Throughout the colder months I’ve noticed some small but obvious changes to my skin. Normally, I have combination-oily skin that is easily controllable with my skin care, so I’ve never had any issues. However, I started noticing sensitive/dry areas around my face that none of my usual skincare would solve (as its all for my combination/oily skin type). I also noticed discoloration around my mouth and underneath my eyes. My eye problem was largely due to lack of sleep, which was creating very dark circles that would never go away. At last, I’ve finally found 3 absolute skin saviours to solve all 3 problems. All products are from Kiehls as they have the most incredible selection of product for every skin type.

Kiehl’s Centella Recovery Skin-Salve

This effective moisturiser is a must if you’re suffering with dehydrated, sensitive skin. The product works best with temporary skin issues, such as random patches of dryness and slight dehydration. In particular, I suffered quite bad with dryness around my nose and it looked awful with makeup on top, but this has honestly saved my skin and bought more hydration back than ever. It’s a lifesaver! I use the product day and night, and a small amount goes a very long way. You can always use the product on your body. Anyone looking for a product like this then anyone can use it as its gentle enough to work well with all skin generic accutane isotretinoin types. Its formula has been clinically demonstrated to soothe temporarily irritated and sensitive skin. RRP £40.00
Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution
By far this is my favourite as I’ve suffered with discoloured skin around my mouth for some time now. It first became visible about a year ago, it hasn’t necessarily got any worse overtime but it has been there staring straight back at me. With this product the discoloration has started to visibly disappear. Not only has my skin became clarified and corrected, my overall skin tone looks much more even. It comes with a pipet, so you simply apply two drops morning and night, before your moisturiser, to rapidly correct dark spots and discolorations. For visible correction and clarity. RRP £36.00
Kiehl’s Rosa Artica Eye Balm

I never thought I’d be stuck using an eye cream so early on in my life, but I find this formula very enjoyable. It’s a youth regenerating eye balm with Rare “Resurrection Flower”, so the texture is very creamy and smooth to apply. This eye balm replenishesand nourishes the skin under your eye, diminishing the look of dark circles and lines whilst protecting moisture loss. I’ve noticed my eyes to look instantly brightened and much more awake, which is perfect for the mornings. Simply apply a small amount, both morning and night. RRP £35.00
Which skin type are you? And, what are your saviour products?

  • The eye balm sounds fab, I'll have to give that a go 🙂


  • I would love to try all of these. I definitely have some issues that I would like to repair!

  • The skin salve sounds like it'll do a really good job. And I really need to start using eye cream again, not sure why I stopped. In all honesty I probably wouldn't spend this much on such a small tub but I might give it a look online and maybe try it if and when it's on offer.

    Love Hannah xx

  • I keep hearing wonderful things about Kiehls. Their products seem so lovely, but so expensive! I've been doing some research to see which products are actually worth the money, and the dark spot corrector looks like a winner. I'll have to keep that one in mind, thanks for the recommendations!

  • I have the most sensitive, dry skin, no matter what time of year. My saviour products are coconut oil and First Aid Beauty. I've also love Tarte's Maracuja Oil. I mix it in with my moisturizer. I'm so curious about the Kiehl's eye balm. My eye area is so dry.

  • right now I am experiencing more than usual dryness and just waiting to see if it's the winter cold on my face or age settling in. Hope it's just the dry weather & NOT age 😉

  • I will look for this cream, as now in the Winter I'm suffering from dry skin more than usual and so far nothing helped.

  • It is very difficult, but these products have really helped me!

  • I have combo skin, but tends to dry out in the Winter. It looks like a great product to try adding to my lineup!

  • I have never heard of Kiehl – sounds like excellent products! I deal with tired eyes most mornings, it sounds like the eye balm would help me.

  • It always amazes me how my skin type changes with weather and different locations. I've never tried any Kiehl's products but they certainly sound like they'd be helpful! Thank you for introducing me to them!

  • I've used products in the past that wowed me to, so I'm sure they wouldn't disappoint!

  • It's never really affected me as much as now so these products are massively improving my skin! 🙂 no problem!

  • I feel like see a lot of people using Kiehl's products and have been curious about the brand. These products seem so soothing and relaxing for a spa night or just for a nightly regimen. It's never too early to use eye cream. You can't leave those out of the moisturizing process!

  • Right now my saviour products have been Tata Harper, I'm obsessed! However I've been hearing a lot about Kiehl's lately, so I'm very, very tempted to try!

  • I've heard of Kiehl's products but have never used them before. I think I might have to give them a try.

  • They definetely are products to pamper with! I agree, I'm so glad I've started using an eye cream early on X

  • I've never heard of that brand so I'm going to check it out 🙂 x

  • They're so worth the money, amazing quality products!!

  • I have an oily skin. I need to step up my game and take care of it. The eye balm looks amazing

  • I mainly use Clinique but I want to try Kiehl! This was a good introduction to a disparate variety of brands! I agree with others, eye balm looks amazing!

  • That eye stuff sounds really great! My eyes are often super swollen and it's good to try something new!

  • Do you know if these are cruelty free? I only buy cruelty free products with non-animal ingredients? Also definitely wear eye cream no matter your age! Wish I'd taken better care of my skin when I was younger!

  • It is amazing, such a great product!

  • Thank you – glad I helped 🙂

  • Mine used to be in the mornings but the eye balm really helps that !
