Kiehl’s Rosa Arctica Anti-Aging Eye Cream

Kiehl’s Rosa Arctica Anti-Aging Eye Cream ($46 for 0.5 oz.)
After I had such good luck with Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, which I wrote about here, I had been really curious to try some of the 10 other eye creams and serums that the brand offers. Where to start? I have to admit that part of the reason I was drawn to the Rosa Arctica Anti-Aging Eye Cream was the pretty frosted aqua jar, but it also seemed like a good next step because it’s meant to generally smooth, firm, and brighten the eye area for a youthful appearance.

Recent winter empties

By on March 1, 2017
Products I’ve used up over the past couple of months

I took a little break from keeping up with empties that I was going through, and I thought now that February is over I’d revisit the products that I’ve used up this winter. I’ve been a little more selective about the empty trash that I keep around so hopefully this is an easier group of things to keep up with and makes for a breezier read. Here are my final thoughts on the makeup and skincare products that deserve one last look before getting tossed out.

There were a few specific brands that became new loves for me, so you’ll see some brands repeat in my product picks, and I’ve gone ahead and broken down the favorites into 10 product categories. Ok, let’s go!

I’ve really been exploring a lot of skincare from Kiehl’s over the past several months, evidenced by posts here and here. While I fortunately can’t say any of the products have been complete misses for me, I definitely have some favorites that I’m very excited about. I’m even at a point where I can chat about 5 of my favorite products covering 5 different product categories, so it seems like a great time to talk about the stuff I’m really enjoying.

It probably shouldn’t have taken me this long to try some Kiehl’s products, but now that I’m in New York City I’ve passed through their flagship store in the East Village at a couple of times and have started to explore product range. Their flagship store is actually their original location that dates back to 1851 (a date that’s proudly proclaimed on all of their product packaging) when it was a pharmacy, and is a really cool place to visit.
