This multitasking Youth Dose Eye Treatment from Kiehl's is meant to combat signs of aging while acting as a concealer primer in order to brighten and smooth the under-eye area.
Pro-retinol, aka retinyl palmitate or vitamin A palmitate, is used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles while improving firmness under the eye. The tinted product also includes antioxidative vitamin Cg (ascorbyl glucoside) and red grape seed extract in order to smooth skin texture and reduce the appearance of dark circles, respectively.
The lightweight product has a creamy texture, designed to absorb quickly and smoothly. In a clinical study, 92.6% of users reported smoother-feeling skin after two weeks of use; after eight weeks, 85% experienced reduced appearance of puffiness, wrinkles and fine lines while 83% reported a more youthful eye area.
Like the formula within, the product's packaging is soothing and illuminating, touting a light blue shade and holographic foil accents. The brand recommends use alone or under makeup.
