First things first, let me give you a tiny bit of background about Calendula before I get into my review…
Calendula a.k.a the Marigold, is a plant that can be used in many different ways & in different forms. When the herb extracts are used, this plant can be used for treating acne, reducing inflammation, soothing irritated tissue, promotes fast healing & regeneration of the skin which is why it is used so frequently when it comes to issues with the skin.
Like many of you I suffer with oily skin. Because I get so oily, I tend to get clusters of tiny little white heads in the center of my forehead, on my cheeks, around my nose & on my chin. I exfoliate daily with Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant & use my Clarisonic about 3 times per week but I still was seeing a major buildup of those nasty little comedones. One day after a facial, where she extracted those tiny white heads, I stopped by the Kiehl’s store to try out some new skin care products (facial cleanser, toner & moisturizer) & it was there that I was introduced to their Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash, Calendula Herbal- Extract Alcohol Free Toner & the Ultra Facial Oil Free Gel Cream.
By using all the 3 products together, 2x daily, over the past 2 weeks, I have really noticed a significant difference in my skin. I am not as oily as I was before, there isn’t a buildup of comedones, & my skin feels moisturized but not greasy. My favorite part about my regiment is that each product is fragrance free so I don’t have to worry about allergic reactions or fragrance induced breakouts. The cleanser doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight or dry after washing & the toner is wonderful because it is alcohol free which means it doesn’t burn! Once I am finished cleansing and toning I apply my moisturizer, which is also fragrance free, to damp skin. Applying it to damp skin allows the product to absorb into the skin for deep down hydration. Once I am finished, I apply my eye cream & call it a night. My face feels refreshed & revitalized which is an amazing feeling when you have faced the world all day.
