Kiehl’s Apothecary Preparations

kiehl's apothecary preparations

Last week I was invited to attend the launch of Kiehl’s apothecary preparations.  These are skin care products that are specifically formulated to work for your skin and the issues that you want to address – how cool is that?!

When I got there, we started by checking the hydration of my skin – a test that I knew I’d fail, ugh. As expected, I was dehydrated.  Note to self – DRINK UP!  We also did another little test – and to be honest, I can’t even remember what it tested.


We then went through a book of different skin issues – wrinkles, tone, texture, pores, and clarity – and I evaluated my skin on a scale of 1 to 4 by comparing my skin to the pictures in the book they had.


I picked out two that I want to work on – pores and texture, and got my very own product formulated just to address those issues for me.

I’ve been using it for the past week, and I like it.  I have to admit that I’m usually horrible at being able to tell a difference in my skin when using products.  I think part of my problem is that I don’t know whether any differences I see are from one product that I just started using or another product that I’ve been using for a few weeks/months.  But I do have to say that the oil leaves my face feeling good and it smells great.  My face has also been feeling very soft for the past week and my pores even look smaller too!  I’ll keep you updated as I continue using it.

Kiehl’s also gave me their new botanical oil cleanser, which I LOVE. This is definitely going to be my new go-to face cleaner. Oil cleansers have been trending for a while, and this one is especially great because you don’t have to use another face wash afterward. It also has lavender oil in it, which I’m obsessed with ever since one of my reader’s turned me onto it (thanks Amanda!). If you have some time and are looking for a new face product, I’d definitely recommend checking out Kiehl’s apothecary preparations.  By the way, the consultation is free!

Are there any face products do you guys swear by?? Would love to hear!
