Kiehl’s is one of my favorite companies. They use natural ingredients to deliver on exceptional products. While they can be pricy at times, at least you know you’re paying for quality.
I was so excited to finally treat myself to Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado ($47). I’ve been lusting over this product for months, dreaming of the day when the skin around my eyes is as soft and hydrated as the rest of my face.
Well, that day is finally here. Insert the praising hands emoji with a few hearts-for-eyes.
This eye cream is the stuff of dreams- thick and creamy and ultra-hydrating. When you apply it, use your ring finger and gently pat it into the skin surrounding your eye (AKA along your orbital bone). Be careful not to pull or tug on the delicate skin. I like to put it on at least 15 minutes before going to bed so it has enough time to set in.
Other eye creams have migrated into my eyes while I’m trying to fall asleep, causing me to tear up and rub the delicate area roughly. This stuff stays put exactly where you apply it, making it perfect for people like me who toss and turn all night long.
If you’re worried about wrinkles, this probably won’t be your go-to product. It makes no de-aging claims and works primarily on keeping your eye area moisturized and healthy. While it did cut down on the bags I get beneath my eyes when I don’t sleep enough, I haven’t really noticed any skin tightening.
Since this treatment is so thick and my skin often gets greasy after moisturizing, I only use it at night and usually opt for something a little lighter during the day. It’s versatile enough that you can use it whenever you want, though, even under your makeup.
And that price tag that makes you hesitate? It’s for the .95 fl oz jar which is enough to last you months. If you want to test it out first before agreeing to that kind of commitment, there’s a smaller version that’s a little easier on the wallet, but trust me- it’s worth the money!
