Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment Review
If you are like me, at this time of the year, your skin starts crying out for moisture. It’s almost as if once the first few days of colder weather appear, so does the incessant need to apply moisturizer. It is our skin’s way of firstly, going into shock, and secondly preparing itself for Winter. So, on that note, I only feel it fitting to review a moisturizing product, as I sit here with a bottle of hand cream and lip chap at the ready! However, this review is not about your common moisturizer, this is about a moisturizer for your eyelids! The Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment.
Usually neglected in our slathering on of moisture cream, our eyelids (the most delicate skin on our body) are often overlooked and this can lead to not only dry eyes in general but also winkles! The problem is that finding an eye cream that is just for moisturizing is extremely difficult as almost ALL eye creams contain some sort of anti-aging property or ingredients to de-puff, lighten dark circles or plump up fine lines. Now, these components are useful indeed but can sometimes be a harsh and although they may make our eyes look brighter and more youthful they may not place as much focus on moisture. Furthermore, most if not all specifically instruct the user to apply the cream to the “eye area” (under the eye, close to the temples, and on the brow bone) and not to the eyelids themselves.
Enter the Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment. A cream for your whole eye area AND for the eyelids themselves (although they don’t specifically say) packed with nothing but pure moisture! It doesn’t get more hydrating than this! For those of you who are unfamiliar with Kiehl’s, make a point to get familiar because they have been producing quality natural skincare for over 150 years! Their products consistently make the industry’s Top 10 lists and rightfully so as they are leaders in the field of offering quality natural ingredients and the science to make them highly effective. And the Creamy Eye Treatment is one such product!
Utilizing pure Avocado Oil, this eye cream hydrates like no other and is extremely gentle on skin, even those with severe sensitivities. Not only is Avocado moisturizing but it also includes Amino Acid proteins, Vitamins A, D, and E and Potassium that not only act as anti-oxidants but also help to restore the natural moisture barrier of the skin. Also with the Avocado Oil is another anti-oxidant, Beta-Carotene and Shea Butter to help prevent further dehydration. And that’s about it! No weird gimmicks, no strange chemical names you can’t pronounce, just the goodness that nature provides us!
The best part about this cream, is not only does it hydrate my delicate and super sensitive eye area, but it doesn’t migrate into the eyes. Designed with a special formulation to prevent migration, this eye cream is Ophthalmologist and Dermatologist-Tested. So you will never get the uncomfortable stinging or watery eyes like you do when using some other eye creams.
Lastly, due to it’s supreme gentleness and natural moisturizing ingredients, this eye cream can double as an amazing lip moisturizer! And because of it’s use of Avocado Oils, it gives your eyelids and/or lips a healthy sheen.
Coming from someone who has spent many years trying to find such a moisturizer for my dry sensitive eyes, the Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment is literally a life saver. I can not begin to count the number of times, like these past few days, where my skin AND eyelids were tight with dryness and nothing would quench my parched skin but my Kiehl’s Eye Cream! I truly believe that at some points, when my skin was so reactive everything I put on it seemed to burn, this Kiehl’s cream was the only thing I could use around my eye area.
It soothes, it moisturizes, and protects the skin from external aggressors. Not only does it protect against pollutants, but also provides a barrier to harsh conditions like cold weather and strong winds. This makes it a MUST HAVE product for those who live in cold climates or those who enjoy outdoor Winter activities.
Even if you don’t live in a cold climate, this eye cream is probably the BEST eye moisturizer on the market and should be a product in everyone’s beauty arsenal.
The Perfume Expert Rating
Summary: This is hydration at its best! Pure moisture for your eyelids and whole eye area! It soothes, it moisturizes, and protects the skin from external aggressors. It is super gentle and safe for even the most sensitive eyes and it DOES NOT migrate into the eyes, which makes it a one-of-a-kind eye moisturizer that gives nothing more than perfect hydration. Another pro is, although a bit pricey, a little jar of it will last you a whole year!
