Summer has been here and made it’s 100 degree presence known all across Cali, Texas, and everywhere in between. So excited I was given the opportunity to try out some amazing skincare from Kiehl’s for their #HealthySkin campaign to keep my skin healthy and hydrated in any heat.
I have actually been a fan of Kiehl’s for a while. I regularly use their Ultra Facial Cleanser and have used their moisturizer in the past. I was most excited to try the avocado eye treatement! I’ve heard great things about it!
It’s summer and it has been scorching hot in L.A. My skin has definitely been on the dry side, but have been trying to combat it with enough water and sleep. Fortunately, these came right at the beginning of July for me to try out and thought I’d share my experience!
This cleanser in general is one of my favorites! I usually rotate my cleansers and this one is exceptional. It cleanses without stripping, and I always feel like my skin is balanced. I get a thorough clean without feeling dry and it’s just comfy. I don’t feel I immediately need to apply other products, so I can let my skin be by itself for a minute before I apply my other serums and creams. I also feel it is efficient at breaking down eye makeup. I usually use an eye makeup remover, (I had to try different variables to give fair feedback!) but I’ve noticed that when I skip that step and go straight for the cleanser, it does breakdown mascara well. I think that’s a major plus! It’s for all skin types, has vitamin E, and lasts FOREVER. A tiny bit goes a long way. I swear you won’t even go through half of it it in six months, and at $20 for 5 ounces, it’s definitely worth it. This is a great gift, too, because it’s great for anyone!
This is Kiehl’s #1 product for a reason! I’ve tried it once before, but years ago! I have to say I really love the lightweight and instantly hydrating texture of this moisturizer! It dries down in literally less than two minutes, instantly hydrating and leaves your skin plump, smooth, hydrated and just gorgeous. This is a great item for a makeup kit, too!! It’s great for summer! Only drawback during summer, is it doesn’t have SPF, but, it’s so lightweight and ultra hydrating and summer is a tricky time— it’s hot and that dehydrates your skin, but you don’t necessarily want a heavy cream because we tend to get a little oily during summer, I do at least —and so it makes a great nighttime moisturizer! I was using the 1.7 ounce morning and night and am a little low, probably have another week or two, and have ben trying to use it consistently over the past five weeks. For about a 6 week run for the 1.7 @ $29.50 and for the quality of the product, I gotta say it’s a steal. The product works. It’s great for all skin types. I will definitely be picking this up during the winter and next summer because my skin SOAKS it up! You can tell how hydrating it is literally within minutes. Again, great gift, and great for a stocking stuffer! Great job, Kiehls! <3
I had been wanting to try this for a while and so grateful this came in the package! First thoughts: super creamy, very hydrating and effective. It’s labeled as an eye treatment, so this is great if you’re eyes are super tired, super dehydrated (travel, holiday diet splurge, ahem, hangovers), or stressed out. It’s intensely hydrating so this is a great preventative eye treatment and also great for more mature skin or someone whose eyes, fine lines and puffiness are a concern. I will advise to warm up and work the product with your ring fingers on your ring fingers first before applying to the skin. I found tapping a tiny dab between fingers best, then lightly tapping onto the orbital bone instead of spreading/sliding it on the skin. It’s a very thick consistency, so do yourself the favor and tap it on. Trust me. Don’t fight your skin. Also… since it has shaebutter/avocado oil, it’s more of a buttery/oil consistency, so I found to let other serums completely dry or allow my skin and body to completely cool down and not have any sweat at all works best before applying it. The consistency didn’t really blend well if skin was glowing with sweat. SEE. GLOWING WITH SWEAT. Beuase I don’t sweat. I glow. I glisten. But seriously. It won't stick onto your skin if it's at all post-shower wet.
I’m so grateful to have received these items complimentary for testing purposes from Kiehl’s and Influenster for the Kiehl’s #HealtyhSkin campaign. Y’all know I love my skincare and my skin felt really taken care of with all of thseproducts which are great for all skin types and year round. I really hope you try them out! They are so good. I’d love to hear your feedback and what y’all think about the products!! #HealthySkin #Complimentary #Beauty #Skincare #Summer #Hydration
