I’ve been a huge fan of Kiehl’s products for a long time now. Their products are scientifically developed and effective. They work every single time. Entering into the dehydrating colder months in Australia I thought I’d share a couple of Kiehl’s reviews with you over the next month or so of the best Kiehl’s products I’m currently using to ensure my skin stays hydrated and radiant over these upcoming colder months. First up I thought I’d share my favourite Kiehl’s review, my Kiehl’s Glow Formula Skin Hydrator review.

Kiehl’s Glow Formula Skin Hydrator Ingredients

Free from any ingredients that may upset sensitive skin, Glow provides a 95% naturally-derived solution for brighter, smoother skin.

Note: Kiehl’s define their ingredients to be naturally-derived if they retain more than 50% of their molecular structure after they have been processed. 

Kiehl’s Glow Formula Skin Hydrator contains pomegranate extract, essential oils and illuminating minerals that work together to provide a sun-kissed radiant glow to skin.

Pomegranate Extract

Pomegranate is rich in powerful antioxidants that will help defend your skin against free radicals and environmental stressors such as pollution. It has proven skincare benefits in improving skin texture and boosting skin radiance.

Pomegranate also has anti-inflammatory properties.

Illuminating Minerals

Illuminating minerals are used to reflect the light to help improve luminosity and instantly brighten your skin. They are brilliant (pun intended) at reviving tired, dull looking skin and giving you a more refreshed look.

How To Use Kiehl’s Glow Formula Skin Hydrator

Kiehl’s Glow Formula Skin Hydrator is such a versatile product. There are five easy and effective ways to use it.

  1. Apply it on its own as a brightening moisturiser to achieve natural, effortlessly glowy skin. Perfect for casual weekends.
  2. Combine it with your favourite moisturiser for some additional hydration.
  3. Use prior to applying your makeup to enhance your skin’s radiance and to act as a primer, creating a smooth base for your foundation.
  4. Combine it with your regular foundation to achieve a healthy lit from within glow.
  5. Use it as a highlighter for a subtle shimmer on areas where you want a little extra radiance as a final touch over your makeup.

Kiehl’s Glow Formula Skin Hydrator Review

The glow this product creates is a lovely subtle lit from within type of healthy sun kissed radiant glow as opposed to the glow you get when applying liquid makeup illuminators and highlighters.

The formula initially looks like a pearlescent foundation but blends into your skin sheer adding no coverage but creating a lovely radiant sun kissed look, something we probably all need in Winter.

I find it especially helps to revive my skin when I am particularly tired and my skin is looking dull. It instantly brightens up my skin and makes it look more vibrant and youthful.

My skin also feels wonderfully soft and smooth after using this Kiehl’s product.

You thus won’t be surprised to hear that I love this Kiehl’s glow elixir and will be wearing it on high rotation throughout the colder months. It’s definitely one of the best Kiehl’s products I’ve tried and I will happily repurchase this.

Every other Kiehl’s skincare review I’ve read of this product has also been overwhelmingly positive.
