For those of you who don’t know kiehl’s or have herd a little but still aren’t sure here’s some info ….

Kiehl’s started as a single pharmacy in Manhattan 1851 ! yes that’s 1851 i think that’s testimony to how amazing they really are. Dermatologist recommended skin care , hair care , body care , beauty & cosmetic, their products actually do as they say and have impressive results.

Kiehl’s On Wheels…

I was lucky enough to attend a Master class in GlOW for influencers recently held in Exeter at the Debenhams store, run by the kiehl’s on wheels manager Hannah Kiehl’s has a new counter recently opened up there definitely pop along and see them. I met some wonderful people and got to try out so many gorgeous products and i can say they all do what they are meant to do ! The moisturisers are INCREDIBLE ! the serums are fab , the cleansers and toners really leave your skin feeling super clean and ready for the day. They have this amazing product called Powerful-Strength Line Reducing Concentrate with 12.5% Vitamin C in, also if you don’t wear make up or many products please wear one and this one is important it’s the Ultra Light Daily UV Defense , it’s super important to protect your skin from harmful UV rays that cause sun damage and premature ageing. They have so many products there is nothing you won’t find .

The brand new product !! The GLOW…

Kiehl’s Glow Formula Skin Hydrator is wonderous!! i think, actually scrap that i know it’s one of my favourite products of theirs well of any beauty products!

A facial moisturiser infused with Pomegranate Extract and Illuminating Minerals for instantly glowing skin.

It instantly illuminates skin and improves glow over time, their ‘GLOW  ELIXIR’ provides instant radiance and fresh lightweight moisture. I can actually vote for that it really does !! It visibly diminishes dullness and boosts luminosity for a energized , healthy-looking glow. i cant praise this product enough. It can be worn under make up , as a highlighter or just on it’s own.

Below are some photos i took at the influencer launch i attended with great products and of course great people !!!

Look after your skin and only put on the best !!
