Whenever I go to Las Vegas, I love going to Premium Outlet Mall to shop, especially at the CCO stores (Cosmetic Company Store). There are two such shops at the one outlet mall that I usually go to. When I was there in October, I was able to score some Giorgio Armani single eyeshadows (the ones like Infallibles).
I just went to Las Vegas last month and was hoping to find more of those eyeshadows but unfortunately, there was barely anything GA related in store. I was surprised to see a small selection of Kiehl's products there and was happy to find this eye cream.
It was quite chilly in Las Vegas and I felt that the eye cream that I took with me wasn't hydrating enough so I purchased the Kiehl's eye cream. I also wasn't getting enough sleep so I thought that with the eye brightening properties, it was perfect.
The first night that I used it, I loved it! It was very emolient and hydrating. I did think that perhaps it might be a little too oily for use most months when I returned home as there are only a couple of months when it gets to what I feel is chilly. I used it for the next couple of days and was totally happy with it until...
...I noticed one night that after applying it, the area where I applied it felt prickly and a bit itchy. By this time, it was just a day away from returning home so I decided to stop using it and use it only at night after I returned home. It was slowly starting to feel more prickly and itchy with each application, although I experienced no swelling, redness or visible irritation. It finally got to the point where I was trying desperately not to rub or scratch and had to wash my face to remove it completely.
I'm really sad that it hasn't worked well for me. I use Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Complex without any problems and love it. I guess that I'm still on the hunt for a good eye cream to use at night.
P.S. I'm starting to gather things for a blog sale so keep watching out for it. This eye cream will defintely be going into the blog sale. Hopefully someone else uses it with no problems and likes it.
