Today I am so glad to be giving you a beauty review, well technically it’s two beauty reviews because I am going to be chatting about the Kiehl’s Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream and the Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector. I like to try a product for at least 1 month before talking about it, & these in particular I have been using over the past 2 months. I have used them when I was in all parts of SA, & even when I was travelling abroad, so I have used them in different climates as well. I find that even using a product in Durban vs. Johannesburg helps me be sure of a product.
I hope you guys enjoy this 🙂
Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector
Primers are not something I often use, but I do like to try them from time to time. And sometimes I find one that enjoy. Remember me raving about the Maybelline Baby Skin? Exactly.
The job of a primer is to make your foundation glide on smoothly; last longer; and smooth/hide your pores. I tried the Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector & I quite enjoy this primer. While most primers on the market are silicon-based or have a high silicon content, but the Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector is water-based, but does contain silicon. I think that because it has a lower silicon content than most primers it makes it lightweight, while still getting the job done. While I don’t use this primer (or any primer for that matter) daily, when I do use it I find that my foundation does last longer & looks more flawless. I will be honest that I have only used this primer in conjunction with the Kiehl’s Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream which I am going to review below.
Overall, I think this is a lovely product to use. And I love the way it makes my skin look when I do use it. Kiehl’s is a brand that I love. I use products from their skincare range & I swear by their Midnight Recovery Concentrate, so I am not surprised that I love this product too. I would say it’s in my Top 3 Primers next to the Maybelline Baby Skin & the Benefit Pore-fessional.
Kiehl’s Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream
I love me some BB Cream, you know that. So, do I love the Kiehl’s Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream? Well YES I do! And as far as I am concerned this is the star of the show. This Kiehl’s BB Cream contains Vitamin C & has a super high SPF 50 protection (SPF is very important to all of us – don’t forget it).
My experience using this BB Cream has been amazing. I feel like my skin glows without looking oily. It gives enough coverage without feeling or looking cakey. My skin can breathe, & I love it. For the record, it comes in 3 shades (Light / Medium / Dark) & I use the shade MEDIUM.
Coverage: Light but build-able to Medium, depending on how much you put on. I found that with the Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector underneath I had a little more coverage. But even without it, I find that my pores were a little less visible.
Application: I use a Beauty Blender or Real Techniques sponge to apply it. It blends well into the skin.
Price: R525 which is not cheap, but it is a great product, & is developed by skincare experts so it is expected.
Overall I rate this as my current favourite BB cream. No competition. You should try it!
