I’ve been lusting after more skincare from Kiehl’s ever since I first tried their Ultra Facial Cream (that stuff is still one of the most hydrating moisturisers I have ever tried), and so I was incredibly excited when these popped in through the mail a while back. I’ve been trying out a lot of new skincare over the past few months and reviewing them one by one because I want to give everything a solid try before sharing my thoughts. I have four products that I’m sharing my thoughts on today – a couple of these are cult classics from the brand and another is a newer launch (and possibly my favourite product from the bunch!).
Starting off with one of the most popular products in the beauty market, the Midnight Recovery Concentrate* is probably what first comes to mind when you think of Kiehls. I have been using this religiously every night for the past month, just a couple of drops between my toner and my moisturiser. Let me tell you… the hype is real. I wake up with my skin looking smooth and refreshed – my acne scars are healing day by day, and I honestly think it’s all down to this little bottle. The scent is also worth mentioning – the formula contains lavender so it’s a very soothing and calming product to apply before bed.
Another cult classic from Kiehls is there Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Masque*. Actually, all the face masks from Kiehls look absolutely incredible and often appear in favourites when I’m reading magazines and other blogs. I was so happy to receive this particular mask because I’ve heard of the healing powers of turmeric and the brightening effect it can have on the skin. I’ve used this mask about three times now and each time I wash the mask off, I feel like I have new skin. It instantly adds radiance and a ‘fresh-faced’ feel to the skin… I’d call it a quick facial in a tub. If you’ve had a particularly rough day, I’d recommend this mask without a doubt!
I was very intrigued by the Cactus Flower & ‘Tibetan Ginseng’ Hydrating Mist* because I’ve recently fallen in love with facial mists and I’m always keen to try something new. I like to use this to refresh my makeup throughout the day, and add a little dewy-ness back into the skin. It smells gorgeous and is infused with several essential oils which makes it another incredibly calming product to use.
Leaving perhaps my favourite until last, I wanted to talk about the Glow Formula Skin Hydrator*. This is a newer launch from Kiehls and it has been such a game changer in my skincare routine. I like to use this on makeup free days as a little bit of a skin boost – it adds radiance and seems to blur out any imperfections, just generally making my complexion appear brighter and healthier without any effort at all. It’s lightweight but very hydrating, and packed with antioxidants thanks to the pomegranate extract, so I’ve been reaching for this little gem a lot over the past couple of months. You can wear this underneath makeup too and it just adds a little more glow – I’ve tried it that way and I love how my makeup looks with a little of this underneath.
