In Detail Kiehl’s Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence Reviews và My Experience

I dislike beauty routines that take more than a couple of minutes, and 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 and 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, và this explains the weight. Despite its slightly thicker-than-water consistency, it’s still very easily absorbed inkhổng lồ the skin leaving no residue. All it takes it a couple of pats và it’s gone. There’s no tingling sensation whatsoever, but the skin does feel refreshed và hydrated.

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


How I Use it

Apart from applying in onto cleansed skin, I have sầu 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 sản phẩm does not contain silicones or polymers, making it very easy 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 to reduce the thick & heavy texture of my foundation to wear it in daytime.

After cleansing & toning, I use 3-4 drops of this treatment essence inkhổng lồ my palms, spread them together & gently press all over my face & neck. A little goes a long long way and the texture is really smooth and silky. You can pat until it is all absorbed otherwise just let it soak into lớn the skin then apply your usual serum và moisturiser. At night, I use this mixed with my night cream and it works very well together for a hydrated, supple and soft skin in the morning! Sometimes I use a little bit more – especially on my feet – I just set 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 phối the treatment essence with a bit of unboiled milk onlớn a thin cotton pad (the ones you can separate inkhổng lồ few layers.) then put them onto areas of dryness (my cheeks) & 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 onto thin cốt tông pads và used to lớn 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 and brighter. Acne scars & 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, và 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 your skin – they absorb better – which means Cosplay looks natural và not cakey.

Overall I recommend the Kiehl’s Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence for all skin types. If you are lazy like me, then this is a one product that will surely help solve 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. You will not be disappointed at all!
