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 ;)
