Butchers broom, evening primrose and lavender sound like a combination straight out of a fairy tale, but that’s exactly what you’ll find in this brand new under eye cream.
Why buy an under eye cream? It often gets a bad reputation as an unnecessary step in your skin care routine. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m an eye cream skeptic. Or at least I was, until I tried Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye. It manages to be incredibly creamy without being the least bit greasy and it smells lightly of fresh lavender. I decided to challenge myself to try the cream every night for two weeks.
I thought it would be annoying to have to remember yet another step in my evening routine, but found myself excitedly reaching for it after I washed my face each night. Two weeks later, I think I look more awake and my dark circles appear lighter. Best of all, I feel like I get to have a luxurious moment before I slip into bed.
What it does: The adorably named Butcher’s broom is used to improve microcirculation and reduce inflammation, evening primrose oil contains omega-6 and fatty acids that aid in skin-barrier repair, Squalane functions as a non-irritating moisturizer and lavender is soothing.
Who should try it: Just about anyone who wants to look a little bit more awake in the morning and people who tend to travel a lot. Think: Celebs like Lea Michele, Rachel Zoe and Salma Hayek who are traveling to Fashion Week shows and actresses that want to look red carpet ready from the minute they wake up.
Where to buy it: It’s available now on Kiehls.com
