Kiehl's Made Better
This post contains a paid for advertorial in collaboration with Kiehl's.
Do you know what's in your skincare? We spend so much time, effort and money on ensuring our skin is hydrated, plumped, cleansed, peeled and generally taken care of but do you know what you're putting on your skin and where those ingredients are sourced?
Cue Kiehl's newest naturally derived launches - the Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask and the Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream. Two new additions that have been added to my pre-wedding skincare routine because of their ability to boost the skin's barrier and leave it feeling renewed. I adore products that leave my skin feeling moisturised, radiant and glowing without feeling heavy or clogging my pores - these two tick all of those boxes for me.
Here's a look at why you might want to try out these new releases before anyone else and which naturally derived ingredients are behind their powerful and targeted results.
If you didn't previously know what was in your skincare, you'll be happy to know now. AND be sure to read to the bottom of the post - as you might find a cheeky voucher for a gift with purchase!
Guys... an avocado mask! I mean could this be anymore suited to me? I feel like it's been created with me in mind, and as soon as I had the opportunity to test it out, I knew I'd be adding it into my skincare routine. Even better when used over avocado toast for breakfast while travelling in Paris - heaven! The Kiehl's Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask has been formulated to give skin a boost of hydration and to leave it feeling gorgeously smooth. With avocado fruit extract for moisturisation, avocado oil rich in omega fatty acids to calm and replenish the skin's barrier, and cold-pressed evening primrose oil to improve skin's quality with use. A trio of ingredients that ensure your skin is instantly boosted and energised. The one thing I can't stress enough, is how much this genuinely feels and looks like a fresh jar of smashed avocado. You'd be forgiven for thinking I'd actually used my avocado toast for these images and not the Nourishing Hydration Mask. You have to try this to believe just how incredible it leaves your skin feeling and just why it's been travelling with me for an extra boost of natural hydration recently. And if you really want to double up on amazing avocado goodness, I'd highly suggest teaming it with the tried and true Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment that also harnesses the power of avocado.
SKIN RENEWING CREAM
Meet Kiehl's Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream made with sustainably sourced Maori family-owned, New Zealand Manuka honey. Housed in an incredibly clever dispensing container that helps to protect the product and increase the longevity of the ingredients, the cream feels silky smooth, with a texture almost like creamy honey itself. Created with 99.6% naturally derived ingredients, the facial cream can be used both morning and night and is clinically proven to nourish, replenish and moisturise while skin appears more radiant and glowing. The ideal combination of results from a cream created with radiance in mind. As well as Manuka honey (certified for purity and potency) that's packed with anti-oxidants to fortify the skin's barrier, you'll also find Korean Red Ginseng Root, that aids with smoothing and radiance. A trailblazing product from Kiehl's (I adore the container and would love all my products to be protected this way!) that will fast become a best seller and holy grail item for many, I'm sure of it. Perfect applied in circular motions after warming between the fingers, to really feel it melting into the skin and the naturally derived ingredients starting to nourish. I've loved using this before travel when I know my skin will need some extra love and I've found that despite being such a light formula, it's rich enough to really make a huge difference to my often travel weary, dull skin.
CALENDULA & ALOE
SOOTHING HYDRATON MASQUE
I couldn't miss the opportunity to let you know about a few more Kiehl's products I've had in my skincare routine recently and especially because of how much I've fallen in love with the Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque. If you're looking for a mask that feels gel like, hydrating and also calming on the skin, then this product is the one for you. I've had a few nightmare skin issues over the past few weeks and when that happens I always go back to basics to almost revitalise and refresh my skin. When it needs more than the basics, I've been confident that the aloe vera, calendula petals and soothing gel will hydrate, calm and not irritate my skin. The ideal end of day mask that leaves skin feeling unbelievably fresh.
DEEP PORE CLEANSING MASQUE
Did you know that the Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque has been released in a limited edition version in partnership with the one and only John Legend? Made with ethically sourced Amazonian White Clay and Aloe Barbadensis (also know as Aloe Vera in other forms) to soothe, minimise pores and leave skin with a refined texture. This mask is the type of product that you can actively feel working as you leave it to dry after application and then remove with a warm, damp towel. You'll be left with skin that feels like it's been reset (for lack of a better word) and free of the impurities that your skin was holding onto. The ultimate in cleansing and even better this limited edition reincarnation also benefits a Kiehl's partner charity. Doing good while feeling good - love it!
MADE FOR ALL
GENTLE BODY CLEANSER
Before Alex steals this for good and it permanently ends up with his shower things instead of mine, meet Kiehl's Made For All Gentle Body Cleanser. A biodegradable body wash, gentle enough for face, body and hair making it ideal for travel and also dermatologist, paediatrician (suitable for ages 3+) and ophthalmologist tested. Made with 95% naturally derived products (I can see a wonderful pattern emerging here) including aloe vera and soap tree extract, it's like no full body product I've ever used before. Refreshing, cleansing and invigorating, the gel formula foams but doesn't leave skin feeling dry or dehydrated like I find most do. Made for all skin types, this is a beautiful more natural alternative to your old cleansers and body washes.
