Review: Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment w Avocado

Aug 20, 2013
When people ask me what are my "must have" skincare products, for someone who doesn't appreciate expensive skincare products and find taking care of skin a hassle, my answer is always - sunscreen and eye cream.

Skin around our eye area is thinnest and most delicate so I won't suggest a normal facial cream to be used only for eyes. For people with dark eye circles, unfortunately, I think a lot of times, it's inherited and make-up or special treatment might help, but eye cream? I doubt so.

To me, an eye cream is essential and it does help with fine lines, pigmentation, dryness problems around the eyes. But always remember sunlight is the main cause of wrinkles so do apply sunblock around your eyes too! Prevention is always better than cure.

Anyway back to this Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, it's quite a famous product and after finishing my first bottle, here are some of my findings:
- the texture is quite thick, but it seems to stay on the surface of the skin upon application, it does not absorb immedately
- it hydrates my skin well enough, though at my age, hydration is not enough, what I really need is anti-aging, so I would say this is a product for younger skin around age 25 - 30
- for someone like me with an eye cream infatuation, it's pretty amazing that I've finished one entire bottle of this and that might have explained why this is one of the popular eye cream in the market, though I seriously have no clue why, because it really does nothing much on my eyes, but then, if I do not use it, maybe things will get worse even?

Will I repurchase this again? Nope, not at all, I am pretty sure I've used something nicer from Estee Lauder or Chanel, though my plan next is to trv Skin Signature Eye Cream from SKII, stay tuned for my review on that!
