Before I get into this blog I wanted to say a huge thank you to all you readers out there. I was recently mentioned on Narcity as one of the 12 Beauty Bloggers you must follow, and I only have you guys to thank! If you'd like to check out the article you can click here.
Something happened to me in the Summer, and I have been keeping it mildly to myself until I was ready to shout it from the rooftops. That time has come, and I want to let you guys know about a skincare line that has truly changed my skin.
This past Summer I got an email from the PR Department at Kiehl's. They invited me to a Blogger event at the newly opened store in the Halifax Shopping Centre. Obviously my curiousity was high, as I have heard amazing things about Kiehl's, and until that store opened, I had only seen their products in airports while travelling. I had tried their hand salve, and their famous body lotion and fell in love with both.
The event was amazing, and of course I left with a bag of products to try. They gave us all personalized skin consultations and sent us home with the products that were matched to us. I remember being hesitant to try them, and it took me awhile to take the plunge. My skin is so sensitive and very reactive to most new products, and I remember I had a wedding to attend and didn't want my skin to be a mess. When I was ready I slowly introduced the products one at a time (If I started them all together and reacted, I would have no idea what did it to me!)
Let me be very clear when I say this. This skincare line is incredible. Not only did my skin not react, but visible changes have happened since I started using them. AND the big kicker, is I have repurchased them since I ran out. If there is ever a test to how much I like a product, it is when I will repurchase. I started with a fairly basic regime. Ultra Facial Cleanser, Ultra Facial Toner and Ultra Facial Cream. In the morning I would apply the Daily Reviving Concentrate, and at nighttime the Midnight Recovery Concentrate. On top of all of these, I have also been using the Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment.
I knew quickly how much I loved the products, and when I ran out of the midnight recovery concentrate, I knew I had to get my hands on it again. I added myself to their email list, and was happy to see that they frequently do promos online and I was able to get free shipping, 20% off, and my choice of four deluxe sized samples. I ordered right away, and that brought me to try the Nightly Refining Micro Peel Concentrate. That specific product is meant to accelerate the cell renewal of your skin. Similar to the effects of Glycolic Acid, but it is made with Quinoa Husk extract. I thought for sure my skin would react to that but when I woke up with nothing but clear and smooth skin, I knew I had found my skincare haven. I recently attended another event, and was lucky enough to get some other products to try. The Rare Earth Deep Cleansing Mask and the Cilantro and Orange extract mask are two of my go to's at the moment.
I still have lots to try from the brand, but I will continue to put my faith in them as nothing has disappointed me yet. I am excited to try some of their hair products soon!
Do you guys have one skincare brand in particular that you blindly trust with everything? I have a friend that is obsessed with Clarins and everything they make seems to love her ...
Can we also talk about how tomorrow is December 1st?! I am going to be posting once a day, everyday on Instagram in December to show you guys 31 products that I am absolutely loving. Both old and new!
