Kiss My Face Eyewitness Eye Repair Crème - review


I bought this product a while back from iHerb because I had a voucher to use up and I was low on eye cream at the time. 

I purchased two eye creams in the same order, and while I really like the other one (from Earth Science, reviewed here), this one isn't as good and I wouldn't buy it again. Having said this, there's nothing hugely wrong with the product and you could do a lot worse for $20 AUD.

Kiss My Face claims/product details:
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines, dark circles and puffiness with these naturally effective ingredients
  • Smooth the appearance of wrinkles and moisturise the delicate skin around your eyes
  • Natural and organic oils and butters leave skin looking hydrated and rejuvenated
  • Potent and pure
  • For all skin types
  • No parabens, phthalates, SLS, artificial colours, artificial fragrances or animal ingredients 
  • Cruelty free
  • To use: smooth cream gently around eye area in a circular patting motion, following the shape of the eye; use morning and evening or as desired 
  • RRP $19 AUD approx for 15ml (see eg iHerb)

I do like the packaging of this product - I reckon a tube is much better than a pot. 

I also like the focused nozzle, which makes it easy to dispense a small amount of cream each time.


There's nothing hugely wrong with this eye cream, it's just that it doesn't have enough punch for me and I need more for my dry skin. It might suit people in their 20s better, but those of us over the 30 mark generally need something with more grunt - or at least I do.

It's a white cream that feels lightweight but still moisturising, and it's not so heavy that you can't wear it under makeup. It has a faint, creamy scent that's not offensive or overpowering, so the smell shouldn't bother most people.

While I do find this to be reasonably moisturising, it's not nourishing enough for me and although I can apply it both morning and evening without feeling that my eye area is suffering, my eyes haven't looked their best during the testing period either. 

The product does just enough to keep dry skin at bay, but it doesn't do any more than that and, now that I've tested this, I've added in another eye cream as the last step in my skincare routine before bed, just to make sure the area is as hydrated and plumped as possible.

On the claims: I don't think it reduces the appearance of fine lines/wrinkles, dark circles or puffiness (not at all); but it does moisturise the area well enough. It doesn't leave my skin looking hydrated and rejuvenated, but it doesn't leave it looking awful either - a good thing, because some eye creams can leave my eyes looking worse for wear.

So although I think this is a good basic eye cream that should suit those who are younger than me (I'm 36) and/or don't have dry skin, it's not something I would recommend if you need your eye creams to go that extra mile. It's reasonably moisturising and absorbs well, but it's not enough for me personally and I think you can do better - even at this low price point.

Ok for the price.
