If there has ever been a product review that has been a long time coming then it is this one. The Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado had been a product that I had wanted to try for a very long time. I know that when I first started blogging this was a product that was floating around yet the price had always put me off. I wasn't quite ready to drop the pennies back then, yet these days I'm not too worried about paying a little more, especially if it's backed up by great reviews over a long period of time.
It wasn't until I was watching a video by Lisa Eldridge early last year where she featured this that I finally decided to pick it up. First and foremost I wasn't actually aware that it comes in two sizes which of course has a reflection on the price. When I asked for this product at my local Kiehl's counter I was immediately given the full size which now in hindsight if I had been offered the smaller one I would have opted for that, especially seeing as I had never tried it before. The smaller tub of this costs £20 whereas the larger comes in at £33 therefore there's quite a price difference although when looking at the amount of product you get it is better value for money to buy the larger size.
The product itself is light yellow in colour, almost verging on green which is something that I quite like. Upon application this colour does not show up at all, in fact it immediately starts to melt into the skin creating a lovely texture to work with. Having tried a few eye creams in the past I would say that by far this is the thickest in texture yet this is something I really do like in an eye cream as I like to feel as though it is doing something for me. Despite it being a thick cream it does not feel heavy around my eyes at all which again is an added bonus.
I must admit that I do suffer from dehydration around my eyes quite a lot and whilst I don't think that this completely eradicates that I do feel that it helps improve things for longer. Where other products in the past have helped me in this area I don't feel as though they have given me the results that this has which makes this product a firm staple for me within my skincare routine. This product is something that I'm happy to use both morning and night where of an evening it is extremely satisfying to pop on once I've cleansed my face. I also find that for me it works great under my make up yet I do know that others find it a little too thick for day time use however do bear in mind my issue with dehydration.
Whilst here I will address the issue of dark circles as they are indeed an issue I suffer with as well as dehydration. This product as far as I understand is not marketed towards combating dark circles so I will not judge it in that way. I do think that it improves them to a very mild extent although it's nothing to write home about, although if I'm honest I think making myself drink more water and achieving a decent amount of hours of sleep at night would improve them far more than any cream on the market.
The non-migrating formula is enriched with avocado oil this is extremely moisturising oil and is a natural source of Amino Acids, Vitamins A, D and E. Shea Butter is also present which is renowned for its moisturising properties, there's also Beta-Carotene which is a new one to me, this is a natural antioxidant and is often found in carrots, hence the name.
