Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector with SPF 30


Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector with SPF 30

Recently, I’ve received an interesting eye product from Kiehl’s Singapore and it is the new Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective™ Dark Circle Perfector with SPF 30. Two things that really excite me – it provides broad spectrum UV protection with 100% mineral filter and it comes with a natural mineral tint universal shade.

In addition, it is formulated with a vitamin C-derived ingredient (Activated C) and it is free of paraben and fragrance. Vitamin C is said to help improve collagen production, reduce fine lines and pigmentation. :D

Dark circles under the eyes are a common cosmetic concern that affect over 139 million women globally. In Asia, dark circles are said to be the #2 concern behind wrinkles. The common causes are poor circulation, puffiness and age-related factors such as UV damage and melanin production (under eye discoloration).

Kiehl’s Chemists address dark circles by offering this new, 3-action solution that :

  1. Instantly brightens and perfects the skin: Formulated with Amino Acid treated Mineral Pigments to instantly help diminish the appearance of dark circles and brighten the under eye area.
  2. Brightens overtime by reducing hyperpigmentation: Activated C and Licorice Root are used within the formula to help reduce the appearance of pigmentation.
  3. Protection: Developed with Broad Spectrum SPF 30, utilizing a 100% mineral UV filter to minimize future UV damage and discoloration.

Dark circles are commonly attributed to thin skin and pooling of blood under the skin surface. A tough area to address and one that contributes to “an aged, tired-looking eye-area”, many eye creams simply rely on caffeine for puffiness and skin boosting ingredients that claim to make skin less transparent.

Kiehl’s Launching New Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate


Do you ever realize that even you have diligently applied anti-aging cream and serums on your face to help achieve a youthful looking skin, your skin still appears dull and tired-looking? Well, it is probably due to the “Age-Related Dehydration”, a condition that many Dermatologists are recently identifying as one of the key contributors to the appearance of aging skin.

Age-Related Dehydration is caused by an imbalance of moisture within the skin that occurs as we age, making skin more prone to showing signs of aging sooner. I was having this skin concern a few years ago but didn’t realize it was due to Age-Related Dehydration. Well, it’s never too late to know the cause and the solution to it.

Kiehl's Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate

Recently, Kiehl’s is proud to introduce the new Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate to help address this concern. This new formula is said to help correct the signs of Age-Related Dehydration by “flooding” the deepest surface layers of dehydrated skin to restore vital moisture. When skin is hydrated, it will appear more fresh, plump and youthful.

An event was held recently at L’oreal’s new office to learn more about this new serum.

Every guests were having fun decorating our plants during the event.

Kiehl’s Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate, was inspired by Dermatologist anti-aging hydration procedures, such as Juvederm® Hydrate, and is formulated with a potent complex of plant-based Glycerin – a natural “moisture magnet” and Shiso Leaf Extract, which helps protects the “anchoring” of deep moisture into the skin’s surface layers.

To achieve the significant hydration and penetration results, effectively addressing Age-Related Dehydration, Kiehl’s chemists first chose to formulate without waxes, eliminating any barriers, to ensure a more bioavailable preparation when applied on the skin.

Kiehl’s New Paraben-Free Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash


Kiehl's Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash

Recently, Kiehl’s has finally launched a new addition to its iconic Calendula Herbal Toner. Introducing the new Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash.

The iconic gentle Calendula Herbal Toner, first introduced in 1960, is formulated with hand-picked Marigold flower petals, which are still placed into each and every bottle by hand. One of the best-selling Kiehl’s products and worldwide customers’ favorite, Calendula Herbal Toner sells 1 every 20 seconds globally.

Kiehl’s Product Development Consulting Dermatologist, Dr. Adam Geyer, believe that the first step to achieving healthy-looking skin begins with gentle yet effective cleansing that protects the skin barrier. Harsh cleansers such as alkaline based ones can damage the skin barrier.

Kiehl's Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash

The formula of this new Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash utilizes 2 gentle surfactants to actively remove surface dirt and oil, while ensuring the skin barrier is protected. An acid-based surfactant was carefully selected to cleanse deeply while ensuring a gentle yet rich foam, while a vegetable-based surfactant further boosts the product’s ability to sweep dirt and oil away.

Kiehl’s New Micro-Blur Skin Perfector & 2 SPF Products


Kiehl's Micro-Blur Skin Perfector

Recently, I have received three products from Kiehl’s Singapore that are essential for keeping the heat of sun exposure in hot tropical climate like Singapore. They are the Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF 50 PA+++ UVA, the Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream SPF 50 PA+++ and a new interesting multi-benefit product – Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector.

The new Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector, retailing at S$52, is specially designed to instantly smooth skin and reduce the appearance of pores over time. Globally, pores are a major skin concern for women, regardless of age. Pores and imperfections become more prominent as skin is exposed to daily aggressors, such as UV ray exposure and pollution, throughout the day, resulting in a rough and uneven texture. With this in mind, Kiehl’s chemists created an innovative solution that instantly smoothes skin, providing a ‘soft-focus’, more uniform appearance while delivering lasting skin-perfecting benefits.

Review – Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration


As I age, my skin becomes duller, drier and more easily irritated. When my skin is dry or dehydrated, it will become oily and tight at the same time. The skin dryness also weakens my skin’s barrier. Hence, selecting a right moisturizer that provides adequate hydrating benefits is of utmost importance to me.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream Dry Skin

Kiehl’s has recently introduced the Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration for drier skin types, an extra lightweight formula that is said to give proven results in just one week.

Unlike most rich creams available on the market to treat dry skin types, Ultra Facial Cream Intense does not use traditional thickeners such as waxes or butters that can feel heavy on the skin. Instead it employs a lightweight cream foundation to impart a moisturizing yet weightless feel to the skin.

Applied a small amount of the cream on my dry hand. My hand is so dry that fine lines are pretty visible near at the back of my wrist.
