First off, thanks for reading my first beauty blog! I decided to dedicate my first blog to Kiehl’s because I am so impressed by the products I have been using. I have sensitive skin and mild adult acne (usually a few pimples here and there). For both reasons I am very cautious when it comes to trying new products. My skin has been on the oily side for as long as I can remember. That started to change this past winter. My skin became super dry which caused me to have the worst breakouts since middle school! After a trip to the dermatologist and a few new products my skin went back to normal – stay tuned for another blog post!
On top of having sensitive skin I also have very sensitive eyes. I have tried multiple products that made my eyes to sting and turn red. I happened to stumble upon Kiehl’s through Instagram and I am SO happy I did! I purchased the Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment which quickly became one of my favorite products. It is super creamy and does not irritate my eyes. I am so impressed by how much the skin under my eyes has improved in the past few months. My skin is brighter, softer and it is so much easier to apply makeup under my eyes. I use the eye treatment every night after washing my face and using a toner. Sometimes I even put a drop in between my eyebrows because I tend to get a dry spot here. I think this is a product I will continue to use for a long time.
In addition to the eye treatment, I also purchased the Epidermal Re-Texturizing Micro-Dermabrasion. Those of you who struggle with acne may understand my frustration with post acne dark spots. I despise them! No matter the size of the pimple, I end up with a dark spot which may take a few months to fade. Once my breakouts had cleared up my dermatologist suggested I try micro-dermabrasion to fade my post acne marks. This treatment was a bit more expensive than I was ready to shell out and it seemed a little too abrasive for me. Instead, I purchased Kiehl’s Miro-Derabrasion treatment hoping for similar effects to those offered by my dermatologist. Since purchasing the product I have used it 1-2 times per week and have notice some skin improvement. To apply this product, I use a dime sized amount which I dot around my face, gently rub in outward circles as directed and rinse with warm water. The first application did feel a bit harsh, but my skin has adjusted to it. Overall, I think my dark spots have improved and this treatment definitely makes my skin very soft.
Has anyone tried these products? Let me know in the comment section!
