I was always a late bloomer. I hit puberty long after my peers. I got acne late in high school. I was what doctors call the clinical definition of a “hot mess”. Between the salicylic acid treatments, shaving nicks and razor bumps, my skin took one decade-long beating. It wasn’t until quite recently that I starting listening to my skin and reversing the signs of torture it endured through my formative years.
It was 2011 and a friend had recommended I try some products from Kiehl’s, a brand I hadn’t yet shopped. Within the first week, I was hooked. My first purchase was the Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash recommended by one of the Kiehl’s Customer Representatives. From the first use, I was hooked on the Facial Fuel face wash. It left my skin feeling so incredibly soft and quenched – which I needed after years of depriving my skin of proper care. After a few months, I added the Facial Fuel Moisture Treatment and Amino Acid Shampoo to my arsenal until just about every product in my medicine cabinet had been replaced by its Kiehl’s counterpart.
It’s been over three years since my skin-conscious friend introduced me to Kiehl’s. I couldn’t be more thrilled with how supple and handsomely rugged my skin has become. From the amazing ‘Close-Shavers Squadron’ Shave Cream (which feels like soft butter on your face!) to the Facial Fuel set, my morning routine wouldn’t be complete without Kiehl’s.
