Over the past month or so, the weather in Scotland has been nothing short of crazy. We’ve had wind, rain and snow, and basically every sort of awful weather you can think of. It’s not been pleasant, and I swear that my hair hasn’t stayed straight all day in weeks! But even worse than fuzzy strands, is the damage this kind of climate can wreak on sensitive skin like mine. At the best of times, the outdoors has a real effect on my complexion, so when it’s as extreme as it has been, I really need a product that with protect and nourish skin like nothing else. Thankfully, I’ve found that Kiehl’s iconic Ultra Facial Cream is just the thing to keep my skin calm and moisturized.
I’ve kept a tub of this magical cream handy for what seems like years. It’s a real ‘old faithful,’ and I know that no matter how sensitized my skin is, the Ultra Facial Cream will soothe and heal it. The cream itself has a really light consistency – and it absolutely melts into skin. I massage a little of it on after a few drops of Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate (read about it here) and within a minute or two, my skin feels so soft and ready for makeup. The cream itself is scentless, and promises 24 hour moisture thanks to the plant extracts within the formula, and despite being so hydrating, my skin never feels like it’s too rich or leaves my skin oily or greasy.
If you’re looking for a new springtime staple, you must try out Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream.
It’s priced at £24.00 and is available here.
