Some Kiehl's

Kiehl's (since 1851), comes with a 'new' range. Rare Earth Pore Minimizing Lotion is the first I've tried (in the range) and I must say, I kinda disappoint in the product. First I got their tester like months ago, from Deep Pore Cleanser, Pore Minimizing Lotion and Deep Pore Cleansing Masque. I haven't tried the cleanser and the masque yet but the lotion it too creamy for me. I've used Kiehl's product before and may I say they are really fine when I used them during traveling, especially if it is during winter or dry-er area.

When I applied it on my skin it feels sticky, and I really hate the smell, it was awful for me, like taking a medicine through my skin. It does say on the label that this product is rich in mineral, well perhaps it's too rich for me. I don't know how it will be if I used the product daily, I mean how long 'till I can see the result but so far since I dislike the scent I'm going to give it a pass to my husband.

The texture itself is not creamy, but like what it's say it is a lotion, a white lotion, and during application can easily applied, but not easily penetrate. I think I like it better to use it at night since well I'm not using make up. For me using this product and make up afterward is a bad combination (again: for me).

But I will still try their masque and cleanser and will give a review later on, perhaps later today :)

Newly added review:
9 months have passed and my husband still a loyal user of this product, the lotion absorb well on him and he shows me how to use it (duh! What's the matter with me?!) Instead of doing the lotion all at once better to put them little by little in 5 different spots (forehead, nose, cheeks, chin) and spread them easily. I still dislike the scent but it help the absorption by far. Will I use it now? Heehee, still no, sorry I'm a scent oriented person, but if you don't mind the scent go ahead! My husband also keep using it. 

Another product of Kiehl's is Superbly Restorative Argan Skin Salve, this one is a hit for me. I love the citrus scent and it's thick alright. Kinda like a bee-honey-comb-wax from color to texture. I've also tried their lotion form you can read it here. This balsam is suitable for skin and hair, edge of the hair. I use it by taking a bit to my palm or finger tips, activate my warmth power, and let the oil melts and put them on where needed. No more dry knees, elbows, split ends and for me I love the fact that the products use natural ingredients that I let my kid get her hands on it. For me this 40 g last for a very long time (like 4 months for daily use), since each use I only use a little and the oils goes along the way.

It can also be used as minor skin problems to help soothe and relaxed too, it can also be used to soften cuticles.

Must have! During traveling, in your purse, or anywhere you go, perfect as a beauty 101.


  1. Thanks so much for the review. I've recently started exploring the brand and am not sure what to get. This will save me some money!

  2. Glad I can help Kristie,

    please let me know if you are interested in other product, I still got a lot on my dressing table (Estee Lauder, Kose, etc), just don't have the time yet to do all :)
