I appear to have been late on the Kiehl’s bandwagon, with everyone rating the Midnight Recovery Oil left right and centre alongside the Avocado Eye Cream, but last Christmas after picking up the Iris Essence, my interest piqued in a cult brand amongst us beauty loving folk.

It was only at duty-free that I really found myself deal deep in a few new products that I have come to love and swear by recently; firstly the Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Mineral Super Fluid Suncream is a god-send for those with sensitive or acne-prone skin (watch my review here) because it has a cool tone tint that helps conceal any blemishes and high SPF that keeps you protected for hours. Expensive for a little bottle and hard to find outside of airports, yes, but something you’ll fall in love with? Definitely.

Again, duty-free came a calling and fears of sunburn (which later came true along with the heat-rash, my British skin was unprepared) were answered with the Centella Recovery Skin-Salve; I had a sample of this from Liberty and it was very soothing thanks to the added Aloe-Vera and Tiger Herb gel consistency, so I was constantly lathering this on my shins and arms come the end of the week (Note, leave it in the fridge, absolute heaven.)

Finally whilst sifting through the many sample drawers I own, I found a mini Kiehl’s Hand Salve which I gotta say is the nicest lightweight formula I’ve tried – super hydrating but non-sticky or greasy, just the perfect top-up if you’re out and about or needing something cool for summer.

What about you – are you a Kiehl’s fan? Is there anything else from the brand I should try? Have you tried any of these yourself?

Lots of Love,
