It seems like the older we get the more stuff gets added to our beauty regimen. It’s not just face wash, a toner and moisturizer anymore. Sure, those basics are still there, but let’s throw in the serums, concentrates, oils, promises of pore tightening, rejuvenation, even skin tones and declarations of Benjamin Button-esque aging. Everlasting youth?! Sign me up! The thing is, when you read the directions, they all say, “apply after thoroughly cleansing the face,” and I’m left to figure out what order my serums, oils, creams and moisturizers go in. I know I’m not the only one that asks this question. Don’t worry, after some thorough research (read the internet, a friend in Singapore and the next best thing to being in the Asia, the mecca of the beauty industry, the beauty counter at a mall in Flushing), I present to you my skincare routine with my favorite products from Kiehls! Check out the video below. Do you have any suggestions? Favorite products? Let me know!
Here’s what I used in the video.
STEP 1 – Cleanse face with Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser. STEP 2 – Take care of any left over residue and hydrate with Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Toner. STEP 3 – Re-plump those cheeks! And get some elasticity back into your skin with Kiehl’s Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate. STEP 4 – Yes, I get 8 hours of sleep every night, without fail. Fake it until you make it with Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Eye-Opening Serum. STEP 5 – 24 hour moisture without being greasy or clogging pore, Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream is my go-to. STEP 6 – I thought BB and CC creams were just a passing craze, until I tried Kiehl’s BB Cream – Actively Correcting and Beautifying with SPF 50 PA. Damn. STEP 7 – Like polishing a beautiful piece of mahogany ;). My finishing touches, Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate.
