If you’re a beauty junkie like me you would have seen The Anna Edit raving about this new gem from Kiehl’s, Glow Formula Skin Hydrator*. So when this landed on my doorstep about 2 months ago I was like gimmie! Since getting pregnant and with the change of weather my skin is needing that added hydration so I started to incorporate it immediately into my skincare regime.
What Kiehl’s says about the Glow Formula Skin Hydrator:
- Instantly illuminates skin for a healthy-looking glow
- Boosts skin radiance over time with the benefits of antioxidant protection
- Enriched with Pomegranate Extract and Illuminating Minerals
- Formulated with 95% naturally derived ingredients
- For all skin types and skin tones
- Retails for $44.20 AUD for 50ml which is quite reasonable in my opinion
- It has an iridescent pearly colour- but doesn’t add any coverage so it really does suit all skin tones (I’m wearing it below)
- Kiehl’s recommends applying it in any of the following ways: alone as your moisturiser, with your moisturiser or with your foundation
- I’ve tried all three ways and I prefer to mix a pump with my moisturiser
- After applying it I notice my skin looks instantly more radiant- not glowy or shiny. You can’t really tell below, but honestly it does have a nice radiant look
- It also has no glitter particles which is awesome in my opinion
- The texture is not overly creamy as I would expect a hydrating product to be
- Throughout the day when I use this with no makeup I feel like my skin looks more dry, like all the moisture is being sucked out of my skin
- I also think it does extenuate my pores ever so slightly
I’ve really tried to love this but for some reason its not providing me with the added hydration I need. I find when I use my other hydrating serum during the day it provides me with the added hydration my skin needs and also leaves my skin looking luminous.
I seem to be the only one that doesn’t love this. There’s plenty of positive reviews so if you’re keen on trying this I still recommend you should. Kiehl’s is always great with samples so make sure to try before you buy x
