Hello my loves! Today’s review is all about a cult classic from Kiehl’s: their creamy eye treatment with avocado.
I have heard about this skincare product a million times before I finally decided to buy it. For many celebrities it is a must have, and it is without a doubt one of the Kiehl’s bestsellers. The main ingredient is natural avocado oil, and it also contains Shea butter and Beta-Carotene.
Now let’s learn something about the ingredients.
Avocado Oil s an excellent source of over twenty vitamins and minerals (including B, C, E and K), folic acid, magnesium, and potassium. So, it is rich, fatty-acid emollient known to be the most moisturizing of any fruit oil.
It acts as a humectant – it draws water into the skin and plump it up, giving it a more youthful appearance and minimizing the appearance of fine lines.
A lot of plants contains this naturally-derived antioxidant and one of the famous ones are carrots, sweet potato and Cantaloupe Melon. It is actually a pigment from which the organism creates Vitamin A – most important for health and skin beauty.
Shea butter is made from the nut of the African Shea tree. It contains a rich amount of fatty acid which is crucial to rejuvenating and moisturizing the skin. It provides all the essential vitamins (rich in E & F vitamin) needed to make skin feel and look smoother. It also protects the skin from sun, wind and it helps to heal wounds faster. It stimulates cellular activity while fighting the effects of aging.
Now, let’s talk about the creme.
As all the Kiehls’s products, this one also reminds me of an old school pharmacy packaging. Simple design, little white jar with green lettering (this shade is so similar to the color of an avocado). This eye cream comes in 2 sizes: 14ml (29 $) and 28 ml (48 $). I have been using 14 ml jar almost every day since I bought it back in August (haul blog post), and there is still plenty left.
It has a thick formula, but it does absorb into the skin very well. The cream has a yellow-light greenish color. This is one of the creamiest and moisturizing skincare products for the eye/under eye area that I have ever tried. It is especially suitable for when the weather is colder, but I have personally used it also during the hot and humid days, and I loved it the same.
This eye cream is not the type of creams that treats your dark circles, its main purpose is to hydrate and moisturize.
How to use:
Take a small amount the product on your finger and gently tap the cream around the eye area. Avoid pulling the skin. This product can be used both day or night.
This is by far my favorite eye cream that I have ever tried. The end 🙂
Have you tried this eye cream? How did you like it?
