Kiehls Skincare Review

Hey Beauties!

I’m been on a skincare kick lately and seeing that I ran out of my previous cleanser I decided to purchase some products from Kiehls. I have purchased from this brand before and really loved their products. I chose these products as they are new to me that I’ve never tried before.

They had a 20% off sale which apparently only happens twice a year, added bonus.



Kiehls Ultra Facial Cleanser

As per the website:

This specially formulated gentle foaming cleanser helps remove dirt and debris without over-drying or stripping skin. In addition to dissolving excess oil and dirt, this pH-balanced cleanser helps maintain skin’s natural balance. Formulated with Squalane, Apricot Kernel Oil, Vitamin E and Avocado Oil, our gentle face wash is suitable for all skin types.

• Gently cleanses without over-drying or stripping skin of its natural oils

• Helps dissolve excess oil, dirt and debris

• Formulated with Squalane, Apricot Kernel Oil, Vitamin E and Avocado Oil

• Tested for safety and gentleness

• pH-balanced

• For all skin types, including sensitive skin

• A customer favorite

Main Ingredients includes Squalane, Apricot Kernel Oil and Vitamin E.

Contains 150ml of product.


My Experience:

I love all packaging on Kiehls products as it’s simple, to the point and practical. I noticed I purchased their best sellers which is a good sign.

The first time I used this cleanser I dispersed way too much. You do not need a lot of product to cleanse and create foam. This will ensure my cleanser lasts longer which is value for money. I use this day and night and it ensures my natural oils are not stripped, my skin is thoroughly cleansed but feels hydrated and soft.

I would definitely repurchase this and recommend this to all skin types as it’s gentle enough yet effective for everyone.



Kiehls Ultra Facial Toner

As per the website:

Tone, comfort and hydrate skin with Kiehl’s gentle alcohol-free facial toner. Formulated with effective emollients like Squalane, Apricot Kernel Oil, Avocado Oil and Vitamin E, this gentle facial toner is pH-balanced for optimal comfort. Carefully formulated not to over-dry or strip skin of natural oils, this efficacious facial toner provides the ideal preparation for moisture. Soothe, tone and balance with Ultra Facial.

• Gently removes surface debris and remaining residue without stripping skin

• Helps refine skin texture

• Hydrates, comforts and tones skin

• Formulated with Squalane, Apricot Kernel Oil, Avocado Oil and Vitamin E

• Alcohol-free, pH-balanced

• For all skin types

Contains 250ml of product.


My Experience:

I use this after Cleansing with a cotton pad. This is an extra step I enjoy doing especially if I’ve worn makeup throughout the day. It hydrates my skin leaving it feeling very soft and deeply cleansed.


Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate

As per the website:

Our top-rated night facial oil is formulated with distilled botanicals including Lavender Essential Oil, Evening Primrose Oil and Squalane. In just one night, our top-rated facial oil helps replenish skin for visibly smoother, more radiant skin by morning.

• Visibly reduces fine lines, refines skin’s texture and boosts radiance in just one night

• Helps smooth and firm skin’s appearance

• Boosts essential moisture to help restore the appearance of tired-looking skin

• Replenishes skin at night when it is most receptive to repairing itself from daily aggressors

• Absorbs easily with a lightweight texture

• Leaves skin soft, supple and hydrated

Main Ingredients are Lavender Essential Oil, Evening Primrose Oil and Squalane.

How to apply:

• After cleansing skin, apply 2-3 drops of night facial oil into hands

• Gently press fingertips to cheeks, forehead and chin to evenly distribute before massaging into skin

• Can be worn alone or under a moisturizer

• Complete your nighttime skincare routine with our Midnight Recovery Collection, including our makeup-removing cleansing oil and eye cream for dark circles

Skin repairs itself nightly from daily aggressors that can cause premature aging. At night, when skin is most receptive to repair, our aromatic, indulgent night facial oil works with skin’s nocturnal functions to help restore and replenish skin.

My Experience:

This is my favorite product I purchased from Kiehls to date. Thankfully with the sale made it even mote worth purchasing this. The ingredients intrigued me and I love applying this at night to hydrate, moisturize and prevent aging. This has made a difference in my skin even in such a small amount of time. By morning my skin feels and appears hydrated and vibrant. I have not had any breakouts since using this, even when it’s that time of the month. The consistency is extremely lightweight and fast absorbing. Some oils I’ve tried in the past does not fully absorb into my skin as well as this does. It does not leave a residue or create a film that sits on my skin. Also this does not transfer onto my sheets and pillows while sleeping. This has improved my skin tone and texture leaving me with soft, supple skin.

I’ve tried the Midnight Recovery Eye Cream in the past and really love that for my dark circles and fine lines. I didn’t purchase that this time round as I have 3 eye creams to go through in the meantime.

I would definitely recommend this product to everyone. It’s a best seller for a reason.



Kiehls Daily Reviving Concentrate

As per the website:

Infused with Botanical Oils, this facial oil helps reduce the appearance of fatigue for energized, radiant skin. Infused with Ginger Root, Sunflower Oil and Tamanu Oil, this antioxidant serum helps skin look fresh and healthy-looking all day!

• Revitalizes skin to help correct the visible signs of fatigue for radiant, glowing skin

• Defends skin from free radicals with antioxidant protection

• Infused with a powerful blend of oils including Ginger Root, Sunflower and Tamanu

• Non-comedogenic, non-acnegenic

• For all skin types

Main Ingredients are Ginger Root Essential Oil, Sunflower Botanical Oil, Tamanu Botanical Oil.

My Experience:

Seeing that I purchased the Midnight Recovery Oil I asked what can be used during the day as my skin is very dry at the moment. The sales lady gave me this sample to try.

It’s honestly just as good as the Midnight Recovery Oil as it absorbs very quickly into my skin, extremely lightweight and I can see some results fast.

This can be worn under makeup and it does not disrupt or break up. Because it’s so lightweight and fast absorbing it does not disrupt other products applied on top of it.



Kiehls Lip Balm

Nourish and soothe dry lips with our moisturizing lip balm. Smooth on this balm to hydrate lips from dryness in the winter and around the year. A Kiehl’s classic since the 1960’s!

• Smoothes and moisturizes dry lips

• Formulated with Squalane, Aloe Vera, and Vitamin E

• Also available in Cranberry, Mint or Mango scented lip balms

• For lip care

Main Ingredients are Squalane, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E.

My Experience:

This lip balm reminds me Vaseline lip therapy. The consistency is lightweight yet moisturizing enough to keep my lips hydrated for an extended period of time. It prevents dryness and cracking and I love that it contains a squeeze tube.
