When Tori from Kiss, Blush, and Tell emailed me to ask whether I was interested in joining her, as well as some other bloggers and readers, in the Kiehl’s 28-day #changeyourskin challenge, I was definitely interested. I was curious to try a new brand, see what it did for me, and see what others say. The idea was to use the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate every night for 28 days, and it promised results.
Now, let me begin by saying I have good skin. Not to be arrogant, but there was only so much improvement that could happen.
I then decided to also rope SC in on this challenge. When we met, he was washing his face with soap. I’ve guided him onto the path of good skin care, and figured this could be part of his education. The challenge started last week, so it’s been ten days so far. Here’s our feedback so far:
My skin didn’t have any problems as such to sort out, so I can’t report on that. But man oh man, I have to say, my skin is looking fantastic! Just a week in and I can see a definite improvement. My skin is silky smooth and really dewy. It actually glows, and I definitely don’t need foundation even thought it’s winter. A bit of blush and mascara with my healthy-looking skin means I look fresh, natural, and definitely not like we’re in the middle of winter! I’m well impressed.
I love the texture and smell of the MRC, and it applies smoothly and despite being an oil it doesn’t feel thick and oily and gross on my skin. I love that it’s all natural, and if these are the results after just over a week, I’m excited to keep using it!
SC’s skin is sensitized- a result of years of inadequate skin care and a few bad (really bad) sunburns as a kid. He has a reverse combination skin, and often in the mornings his skin is tight and irritated. By the afternoon his t-zone is dry and flaky. The MRC has definitely helped improve his skin hugely! The irritation and redness is no longer there in the morning, and it doesn’t feel tight. It also seems to have helped balance the moisture levels, as his t-zone has stayed moisturized through the day. His skin also looks brighter and healthier, and he has said that he will definitely keep buying this product in future.
So those are the results so far! Anyone else tried Kiehl’s MRC? What are your thoughts?
