Kiehls Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment Review
Kiehls Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment is one of the few beauty products out there that is absolutely worth the hype. Seemingly every Youtuber and beauty blogger out there has raved about this over the past couple of years, and after picking it up with skepticism and using it on and off for the past six months or so, I can tell you – it’s worth it.
Kiehls Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment is formulated with avocado oil to nourish and hydrate the eye area. Kiehls says the cream is made with “highly effective natural ingredients”, which you should take with a grain of salt because Kiehls is not an all-natural or organic brand, so the cream certainly contains ingredients that are not all-natural. However, the cream itself is an incredibly rich and yes, creamy treatment – it’s a light green that’s quite close to the actual color of avocados, which you would think would be a turnoff, but when you apply it, and see how eagerly your skin gulps it up and how lightly the thick cream absorbs into your skin, you’ll cease to care at all about color.
Honestly, the texture of this is closest to butter, which I love – thick, but immensely soft, and melts (you can tell it has oil in it) into the skin as soon as you dab it on your eye area.
All naturally-produced oils are good for the skin, and that includes avocado oil, which has the same benefits as avocados – they deliver nutrients to the skin and also moisturize. The treatment is also the most hydrating eye cream I’ve tried so far, genuinely relieving any kind of dryness (and I have very dry skin), and seems to slightly decrease dark circles and brighten as well. I haven’t noticed any particular line-reducing effect, but I wasn’t expecting that because only vitamin C or laser treatments can do that. It has a very slight, pleasant scent, and is a luxurious product to use. Best of all, to justify the ridiculous price point, and because it’s so rich, a little goes a long, long way – I’ve been using this on and off for 6 months and have just now hit near the bottom of the pan.
Skin Type Recommendations:
I would recommend this for all skin types. The nourishment and hydration is what the undereye area needs, and it’s not an irritating or highly-powerful product that might cause a reaction, so should be safe for even sensitive skin.
You can buy this at Sephora, but don’t be silly – no eye cream is worth $48. Instead, look for it on eBay or the private-seller network of your country’s choice – that’s where I bought it and it’s generally easy to find an unopened bottle for half or two-thirds of the Sephora price.
