While recently going though my skin care drawer I realized that I have more Kiehl’s products then any other skin care brand and love to alternate their products season to season. Going into a Kiehl’s store or counter can be a bit overwhelming, especially if you don’t know anything about skin care so I wanted to sit down and put together a list of all my favorite products and show off a couple for new ones that have just been released for fall and winter 2016!
First up should be no surprise as I constantly rave about it on my snapchat and stand behind the wonderful benefits of essential oils. The Midnight Recovery Concentrate is a natural replenishing elixir of pure botanical oils that provides vital nutrients to enhance skin’s nighttime recovery. This oil is incredible for the dry winter months as it keeps the sky hydrated while you sleep and gives skin a healthy glow every morning. If you have oily skin this product is still great for you just make sure to use after cleaning your skin. Evening primrose oil is an effective ingredient for skin barrier repair and boosts radiance, too; lavender essential oil helps soothe inflamed or irritated skin while helping reduce skin blotchiness; and squalane, helps restore skin’s natural moisture barrier to keep it extra soft and supple. I also love adding a few drops to my body lotion just for the scent alone!
Just last month Kiehl’s launched their newest addition to the midnight recovery line. The Midnight Recovery Cleansing Oil is a lightweight oil that cuts through dirt and makeup by emulsifying with water to a cleansing milk to gently yet effectively dissolve even the hardest-to-remove makeup and impurities without overdoing, leaving skin clean and replenished. This cleanser will never leave you feeling like you’ve been stripped of all your necessary natural oils.
I change up my skin care routine a lot and used the newly launched mens anti-aging line though the spring and summer. While I don’t have skin texture in need of repair I love this line for its powerful benefits in preserving the great things that are going on with my skin. The Age Defender treatment is specifically formulated for men’s thicker, coarser skin and is clinically demonstrated to visibly lift and firm skin while minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The revitalizing moisturizer gently exfoliates dead skin cells, which then allows it to effectively penetrate skin’s surface layers, smoothing out roughness. Linseed extract is combined with caffeine and soy protein to significantly improve skin’s elasticity and firmness while strengthening skin for a youthful, more energized appearance. The range is super easy for any guy to use while feeling refreshing and cooling on the skin.
A few weeks ago I took you guys with me to develop my own Kiehl’s Formula (Click here to check out that blog post). The verdict is in and I love it! The Apothecary Preparations line is inspired by over 160 years of apothecary expertise and now gives consumers the opportunity to sit down with a Kiehl’s consultant and discuss their specific skin needs, resulting in the creation of a custom formula. I ended up creating a formula that focused on diminishing redness and included a high potency of anti aging and have seen strong results week by week. Overall I loved the experience and learn a lot about my skin I never knew.
This fall Kiehl’s has release two products for acne prone skin. The first is a facial treatment lotion that helps correct and prevent future blemishes while reducing the appearance of dullness and rough texture that is caused by acne scaring. This treatment is great for all skin types and be used as daily regimen or biweekly treatment like I use. Formulated with acne-clearing salicylic acid and pine bark extract, it calms and soothes inflamed skin while diminishing visible redness and evening skin tone for a clear complexion. Over time, skin appears healthy and youthfully refined.
The second new acne driven product is the targeted blemish spot treatment that helps rapidly reduce the appearance of breakouts upon flare up. Simply apply a thin layer to blemishes once daily and blend into skin. I love this one for the occasional irritation or pimple may pop up and love how quickly it dements the problem area.
Kiehl’s original lip balm is no ordinary balm. When the winter wind immediately starts drying out my lips I use this as a night time treatment as it rehydrates and works quickly to revitalize my chapped lips by morning. I also love the tube component option of this formula for travel and to keep in my car.
