Kiehls Creamy Eye Treatment.

I thought I'd introduce you guys to a little product that I have been using almost religiously ever since I bought it two weeks ago. I'm surprised I hadn't heard of this until recently as its supposedly a real cult product in the beauty blogging world. I actually only saw this a couple of weeks ago on the beautiful Zoella's recent favorites video, and I was immediately intrigued. Like me Zoella seems to suffer from dehydrated under eye skin and dark circles, and since she loved this so much I thought I would give it a try. 

As someone with dark circles I've grown slightly tedious of the many products that claim to 'reduce the appearance of under eye circles' or 'brighten' the area. While some of them worked for me initially they were either too pricey or didn't work well enough for me to continue spending my money on them. I do have a few budget eye creams, which I continue to use every day; and they are great for the price, but every now and then I feel like I need to indulge in something a little more pricey, especially when it comes to skincare. Your skin is the biggest organ in your body and you will only ever have one set of skin, so you might as well look after it! 

Kiehls Creamy Eye Treatment contains avocado oil, which I do believe gives the treatment it's gorgeous creamy texture; and (in case you were wondering) is what makes it green in colour. I've used actual avocado as a face mask before so I know how refreshing it can be, which is definitely the case with this eye treatment. I just had to tap the tiniest amount around my under eye area, and let me tell you, a little certainly goes along way with this product. Because of how thick and creamy it is I prefer to use this as a night treatment as it really does take a while to sink into the skin, but once it does it leaves my under eye skin gloriously smooth and hydrated. Despite having only been using this for a short period of time signs of improvement are already beginning to show. For one, my concealer doesn't crease half as much as it used to and I can now wear lighter coverage brightening products instead of the heavy duty concealers I had opted for before. 

I'd also like to mention that unlike the other beauty counters, which at times can be intimidating and scary places to go on your own, the Kiehls staff where all so lovely and really seemed as though they actually wanted to help me! The lady even asked me if I wanted to sit  down for a consultation, but as I was working I didn't have enough time so she gave me a couple of samples before I even purchased anything. She was so knowledgeable about the products and the Kiehls brand. It was a genuinely lovely experience and if anyone is looking for some high quality skin care or a skin consultation I'd highly recommend a visit! 

To summarize, this cream is amazing if you want smoother, hydrated under eye skin, and need a little help minimizing those dark circles. I've been really impressed by this product, and by Kiehls in general, and although this is a little pricey (around the £23 mark I think) you only need a very small amount so it is most likely going to last you a long time. 

Have any of you ever used Kiehls products? What are your thoughts on them, and did they work? 


  1. This sounds amazing! x

  2. I once tried the calendula toner, and a face wash and they were both lovely, I've heard a lot about this I think it'd make a lovely eye cream for night time use for something a little more moisturising I guess x

    1. Yeah it's so lovely to put on at night and I wake up and my under eyes feel amazing :) xxxxx
