Klairs Fundamental Nourishing Eye Butter Review

Updated: Mar 16, 2021

As I get a little older, I’m appreciating good eye products more and more. And while a dedicated eye cream isn’t strictly necessary (a basic moisturizer will do), none of my face creams offer the benefits or the application experience of a specially formulated eye treatment.

I am currently using Klairs Fundamental Nourishing Eye Butter (in combination with their eye gel). It was sent to me for free, but is available on* Wishtrend, YesStyle (discount code KBHOBBIT), Amazon, and eBay.

This product is made without silicones, artificial colors and fragrances, and is vegan and cruelty free. A full list of ingredients is provided at the end of the review. The star components are sunflower seed oil (rich in vitamins A and E) and peptides (to improve fine lines). The cream can be used on other areas of the face and neck. I apply it to the nasolabial folds.

How to use:

  • Apply around the eyes after cleansing

  • Can be used on other areas (neck, nasolabial folds, etc)

My impressions I despise heavy or oily eye products. This one is none of those things, despite having “butter” in the name. Klairs Fundamental Nourishing Eye Butter has a lovely rich texture and gets absorbed quickly. I use it in the evenings after Klairs eye gel, but it can also be applied by itself, including in the mornings, even under makeup.

I’m really enjoying the plumped up appearance of the eye area. Now that it’s cold and dry, my under eyes are starting to show a bit of fine lines, but this butter takes care of them overnight. I look better rested than ever, even though my toddler is currently cutting molars (send wine…).

I’ve only been using this cream a few weeks, on a daily basis, but am seeing the plumping results already. I cannot speak how it would do with more severe signs of aging, but for my purposes it’s wonderful.

I’m seriously impressed with the quality of the currently available eye products. Even a decade ago most of them seemed oily, greasy, and overall subpar. But now we can have great quality for fairly good prices.
