I'm a minimalist when it comes to skin care. I only use a few products every day, but I swear by them and rarely ever deviate. Most people tell me my skin looks great, so why fix something that isn't broken, right? The one essential component of my nighttime skin-care routine? The famous Kiehl's avocado eye cream. I'm not exaggerating about the famous part: A-listers including Kaley Cuoco and Kendall Jenner also use it. It's on rare sale on Amazon right now for 47% off, so if you want brighter, more hydrated under-eyes, add it to your cart stat.

If you're looking for a product specially designed to nourish the skin underneath your eyes, this is a strong contender. One Amazon shopper who's loyal to this eye cream commented, "I will be 80 this year and no one believes it."

Why is it a good deal?

Kiehl's isn't a brand that discounts its skin-care products all that often. They're popular enough that many shoppers don't think twice about buying them at full price. Even when Kiehl's does have sales, discounts typically top out at 25% off. So scoring the best-selling avocado eye cream for nearly 50% off? It's one of those unicorn deals you just can't walk away from.

Why do I need this?

Unlike other skin-care products that promise to reverse signs of aging and totally transform your face, Kiehl's is much more modest (and honest) about its avocado eye cream. No, it will not erase fine lines or remove dark circles, but it will beautifully hydrate the delicate skin under your eyes to help make them look brighter and less puffy. I can tell you it makes a big difference: I usually use the eye cream at night, but sometimes I use it in the morning after only a few hours of sleep, and it gives me a glowy boost, no makeup required.

Kiehl's avocado eye cream is rich and creamy. If you prefer lighter, gel-based formulas, this might not be the product for you. It does dry nicely and doesn't leave any greasy film or residue, but it's thick when you first apply it.

One last important note: It doesn't irritate your eyes. As someone with incredibly sensitive eyes that water and tear up pretty much whenever I try a new product, I can tell you that this Kiehl's cream has never burned or stung — even when I accidentally got it inside my eyes.

This thick under-eye cream from Kiehl's lasts and lasts, shoppers say.

What reviewers say

Amazon shoppers give Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado 4.5 out of 5 stars, which is comparable to how well the product rates at other retailers across the web. Many shoppers say it's effective and very moisturizing.

"Best eye moisturizer," one commenter said. "I've used this product for years and find it is one of the best eye creams around. The avocado is so moisturizing but it absorbs quickly and keeps the skin soft. Kiehl's products are a great value for the money. A little of this goes a very long way."

Another customer wrote, "Before I was using CeraVe under-eye cream. It did not do the trick. My skin is on the drier side these days so I needed to up my eye cream game. This is it! This is everything! The moisture and hydration it provides is unbeatable. Price is worth it."

Among the top complaints: The aforementioned thickness. "It's a great eye cream, but I find it to be on the thicker side which makes application difficult," one shopper wrote.

Powerhouse ingredients include vitamin A, avocado oil, shea butter and fatty acids, all of which work to deliver moisture and hydration to the under-eye area.
