When it comes to holy grail skincare, I’m not sure you can go wrong when it comes to Kiehl’s. I’ve had various pots and bottles of their products floating about my collection for as long as I can remember, and whiner my skin feels a bit sensitised or overwrought, I invariably go back to their iconic Day Cream, and their limited edition Gardenia Body Cream is still one of my most-missed products. So, when I heard about their new launch, I couldn’t wait to give it a go.
The Vital Skin-Strengthening Hyaluronic Acid Super Serum might have a long name, but it’s a seriously potent formula which is perfect for protecting skin from winter aggressors. I’ve been using a couple of pumps each morning, applied straight to a clean face before moisturiser and then applying my makeup as usual. The serum has a light, almost watery consistency, which melts immediately into skin. It doesn’t feel like it adds a layer of product, and instead, it almost feels like it disappears, so if you’ve got oily skin, this won’t feel like it’s too heavy for you.
Even though the serum feels like almost nothing on the skin, it delivers some hard-hitting benefits which are perfect for beating winter skin. Thanks to a formula full of Glycerin and low molecular Hyaluronic Acid, the serum penetrates up to eight layers of skin, and works to strengthen the skin barrier. It’s this barrier which can help you look younger, and the dose of hydration ups your skin’s glow too! It’s a perfect combination which leaves skin looking and feeling it’s best – considering that we’re on the brink of winter, it’s the best way to guarantee you look and feel your best throughout the whole season.
Kiehl’s Vital Skin-Strengthening Hyaluronic Acid Super Serum is priced at £42 and is available here
