Remember how happy I was when Beauty Bulletin chose me to review Kiehl’s fab five skincare routine?
I couldn’t wait to use the products because I had heard so much about them. The review fell right into my goals for 2016 (great skin, get fit, eat healthy, make my first million… you know, the usual).
My favourite was the Midnight Recovery Concentrate, because it smelled of lavender and calmed me down after a rather hectic day. It also performed miracles on my face. I swear Kiehl’s stuffs each bottle with fairy dust because I looked like I had a facelift. I’m not even kidding. It was as if the Midnight Recovery Concentrate was an actual Instagram filter – in fact, Instagram should name a filter after this product.
Little did I know that my journey with Kiehl’s was about to take a turn. Day 3 into my challenge I experienced a break out on my chin – 3 pesky pimples weaseled their way to freedom, making a break for it right through my delicate skin. It was extremely painful and I could almost hear when it throbbed. I’ve always heard people say when you start a new skin regime, this sort of thing tends to happen, so I continued with the challenge. By day 7 the break out got worse so I decided to email Lori from Beauty Bulletin. She responded immediately and told me she would get Kiehl’s to contact me. I spoke to a Kiehl’s consultant that very day who then told me to stop using the products immediately.
p.s. My skin is healing nicely and I found a nice light tinted moisturiser to cover up the blemishes.
