Kiehl’s invited me to take part in their #ChangeYourSkin campaign, and I was lucky enough to choose 3 Pink Peonies blog readers to join me. The aim of this campaign is to put 3 Kiehl’s skin care products to the ultimate test for 28 days. Our Kiehl’s parcels were delivered straight to our doorsteps last week & we started with the challenge yesterday. I’ll be doing weekly updates here on the blog for the duration of our 4-week journey. Be sure to check in on these blog posts, because I have Kiehl’s hampers to give away to my loyal readers. I might be sneaky about it, and not mention the giveaway in the title of the blog post…we shall see. But without further ado…
Meet the #FABFour:
Lee-Anne Geldenhuys | Age: 27
“I recently started noticing pigmentation on the right side of my face, in my hair line – thanks to hours spent in the car no doubt! I instantly panicked, and have been smothering myself in SPF50, hats, scarves and oversized sunnies ever since, in an attempt to escape the sun. I’ve been on the lookout for the right product to treat that.
Another skin change I’ve noticed as I’ve gotten older is the network of very fine lines around my eyes – again, panic set in, but a quick trip to a dermatologist confirmed that my skin is actually dehydrated. The relief! So that is now something that I’m actively targeting, and I would be interested to see what effect the Hydro-Plumping Retexturising Serum Concentrate would have on that. I’m 27, so at the point where I’m starting to pay for the sins of my youth.”
Simone Cameron | Age: 34
“I am having these hormonal breakouts that are causing the worst spots and leaving marks behind. I’m so self conscious about it….so would love to try something if it could possibly work for that. I’d definitely say I’ve got blemish prone skin.
I don’t feel comfortable going out unless I have make up on every day. Would be nice not to feel embarrassed on the days I don’t have time to put on a face full of make up.”
Cicilia Kaufmann | Age: 50
“I am a young 50 year old lady going through menopause!!! So my skin went from oily to dehydrated in a flash and I have started with pigmentation around my mouth area and under my eyes.”
Luzanne Ashby | Age: 32
“I have combination skin that tends to be dehydrated around the cheek and forehead areas. I also struggle with hormonal breakouts that leave stubborn acne scars behind (they sometimes last for up to a month). I also have hyperpigmentation marks on the upper cheek area (especially on the right cheek), I have a sneaky suspicion it’s due to spending a lot of time in the car (driver’s seat) a few years ago.
Winter is here and my skin is also getting more dry and dehydrated by the day, so a good facial oil is definitely welcome in my skin care routine.”
We will be testing the following products this month:
♥ Dermatologist Solutions Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution – A fast, exceptionally effective formulation developed to promote youthful clarity while addressing the appearance of dark spots, discolorations and hyperpigmentation. We use this in the morning and evening.
♥ Dermatologist Solutions Hydro-Plumping Retexturising Serum Concentrate – This breakthrough, innovative formula is clinically demonstrated to help correct the signs of age-related dehydration by ‘flooding’ the deepest surface layers of dehydrated skin to restore vital moisture. The result is skin that appears more fresh, plump and youthful. We use this in the morning and evening.
♥ Midnight Recovery Concentrate – A powerful concentration, it was specifically formulated to biologically replicate skin’s natural lipids for optimal skin repair during the night. This potent elixir is 99% naturally-derived and paraben-free. During the day skin’s function is to protect itself against internal and external aggressors. At night it needs to regenerate, repair and replenish what is has lost as a result of daily stresses. Kiehl’s chemists developed a powerhouse blend of active botanical and essential oils that work all night to replenish lipids for a fresher and more radiant appearance by morning. We use this only in the evening.
I am holding thumbs all 4 of us will experience positive changes during the next 4 weeks.
