The saying goes ‘better late than never’. That’s exactly how I feel about Kiehl’s. I know Kiehl’s has been around for the longest time, but I only tried their products for the first time last month…and I do believe that I am a convert.
My Kiehl’s discovery started in duty free when I was off on holiday last month. I decided to purchase the Ultra Facial Cream and the Midnight Recovery Eye. I honestly can’t tell you what I was expecting. A lot of times I can’t actually use products that people rave about because my skin can be quite sensitive. That’s in addition to it being a combination of oily with the odd dry area here and there! (My struggles are real people lol).
My thoughts on Kiehl’s
However I was pleasantly surprised. The cream has the lightest of textures, but is extremely moisturizing without being overly harsh. By this I mean that, my skin didn’t feel like it was saturated in product.
Having used it consistently for over a month now, I do feel like I can see an improvement in my skin. With other products I have used in the past, I tend to moisturize twice a day, but I personally haven’t felt the need to with this. In the mornings I do my usual cleansing and toning and then I moisturize with the Ultra Facial Cream. In the evenings I do the same, and just apply the Midnight Recovery Eye.
Now, my absolute favorite is the Midnight Recovery Eye. For the longest time, I would wake up in the mornings with my under eye area being so dry. This made me look way more tired than I actually was. I tried everything, from olive oil, coconut oil, vaseline…you name it, nothing worked.
Since using the Midnight Recovery Eye, things have changed. The dryness is no more and my morning face takes much less time to fix lol. Needless to say, if I was given the choice of having only one beauty product for the rest of my life, for me it would be this hands down.
I have recently purchased the Kiehl’s lip balm, and like the other products before I really like. The good thing about it, is that I don’t feel like it needs to be reapplied throughout the day.
Although the products do appear small in size for the price paid, I would say it is worth it. A little amount of each product goes such a long way. So you get your money’s worth. The thing with beauty and skincare is that it is subjective. What works for one person may not work for another. But if like me you have been searching for a while, I would definitely recommend at least trying one of the products. I am already eyeing up what I may purchase from Kiehl’s next. Give it a try. You never know, you might like it 🙂
