Every woman knows that there are certain things about summer that can truly wreak havoc on your life and if you have oily skin or clogged pores from summer sweat, makeup and environmental factors (a show of hands? same here), you need relief and you need relief fast. Kiehl’s Since 1851 to the rescue with their new Ultra Facial Oil-Free Collection, a new take on the cult classic product range but with the added bliss of oil-free technology to help reduce shine and maintain moisture.
See, here a little known fact for those of you who struggle with shine and scrub your faces on a regular basis: most oil-free products strip your skin of much-needed moisture in order to get rid of the excess oil. You’re thinking, “Great!” but yet, not so much. Your skin will do what it has to do to keep itself “hydrated” and if you keep scrubbing your face like you’re washing dirt off a car, all you’re going to do is aggravate it and dry it out. What will your skin do then? Create more oil. Not good.
The Kiehls Since 1851 products are a great way to cleanse the skin while sealing in essential moisture to maintain the balance of the skin and keep it clean and hydrated. Using water-infused humectants and naturally-derived sugar to help lock that essential hydration in, you get clean skin that controls shine, visibly reduce excess oil and glows with health for a 24-hour time period.
The product line contains four products: a cleanser, a toner, a lotion and a gel cream – all oil free and all ready to help you put your best face forward. If you’ve got uncontrollable shine and/or your regimen seems to be doing all the wrong things for you, I’d recommend getting your hands on the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free line. Like, now.
