I haven’t a clue what this gift box is actually called. And is it too late to be posting about Christmas gifts? Anyhow, this is one I got very kindly from my boyfriend and I am very excited to try – I have been a fan of Kiehl’s for a while now, slowly adding bits and pieces to my skincare collection when I can. So when I received this I was quite excited, as it is a four-piece set that contains lots of stuff I’ve never used before.
First up is a teeny-weeny sample of the Midnight Recovery Concentrate, which I have already spoken about – awesome for travel size, and the little vial even comes with an eyedropper! Next up is a full-size jar of the Ultra Facial Cream, which I have heard good things about — according to the website, it is their #1 moisturizer. This should come especially handy in the winter time when I need to inject a bit more moisture into my skin. I haven’t tried it on my face yet, but it appears to be a lightweight gel-cream texture, my favourite! Another thing I’m sorely needing in my life right now is a good, sturdy hand cream, so I’m hoping the Ultimate Strength Hand Salve comes to the rescue. I just applied some and it has a nice, zingy scent and doesn’t feel very greasy. Lastly, is a travel size bottle of their famous Creme de Corps, which I have sniffed in stores and wanted to try for ages, but couldn’t be bothered to spend the money, so I’m glad I have some of this in my life now, and it’s a handy size for traveling.
The salesperson also threw a couple samples into the bag, which is always nice – it’s stuff that is targeted towards men, but I have absolutely no qualms about using. First up is the Facial Fuel Energizing Moisturizer, which is meant to help relieve fatigue, and then the Facial Fuel No-Shine Hydrator, which looks like a great option for those of us who suffer from oily skin.
Who knows, I might find some new favourites. What Kiehl’s products are you using and loving, and what would you recommend?
