Kiehl's Blue Herbal and Ultra Facial : Too broke for my own good.

6:31:00 PM

Hi! How are all of you during this lovely weather? *sarcasm*

Just wanted to make a quick post about these grossly amazing products.




I have been blessed with acne-prone, roscacea induced, acidic, dry-combination and not to mention sensitive skin. Even if I use the mildest of mild cleansers, one wrong trigger, say, prolonged dust/pollution exposure/using the wrong skin care product/makeup ingredient, only once and my skin instantly, and I mean instantly flares up, turns read and/or get little white-heads or red itchy bumps.

For curing acne, I can only tolerate a small amount of Salicylic acid and I'm allergic to Benzoyl Peroxide so it's tricky to choose the right acne cure, among other things.

While using these for 5 of days, ( this supposedly was to last me 2 weeks according to the assistant. Sure. The moisturizer lasted longer though, maybe 3 more days. ) I didn't experience any flare-ups, itchiness and new bumps. It's extremely mild and the moisturizer felt cooling on my skin. Made it matte too.

The ONE thing that impressed me with this was when I looked in the mirror one day, right after washing my face with the gel cleanser was that my pores were pushing out the whiteheads on my cheeks.

GROSS I know.

But absolutely amazing. I've never encountered that with any skin regimen I followed or any skin product I've used. I was totally grossed out in a good way.

Sadly it's WAY out of the confines of my pocket. One bottle apparently costs around Php 1,500 (~$26 at Kiehl's website) if I'm not mistaken and for 100 ml or so, it's just not my style to spend so much on one product.

Damn it.

Let me just stick to gentle cleansers, change my sheets every 2 weeks, rinse my towels 10 f*cking times so there's no soap residue and be extremely vigilant in choosing products. Or suck it up and go to Kiehl's periodically to live off of their samples.

Damn it.

  3. Yeah my thoughts exactly "lol :(" Hahaha! I really would love to try full sized items of these though. I've also tried their BB cream it's nice but the smell is very "savory" something you'd find in the kitchen. It's so weird. Have you tried any products from them?

  12. That sucks when a product that really works for you is out of your price range! Maybe recruit some of your friends or family members to periodically ask for samples too? ;)

  13. I find it kinda embarrassing to do so. Maybe, just maybe I'd try that.

  14. ang mahal nga nila :( i was suppose to buy their eye cream after using samples like this but i noticed that right after i stopped using the eye creams which is suppose to make the areas around the eyes lighter / less wrinkles / and less puffy, bumabalik sa dating state asap. so i decided to look around pa muna :)

  15. Yeah. That's too bad, may something siguro sa ingredients nila to make your addicted to it or something :))

  16. I can relate to this! There are loads of things I want to buy from Kiehl's, but everytime I hear of the price I cringe. Sobrang mahal! But if you're planning to take the plunge, buy from their Shangri-La branch and look for Anne to assist you. She's sooo generous with samples, and you'd get to try lots of other products from them too that way. :)
