Quick unrelated announcements: I’m currently also prepping to apply to law school this fall. I signed up for Kaplan tutoring. I plan on sharing my LSAT tips after I take my exam and get my results. Also, I want to revamp my blog and blog more regularly soon. I really need to get into a more productive blogging groove. 🤓Long skincare post below, feel free to skim through:
I bought a few new Kiehl’s skincare products and got a bag with sample sized goodies at the store for free with my purchase! Good luck, right?
I picked up another bottle of Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser (USD 23). I had a few pimples pop up on my forehead, and after using this cleanser, they quickly diminished. I’ve used this product before, and I recommend it because it does what it advertises — gentle daily exfoliation. It’s great for summer when my skin is more sweaty.
I purchased another Midnight Recovery Oil in the medium size ($75). I think this oil mainly helps with skin texture, and it’s amazing as always. The lavender smell is very relaxing.
A product new to me that I got is the Super Multi-Corrective Cream with Beech Tree Extract, Jasmonic and Hyaluronic Acids (around $66 USD). I love how it melts into the skin, its so velvety and smooth. I sought out this product because it has Hyaluronic acids and my esthetician at the Shelbourne suggested I look for products with this to add plumpness back into my skin and fade expression lines.
The sample goodie bag is so cute with a black and white vintage Kiehl’s print interior! Included:
-Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Massque (so excited to use this on my upcoming 11 hour flight back home)
-Ginger Leaf & Hibiscus Firming Mask (love the light smell and buttery texture, skin appeared hydrated in the morning after use)
-Midnight recovery oil face wash (Its just like the face oil – I “somewhat” enjoy using oil face washes to remove make up (gentle wash) but I probably would not buy this because I prefer washes with lather or scrub)
-Rosa Arctica (I used a few times and love it, it leaves the skin very glowy! It shrank the pores on my cheeks. The reviews are stellar online as well)
-Ultra Facial Toner (Leaves my skin feeling clean without feeling stripped, but natural may be best like witch hazel as toner – I always use witch hazel after facial threading or waxing to prevent bumbs)
-Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Eye-Brightening Concentrate (Immediate results in past four uses, lines around eyes diminished. However, the reviews are not positive lately online. Apparently, the formula changed? So I will probably not risk it and purchase a full size) https://www.kiehls.com/skincare/view-all-skincare/powerful-strength-line-reducing-eye-brightening-concentrate/3605970869090.html#q=-Powerful-Strength+Line+Reducing+Eye-Brightening+Concentrate&start=1
-Body Oil (leaves skin feeling very soft but smells a little unpleasant to me)
