There are many skincare ranges out there - I should know, I've probably tried most of them over the years... I know everyone's skin is different so it can feel like a real triumph when you find the skincare brand that suits your skin. I feel quite lucky that my blog has introduced me to a skincare range that I truly believe in and can see the benefits from.
I first discovered Kiehl's last year and their Midnight Recovery concentrate is now a firm fixture in m night time routine. My next addition was their Ultra Facial Cream, a lovely lightweight moisturiser which I use daily.
However, last month was super hectic... My sister and one of my close friends got married, there were Hen do's and family meals to attend, plus work was busy-busy as usual... Unfortunately, by the end of October this had taken it's toll on my skin and I was feeling slightly run down! Every pore on my oily-combination skin was crying out for help and my usual skin care routine just wasn't cutting it.
Luckily, Kiehl's were on hand to help! Just by chance, the brand have just launched their new range of targeted spot treatments...
Details: Breakout Control Blemish Treatment Lotion, Blemish Control Targeted Treatment, Epidermal Re-texturising Micro-dermabrasion, Multi-corrective Cream, Midnight Recovery Concentrate, Rosa Arctica Eye Cream
So let me talk you through my current skin care routine!
Day Time: The breakout control Facial Lotion has replaced my usual light moisturiser. This lotion is hydrating, but non-greasy. It helps to fight spots without drying out your skin. This is fine for day to day use.
For targeted treament, there is the Kiehl's spot cream (handily called the Targeted Spot Treatment!)
Both of these creams are lovely and lightweight. I wouldn't say that they are super strong - you would need to allow 2-3 days to see visible results. That said, I they do definitely work without drying out your skin.
To work alongside these, I recently treated myself to the Kiehl's microdermabrasion treatment. I find that the cause of my spots is often dead skin, make up clogging my pores and generally large pores. The microdermabrasion treatment can be used 2-3 times a week and helps to refine your skins surface - even claiming to get reduce fine lines and wrinkles! Win win. I find that this really helps freshen up my skin!
Just be warned, it can leave you looking fairly pink after use so maybe warn your other half before you use this one!
Once the Breakout facial lotion starts to do its job, you may find that you need a heavier moisturiser to hydrate and plump your skin. I am currently trying the multi-corrective cream which aims to smooth and retexturise skin. As I'm nearing my next birthday, I'm interested to see who this one works out...!! So far, it goes on really nicely. It is much richer than the Ultra Facial Cream (which is my all time fave) so I often use it in the evening after I've applied my Midnight Recovery concentrate.
If there's one product I would highly recommend, it would be this serum! You can literally wake up and see the results! I'm on my second bottle and have just ordered the matching eye cream!
If you're interested in trying any of these products then head over to Kiehl's now to save 20% off in the Black Friday sale!
