Use this marine-derived eye cream with Kiehl’s matching facial moisturizer to soften all your wrinkles and fine lines.

Birchbox Breakdown

While our marine adventures are limited to swimming pools, beaches, and the occasional bubble bath, the skincare experts at Kiehl’s are far more daring. They went to the ocean surrounding the Galapagos Islands to source abyssine, a survival molecule that thrives in extreme underwater environments. Lab tests showed that the ingredient doubles as a remarkable anti-aging treatment for the delicate under eye area. Use this rich cream regularly to combat the signs of fatigue and protect the skin around your eyes from free radicals.

How it Works

Derived from microscopic algae, abyssine is a polysaccharide (aka fatty acid) that helps organisms survive in hypothermal ocean vents. When you use it beneath your eyes, it alleviates dark circles, delays the cellular aging process, and reduces the look of fine lines.

How to Use

Morning and night, apply a few dots to the skin beneath your eyes, and pat to help the cream sink in.

didn't reverse anything

I didn't see anything different under my eyes after using a full bottle of this product. I feel like it may have moisturized but did not help with anti-aging.

Not sure about it

I'm honestly not sure if I noticed any difference after using this eye cream for a few months. But I liked the way it made the skin around my eyes feel. And it made me feel like I was doing something good for that delicate eye skin.

Love this product

I loved this product. I plan on buying it. It has a nice light fragrance, soaks into skin and doesn't feel greasy. Very nice.

Average eye cream

Eye cream is the one thing I'm really willing to splurge on. I'm 32 and have a huge fear of aging. I like this product fine, but it's not a miracle worker. I like the size of the product for the price and a little goes a long way. It will definitely last a long time, but I probably will try another product when it runs out.

very nice!

I enjoyed this product very much. Mosturizing and fresh around the eye area. It is nice before applying foundation and also before bed.

Preventantive

If you have lots of under eye problems like I do (darkness, lines and heavy bags) it won't really do a lot to ease all of those problems. It does keep your under eyes moisturized and supple and helps reduces puffiness. I use it in conjunction with my algenist under eye cream and it works well.

Works for me

This is my first eye cream and I have fine lines under my eyes. I suspect part of my issue is the dry winter air but this has lessened the wrinkles under one eye noticeably. I've been using the sample for well over a month and have at least another month's worth of product (considering I'll be using it on both eyes now). I only use it at night and a little goes a long way. I'll be purchasing this when I'm out. I'll probably start using it in the day too.

My New Must Have

I recently purchased a full size of this product and my eyes and myself are extremely happy that I have. This product is moisturizing enough to use at night so that you don't wake up with over tired looking peepers, but is also light weight enough that you can put it on in the morning and not worry about your makeup clumping over it. I am 27, with no real signs of wrinkling yet, but am prone to dry skin and slight puffiness. I've been using this product for about a month now and for me my skin feels better. My eye skin feels moisturized, refreshed, and if it's being well taken care of to keep them age approaching wrinkles at bay.

Bummer

Had high hopes for this one as it (a.) isn't a million dollars, (b.) touts a neat-sounding marine ingredient, and (c.) is from Kiehl's. Alas, 'twas not to be. Totally not special. Nothing remarkable about it. In fact, I feel like my fine lines actually got worse during these last few weeks of use. If all you use eye cream for is hydration, then this works just fine. If you are looking for anti-aging properties and the diminishing of fine lines, then look elsewhere. I won't buy this one again when my lil pot runs out.
