It’s not enough to just have faith that a product will work as promised—these days, we want cold hard proof. That means reviews from beauty voices we actually trust. And who do we trust more than the beauty pros, lovers and tributes on TikTok for their honest takes and real talk and tea?

This time, the product in question is the new Drunk Elephant A-Shaba ComplexTM Eye Serum ($64), which is now available at Ulta Beauty. Popular thanks to its vegan retinol formulation—which, when combined with the caffeine and copper peptides, targets key signs of aging—this serum visibly smooths fine lines and wrinkles, reduces the look of puffiness and restores elasticity and firmness. All without involving any animal-derived ingredients. And, since this eye serum is the latest drop from the trendy Drunk Elephant skincare brand, you know TikTok is all over it.

Aylen Park: The One with Puffy Eyes

After a few weeks of testing the eye serum by applying a single pump under and around her eyes, morning and night, @aylennpark noticed her eyes were more glowy and less puffy. “If you’re someone who struggles from puffiness or you just want to target key signs of aging, then I really, really recommend this product…I’m so happy with the results,” she praised.

Monica Veloz: The One Who’s Booked and Busy

In other words: Feeling the effects of constant travel and lack of quality sleep, which almost always shows up on the eyes first. Says @monicastylemuse: “This serum is going to help target any key signs of aging, while also tackling any of that puffiness and also visibly smoothing any fine lines and wrinkles. Sign me up….Your girl may be booked, your girl may be busy, but she’ll never look tired.”

Tanya Marie: The One Who Looks Out for Her Husband’s Skin Too

When the product is good, you’ve got to share the love—even if it’s just with the person with whom you also share a bathroom sink. Cute couple @lifeoftanyamarie and her husband don’t gatekeep anti-aging secrets from each other. They agree that the Drunk Elephant A-Shaba ComplexTM Eye Serum “feels really nice, light, airy,” and the anti-aging benefits (more a necessity for Tanya’s husband than herself, they joke) help smooth his wrinkles and keep his face feeling good.
