I think a true holy grail product is really hard to find, having to try product after product, switching between brands trying to find that one product that makes you swoon. When you do find something that lives up to all of your expectations, and more, when you've finally found that one product you can't live without, it's a rare but special occassion. I love a lot of products, whether skincare, makeup, hair care or body care. I'm a product junkie and I've put hundreds of products to the test in my time. I've also put a hell of a lot of eye creams to the test over the past twelve or so years, but there's one in particular which I am now on my second tube of. An actual repurchase. Or third purchase, if you count the one I have as back up! I've discussed the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Eye (Kiehl's, 15ml, £24.50) on the blog before, but always in posts alongside other fab skincare or favourite products, so considering it's something I really would never want to live without, it's time I dedicated a whole post to this stunning blue tube of skincare magic.
Eye cream is often a part of our skincare routines which a lot of people will opt out of including. Some people think an eye cream is a completely unnecessary step, other's say they don't have the time to apply extra products and some people just don't want to apply eye cream. That's fine, but for me personally, I need something which is going to nourish, protect and hydrate the delicate under eye skin. The skin around our eyes is much thinner and far more delicate than the rest of our face or body, it's one of the places we can expect to get those pesky fine lines and for me, whenever I am tired or run down, it's my eyes that show it straight away. Big, dark, saggy bags under my eyes, it just won't do!
Midnight Recovery Eye has some incredibly soothing ingredients, as well as ingredients picked to nourish the delicate skin, hydrate, freshen and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It's paraben, fragrance and mineral free and contains four main key ingredients; Butcher's Broom, Squalane, Evening Primrose and Lavender. I apply half a pea sized amount to each eye, taking time to gently massage the luxurious cream in. Within seconds my eyes feel instantly refreshed and soothed, opposed to the tired and heavy feel I usually have at the end of the day. By morning I awake with fresher looking, youthfully plump eyes which are bright rather than dark and dull. If I ever miss this particular PM eye cream out of my routine, just one none-use shows the affects and I'm straight back to it the next night. Even better? My first tube lasted me a whole nine months, amazing value for money! It's a wonderful product which I could never live without, my holy grail eye cream. There's just nothing else like it, really.
