KIEHL'S APOTHECARY IS WHERE IT'S AT
I’ve had a love affair with Kiehl’s for as long as I can remember, so to me, it was very natural to break out into the running man when an invite dropped in my inbox that read, “you’re invited to experience….(something fabulous)” I didn’t exactly know what I was about to experience, but it didn’t matter. When Kiehl’s summons, you don’t ask questions, you just go.
The brand recently launched an apothecary prep line that’s customized to address your specific skin concerns. So when I arrived for my personal consultation, the Kiehl’s rep and I discussed my skincare regimen and primary skincare concerns. We also talked about you guys, and how smart you are about ingredients and how to properly care for your skin.
A skin atlas was used to determine which complexes were right for my skin, along with a thermometer that sums up the overall health of your skin. I’m no spring chicken and the atlas didn’t prove me wrong, because it revealed that I’d benefit from the wrinkle reduction complex.
And to avoid looking like a dried-up chicken cutlet during the colder months, I opted for the brightening complex, because duh – who doesn’t want to get their glow on year ‘round?! And guess what the skin thermometer revealed? Girlfriend is dehydrated, y’all. I’m talking desert dry. I’m talking cactus dry with an ashy residue. On a scale of one to fifty with fifty ranking as the highest for hydration, my skin is at about twenty nine percent. Insert stunned face. If any skincare brand can get me together and closer to that fiftieth percentile, I know Kiehl’s can.
Later at home, I mixed the skin strengthening concentrate with my custom complexes – and applied to my clean face, followed by a moisturizer. As with anything, consistency is king, and ones skincare is no different. Of course I’ll keep you guys in the mix with what’s going on, but in the meantime, feel free to share your tried-and-true skincare regimens below. Chat soon!
