Kiehl’s should get a little flushed on the cheeks right about now.
Their best-selling under-eye cream only has 2 main ingredients: Shea butter and avocado oil. Apart from a whole lot of ingredients I can’t pronounce.
Shea butter and avocado oil do a great job in moisturizing the fragile skin underneath your eyes. So you can easily make your own eye treatment, for a fraction of the cost.
What you’ll need (for 30 ml):
- 1 tbsp. Shea butter
- 1 tbsp. Avocado oil
Melt the Shea butter in a double boiler or in a tablespoon over a candle.
Pour the melted Shea butter in a bowl and add the avocado oil. Stir well and let it solidify. You can put it in the fridge if you like.
Give it another whisk and there you go, your own eye cream ready to work its magic! Keep it in the fridge if you live in a hot climate.
A little goes a long way with this eye cream. Use the finger next to your pinky (I’m sure there’s a more official name for it) and let a teeny-tiny amount melt onto your finger. Dab it underneath your eyes.
This is definitely a treatment for your eyes. I only use it at night times. Unless your eye area is very dry, it’s not an ideal makeup base.
Time for some beauty sleep!
