The Skincare #16: Kiehl's Rosa Arctica Eye Balm
Tuesday, 16 April 2013
A task that excites me far too much...re-arranging my skincare collection. During one such organising session, I rediscovered Kiehl's Rosa Arctica Eye Balm. I was using up others from my stash as mentioned in my Eye Creams post but couldn't wait to start using this. So keen in fact, that I threw away the box and used this before I could take photos. Beauty blogger fail - sorry!
I absolutely love using this. As it is so thick, I've added this to my night-time skincare routine and use one of my lighter eye creams during the day, when wearing makeup. This is a rich balm with an almost waxy texture but thins out when you're applying it. This is super hydrating and works to smooth out the delicate eye area. Perfect for anyone who has very dry skin around their eyes and needs a cream with a little more oomph.
I dab a healthy dose around my peepers at night and in the morning it leaves the skin around my eyes moisturised and makes my eyes look more refreshed, even if more often than not I'm considering having my coffee administered through a drip and don't feel refreshed :)
