My Kiehl’s skincare routine
Good morning everyone, today’ imma show you all my Keihl’s favourites!
To be honest, I have never has an interest in Khiels before. For some weird reason I feel like it’s just another skincare brand like Origins or Fresh. Not until one of my friends worked for Loreal starts raving about it did I start to have the brand under my radar.
Luckily, I was later approached by one of Keihl’s PR people to let me try their products. Many thanks to Khun Bumbim to chose the perfect products for my skin!
I tried several products, but today I’ll rant about the ones that have become my favourites.
First up, the Calenduia Herbal-Extract Toner Alcohol Free. At first I was using the Fresh Umbrian Clay toner, but this has taken its place! What I love about it is the SCENT. Yes I know it’s weird to love sth cause of the smell, but I really love this thing. It reminds me of a herbal candy my mom used to give me when I was a kid to cure sore throat. I’m sure many people will disagree with me that this smells good, but if you’re a herbal or tea lover, I guarantee you will like the scent.
Regarding the performance, I’m not sure how toners from different brands differ (I cant really tell if the benefits claimed really work), but I can tell how they smell, and the texture of the toner. This one is a clear yellowish color, with herbal leaves mixed in. I don’t mind them at all, it even makes the toner even more natural. Overall, I love this! It’s also ahcohol free, so it’s perfect for sensitive skin (and aocohol-allergic people like me!)
Next, the Clearly Corrective Dark-Spot Solution. Clinically demonstrated to help correct dark spots and discolorations and for visible correction and clarity. This is another product I would have never purchased by my own. But now that I have tried it, I’m sure I will have to continue buying this. First of all, I’ve been taking photos of makeup in the sun (check out my Instagram photos for proof!) so my skin has gotten incredibly darker in such a short time. My mom even mentions this, and I cant wear my lighter foundations anymore. Second, the texture of the serum absorbs into my skin incredibly fast, and doesn’t leave a residue. I hate tacky creams or oily serums, so this is perfect. Third, I feel like my skin is actually nicer in the morning. Overall, I will have to continuine buying if I run out! Great for those of you looking for something to cure dark spots!
Next, the Power-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate. Clinically demonstrated to visibly decrease the appearance of lines and wrinkles including brow, forehead, and marionette lines while improving skin texture and radiance. This was one unexpected serum. Before I even received the PR products, one of my colleagues said this was her holy grail in her night routine. She proclaims that her skin is glowing thanks to this little bottle, and it’s a must buy from Keihls. So I’m super excited to try it. When I put it on, it has a hot tingling effect that goes away after a while, and I believe that’s when the magic happens. As I still haven’t had many lines on my face, I cant tell if it does reduce lines, but what I know is it really does improve skin texture and radiance. The radiance part is so true to the claim! My friend has the most glowing skin, and I hope I’ll look like that soon too!
Ultra Facial Oil-Free gel Cream. To be honest Ive tried a gazillion Gel creams in my life, but this one has to be one of my favourites. First, it has a slight cooling effect once on my skin. Feels so refreshing (especially in this super hot Thailand). Second, it absorbs super fast and does not feel greasy at all. I know gel creams are non greasy, but this is exceptionally non greasy. Last, it doesn’t have perfume. I think it’s great for sensitive skin. Well all Kheils products done have alcohol to begin with, but to find a gel cream with no ahcohol is not so easy these days.
Midnight Recovery Concentrate – A replenishing Elixir of Pure Essential Oils and Distilled botanicals to visibly restore the appearance of skin by morning. I only add this oil if my face is feeling very dehydrated, since I try to stay away from oils. But what’s so special about this is the scent! Again, yes I’m a sucker for good smelling things, and I love Primrose and Lavender. The smell also helps with deeper sleep and just feels so relaxing.
Other honourable mentions include the Ultra Light Daily UV Defense, perfect for Thailand with super high UV, as high as 11. I mean, sunscreen is a must for everyday! My mom even wears them even if she's indoors. She's loving this!
Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Mask. For those with clogged, pollution damaged pores, this mask is a great way to clean them out! It's hard to find one for sensitive skin.
Finally, the Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturing Serum Concentrate. This is an odorless, colourless serum, perfect for sensitive skin. Helps cure damaged skin and add plumpness to tired skin.
