Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

If I am not wrong, I have only started to use eye creams religiously over the past 1 1/2 years. The previous occasional 1-2 times 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)

I have been experiencing quite dry skin around my eyes lately ...to the point that the dry skin causes constant irritation = very frequent rubbing = frictional darkness...well, that's my assumption. 
So I was on a pursuit to find a richer eye cream and I finally picked up the Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment.

"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. 

The forumla is thick, creamy and rich 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 (this helps spread the product better, otherwise it is difficult to apply this) 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 quite well. I can tell a difference in the way my eye area looks the morning after.

Price : 2500 INR for 14g

If you are on the lookout for a rich super hydrating eye cream & do not mind the price tag then you can look into this one. 
I like 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 a really good rich eye cream. 
  3. Two dots is all you need per application - this small tub will last you a long long time

If you have dryness around the eyes, you will probably enjoy this one! Yes, it is expensive, which is what took me so long to get it as well. 
Do I plan to use it forever? No, I don't need it my entire life. But I will definitely use it whenever my eye area is getting very dry and flaky and needs something richer. 

Next time you are crossing a Kiehl's counter, go ahead and try it! You can also usually ask for a sample of the product.

UPDATE : If you eye area is prone to milia then this might not be the best for you because it is quite rich.
