I found some lovely present ideas for your beloved friends, brothers, fathers, grandfathers, uncles and husbands and all the other male people you want to share a present with ; ) nice shaving tools and creams is something almost all the men can need at least once a year, I am saying this because lately I see a lot of unshaved men and it is super trendy to have a beard, but also these guys will eventually shave. did you already shop all your presents? I am almost done as I am leaving on christmas holidays next monday afternoon.
there is a new video on my YOUTUBE channel and it is about the new KIEHLS collection called CLEARLY CORRECTIVE WHITE! have a look and maybe you will be the lucky one to get the SKIN BRIGHTENING EXFOLIATOR – I will upload a give away via my FACEBOOK – stay tuned!
these are the products that I received:
Deep Moisture Clarifying Cream
Clarity Activation Toner
Skin Brightening Exfoliator
Precision Lifting & Pore-Tightening Concentrate
CLEARYL CORRECTIVE WHITE:
these two lovely things found their way to me and I have been using them the last couple of weeks. ooh dear, I like them both!
VICHY Capital Soleil BB Creme SPF 50
It has a lovely texture and a rather light coverage. I love BB Creams and I love high SPF protection and here I have found the perfect combo. A BB Cream with SPF 50!
KIEHL’S Micro Blur Skin Perfector
Apply this and you are ready to go, this product immediately blurs all my imperfections into oblivion! I have to say I am very much impressed! I use it after my Creme and Foundation and wow I can really see a before/after effect. I hope to be able to catch this on camera and show you.
aaww.. these products are amazing! they all do their one certain job very perfectly. something against the sun – something for a nice self tan without being exposed to the sun – another nice product that makes you look like you have spent the weekend in the sun with a couple of moves – a CC cream to protect the hair and a super nice soothing cooling aloe gel for the face after a day in the sun!
I am soon packing my bags for my roadtrip to ITALY and for sure I am going to bring these!
hahahaha, well yes, it is really true! never change a winning team, right? thanks to Passion for Brands I can call MIA2 by Clarisonic and Kiehl’s Calendula Deep Cleansing Face Wash my own and I love them both and when used together it’s like having a facial at the salon – every day! sigh! I have very sensitive skin with couperose on my cheeks and that’s why I have to be very delicate to my skin as it is irritated very easily. I use the Clarisonic brush for sensitive skin and a tiny bit of the Face Wash in the shower and it’s just the best way to clean my face in the morning!
Here you can read my post about MIA2 and
my post about Kiehl’s Calendula Deep Cleansing Face Wash
ooh dear! there are just too many nice things out there. this time I saw some very nice products by Kiehl’s – I hope you like what I like 🙂
Calendula Herbal Extract Toner
this is one of the best toners I have ever used. atm I am out of it but I m definately going to repurchase it!
Kiehls Vetiver and Black Tea
mmhhmm, I love this fragrance! I already used up a travel size bodylotion and bodycleanser and am thinking about getting the fragrance.
Soy Milk and Honey Whipped Body Butter
no matter if summer or winter I like my skin to be smooth and silky. I have not used this body butter yet but I smelled it when I was at the Kiehls Store in ZH and I really really love it – hence I need to have it!
Micro Blur Skin Perfector
wow – this thing really works – I tried a sample and loved the result. All I know is that you use it on top of your foundation and that it contains lentils. now I wanna know more about the magic behind it.
Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1
I have read a lot about this very famous and beloved Kiehl’s product but so far I have never tried it. thats about to change soon!
Vetiver and Black Tea Body Lotion
so you already know that I really like the fragrance! I also loved the consistency of the product and have just finished my travel size body lotion.
Kiehl’s has presented the CALENDULA DEEP CLEANSING FOAMING FACE WASH with Calendula Flower Extract for normal to oily skin type and I was so lucky to get to test it for you. It totally fits my skins needs and I have used the Kiehl’s Centella Cleanser before – so I do have something to compare the product to. I have used it twice and I love it already thats what I can say so far. but I really need more time to be able to review the product. so I will get back to you about it. stay tuned.
what does the packaging say
This rich, gel formula activates with water to create a creamy, dense foam that gently removes impurities without stripping skin of its essential moisture. Formulated with Calendula Flower Extract and Glycerin this deep cleansing face wash helps to soothe and replenish skin without over drying. Skin looks and feels instantly refreshed and revitalized. Soap-free and Sulfate-free.
as I have already told you in my previous post the KIEHLS blogger meet and greet in Zurich was a blast. Ana from the Kiehls Team analyzed my skin and showed me products that would be perfect for me.
I already used Kiehls Centella Skin Calming Facial Cleanser to wash my face. After this step I used to apply the Calendula Herbal Extract Toner but as you can see in the photo above – its empty – so I am currently trying the Ultra Facial Toner – and I have to admit that I prefere the Calendula Toner 🙂 and I will definitely repurchase it!
as I like to use many different products because there is always something new to try and test I also have different Kiehls products for day and night. Every other night I use the Over Night Biological Peel and the Midnight Recovery Concentrate and if I needed extra care I used the Centella Recovery Skin Salve on top of the Midnight Recovery Concentrate.
now I wanna introduce my NEW products – I got the Ultra Light Daily Defense SPF 50 – a super light sunscreen for under the foundation. The Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution – I have applied it under the Midnight Recovery Concentrate but I have only used it twice ever since. I looooove the texture. Its a funny gel that instantly is being absorbed by the skin with a very fresh fragrance. I will continue to use it and will get back to you about it and explain you in detail what it did or what it didnt do at all for me! I also got two luxury samples of the Skin Rescuer and the Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream. I am wearing the skin rescuer at night over the Midnight Recovery Concentrate together with the eye cream. I like both of them so far and will continue to use them until they are empty and will then make a decision to either buy them or not. we will see 🙂 during the day I am still using the Clinique Superdefense SPF20 but it will only last for a week or two. so I might really start using the Skin Rescuer also during the day and not only at night on top of the Midnight Recovery Concentrate.
my dears I think I have shared everything I can share regarding Kiehls skin care – I hope you liked it. If you havent tried any Kiehls products yet then I can only advise you to check out my holy grail – the Midnight Recovery Concentrate <3 enjoy! xx

“I AM TRYING OUT SOMETHING NEW..
…something for my colored hair and my dry scalp.”
my friend Amanda, who works at the KIEHLS booth inside MANOR Basel was so nice to set me up with some samples to try. She recommended the KIEHLS SUNFLOWER shampoo and conditioner together with the MAGIC ELIXIR for my dry scalp and colored hair.
so what did I do?
last night before going to bed, I massaged the MAGIC ELIXIR oil into my scalp and gently moved the oil from the roots to the ends. I wrapped a towel around my head and went to bed. This morning my hair looked sooo greasy but it smelled very very good. So I used the SUNFLOWER shampoo and conditioner to wash out the oil. And the result is stunning. My scalp is not dry anymore, no dandruff and my colored hair shines super bright!
would I buy these products?
I would definitely buy the MAGIC ELIXIR OIL and the SUNFLOWER CONDITIONER. The Shampoo I didnt like so much as it leaves a funny feeling on the hair and this only goes away once you have applied conditioner. I feel like the shampoo dries out my hair and I dont like that.
stay tuned for more things that I have tried out!
KIEHLS Over-Night Biological Peel
ladies and gentlemen I can highly recommend this little wonder product by KIEHLS. I used it every other night for the last 2 months and I have never ever experienced such an amazing change of my skin before! I have very sensitive skin with cuperose cheek parts and so far I didnt react to well to exfoliating products until I met this little miracle! please let me know about your skincare must-have for 2014 by leaving a comment below. thanks!
have a wonderful start into 2014! xx
I have very sensitive skin and couperose parts on my cheeks which make me look very healthy. I was in need of a new cleanser and cream and strolled thru Manor in Basel looking for something new. And then I stopped at the KIEHLS booth and was introduced to their line for sensitive skin. CANTELLA SKIN CALMING FACIAL CLEANSER and CANTELLA RECOVERY SKIN SALVE – because I am always so curious about everything I had to buy them and see what they would do to my skin.
so I went home and tried it and really like the effect it had to my irritated redish skin. and after a couple of weeks I used the last drops of my LANCOME toner and went back to the Manor KIEHLS booth in order to check whether they have a suiting toner for me – and they did – CALENDULA HERBAL EXTRACT TONER alcohol free. Amanda, the lady who works at the KIEHLS booth checked my skin and asked me what kind of peeling/exfoliating I am using, well, because of my cuperose and sensitive skin I was not happy with the peelings I have tried so far because they often gave me a uncomfortable feeling or they made my skin look even more red. Amanda introduced me to the OVER NIGHT BIOLOGICAL PEEL which works without water. so again I went home and tried them for several days and again I was very happy with what I bought. As a thank you present I got 3 sample sizes of ROSA ARCTICA, SUPER MULTI CORRECTIVE CREAM and the SKIN RESCUER STRESS MINIMIZING DAILY HYDRATOR.
my regimen for day and night
I clean my face with the CANTELLA SKIN CALMING FACIAL CLEANSER either with water or with a damp washcloths afterwards I use the CALENDULA HERBAL EXTRACT TONER with a cotton pad and then use the CANTELLA RECOVERY SKIN SALVE or the SKIN RESCUER STRESS MINIMIZING DAILY HYDRATOR – I do that day and night – and every second night I use the OVER NIGHT BIOLOGICAL PEEL.
the products really even out my skin tone and the peeling also reduces the size of my pores – I am super happy with KIEHLS.
what do I want to check next? the MIDNIGHT RECOVERY CONCENTRATE – I only heard good things about it and will give it a try!
