TOP WINDOW SILLDecember 4, 2014
Here's my version of Into the Gloss': Top Shelf, Top Window Sill. Ha, get it? Who knows this might become a monthly thing. So, I'm typically the type of person who likes to stick to what I know - in terms of skincare. I guess you can classify me as the, non-adventurous type when it comes to skincare. That being said, I've been loving Kiehl's lately, always heard great things from the brand. So I decided to finally venture out and get some of their top-sellers. First one up is the Kiehl's Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash. I recently bought this face cleanser because I was running low on my Bioderma Sébium Foaming Gel, which I bought in Paris nearly 2 years ago (I bought 2 packs of 2 - super cheap at the French pharmacy). The reason why this Calendula Face Wash caught my eye was because it's soap-free! I find that soap-free cleansers work better on my skin because it is less drying. They don't strip your skin, yet it still leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean. I've only had this cleanser for a week now, but I can already tell that it's going to be a repurchase. Oh and ps: a little goes a long way.
This, just about every beauty blogger has raved about product, NUXE Rêve de Miel Lip Balm is the BALM DOT COM! With chapped everything season coming up, this balm will be the perfect honey blanket to protect those lushes lips from the harsh winter breeze. This balm was another product I stocked up on while in Paris, because it's that good. It also works super well under lip products - almost like a primer. The balm is matte (no shine whatsoever), so it doesn't effect those burgundy- wine stain lips during this winter holiday season.
Some other Kiehl's products that I've been absolutely loving are the Midnight Recovery Concentrate and Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque. The Midnight Recovery Concentrate is seriously magic in a little blue bottle. I purchased this miracle product around early June, so I had about 6 months to test it out. And I can honestly say this is hand down the best skincare product I've ever tried. It makes my skin super smooth/ hydrated and glow in the morning. I like to use about 2 to 3 drops under my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel.
And finally, the Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque by Kiehl's. Everyone needs a good Sunday face mask or whenever your self-pamper day is during the week. I like to use a pore cleansing mask at least once a week, twice if it's an extra stressful week. This Rare Earth mask helps unclog pores and get rid of any dead skin cells from the week. I've had this mask for about 2 weeks. But, from the few times I've used it - I can say it does the job, leaving my skin feeling refreshed AND it isn't extremely drying or hard to wash off (major pluses in my book when it comes to face mask). Hope you guys liked reading the first of my Top Window Sill!
