Kiehl’s Skincare First Impressions!

Hi everyone! Lately I’ve not been seeing the best results from my skincare routine, so I’ve decided to change things up a bit. I have never tried the brand Kiehl’s before but heard amazing things about their skincare products, so I decided to give them a go.

I visited my nearest Kiehl’s store and the lady that worked there was so helpful. I told her my skin concerns (dryness and breakouts) and after testing my skin, she recommended me a couple of products.


The first product was their Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion, which was £16.50. I was informed that this is perfect for breakouts and only to apply to affected areas. To apply, you use a cotton pad and press the astringent over the skin.

I am seriously in love with this product so far – I’ve only used it once, but overnight I have already seen an incredible difference to my skin. Any breakouts have become less red and noticeably improved. It hasn’t completely gotten rid of my breakouts from one use – I don’t believe any product is is able to do that – however, I can’t believe I have seen this much of a difference already! I will definitely keep using this and let you guys know how it goes, but so far I’m very impressed with the results.


The moisturiser I was recommended was their Ultra Facial Cream – I’ve seen this before online and believe Kim K’s makeup artist uses this on her. Kim’s skin always looks flawless and hydrated, so I was very happy to give this a go! It feels very light on the skin and also really hydrating. Again, I’ve only used this once so far and I’m impressed with the results. I believe moisturisers take a little more time to see if they really work, but so far I’m loving this!


I also received a couple of free samples that I was really excited about. I got a sample of the Purifying Foaming Cleanser and the Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturising Serum Concentrate. I haven’t tried the cleanser yet, but I tried the serum last night and my skin felt very plumped and hydrated for a long time afterwards. My skin felt amazing after using this and I’m now seriously considering another trip to Kiehl’s!


With the combination of these products, I woke up seeing a real improvement to my skin and can’t wait to start using these regularly. Do you own any Kiehl’s products? Let me know your thoughts and recommendations below!

  1. Would love to see how you get on with the astringent when you’ve tried it more. My blemish gel I use is almost gone. Love that face cream. I use it at night time and I’m so sad I’ve nearly used it up x

  2. Thank you soo much for doing this review! I have exactly the same type of skin as you and i’ve been so hesitant for ages about purchasing kiehls products in case they were wrong for me – but this has now solved my problem 🙂 I’d love it if you would check out my blog (maybe follow?!) – – Bella x

  3. I LOVE that Ultra Facial cream! I was surprised by how much I liked it.
    The other Kiehl’s product I love is the Midnight Recovery eye cream – really nice and absorbs quickly into the skin.
