Kiehls Skin Rescuer Reviewed

As part of my blog birthday celebrations (three years old this month), I’ve been lucky enough to be sent some fantastic products to review. The first product is a beauty one and came courtesy of the very lovely Jen Hale from Kiehls. Kiehls sent me a bottle of their skin rescuer to try out, and I have to say the results were particularly impressive.

KIEHL’S Skin rescuer 75ml 

I must admit that I had never used Kiehls products before, although I had heard and read very good things about them from both bloggers and in magazines. This product promises to reduce the visible signs of stress on skin, such as that caused by skin fatigue, de-hydration, blotchiness and redness. The skin rescuer seemed to be a product that my face needed, after a hot summer of too much sun which has caused breakouts, particularly in the t-zone area. Dry skin around the edges of my face was another effect of a long, dry summer, and lots of late nights burning the midnight oil had also contributed to skin that was a bit lacklustre. So, all things considered, the Kiehls skin Rescuer couldn’t have arrived at a better time.

The product proved easy to use, I simply applied it to my clean face in the morning after washing. A small pump from the bottle proved enough to massage into my whole face, and as the liquid was very light and thin in texture, the skin absorbed it easily without being left sticky or shiny. There was a lovely fresh scent to the moisturising treatment, a combination of camomile and Rosa Gallinca botanical extract, this added to the fresh but soothing feeling this gave your skin as it absorbed.

Just use a small amount – it goes a long way.

I’ve been using this for a week now, and my skin already feels softer, and less parched around the edges and under the chin. It is such an easy product to add into your routine, and the bottle size makes it ideal for travelling and holidays, or even to keep in your bag if you work in air conditioned offices. Because it offers both the quick fix for short-term visible signs and longer term premature ageing effects, this is a product that deserves the term Hero. I would highly recommend adding this to your skincare routine.

Selfridges Destination Christmas

Even in the realms of Christmas in July events, there is always something super special about Selfridges Christmas in July. For fans of the festive season, it is truly destination Christmas.

Held in the industrial confines of the Old Selfridges Hotel, this years event had snow, a giant Polar Bear, a Kate Spade pop up shop and some of the most mouth-watering gorgeous food treats I have ever tasted. There were also William and Kate Christmas cards, dancing pigs from Giffords Circus, a Tatty Devine ‘make your own bracelet’ stand and so much more…

The one thing I always love about Selfridges Christmas events are the range of items that are available for a wide range of prices. These range from the fun of the Cara Delavingne colouring books to exquisite shoes from Charlotte Olympia and Jimmy Choo. Beauty was represented by the ultimate in YSL nail polish  collections, every single shade in one totally amazing gift set, and there were also luxury products from Jo Malone and Kiehls. There was also another new colour from Azature, not quite million dollar nails,  but certainly getting there.

Just feast your eyes on my favourite products from the Ultimate Christmas Event…and get compiling that Christmas list…
