Hi all! Today's post will feature Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Eye. This is my favorite eye cream, and has been in my skincare routine for quite some time now. As many of you know, I am a huge Kiehl's fan. Pretty much all my regular skincare is from this brand. I'm really happy with how my skin has changed since using this line, and I wanted to pass along a good eye cream recommendation to you all!
What do I want in an eye cream? I think this is the first thing to quickly mention. The eye area is the first spot to show signs of aging. I wanted to find something that could be preventive but still correcting at the same time. I'm really picky with eye creams because most burn or make my eyes water terribly. I also wanted an eye cream to be creamy but not thick. It also has to be something I can blend in easy but isn't greasy. Midnight Recovery meets ALL of these requirements!
My review...This is my favorite eye cream for the above mentioned reasons. This isn't a dealbreaker for me (unless it's too strong) but this eye cream has a herbal scent to it. It's a very "essential oils" smell if you are familiar with that. I really like it and it doesn't bother my eyes at all! I think it actually soothes them. One of the biggest reasons I love this product is because it actually works! I have definitely noticed the skin around/under my eyes is softer, smoother and the lines I did start to develop are diminishing. Of course I didn't have deep or prominent eye area wrinkles, but I can honestly say I have seen a considerable difference. I can't say this for any other eye creams I have used.
Is it for you? I really think all ages would like this and could benefit from it. I'm almost 27 and I am finding that by using eye cream (and other skincare) that my facial skin looks healthy and is staying youthful. More mature skin could benefit from this as well. It's a nice alternative to the harsh or really strong chemical eye products on the market. Midnight Recovery is also a plus because it's hydrating and doesn't sit on the skin...it soaks in. A lot of anti aging eye creams on the market are really thick!
Ingredients & More Information...
Overall, I highly recommend giving Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Eye Cream a look. It's $36 for .05fl oz. It's not cheap, but it honestly lasts a long time. The really tiny sample I had before this lasted me a least a month. Remember, you are only doing this in the eye area not the whole face so you aren't using nearly as much. If you are interested I would head to a Kiehl's store (or I know you can find Kiehl's at department stores like Nordstrom's) and ask for a sample. Kiehl's is awesome about sampling and truth be told that is how I ended up finding so many of my favorites from the brand!
