That's why I was so. darn. excited to partner with Kiehl's, a company that's been around for more than 160 years. They sent some products over to Every Good Woman for review and here is an honest to goodness review about them and some of the products I’ve been using lately!
Let's start with the Ultimate Strength Hand Salve, because it was my favorite. I rubbed some into my hands and it felt almost sexual, no joke. The best way that I can describe the texture of this cream is a matte-like consistency, it's truly fantastic. It made me pause for a second and treat myself to a little hand massage, who knew they could feel so good? Long story short, I had a long day with Isla and this hand massage gave me goosebumps. It was such a nice little treat that I gifted myself, and I think it's important that we mom's do that every once and awhile.
My conclusion: as a mom and homemaker, I am continually washing my hands throughout the day. After every diaper change, after using harsh chemicals to clean, after handling chicken for dinner, etcetera. The wear and tear on our hands is ridiculous! More importantly, however, my husband and our close friends (whose hands are severely callused and tough from their Naval career and being habitual weight lifters) tried the cream and they loved it. I once saw the skin on my husbands hand split between his thumb and index finger. No more! I will be buying the hand salve for Andrew and myself. And speaking of Andrew, I absolutely love Kiehl's collection for men! It's hard to find good 'beauty' products for men because nobody makes them! You can buy this hand cream for you or your loved ones here or check out some of Kiehl's men's collection below.
Why I will still become Kiehl's newest lip balm groupie: Despite the consistency, I applied it over 2 hours ago, ate a meal, and my lips are still moisturized and smooth. No picking urges, just beautiful lips! I would definitely sacrifice the 'luxurious experience' for real results.You can try out this lip balm here.
Why I won’t be buying this face cream: I believe that this cream could do wonders for someone with dry skin, but I have extremely oily skin and even after a thorough clean and conservative use it was just too powerful for my skin type. However, I would be super interested in trying their oil control collection. I did my research and looked at what customers had to say about the product, and the reviews say it all. I can say, however, that our good friend (and photographer!) Kyle struggles with acne and very dry skin, and he loved it! So I will be gifting this cream to him. In the end, I recommend finding a quality face moisturizer that suits your skin type needs. You can try Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream here or check out their oil control collection below.
