In this series, I thought that I’d recommend a number of Kiehl’s skincare products that I’ve tried and tested over the past year, forming a daily routine and which have inevitably returned some wonderful, healthy looking skin results. Today is Part Three which features Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Toner… If you’d like to see Part Two then click here. Let’s get cracking and tell you how my day goes, step 3 of my routine, the after shower tone.
Ultra Facial Toner Usage
After the shower, I prep my face with a toner. The same product line, I use the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Toner. This is an effective toner for all skin types and considering my skin is pretty normal (not too dry or oily from my skin test at Kiehl’s) it works just fine. I helped to keep that skin looking and feeling healthy and is the perfect preparation for your next product. What I like is that it gently removes all surface debris and hydrates your skin, something I consider to be a high priority in skin care.
As with the previous step, this product is stated on the website as a customer favourite and is recommended for people with normal to dry skin. When I popped into Kiehl’s, they tested my skin and recommended this Toner as I had slightly dryer patches. However (through usage) I have found it to work well but the overall feel again isn’t quite what I’d like. I’d ideally prefer this product to be a bit more hydrating and liquidy, but instead, it goes dry rather fast.
As this product is a continuation from the previous step, the three main ingredients are exactly the same. In the Ultra Facial Toner, we have: Apricot Kernel Oil which is very high in Vitamin E, which aids fast absorption. This ingredient is found to be highly compatible with the skin and the oil moisturises and softens the skin whilst also helping to retain clarity and suppleness. Secondly, we have Avocado Oil which known to be the most moisturising of any fruit oil. It’s a natural source of Amino Acid proteins, Vitamins A, D, E and Potassium. This ingredient helps to restore the natural moisture of your skin. Finally, we have Squalane which is a signature Kiehl’s ingredient that helps restore the skin’s natural moisture balance, again helping to keep it extra soft and supple.
Overall I really enjoy using the Ultra Facial Toner in my daily routine, as I can truly see and feel the results. I know there are little bits of the product that aren’t what I like but it’s definitely showing good results for me. Kiehl’s is definitely in my male grooming arsenal and shall not be going anywhere anytime soon. If you’re feeling a fresh change in your skincare routine, why not drop into your local Kiehl’s store and give it a try? I always find they’re super friendly and truly care about your skin! Remember, though this routine is only half the battle, you have to have a well-balanced diet and always drink plenty of water.
