Review: Kiehl’s Glow Formula Skin Hydrator

Hi Beauties,

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

Overall Thoughts:

  • 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

  1. Awesome review Rachel! I have had my eye on this product for a minute but I’m now pretty sure this isn’t what I thought it would be. I thought it was a skin brightener like their Vitamin C serum so I might get that instead.

  2. I see Kiehl’s everywhere on Instagram and I’ve heard so many good things about their products. They’re definitely a brand on my ‘to try’ list, do you have any product recommendations?
