Kiehl’s arrives in Debenhams Cork

Kiehl’s has always been a brand that has intrigued me but until recently I didn’t actually know all that much about it simply because we never had a Kiehl’s counter in Cork until one opened in Debenhams Patrick Street earlier this year.

I decided that in order to get the proper low down on the brand I would contact the counter directly and see if somebody would be willing to walk me through the brand and what their products can offer. Enter Barbara the Counter Manager of Kiehl’s in Debenhams, Patrick Street. Honestly a nicer girl you couldn’t meet. She very kindly sat down with me and explained the ethos of Kiehl’s and even did a skin consultation on me to see what Kiehl’s products would suit me best.

My skin test re-affirmed my combination skin status

She was very honest at all times and it really just made me fall in love with the brand, they don’t ever promise to be a miracle in a jar, their products will enhance your skin to help make it be the best that it can be. With a blend of natural ingredients and science innovation I feel that Kiehl’s as a brand is definitely the best of both worlds.

So a few weeks after my initial consultation I decided to make my very first Kiehl’s purchase. I chose the Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil , the most recent addition to the Kiehl’s family and a accompaniment for Kiehl’s most popular product, Midnight Recovery Concentrate. I have been using the cleansing oil now for about a month and I have to say I adore it.

I’ve gotten very much into the double cleansing phenomenon right now and this oil is always one part of this process. I know some might be put off by the idea of using an oil to cleanse their face, especially those on the oilier side, but it’s such a lightweight oil that changes to a milk as soon as you mix it with water so for me personally it was never an issue.

It’s non-comedogenic too so no worries about it clogging up pores and I have even found it agreeable using it around my eye area, which for me is unusual. On top of feeling like a wonderfully luxurious product on the skin it also smells divine, it’s like having a spa day in your own bathroom with the mixture of Squalane, Evening Primrose Oil and Lavender Essential Oil.

I have to say that this oil has happily lived up to every single expectation I had and I can truly say I can’t wait to buy my next Kiehl’s product which I’m almost sure will be the Midnight Recovery Concentrate as I can only imagine how amazing a combination these two will make.

So if you’re in the market for new skincare be sure to pop into the lovely Kiehl’s ladies in Debenhams Patrick Street and tell them I sent you!!

Update…. I bought the Midnight Recovery Concentrate yesterday, I knew I would!!
