Brand Focus: Kiehl's

Brand Focus: Kiehl's

Kiehl's was one of those brands that I was first introduced to through blogging and their products have  since made a welcome addition to my bathroom cabinet. Their quirky packaging design, fun store displays and lab coat-wearing 'Mr Bones' make it challenging to walk past a Kiehl's store and not step in for a browse. Because I'd noticed that a lot of their products had crept into my daily skincare routine, I decided I should do a post highlighting all that I've thoroughly tried and tested from Kiehl's and what I made of them as a brand. 

The Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser (£18) is a gently exfoliating mask-like cleanser that's great for combination or acne-prone skin. The white clay formula helps to draw out excess oil and leaves the face feeling extremely soft and clean, although be warned that it's a little on the drying side so moisturising afterwards is a must. Next up is my favourite of the bunch and a well deserving cult beauty product: Midnight Recovery Concentrate (£36). I wrote a more in depth review on this bad boy here, but in short you can expect firmer, fuller, more moisturised skin after just one use. Not only does it work wonders, but its lavender oil scent is so soothing before bed. I got the Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash (£22) for Christmas, which in hindsight was probably the wrong time of year to try it out because this is yet another drying cleanser. This meant that I really didn't get on with it at first and it dried out my skin immediately. Now that it's warmer and my skin's retaining a bit more moisture and producing more oil (nice), I decided to let bygones be bygones and give this face wash another go. It's now the perfect daily cleanser for my combination skin. The Super Multi-Corrective Cream (£48) is by far and away the most expensive of the lot but is a real hit with my mother. I'm outside the target demographic for this one, but I've noticed how on her it gives instant results and visibly firms the skin, reducing the appearances of lines and wrinkles. It's an extremely thick moisturiser, so I like to use this around my eyes or on any dry patches after cleansing in the morning. Finally there's the Creme de Corps (£16-27), which I've only ever tried a sample of but is one of Kiehl's best sellers. It's an extremely thick moisturiser that works a treat straight after showering. It may smell a little funky but the results really show, particularly on dry elbows and knees.

I've far from tested every product Kiehl's has to offer, but from what I have I can say it's a brand I'd love to try more from; they basically do exactly what they say they will without a load of irritating chemicals or perfumes. My mum and sister are now also proud Kiehl's converts, both hailing the Midnight Recovery Concentrate as a miracle worker.

Have you tried anything from Kiehl's?
