Trusted Kiehl’s To Treat My Thirsty, Hyperpigmented skin
Trusted Kiehl’s To Treat My Thirsty, Hyperpigmented skin
Kiehl's - Daily Reviving Concentrate If I can only pick 1 brand of skincare to use my entire life, it would be Kiehl’s. I’ve been a fan for years now since I’ve laid my hands on that blue bottle of midnight recovery serum. I’ve tried a number of their products and my skin just loves it.   This Daily Reviving Concentrate has the same consistency as the Midnight Recovery Serum- it’s light, just a tad thicker than water. I use this in the morning to treat my thirsty skin after I double cleanse my face, and after applying toner and essence.   I particularly love that it’s hydrating but it doesn’t leave my face oily. I can instantly feel its moisturizing properties but it’s not too much so as to leave my face greasy. It’s a good makeup base as it leaves a bit of a glow to my skin. Sometimes I like putting a teeny weeny drop on the side of my eye - the area where you normally apply highlighter - to highlight the high points of my face. I do that when I don’t have a foundation on, which is literally every day now because of the lockdown. I swear by this product.   Kiehl's - Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution I suffer from hyperpigmentation because I liked suntanning until about 4 years ago. Back then, I didn’t know that the sun rays would give me sun spots even if I wear SPF.   Fast forward to today, I have learned my lesson and I try to stay out of the sun as much as I could. I love tanning so I just use self tanning products to fake a glow.   Due to my sun frolicking days, I developed a bit of sun spots on my cheeks. I combat these by using products with vitamin C or niacinamide. I particularly love this dark spot solution from Kiehl’s as it has a mixture of different acids that help in brightening the pigmentation, plus it’s gentle. I have sensitive skin so it’s really easy for me to feel a slight tingling sensation when I use products with acids or vitamin C but this product is so gentle that I didn’t feel anything the first time I applied it.   I have seen some improvements on the uneven texture of my face. The pigmentation on my cheeks have since lightened a bit. I also love the smell of this serum. It feels like I’m in a spa whenever I put it on my face. Definitely a must try if you’re looking for something gentle to treat your hyperpigmentation.

I have yet to try the eye treatment and the dark spot corrector, but I tried the cleanser and so far it's nice, but I need to use it more times to see if there's any affects.

Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cleanser Our face requires more delicate care, so it is important to remember that specific products for this region bring smoother substances in the formula. I love Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser because its gentle formula is packed with natural nutrients coming from Avocado Oil, Apricot Kernels, and Squalane all of which help to keep our skin healthy, clean, and moisturized without over-drying or stripping it. Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream Sometimes the weather can be pretty harsh on our skin, and if you have dry skin like me, then you know how important it is to have a facial cream incorporated into your skincare routine. I started using Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream a couple of weeks ago, and almost immediately I could see the difference. Over the last couple of weeks, my skin has become much softener, smoother, and I haven't noticed any dry spots on my chicks anymore. Kiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado Kiehl's - Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution I also love Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment and their Corrective Dark Spot Solution. I confess that I had never used any eye cream or dark spots treatments before, but I am so glad I incorporated these into my skincare. I love that Kiehl's eye treatment is non-greasy, and does not irritate my eyes. It does a great job of keeping my eyes hydrated, and it has helped me to reduce my dark circles as well. Now the Corrective Dark Spot Solution is also a great skincare product. This serum has helped me reduce post-acne marks, which is a great deal for me! I love that it has been tested on all ethnicities and is suitable for all skin types. Keep in mind that your skincare routine does not need to be boring, and makes you feel as if it is an obligation. For example, I love to do my skincare while enjoying a nice cup of coffee in the morning, and at night I do it while I watch my favorite cartoons. Take it easy, and if you forget to do it one day, or even a couple of days, please don't go hard on yourself.

1.fresh - Sugar Face Polish Exfoliator Sugar Face Polish is one of the best face polishes around. It does an excellent job for acne skin, and it smells so good. I've been so impressed by this product. I feel so pampered when I use it. I recently tried a few other polishes because I had some samples, but it's clear to me that this is the best one. It's also the most enjoyable to use because of the scent of strawberry and brown sugar. I use the Face Polish a few times a week especially when I have some breakouts. Sometimes I use it on a soft net puff and massage it over my face. It only takes a very small amount, because it slides around all over my skin. YOU DO NOT NEED TO COVER YOUR ENTIRE FACE WITH THIS. THAT WOULD BE VERY WASTEFUL AND EXPENSIVE. YOU ONLY NEED TO MOVE A VERY TINY BIT AROUND, AND THE POLISH DOES THE REST. I probably use about half a teaspoon worth of polish, and that's enough to do my entire face. On occasion, I massage the polish around my face with my fingers in a circular motion, but I usually don't have time to do it that way. The net puff or the Clarisonic is much faster although using my fingers gives excellent results. No matter which way I use it, it cleans and/or clears my pores of any environmental toxins or impurities, and leaves my skin feeling and looking fresh and dewy. Although my skin is normal, this is ideal for people with oily skin, as it gets rid of the excess oiliness, and it's perfect for people with dry skin, as it gets rid of dead skin (cells). This is such a pampering way to treat skin issues. To try to help end some confusion and misconceptions as indicated by comments made in some of the previous reviews, this is not straight sugar and strawberries. Brown sugar and strawberry ingredients are mixed with hydrating oils which work as emollients so that you can move the polish around. (All scrubs have some sort of product which acts as a lubricant of sorts so that the exfoliating part of the scrub/polish can slide around). This specific Sugar Face Polish scrub contains "Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Macadamia Seed Oil, Hazel Seed Oil, Plum Extract, Grape Seed Oil, and Mango Seed Oil" which allow the polish to slide around on your face and are all excellent for your skin. Those oils in the Sugar Facial Polish provide hydration for skin, no matter what your skin type. When you finish with the polish, the oil, which is good for all skin types, leaves the skin adequately hydrated and soft. The oils, sugar, and strawberries that you've been pushing around on your face are all discarded. Without these oils, the scrubs would be rough on the skin, which is why all scrubs have some sort of liquid as a base. A good scrub like this one should not leave skin oily, and should not create problems for oily skin (which is another misconception noted in a couple of the reviews). And once again, with Fresh Sugar Face Polish, you don't need a huge amount - a little bit goes a very long way. This is a phenomenal face polish. Fresh Sugar Face Polish is truly the best. The results are well worth it. You should see almost immediate results and your skin will look better and better as it over the long run. I love this face polish. 2.Kiehl's - Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution As a product that delivers a high level of vitamin C, Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution is truly unique. Everyone who’s a skincare nerd knows that while vitamin C is one of the best skin-brightening ingredients in the market, it is also highly unstable because it oxidizes easily. As such, you may have noticed that most vitamin C serums are housed inside dark bottles to reduce sun exposure to keep them usable for a longer time. My first impression of the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution was good. I liked that the texture was lightweight enough to be absorbed quickly while allowing me to layer on other products without any problem. The serum also comes with a subtle lavender scent that I didn’t expect, but was happy to have. While most vitamin C serums may give a bit of a stinging or warm sensation on the skin, the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution felt very comfortable and gentle. And unlike a lot of skin brightening products out there that tend to dry out the skin, this serum doesn’t, which is an attribute that I really appreciated since I have rather dry skin. After using it for about two weeks, I noticed that the dark spots on my nose, which are the most obvious ones (for me) have started to look less obvious. The ones on my cheeks were not as obvious, to begin with, so it wasn’t easy to note any improvements within two weeks. However, seeing how it had already helped fade some spots on the nose, I’m quite confident that it can help to deliver even more positive results if I continue using it. I will certainly recommend this product to those who suffer from hyperpigmentation, and are looking to even out their complexion, or want to regain radiance in their complexion. 3.The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion First of all: The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion doesn’t have a pleasant scent. But it’s so faint, I can easily put up with it. Actually, I’d easily put up with it even if it stank badly because this stuff does some amazing things to my skin. To be honest, I am a bit hesitant to try any retinoids at this time of the year. Now the temperatures are dropping fast, my skin tends to get drier and retinoids can dry it out even more. That’s what happened last winter. This time, there was absolutely no dryness or irritation. I can use this serum every other day and get smoother and glowing skin without the side effects. It’s so gentle, I suspect I could use it daily. Ok, maybe if your skin is super super super sensitive, there may still be a tiny chance that it’ll bother your skin, but it’s definitely the gentlest retinoid serum I’ve ever tried. Yet, it works as well as all the other harsher retinoid serums. My skin now looks plumper. Its texture is smoother and more even-toned. It has a subtle glow to it. These are the immediate results. After a few weeks (that’s how long it takes retinoids to work their magic on wrinkles), the serum also starts to target the signs of aging, such as wrinkles and dark spots, and make them smaller. Basically, it does everything a good retinoid serum should do. Minus the irritation. And the high price tag. Who Is This For? Acnes-prone skin Retinol newbies Sensitive skin Who Is This NOT For? If you’re using 1% retinol or prescription retinoids, this is a step back. Pregnant or breastfeeding women 4.#LANCÔME - UV EXPERT youth shield[products]# It's the last step I use for my skincare when I have breakouts, no make-up further. This sunscreen is my favorite, new, discovery of this year so far. It is very pleasing to use, and I’m sure many of you will appreciate it. It’s from the higher price shelf, one of the priciest sunscreens I have used in a while, but it feels luxurious on the skin.  This product is quite impressive; it is supposed to hydrate, mattify, and protect from pollution by preventing particles from adhering to the skin. And I agree that it does the first two; I am not sure about the last one as I have no way of testing it. It prevents skin hyperpigmentation and sun-induced damage as it fights against UVB and long & short waves of UVA. It’s non-greasy &-sticky. Also, it was developed and tested on Asian skin, and it’s suitable for sensitive skin. That’s all the information available on the box. For me, it’s crucial that sunscreen doesn’t make me look greasy as soon as I apply it. This product keeps me matt for a few hours, and it protects from the sun very well. It is easy to blend, and it doesn’t leave a white cast per se. It acts more like a brightening primer – if that makes sense. I think it’s what the name Milky Bright stands for. The sunscreen will brighten your skin. You can treat it as a brightening primer if you wish. I would say that darker complexions may consider using a BB cream on top of this product. You can reapply the sunscreen, and it won’t show up, but you need to make sure that you blend it in well because you will get a white residue if you don’t spread it nicely. Just take your time and rub it in slowly, by applying a couple of small layers.

Do Essential Oils Really Work? Super effective!
Do Essential Oils Really Work? Super effective!
My skin type is complex; the T zone is oily but the cheeks area is a little bit dry. The biggest problem with my skin is acne.  I really suffer from red pimples and scars they left. These scars cost my skin ages to get recovered. However, with my age getting close to 30,  I find it’s really hard to get back to a fresh and clean look on my face. Undoubtedly, metabolism has slowed down with aging, so I have to ask help from skincare products to accelerate the process of darkness retrieval.  The Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution from KIEHL’s Kiehl's - Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solutionreally helped me a lot. Normally, this serum has two sizes, one is 50ml and the other is 100ml. The 100ml one I have at the moment is the third bottle. At first, I gave it a try so I bought a 50ml one. Surprisingly, the first try fresh my skin and those dark scars were fading out. Each next day I could see the improvement of my skin, so I decided to hold this product on by purchasing one by one. According to the official explanations, it’s dermatologically suggested to assist correct dark spots and discolorations.  This serum consists of a potent complex of activated C, white birch, and peony, clarifying your skin and correcting your skin tone to an even one. I believe it’s really safe because this product has never irritated my skin at all. It smells herbal-like but comfortable. It is semi-transparent and feels silky and fluid, not much similar to an oily-like one because it’s easy to be absolved by the skin.  I often apply it after the toner, and as a massage essence, it helps me smoothly massage my whole face. You should get really fast because your skin relatively rapidly drinks the liquid. I highly recommend this one and I will continue to buy it.

New release vs. Best-selling, who wins?🤔
New release vs. Best-selling, who wins?🤔
Recently I use two Kiehl's serums with the same price, BUT which of them is better? This is a detailed comparison between Kiehl's Vital Skin-strengthening Super SerumKiehl's - Vital Skin-Strengthening Hyaluronic Acid Super Serum andKiehl's - Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution. Background: I've finished two bottles of 30ml Dark Spot Solution and used the Super Serum for 1 week. Both of them are the same price. Texture and feeling on the skin: 1) Dark Spot Solution is more refreshing and cooling on the skin, and it doesn't leave the skin feeling sticky. 2) Super Serum is a little bit greasy, and caused a tingling and warming sensation when applied! Both contain salicylic acid, so I'm unsure as to why it left that sensation on my skin. It also made my hand turn red immediately after I spread it on my skin, which I also seemed to find red spots on. 3) Dark Spot Solution blends very easily but it takes longer for Super Serum to blend and absorb. Scent: 1) Dark Spot Solution is scent-free. 2) Super Serum has an unpleasant herbal scent! Effects: 1) Dark Spot Solution did nothing much for me except for maybe reducing sallowness. It also contains Pro-Xylane, which is meant for anti-aging, but I find the anti-aging effect to be very minimal. 2) Super Serum focuses on primary anti-aging and moisturizing. I do find it to be moisturizing, which is just its basic function, but I find the anti-aging effect to be non-existent. Common allergens: 1) Both contain salicylic acid but it's better formulated in the Dark Spot Solution so that it's quite gentle and is well-tolerated by even dry sensitive skin! Even those with combination-oily skin like me can't tolerate Super Serum. It just feels the worst on my skin. 2) Dark Spot Solution contains a vitamin C derivative and is more stable and gentle. 3) Super Serum contains hyaluronic acid and after it dries on the skin, it does ball up slightly. Summary: 1) I recommend Dark Spot Solution because it feels comfortable on the skin, brightens complexion, and reduces sallowness. 2) I don't recommend Super Serum, especially for sensitive skin. Did you use both of them before? What's your feeling?
