Review – Kiehl’s Pioneer Products #PioneersByNature + GIVEAWAY

Kiehls Pioneers By Nature

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, a pioneer is someone who is the first to apply a new method, area of knowledge or activity.  To me, the definition of a pioneer is similar to that of an innovator – a person who is one of the first to introduce into reality something better than before.  Something that opens up a new area for others to achieve.

Since opening its doors in 1851, Kiehl’s has pioneered numerous important moments throughout its 164 year old history.  In honor of this legacy, Kiehl’s proudly presents Pioneers by Nature – a program honoring game changers and trendsetters who are pioneering new ways of viewing and experiencing the world today.  Kiehl’s teamed up with a couple of local beauty bloggers, and both local and international pioneers to bring their pioneering stories to life.

Local pioneers include: Craig Jacobs (a fashion entrepreneur and journalist), Jackie Burger (a well known South African style icon and trendsetter), Elvis Blue (the winner of M-Net’s SA Idols who unselfishly shared half his winnings with the runner-up) and Prof Mamokgethi Pakheng (the first black African woman in South Africa to obtain a PhD in Mathematics Education).

International pioneers include: Solange Knowles (a celebrated singer, recording artist and founder of her own record label), Phillip Lim (a unique fashion designer who bridged the gap between high-end luxury and fast fashion), Rachel Zoe (a distinguished designer, stylist, editor, and founder of The Zoe Report), Dustin Yellin (New York City artist and founder of a one-of-a-kind, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the creation, synthesis, and discussion of art, science, and education), Reshma Saujani (founder of Girls Who Code with the goal of closing the gender gap in tech by educating and equipping young women of all backgrounds to pursue careers in computer science) and Robert Hammond (founder of an organisation that transformed an old freight rail line into a public park that is now enjoyed by more than 6 million annual visitors).

In partnership with these influencers, Kiehl’s will be making a an international donation of $150,000 to support organisations that serve children and the environment.  In South Africa, Kiehl’s aims to donate 15,000 meals to ‘Stop Hunger Now Southern Africa’, a non-profit organisation that focuses on the nutritional needs of children in early childhood development phase (below the age of 5) in disadvantaged areas.

I did a bit of research and found a quite a number of moments in Kiehl’s pioneering history, below I list the ones that really stood out to me.

1920’s: Kiehl’s founding family member, Irving Morse, valued the personal relationships he had with his customers and encouraged them to experiment with the remedies before choosing those that would best suit their needs.  ‘Try before you buy’ became the pharmacy’s motto, and the principle of personalised customer service plus sampling has remained a Kiehl’s practice for over 90 years.

1920’s: Kiehl’s was among the first beauty companies to proudly list ingredients on its product labels, even before the US government mandated it, to help customers make more informed and confident purchasing decisions.

1990’s: Giving has always been central to the Kiehl’s mission, long before corporate giving became ‘thing’. Beginning in the 1990s, Kiehl’s offered several formulas dedicated to raising funds for research and prevention of HIV/AIDS.

2005: Kiehl’s created one of the first stabilised 10.5% Vitamin C serums, featuring highly potent levels of Vitamin C, while ensuring complete tolerance on the skin.

2009: Kiehl’s created Midnight Recovery Concentrate, a pioneering product in the facial oil category well before the recent facial oil trend explosion.

2015: This year marks a milestone in the company’s pioneering heritage as Kiehl’s celebrates the 10th anniversary of Dermatologist Solutions and the collection’s 1st serum Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate.  This formula set the stage for Kiehl’s subsequent pioneering serums that followed, including Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution and Hydro-Plumping Retexturing Serum Concentrate.

There are certain Kiehl’s products that have quite the cult following, these are their pioneering products.  I wanted to see what all the fuss was about, so I started testing 5 of their most-loved products last month.  I’m already very familiar with 2 of the products, that means 3 products were completely new to me.

Stick around, because there might just be a little giveaway waiting at the end of this blog post.

Here are my short reviews of 5 Kiehl’s favourites amongst beauty lovers all over the world.

Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate

Midnight Recovery Concentrate (R 700,00) – Affectionately referred to as ‘Midnight Magic’ by Kiehl’s customers, the formula contains a potent concentration of botanical extracts specifically formulated to biologically replicate skin’s natural lipids for optimal skin repair throughout the night.  This lightweight facial oil regenerates, repairs and replenishes skin for a smoother, healthier tone.  It is 99.8% naturally-derived, and free of parabens, fragrances & mineral oil.  I just checked and I’ve featured this facial oil in 7 blog posts already – all rave reviews.  Whenever I mention the Kiehl’s MRC on my social media platforms, I always receive tweets and comments from readers saying how much they love this product.  With over 1 million bottles sold and 46 beauty awards, it rather obvious why this overnight treatment remains a leading beauty product in the industry.

Kiehls Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate

Dermatologist Solutions Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate (R 745,00) – Formulated with a 10.5% pure Vitamin C this pre-moisturiser serum is clinically demonstrated to improve overall skin texture, tone and radiance while reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.  It gives your skin a triple boost by stimulating collagen production, providing anti-oxidant protection and exfoliating skin to reveal healthier-looking skin.  Vitamin C is also great for lightening age spots and acne scars on the surface of the skin and I have noticed a remarkable difference in the speed of the healing process of my blemishes.  This oil-free serum packs such a high amount of pure vitamin C that the formula actually warms as it melts into the skin.  The result?  Smooth, supple and glowing skin.  It’s a winner!

Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream

Ultra Facial Cream (R 355,00) – We all know the key to beautiful skin is moisture.  This light textured daily hydrator leaves the skin feeling comfortable and visibly well balanced.  The unique combination of natural emolients (squalane) help ease dry patches, and reduce moisture loss while drawing & absorbing moisture from the air.  With continuous moisture replenishment throughout the day skin is smooth and healthy-looking.  Squalane is great for acne-prone or oily skin (because it is a bit more lightweight than squalene).  I’ve said this countless times already: When your skin is dehydrated, your oil glands go in overdrive and produce extra sebum (oil).  Keeping your skin hydrated will keep your oil glands from overcompensating.  This face cream is suitable for all skin types, it absorbs instantly and provides a hydrated base for foundation.

Kiehls Lip Balm Mint

Lip Balm #1 Mint (R 89,00) – This is one of those products that is a cult favourite around the world, in fact, it’s a Kiehl’s classic and their #1 bestseller!  Formulated with soothing squalane, lanolin- and sweet almond oil, as well as vitamins A and E, this lip balm packs a serious moisturising punch.  The balm is colourless, light, and smells deliciously minty.  It softens skin and repairs cracked lips and helps to neutralise skin-damaging free radicals.  It feels soothing on the lips and the peppermint oil has a lovely cooling effect (not tingly at all).  It also softens the skin, leaving your lips ready for any lip product (and kisses).  I have even used it as a moisturiser for my dry cuticles and any other dry spots as a quick fix.

Fun Fact: The Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 was one of six essential beauty items Lupita Nyong’o was carrying in her clutch at the Oscars this year.

Kiehls Creme De Corps

Crème de Corps Soy & Honey Whipped Body Butter (R 685,00) – Doesn’t that sound delicious!?  This is a luxuriously whipped, luxuriously scented body butter that feels surprisingly light on skin.  In addition to key hydrators like shea butter and jojoba oil, it also contains moisture barrier-restoring squalane.  It works to banish dry, itchy skin and provide 24-hour hydration.  The semi-sweet rich scent quickly disappears after a few minutes, which means you can follow up with your favourite fragrance without having to worry about competing scents.   It feels light and airy and when you scoop a bit of product out, it almost feels like you are touching whipped cream.  The featherlight texture ensures instant absorption to restore, protect and soften skin and contains no parabens, no glycols and no silicones.  A little goes a long way, so this tub will last you for well over 6 months.  It leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and wonderfully moisturised.  I also apply this to my heels and feet before I hop into bed, and I know I won’t have to worry about dry, chapped heels ever again!  Those are just a few of the reasons why it has earned its place on so many ‘Best of Beauty’ lists year after year.

I’ll be back next week with more info on the Kiehl’s Pioneers By Nature project and will be sharing two Q&As – one from a local pioneer & one from an international pioneer.  Can you guess who I decided to feature on the blog?

Kiehls Pioneers By Nature Giveaway

One thing is for sure, Kiehl’s is a great brand with no frills, no fuss high quality skincare products.  It’s only fair that I share these amazing pioneering products with one of my blog readers, so I have organised one Kiehl’s #PioneersByNature hamper containing 1 x Midnight Recovery Concentrate, 1 x Ultra Facial Cream, 1 x Lip Balm #1 (mint flavour) & 1 x Crème de Corps Soy & Honey Whipped Body Butter.  The hamper is worth over R 1800,00!  As you can see the Dermatologist Solutions Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate is not included in this giveaway prize, it will be included in another upcoming Kiehl’s #PioneersByNature giveaway during the next few weeks.

Here’s how you can enter to win yourself a #PioneersByNature hamper (but remember to enter through the Rafflecopter widget, otherwise your entries won’t be valid):

    The Dermatologist Solutions Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate sounds like something I am in desperate need of!
    I’m suffering with stressed induced breakouts at the moment and they are just not healing fast enough for my liking. This is right up my alley!

  3. 21 September 2015 / 08:17

    That lipbalm sounds perfect for me! I suffer from extremely chapped and cracked lips. I have literally tried everything (well, except the Kiehl’s balm) – it works for awhile and then stops – so this looks like something to try. I really wish Kiehl’s was more affordable, but I understand it’s definitely an investment!

    21 September 2015 / 08:44

    I absolutely love Kiehls, I recently discovered the brand but the Midnight Recovery Concentrate which is my first love and also the hydro-plumping re-texturizing serum concentrate have become a must in my day to day skin care regime, I would love to try some of their other products that you reviewed as I have not tried them. The ultra facial cream sounds great because I struggle with dehydrated skin but if I am not careful it can also become oily.

    I am THE BIGGEST Kiehls fan you will ever find…although I have not tried a whole lot of their products. The Dermatologist Solutions Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate sounds like something that has been missing from my life!! I would love to have a more even skin tone and the fact that it lightens age spots and acne scars, sounds like a dream come true! Its difficult for me to choose as the Ultra Facial Cream also sounds like s a product that could combat the few dry patches I have on my skin. Holding the tightest thumbs to win this hamper, would be the best thing ever!!!

    I think the Crème de Corps Soy & Honey Whipped Body Butter was made for me , ive always wanted to be that girl that when she walks past you… you can smell her beautiful fragrance or her body mist, or the products that she uses on her skin, I want to leave a memory with people, when they smell that product again I would like them to be reminded of me , because I am reminded of so many things just from a smell 🙂 I received a sample of this many years ago in a rubybox and I loved putting it on my skin, it was so nourishing and smelt like angels 🙂 and when it finished I was so sad as I cant afford to buy a new one 🙁 winning this would be amazing!

    I was so heartbroken recently when I didn’t close my Midnight Recovery concentrate properly and it leaked aaaaalll over my overnight bag. The horror! I haven’t tried the other Pioneer Products yet, but I’m sure they’re just as amazing as my dearly departed MRC. 🙁

  63. Leigh
    21 September 2015 / 13:12

    Definitely the Midnight Recovery Concentrate! Been dying to try it since your first review of it! Red marks and discolouration from breakouts have been the bane of my existence in my 20s! :/

  64. Kelly

    21 September 2015 / 13:30

    I have coveted the Midnight Recovery Oil ever since I first read about it in your blog. My skin is undergoing some really weird changes at the moment, I guess moving from 20’s towards 30’s I expected a change. I feel like if I could just remove my skin and start fresh I’d be happier but even better would be to have a miracle oil to put back whats lacking and restore my skin back to health. At the moment though, with the season changes again, my lips are so dry and cracked all the time. I find myself smearing butter think layers of balm on at bedtime just to sleep comfortably so I think the Kiehls Lip Balm is also a must -have for me at the moment.

    Ultra Facial Cream – my skin needs this 🙂

  67. Shantel Govender
    21 September 2015 / 13:41

    Ultra Facial Cream (R 355,00) as my face is always dry and falky during winter and early spring . This product is made for my skin as a hydrator . I can even imagine my skin being hydrated and looking fresh .

  68. Janet
    21 September 2015 / 13:55

    The Lip Balm sounds like it was meant for me! My lips are so neglected, by the time I realise they are in dire need of some TLC, they are already cracked and sore, so I’d love to try this little gem from an amazing brand.

  69. Lize Hartley
    21 September 2015 / 14:02

    For me it’s the Dermatologist Solutions Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate. Pigmentation and uneven skin tone are some of my main concerns when it comes to skincare, and the added benefits on top of this serum’s primary qualities means it’s a must in my skincare routine! I’m already a die-hard Midnight Magic fan!

    I have dry and super sensitive skin, finding the right products for my skin has always been a mission. Recently a beaty therapist recommended the facial oils for me, I think the Midnight Recovery Concentrate will be the perfect match for my skin.. especially that it contains botanical extracts and is 99.8% naturally-derived, and free of parabens, fragrances & mineral oil.

  71. momo
    21 September 2015 / 14:16

    the Midnight recovery oil was definitely made for me. My skin definitely needs some TLC. My skin seems to be going through an awkward phase where nothing seems to work and after seeing your reviews on this product i definitely want to give it a shot

  72. Simone Cameron
    21 September 2015 / 14:54

    I’d love to try the ultra facial cream!

    I’ve learnt so much since following your blog…. the thing about dehydrated skin is true. I always battled with oily shiny skin and now that I take better care of my skin…using oils i don’t have the excess oil anymore.such an epiphany!

  73. 21 September 2015 / 14:58

    The Midnight Recovery Concentrate is definitely made for me. I am in dire need of a serum that will help repair my skin from all the acne scars that I have. The Midnight Recovery Concentrate really gives meaning to the term ‘beauty sleep’ because it rejuvenates and repairs your skin while you sleep, who wouldn’t want that?!

    My skin is extremely sensitive at the moment and the fact that it is 99.8% naturally-derived as well as being free of parabens just enforces the fact that this beauty is made for me.

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway and opportunity to enter!

    Kiehls Creme de Corps soy milk and honey whipped body butter sounds simply devine!

  117. 22 September 2015 / 13:51

    Since I’m about to turn 25 years old, I think it’s time I start taking proper care of my skin and possibly incorporate some high-end products to my drugstore facial routine to combat my mid-twenties mild acne problem. I’ve actually never tried Kiehl’s, as it’s a bit (far) out of my budget. I would love to be spoilt for my birthday with this! I would also share my products with my mom and see if it works for her skin issues, i.e. fine lines, age spots. I would love the Kiehl’s MRC, but I would love to pass the Line reducing Concentrate onto my mom. What a great giveaway PinkPeonies!

    The Crème de Corps Soy & Honey Whipped Body Butter was 100%, totally, absolutely & undeniably made just for me! I The scent, texture and aesthetics of this body butter look right up my alley!! I have had such an issue with using body butters that are oily and too thick, by the looks of this review, it looks like this body butter is the gem that I have been longing for! After this dry winter, my legs are crying for a nourishing re-boost just in time for summer!

    I love the fact that this tub will last me half a year, such a nice pro for the wallet as I spend so much money on cosmetics that don’t give me the results they promise. I would kill to use this gorgeous cream as a morning and night skin re-juvenator. It feels as though I can feel the quality of this product through the gorgeous image on site and insightful review, would love to get my hands on this product. ALSO – I love soy milk, so big pro on the ingredients for me!

    My beautician scratched my face really badly when she threaded my face and the first thing I applied on it was The Midnight Recovery Concentrate. It provided soothing comfort immediately and the scarring has reduced considerably. So happy to have found this miracle serum.

  145. 25 September 2015 / 19:34

    I would say that the Midnight Recovery Concentrate truly appeals to me. and I would appreciate this win.

  146. 25 September 2015 / 23:13

    I definitely feel as if the ‘midnight magic’ was made just for me ! I have dark under eye circles and feel as if this product will be extremely helpful. Suffering with some terrible spots recently just add to a skin dilemma! Also the lip balm is exactly what I need right now after a terrible winter ! My lips are so dry , extremely sensitive and are in need of some Kiehls love ! (Love you and the blog )

  147. 25 September 2015 / 23:44

    Thank you again Luzanne for such an awesome post. Your pictures, info and feel is just so easy to read and settle in to!

    If there were ever a skin care brand I would die to try it would be kiehl’s. For years I have heard about how incredible their products are, but I just unfortunately cannot come close to affording them. Its embarrassing to admit, but I’m saving as I can for a bigger goal, that will one day soon (hopefully), afford me the luxury to buy and try these beautiful products 🙂 for now though I enjoy reading up on them and especially hearing your thoughts!

    Thank you again for a wonderful post and please don’t stop! I keep finding myself coming back to your blog, Its so very comforting.

    Best regards

    I loved this post! Really helped with getting to know the products. I think i would benefit most from the Ultra Face Cream. My skin always has dry patches and as stated in your description, the cream helps with them. I have been looking around for a good cream because when i apply foundation, these dry patches tend to show and sometimes peel.I also am a teen so acne skin is visible. At the moment i feel like my face cream isn’t moisturizing enough, therefore i would love to choose this product.
    i haven’t really considered Kiehls as an option because i didnt know much about them. But now i feel like it’s worth a try

  153. 27 September 2015 / 17:34

    *prays desperately to win this *
    I have wanted to try Kiehls products for the longest time as I’ve seen the great reviews written here and elsewhere and their products really does entice me .
    Looking at the midnight recovery concentrate I feel as if the product would do such amazing things to my poorly skin and it really does need a bit of help ( a lot of help actually ) ! Also the lip balm would help my really dry cracked lips after the winter bitterness

  154. Elizabeth Watson
    27 September 2015 / 19:55

    I’ve heard so many positive reviews about Kiehls, but the price has always stopped me. I would love to try out the midnight recovery concentrate. I have sensitive skin, that’s a bit dry and definitely needs a pick me up after winter.
