Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

When it comes to eye creams, I jumped on the wagon a lot later than the recommended age which came with its downside - I have quite dry skin around my eyes...to the point that my inner corners are way darker (dry skin= constant irritation = very frequent rubbing = frictional darkness...well, that's my assumption) and some fine lines. Oh! how I wish I had started eye care earlier!
If I am not wrong, I have only started to use eye creams religiously over the past 1 1/2 years. The previous occasional once a week does not really count.

Fast forward now, I WILL apply an eye cream every morning and night. Without fail (except for a rare late night, when I have been found guilty of skipping it only to regret it next morning). Mornings see me using a lighter eye cream; a heavier one in the night. It was on a pursuit to find a good night eye cream that I finally picked up the Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment. The price tag stopped me from getting this one for a long time!. But, it is famous since years...there has to be reason right? I had to find out!

Before I get into the details, I would just start off by saying that this is without a doubt one of the best eye creams I have ever used! (there, if you are in a rush, the review is over, you can get back to work :D).

"This creamy preparation with Avocado Oil gently moisturizes the delicate skin of the eye area. Its unique water-in-oil molecule instantly refreshes with a burst of hydration. The unique, concentrated texture will not migrate into eyes. Ophthalmologist-Tested. Dermatologist-Tested."

True to its claims, the eye cream does EXACTLY that. It sure does look thick and creamy in the pot, but it is way richer that what it looks like. 
The forumla is thick, creamy and rich (duh) with a slight bit of tackiness to it - not in an eww way, more like in a satisfying way
The way to apply it is - take a bit of the product, rub it between your ring fingers (to warm up and help spread the product better, otherwise it is difficult to get this one to spread) and tap-tap-tap under your eyes (I go over my upper lids too)

It does not have anti aging effects and neither does it claim to do so. 
What the Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment does is hydrate and moisturize the under eye area (so so well!). For me it plumps up the skin, which gets rid of the fine lines and also helps with the darkness as well - which in my situation is mostly caused by dryness. I can tell a huge difference in the way my eye area looks the morning after. 
Apart from that, this one works really well under concealers too! Bonus!

Price : 2500 INR for 14g

If you are on the lookout for a new eye cream, and can splurge a bit, I would highly recommend this one. I love it for 3 simple things -

  1. It does not make tall claims to perform miracles. It is simple and effective and does what it says.
  2. It is one of the best hydrating eye creams ever.
  3. Two dots is all you need per application - this small tub will last you a long long time (I am looking at a year perhaps). 


I have begun to love this so much that I look forward to applying it every night. If you have dryness around the eyes, you are going to love this one! Yes, it is expensive, which is what took me so long to get it as well, but now that I have tried it, I know I will always have this in my stash. 
Next time you are crossing a Kiehl's counter, go ahead and try it!
