Kiehl’s is the quality skincare brand, established in a local pharmacy in NYC in 1851. Years later, in 1962, Kiehl’s Pharmacy began introducing bold new products such as Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner, Blue Astringent Lotion (loved by Andy Warhol), Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1, and Ultra Facial Moisturizer — all still among the company’s best sellers today.
In previous interviews with The Version, celebrities including Marvin Humes and Jamie Redknapp have told us they swear by the brand. So why’s it so good and what have they got to offer this Christmas?
We tried a selection of their products and we were not disappointed.
Ultra Facial Cream
This is the brand’s #1 selling product. With a unique lightweight texture and up to 24-hour lasting hydration, our “ultra-hydrator” immediately leaves skin up to 2.3X more hydrated.* Formulated with Glacial Glycoprotein and olive-derived Squalane, this non-greasy, lightweight moisturiser is uniquely formulated for all skin types – even sensitive skin. Now proven performance in everyday extreme relative humidities.
Our verdict: It’s easy to see why this cream is so popular. It’s non-greasy so it feels so good during and after application. You’ll really notice the difference between this and cheaper alternatives. It has a natural smell and a very satisfying, thick texture. This is a Christmas gift that you can’t go wrong with, and it costs just £26.
This men’s facial moisturiser with SPF 20 re-energises and revives fatigued, dull skin. Formulated with Caffeine, Chestnut Extract and Vitamins C and E, our men’s moisturiser provides antioxidant protection in addition to softening and refreshing skin. Smooth on hydration and experience the fresh scent of our re-energising moisturiser and sunscreen for men.
Our Verdict: Another classic Kiehl’s classic this and again, it’s very satisfying to use. Our skin felt so clean and a little tingly after (in a good way). Genuinely, we felt rejuvenated and glowing. This costs £33 and the man in your life will love you for it.
Creme De Corps
Moisturise dry skin with our elegant, non-greasy body lotion. This hydrating body cream is formulated with Cocoa Butter and Beta-Carotene, and leaves skin feeling elegantly soft. Continued used will leave your skin feeling beautifully softer, smoother and hydrated, making this intensive moisturiser a firm customer favourite.
Our Verdict: We love the design of this product, which is so reminiscent of Kiehl’s origins. Enriched with Cocoa Butter, Squalane and Beta-Carotene this will leave dry skin feeling super soft and glowing. It’s another classic Kiehl’s product and one we’ll keep coming back to. This one costs just £28.
