Why, Kiehl’s, why?

23 Jun

Why must you discontinue the products I love most?

First it was your pretty, scented lip glosses. I could handle that, though – I have a million lip glosses, and yours really were no better than many others.

But your Milk, Honey & Almond Scrub? REALLY, KIEHL’S? REALLY???? One of two facial exfoliators I use constantly – the other being Kate Somerville’s ExfoliKate¬†– and you’re taking it from me? The girl at the store told me it “wasn’t as popular” as some of your other scrubs, but the reviews on your website seem overwhelmingly positive. She recommended some other scrub of yours that’s unscented – the smell of the Milk, Honey & Almond Scrub was half the reason I loved it!

I have run out of reasons to go into your store now. Thanks for nothing, Kiehl’s.

Kiehl’s Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion

7 Mar

I LOOOOOVE body lotion. I think I mentioned before, I have a whole big bag of it that I am slowly working through. Currently, I am using¬†Kiehl’s Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion, and I gotta say, it’s aight… but just aight.

It smells nice – citrusy.
It moisturizes reasonably well.
It goes on smoothly and doesn’t leave a greasy feeling.

When it sinks in, it kinda smells like pot. (I am not the only one who has noticed this.)
It has a slightly grainy texture.
I’m not sure it’s that much better than any other moisturizer I have used, but it sure does cost more.

I also kind of half hopped on the whole argan oil bandwagon, but have not been particularly impressed by what I have experienced with it, so I am almost put off by it now – it’s starting to seem like a silly fad. I also see no basis for this lotion’s claims that it improves “skin’s texture and resilience,” either, but that could just be me.

Overall, I’m divided on this. If you already have a moisturizer you love, I’d say don’t bother. If you’re looking for a new one, maybe give this one a try and see if you like it. You can get it fairly cheap on Amazon at the link above.

Here is a picture of my puppy.

I hope this will both make your Wednesday better, AND distract you from the fact that I have not been keeping up with my blog.

I promise to get something up later today… think Kiehl’s, Tarina Tarantino, and Smashbox!
