Sometimes a classic is just what the doctor ordered – even in an eye cream. Kiehl’s Since 1851 launched Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, a rich preparation that gently moisturizes the delicate eye area, in 2002 and it quickly became an editor and customer favorite. The eye cream still remains a best-selling formula worldwide, known for its unique, concentrated texture and its burst of hydration upon application.
“Our team of chemists chose a water-in-oil emulsion for Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, as this texture provides longer-lasting, richer texture and bursts into water upon application,” states Dr. Geoffrey Genesky, Head Chemist, Kiehl’s Research and Innovation Labs.
Avocado, known for its antioxidants, essential fatty acids and Omega-3 oils, proved to be a perfect emollient to help restore the natural moisture barrier of the skin. See? It’s not just for guacamole. Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado also contains Shea Butter and Beta Carotene.
“The thinnest and most vulnerable skin on the face is the eyelid area, which extends from just beneath the brow to the upper cheek. Because of its delicate nature, it is prone to aging from squinting and rubbing, tends to collect fluid causing puffiness and is sensitive to heavier products,” said Dr. Sherry Hsiung, Kiehl’s Consulting Dermatologist. “For these reasons, a specifically formulated eye cream is essential to prevent and treat the signs of aging for a more bright, youthful appearance.”
Facial moisturizers and other anti-aging products are too potent and not formulated for the delicate eye area due to the lack of natural oil glands and moisture in the eye area. The number one mistake we tend to make with with eye creams is applying too much – thinking more is better. Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado gives a an immediate and lasting burst of hydration to the eye area. One thing that tends to annoy me with eye cream is that it can migrate into your eyes and what I love about this formulation is that it is so concentrated and thick, it doesn’t budge. I even use it under my eye makeup. It’s seriously the bomb.
