Longtime Kiehl’s fan here and always eager to receive samples of the latest concoctions for review. When the cult-fave beauty brand released their Rosa Arctica Youth Regenerating Cream a couple of years ago, I was among the first to slather it on. It’s a good cream but the thickness just wasn’t a perfect for me. Needless to say I was psyched when I got the press release about the new Lightweight Cream and Eye Balm! Upon receiving the samples, I opened and used them immediately and have been applying nightly since they arrived. I’m thrilled with these products. The consistency is perfection and the scent of both formulas is amaze.
Of course the most important part is how they work and what makes them so special. According to Kiehl’s HQ, these new formulas “harness the power of the rare Resurrection Flower to wake up skin cells and trigger physiological reactions resulting in healthier, regenerated, and more youthful skin.”
“Haberlea rhodopensis is a unique biological wonder that can dry out completely and survive periods of dryness during unfavorable conditions for up to 31 months as an environmental survival strategy. Then, when the optimal growth conditions arise, the plant resumes normal growth within hours, with only a few drops of moisture, and is restored in one to two days. Our formulas bring that unique revitalizing property to the skin, offer intense hydration, and help to minimize the appearance of lines, increase firmness and elasticity, and smooth the overall texture of skin.”
If you ask me, it’s never too early to start slathering on anti-aging creams and I believe these two will remain faves in my arsenal of youth-defying products.
