How to Apply:
-Apply a small amount of eye treatment with fingertip along the orbital bone and under eye area
-Pat gently without pulling the skin

Bitter orange possesses a complex chemical makeup. Of particular value is the oil that is extracted from the petal of the bitter orange tree and is particularly effective at stimulating cutaneous tone. Bitter Orange is also known as Bigarade Orange or Neroli.

This new, patented ingredient improves skin around the eye area by stimulating natural enzymes that help strengthen under-eye area capillaries. Studies demonstrate the effectiveness of Haloxyl™ and its ability to increase skin density to better support the microvascular network in eye area skin and alleviate inflammation.

I am allergic to most eye treatments, even hypoallergenic ones. Mostly I am looking for an anti-aging eye moisturizer that, in the process of plumping up skin, does not make my under-eye area puffy. Which of Kiehl's eye products works most effectively fort firming eye tissue without adding puffiness?

I bought an all over moisturizer and this eye cream. Should I use the eye cream first, under the moisturizer? What is the best way to use this product in combination with other products?
Liz S on Apr 9, 2012
Best Answer: Yes, use this first just under the eye- don't get it in your eye because it will sting a little bit- but under your eye and then put your moisturizer on your face but you don't need to put it over this cream. I use it only in the morning and use other eye cream at night. I think it is effective.

How many times should i use it in a day?
Hilal Demir on Feb 2, 2014
Best Answer: I have never noticed irritation from using it twice a day. I personally use it once a day in the am, and use an eyecream at bedtime for extra moisture instead of the concentrate. The concentrate is great for am use.

I'm looking for a great product to remove crows feet ?
A shopper on Apr 19, 2015
Best Answer: I selected this product to help with my dark under eye circles, but I think it has also helped nourish my entire eye area which has helped lessen any fine lines. I'm not sure about removing "crows feet" but it definitely makes my eyes area brighter and healthier.

For morning or night?
Bettina on Mar 25, 2015
Best Answer: I prefer using this at night. It's not as tingly as the facial serum, but if you wear it at night, you don't run the risk of rubbing it into your eyes or onto your lids while making up your eyes (no matter how careful I am, I seem to do this and then it burns). Especially something to consider if you wear contacts. Wear it at night and it'll be absorbed by morning.

Is this eye serum??
elen r on Mar 3, 2015
Best Answer: It is not for nighttime.. It is a cream. I use it daily and it seems to help the dark circles and lines under my eyes. I use Midnight Recovery Ete Concentrate at night. I have used Kiehl's products for about eight years and find that they really help.

Wishing well

Is the line-reducing eye brightening concentrate meant to be used with an eye cream? Or is it a cream?
A shopper on Dec 30, 2012
Best Answer: I use it only in the morning in conjunction with the line-reducing lotion. I also use a mosturizing tinted foundation creme in the morning.

At night I use Keihl's eye cream (recovery in the blue tube).

I have been using the Line -Reducing Eye concentrate for years and love it and feel that it truly reduces the lines for the day.

I need to know when to pur the eye cream, do I put the eye cream before or after the face cream?
Lizha j on Dec 17, 2013
Best Answer: Face cream first then the concentrate. The concentrate is not a moisturizer, so I usually use their Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado first, let it absorb for a few minutes and then come back and put the eye brightening concentrate on. Fabulous combination!

I have extremely dark circles under my eyes. I have always had them, but with age they are getting worse. When I try eye creams, it only enhances the circles.

I want to try something totally natural, that will really help, and not just cover up the problem.
Can anyone give me their opinions?
A shopper on Feb 20, 2013
Best Answer: I have dark circles all my life and I started using this about last year never thinking anything will work. It has work somewhat, my husband mentioned that the dark circle gotten better and they are not as puffy anymore. There are no miracles in a tube but this does help. Now, I am generous with my cream usage and I pat it around under the eyes and use it day and night for more than 2 months before seeing results.

how often should it be used?
A shopper on Apr 17, 2012
Best Answer: I use it in the morning because that's when I want the "Eye Brightening" effect to work. I love the soft texture of the cream and it does go into the delicate eye skin. I only use products that sink into the face instead of lying on top. It could easily be used morning and night. Hope this helps.

An unfortunate hereditary trait I received was extreme dark circles but I also have incredibly dry skin around the eye area. I'm very interested in trying the Eye-Brightening Concentrate, but I'm very concerned that this will not provide the moisture I need. I've been using Rosa Artica at night on my face and I love the moisture. Is it ok to use this under the Rosa Artica eye cream?
