Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

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.

Have you tried the Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado?

  3. I've been wanting to try this for ages. I've been a little dry around the eyes so something rich like this sounds like it'd be really satisfying to use.

  7. I love the sound of this eye cream, it sounds dreamy. Love toyr photography as well.
    I seem to have really bad luck with Kiehl's skincare and allergic reactions busomething tells me I would be okay with the eye cream I'll have to see if any of the ingredients are similar to products I have already tried! :) xx

  8. This eye cream sounds and looks amazing! I've never tried any of Kiehl's skincare before, but this sounds right up my alley. I may have to give it a try and pick up the smaller tub!

  9. I have the same problem with dehydration around my eyes and massive dark circles. I haven't found anything so far which is able to get rid of them so I may have to give this a try!

  12. I did enjoy using this when I needed it over the winter but I've put it away for now as I don't feel that I need it this time of the year. I love that it's not too heavy yet it does the job and there is so much product in the tub that it is so worth the money! xx

  13. I just sampled this on my hand in store today and the texture was so lovely. I've been really into Kiehl's skincare lately, but I'm still on the fence about this one v. the Antipodes kiwi seed oil eye cream...!

  14. It is such a popular product but I can't quite commit to the jar packaging myself x

  15. The price tag still puts me off, though it's been on my wishlist for a good 18 months now! Though I am fairly sure I'm one positive review away from handing over all my money. Knowing it really helps with your dehydration is just another plus point amongst the many others x

  16. I repurchased this today; it's the most amazing eye cream. It really helps my under eye circles and keeps my dry eyes hydrated! :)

  17. I have this eye cream and at first found the texture really odd. But it leaves my under eye area really soft and hydrated.

  19. I haven't tried anything from Kiehls before, I really love the Benefit Eye Cream as it really helps with dark circles x

  20. This sounds so gorgeous, I really think I'm going to have to give it a try at some point as, like you, I do get dehydrated around my eye area and I'm a bit concerned that that's where fine lines are going to start creeping in! My main concern would be that it's in a jar - I'm much more of a tube kind of girl for products like this!!

  21. I have actually just bought this but haven't made a start on it yet. I occasionally suffer with really dry flaky skin on my eye lids and am never sure what to use, or if I should use anything at all on my eye lids. I attended an event at Selfridges in Birmingham the last time I did suffer from it and the lady from the Kiehl's stand applied a little of this for me and the following day the dry skin had completely cleared up x

  22. I really like hair and skincare with avocado. I'd love to try this x

  23. I absolutely love it Emily! It is not a miracle worker but it is so far the best eye cream I have tried to date.

    ReplyDelete
  24. If you can grab yourself a little sample then it is well worth a try.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yes I honestly think this is something you may really like, it works really well for me. Like I said it's not a miracle worker but so far it is the best I have tried.

    ReplyDelete
  26. If you do please let me know how you get on with it, I'd love to hear your thoughts Jodie.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh no, that is such a shame!! It doesn't improve dark circles much but it really does help with hydrating the area which is something I really do struggle with, I need to repurchase it actually as I have about a weeks worth left.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yes it isn't purse friendly really, having said that I think this was worth the money as it lasted me ages!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh that is a shame Heather. I personally have only tried this and their MRC which I also really do like.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thank you Rinica. Yes definitely have a look at the ingredients, it's better to be safe than sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'll be re-purchasing this soon Lucy and I'll be picking up the smaller size too, I just can't get through it quickly enough within the time frame it should be used within.

    ReplyDelete
  32. It's worth a try Jordan although I don't think it really helps with dark circles, it's definitely good for hydration though.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I would go as far to say that in all of the products I have tried this has to be in my top five, it really does work well for me. I hope if you do try it out that you like it just as much.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yes I'm a huge fan of that myself Sophie.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thank you! I'm glad that you like it too.

    ReplyDelete
  36. It really is great. I use it both morning and night and find that it really does help.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I feel like I need it all of the time, I get so dehydrated around my eye area. I'm really trying to increase my water intake to try and improve things.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh now I would love to hear your thoughts on that one Natalie, I have never tried it myself.

    ReplyDelete
  39. No I know what you mean there, I wish it was in a tube or something. I think the only way you can combat that is to make sure your hands are clean and to use a different finger for each application, luckily I'm the only one that uses it which makes things easier.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Mine too Rachel, it really is lovely isn't it.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I really do think it is a great little product. There's no way I would recommend it if I didn't think it was, I'm going back to buy it again as I will miss it too much, although I'll be buying the smaller pot next time around.

    ReplyDelete
  42. It's fantastic for dehydration isn't it Lissy.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Yes the texture is strange isn't it, it is a cream at first which almost seems to melt when applied.

    ReplyDelete
  44. This one is all kinds of awesome Julie, I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh yes, I'm aware of that one and have read a few reviews of it. I recently purchased the First Aid Beauty Eye Remedy (something like that anyway) and I'm SO impressed with how it seems to improve dark circles instantly, I'm yet to see how it works over a long period of time though as I'm just finishing off this eye cream for now.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Yes that is my concern too Jess, I'm not getting any younger haha! Yup the jar thing was a gripe of mine at first too, you'd expect it to be in a tube of some sort wouldn't you. I really do like it though so find myself just having to overlook that one factor.

    ReplyDelete
  47. That's great news Becky! I have to say this is one of the first 'higher end' products that I'll be repurchasing. I try so many out that I rarely get to re-buy something as I know somewhere I have something else that needs using up yet with this I know I will be re-purchasing it as soon as I can/need to.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Avocado can be used in so many things can't it, I'd love to try some other skincare products with it in too.
