Brand Focus: Kiehl’s Skincare

This year I vowed to stop
splashing out on highend lipsticks (which was ambitious, still splurging on
expensive lippies) and switch to spending more on skincare. 

Kiehl’s is the first
brand I looked into, it’s not affordable by any means but for the quality, I think the price is reflective. I started off with their Ultra Facial Cream – and now I have quite a collection.


I picked up the Calendula
facial wash back in September –
no other cleanser has had a look in since! This is a foaming cleanser, but don’t let that
put you off, teamed with the
Magnitone my skin feels like it’s had a good deep
clean and is refreshed, not dry or stripped of moisture. After cleansing I sweep the Calendula toner* all over my face with a cotton pad, these two products combined are perfect for anyone with oily skin. Since using this duo my skin hasn’t been producing as much oil throughout the day and has been
relatively clear of breakouts!


Ahh, the trusty Ultra Facial
Cream! This is the stuff that really got me into skincare – I’m on to my 3rd
pot! Back in January my skin was oily but so dehydrated, in serious need of something that would be moisturising without being greasy or too heavy. The
Ultra Facial Cream is just that – since using this my skin looks more plump and
fine lines have been settled. Keeping my skin moisturised and hydrated has also made my makeup look 10x better and last 10x longer, I’m use this cream religiously now. 


One of my all time favourite face masks and hardly anyone knows about it… When my skin is looking dull and dehydrated this is my go to. At first this tingles on the skin and feelings really cool and refreshing, after 15 minutes I tissue the excess product off and that’s it! In the morning my skin is less parched and looks more refined and glowy. I’ll definitely be repurchasing this when I run out.


Only recently have I
religiously been using an eye cream every morning and night. The Philosophy Take a Deep Breathe eye cream is my favourite for the morning as it absorbs
into the skin a little quicker – perfect for the morning rush. For the evening the
Creamy Avocado Eye Cream has become a firm favourite. I was intrigued when I saw Avocado, one of my favourite foods in my skincare? How? Honestly, when I first saw how
small the pot was I was a little disappointed, then I realised that a little
goes such a long way. This is so hydrating and like the Ultra Facial Cream – non greasy. Since using this my under eyes are much brighter and my concealer sits
a lot better without creasing. If you don’t already use an eye cream I would seriously consider


Last but not least, (at a more premium price point) is the Line Reducing Concentrate. This is essentially an anti aging product. Seems daft for me to be mentioning it considering I’m in my early 20’s, but I have really noticed some differences in my skin since using this. Used once a day for the past 3 and a half weeks, the fine lines on my forehead have pretty much gone! My skin is much softer and the overall appearance without makeup has become bearable. Obviously the products aforementioned have contributed to my new well behaved skin, but I can’t imagine my evening skincare routine without this serum! 

If you haven’t tried Kiehl’s
before I would recommend the Ultra Facial Cream out of all of these products. It
seems regardless of skin type this works for most people really helping to balance out the skin. I have the Midnight
Recovery Concentrate on my wishlist – currently kicking myself for not picking it up during
the 20% off they did during Black Friday!

    It's definitely worth spending more on skincare then it is on makeup sometimes, because at the end of the day you want the skin underneath the makeup to be well looked after. KIELHS is a brand I am eager to try out in the new year xBeauty with charm

    Lovely post! I've never tried anything from this brand as my budget is still in the drugstore. But after reading your thoughts on these products I'm definitely thinking of purchasing one or two products, particularly the Ultra Face Cream or the Masque. I've been wanting to invest a little bit more in my skincare as well so this post was incredibly helpful!-Sophie xx || Cherries and Perfume
