Kiehl’s launches new Masque Duo for an Instant Facial Look!

IMG_9026

On one fine day I received a package from the lovely people of Kiehl’s SG with very a unique packaging. There’s a cranberry pack, an orange and ground turmeric inside a lovely wooden box. I can’t help myself but to pick a piece of cranberry to munch while looking at the products sent. It turned out to be Kiehl’s is sending me two new masques – one is made with Turmeric and Cranberry seeds and the other is made with Cilantro and Orange extract. How lovely!

So let’s find out more!

Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque is packed with real crushed cranberry seeds inside. It promises to brightens the skin and to energize the look of dull, fatigued skin to restore a healthy, rosy appearance. The crushed cranberry seeds is meant to be used as a natural exfoliating agent to achieve smoother, brighter and illuminated complexion.

Turmeric has been known traditionally used as natural cleanser to detox the skin from impurities, and is known to have strong antioxidant, anti-septic and sebum balancing properties. Cranberry is a popular source for antioxidant too, so expect a cleansed & energised skin!

Now onto the second masque, Kiehl’s Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Masque; this is the masque created to defends and replenishes skin to reduce the visible effects of pollution while helping to prevent impurities from adhering to skin.

In our busy life, our skin is faced to pollution every single day. This causes skin aging, and pollution damages our skin. This masque is created with orange extract sourced from the Mediterranean, South and Central America that is known for its ability to protect skin from UV, stimulate the production of essential skin barrier. It is also formulated with skin strengthening ingredients like cilantro seed oil which sourced from eastern Europe to encourages the stimulation of skin barrier differentiation, induce lipid accumulation and accelerate barrier regeneration after pollution damage.

These masques is launched together and they’re meant to give an instant facial look where your skin will look brighter, and giving a rosy appearance.

Let me share with you my personal encounter with these products.

I tried Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque on my face and left it for about 5 minutes and I used water to dampen my skin and eventually massage my skin before rinsing it all. I love the smell of the product, it’s not too strong and yet still has the natural turmeric smell. My skin condition is dry and I do recommend for people with drier skin texture to use this masque for a shorter period i.e. 2-3 minutes before massaging your face as I feel that this might works best for people with oily skin. The masque is indeed effective in cleansing my face and giving it a natural rosy glow after using it. I love how my face looks instantly brighter after using it! Then on that same day, I applied the Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Masque before I sleep. I applied it all over my face before I go to sleep. I must mention that I really love the thicker texture of this masque and how it smells. I can smell the cilantro scent and it makes me feels refreshed! The masque has a soothing effect on my skin and voila! I can see my face looks healthier in the morning!

Based on my skin condition, I highly recommend Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Masque to be used 2-3 times a week. The smell makes me feel relaxed and it does magic to my skin over one night!

 

Both masques will be available in SG in February 2016 and retail at $49 each!

Kiehl’s Vetiver & Black Tea Fragrance Collection

Kiehl’s presents a new range of scent of their aromatic blends. This time, it’s a unique blend of Vetiver and Black Tea.

The new fragrance, Vetiver & Black Tea, gives patrons an invigorating woody fragrance selection that captures the earthy, sweet aroma of Vetiver and the soothing, citrus-like aroma of Black Tea.

As a tea lover, I like the non intimidating smell of this scent. I can smell the black tea in this product – it gives a relaxing aroma to my mind whenever I apply it.

Some of you might not be familiar with Vetiver; Vetiver is originally grown and harvested in Haiti. Vetiver is also a vital plant for supporting soil retention and irrigation control. This oil gives a woody scent with sweet-sour accents and a woody-balsamic undertone. Whereas for black tea, I am sure many of you are familiar with black tea and might be drinking it almost everyday. Ceylon black tea is harvested in the high mountains of Sri Lanka and it’s dried and fermented afterwards. With this method, we’ll get the soothing and citrusy fragrance of black tea.

This range comes with Softening Body Cleanser and Softening Body Lotion, The body cleanser is sulfate free and the body lotion is silicone free.

Kiehl’s Singapore celebrate 10th birthday, and here are my favorite products…

IMG_9752.jpg

 

Happy birthday to Kiehl’s Singapore!!

Kiehl’s Singapore celebrates their 10th anniversary

I would like to take this opportunity to write a post dedicated to my favorite Kiehl’s products. I started using Kiehl’s product about two years ago and these products have always been my favorite and I will always repurchase the products whenever I almost ran out of these.

Here are my favorite products from Kiehl’s and products are not in sequence..

IMG_9756.jpg

Firstly is the Ultra Facial Cream. My skin type is normal to combination – however at certain times, my cheek area tends to be drier than the usual. Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream comes in few types; the classic ultra facial cream, the intense hydration and lastly the newly launched is the oil free type. The products captured above is the classic type and the intense hydration type.

I love both face creams, they moisturises my skin without leaving a greasy feeling. On top of that, the product is fragrance free, so it’s a lovely product to be used anytime of the day. I am using the classic ultra facial cream for my day use and the intense hydration for my night routine.

IMG_9754.jpg

Here’s another product that I have been using over and over again.I am currently on my third bottle. Here’s Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution. This serum helps to minimize dark spots and to brighten the skintone. I love this product because it’s effective in brightening my skintone. Whenever I feel that my skin feels dull, I’ll pick this out and apply it onto my face. In few days, I will usually be able to witness the result; my skin looks brighter and healthier.

IMG_9755.jpg

Lastly it would be the Midnight Recovery Concentrate. This was the first oil based products that I tried and since then, I have always been a lover of oil based products. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery is the product I am looking for whenever I am having a breakout – it has always helps to calm my skin down. This would also be the product that I am looking for whenever I feel too tired to apply many products at night. I will apply my serum quickly and add this as a moisturiser.

I also love Kiehl’s Suncreen, BB cream and many others.. But these three has always been my top picks from Kiehl’s! If you have not tried any of these, you can always pop by at Kiehl’s store and ask for samples.

And to celebrate Kiehl’s Singapore 10th Birthday, Kiehl’s is collaborating with Olivia Ong to release a limited edition designed Calendula Toner and Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque. The design is inspired by one of Kiehl’s most iconic and long standing ingredients from nature – Calendula flower.

Kiehl’s Micro Blur Skin Perfector

Hi ladies!  Today I am going to share something from Kiehl’s. This is one of Kiehl’s new release product – it’s Micro Blur Skin Perfector. So what does this product do? Basically it claims that provides both an immediate blurring effect to visibly transform the look of skin in seconds, and an improvement of pores and skin texture over time.

I have to admit that overall I am happy and thankful for my skin condition. However pores have been a concern to me too. My pores on my nose area doesn’t look good and I am constantly looking for product that will help me to improve my pore conditions. IMG_9458.jpg

Kiehl’s Micro Blur contains light reflectors to visibly transform skin, creating a smooth, pristine complexion. With Lipo Hydroxy Acid (LHA) and lentil extract, this skin care formula also provides long-term results, helping to refine skin texture, diminish lines, and reduce the appearance of pores when used daily.
The main ingredient in this products are:

  • Lipo Hydroxy Acid (LHA): An ingredient known to provide gentle exfoliation; used in this formula to leave skin radiant and smoother.
  • Lentil Extract: Helps to strengthen and tighten pores when used in the formula, providing a nearly poreless appearance over time.
  • Bark Extract: From the Guyana-native Bootlace Tree (Eperua Falcata), helps to smooth texture of the skin.

I have tested this product on the back of my hand to show the result of this product.
Swatch and Review
The picture below here is my naked hand. I did not apply anything here. You can see some visible pores there.
IMG_9463.jpg
The picture below is the back of my hand after I applied Micro Blur Skin perfector.
IMG_9465.jpg
As you can see in the picture above, this product gives instant result. My pores are blurred immediately and my skin looks so much smoother compared to the picture above. When I touch my skin, it feels smooth and it does not feel heavy at all. The product feels light weight and there’s no sticky feeling when this product was applied onto my face.
The product claims to improve skin texture by reducing the appearance of pores after 4 weeks. I have not tried this product for 4 weeks and have not seen any improvement on my pores condition. But I can definitely feel that this product gives instant result – it makes blurs my pores appearance immediately.
I use this product as a make up base after I apply my sun screen. Then after applying Micro Blur Skin Perfector, I apply Kiehl’s BB Cream or any other bb cream I wish to use on that day. It’s easier to apply BB Cream or any other foundation after I apply Micro Blur Skin Perfector as I don’t need to focus so much on covering my pores.
I also use this product when I do my touch up. After 6-7 hours when I see that my foundation/bb cream starts to fade, I will dab a tiny amount of Micro Blur Skin Perfector and apply it onto my nose area. In this way, my make up looks more natural and it covers little imperfection I have during the day.
Micro-Blur Skin Perfector will be available only in May 2014 island wide and it is retailing at $52 for 30ml of product
