I’ve got to get out more. I finally got around to visiting the Kiehl’s cosmetic store! I have been wanting to venture out for a while now and pick up a few products. What products you might ask? I had no idea -I just heard so many amazing things about the line-I just knew I had to try them out. But not by making a call to the store first- Glad I did because I found out they offer skin consultations and facials! Yes, facials! So, I went in light and started with a consultation first. Here’s how it went…
Amanda my skin expert first asked what type of skin I had. I explained I had normal to oily skin. She gathered a few products and proceeded to explain step by step what she was going to do. She grabbed the products that geared toward Normal to Oily skin. Which were The Calendula Line. Calendula is known for skin soothing properties, and is used as an herb in Chinese medicine. Below is a picture of all the products she pulled out.
Next she cleansed my skin using the Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash. She then went in with a toner- The Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner which has the actual flower petals to help cleanse, smooth and improve the feel of the skin. Because I deal with stubborn blemishes-she applied the Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution. This solution is meant to diminish the appearance of skin discoloration to boost skin clarity. Amanda applied a Hydro Plumping Serum that helps moisturize plump and smooth. Glycerin is a main ingredient , which is an humectant known to help retain moisture and soften skin. To seal all the products in Amanda applied the Ultra Facial Cream (-which was so hydrating- you guys.
Amanda did was is called a Skin Moisture Analyzer test-to test your skins hydration level to see if you are lacking hydration or if your on the brighter side of hydration. The tool kind of reminds me of a fancy thermometer -but for your skin. I was on the brighter side! Which means a lot-Last time I had a skin moisture test was at Sephora about two years, and I was lacking moisture terribly. So, I guess I’m doing something right. What a relief! She also did a Skin Type Test: This test reacts to sebum on the skin-to determine on whether or not your skin is dry, normal, combination or oily skin.
I enjoyed the experience-we can never learn too much about our skin. Since facials are provided at this location I will definitely be back for one! I highly recommend having a skin consultation done. Have you ever had a skin consultation done? Do you get facials on the regular?
