The Skincare Series | Eye Creams

Kiehl's Eye Creams

Makeup can cover a multiple of sins, but one thing I think is much harder to cover with makeup, is eye concerns. For me personally, I suffer from dark circles and bags on my under eye area and they can be the bane of my life to sort out sometimes! There are three products I have been using lately and at long last, I feel like I have battled and conquered the concerns I had for my eye area, and just in time for the skincare series on eye creams! A good eye cream will do what makeup can't - fix the problem at the cause. The skin around our eyes is incredibly sensitive and delicate, so it's important that we do what we can to look after it! 


The Origins GinZing* eye cream is a best seller for Origins and also a product many of you will have seen raved and raved about in the blogosphere. I've been using it for the past three weeks and I can completely see why it is such a well loved product. The Ginzing eye cream helps to reduce the look of dark circles, unsightly bags and puffiness. Origins proprietary complex of caffeine from coffee bean, panax ginsen, magnolia extract and natural optic brighteners rapidly wakes up, refreshes and restores radiance to tired eyes. Unlike most eye creams I have tried and tested, this isn't a white cream product. It has a slight colour to it and whenever I apply it I feel like it's almost an eye cream and a concealer in one. I've really enjoyed using it and see a big difference when I use it. This is my preferred morning eye cream for days I am wearing makeup. You can find it on the Origins website here and a 15ml pot costs £21.

When I went to the Nottingham's Kiehl's Blogger Gathering back in January, I picked up two eye creams from them which I had been lusting over for quite a while. I picked one eye cream for morning, and one for night time. I have seriously fallen in love with both of them and out of all the eye creams I have tried, these are my two favourites. The Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado is possibly one of the more bizarre, yet utterly beautiful, eye care products I have tried. A pale avocado green coloured cream, it can seem quite thick, but to use you rub your desired amount of product between your fingers and the cream becomes an almost oil like product! It has a unique, concentrated texture with is enriched with avocado to gently moisturise the delicate eye area. It's utterly beautiful and super refreshing and it's my go-to eye cream for days when I am going makeup free. A 14ml pot costs £20 and you can find it on the Kiehl's website here.

If you really want a great night-time eye cream which really works, I cannot recommend enough the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Eye Cream. It is 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, this eye cream is paraben, fragrance and mineral oil free. It is also beautiful when used alongside the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate (which I will be reviewing soon!) I couldn't imagine not using this in my night time routine! A 15ml tube costs £24.50 and you can find it on the Kiehl's website here.

  12. I've been using GinZing for the past week and it's one of my favourite skincare products EVER. I love how it's got the look of a highlighter in. When I went for my Origins facial the woman on the counter said to apply GinZing on an evening as more of an eye mask- just use a little extra than normal, don't pat in as much as you would if using it for during the day and then allow it to work its de-puffing magic!

  13. I agree, the Origins Ginzing Eye Cream is fantastic for beating early-morning shadows and bags under the eyes. I wear it every day under my concealer
