Lovely Review: New Kiehl's Products

Are you also on the hunt for the one product that makes your skin absolutely flawless? I am, and this is why I love to test new skin care products, always in the hope they might beat everything I've known before. For the last two weeks, I tried three new products from Kiehl's – a face cream, a cleanser and an eye serum – and I'm happy to share my experience with you.

Face cream and cleanser are from Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Collection, which promises to reveal a more radiant and luminous skin, correct dark spots and provide a more even skin tone. All products of this collection are free of parabens and fragrance.

When I got the products I was a little bit surprised: According to the packaging, both cleanser and cream are developed and tested for Asian skin. Not my skin type, even if I am a big love of Asian fashion. Because I have sensitive and bright skin I thought they might work for me as well. Let's see what Clearly Corrective can do for non-Asian skin!

Kiehl's Clearly Corrective White Purifying Foaming Cleanser

The packaging says: A gentle foam cleanser for day and night use. It removes makeup and impurities without stripping. This cleanser makes the skin look more radiant and banishes discolourations.

My opinion: A small amount of it is enough to have fresh and clean skin. I use it together with my Clarisonic brush in the eve, and I like that it doesn't leave me with itchy skin. It has a very subtle smell and a nice consistency. My skin looks brighter but not shiny after using it. Thumbs up!

Kiehl's Clearly Corrective White Deep Moisture Clarifying Cream

The packaging says: This cream claims to be lightweight, and a quickly absorbed moisturiser that will improve the clarity of the skin while providing a 24-hour hydration for instant luminosity and skin uniformity. It helps you to fight uneven skin tones and dark spots.

My opinion: After applying it my skin truly feels refreshed and moisturised. The good feeling stays for the whole day. There are two little minus points: The first is the rather strange flowery-wooden smell (coming from the white birch in it). After a few days, I got used to it. Anyway, my skin likes this cream, and that's more important than what my nose says. The second minus point is that it comes in a pretty jar, but unfortunately without a spatula. I used one I already had and recommend you to do the same due to hygienic reasons.

I will continue to use it and probably buy it again. While I can't say that my skin pigmentation changed dramatically, I think it keeps my dry skin very well hydrated without making it greasy. This cream is almost half as expensive as the one I usually use, which makes it even more attractive... There is no UV protection included, so don't forget to add additional suncream if you decide to give it a try!

Kiehl's Super Multi-Corrective Eye-Opening Serum

The packaging says: A 5-in-1 solution for your eyes: It lifts, firms, smooths, hydrates and restores the youthful shape of the eyes. According to their tests, 95% of women showed a significant improvement in eye-opening.

My opinion: While I am a true expert when it comes to eye creams, this is my first eye serum. It feels very lightweight, and I miss a little bit the nourishing effect my eye cream has. It's no problem to apply makeup over it, and this makes it a good product during daytime. I think I'll continue to use this for the day, but use it under my eye cream for the night for an extra strong effect. While I think it's not a miracle, it's far better than many eye creams I tried and worth a try.

All products and more skin care available at Kiehl's.
Have a happy day and don't forget to treat your skin well.

I tested this products for two weeks. Other skin care products I used during this time: Shiseido Ibuki Softening Concentrate, Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate, Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream Plus SPF50
