Product Review: Kahina Giving Beauty Eye Cream

I can’t lie: I am not exactly the ideal target for an eye cream. I’m a less-is-more girl at heart, and I find smile lines really sexy. And yet, I freaking love eye cream. Always have. There’s just something pleasing about the whole process: Patting it on instead of rubbing. The feeling of something soothing on such a delicate part of the face. How easy it is to conceal my bags after I apply it.

Of course, I’m still skeptical about the ingredients in most, knowing that these products are essentially snake oil in a $200 package—which is why I was delighted to try this new one by Kahina Giving Beauty.

We write about this luxey argan-oil-based collection in the book, and I’m a big believer in the oil’s healing and soothing properties. Their eye cream uses that same oil—which is super-high in antioxidant vitamin E—paired with tea extracts, rhodiola root extract and something called saccharomyces cerevisiae extract,  which has some encouraging research written about it.

I’ve been using it for a few weeks and I feel especially dewy. In a pinch I’ve also smeared it on other parts of my face and like it—though at $65 a jar I won’t do that often.

  1. Thank you for spreading the word about the new addition to the Kahina line! You are absolutely right about using it in a pinch in more places than the eye area- we always try to make multifunctional products! The more people that know about us, the more fully we can fulfill our mission to aid the Berber women who produce the argan oil in all of our products.

    Yes! One of the things I like best about Kahina—aside from how pretty the bottles look in my house, and the high quality of the products—is the sourcing of the oil itself. It’s organic, which is important when you’re smearing pure oil on your face, and important for the planet, obviously. Kahina also supports Berber women in the most meaningful way possible: through employment and by giving them 25% of all profits. Swoon!
