Review: Kiehl’s Skincare products for Oily & Sensitive skin!

I’ve always had sensitive acne prone skin for the longest time that I can remember. I thought that going to a dermatologist and getting a chemical peel was the only solution –  Enter, Kiehl’s skincare range of products for Oily and Sensitive Skin.

I was introduced to Kiehl’s products 2 years ago and I’ve never looked back. I was looking for a new skincare routine and I knew exactly where to go. The skin expert at Kiehl’s was very helpful, she first tested my skin before she recommended the right treatment. The result – My skin is very oily (I always thought I had combination skin!!)

This is the skincare routine she recommended and I absolutely love how my skin feels!

·         Cleanse – We all know the mantra – Cleanse, Tone and Moisturise. I never really paid attention to my skin and since I’m really lazy its always put off for tomorrow. Little did I realise what my laziness to adhere to a skincare regime was doing to my skin. CTM is the best treatment you can give your face, it not only removes excess oil and dirt completely, but also helps reduce tanning and pigmentation which in turn helps reduce the signs of ageing, leaving you with lesser breakouts and clearer looking skin, according to Darshana, the skincare specialist at Kiehl’s store, Inorbit, Mumbai. Since I’ve got extremely oily skin, she recommended I cleanse my skin with The Blue Herbal gel Cleanser. This cleanser contains Salicylic Acid to help keep skin clear of acne blemishes. It thoroughly cleans pores and removes traces of dirt, residue and oil, which can lead to acne break-outs.

·         Tone – I was pleasantly surprised with this one. The Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner gently cleanses and soothes normal to oily skin tones. What’s even better? It doesn’t contain alcohol or harsh synthetic agents that dry your skin and strip it of its natural moisture. As soon as I applied this, my face felt so refreshed and it didn’t feel stretchy or dry. The Calendula Herbal Extract toner, comes with actual Calendula flowers that are added by someone for that extra Kiehl’s personal love and care for your skin.

·         Moisturise – I am one of those people who keep picking at their face as soon as a zit surfaces. As a result of my hands never ceasing to come in contact with my face, I now have large pores and zit marks that are very visible. The skincare expert at Kiehl’s suggested I use a light moisturising serum that would not only moisturise my face but would also correct the damage I’ve done, by reducing dark spots and giving me an even skin tone. The star of this routine is the Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution. This solution comes in an easy to use dropper which also helps make the product last longer, it helps to prevent the formation of future dark spots and other skin discolorations with continued daily usage. It is silicone-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free and does not contain colorants and optical diffusers. It contains an anti-cluster technology that breaks apart discolouration’s and prevents formations of new pigment clusters and potent complex of activated C (Vitamin C) that limits excessive melanin. The skin expert recommended that I use this first before I apply sun screen and then gradually move to layering it with the Clearly Corrective™ Hydrating Moisture Emulsion.






·         Sunscreen – I’m always afraid of sunscreen since I have extremely oily skin. I’ve always been in a dilemma while buying a sun screen. Sometimes you just don’t want to end up spending so much money only to find out that the sunscreen makes your face even oiler and gives rise to breakouts as soon as you step out into the sun. I thought I would never ever get out of this dilemma until I was introduced to Kiehl’s BB Cream – Actively Correcting and Beautifying with SPF 50 PA+++. All you have to do is just use one pea sized drop, and spread it evenly onto your skin. The BB cream is so light and non-greasy, and it gave my skin an instant glow!! What’s also great about this cream is that it is Paraben Free, Fragrance Free, Silicone Free and  Mineral Oil Free. It also delivers broad spectrum SPF 50 PA +++ UV protection and this formula also helps to fight future sun damage. What more could a girl ask for??





Never have I ever had the satisfaction that I’ve bought the right skincare products for my type of Oily skin until now. It is best to start on your skin care routine while in your  twenties and that’s exactly what I’ve decided to do. I was very pleased at the kind of skincare advice I was offered and would recommend you go out today and get your Kiehl’s skincare advice and invest in great product that works!


Now go out there and take care of your skin Chicas!
