The hardest thing for me is to decide on the purchase of products for the care of the area around the eyes, because I am guided by the logic that the serum and/or cream that I apply to the skin of my face also cares for that area. Considering my attitude, a cream or serum must attract me well with its ingredients in order for me to buy it.
Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing & Dark Circle-Diminishing Vitamin C Eye Serum attracted me with 10 percent vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that, among other things, whitens dark circles, peptides that act on collagen and consequently on skin firmness, and hyaluronic acid that fills in wrinkles.
So, three excellent anti-aging serum ingredients whose individual effectiveness (vitamin C) has been clinically proven. According to the manufacturer, the serum works on brown under-eye circles (they can be caused by hyperpigmentation and darken after exposure to the sun) and blue under-eye circles (they are associated with puffiness and water retention). The appearance of dark circles is a complex problem and depends on several factors: genetics, lifestyle, hours of sleep, exposure to the sun… The serum also smooths lines and wrinkles, reduces the puffiness of the area around the eyes and gives a glow.
The texture of the serum is thick, spreads easily and is quickly absorbed into the skin. It is orange in color because of the vitamin C in its composition. It is applied in the morning and in the evening by dabbing a small amount of the product with your fingers on a clean area around the eyes. It leaves a silky layer on the skin and does not irritate the eyes.

The price is high, like most Kiehl’s products, but you need a small amount of anti-aging serum, so the bottle will last you for months. I did not notice a significant and immediate effect on the dark circles (can it be a cosmetic product?), maybe because they are not too pronounced for me, but you will notice that after long-term use, it will slightly lighten the area around the eyes, hydrate it and give it softness. Small wrinkles are less visible after applying the serum, and I liked the feeling of additional hydration of the skin around the eyes. Kiehl’s serum showed a lot of promise, however, it is still only average, and at this, but also more favorable price, you can find more effective creams and serums.
