Product Review: It’s a Kiehl’s Mega Party!

♥ Ain’t no party like a Kiehl’s club party! ♥

Kiehl’s. Since 1851. EIGTHTEEN FIFTY ONE. These guys have got looking after your face down to a fine art. So how are they helping the modern gal quash her skincare concerns? Let’s find out…

Kiehl’s Supremely Gentle Eye Makeup Remover – $36

I have a very real fear of getting things in my eye that will burn excessively, but recently I was involved with a project that meant I had to wear a lot of heavy eye makeup 6 nights a week and I knew that I was going to have to do something, nay USE something, to get it off. So I tried Kiehl’s Supremely Gentle Eye Makeup Remover with much hesitation and told those around me that if it hurt I would hurl the bottle out the nearest window with the intensity of a thousand suns.

Of course, my dear logical reader, there was no hurling. The lightweight formula doesn’t smell, doesn’t sting, doesn’t burn, doesn’t HURT. It seems completely free of the things that would lead to causing irritation in the eye or the delicate skin around the eye. Now you might be wondering with all this delicacy and cucumber and apricot kernel oil – does it actually work? You bet your eyes it does. A little on a tissue or cotton ball completely removes the make up from your eyelids and eye lashes. And in my case eyebrows as well (I told you it was HEAVY makeup).

I’m in ur makeup cupboard, testin ur productz.

And for those contact lens wearers – completely safe for you too. You can rest assured knowing its Ophthalmologist tested (see image above). This product easily does the job without causing any discomfort or pain.

Kiehl’s Epidermal Re-Texturizing Micro-Dermabrasion – $84.

This no pain, max results thing seems to be a reoccurring theme with the Kiehl’s crew, because I am in full-blown love with Kiehl’s Epidermal Re-Texturizing Micro-Dermabrasion. It’s a super duper exfoliator that you have complete control over. Squeeze out a small ‘nickel sized’ amount and apply it to your clean, damp skin in circular motions. Wait – if feels too rough! Then just go easier! Wait – I’ve had enough! Then just stop! See? You ARE in control. My skin felt cleaner, clearer, smoother and better without any makeup on it, which for me is always the benchmark of a product doing its job superbly.

I guess I really lost sight of how important exfoliation is after a bad Micro Dermabrasion experience at a salon. But not getting rid of the dead skin cells, product build up and other things that get in the way of good skin can contribute to bad skin no matter how much you cleanse it. I’m sorry I have neglected exfoliating my face for the past couple of years but it is back and boy oh boy it is great.

Kiehls’ Double Strength Wrinkle Filler (Available on Kiehl’s counters)

And finally we have the Kiehls’ Double Strength Wrinkle Filler, espousing to fill those wrinkles and lines you may wish weren’t there. Now, I’m a long way off from what is maybe the desired clientele of this product BUT I’m a smile-y kind of person, and continually creasing my face in the same place in the same way is starting to show.

Did this instantly fill my lines? No. Did it improve the condition of my skin in terms of elasticity and how moisturized and smooth it felt? Absolutely yes. Would I keep using it? Yes again. Because better skin condition of those areas that do get a work out (facially speaking) will surely lead to a reduced appearance of fine lines. And short of invasively having them filled with something from the inside, I think taking care of the outside is a smarter, safer and much more enjoyable bet. Good one Kiehls.

Omnilux in Perth!

Today feels like one of those potentially historical moments in time, when you discover something amazing that could knock you out of your skincare rut and maybe even change your life.

This may sound dramatic, but I have high hopes for my newest finding: Omnilux Therapy!

After reading a great article by the lovely Ms. Zoe Foster of PRIMPED fame (click here), my brain cells have been tingling with anticipation of trying this somewhat miraculous sounding beauty treatment.

There are two types of light treatments available:

Omnilux Revive – “It is a non-surgical light therapy to help combat visible signs of ageing, plumping visible fine lines and wrinkles and maximising the benefits of your skincare.”

Omnilux Blue – “Omnilux Blue led light therapy is a special frequency of light that penetrates the dermis to kill the bacteria that that lie deep in the follicles causing infection and acne. Omnilux treatments allow the skin to heal naturally improving the skin texture and clarity.”


In lay(wo)mans terms, the Omnilux safely recreates specific wavelengths of light which when applied to the skin work a variety of different voodoo magic tricks by regenerating cells and killing bacteria to give you: a) clear, plump, healthy skin with minimal lines and/or b) greatly diminished signs of acne and redness, depending on which type of light you choose to use.

Here’s an example of a girl who has used the acne-specific Omnilux light:

(sorry everyone, the photo seems to have disappeared off the internet for now… I’ll work on getting another one asap!)

That is a very exciting before & after series for anyone who has ever suffered bad skin, which includes myself.

It’s been approved by the FDA as completely safe!

Beauty editors the world over are swearing by it as their new holy grail for a gorgeous complexion!

And my interest has most certainly been piqued.

So while this information is all well and good, what you really want to know is where you can possibly get such space-age sounding, too-good-to-be-true technology in our little town of Perth, yes?

Well as always, I’m here to help!

My favourite place to have an LED light treatment done is at mi:skn, they are also some of the most affordable in Perth!
