With this limited edition Christmas gift set, Kiehl’s promise to: “Give your skin all it deserves with the ultimate gift set of face care essentials”.
Now that the winter months are upon us, it’s time that I transition my beauty regime to suit the colder weather where dry, unloved skin seems ever present. Kiehl’s is the answer to all your troubles. Their Daily Ultra Facial Moisturizer leaves the skin feeling nurtured and nourished, enriched with vitamins A and Vitamin E and also imperata cylindrica (desert plant extract), which thrive in dry environments, it’s easily absorbed into dry, sensitive skin. For best results, apply in the morning and evening to sustain a moisture locked complexion, leaving skin feeling well balanced. Whilst The American cosmetics brand that specializes in premium skincare, is at the pricier end of the spectrum, and perhaps doesn’t cater for student budgets, it is an absolute must have to add to the Christmas list! With Kiehl’s stores open on both Northumberland and Blackett Street in Newcastle city center it is all the more tempting to get your hands on this lustful product.
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser works like any normal cleanser. Too reap the benefits of this glorious product, squeeze a pea sized amount into the palm of your hands, lather in a circular massage motion to cleanse the skin, focusing primarily on the T-zone, wash off with a washcloth and finish by patting the face dry. What makes this product different is that it the formula is gentle, it cleanses my skin without leaving any sign of tightness or dryness, an outcome that you should get from a cleanser. For those who are sensitive to scented cleansers then you will sure love this product.
A replenishing night time facial oil with distilled botanicals that visibly restores the appearance of skin before that morning lecture. When you’ve got those peepers closed and working with the skins natural nocturnal activity (when skin is much more receptive to repairing itself from daily aggressors), Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate restores and repairs healthy skin. Enriched with primrose oil (an effective radiance booster) and lavender oil which helps soothe inflamed skin, while helping to reduce any unwanted redness, the oil leaves you to awaken with smoother and plumper skin as well as maintaining hydration. What’s so special about this product is its nightime feature: it’s usually during the night that the skin repairs itself most effectively, so using a night care product that aims to boost the cell regeneration is a great idea. For best results, pop 2-3 drops of treatment onto freshly cleansed skin, evenly distributing the product, before working the product onto your skin in a circular motion.
Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate energizes the look of fatigued skin, making you look much more alert! So I’m talking about when you get to the end of the day and your skin just looks dull and in need of a bit of a boost, or in some cases in the morning after a long night. The oil “provides antioxidant protection with a powerful blend of naturally-derived oils, including Ginger Root, Sunflower and Tamanu, to help skin feel fresh and look energized morning to night”. For best results, lightly apply a few drops all over face, working into the skin in upward circular motion, avoiding the immediate eye area. Use every morning (a great base to use before the Ultimate Moisturizer), applying again in the evening for optimal results.
