In Detail Kiehl’s Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence Review and My Experience

I dislượt thích beauty routines that take more than a couple of minutes, và I had zero expectations as I had bought this on an impulse. But the product pleasantly surprised me. I splash on the slightly-heavier-than-water concentrate after cleansing my skin, twice daily. Sometimes on particularly humid days when moisturizer feels too heavy, I only use this và skip the moisturizer.

It’s a little viscous – slightly, slightly gel-liquid, but only slightly. Because of the mật độ trùng lặp từ khóa of the liquid, it has more mass than liquid, & this explains the weight. Despite its slightly thicker-than-water consistency, it’s still very easily absorbed into the skin leaving no residue. All it takes it a couple of pats & it’s gone. There’s no tingling sensation whatsoever, but the skin does feel refreshed and hydrated.

Despite the alcohol content in the essence, I found it lớn feel quite moisturizing on my skin – I definitely didn’t feel lượt thích it was drying my skin out at all. Also, it absorbs fast, & leaves very minimal residue on the skin. I found that after using this, my skin seemed to be softer & more hydrated. So it does what it says on the bottle.


How I Use it

Apart from applying in onkhổng lồ cleansed skin, I have also been using it in combination with other products, simply because of the non-sticky nature of the Kiehl’s Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence. I realised later that this product does not contain silicones or polymers, making it very easy to lớn layer with other products. It didn’t ball up or coagulate I mixed it with my sunscreen. And also blended very well when I wanted lớn reduce the thichồng và heavy texture of my foundation to wear it in daytime.

After cleansing and toning, I use 3-4 drops of this treatment essence into lớn my palms, spread them together & gently press all over my face và neck. A little goes a long long way & the texture is really smooth và silky. You can pat until it is all absorbed otherwise just let it soak inkhổng lồ the skin then apply your usual serum and moisturiser. At night, I use this mixed with my night cream & it works very well together for a hydrated, supple & soft skin in the morning! Sometimes I use a little bit more – especially on my feet – I just mix a couple of drops of almond oil with the Kiehl’s Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence. I must say my weather-damaged feet are looking much better.

Also once every two weeks, I mix the treatment essence with a bit of unboiled milk onto lớn a thin cốt tông pad (the ones you can separate inlớn few layers.) then put them onto areas of dryness (my cheeks) và let it stay for about ten minutes –a quiông chồng hydrating mask for the skin for better application of foundation. I also mixed it once with a little cucumber juice – again applied the mixture onlớn thin cotton pads and used to relax my eyes after a particularly long day in the sun. The puffiness definitely reduced.


After using the Kiehl’s Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence for about a month now, I notice that my skin is clearer, more even & moisturized, plumper & brighter. Acne scars and sunspots have sầu also reduced by about 50 per cent. The skin texture actually began improving within a week! I hate heavy products and it was such a light feeling to use the Essence because it is non-comedogenic – it does not clog pores. My dull skin is livelier, & dare I say, even glowy. I may be over-reacting, but I seriously feel the sản phẩm does affect the way the other products in your routine take to lớn your skin – they absorb better – which means hóa trang looks natural và not cakey.

Overall I recommover the Kiehl’s Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence for all skin types. If you are lazy lượt thích me, then this is a one hàng hóa that will surely help solve sầu most of your skin woes. The fact that this is a multi-tasker – moisturizer, nourisher AND a treatment for concerns such as spots, blemishes, dull skin etc., makes me love sầu it even more. Try it.
