Centella Recovery Skin Salve by Kiehl's

Hi all!

This post is made for those suffering sensitive skin. One of my best friend who suffer a sensitive skin and funnily she will try the products AFTER I become tester. This is not a joke for people suffering sensitive skin, they are not comfortable with the situation and tester or samples are very important for them to see the first reaction that might come up. While normal skin feels nothing, they (people with sensitive skin) can feel itchy, burning sensation, redness and bumps as well.

Kiehl's gave me some samples specifically made for sensitive skin, it's called Centella Recovery Skin Salve (well actually Kiehl's also gave me the cleanser, but let's try to focus here :D )

Sometime my skin do feel the urge to be sensitive, redness and red bumps also appears. Many compliment my skin for being so smooth and seems like no problem. Little that they know I do have some issues as well with my skin. Normally the irritation are visible at the cheeks. Mainly it is caused by lack of hydration and other irritants from some products that exfoliate my skin.

Kiehl’s Insider Tip: For irritated and overly sensitive skin, we also recommend Centella Skin-Calming Facial Cleanser.

The creamy gel feels a bit thick. I can't feel a vivid scent from the ingredients, btw these are the ingredients:

A-lo VIR-ah
Aloe Vera is known for its soothing effect and is derived from the aloe vera plant..
Honey is the nectar produced in flowers and then collected and stored by bees. It is composed of a variety of sugars, wax, and other substances, including citric, malic, formic, and lactic acids; beta carotene; enzymes; amino acids and vitamins. It is used as an emollient in skin care and creates a watertight film, allowing skin to rehydrate itself. Moisturizing, softening, sweet and fragrant.
sen-tella aa-zee-atika

But I can definitely say something about the feeling, the sensation is smooth but a bit sting on some parts, the parts that are very dehydrated and irritated. It's a good sting, thou' ^___^ Like when you have a booboo and the medicine works it's way to heal it.

As seen on the picture the redness start disappearing fast. My skin become moist and no longer 'crying for help'. Some of the bigger bump still visible, just reduced in size, smaller bumps and redness are gone.

Overall, I am recommending this product for sensitive skin and I will try the cleanser too (will definitely keep you all posted). The feeling is comfortable and 'covering', like you're going inside a fluffy, soft blanket ready to go to bed. Better explanation: Like your skin have this bubble that protect from any aggressor. You'll understand how I feel if you try it ^__^
