Kiehl’s apothecary preparations review 

Here it is! The big review of a special product with big promises.

I was hoping for a miracle in a bottle to minimise my pores and smooth out my wrinkles.

After using this product every night religiously for the last 4 weeks I have come to my verdict.

My skin feels softer and make up application is smoother. My open pores on my cheeks do seem less noticeable but not totally cured. My wrinkles(Furrows) haven’t diminished but my skin does seem somewhat healthier. 

I did also up my water intake to help the process and this did help hydrate my skin.

Overall, it’s a beautiful product to have and to use. 

Would I recommend it? 

Yes! Yes,I would. 


Because it’s a luxury everyone should witness and because of it’s pharmaceutical background and appearance along with the effect it has on your skin, it definitely does improve your skins texture and appearance although it doesn’t work miracles. 

I guess I’ll have to just keep saving for Botox and fillers and I’ll continue using my Kiehl’s apothecary preparation until a miracle in a bottle comes my way in the endless search for youth.

Kiehl’s Apothecary 

Today I received my very own personalised skin care miracle in the post. The beautiful people from Kiehl’s asked me what my two skin concerns were. 

1. Lines and wrinkles 

2. Open pores

And this morning I received my prescribed by Kiehl’s remedy. 

I will be starting this tonight and will report back in a few weeks and let you know what I think. To be honest though, I’ve always loved Kiehl’s since working with it in Blue Eriu back in the day so I don’t think I’ll be disappointed. 


Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil from Kiehl’s

There’s a new cleanser in the Kiehl’s family!

Meet Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil, our first lightweight essential oil facial cleanser.
How does it work? This all-in-one, non-comedogenic cleansing formula emulsifies with water to become a cleansing milk. This gently, yet effectively helps dissolve difficult-to-remove makeup and impurities – without over-drying. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Cleansing Oil not only leaves skin fresh and clean, but also balanced, soothed and prepared for optimal night-time replenishment.

Bye-bye panda eyes, hello beauty sleep!
What’s more, the facial cleanser is made from an aromatic blend of pure botanical oils: Squalane, a planted-derived lipid with a natural affinity for skin; evening primrose oil, rich in Omega-6 Fatty Acids; and lavender essential oil.
It’s soap-free, sulphate-free and mineral oil-free, so for your one-stop cleanser look no further than Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil. 


  • Gently massage a few pumps’ worth of product in a circular motion into your skin
  • Then add water to gently melt and dissolve all traces of dirt, oil, sunscreen, and face and eye makeup; then gently rinse away.
  • Use as the first step to your night-time skincare routine, as it leaves skin feeling soft, supple and prepped for optimal night time replenishment.
  • Don’t forget that you can use this to remove eye-make-up remover too, as it’s ophthalmologist tested for sensitive eye area.

I can’t wait to try this 😍🌟❤️



Kiehl’s chemists proudly introduce Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream, a 99.6% naturally-derived formula that is the first of its kind to leverage the combined efficacy of two world-renowned wellness

ingredients – New Zealand Manuka Honey and Korean Red Ginseng Root. While cocooning the skin in a comforting and nourishing texture, this breakthrough moisturizer helps skin resist hydration loss[4]

while also aiding in recovery from existing skin damage. In a clinical test[5], skin’s radiance and glow improved by 41.8% while skin’s texture and smoothness improved by 39.7%.


To assess the advanced efficacy of their new formula, Kiehl’s chemists solicited an unprecedented

“Healthy Skin Torture Test.” In the study, a Healthy Skin Panel of women ages 20 to 30 (Control) were assessed for skin radiance, smoothness and softness, while a Less Healthy Skin Panel of women ages 35 to 49 (Treated with Pure Vitality) were tested for the same attributes before and after use of Kiehl’s new formula. After 8 weeks of using Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream, the Less Healthy Skin panel demonstrated clinical scores that were either on par[6] with or surpassed[7] the Healthy Skin Panel.


  • Smoothes Texture
  • Renews Radiance
  • Helps Stimulate Skin Cell Renewal



Manuka Honey is sustainably harvested in New Zealand.

Manuka Honey is a dark, creamy mono-floral honey is valued in medicine for its anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties and ability to treat skin wounds, even post surgery[9]. Compared to any other form of honey, it has the highest polyphenol level and anti-oxidant activity[10], which help to protect the skin from oxidative damage such as pollution and UV. It is also known to stimulate collagen producing fibroblasts and keratinocytes, helping repair damage and maintain skin barrier hydration due to its high sugar content and 4x more minerals than any other honey[11].  


Prior to formulation, Kiehl’s chemists tested the ingredient in a neutral base to evaluate its capacity to accelerate skin barrier recovery by reducing TEWL[12] vs. control site. After 2 hours TEWL decreased by 70.07% on the treated site vs 57.08% untreated[13] demonstrating the superior ability of this ingredient to maintain skin barrier.



Red Ginseng Root is sourced from Korea and is a botanical used in Asian beauty regimes.

  • skin’s radiance and glow
  • Helps stimulate surface skin cell renewal for smoother-feeling skin
  • Enhances a youthful-looking softness

Korean Red Ginseng Root has been linked to stimulation and protection of the cellular energy pathways that begin to malfunction or slow down over time. This highly potent form of ginseng protects the cell’s mitochondria from oxidative stress and increases the production of energy-related molecules and pathways[15].

      New moisture treatment is suitable for use twice daily, even for sensitive skin

      Kiehl’s Since 1851 introduces Clearly CorrectiveTM Brightening and Smoothing Moisture Treatment – an ultra-lightweight, innovative hydrator featuring dermatologist-trusted Glycolic Acid in concert with the company’s signature skin clarity ingredient, Activated C (a high-performance Vitamin C derivative). 
       In 2011, utilizing Activated C, Kiehl’s chemists first established leadership in skin clarity with the launch of Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution (CCDS). To date, this formula is one of the most trusted serums for skin clarity, winning 19 global beauty awards and selling over 4 million bottles worldwide. 

       14 months ago, Kiehl’s chemists began formulating a new type of hydrator—an innovative moisture-treatment—to target 3 key causes of loss of clarity: rough texture, dehydration, and discoloration. 

       “CCDS remains one of the most effective targeted treatments for clarity on the market, but treatment serums are only one component of a complete skincare regimen,” shares Helen Sung, AVP Kiehl’s Product Innovation. “We asked ourselves, how could we address the key causes of loss of clarity? Naturally we could introduce additional doses of our skin clarity ingredients into a moisturizer, a central step in a regimen. But the true innovation would be in helping skin to better reflect light, and to be more receptive to the formula’s ingredients. This is where glycolic acid offered an important enhancement to the equation.”

       While highly effective, Glycolic Acid can be irritating and dehydrating to skin. “Widely used as an agent in peels, it is a less popular ingredient in hydrators,” explains Dr. Adam Geyer, Kiehl’s Consulting Dermatologist. “When used in moisturizers, many formulate with glycolic acid at such a high level that it requires very specific usage and rarely allows for the moisturizer to be easily incorporated into a standard skincare regimen. And these formulas are generally unsuitable for those with sensitive skin.”  

       Always focused on the needs of even its most sensitive skincare customers, Kiehl’s chemists utilized precise concentrations of the ingredient to retain its exfoliation benefits, while remaining tolerable and appropriate for sensitive skin types.

       “We intentionally used a lower level of Glycolic Acid in our formula to help soften surface skin rather than to aggressively peel it. This complements the Activated C in the formula by helping skin to be more receptive to the skin clarifying ingredients,” stated Dr. Geoff Genesky, Kiehl’s Head Chemist. “Within the formula, we also offer moisturizing benefits by tapping into the nourishing and protecting properties of Peony and White Birch. This careful balance is our true formulation achievement. This moisture treatment not only offers 24 hour hydration to balance the keratolytic properties of glycolic acid, but our formula is so tolerable that it can be used twice a day or even applied with a thicker layer as an overnight masque.”

       Actively brightening, smoothing, and refining skin for a smoother texture, Clearly CorrectiveTM Brightening and Smoothing Moisture Treatment is clinically demonstrated to target the key factors of loss of clarity. After just 1 week, 86% of women agreed their skin had a luminous and translucent glow and felt soothed, while 94% agreed their skin felt moisturized. 


      Clearly CorrectiveTM Brightening and Smoothing Moisture Treatment leverages the efficacy of Glycolic Acid in a gentle and hydrating formula, which when combined with the complementary ingredients in the formula, targets the 3 key causes of loss of clarity. 

      1. Glycolic Acid supports desquamation to help improve skin texture: Between the ages of 30 and 80, skin’s epidermal turnover rate can slow by 30–50%[1], causing dull and rough texture. Texture changes cause uneven light reflection, diminishing skin’s brightness and luminosity. Glycolic Acid helps to gently exfoliate the top layers of the skin allowing light to better reflect off of skin for a more luminous appearance. Proper exfoliation also allows for better penetration of subsequent ingredients or serums.  

      2. White Birch & Peony address dehydration: As skin ages, moisture binding molecules within skin begin to deplete. Essential moisture escapes through the skin’s surface, which contributes to dull, tired looking skin, coarse texture, and more visible fine lines and wrinkles. To address this, White Birch Extract and a blend of moisture-binding humectants in the formula draw moisture from the air to help offer 24 hour hydration in the skin’s layers. Peony Extract helps neutralize free radicals, helping to maintain skin health so that it more readily receives and maintains moisture.

      3. Activated C decreases discoloration: With age, skin is exposed to environmental aggressors, leading to oxidation and resulting in discoloration on the skin’s surface. In the formula, Activated C, a completely stable, fast-acting Vitamin C molecule, helps brighten skin while helping to reduce the appearance of new spots and discolorations.1

      Kiehls is coming to Cork

      Amazing news for Cork and Kiehls lovers! 

      Kiehls is opening its first store in Cork, opening on 18th November 2016 at Debenhams Department Store, Patrick Street, Cork.

      I have been a lover of Kiehls since I worked in Blu Eriu many years ago. 


      Kiehl’s new baby and mother range 

      I’ve loved Kiehl’s since my days working in Blu Eriu, Dublin and this new range is just gorgeous. 

      I get anxious when I see new mums using certain brands on their precious new borns but with Kiehls you can rest assured there are no harmful ingredients and will be super sensitive for your babies skin. 

      I used Kiehls and Burts Bee’s baby range when my daughter was born as I didn’t want to use anything harsh or full of chemicals. 

      Here’s the press release and prices: 

      Tested Under Paediatric & Dermatological Control & Mummy-Approved New York, NY — The joys of parenthood are many, but with that little bundle come countless decisions. From feedings and sleep schedules to tummy time and bath time, each new milestone is exciting but can be truly overwhelming. What new mums and dads crave most (except maybe a good night’s sleep), are recommendations from a reliable source about what is best for their baby, whether from a close friend or a trusted brand.    Kiehl’s caters to the skincare needs of the company’s youngest customers with the Kiehl’s Baby products. By providing formulations made from our finest, safest ingredients, Kiehl’s has been a dependable source of children’s skincare for nearly 25 years. The new Kiehl’s Baby Collection continues to provide parents with our gentlest and most trust-worthy products, giving babies a head start to a lifetime of healthy looking skin.

We specifically test our formulas to validate their gentleness and our new Gentle Foaming Hair & Body Wash, Nurturing Baby Cream for Face & Body and Baby Lip Balm are tested under Pediatric & Dermatological control. 


      The skin is the first protective layer against outside attacks, but it takes 10 years for children’s skin to fully develop and gain the same characteristics as adult skin.[1] This means that an infant must quickly adapt to its new environment after months in its mother’s womb.  

       The Kiehl’s Baby Collection was developed to help maintain the integrity of baby’s skin by providing gentle care. Formulated with a special blend of ingredients, the collection leaves skin feeling nourished and soothed, leaving baby’s delicate skin, lips, and hair feeling soft, smooth and protected.

      Nurturing Oil For Mother & Baby – A Gentle Massage Formulation Enriched with Olive Fruit Oil and Apricot Kernel Oil, with 100% Natural Origin Ingredients. Our mild formulation gently nurtures baby’s delicate skin with moisture and keeps mom’s skin feeling softer and smoother, too.

      Enriched with a moisturizing blend of natural Olive Fruit and Apricot Kernel oils, our replenishing formula helps soothe skin while leaving it comfortable, soft and smooth. Parents will delight in the way our formulation makes their own skin feel “baby soft!” Tested to help minimize allergy risk; sensitivity tested for daily use. RRP: €21.00

      Gentle Foaming Hair & Body Wash — This multi-tasking tear-free wash gently cleanses baby’s delicate skin and hair with a mild, tear-free formula. A light, pleasant scent leaves skin smelling fresh and clean. Tested under Pediatric, Dermatological & Ophthalmological control and safe for sensitive skin. RRP: €19.00

      Nurturing Baby Cream for Face & Body — A special Botanical Oils Blend of Rice Bran Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Olive Fruit Oil and Shea Butter works to leave baby’s skin feeling nourished and ensure its hydrated and protected all day. The Baby Cream deeply hydrates dry feeling skin by delivering 48-hour hydration while also improving the feel of skin softness and smoothness. Gentle enough to use on baby’s face. Tested under Pediatric & Dermatological control and safe for sensitive skin. RRP: €19.50

      Baby Lip Balm – Hydrates and nourishes baby’s lips. The formula contains Shea Butter, a natural moisturizer and helps to leave skin feeling smooth and hydrated. Vitamin E, known for its antioxidant properties, helps soothe and protect dry feeling lips. Tested under Pediatric & Dermatological control and safe for sensitive skin. RRP: €10.00
