How the New Kiehl’s Vitamin C Eye Serum Is Brightening Up My Stubborn Under-Eye Circles
My dark circles are no joke — I’ve been struggling with them for as long as I can remember. I have to apply two layers of concealer on the daily to make sure that the purple rings under my eyes don’t peek through. It wasn’t until I interviewed board-certified dermatologist and Skincare.com consultant Joshua Zeichner, M.D., about using eye creams with Vitamin C that I realized applying one could improve my situation.
Vitamin C helps brighten pigmentation like that of dark under-eye circles, so when Kiehl’s sent me the new Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line Reducing & Dark Circle Diminishing Vitamin C Eye Serum to try, I knew I had to give it a shot. Now, I’m hooked.
What makes the Kiehl’s vitamin C eye serum stand out from the rest is that it also contains a tri-peptide complex and hyaluronic acid. In addition to dark circles, the formula promises to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area.
The first time I pumped the formula onto my hands, I was pleasantly surprised by how thick and creamy the consistency is. It instantly felt cooling, comfortable and moisturizing. Plus, as soon as I applied it, I noticed that the formula not only absorbed into the skin very quickly but also created a blurred, poreless finish. Those teeny, tiny lines that sit under my eyes were no longer visible, and the whole area looked refined and smooth.
After about a week of using the serum consistently (every morning before makeup), I began to notice that my under-eye tone appeared brighter and more even. The biggest test for me was seeing how much concealer I’d have to wear after using the serum. I was thrilled to find out that I needed just one layer of primer, CC cream and concealer for a completely bright-eyed look.
If you have dark circles, you need to try this serum. No longer do I feel like I have to constantly hide my dark circles — rather, I’m working on diminishing them all together, one Vitamin C eye serum application at a time.
