Ever since I discovered Kiehl’s over a year ago, it has had a constant presence in my skin-care routine. I love trying out Kiehl’s products, and it is one of my favorite skin care brands to date. Today I am so exited to share with you my favorite Kiehl’s products, and to give one hamper filled with those goodies away to one reader! This is all part of the Kiehl’s Pioneers By Nature campaign, a program that honors innovators, game changers and trendsetters who are pioneering new ways of viewing and experiencing the world today.
You can read a little bit more about the campaign and Kiehl’s history over here, and get to know my 2 chosen Pioneers over here. But before we even get into the products, I wanted to share the Pioneer in my life- a person that helped pave the way my life is going, inspired me, and was a trailblazer for me. Of course that person is my mother, who has inspired me continuously over the years. She completed her degree in Electrical Engineering, which pushed me to get my degree in Mathematics, she is a successful writer, which inspired me to channel my creativity into this blog, and she is overall an amazing human, whom I look up to each and single day!
My Pioneer is my mother, but who is the pioneer in your life?
Lets chat a bit about the products before we get into that!
The Super Multi-Corrective Cream(RSP R715)
This is my ultimate Kiehl’s product, and you can believe me when I say it, because this is one of the rare products that I actually managed to finish! As a beauty blogger, I very seldom finish a whole full-size jar of moisturizer, but this little gem blew me away! Even though this is technically an anti-aging moisturizer, I didn’t use it for those benefits (although they do help of course).
The Super Multi-Corrective Cream is enriched with Jasmonic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid and Beech Tree Extract, it corrects the appearance of key visible signs of aging, reduces wrinkles, and your skin feels firmer as if it was lifted. The texture of your skin also looks refined and more “glow-y”, if I can put it that way. I used it every morning in conjunction with the Hydro Pumping Serum (more on that later), and it was a real winner for me, especially during the winter months! It really made my skin feel healthy, it absorbs quickly and nourishes the skin with moisture. It has a very slight herbal scent to it, and all together this is an amazing moisturizer, and I would re-purchase it over and over.
Hydro Plumping Re-Texturing Serum Concentrate(RSP R625)
I’ve mentioned here before, that people always get confused about what hydration in your skin really means.You keep your body hydrated by drinking lots of water, but what about your skin? Even if you have an oily skin, your skin can still suffer from a lack of hydration! Hydration is responsible for making your skin look plump, smooth and beautifully textured. This product is very heavily based on Glycerin- a renowned skincare ingredient that works as a moisture magnet and pulls essential moisture into skin. It is highly compatible with skin and also creates a “reservoir effect”, enhancing the water-holding capacity of the skin and ultimately helping to provide skin elasticity and plumpness and facilitates epidermal barrier function. Due to the heavy contains of Glycerin, you will notice that the texture of the serum is very glycerin-like, but that doesn’t stop the serum from being absorbed into the skin very quickly and easily.
I always used it on conjunction with the Super Multi-Corrective Cream, and together they make a mean duo! This product also has a lot of anti-aging benefits in it, and it is quite literally like a glass of water for your face!
Midnight Recovery Concentrate(RSP R710)
I’ve raved about this product here before, and I still have only the kindest words for it. It has gotten me through two very dry Jozi winters, and there is still even a third of it left! The Midnight Recovery Concentrate is replenishing nighttime facial oil with distilled botanicals that visibly restores the appearance of skin by morning. It smells like Lavender Oil and for a good reason, this product is enriched with it! Lavender Oil helps to soothe inflamed or irritated skin while helping reduce skin blotchiness for a more even look.
It also has extracts of Evening Primrose Oil that boosts the skins radiance, and Squalane, a botanical lipid that is similar in molecular structure to natural skin lipids. It has an exceptional affinity to skin, and because it’s easily absorbed, Squalane helps restore skin’s natural moisture balance to keep it extra soft and supple. Just a few drops a night is enough to get your skin look great!
Actively Correcting And Beautifying BB Cream(RSP R525)
I love BB Creams for spring and summer, as that is when I let my skin be free and breathe as much a possible. The Kiehl’s BB Cream is a dual-action formula that instantly conceals imperfections with lightweight, buildable coverage and visibly corrects the appearance of skin tone irregularities on a daily basis. It is formulated with a high level of Vitamin C that is known for its affinity with skin and its powerful ability to improve the appearance of skin aging. The coverage it gives is very, very light and it does have a slight medicinal smell to it that disappears the moment you blend it into your skin. The great advantage of this BB cream is that it contains an SPF50, and in this South African sun this is the minimum coverage that you need!
