This lightweight, gel-textured eye-area moisturizer in stick form doesn’t contain anything to reduce puffy eyes. The tiny amount of caffeine isn’t going to have much effect, so here it's more of a 'why bother' ingredient. In higher amounts, it may have some anti-inflammatory benefit, but that's not what you're getting here.

Overall, the texture of this product will feel soothing and add hydration to skin around the eyes, but that’s true for almost any moisturizer. What the skin around the eyes and all over the face needs is far more than this product provides.

Minimizes puffiness and dark circles. Glides on easily without dragging or pulling, leaving an immediate cooling, soothing sensation. Lightweight, non-greasy texture provides deep hydration and will not creep into eyes.

Brand Overview

Kiehl's At-A-Glance

Kiehl’s has been around for quite some time, with its origins in a New York City-based pharmacy established in 1851. The brand is perhaps best known for its apothecary-style packaging and its best-selling (and celebrity favorite) Lip Balm #1.

Though the brand claims its products are made with the finest naturally-derived ingredients, most of its formulations include synthetically-produced ingredients as well. Like most skincare companies the line contains both good and not-so-great offerings; Kiehl’s main misstep is that many of its products contain fragrance ingredients that could irritate skin, particularly sensitive skin.

Note: Kiehl's is categorized as a brand that tests on animals because its products are sold in China. Although Kiehl's does not conduct animal testing for its products sold elsewhere, the Chinese government requires imported cosmetics be tested on animals, so foreign companies retailing there must comply. This requirement is why some brands state that they don’t test on animals “unless required by law.” Animal rights organizations consider cosmetic companies retailed in China to be brands that test on animals, and so does the Beautypedia Research Team.
