Spell Saab

I’m a certified Kiehl’s girl and I want to share my collection with you since you guys have been so nice telling me I have such good skin! YAY! A lot of the credit goes to my parents for having wonderful skin themselves but as I’m aging (I’m turning 26 this year. Que horror!!!) I figured I have to take care of my skin while I’m young! I’m lucky enough to be blemish-free but after all the late-night gigs and exposure to the sun, I was noticing my skin had been looking more tired than fresh.

Since I’ve started a skin care regimen and a lifestyle check (a.k.a. less alcohol, more sleep), my skin now wants to kiss me for finally moisturizing and more!!

Wala lang gusto lang sumali ni Khaleesi and ng dragon niya, bakit? Haha. It was never natural for me to wash my face and I took pride in the fact na water lang ang ginagamit ko sa skin ko. I even used to always sleep with makeup on. But I am conceding – nasa Diyos ang awa nasa tao ang gawa. In this case, God-given ang beauty ko pero kailangan ako ang mag-alaga nito! HAHAHAHA.

So I went to Kiehl’s branch in Shangri-la East Wing months ago where got a free assessment on what skin care products were best for my skin type.

They had these special strips to put on your forehead and cheek to check your skin type

My test said normal to oily.

I also told the skin care expert (thank you, Michelle!) that I don’t regularly moisturize because my face gets so sweaty when I do. So she introduced me to this amazing product called ULTRA FACIAL OIL-FREE GEL CREAM. Michelle looked really proud too when I told her about my predicament. Her face was like, “no sweat, we have it!” (hehe get it?) I also told her that I want to get rid of the dark circles under my eyes and she handed me this CREAMY EYE TREATMENT to use every night. Para kasing ganda ng mata ni Khaleesi.

In the morning I wash my face with CALENDULA DEEP CLEANSING FOAMING FACE WASH and tone with CALENDULA HERBAL-EXTRACT TONER, moisturize with ULTRA FACIAL OIL-FREE GEL CREAM and use Kiehl’s BB Cream (not pictured). At night, I use the RARE EARTH DEEP PORE DAILY CLEANSER, tone with my Calendula Toner, moisturize with the MIDNIGHT RECOVERY CONCENTRATE (avoid eye area), and use the CREAMY EYE TREATMENT.

In the shower, I use Kiehl’s products too! I told Michelle I hated using conditioners because they make my hair so limp. I like volume so this has always been a problem for me. Again, she had a solution for me!! The RICE & WHEAR VOLUMIZING CONDITOINING RINSE gives my hair moisture without making it flat! Perfect!! I apply it to my hair (skip the roots) after using the SUNFLOWER COLOR PRESERVING SHAMPOO. For my body wash, I use BASHI BLOSSOM & PINK GRAPEFRUIT SKIN SOFTENING BODY CLEANSER and when I have time to spare, I use the SOY MILK & HONEY BODY POLISH to exfoliate my body (especially elbows and knees!). It’s gentle enough for daily use!

I’m so glad I’ve finally decided to take care of my skin!! I bet my skin is even happier than I am :) Which Kiehl’s product is your favorite? Might just hold a giveaway soon ;)

    hi saab! i saw your ig post way back about the midnight recovery serum. I found you credible enough esp. with things like this that’s why I didn’t think twice about ordering the product and so far I’m loving it! it does wonders to my skin even if I always sleep late. Totally worth the price! I’m thinking about getting the eye cream soon too. Much love to you and joey bear xx

    Immediately went to Kiehl’s after reading this. I was considering to try out the brand way before but this post was eeally helpful in sealing the deal. I also have normal to oily skin and most products I used before tend to be harsh and give me dry patches in the nose area.

    So far I am loving the Calendula range and the oil free gel cream as well. Thank you for the recommendation Saab! And yes you’re right. More sleep really does help.

    No wonder your knees aren’t dark, they look so kinis! (check: pose like a fashown blogger, MAC lipstick blog post) That’s probably my only issue with my skin. Thanks for this blog entry! Heading out to the nearet Kiehl’s store :)

    I saw in your IG account your post about rare earth deep pore daily cleanser (http://instagram.com/p/tXRKApkjqx/?modal=true)
    and from there, I immediately went to Kiehl’s shop here in greenbelt. However since its out of my budget I haven’t bought it yet but I’m planning to save for it. Reading this blog, I want to have the eye treatment as well due to my dark circles under my eyes where I never found the perfect treatment for it. I hope to have my first Kiehl product soon! thank you saab for sharing your beauty regimen :)

    I want to try the deep pore cleanser. When I went to their Ayala Center Cebu branch, I was advised to ask my skin doctor so if they can test it then i should go back there! :D

    Strolling at the mall one time and saw Khiel’s store, you immediately popped into my mind. I remember seeing your IG post so I went and looked around. Thanks to the very accomodating Khiel’s lady, I got me some samples of Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion and Acne Blemish Control Daily Skin-Clearing Treatment which I both really loved. She suggested that I should try samples first just to make sure these are exactly what I need, so nice of her. I’d definitely come back to get these products and add up Creamy Eye Treatment, thanks to you! (Currently in Dubai, btw, hopefully I get to go to one of your gigs on my Dec/Jan vacay to Pinas) :-)

    Hi Saab! Grabe akala ko before basta artista they don’t problems on their faces and hair anymore. But you proved me wrong! Hahaha. It’s nice to see na honest ka sa mga skin and hair problems mo. Tapos you posted something like this pa to recommend to us readers. Grabe galing talaga. Anyway, I laughed at the “nasa Diyos ang awa nasa tao ang gawa” part and the “God-given and beauty ko” part. You’re so cool cos you’re like still a teen pa rin pero super matured. Hahaha. Stay safe. God Bless!

    Hi Saab! Just wondering if you also tried Burt’s Bee Natural Acne Solutions Purifying Gel Cleanser before or any other Burt’s Bee facial product. I’m having a dilemma between Kiehls and Burt’s Bee huhuhu

    Started using Kiehl’s after seeing your post about the Midnight Recovery. Grabe, ang ganda ng effect niya sa skin ko. Even bought their Tea Tree Oil Shampoo, Sunflower Color Preserving Conditioner and Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser. I guess I’m a Certified Kiehl’s Girl too. Thanks for recommending it! :)

    I was looking for reviews that would support my instant addiction with Kiehls products and I was glad I stumbled on your site.

I have the set of Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser, Moisturizer, & astringent Herbal Lotion (since my skin is oily), and the newest on my collection are Ultra light daily UV defense and Micro-Blur Skin Perfector! Gosh, cant wait to use them everyday! Love your post!!! XX

Even Kylie Jenner uses Kiehl’s so no wonder talaga. Haysss. Huhu poor kid problem. Tiis muna ako. Sana may mag giveaway :(
