Treatments (Face) -Kiehl's -Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate

This product totally changed my skin for the better.

I apply it in the evening, after my cleansing routine and before my night moisturizer. It gives my skin a real boost : gives radiance, pores are minimized, skin looks more tight and healthier overall. The effects were visible after a few days of use.

One pump is sufficient for the entire face, so a bottle goes a long way. I must admit that most Kiehl’s products let me down and do not do that much for me, but this one is to keep.

Deodorants -Kiehl's -Superbly Efficient Anti-Perspirant and Deodorant Cream

foto

As a deodorant this is effective! I live in the warmest and probably most humid of climates (Florida) and this holds up for most of the day without me needing to re-apply. I do sweat a fair bit sometimes (more with emotional triggers than heat) and on a very bad day I can detect it has lost its power by the 9th hour or so, but this is quite rare. As a daily deodorant it is a good one.
First time I used this I squeezed some of the cream from the tube onto my fingers and applied (silly me lol) but then realized you only need to squeeze the tube whilst placing the opening against your underarms and roll it around to spread the liquid. It dries pretty fast too and doesn't have a noticeable fragrance, unless you sniff very closely.

I didn't notice any difference with lightening as some of the other reviewers noticed (I'm wiping it off on a night with a cleansing wipe and applying The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2%) as was hoping it might work in that sense too, especially when combined with The Ordinary. But I do have very stubborn dark patches that nothing seems to shift so for normal levels of darkness on underarms it may well do the trick!

Treatments (Eye) -Kiehl's -Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream

I bought this product because I'm currently living in a country where I don't have access to a lot of good skin care products, especially for any kind of a decent price. So I was visiting Bangkok for a weekend and decided to buy this at the Kiehl's store at the airport. I was actually pretty stupid and bought two jars of it. So I've been using this for a few months now and I'm currently on my second jar. I normally wait a while to write reviews anyway.

I can say with confidence that this cream has done absolutely nothing for me. Nothing. It goes on kind of greasy, but it's not moisturizing at all. It's a mystery. Some days I feel like I wake up with dryer skin under my eyes after using this cream. I can't finish this stuff fast enough, because I don't just want to throw money down the toilet. It's also absolutely horrible under makeup. When I'm putting on concealer, even with a good quality primer over this eye cream, it makes my concealer pill and go on very unevenly. I have tried it with different under eye products, with the same results. So when I'm not wearing makeup, I bathe in this stuff to finish it quickly and when I am wearing makeup, I use a different eye cream.

Honestly, do not bother with this cream. I wouldn't even pay $10 for this, or use it again if it were given to me for free.

Cleansers -Kiehl's -Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash

It’s okayish but no more. If I didn’t have any better options I’d use it but overall this cleanser isn’t even in my top 10. I think I’ll finish mine and forget about it forever.

I have a sensitive combination to dry skin and I sometimes find the deep cleansing wash to be drying. It doesn’t irritate my skin very noticeably but it’s nowhere near soothing either. I’m getting the impression that it does more harm than it helps.

Anyway, as it also doesn’t remove even light makeup and does absolutely nothing exceptional whatsoever I find no reason to justify the price tag. Really, I’ve tried more expensive cleaners that were worth it. This one just doesn’t. Korean $5 cleanser can do a better job than Kiehl’s Deep Cleansing Face Wash.

Lotions/ Creams -Kiehl's -Creme de corps soy milk and honey whipped body butter

on 9/20/2018 8:16:00 AM

This is one of those products that I at some point convinced myself that I loved, despite the mostly underwhelming results.

Let's start off with some positives, though: I really do like the scent, it's sweet but not in way that gives me flashbacks to my preteen in 2000 days. It does have some staying power, though, so you'll smell vaguely like a grown up baked good, if you will, for a few hours. The whipped texture is very nice, and in the winter, when my skin is as dry as humanly possible, it does sometimes do a decent job.

Now, all that being said. While the whipped texture is pleasant, it takes absolute ages to get it to sink in, no matter how much or how little product I'm trying to work in. On that note, in general, I feel like this lotion takes longer to absorb (if it even does absorb, on a few occasions, I've given up and sort of dabbed my skin with a towel to get rid of the that tacky white cast) than almost any other lotion I've tried. I also don't think that I have been overwhelmed with the moisturizing qualities. I usually shower at night and therefore would put lotion on after that, and sometimes when I wake up in the morning, my skin feels dry again. In the winter, I'm not annoyed by this as much, but in the spring/early fall, I'd rather not have to be constantly slathering myself with cream. I have also tried it out overnight on my feet with socks, and honestly, it doesn't do as much as I feel it should. I have had much better results with other lotions/creams etc.

And then, as has become the norm in basically every review I've written: rage against the tub. Listen, I know that they are the best containers for various products/textures/things, and I don't know how you would coax a whipped body butter up through a pump, but I really just hate things in tubs (I realize this is where I should probably vow to stop buying them, but...). I mind it less with lotions for my body, than say, my face, but still. This cream in particular (body butter, I suppose, to be most accurate), really is a pain to get off my hands/out from under my nails etc. Due to the difficulties I've had getting it to absorb, the usual method of just rubbing it into my hands isn't the most effective.

To summarize, I still have a pretty full container of this (my second), and I'll use it up, because it is on the pricier side. After that, however, I don't plan to repurchase.
