Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

I bought this when I was shopping in Liberty in London with a friend. I've just finished up my Simple Age-Resisting Eye Cream and really wanted to try out something that was a little more high end. After doing a little bit of research on eye creams, I found that a lot of beauty bloggers were loving this eye treatment by Kiehls. I originally wanted something that was going to fight lines and aging as I feel that if I'm prone to any pre-aging wrinkles, it will be in that area. However the idea of intense moisture sucked me in so I had to buy it.

The first couple of times I used it I thought I was going to hate it and was really frightened that I'd just spent £20 on something I wasn't going to be able to get any use out of. However I've now settled in to how this product works and found that it's actually incredible at keeping the area under my eyes hydrated throughout the day. It makes my concealer so much more flawless and over all, I've grown to love it.

It initially looks quite scary when you open the pot. Not very often are you presented with a green cream that you plan to smear on your face, never mind around your eyes. But it is a creamy avocado treatment and therefore I did have a certain amount of expectation that it should be that colour so I went ahead to apply it anyway.

This is where my I first started to doubt that this was the right product for me. When I dabbed it under my eyes it immediately turned to a greasy texture that completely freaked me out. My face swiftly became uber shiny and no amount of dabbing with the ring finger solved the issue. My thoughts were that it was going to be creamy and sink in really quickly but this just wasn't the case. However I pushed forward and ended up just leaving it for a little while to see if the skin would absorb the product by itself. The shine seemed to go down dramatically so I went ahead to apply my makeup.

This is when I really realised that this product was a keeper. With my Simple Eye Gel I still got the slightly dry look when I applied any concealer underneath my eyes. It wasn't anything major and a stranger probably wouldn't even notice but too me it was obvious. However this time I applied my concealer and it still gave me amazing coverage but without any of the drying. It almost looked like I'd applied another layer of skin. It was due to the intense moisture in the eye cream that made my already holy grail products even more amazing. This is what really sold the eye treatment in my mind. From there on I was happy to keep applying this cream and trying not to fret through the greasy first stages as the pay out later was incredible. You barely need any product to hydrate your whole under-eye area so this product, although being the smaller of the two tubs sold, is going to last me forever.

So if you do decide to try this eye treatment, I would definitely be wary of the fact that you might freak out initially over the texture. But have no fear because this product is definitely worth the hype and completely worth the money in my eyes.
