I’m amazed with the wide range of brands here in the UK. In the Philippines, I only know certain names like Nivea, Olay, Garnier, Clinique, some Korean brands, etc. There’s not much options to choose from compared to the availability of brands here in Europe.
So, one time when I was in a hunt to find a really nice hand cream as my Palmer’s lotion can no longer beat up the cold winter season, I ended up in Selfridges in Manchester. That ‘mini’ shopping ended up with more products. And mind you, it was bought from only one store!
I ended up with these:
This is an oil that I usually put on at night after I cleanse. I’ve tried Human Nature’s Sunflower Oil which was fab but somewhat greasy. It’s like putting cooking oil on the face. This concentrated oil from Kiehl’s usually dries up after a couple of minutes and not that greasy. I love oils, but I think from what I’ve tried, Kiehl’s is better.
The staff told me this is one of their bestselling products.
I’m all hands down on this one. When winter started, my cuticles started to get really dry to the point it nick. The Palmer’s lotion that I’ve been using prior winter was really good, but not for winter season. So, I was in the quest to find that will suit my needs and hopefully heal my cuticles.
The staff has recommended their Kiehl’s hand salve. She said it’s really good especially to people with dry hands. To be fair, it’s true. It healed my cuticles.
3. Kiehl’s Crème de Corps Light Weight Body Lotion (£28)
Another good thing with this toner is it has real petals in it! Fab!
5. Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser
I’ve been using Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser before I switched to Kiehls. However, Biore was not that ‘deep pore cleanser’ as the stubborn blackheads were still in.
I’m honestly loving Kiehl’s! I have nothing bad to say with this brand. Their products are like ‘holy grails’.
The midnight recovery concentrate is my favorite. I can definitely see a difference on my face. The dark marks are slowly fading and I’m confident to go out (nearby shop) with just a primer on!
This brand may be a bit expensive but it’s worth it. I believe investing on good skincare products is essential. What we use will have long-term effect and once our skin is damage it will take some time to heal.
