FACE: Kiehls Midnight Recovery Eye

Change of job. Change in routine. More Travel.  I felt like my skin needed rescuing during the month of August … But more so the tiredness was starting to show around my eye area – fine lines and a generally drier appearance, I know this because of the dreaded undereye concealer creasing I got throughout my days at work etc.

I have recently purchased Kiehls Midnight Recovery Eye to see what ‘repair’ I could do topically, alongside upping my water intake.

  
I’m pleased with the results! 

Actually I’m more than pleased with the results, I often feel it does take time for creams, lotions and potions to adjust to my skin before I see the results.  That being also true because of how skin is constantly renewing and repairing itself.  Personally for me, I feel this eye cream lived up to its claims.
Within days … Yes that’s right days, the fine lines presented more of a softer appearance and the dreaded concealer creasing – See ya! 

So the serous bit what’s in this ‘magical’ cream, here’s the product description from the Kiehls website:

Specifically formulated for the delicate under-eye area to achieve fresher, younger looking eyes by morning by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Formulated with Butcher’s Broom, Squalane, Evening Primrose and Lavender.

Paraben-free, fragrance-free, mineral oil-free.

Now the ingredients:

Water, Helianthus Annuus Seed/Oil/Sunflower Seed Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis Oil/ Jojoba Seed Oil, Prunus Armeniaca Kernel Oil/Apricot Kernel Oil, Squalane, Alcohol Denat., Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Glucoside, Oenothera Biennis Oil/Evening Primrose Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter/Shea Butter, Lithium Magnesium Sodium Silicate, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Xanthan Gum, Ruscus Aculeatus Extract/Ruscus Aculeatus Root Extract, Aloe Barbadensis/Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder, Tocopherol, Lavandula Angustifolia Oil/Lavender Oil, Adenosine, Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Oil/Rosemary Leaf Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Citronellol, Lavandula Hybrida Oil, Geraniol, Linalool, Cucumis Sativus Extract/Cucumber Fruit Extract, Curcuma Longa Extract/Turmeric Root Extract, Curcuma Longa Extract/Turmeric Root Extract, Sclareolide, Rosa SPP/Rose Flower Oil, Jasminum Officinale Extract/Jasmine Extract

So what’s not so good about about the product you ask….?

Ahem….The packaging.

Whilst I love the fact that I’m not dipping my fingers into a pot, just a little squeeze on the tube and a dot of cream is all that is required.  

The nozzle on the tube is too narrow(or the one I purchased)  I had to keep fighting with it to get the cream out! 

On one attempt I ended up over squeezing the tube and wasting some cream as it projectiled across the other side of the room in a bid for freedom. Seriously.  I then with brute force took to the scissors and snipped the end of the nozzle a couple of times. This did the trick!
All in all I would recommend this eye cream and will definitely repurchase it.   The price tag is fair at £24.50, I purchased mine from SpaceNK.

Kiehls if you ever so happen to read this… Please please make an adjustment to the nozzle on the tube.

Anywho that’s all for now…

Thanks for reading …
