Today I am reviewing one of the products from Kiehl’s. It is called Kiehl’s Ultra Moisturizing Eye Stick with SPF 30. I got this product from Japan. I was going through Kiehl’s counter and was looking for sunscreen when I saw this and I found the idea of SPF for eyes very interesting and the packaging is super cool. I had fallen in love with this and bought it immediately. Read on to see how my love has grown for this product.

My Experience with Kiehl’s Ultra Moisturizing Eye Stick with SPF 30
Okay, so how many of us apply sunscreen under the eye area? I don’t know how many of you like this idea but I have totally fallen for it. When I saw this product I questioned myself do I really need this? I thought that If we stress so much on applying a sunscreen on our face, then it is more important to apply a good sunscreen(meant for eyes only) on our eyes as the skin is much more delicate. Finally, I bought it and I must say, I enjoy this product a lot.
This comes in a very portable packaging that is very easy to carry around in the purse for reapplication. It is like a lipstick but it is a moisturizer for eyes with SPF. Only the shape resembles a lipstick. I open this and rotate in the same way I open a lipstick and apply under and above the eye area 30 minutes before stepping out in the sun. I reapply as and when I feel the need. It is a peachy/orangy color stick.I don’t have to dig my fingers to take out the product throughout the day and this also maintains a high level of hygiene.
It has very high value of SPF 30. That I think is descent enough if you are going out in the sun. I am satisfied that I am trying all that I can from my end to protect my skin.
I do not apply a separate moisturizer on top of this as I feel it gets really oily. This Ultra Moisturizer stick is enough. I believe it is a must for our skincare routine as delicate skin beneath eyes need SPF to protect it from harsh rays of sun.
