Scrubs -Kiehls - Kiehls Papaya and Pineapple Face Scrub

This is a regular part of my skincare routine. Just like everyone says, leave it on a bit while you're in the shower and let it do its work. Definitely a gentle way to exfoliate on a regular basis when you aren't interested in bringing out the big guns (see reviews for Kiehl's Microdermabrasion product if you think this one is too wimpy for your need!). Very helpful as part of a pre-shave routine for close comfortable shaving!

The slippery slick feeling as you apply this product is actually a plus in my book. It has a distinct scent, though not one I find unpleasant. However, I could imagine it initially clashing with some perfumes immediately after application. But the smooth skin feeling you get afterwards, and for quite a long time, too, is well worth it. In the summer I like this on my feet to address any dry, rough areas I may be exposing.

As a runner, it is great to find a product that soaks in instantly and stays put through vigorous activity. However, that instant application also means that there's practically no time to spread the product around and you have to spritz quite a bit to get coverage. Spraying gently and closing my eyes, I can even apply this to my face without discomfort and have had no problems with excessive oiliness or breakouts. Admittedly, I do use this product more in the summer when I expect to be a bit shiny to begin with due to the weather in my area, but still a great product!

This is a great scrub that really does leave your face feeling brand new. For me, it's not even necessary to use the recommended Centella salve afterwards--but I'm definitely not one of the folks here with super-sensitive skin. I must admit, I don't use this scrub too often, I just get samples each time I'm buying something else at Kiehl's, often before a big event where I want to really have a great glow going.

I've only tried this in sample size as recommended with the microdermabrasion sample I received. This is a *very* rich cream that probably would would wonders for someone with irritated skin. As I have pretty durable combination male skin, it's actually a bit rich for me. Even though I'm a huge Kiehl's fan, this is one of the few I would not buy again. Not because of the product itself, but because it's not appropriate for my skin type. But it's good to know it will protect you from the Toronto winters! :^)
Treatments -Kiehls - Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate

I've been using this product for months and love it on my combination skin. I marvel each time I apply it that my shiny-ish nose gets *less* shiny upon application--an unheard of experience for me. There is also a very gentle tightening (not drying!) feeling upon application. It doesn't spread perfectly for me, an even the tiniest drop of water on my face really facilitates application. Used in conjunction with the other Dermatologist's Solutions products, I think you have a very effective regime to exfoliate and improve skin tone and appearance. My one caveat is that I suspect these products are all fairly strong, and may not be the best for very sensitive skin, but that's just a suspicion.
