Guess what lovelies, Kiehl’s and Vogue have sent yours truly a beautiful surprise package to share to y’all. I bet you’re all just as excited as I am. I couldn’t help but let out a squeal when I have received the box filled with Kiehl’s full size skin care products. Who wouldn’t be excited??? Kiehl’s since 1851 had been providing had been providing products that are made with the finest “naturally-derived” ingredients! Even their packaging is recyclable. If you have seen the teasers that I have shared on my favorite social networks you would have a slight idea already of what the goodies are. For those who haven’t, wait no further … you can check out the pictures below …
As you may all know, a few weeks back I started a new cleansing and moisturizing regimen. While Kiehl’s Healthy Skin Essentials targets a different skin related issue, I prefer not to mix products that I use to achieve an ideal result. Being a beauty blogger it gets quite challenging to share my reviews on a timely manner and to make sure that I am “reviewing / testing” products properly, I had to give my skin a little break.
I gave my skin a rest for 2 straight days (over the last weekend of August) – no skin care products was used aside from a facial wash. I started using Kiehl’s skin care line the very first day of this month and as of today I have been using Kiehl’s products for 1 whole week already. Trying new products can be scary but I am willing to give things a try to find that perfect product that works great with combination skin type. Most especially I get a lot of private messages from most of my readers asking what products I can recommend, so this review is dedicated to all of you.
After using the product for one week I am now able to share my “first impression” and broad overview. Read on for my detailed review …
Super Multi-Corrective Eye-Opening Serum
This holy grail is absolutely amazing-ggg! Yes it is a Holy Grail product. I would recommend it to anyone. A product that actually works to make my eyes look livelier and youthful by firming and lifting the surrounding skin. In fact this works great for those who did not have enough rest the night before and want to make sure they have a well-rested look.
First Impression: At first pump I thought I smelled an hint of alcohol but subsided right away within 3-seconds as soon as I started lathering. Odorless and leaves no funny smell or sticky residue. After application following Kiehl’s official “How-To” guide which can be found below … the skin surrounding my eyes feels tighter and lifted.

Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate
I’m a night-owl I typically stay up all night as I suffer from insomnia. Despite knowing the side-effects of sleep-deprivation I couldn’t force myself to sleep unless I take some supplements that will help me doze off. That being said, often times my skin feels dehydrated and dull. My eyes tend to get dark circles underneath with slight puffiness. Zombie-like? Yep.
First Impression: At first pump it looked like a cloudy semi-transparent gel that is cold to touch. Completely odorless and no sticky residue. With the Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum my skin started to look so much healthier once again. No filler injections needed as this serum have plumped my skin and made it look so much smoother and radiant! At first
Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash
This soap-free gel compound facial wash is very fun to use as it transforms to creamy foam when lathered with water. Formulated with Calendula Flower Extracts and Glycerin, my skin is stripped off with any impurities without affecting the Ph balance and leaving it instantly refreshed without over drying. Perfect for Normal – Oily skin type and compatible with any skin-type even for those who have a sensitive skin.
First Impression: At first pump I noticed right away that it came off as a thick gel and it has a hint of plant / herb like scent. If I were to describe it further it reminds me of an earthly like aroma that a leaf or petal would give off when crushed or crumbled. My skin feels really clean and somewhat moisturized right after use.
Micro-Blur Skin Perfector
Got super-sized enlarged pores? I know exactly how you feel. Seriously, sometimes I feel like someone can already start mining from my pores and bury something in there. I know cleaning my face regularly and using toner can help pores appear smaller, and it does … except when I use BB Creams or Foundation. Great! No, not really. With the Micro-Blur Skin Perfector my pores looks way less visible! I simply have to squeeze a small amount, dot it around the area with enlarged pores, then pat and spread. As soon as I applied a BB Cream on top of the Micro Blur I noticed right away that my skin looked smoother and pores were minimized.
First Impression: At first squeeze I noticed that it is tinted with a creamy peach & yellow shade and appeared like a paste formulation. As I was lathering the product onto my face it gave me a tingling cold sensation. It was a refreshing feeling and I can’t help but enjoy its light powder light scent. Definitely a great product to have on every woman’s makeup bag. PS it doesn’t clog my pores neither!
Super Multi-Corrective Cream
Looking for a moisturizer that addresses the typical signs of aging? How about to regain bounce and elasticity? Maybe combat wrinkles too? The Super Multi-Corrective Cream addresses all of that and more … and that also includes making pores look less visible! Say what now? Yep. This daily moisturizer is your all-in-one combo to help fight the typical skin care issues that start appearing as we age.
First Impression: Fresh, Light, and Clean are the first few words that came into mind after slathering an ample amount on my skin. The cream doesn’t leave any sticky residue nor does it make my face look or feel greasy. My most favorite part? The cooling sensation while it improves my skin’s resiliency. Somehow I can’t really figure out the scent but the closest that I can refer to is a combination of sweet and sour citrus as well as a hint of milk like scent that quickly subsides.
Midnight Recovery Concentrate
Need a magic elixir to restore the appearance of skin overnight? Look no further. A Skin Care witch have cooked up an elixir on her cauldron and called it Midnight Recovery Concentrate. This Kiehl’s product made it to my Holy Grail list as well and totally love that it is Paraben Free, Fragrance Free and Mineral Oil Free – infused with natural oils that can easily penetrate skin.
First Impression: comes in a very unique packaging / product bottle. The bottle comes with a dropper inside and instead of squeezing to get the product, this bottle is made for pressing. Cool! The scent reminds of a lawn with fresh cut / trimmed glass. Despite the product containing distilled Botanicals and Pure Essential Oils my skin surely doesn’t feel heavy, greasy or oily/shiny.

Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution
Looking like a raccoon after quite a few sleepless nights? I can relate. Badly! I often wish that the dark circle / rims under my eyes are just from a smeared eyeliner or runny mascara. Except it isn’t the case. With the Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution the dark circles under my eyes had been diminished.
First Impression: first few squeeze I noticed right away a hint of light alcohol and some other sweet blend. Quite easy to use and can be used as a spot treatment on the problems areas. No sticky or greasy residue neither. Definitely a great product to have no matter. Obviously this product made it to my Holy Grail list as well.
Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate
Wrinkles and Lines got you down? Frown no more as this Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate is here to save the day! Formulated with a high concentration of Pure Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid) this product improves the appearance of skin aging. There’s a fine line that I have been noticing on my forehead and cheek area that for the life of me don’t know how to fix … up until this product.
First Impression: Using the Line-Reducing Concentrate it had slowly started showing a slight difference to my fine lines. My skin definitely looks toner and firmer too. Upon squeezing and slathering an ample amount I noticed a warming sensation.
❝ How To Use Powerful Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate ❞
Overall: I love how Kiehl’s skin care has dramatically made my skin look younger, firmer and radiant! The prices on some items are reasonable, while the others are slightly a bit expensive but totally understandable. With Kiehl’s products you get the finest naturally-derived ingredients. Basically, you literally get what you pay for.
