My Skincare Routine

For around a year now I have sworn by Tom Ford’s grooming range, using multiple products on a daily basis. However, recently I found that for some reason my skin had changed and the products were leaving me feeling like a total oil slick - it was time for a change.

I put out a call on Twitter for suggestions and you guys came through! My mate, and fellow blogger Robbie suggested I gave Kiehl’s a try, after hearing him rave about them I thought it was time to give them a go and see how they work for me. I believe if you go into a Kiehl’s store you can get a full consultation in which they tell you what products you should use for your skin type. Sadly we don't have a Kiehl’s anywhere near where I live, so I thought I’d risk it and give a few products a try, I picked them all up from House of Fraser. I obviously love them, which is why I thought I would let you know which products I have been using over the past few weeks. Here’s how my current skincare routine stands…

Step one

The first step goes one of two ways, either wash or scrub. Every other day I use a scub on my face to give it just a bit of a deeper clean, the rest of the week I use a daily wash. Currently the scrub I am using is the Kiehl’s Exfoliating Cleanser, it’s from their Age Defence range and gives you a ‘refreshed and younger looking appearance’ so I must look about 3 months old once I’ve used it. The wash I am using is from their Facial Fuel range - the Energising Face Wash is a gel cleanser that I tend to use in the mornings. It leaves you feeling fresh and ready to start the day, it also smells pretty good too!

Step two

After cleansing my face, I then use toner - currently I am using the Ultra Facial Oil-Free Toner. I decided to choose the oil-free one as I have quite combination skin, so I didn’t want to end up with a mirror-like forehead from the oil. I’ve been really impressed with it, it leaves my face feeling tight and fresh.

Step three

Once the toner has dried nicely on my face I use the Eye Alert cream. it’s a really nice thick gel that helps to reduce puffiness and dark circles - it’s super refreshing, but I tend to only really use it in the mornings as I find it helps to wake me up a bit easier (only a bit). I also use the Facial Fuel No-Shine Lip Balm - it’s great for keeping your lips from drying out, but also won’t make it look like you’ve put lip gloss on, it’s also got a super fresh mint flavour.

Step four

The final step of my daily routine is the super-famous Ultra Facial Cream - it now comes with Factor 30 which is massively important to wear on your face every day, and is a nice thick day cream moisturiser. I think most people that use Kiehl’s use the Ultra Facial Cream, it’s a 24-hour moisturiser that doesn't sit heavy on the skin at all, I would highly recommend it!

So far I am loving the Kiehl’s products, they work a treat on my skin and don't cost a tonne either. Big thanks to Robbie and everyone else that recommended I check out the Kiehl’s brand, if you haven't already I would highly suggest checking them out!
