This eye cream is a pale yellow gift to us mortals from the Heavens above.

I have tired eyes with dark circles which become worse from frequent lack of sleep and poor nutrition. When I was in New Jersey a week ago, an MUA recommended this to me, and I’ll tell you: there is no going back from it. It is youth, freshness, and wide-eyed radiance in a pot.

What, and how?

This cream is packed with moisture and once dabbed onto the orbital bone, it does not stray. I apply this at night and wake up in the morning looking (and feeling) a thousand times better than I would without it.

Those tiny little lines under the eyes? Mine are actually all gone save for one faint line under my left eye.

I also use it under my makeup. It makes primer, shadow, and concealer legit glide across the skin. Bye bye, creased concealer!

You need the tiniest amount (personally I haven’t had to use the stuff in the actual pot yet; I’m still comfortably making do with the cream stuck to the inner flap for now – that’s how little I require for my always-tired eyes) to dab onto your orbital bone and under the eyes until it has been soaked in by the skin. Whatever is left, I sweep it across my eyelids and brow bone.

UPDATE: I genuinely feel like in the 4 weeks I have used this cream, it has actually helped me with my dark circles. They do not look as prominent as they once were, and while they were always still faintly visible under concealer a month ago, that is no longer the case. If I see more improvement in another month, I’ll try to be sure and provide an update then, also. 

The downside

This is quite expensive IMO. $29 for 0.5 fl oz and $48 for 0.95 fl oz.

Where can you get it?

Nordstrom outlets and online, and Kiehl’s.

Do I recommend this?

If you want an eye cream that moisturizes the under-eye, keeps it looking fresh, minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, and over all does what an eye cream is supposed to do, this is for you. I’ve looked at the quality, quantity, and pricing of eye treatments from a bunch of well-known brands (Including Kiehl’s, Origins, Clarins, etc) before settling on this baby. And I think I’ll be loyal to it for life. (Or for as long as my bank account allows me to be loyal to it.)
