Immediately following ones 25th birthday, you may be scrambling with the extreme feels of adulthood thinking “Am I set in my career of choice?” “When will I be getting married?” or “To hell with being an adult… paying rent sucks!”. But if you’re anything like me, you may have just completely dyed your hair blonde for the first time (because you suddenly had to confirm if blondes have more fun) and post-reading Cosmopolitan at the salon, looked in the mirror and decided “Now it’s time to get my face to look like unicorn skin!”

Think I’m kidding? Damn near before the bleach could be washed out of my scalp, I had sprinted before traffic to the nearest Kiehls store, which was across the street, to embark on this facial journey. Prior to this moment, I had coveted the Neutrogena and Origins products we’ve all grown up using, but I was adult now and wanted my routine to feel more “adult like” too!

Immediately, I was greeted by a young woman of color, and from that moment on was given personalized treatment— from a complimentary dehydration analysis to building and selecting a product line that accompanied the results! Note: Just because you’re skin is oily or combination DOESN’T mean it’s hydrated + don’t attempt to only buy products to fit the color scheme of your bathroom vanity (yes, I’m OCD, crazy and would do this).

If you have beyond dehydrated skin like ya girl, here are the Top 5 Kiehls products I used to completely change my skin (plus Botox, but that’s another read):

1. Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash

This gel cleanser is highly effective for ridding impurities and dirt from your skin creating cleaner, smoother, softer skin when used daily! 

2. Ultra Facial Oil-Free Toner

An oil-free toner was just what my skin needed since I have the most oily t-zone ever! This product is formulated to reduce excess oil on the skin’s surface while removing dirt and residue. This product was one of my favs that I used everyday because it did not strip my skin of moisture.  

3. Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution

Though I didn’t use this serum daily, I used it when I messed with my acne and created dark spots, this serum diminishes the appearance of dark spots to give you brighter and more radiant skin! P.S It’s great for African American skin.

4. Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Mask

After my first go at Coachella 2017, I came home and my skin legit felt like a reptile’s… It was so dry and crusty I had to get a remedy quick! This was it! This mask helped soothe and hydrate my ashy face and trust me when you put it on you won’t want to take it off!!

5. Midnight Recovery Concentrate

I applied this facial oil nightly which helped to give my skin some life after long days of stress, pollution, etc.! It’s a customer fav, and I believe you won’t be disappointed if you give it a try! Just get it ok!
