Today's post is about my new eye-cream. I personally have never used an eye cream before because honestly I just didn't think anything of them. I always thought; I use a moisturizer twice a day so why would I need an eye cream? However, recently when I am taking off my eye make-up (using a Target brand eye make-up remover, which I had to buy because they were out of the Neutrogena ones) I'm experiencing a bit of irritation/stinging around my eyes. The skin there feels sort of thin when touched. So this led me to thinking that maybe it is time that I start using an eye cream. I just couldn't figure out whether it was due to using this eye make-up remover or that skin surrounding my eye just needs special attention. I have been using this eye make-up remover for about a month now, and I'd say the irritation/burning started about couple of weeks ago. So I ended up getting this Avocado eye cream from Kiehl's. I have tested it in store and was sold within a few seconds. This cream is just amazing!!! Don't let it's tiny size fool you, it's packed with so much goodness.
Yes, I tried to capture moisture in the second square! :) I tried a bit on my hand, because really that's all you need, and it goes from this cream state to pure moisture in matter of seconds. When you pick it up, it feels and it is quite thick in consistency but on contact, it will get super light and moist. Two other things that I love about this eye cream are that it isn't stick at all and it doesn't get in your eyes. My skin feels so hydrated and soft after using this for hours. Since I started using this my eye area isn't getting irritated anymore while I am taking off my eye make-up, hopefully this cream has a contribution to my problem so at least I know the cure for it! Right now, I am using this twice a day, well more like once a day and once a night :) I think it really locks in moisture and still works after it's absorbed in your skin. I just love it!! If I had to pick something negative about it, it would probably be the packaging. Then again it may be just me since I am not really fond of this type of container because I have to dip my fingers in them, not cool or sanitary for that matter! Hopefully one day it will come in a bottle form with a pump! If you are searching for an eye-cream, you may want to check this out! It retails for $25.50 for 0.5 oz container. I think it will last me about 4-5 months or maybe more because I use a very small amount.
