Beauty Chat: Avocado Eye Cream

kiehl's avocado eye cream creamy eye treatment

I know we chatted a whole lot of beauty yesterday (Don’t forget to shop Sephora’s Beauty Insider promotion — 20% off with code VIB20!), but I wanted to share my latest eye cream obsession. Sephora doesn’t carry Kiehl’s, but I purchase it at Nordstrom, which is another one of my favorite retailers for beauty and skincare!

I’ve been using Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado for the last month or so and I’m obsessed! Keeping my undereye area hydrated is super important to me for quite a few reasons — You look so much more awake when your skin is hydrated, including that delicate undereye area. I tend to not sleep as much as I should so I’m always looking for look-more-awake tips and tricks! I’m also right around that age where wrinkles are going to start rolling in pretty soon… Gotta fend them off, you know?

It’s seriously the thickest, most hydrating eye cream I’ve ever used. Don’t let the thickness scare you away, I use it both morning and night. It works really well as a ‘primer’ of sorts before I apply my undereye concealer. I tend to have sensitive skin around my eyes (not really the rest of my face) and it’s never been irritating at all!

My one concern is that it doesn’t have any anti-aging properties to it, it’s just hydrates and hydrates well. But I’m thinking of finding another eye cream and rotating between the two. But it’s hard because I never want to not use this one!

You’ll notice that it doesn’t mix well with water… Your skin and fingers need to be completely dry before applying. I don’t really know how to explain it, but you’ll know exactly what I mean if your hands are moist.

It’s not drugstore pricing by any means, but it’s really reasonable compared to a lot of other eye creams out there. Plus, there’s a ton of gifts with purchase going on right now!

It’s available in two different sizes, jumbo (.95oz) and standard (.5oz).

Have you tried it? And if so, what did you think? If not, what is your favorite eye cream? I’m always looking for new ones to try!

FYI: This is in no way a sponsored post. I bought the smaller size of the eye cream and will definitely be purchasing the jumbo jar when this one runs out!

    Love this eye cream but oh my goodness when any kind of moisture gets near it… ahh!!! It drives me crazy but it is a quality eye cream so I deal with it. After I wash my face I usually do something else before applying it (brush my teeth, apply dry shampoo, etc) so that my eye area has time to dry off.. Otherwise it is a sticky mess!

    Sounds amazing! Avocados are so good for many things. I never tried kiehls products. I always hear great things about them.

    I’ve been using the Algenist
    Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Eye Cream for the last few months and love it! It feels incredibly moisturizing and non-greasy. I can only hope the anti-aging is actually working. Also, I picked up the Origins charcoal mask you were using (maybe on Snapchat? lol) and I’m obsessed. My skin feels so good after using it.

    I’ve been using it for at least a year and love it. Know what you mean about needing your face and hands to be dry otherwise it’s almost slippery or something!
