The 2 Kiehls Products I Use Religiously

Kiehls eye and face moisturizer

Like everyone else, I have my favorite beauty products that I use over and over.  For me, two of those products are by Kiehls. Yes, I have tried, and am always open to trying, other beauty products but in recent years, I’ve found that I always come back to Kiehls, particularly the Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream and Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Moisturizer. It’s gotten to the point that I don’t even really try other products in these 2 categories.

Product Details – Kiehls Eye Cream

The Eye cream ($43 for .5oz) came in to my life when I was feeling self conscious about the wrinkles around my eyes. Yes, I’m human and like everyone else, I do have crows feet. I just feel mine are worse for my age (ugh, I just turned 39 in July) then others. Blame it on the years I spent in college in sunny Miami without wearing sunscreen daily, but without resorting to Botox (yet!), I think it’s important to use one daily at this point in my life. After trying a few different eye creams, I ended up with the Kiehls Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream and have been a convert ever since.

Kiehls Powerful Eye

What I Like

  • It’s unscented
  • Thick and absorbs well
  • A little goes a long way
  • Mid price range
  • Moisturizing
  • Contains a combination of micronutrients, Copper PCA and Calcium PCA

If you are younger then me and lucky enough  not to have crows feet yet, the Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado ($29 for .5oz) is extremely popular and just as moisturizing. The difference is it doesn’t have ingredients that are targeted for wrinkles. 

Product Details – Kiehls Moisturizer

I starting using the Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream SPF 30, ($54 for 1.7oz ) last Summer when I couldn’t find a moisturizer I felt had enough moisture and SPF. Some of my other beauty products contain SPF but I felt it was important for my moisturizer to have it since it’s the first product I put on every morning (after my serum – I currently use this Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Serum but I have used this Kiehls Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate during the Winter and liked it) and therefore, the first line of defense against wrinkles. You could use it at nighttime as well.

I should mention I’m in between nighttime moisturizers but I’m seriously considering switching to the Midnight Recovery Concentrate Oil ($46 for 1oz). It can be used with a moisturizer or on it’s own. I gotten a bunch of samples of it before and thoroughly enjoy it every time I’ve used it. I particularly like the smell – I find it really calming at night time!
