Eye Creams Currently in Rotation


Eye creams kiehl's avocado treatment and eucerin aquaporin active revitalising eye care

Hi everyone, todays post is on the current eye creams I’m using in my skincare routine! I’ve really only started using eye creams religiously in the last year while before that it was an often forgotten step in my routine but I've got two now that I love that are in daily rotation so though I’d tell you about them!

Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado
This is a rich, thick and creamy eye treatment that contains Vitamin A, fatty acids and you guessed it, avocado oil. It claims to provide intense hydration for the delicate eye area and I totally agree! I love this cream and have been using it almost every night since I got it earlier this year and still have about a quarter left. It definitely is rich and does take a while before it sinks in completely which is why I love it for overnight hydration. I haven’t actually tried this during the day as I like a completely dry face before applying my makeup but for people with very dry skin this could act as a good base for makeup!

Some people might have a problem with having to dip their finger in but I personally don’t have a problem with this, I just make sure to wash my hands before applying it! Because the skin around our eyes is so delicate I like to take this cream on my ring finger and dot around my eye then gently rub it in! It doesn’t run into my eye either which I was worried about as it’s so thick so that’s another plus! I’m only 24 so wrinkles aren’t a huge worry (yet) and I’m not sure how much this treatment would do for those with deep wrinkles but the moisturising factor is definitely there so this gets a bug thumbs up from me!

Kiehl’s is sold from loads of places online so I’ve just linked their website and Space NK’s if you want a closer look!

Eucerin AQUAporin Active Revitalising Eye Cream*
Now this is a slightly newer addition to my skincare stash and one I have been loving! I mentioned that I don’t like to use the Kiehl’s cream in the morning as I find it takes a long time to sink in but this Eucerin offering is the opposite! It promises to provide deep long lasting hydration for 24 hours to reduce puffiness and dark circles for a fresh revitalised and radiant look.

It comes with a cooling applicator and I like to squeeze some of the product out of the top then use the tip to apply it round my eye area. Once I’ve got the cream on, which is quite gel like in texture, I like to take my ring finger and gently rub in to help spread the cream evenly around my eye area. The tip is seriously cooling! I am not a morning person and my eyes don’t properly open to about 12 o’clock in the day so this has been helping me fake looking awake! It sinks in quickly and gives me a lovely hydrated base to apply my makeup.

Since I wear contact lenses every day I was happy to see that this cream is also suitable for contact lens wearers and doesn’t aggravate my eyes! It’s also fragrance, paraben and alcohol free which is a huge plus especially round the delicate eye area and perfect if you have sensitive skin. Overall, I've noticed a huge difference in how awake my eyes look and they feel much more hydrated throughout the day!

The Eucerin AQUAporin Active revitalising eye cream can be found at the usual suspects – Boots, Look Fantastic and Escentual.

  1. I've never tried these. I'm currently using Vichy eye cream, which is ok but not amazing. I have yet to find my holy grail product!

  3. I've not owned an eye cream for a little while now but reading this has definitely inspired me to buy another sometime soon! Previously I've used Clinique's All About Eyes, and have been looking at Origin's GinZing eye cream but I love the sound of this Kiehl's one - so I'll have to check it out. Thanks for sharing :) x

    1. I've been meaning to try the Ginzing moisturiser for ages, didn't realise they did an eye cream too! Its definitely a step I was neglecting until earlier this year but I love doing it now! Xx

  4. The avocado in the Kiehl's cream is such an interesting addition! I don't think I've tried an eye cream with that in it before!

  15. The Kiehl's eye cream is on my list- I've always been curious about it and read some good reviews on it. I also LOVE avocados. I think I'll get it after I finish using the clinique smart serum for eyes!

  17. At the moment I use a Una Brenan eye cream, which is really good for puffy eyes. But I also want to try this one from Kiehl`s, read so many great reviews about it.

  18. I used Kiehls eye cream for an absolute age and I just ran out of it and never remembered to repurchase so thank you for reminding me of the gorgeous product! I use a moisturizer by Eucerin but have never seen the eye cream! I may need to give a looksie! xx

    1. Definitely do if you are after something lighter but just as hydrating! I really love Eucerin skincare! Xx

  19. These both sound so great! I love all the ingredients in the Kiehls one, but on the other hand I really like that the Eucerin eye cream has the cooling wand since its not something I've ever tried before. I'll have to see which one I end up finding in stores first as I'm always on the look out for a new eye cream :D
