// My Favourites from Kiehls

k5


Last week for work I attended a Kiehls training seminar. These are often really informative and interesting, I have to say it was quite fun even though I was exhausted from an early start. It was held at the L'Oreal HQ in Hammersmith. I learnt a lot about the history of Kiehls, which had me really excited about the brand in general. It got me thinking about products I enjoy using from Kiehls, so I thought I'd share them with you.


Creme De Corps

Easily one of Kiehls number one products, this body cream is fantastic. I love the texture, the smell and the ways in which it really hydrates the body. I honestly notice such a glow when I use this, I don't know if I've posted about it before.. I can't remember. However, I used this a lot when I was away on holiday in Egypt and Dubai this summer. I actually used it as an after sun product, I really felt like it enhanced my tan and made my body look radiant. I found out at the training that the Victoria Secret angels use this just before hitting the runway! WOW.. I came home, jumped in the shower got this baby back out. After using it I remembered why I love it so much. It absorbs so well into the skin, without leaving your body feeling greasy or sticky.. something that I find a lot of body hydrators do. If you haven't tried this where have you been hiding!?



Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion


k1


This is another body lotion I adore by Kiehls, the consistency is quite leight-weight in comparison to Kiehls Creme de Corps. However the Argan oil is an ingredient that really helps hydrate and protect the body with its' antioxidant properties. It's a really good one at evening out skin tone and helps with scarring. This cream smells amazing as it's scented with essential oils of orange and eucalyptus. So if you like wearing fresh citrus smelling body lotions this one is for you. It really wakes me up in the mornings!



No1.Lipbalm


k4


I have used this for ages now, I remember posting about it and since then I have gone through many of these. My favourite flavours are the Vanilla and the Mango. Not only do they smell amazing, they work so beautifully on the lips. They glide on, moisturise and even give your lips that glossy finish. The only thing I dislike about this product is that you have to apply it with your fingers, so I tend to use this first thing in the morning or just before I go to bed. They also have a sun factor which is important and something you don't find in all lip products.



Silk Groom Serum


k3


Unlike a lot of serums the Kiehls serum is so lightweight and not greasy. This is a major advantage in my eyes as it doesn't weigh down the hair. One thing I hate about serums in general is that although they work wonders in taming the frizz, you apply a teeny bit too much and instead of your hair looking shiny and healthy it ends up look greasy and unwashed. I have never had this problem with the Kiehls Silk Groom, I love to use this when my hair is wet before styling and I sometimes apply it to my hair when it looks particularly dry. This product says its for straightening however, I use it all the time when my hair is wavy, curly or straight!



So there you have it, a few of my favourite Kiehls products. Do you guys like Kiehls? What have you tried? What would you like to try?


Lots of Love

  2. I would love to try the lip balm, but the applying with fingers puts me off a bit, as its something I like to carry around with me and use throughout the day...I am looking for a new cleanser though, have you ever used any of Khiels cleansers?

  3. I have been using their argan shampoo and conditioner and, honestly, my hair has never looked better! I have super-frizzy, dry and awfully hard to manage hair. well, it's still not perfectly shiny and smooth (I guess, there are no miracle workers out there) but I believe this is as good as it gets. All in all, really happy with the results!
    I also use their straightening heat-protective cream on wet or dry hair just before blow-drying or styling it. but I will look into the serum you mentioned. that sounds like something I might like, too.
    have a good week!

  4. I used to love the lip balm - will have to repurchase it. I've had the creme de corps before - but I don't remember being amazed by it.

    Right now I'm using their cucumber eye cream - and I love it.

  5. Oops - I think it's the avocado eye cream I meant - not cucumber....green veggie mix-up!

  7. Great post! I love Kiehl's lipbalms, I have almost all of them! Mango is definitely my favourite, coconut is a close second! I have yet to try the Creme Du Corps, I might have to pick this up! New follower too :)x

  8. I always find Kiehl's a bit hit or miss - I've had some nasty reactions to their moisturisers, but I LOVE their lip balms and body scrub. The hair serum sounds really good though and so does the Argan body lotion...hmmmm..might have to get me down to Kiehl's to check out some more stuff!x
