Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado Review

When I visited Kiehls for a blogging event we were shown a lot of different products, I walked away with a generous bag of samples but there was a couple of products that we were shown that I couldn’t leave behind one of which was the Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado.

The 3 main ingredients featured in the eye cream are Avocado Oil which is a natural source for amino acids and Vitamins A, D and E- which helps retain and add mositure to the skin. Beta Carotene which is predominately found within carrots and other red and orange vegetables known to help protect skin from damaged cause by the sun. Lastly Shea Butter which as pretty much everyone knows is generally great for your skin helping to reduce visible signs of wrinkles to adding moisture.

Ooh Look At That Whip!

The reason I wanted to take a pot of this home was the texture, I’d not come across a product that was similar to it before and I found it oddly mesmerising. I dab one finger into the tub, picking up a small amount of product that’s enough to do both eyes. The way we were instructed to best apply this (which it doesn’t tell you on the tub), is to rub your finger with the matching finger on the opposite hand. The natural fattiness of the Avocado breaks down and the consistency becomes thin and watery and glides easily under the eye. Occasionally when I’ve not really been thinking about what I’m doing I’ll go straight from dabbing my finger to my face, and the product is kind of sticky if you skip this step and becomes much more difficult to work in. So I would 100% recommend this.

I’ve been using this for about 2 months now most mornings and some evenings and I’ve barely scraped the surface of this tub. Whilst this product isn’t cheap at £20 for 14g (you can also buy a double sized 28g pot for £33.50)  – it will last me a long long time. Another tip they gave us in store, and it’s one that I’ve yet to try, but it’s supposedly a great handbag product for refreshing your under-eye concealer midway through the day. One thing I can recommend it for is that any little leftovers that are left I’ve been rubbing into my stubborn dry hangnails and they have improved ten-fold. Whilst i don’t have a dry under eye area, because of this I can imagine that this would be fantastic on drier skins too, I have however noticed a difference in the texture under my eyes, I don’t know how to describe it, but I’d have very very small raised dots all over the under-eye area, and whilst they haven’t gone they’ve certainly reduced. I can only hope that it’s helping keep any eye wrinkles away at the same time now i’ve started noticing very fine lines starting to creep in.

If you’re looking for a new eye cream, or like exploring things with different textures (sounds weird but texture is something that can make or break food for me, and I’m picky about it in skincare too!) then I would thoroughly recommend this cult favourite from Kiehl’s. It’s a bloggers favourite that I’ve heard a lot about for many years but never planned to pick up for myself, so I’m glad I got the opportunity to see it in action at an event. I also have the Midnight Recovery Eye Cream from Kiehls which I’m still reviewing it’s fallen by the wayside for a few weeks as we’re a bit upside down in our house due to our bed breaking after only 6 months due to a faulty part … my normal bedside routine has been neglected thanks to sleeping in the spare room!

What are your favourite eye creams?

      1. I know its crazy! I know I kept thinking since the bigger one is better value for money it would be better but the way the smaller tub lasts I agree I would be using that one for years haha!

    1. Erm, I’m not sure I was invited – they just invited a handful of local bloggers to the store one Sunday Evening after the store closed. They were very welcoming at Nottingham, and I’m sure if you’re local store is the same they’ll be more than happy to do give you personal recommendations based on you (you can also book in for a skincare consultation for free too for recommendations and testing products on your skin on a one to one basis 🙂 )

    1. Thanks Jessie, It depends sometimes I’m actually invited, but most of them are midweek in London when I’m at work so often have to miss out! But Joining facebook/twitter groups for your local area, for example I’m in the East Midlands one and someone usually posts when they spot one come up so it keeps everyone in the loop!

  3. This one is a bit too heavy for me and I find it tends to give me millia under my eyes. I got a sample of it to try, thankfully. But the Kiehl’s eye cream that I LOVE is their Midnight Recovery one. It’s much more lightweight than this one and I actually use it for daytime! For a richer eye cream, I like the Shiseido one – that one has lasted me YEARS.

  4. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! ❤ Great review and totally agree with you about the application process…although it feels so good that it only took me 2 months to use up my last pot as I can’t stop putting it on!!! 😂
