If you are researching some new skin care to add to your routine in the run up to your wedding, look no further. Kiehl’s may just have you covered.
The first signs of aging are your skin beginning to look a little rough, the addition of some fine lines and your youthful glow dissipating. Kiehl’s new Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence is a multi-action formula that aims to combat all of those initial signs of aging. It features Iris Florentina Root Extract which is an advanced liquid concentrate thought to deeply penetrate skin to boost radiance, reduce fine lines and improve dullness. This product is best used as the first step after cleansing because as well as providing a good base for skin, it also helps products placed on top to penetrate the skin deeper.
A survey conducted found that after only one week, 94% of women saw smoother skin and in less than two weeks, 91% saw a reduction in dullness.
And now for the science bit..
It renews the skin with Lipo Hydroxy Acid (LHA) – a derivative of salicylic acid – which helps to remove dead cells. It is gentle and precise, different from other acids that produce harsh exfoliation.
It also renourishes the skin with the Iris Florentina Root Extract which improves the skin’s barrier function to lock-in moisture for up to twenty four hours after application.
It then replenishes the skin with Sodium Hyaluronate which has the ability to hold one thousand times its weight in water. This helps to smooth fine lines.
Most people will tell you that the key to good makeup is a good base so if you want to glow on your Big Day, I can’t think of a better place to start. It may promise to be fast acting but I don’t think it is ever too early to start prepping your skin.
Kiehl’s is available at 35 Wicklow Street; Dundrum Town Centre and Arnotts Department Store.
Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence will be available from July, with a recommended retail price of €40.00
