Hey babes, how have you been? Been busy with spring cleaning and getting new clothes and goodies for the fast-approaching lunar new year? To look great for the day, don’t forget to get early nights and to moisturize your eye area religiously. The delicate eye area is often the first area to show sign of wrinkles and early prevention can make you look years younger. If you have not been taking care of your eye area, why not start pampering yourself with an eye cream?
Talking about eye cream, I was deeply fascinated with Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado.
After a few swipes, this thing magically transformed from a thick and rich cream into a water-like consistency. Kiehl’s called this a “quick burst release of hydration”. When the application is complete, what’s left behind is a hydrating layer that absorbs fast and keeps the eye area adequately moisturized.
This is the first product I’ve used that actually changes its texture during application and it was well….so much fun! It stands out from the many eye cream standing on my vanity and I would instinctively reach out for it every time.
What’s Good about Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado?
1) “Quick Burst Release” was Fun
Because it has a unique texture-changing feature, I found myself looking forward to applying Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado everyday. You should try it out at Kiehl’s counter the next time you go shopping.
2) Hydrating, yet not too Rich
If your eye area is dry, this is a godsend.
Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado gives great hydration without being too rich. My eye area was plumped up after application and my makeup sits really well on it.
For the rich cream it appears to be, it was great that I did not get any milia from it.
3) Lasts you “Forever”
The cream is so thick you only need a tiny dab on one finger (no need to scoop) for it to work its magic. And yes, that tiny dab can pick up enough cream to cover a large surface area. This pot of avocado cream can seriously last you for quite a long while.
1) Hygiene Issue
Comes in a 14g tiny white pot, this means you have to dip your finger into it during every application.
Some may not like it as this inadvertently introduces impurities into the pot. That said, most beauty products that come in a tub or pot should be able to last well since preservatives are included. So long you don’t dip dirty stuff into it…..use a clean finger, yah?
2) Not Cheap
At $50 a tub, this is not cheap. But if you compare it with premium counter brands such as Lancome and Shiseido, Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado is quite reasonably-priced.
In Singapore, Kiehl’s is a brand that’s often found alongside other premium brands. So that probably makes the price more acceptable though it’ll be great and accessible to more if the price is less marked-up. In US, this only sells for USD28.50.
If you have dry skin around your eyes or are generally looking for a hydrating eye cream that’s fun to use, Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado is worth a try.
It contains avocado oil, beta carotene and shea butter which can restore the natural moisture and suppleness of the skin. Although it’s known to be great for those with dry skin around the eyes, I have personally benefited well from it with my normal-oily combination skin. It absorbs well and never felt too rich on my skin. I’m guessing that this eye cream can be great for all skin types.
