Believe it or not, this is the first ever Kiehl’s product I’ve bought, I’ve wanted to explore the brand for quite a while since I’ve only heard great things about their products and can say this extra gentle, foaming cleanser hasn’t disappointed. If you’re not familiar with Kiehl’s, they are a naturally inspired skincare brand that started as a small pharmacy in manhattan then they were eventually bought by the L’Oréal group in 2000 and now are one of the best selling luxury skincare brands across the UK and USA and you can find their products on the premium beauty floor of your local department store.
If you read one of my previous posts on the importance of double cleansing (which you can check out here) you will know that you start with a different cleanser to remove your make up then another cleanser like this one to address any skin concerns so remember this is not your make up cleanser, this is your second cleanser used to treat the skin. This cleanser is for all skin types including sensitive or problematic skin, I have dry, sensitive skin and have been breaking out in lots of spots and noticed congestion recently so I wanted to try a new cleanser as my previous one wasn’t quite helping my recent skin concerns so I decided to give this one a go and I can say I love it.
It is non comedogenic, a gel formula and has 96% natural derived ingredients including hemp derived cold pressed cannabis sativa seed oil and green oregano oil, it is very calming and gets rid of impurities without drying out the skin or stripping it of it’s natural moisture, it is great if you suffer with breakouts, congestion or redness, I definitely recommend it if you are sensitive like I am, it’s hard for me to find skincare products that don’t cause irritation and this one is so gentle and also leaves my skin feeling super clean.
Before applying, damp your hands and face with warm water then apply a pea sized amount (a little goes a long way) and massage onto the face then rinse thoroughly.
