Finding great skincare products can be perplexing and overwhelming. There are tons of brands and products addressing different concerns. A good eye cream can tackle many problems and help moisturize but, finding one is the trick.

Kiehl’s Since 1851 Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado is a creamy, moisturizing eye treatment that is to provide hydration while taking in mind the sensitive area. The hydration comes from the beta carotene and shea butter along with the avocado oil that moisturizes and infuses the skin with amino acids, potassium and vitamins. The cream is a light green shade and a very thick consistency in the jar, however, once applied to the delicate under eye area it is quickly absorbed without a greasy feel. If you have dry skin under the eyes it will clear up in a matter of days. It is a luxurious product at a reasonable price.

It is easy to see why it is a customer favorite, between the effectiveness, the quality and price, it is worth testing it out for yourself. The 0.5 fl oz jar is priced at $28.50 USD and the 0.95 fl oz jar is $47 USD, the jars do last as you only need a small amount.

Should You Use Beauty Oils?

beauty oilThere is always a new trending product or serum that becomes the rage and you see all the companies make their version of it.  But, that doesn’t always mean it is for your skin.

Beauty Oil seems to be the trending new skincare product that is all over.  I have tried a couple of oils especially in the dry months to aid against drier skin.  A few tips if you are thinking about using Beauty Oils and which ones you should use based on your skin.

A great way to add a little beauty oil into you regime without going crazy is to mix it with your moisturizer.  Especially in the daytime if you are using a moisturizer with SPF.

Press oils onto your skin, don’t rub them in.

Bought an oil but not loving it for your skin?  Don’t toss it, use oil on dry hair to tame fly-aways.  Keep in mind to use it lightly and not go heavy.  Or mix the oil with your body moisturizer.

Beauty Oils can curb the signs of aging as they deliver antioxidants.  They also can make your skin glow by delivering moisture and radiance to the skin.  If you have oily skin than go with light oils or one that says featherweight on it.  This way you get the benefits of oil without the heaviness.  Another way to utilize oil is trying the cleansing oils.  They deep cleanse and remove makeup while leaving skin soft and not stripping it.

Still not sure?  One place that is great for being able to try it out and they will send samples home with you is Sephora.
