A non-irritating formula perfect for sensitive skin

Reviewed by Elena

I’m in my early 30s with sensitive skin, and I have been using the Kahina Eye Serum ($78) for the past month. The texture is something between an oil and a gel; it is lightweight and absorbs quickly. It has a nice consistency and doesn’t turn sticky. The ingredients include hyaluronic acid, which is a skin-imitating ingredient that helps seal in moisture. When I shop for skincare, antioxidants and peptides are one of the main properties I look for, and this serum has both; it is made with argan oil, which contains helpful fatty acids and vitamin E.

After applying the serum I wait about 30 seconds to make sure it has sunk in, and then I apply moisturizer and sunscreen. I found that the eye serum works well for layering with other products; you could easily apply makeup right over the serum. The bottle is small (.5oz), but you only need a few drops so this will probably last me three months. The product is marketed to “depuff” and “diminish dark circles” – neither of which I suffer from so I can’t really say if it works for these conditions, but I would recommend this product to anyone looking for an eye serum. It has a nice texture that adds moisture and antioxidants with no added fragrance or irritating ingredients, and it could be used anywhere on the face or body. I was also glad to read that Kahina donates 25% of sales to the Berber women in Morocco (they extract the argan oil from the local trees) so this helps justify the $78 price tag. The packaging is unremarkable, but it is biodegradable – a nice touch.
