Kiehls Blogger Event, Nottingham and Products Review

A few weeks ago, I attended a Kiehls Blogger Event in Nottingham, which was a showcase of their range and products. Following the session, I booked into the Nottingham Kiehls store to have a skin consultation; I've always had very dry skin around my cheeks. And after trying what feels like every 'dry skin' product out there, I thought I'd give Kiehls a whirl. 

Bloggers Event
I'll start with a little bit about the event; it was just a great opportunity to learn more about Kiehls and how they started and the story behind it. It was great to try a mixture of their products and the lovely Kiehls consultants even demonstrated how to use their products to go through a full skincare routine.

It was hosted at the great; Ugly Bread Bakery and I did walk away with a few samples and goodies.

As I said, Kiehls is a brand I've heard about for a long time but never tried and booking in a consultation was an introduction to the brand. 

Kiehls Skincare Review
Right off the back of the event, I bought the Kiehls 'Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector.' My under eye circles have become pretty bad over the last few months, due to lack of proper sleep. However, in general an eye cream isn't something I've ever built into my skincare routine (or the lack of skincare routine I have). However, recently I've realised anything for my eyes can't be a negative.

So as soon they showcased this product at the event, I knew I wanted to try it. 

I've been using it for a couple of weeks and although the difference isn't massively noticeable, I can see it slightly myself. The cream comes out of the tube a little pigmented; like a concealer; however on the skin it doesn't have a colour.

I'm going to keep going and see how I feel once I've finished the tube. 

Upon my consultation I was recommended a few other products. It's well known to me that I suck at keeping an actual skincare routine. I'll wash my face with a face wash and then if I have makeup on take it off and apply a moisturiser; clearly not the way to do it. 

But the Kiehls consultant recommended a whole routine and one thing that really stood out to me was the Ultra Facial Toner. I'm afraid to use toners in the fear that I'll dry my skin out further. However, I came back with a sample of it and have been using it ever since. 

I've found that it isn't abrasive or feel like it's ripping my natural oils out; it's more of a milky, mild texture. 

To go with it, I decided to purchase the Ultra Facial Moisturiser after trying it on my skin, it felt a very thick and enriching consistency and one that wouldn't budge from my skin during the day. It claims to be a 24 hour, everyday hydrating formula and helps to reduce moisture loss.

I'm not going to lie, I've so far had mixed feelings on this. It's great when I'm just around the house but with the time of year as well, when I do go out in intense winds, I find my skin does dry out a little. (I also know I need to start drinking more water to combat this). However, it is a rich consistency so I'll keep going and see how I feel in a couple months time. 

I finally purchased their Midnight Oil. I've found I'm big fan of oils as these are most enriching for my skin type. However, I've found it tough to find a day oil that doesn't look too greasy. So to compromise and ease myself in I went for the Midnight Recovery Oil, which I do love! It feels great on my skin and soaks in perfectly. It doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy or cakey and I'm very impressed with it.

The consultant also gave me some samples, which I haven't used yet but am excited to. It'll be great to see if I have finally found a range my skin gets on with. So far I am pretty impressed with Kiehls, like I said I'll definitely keep going to see how I feel. 

I'd love some opinions on Kiehls if anyone has tried their range and any recommendations on what to try.
