With claims to get rid of dark circles under your eyes and reduce puffiness, does the viral Disco Eye Stick really work? I’ve used it for 1 1/2 months and will help answer if it really is worth it. The results may surprise you.
It’s officially time for, “Is It Worth It…Let Me Work It” where we look at one particular product that’s getting some buzz, we buy it, try it, and let you know if we think it’s actually worth it. Not everything is going to be worth it!
Regardless of your age, we’ve all been there. That moment when you’re like, “When the hell did those lines get there?!” It happens. But it doesn’t mean that we have to like it. It also doesn’t mean there isn’t anything we can do about it.
Similar to brushing your teeth and showering, skincare (yes, even for guys) is a total must. It can be super confusing as there are so many products out there, but the folks from Disco have actually made it pretty easy.
I first saw their Disco Eye Stick in an ad on TikTok. So either the algorithm really knows me, or it’s the universe’s way of saying “It’s time to do something about your eyes, dummy.” Either way, I took it as a sign. They make it look insanely easy to use and something that takes, literally, 5 seconds to use. Plus, their video views on TikTok racked up almost 8 million views. I was all in.
In a nutshell, here’s what the folks at Disco say their Eye Stick is supposed to help with:
- Helps to fight dark circles under your eyes.
- Helps reduce the look of under eye bags and overall puffiness.
- Helps to brighten up your skin and tone.
- Helps to reduce fine lines and crows-feet.
But does it actually work? I’m not going to lie. When it comes to anti-aging I’m basically willing to set my face on fire if someone claimed it worked to reduce lines, wrinkles, and just make me look younger. So, for me, this was a no brainer to try. And not only were they named as a “best of” for eye creams by Men’s Journal, they also have a certified dermatologist, Dr. Eva Simmons, that works directly with them.
As far as me testing the Disco Eye Stick goes, here’s what my criteria was – just so we’re all on the same page.
- I purchased this myself and was not given this product in exchange for a review.
- I tried it daily for 1.5 months.
- The first half of that timeframe I used it once in the morning. The second half, I started using it in the morning and before bed.
- I did also use a daily moisturizer for my face as well (as always).
- I do have crows-feet and fine lines around my eyes (not so much with the dark circles).
Since they also sell their products on Amazon, I did read some of those reviews and some people were confused by how to use the rollerball and get the product to come out. Without passing judgement (ok fine, a little judgement), I was surprised to discover that mine was actually easy to use. You just shake it, pop off the cap, and then roll it under your eyes, on your crows-feet, etc. And, uh, that’s it. You can either let it just dry on its own or use your finger to lightly pat it around your eyes until it dries.
Even though I read that you should use it for one-month before expecting results, I was kind of expecting immediate results. I know. I’m the worst. I will say that it did feel good right off the bat.
The first few weeks I didn’t really notice a difference, which I found frustrating. But I kept the faith and stuck to it. About halfway through I did start to use it first thing in the morning and right before I went to bed. Before bed, I just let it dry on its own. Where I did definitely notice and feel a difference was when I was hungover. Too much to drink mixed with really crappy sleep = tired eyes, extreme puffiness, and overall drooping. This really did help reduce that puffiness and made me look less like death, for sure. It felt awesome too, like my eye area was given a zap of energy!
Once I rounded past one month I did start to notice my skin in that area a lot smoother, a bit brighter, and some of the lines did appear to be less deep. Slightly. Here are some pro’s and cons of my overall experience.
Let’s not forget about the cons:
Ok, so this is it. When all is said and done, is the Disco Repairing Eye Stick really worth it?
I’m a little surprised to say this but, yes, I do think it’s worth it and it does work. It’s not a complete miracle where everything disappears, but I have noticed a difference. And, because it’s so easy to use and takes no time at all, it makes it super simple to incorporate into your everyday life.
When it comes to puffiness (for me) this is where I think the real payoff happens. Tired? Hungover? Both? Disco is key. It’s almost like how you feel after you get out of the shower. Back to life! It does something similar for your eyes too.
I didn’t give it a “full green” on the rate-o-meter, but that’s only because I wished it had done more for my fine lines and wrinkles. I’ll keep at it though and if I have better results, I’ll update this review. Coincidently, I have added Disco to a few of our grooming guides: The best eye creams for guys and the best body wash for dry skin. Check those out if you’re interested.
