Shine with NO SHINE in Kiehl's Fun in The Sun Moment!

Dear readers,


I have a confession to make.
*drama queen alert*

I've never tried any Kiehl's product before. 
And now, I blame hate my self for that. 

Let me explain it to you. Although I'm very easily swayed by makeups , I'm a tad less adventurous in trying new skincare products before. Because my skin tend to react sensitively to certain skincare formulation, I'm not as spontaneous when it comes to buying skincare from brand that I'm not familiar with.

Only when I'm convinced enough on certain brand, then I'll take a chance to try them.
But not everything suit me. Some makes it even worse, some usually is just 'so-so'. 

But once in a blue moon, I would actually find something that suit me so well!

And that is why my friends, I regret that I did not give Kiehl a chance sooner.
Because when I finally tried the samples I got from Kiehl's store, I fell in love!
They're just incredibly awesome!

And I owe The Butterfly Project Malaysia on that.
Because honestly, I only went to get the samples when they suggested it for the June campaign.

And I didn't know that I would actually find a gem!
 No wonder I've been hearing about this brand here and there.
The really live it up to their popularity~~!

Therefore, I'm even more excited to join this campaign with The Butterfly Project!
So it's time to test my luck.

And now, I'm here to present my case;
*clears throat*


The Butterfly Project requested that we need to answer this two questions about Kiehl.
So here is mine ;D

1) Why do you need 24 hour no-shine fresh hydration?

Because as much as refused to admit it, my work hours are usually (very) hectic, and I'm on the verge of turning into a workaholic myself. When I got home, I couldn't care less to put on mask everyday to make my skin extra hydrated the next day because I usually am too exhausted to give extra attention to it. My daily routine is just the three basic "cleansing-toning-moisurizing" steps, which most of us know won't be enough to make our skin look glowing and smooth like all those Korean celebrities.

 I have no life. Seriously.

 Everyday, I'll be under the blasting 'aircond' all day which definitely makes my skin dry, but then once I'm out of the office, the hot Malaysia weather will then instantly make my skin oily. It's like magic you know? *sarcasm*

Having a combination (dry+oily) skin is a major pain because well, not many products can help control both issue without ended up making the other worse.

Most moisturizers that I've tried will either;

a) Over-moisturize and make my skin looked like its been smothered with oil, or 
b) Doesn't moisturize enough at all.

And because of that, I really hate applying moisturizer on my skin because it always felt sticky and heavy on my face.

I guess at that time I haven't found my perfect match yet.

I need a 24 hour no-shine fresh hydration because I believe that with a hydrated skin, the production of sebum that release the facial oil will be able to be controlled, and that will definitely help reducing the oil/shine on my face.

As much as I love makeup, I still think having a bare, fresh looking face is the best way for any girls!

Enough hydration will also mean that my skin won't be badly affected under the 'aircond'. And since the secretion of excessive sebum on my face will be controlled, problems like large pores and blackheads can also be greatly reduced.

Now that will solve another problem right?

And gosh, my greatest desire right now is to get rid all those camera filters and take a selca/selfie with confidence.
Tell me, you all wanted the same to right?

That's why I'm feeling ecstatic with Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream that gives not only 24 hours moisture, but also contain no shine properties.

2) What do you love about Kiehl’s?

Now, the big question. Why do I love Kiehl? Or should I say, why I fell in love with this brand?

A single word wouldn't be enough. That's for sure.



First, I just love their website!
You know first impression last quite awhile and the first time I really got to know Kiehl is through their beautifully designed website. They're just pretty, fun, functional and informative. The interactive menu and easy description is definitely a big yes. Do you know that they actually explain on the ingredients of their product rather than just listing it down? I feel like I'm actually being given a one-on-one explanation while browsing their website.

 And I also like how they show the retail price of the products on their website, where some brands don't always do that.

If I have to choose between an old wise man and a younger wise man, there will be a higher chance that I'll choose the older one. There is a saying that the elders are more wiser because they're well seasoned with experience; and this brand definitely is in the 'old wise man' category. Established in 1851 (Gosh,pretty sure even my great grandad hasn't existed at that time!), Kiehl already have a strong foundation and knowledge in skincare. So why shouldn't I feel confident with them?

If you still feel that's not enough, Kiehl actually have a 100% money back guarantee! That's how much they're confident with their range

And have you ever go to any of Kiehl's outlet? The closest one to me is in KLCC, and I got to say they just catches my eyes every time. They have awesome interior design (which is also a selling point cause ladies will definitely find it even more irresistible to not take a look at a 'pretty' shop). And the shop assistants are also nice and friendly, which is also very important. It'll be such a turn off if the shop assistant is all rude and not welcoming.

Moving on to product design.

I must say that although they have a minimalist design, the Kiehl's products also gives off a clinical yet luxurious look. The 'partly OCD' in me also like that they're somehow similar in design. That will definitely look great on my vanity table. Hahaha.

They have wide range of skincare for different skin issue. The one that is now in my 'to buy list' is definitely the Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream, and also the highly raved #1 Anti Aging Cream in Korea, the Super Multi Corrective Cream . Now I'm just a step away from my flawless skin dream like the Korean actresses
*that's definitely the fan girl in me speaking*

To be honest, that's not all!
I'm actually swayed to buy all of their products, especially the one they listed down in Kiehl's
 Top 10 2013 Customer's Favourites 

The most important thing is how Kiehl's product feel on my skin. I really like them. Lightweight and not greasy. And you could see visible result after using them.
And I just tried the sample! Wonder how it'll be when I finish the entire bottle?
Now, that's something I look forward to.

Hopely, I'll be chosen to join The Butterfly Project, Fun in The Sun with Kiehl event soon.
It's time to get intimate with this awesome brand, cause I can see a long term relationship ahead of us.


Till next post, toodles~! ♥ミ
