Kiehls eye treatment with avocado

In my personal and extremely humble opinion, one of the skin care products you should start using as early as possible is an eye cream. If just one night of not having had enough sleep leaves noticeable dark rings under the eyes - imagine what years of a hectic lifestyle, the weather and just having a good old laugh could do. Daily moisturisers and serums are wonderful in all their glory, but since the skin under the eyes is thinner and doesn't have any oil glands to help keep the area supple, it's more sensitive and as it dehydrates it's easier for fine lines and wrinkles to appear. That's why it's great to use eye creams, which usually are quite rich and creamy - exactly what the under eye area needs. Since life is all about having a good time and making the most of every hour of every day, I'm always on the hunt for a good eye cream that will help keeping those nasty wrinkles at bay as long as possible, and my latest love is the famous Creamy Eye Treatment from Kiehls (£33). 
I've mentioned before that I love a cream that feels as if it's actually doing something on the skin and this cream is amazing. The plastic packaging is very unassuming and has a quaint old fashioned apothecary feel to it with the description on the front. It has a very subtle, fresh and clean scent and the the vanilla colored formula is wonderfully rich, heavy and indulgent. It contains avocado oil, beta-carotene and shea butter which help to restore natural moisture and suppleness, protect the skin against sun, pollution and other external factors and they improve the look and feel of dry skin. I use a tiny tiny bit of this every morning and evening before putting on my moisturiser and it feels so hydrating and nourishing on the skin. Despite containing such oily ingredients, you won't feel any oiliness on the skin - the cream absorbs quickly leaving no tackiness or greasiness at all, and you can apply under eye makeup straight away.

I make up my mind about a skin cream depending on how my skin feels mid afternoon. If my skin is as hydrated as it was after my morning routine, we're on to a winner and for eye creams I also check for crepeness that can come after under eye concealers, powder etc. When I've used this cream the eye area feels protected, nourished, bright and soft - and this lasts even after having cleansed my face in the evening. I've also used this as a masque for the eye area, applying a slightly thicker layer of it (you still only need very little of it) and then let it absorb for the next 15 mins, wiping away any excess. This cream is so lovely to use and I couldn't wish for a better protector for the eye area to see me through the winter.

  1. This sounds lovely, I actually haven't tried anything by Kiehls yet but it's on my list. I don't use eye creams much as I haven't found anything that really does much but maybe I've just been using the wrong ones

  3. Sounds good. I just tried a sample of their Midnight Recovery Oil, so going to try it a couple more times and see my thoughts.
    This sounds like the next thing to try definitely!

  6. This might be my next eye cream! I keep hearing good things about it and I love how it's moderately priced-- I'm just weary of the smell because I tend to be sensitive to scents! Is it very strong or just mild?

    1. It's very VERY faint and some even say that there's no smell at all, so I don't think you would find it intrusive or overpowering. Xx
