When Kiehl’s set up a 20% discount pop-up in your office for one day only it would be rude not to buy anything, right? I’ve never tried anything from Kiehl’s before but I’ve heard great things about their face masks. It turns out I happened to be in the market for a new facial wash and eye cream so this seemed as good an opportunity as any to try something new.
After a couple of days I can confidently say that I lovelovelove the Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser. It has an iridescent look to it and has a creamy consistency. Unlike other cream facial washes I’ve used, it doesn’t just turn to foam it stays creamy without being slippery. When I rinse it off it actually makes my face squeak because it’s that clean, and it feels so soft. It helps keep my skin matte which is really needed at the moment as I’m trying to air out my skin by not wearing foundation.
I’m not going to lie here; the words ‘Younger looking eyes by morning’ on the front of the Midnight Recovery Eye cream made it mighty tempting to buy. I’ve been using The Body Shop’s Aloe Vera Eye Defence for the last few weeks but it is quite light and doesn’t really feel like it’s sinking in. This one from Kiehl’s is much thicker and I don’t feel like I have to use as much, but at the same time it doesn’t feel like it’s too heavy. It says it’s fragrance free but I think it has a faint lavender smell which is quite pleasant. It’s too early to tell if it’s getting rid of my dark circles but I’ve got my fingers crossed!
Have you tried anything from Kiehl’s?
