Last night I was lucky enough to attend a Kiehl’s event at the Selfridges store in Manchester. I am loving that we’re seeing more events up North as it is so nice to connect with other bloggers and hear about brands and their products. The evening was focused around Kiehl’s latest skincare release which is called Skin Rescuer and thats targeted at people whose skin has signs of stress and fatigue (I think we all may be in need of this).
We first heard from Paul who gave us a little insight into the history of the brand and some of their hero products. Quite a few of which I’ve tried & love. Then we heard from Jen about the new Skin Rescuer and she spoke with such passion and knowledge about the product that we were all won over (she had AMAzing skin). I’m excited to try it out and give you all my opinion, so watch this space for quite a few Kiehls reviews.
There is a lovely classic chemist feel to Kiehl’s stores and their brand began back in 1851 in New York City. They have never paid for advertising, all of their reputation comes from amazing service and word of mouth. I’ve always had first class service from the stores I’ve visited so it’s so surprising that they let their products speak for themselves. Oh & have you met Mr Bones? he is legendary.
Their products range from Skincare – serums, moisturiser, lipbalms to haircare, bodycare and even mens products too. They have most bases covered. I am popping back in later this month without makeup on so I can have a proper skin consultation and learn what products my skin would benefit most from. Kiehl’s offer this in all of their stores so if you can take advantage of some free skincare advice. I will let you know how I get on. I already have my eye on one of their exfoliators.
The Skin Rescuer is a product that Kiehl’s have been working on for a while and it is for targeting the signs of stress on your skin. Stress that causes breakouts / inflammation, dull skin / fatigue and dryness. It has four key ingredients Rosa Gallica Extract – to limit the impact of stress on the skin. Mannose – a sugar that helps protect and maintain the skins barrier function & leave your skin less vulnerable. Chamomile Extract (the only one I’d heard of) helps sooth and comfort skin and the final ingredient is Squalane – this is to replenish and hydrate skin. Its all very scientific. I am going to put it to the test on my dull, angry skin and see how it fairs. This retails for £29.50 for 75ml.
We were given lovely goody bags at the event and I am thrilled to be able to try all of these wonderful products.
Thank you for having me Kiehl’s, I am looking forward to giving all these products a whirl. Let me know what you would recommend from Kiehl’s. I love their Ultra Facial Moisturizer.
