helps Her Sore Muscles–But Does It Really Work?)

But while the de-puffing properties make these perfect for event prep, there's more to these gel masks than meets the (under) eye. Hexapeptides (nicknamed "botox in a jar"), included in the anti-aging formula, can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by calming the muscles under your skin.

But the high-tech science doesn't end there. The vegan, all-natural eye masks also contain Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), which is an antioxidant naturally produced by our bodies. The enzyme, like other antioxidants, can even neutralize free radicals (which have been linked to aging).

Unlike many other patches that tend to be slimy and prone to slipping, reviewers say these undereye gels stay in place and don't leave behind unwanted residue. The fabric exterior also means glasses-wearers can wear them underneath their glasses—so they can finally partake in the undereye mask trend without losing their 20/20 vision.

Celebrities aren't the only ones raving about Skyn's eye treatments. One five-star Amazon raved: “My favorite part of my beauty regimen.The skyn ICELAND eye gels have been a godsend. I sampled them in a beauty box a couple years ago and couldn't find them anywhere locally. One night I was on Amazon and they appeared. BAM—in the cart you go. The eye gels are cooling when applied, and moisturizing to the delicate eye area. My skin looks stunning and refreshed after each use. They're a little pricey but the results can't be replicated by any other product. Splurge and enjoy!" (Related: The Eye Mask Kristin Cavallari Uses to De-Puff In a Hurry)
