One of my “beauty resolutions,” if you like was to invest in some better skincare in 2016. I’ve discovered that no matter how much I spend on makeup if my skin isn’t in the best condition then it is going to be a waste of money. On the hunt for a moisturiser that works well for dehydrated but oily skin I was having a moan on twitter looking for something new to try, the lovely Lily from pintsizedbeauty recommended Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream, after a little investigate online I decided I needed to give it a go.
The first thing I noticed when I tried this on my hand was the texture, this cream is so light weight and almost gel like making it absorb within a few seconds, instantly it reassured me this is just what my skin needed. As soon as I used this my skin felt a lot less tight and uncomfortable, and after a week of use my makeup has never looked better. My skin was so dehydrated it was starting to become slightly flaky, even after I had used this once that started to clear up.
I have blemish prone skin so whenever I introduce a new product into my skincare routine I’m slightly anxious I’m going to end up breaking out, but this has been perfect and if anything helped clear things up! Another issue is how oily my skin is, but this product hasn’t made my skin any oiler at all. One thing I do wish is if this was in a pump form rather than a pot, but I get around that by using a cotton bud rather than sticking my fingers in.
After looking into Kiehl’s as a brand more I have really fallen in love with their values and the products they have, I can’t wait to try some more of their skincare, I think next up will be the midnight recovery concentrate. The is the moisturiser everyone needs in their stash for the cooler months, it is so hard to avoid dehydrated skin in the winter but I think this will be everyone’s little saviour!
Have you tried any Kiehl’s products or have a skincare essential for dehydrated skin?
