Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser and Toner

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser Review
I'm really late to the party with Kiehl's skincare, but better late than never, ay! I recently finished my beloved Liz Earle cleanse and polish and was on the hunt for something different just for a little change. I put the feelers out on Twitter and lots of you recommended that I try Kiehl's. I went ahead and purchased Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser and Ultra Facial Toner. I've been using both products daily for roughly 3 weeks and I'm really impressed.

To use the cleanser you just need to splash water on your face and massage in to damp skin. It is quite a thick consistency which I don't usually like but it really feels like it is clearing your face of any dirt and grime. It's amazing for makeup removal- I was so surprised after I used the toner to discover next to no leftover makeup on the cotton pad as the facial cleanser had nearly removed all of it.

The toner is probably my favourite product of the two- the consistency is what I can only describe as 'diluted milk' which sounds awful but it's really not! It's so gentle on your skin and I haven't experienced any of the skin tightening or drying that occurs with some toners.

These products combined leave my skin feeling super clean, soft and nourished which is what you hope for from your skincare routine. I opted for the 75ml bottles just in case I didn't get on with them but I will definitely be repurchasing them full size.

My skin is very happy that I've discovered Kiehl's and after receiving a little sample with this purchase, I now have my eye on the Midnight Recovery Concentrate.

Have you tried Kiehl's? What is your favourite product?

Current Beauty Wishlist

I can only apologise for being a little AWOL on the blogging front recently. I have an extremely busy, demanding day job and I'm really struggling to organise myself and get a good work/life balance at the minute! So this post is just a little update to let you all know that I'm still alive and let you take a look at the products that I'm lusting after right now. Hurry up pay day!Beauty Wishlist

1. Tom Ford Lip Color in Negligee £38.00

I'm absolutely obsessed with the entire Tom Ford range although I'm going to have to win the lottery to own it all as the products come with a hefty price tag. I'm really drawn to the stunning, luxury packaging (of course) and I can imagine that the products are incredible quality. They have so many lipsticks shades in the range but I'm particularly drawn to this deep plum lipstick, Negligee and I really need to own it.

2. Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation £29.50

I have a feeling this may be the new revolutionary product that will become very highly sought after among bloggers. It has everything that you could ever ask for in a foundation- SPF, full coverage but weightless feel, anti-ageing, acne coverage and pore minimizing qualities. It also comes in 15 shades! I really hope it lives up to the expectations and I can't wait to get my hands on one.

3. Smashbox Full Exposure Eye Palette (Travel Size) £17.50

I need this palette in my life before I jet off to New York in October. These eyeshadow shades look absolutely beautiful and have everything you need in one palette- shimmers and mattes for day & night looks-plus it comes in a travel size for £17.50 which is just perfect.

4. Kiko Metallic Shine Eyeshadow in Strong Chocolate £6.90

Kiko is a range that I am yet to try but I have seen so much hype around this brand within the blogosphere. I haven't seen any complaints about any of the products so far- I've been browsing their website and I have a list as long as my arm. I am in love with this Strong Chocolate eyeshadow shade and it's a total steal for £6.90!

5. Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop £30.00

Probably the biggest blogging hype product at the minute but I can see why- from what I have seen on Twitter, it is absolutely gorgeous. I will definitely be purchasing this product when I go to the U.S. next month.

Do you own any of these products? What products will you be buying after payday?!
